📍Keke’s | Lake Nona
Good Morning, Brunch lovers. (Evening really). This morning started late, like all Sundays should. While taking out the pans to dirty my kitchen with breakfast, we decided to just go to our favorite place - Keke’s! If you’re local to Orlando, I’ve probably seen you waiting in line with me; nonetheless, I keep catching myself talking to people who’ve never been. To those people I say, “Welcome to Brunch Heaven”.
I had the Banana Nut Caramel Waffle with #eggs over-easy and bacon. Whether I go to the Lake Nona stop or the Lake Mary one, both the service and food is consistent. These #waffles are trademark. They’re always light and have that perfect crisp edges, even under that whip. The second plate was home fries (custom added with some #bacon and #cheese ) wheat toast, a huge Three Meat Omelet. They’re so huge. I can never finish one on my own, but I’ll my guest didn’t lace a bite left on his plate. One of my favorite things about Keke’s aside from their cleanliness, amazing staff, and even more incredible food. They have lunch options too. I always stick with breakfast, so I’ll just stick with that review. Their sandwiches are huge too. They look amazing. I’ll have to pick one up next time for sure. I’ll do a follow-up post later, just for my own peace of mind. It definitely get my #orlandosfinest hashtag. #bestoforlando#orlando#coffee#eggsandbacon#moreplease#sofull#brunch#sundayfunday#sleepy#dontcookjusteat#eatwithme#eatwithmeorlando#orlandobites#OJ#orangestateofmind#sunshinestate#kekesbreakfastcafe#kekes
"I am new to selling my handmade goods, but I started out knitting scarves when I was about 10. I also started sewing at a young age, as my mom is an avid sewer as well. The first few baby blankets I made were for relatives, as it seemed they all were expecting around the same time. Instead of purchasing gifts for them all, I decided to try my hand at making the gifts! Everyone I sent these blankets to was extremely pleased, and between the suggestions from them and my husband, this little shop was created!" -Ashlee Harris, Harris Handicrafts (2018 Avon Spring Avant-Garde Art & Craft Show Vendor)
Me: *Takes two bites*
Aaron’s dad: Ready for another plate?
Me: No not yet 🤣
Aaron’s dad: Don’t make me call your doctor and tell her you’re not eating right 🤣🤣 ***************** I think this is more than enough for breakfast 🙃
Introducing a little something new............
🥞Pancakes + Prunes! On this lovely Sunday and many more Sundays to come this will be a day to reflect, dig inside the soul, and post about whatever I can to help boost the spirit and create happiness, BUT being real at the same time (hence the title “Pancakes and Prunes” ... a little sweet and tart at the same time) . Inspired by life and my new norm and role 👉🏼 #entrepreneurmomcaretakerwife I have struggled with balance, self worth, second guessing, over working, being a mom, and worrying, that anxiety, stress, and all the baggage that comes with it has begun to creep in. So I’m taking a stand, and taking control over me. Starting today👇🏽! The
#Sundaystruggle is real ya’ll..... but not anymore. .
😊 I don’t know about you but I’ll speak for myself. The weekend typically takes forever to get here and when it does it’s zooms by. Running from place to place, errands, birthday parties, theatre class, tball, groceries, gym, you name it. Then boom it’s Sunday already. If your like me your thinking, “where did the weekend go” or more like “wtf it’s Sunday already” and then immediately the #sundayblues hits. For me, it doesn’t matter how fab my job is, or how amazing life and my family are, I still get down to start another week, sad that I didn’t get to spend enough time with my kids (even though they make me want to rip my hair out at times), or that we just didn’t get enough time to make more memories or do absolutely nothing! You feel me? So my solution to this is detox. Detox from over committing, social media, negative and toxic people, and invest in a few things over the weekend that can feed your soul. Start by waking up and literally before you put your feet on the ground set your intention for the day. 👈🏼 That right there alone has saved me many days of saddness, and worrisome thoughts.
Go take a walk, read a book, play UNO (our go to) or hang at your house without the television or any stimulant. JUST DETOX and see all the goodness you will gain and how much happier you will feel about the weekend coming to a close and how ready and willing you will be to start Monday. 😘 xxoo #katemckaydesigns
