This weekend recap is coming to you day later than I intended, but in my defense, this is my mom’s last week in town, and we are trying to fit in a lot in our last few days together. Our weekend kicked off with trip to Thomasville, GA. My mom, my friend Lexie, and I decided we needed to start our Saturday with brunch at Liam’s, one of my mother’s and my all time favorite brunch spots. Their menu is locally inspired and constantly changing, and even after all this time, it never disappoints.
My mom is a huge fan of their famous house coffee beverage, the “Rude Awakening”: three shots of espresso, two tablespoons of sugar, and quite a bit of deliciously steamed milk. As you can see, it makes her very happy 🙂 I also got to try Masa pancakes, which was a first for me, and I have to say it was pretty great. I could absolutely see myself whipping these up at home, maybe with a little home made honey butter.From there, we walked around downtown for a bit. We visited our favorite shops, enjoyed the Autumn decor, and tried to pretend that it wasn’t still crazy hot outside. Some day I will live in a place that isn’t 90 degrees in the “Fall”. How great is this ceiling?! I would love to have something like this in my house someday. Perhaps when I make a lot more money and have purchased that townhouse in Savannah I’ve been dreaming of? We grabbed some Italian sodas for the drive home; I went with Blackberry and my friend Lexie opted for a Caramel Cream soda that she called “life changing”. Yeah, we worked in brunch on Sunday, too. This time at Kool Beanz here in Tallahassee. It was awesome, and I regret nothing. How was your weekend?
Happy Monday everyone! I finally downloaded the most recent batch of photos from my camera; the majority of which were taken when my mom was visiting for her birthday. While she was here, we took a day trip across the border to Thomasville, Georgia which has a small, but eclectic, downtown full of quirky shops and eateries. After trying a few of these places out last year we knew exactly where we wanted to take Mom for Saturday brunch, this great little place right off main street called Liam’s . Liam’s was also part of the 12 new restaurants I tried last year for my 26 before 27. They recently had revamped their menu, and i’ll admit I was a little afraid that the bloom might have gone off the rose, but the food was incredible as always.
Did you see the two giant cups of coffee? Scroll back up, I’ll wait…..yeah, those aren’t cups they’re bowls. Allow me to introduce the Rude Awakening, three shots of espresso, two tablespoons of sugar and steamed milk. Definitely does the trick, I was so wired it felt like the hair on my arms was standing up.
