Cheddar Cornmeal Waffles with Eggs

Cheddar Cornmeal Waffles with Eggs

My son turned two yesterday! Oh my goodness, he is so big! We had a wonderful weekend relaxing on Saturday and prepping for my littler mans birthday party! On Sunday we had a super fun and delicious Mickey Mouse themed party! It was gorgeous, perfect weather, most everyone that is close to my son was there…it was a spectacular day! Yesterday was his actual birthday, so my soon-to-be- hubs, took the day off and we took our son to Jokers, (like a Chuck E Cheese!) and spent all day together as a family, had another cake for him, got his favorite pizza, and gave him his birthday presents! It was so much fun! Now if only someone can slow down time so my kids don’t grow up so fast, then things would be perfect! 😉

We’re in crunch time here for my wedding…17 days away! I’m so excited! There are so many last minute details that you never think about…I don’t have a spare minute these days! I love it though! I like being busy, and wedding planning is fun! What a fabulous job that must be!! I can imagine the hardest part is dealing with bridezillas…auyy yi yi! Quick survey though folks! Have you ever had or been to a wedding that has limited booze and only served beer and wine? If you could answer in the comments, it would be tremendously helpful! Thanks friends!

    Yet another breakfast I really need you to make me! Don’t be surprised if I show up on your doorstep one morning! 🙂 And as for limited alcohol, what about making a really fun mocktail? That will encourage people to drink something other than the booze. People tend to take one sip of a drink, put it down, forget about it, and go grab another one. Giving them another option might work.

    These look so yummy!
    To answer your question: I’ve been to a wedding that only had beer & wine. It was totally fine, maybe because I am not a big drinker but no one else seemed to mind. Most people at least like one or the other enough to deal with not having liquor for one evening. I also think it helps keep people from getting too intoxicated, too quickly.

    Hi! My husband and I only served beer, wine and champagne. It was great, no one minded at all. We had 2 microbrew kegs, one pale ale and one amber, plus 4 different wines to choose from. It also saved on cost tremendously, and because we had a casual atmosphere- we did not pay for a bartender. People just poured themselves whatever they wanted! Many blessings to you and yours on your special day!

      Thanks so much for the info!! We ended up serving everything, and had more of a problem with people sneaking in their own! I suppose people will do what theyre going to do! But none the less, it was an absolutely wonderful & perfect day!! Thank you so very much! 🙂
