My Perfect Mother's Day - A Trip Down Movie Lane
Waking up after sleeping in, I’m greeted with a breakfast on perfectly cooked eggs sitting on a warm freshly baked croissant topped with black forest ham, melted Havarti and a touch of stone ground mustard. Of course there is a tall cup of coffee topped with whipped cream within my grasp as well.
I’m spending the morning relaxing while watching my all-time favorite musical, Little Shop of Horrors. Yeah, I know I’m weird. Looking back, it was totally inappropriate, but I remember watching it when I was kid and loving the music and of course the famous line “Feed me Seymour.”
Of course, I can’t watch the movie without my favorite movie snack, a plate piled high with nachos!
For lunch, my friends and I are taken to dine at Monsieur Paul, at Epcot. Bouquets of my favorite, Tulips, greet us upon our arrival before I sit down to enjoy the meal. I will start with the Assiette de Saumon mi-cuit mariné, salade de concombre, have the St. Jacques d'Hiver, émulsion de crème au rhum for my entree and finish it up with a Soufflé chaud au Grand Marnier, sauce à l'orange for dessert.
On our way home, our car unexpectedly hits a time warp and we are transported back to the set of my favorite romantic film!
I find myself playing the role of my favorite character of Guinevere.
Suddenly, I’m Hollywood’s next big star! I’m strutting down every red carpet and being invited to all the exclusive premiers. I’m even dating the hottest movie star, Johnny Depp, and our couple name is JJ.
Suddenly I wake up, completely skeeved out that I was dreaming about a man old enough to be my father. I drift my eyes over to the clock that reads 9:00 am, breath in the sweet smell of coffee and breath a sigh of relief that I’m in my own bed and it was just a dream.
I’m greeted my kids shouting that they want me to cook breakfast because daddy doesn't make it right before we all curl up together for a perfect mother’s day filled with second breakfast and a viewing of The Hobbit.
