Quick & Easy Breakfast!

Last Friday I mentioned how I made breakfast for Matt as my sort of gift to him for our anniversary.  Christina @ Carolina Charm came up with this awesome idea & did it for her husband as an early Valentine's breakfast!  Smart cookie that girl!

I of course loving the idea wanted to recreate this for my Matt.  (Christina's hubs is Matt too!)
I'm sure Christina planned more ahead of time for this yummy breakfast but, I... I did not.
So, here I was running around the night before Valentine's trying to find 1 just ONE heart shaped cookie cutter.  I tell no lies when I say I went to 5 stores that day!  Finally, I found them at Michael's.

Once home I locked myself in the office & went to work.  I knew I wanted to put my own touch to this project so... I had some spare Valentine's scrap book paper that I cut out a small heart & a large heart.

I cut out the small heart & taped it to the side of the mason jar
Filled with yummy Apple Juice the next morning

And since I leave the house before the sun comes up, I wanted Matt to have some sort of idea what was going on.  On the large heart I left him a little note on the table with instructions of where to find his breakfast

Thursday morning I got up bright & early... so early when I left I was 20 minutes early for work & THAT never happens!  So I got up, snuck in the kitchen & started working away.  After the waffles were toasted & cut, I set the table just how I wanted... & then took obligatory blogger pics, of course.

& yes, this is my reality!  #gofigure

All together this took about 10 minutes, tops.  I used the frozen waffles as Christina did & had the other stuff already prepared!  Quick & easy... my kind of breakfast!

Matt was really surprised when he got up that morning because sadly in the four years we've been together I've never done something like this for him.  I enjoyed doing it for him & he liked his breakfast, win win!  Christina & I both agree that it would be so fun to do this same thing (or something similar) for other special occasions... so let the cookie cutter buying begin!
