Holiday Breakfast in Bed

Doesn't this look like a little bit of heaven on earth?



I'll tell you a secret, if you'll promise not to tell a certain someone. . . .
I have a surprise for my "Santa" this Christmas. . . .a Holiday Breakfast in bed. . . .I got the idea this morning. . . .







 I found myself at home alone today--rain was pitter-pattering on the tin roof. . . .A lazy kind of day. . . .I love napping when it's cloudy and gray. . . .Hmmmmm. . . .Maybe this was a day to pamper myself. . . .




Maybe a pot of coffee, a few magazines, turn on the Christmas tree, and enjoy the silence. . . .
What a wonderful morning. . . .




 After a short nap, I awoke with an idea. . . .what I think is an inspired idea. . . .a special Christmas breakfast in bed for my "Santa Honey". . . .




So, I did a trial run. . . .I'd just made my "famous" Moon Pie Bread Pudding. . . .Ok--so it's not world famous--yet. . . .but, it IS delicious!
There was still some coffee left. . . .How should I arrange the tray?

It wasn't long until I had everything set up the way I wanted. . . .Then I finished decorating the bedroom for Christmas. . . . and took photographs so I wouldn't forget how I arranged the tray. . . .



 Thought I'd share them with you. . . .



I'm depending on all of you to keep my secret. . . .Maybe I'll surprise him on Christmas Eve, since things get a little hectic after that. . . .What do you think?. . . Can you keep my secret?. . . .




If you promise you will, I'll share the recipe for Moon Pie Bread Pudding tomorrow. . . .



Of course, after going to all this trouble arranging the tray, someone had to get back in bed and enjoy it . . . .

Ahhhhh. . . . a little bit of heaven. . . .


from my farmhouse to yours. . . .

Getting back in bed and eating that is a dirty job, but someone has to do it. lol! What a sweet surprise for Santa hubby. I'll try not to tell. Sure hope he doesn't read this. My hubby reads mine. No secrets safe on my blog. Love your beautiful and cozy room. The tray looks like it dropped down straight from heaven.
