The Gauntlet’s Been Thrown…I Challenge You To Find A Better Waffle!! After Visiting First Watch – The Daytime Cafe in Katy, Texas

My Mother’s Day was spectacular!!! My perfect, beautiful daughter and her fantabulous, handsome hubby took me to First Watch – The Daytime Cafe in Katy, Texas for a WONDERFUL breakfast!  

Tip:  Go early and ask for Arianne’s table – she’s awesome and will soon become either a 1st or 2nd grade teacher – Sure her students and their parents will adore her too!

We even got these cute boxes of chocolates as their gift to us for Mother’s Day – nice touch!
Ms. Arianne Hoffman – Best Server EVER! 

I ordered the Belgian Waffle that comes with a side of warm, berry compote, (I also spread some of my daughter’s strawberry jam on it) – now when I tell you that waffle was good…I have to say it was the best waffle I’ve ever eaten ($7.99) !!! Eh..hemm…ONLY because it was Mother’s Day, (I’m lying thru my teeth), I also ordered the Millionaire’s Bacon (Four slices of hardwood smoked bacon baked with brown sugar, black pepper, cayenne and a maple syrup drizzle)…OMG it IS yummy!!

So good!

Mr. Handsome ordered the Chickichanga Whipped eggs with spicy, all-natural chicken breast, chorizo, green chilies, Cheddar, Monterey Jack, onions and avocado rolled in a flour tortilla. Topped with Vera Cruz sauce and all-natural sour cream. Served with fresh fruit and fresh, seasoned potatoes – $10.79 

Image-1 (10)Mrs. Beautiful ordered the (Farmhouse) Skillet Hash (Two cage-free eggs atop fresh, seasoned potatoes, bacon, avocado, house-roasted onions and tomatoes with Cheddar and Monterey Jack) – $10.99

Obviously it was a complete thumbs up for me! Though not fast in getting the food, it was worth the wait! For sure going back!!! Mr. Handsome and Mrs. Beautiful both thoroughly enjoyed their orders too and reminded me everything is “farm fresh” and made from scratch and they support local farmers.”

Then it was off to see “Snatched” which we all loved  – pretty ridiculously funny!!! Next, hung out with my crazy son and watched (bummer), the Spurs lose…but still nice spending some time with my baby boy too! Had a WONDERFUL day!!! Thanks!!! Love you all!!!

Take care!

City of Katy Off Leash Dog Park

IMG_8822-1 (1)

Since I was recently in Katy, Texas with Max to check out Mary Jo Peckham Park, I decided to go next door to the City Of Katy Off Leash Dog Park.  They have a little pups area that is more for dogs Max sized and then the big dog area.  Max loves to go to the big park area as it’s so much more room to wander, so a let him as long as I don’t see any ruff  🙂 pups and I leave his leash on but let it drag behind him in case I need to grab him quickly. IMG_8791-1

Max loves to just spend forever sniffing! Whatever makes him happy 🙂 IMG_8950-1

Met all sorts of friendly little pups there.
