Do not read this.....

I warned you.




apparently you must be a lot like me...




with you're listening skills.








One could argue though....




that reading is different then listening....




so in that case....




i suppose it's ok.




This is a warning...




if you continue to read this...




and drool all over your keyboard...




or worse yet....




leave your children at home alone




to head out for breakfast with your girlfriends...




then i am




not




accountable




for




your




actions.




Alrighty then....




if you are still here and want to read...




then i shall tell you about my saturday.




Let's start off with what we ordered first.




no...it was not a mimosa....




even though the pear and current mimosa was calling my name.




calling my name really loudly...




but i declined.




We started off with:




grilled polenta & herbed chevre & sliced pears with a honey ginger sauce.




{i'm drooling all over now as i type away}















are you still here.....




good.




Seriously...who needs to cook breakfast when you can go out...




or is that just me....




i like to go out for breakfast.....




it's my favorite meal of the day...




that is....if i can go out.




Really...one can only eat so much oatmeal at home




before they turn into oats themselves.




After our little shared first course...




we moved on.




I ordered tri colored benedict.




{yes..i'm drooling again..}




Eggs benny ....

herbed hollandaise sauce.....

&



sun dried tomatoes...




with a balsamic drizzle.












or you could have been one of my friends..




and ordered...




a breakfast quesadilla.




Spinach...avocado...




cheese from the cheese maker that resides




in the back of the restaurant.




Sliced pears that are grown on the pear tree in the front yard.




just wanted to make sure you were still here.




buehler...




hello...






















At this point you really are going to want to stop.




I'm warning you.




STOP RIGHT HERE




Unless of course you like to look at houses...









because i had an appointment to see a charming house




that's for sale.....




a few blocks from the restaurant.




I know what you are thinking...




why is she looking at a house?




I know....




my husband thinks the same thing.




But....




he doesn't question me anymore.




We have a solid relationship....




it's a ...




don't ask....don't tell policy.




He doesn't ask anymore...




and i don't tell.




This policy doesn't work for everyone.....




it didn't work for the Army....




but it works in the Buick household.












I am going to let you just peruse thru this plaqued historic home...




built in 1860.




I am also not going to tell you that it's for sale....




or that the lovely owner let me in ..




or that i tried to lock him out of his own home...




so that i could sit on his lovely furniture...




or take a bath in his claw foot tub..




or lick his Swedish antique clock...




{did i just say ..lick the clock!?..}










































































If you made it through.....




and managed to survive ...




i commend you.




Disclaimer: I {kasey} am not held accountable from this day forward




for anyone drooling over their keyboard, leaving their children home




alone so that they can meet friends for breakfast, nor am i held




accountable for anyone entering a home that is for sale just to take photos.




Nor am i accountable for anyone taking a hostage so that one can experience




a hot bath in a claw foot tub.




Signed: kasey buick

Cute Beams said...

hometown girl said...

breakfast is one of my favorite meals! and that house is beyond amazing!

Low Tide High Style said...

That breakfast looked so yummy! And that house is equally as delicious! All of that white slip covered furniture and that claw foot tub, sigh! I would have taken a hostage and licked that clock too!

Kat :)

paula said...

Can I have the breakfast in that house? Now that would be lovely.

Deb said...

Kacey said...

Yum to both. Really.

Simply Mel said...

Truly unfair .... I should learn to follow directions given in the very first sentence!

Drooling now.

The Little Red Shop said...

What a sweet day you had! Now, go have some more so we can drool.

Wendy said...

oh...made my heart skip a beat. we tried to buy an old farm house
built in 1878. put our house for sale and everything...owners pulled out of the contract to rent it instead. still sad about it! That is one beautiful farmhouse! Love the clock, too!
Wendy

Martha said...

Holy goodness to both...are you kidding me...I really should have listened to the title...but then again...that wouldn't be like me...they are both just utterly wonderful...that I refuse to go back and look at any pictures...refuse...okay maybe not...but thought I would try to convince myself:)

Raining Pearls said...

Tri colored bene... I'm weak! That door, I'm done ;)

J.J. said...

what a drool-fest!

Oh yea...I saw that white truffle oil at the store and I am going back to get it tomorrow to make that macaroni and cheese heaven of yours! I would have gotten it today...but I had all 4 kiddos and I needed to get the other cheesy stuff that goes in it anyway.

I'll let you know how it goes!!!

Kelly Berkey said...

i will not be ok until i have that quesadilla...omg that looked amazing.

Gail said...

You're funny. You just put watching the Olympics (which I love) on the back burner. Great post...lovely breakfast...lovely house. Did you fall in love with it?

Calamity Anne said...

You won me with the Eggs Benedict...then I went completely over the edge when I saw that mile-high bed!!! Swoon!!!

Victoria@WhimsybyVictoria said...

What a great way to spend the day! A yummy breakfast and a beautiful, breathtaking home! I am coveting that distressed turquoise farm table...I know, I shouldn't covet...but that is gorgeous! Oh, the door and little cobblestone step in the back...*sigh* love at first sight!

Thanks for sharing.

Hugs,
Victoria

That food looks soooo good. I'm already looking forward to breakfast! Are you sure that's not your second home? It is decorated like a Kasey home. Are you living a double life with someone else without children. That house looks way to clean to have children!! XOXO

Dreamy Whites said...

Oh my goodness!!!! I can't get enough of you and your blog! I have to tell you it kills me with suspense when you tease us before showing us the pictures!!! You are so much fun! That house is pretty sweet. Thank you for thinking of all of us, and sharing your pictures!
Take Care,
Maria
I would like to be the lucky friend you were having breakfast with!

Jerri said...

Lori said...

You warned me but I kept on anyway.... Eggs Benedict is my favorite breakfast ever ~ we will sometimes do breakfast for supper ~ yummy. Speaking of yummy ~ that house is gorgeous Kasey ~ thanks for sharing and making me laugh again today!!

Anita said...

Look at it this way- if your house burns down and everything is destroyed, you could make this guy an offer, everything included....Good girl you are, always being prepared. Girl Scout.

Morning T said...

OMG I just wiped my keyboard clean after looking at that house! The food looked yummy too~ but that house and that clock and that chippy green table and those slip covers...ah.
Hugs~

The food looked delicious but I would go without food if I could have the house. OH MY WORD. Drooling and probably broke my keyboard. Thanks girl. Are we like twins, separated at birth? You know just what to post to make me want to hang out here all day.

Mary said...
