Breakfast Out Of Bed

October 11, 2010

I slept so well last night. I don’t think we’d ever buy a king size bed. We love our four-poster and the sheets are mighty expensive. However, whenever we sleep royally while traveling, I always sleep so well!

Matt got up to have a farewell breakfast with Andrew while I dozed for another 45 minutes or so, dreaming that I was locked in a hospital room illegally!?

He returned with breakfast in bed. Although, I hate breakfast in bed! Something about getting the sheets all twisted grosses me out. So I got up to dine at our little couch + coffee table living room :mrgreen:

I had more of that fabulous Whole Grain Goodness with a smashed banana and Cinnamon Vanilla Sunflower Butter. I love eating this with a fork! And smashed banana is the BEST. It gets all soft and gooey and you can get some in each bite – no slices falling off!

On the side, honeydew and a hard-boiled eggin

And a little brown water. Must seek better coffee when we hit the road!

I have a running date when we arrive in Charlotte, so once we pack up we’re off.

I don’t like breakfast in bed either. I think it is gross and = lots of crumbs!

I am so glad you wrote you hate breakfast in bed – I thought I was the only one! It’s awkward, uncomfortable, stuff spills, crumbs get in the sheets…a nightmare.

Freya, I think you summed it up nicely, and I’m right there with you. Breakfast in bed sounds nice and romantic, but in the end . . . not so much, for all the reasons you mention!

Just read your wedding recap. My best friend got married at the same chapel. That view is breath taking and I loved the small & quaint chapel.

I love breakfast in bed — but we only have it on the days I change our sheets — I hate CRUMBS in bed!

Have a safe drive home :)

I’m not a fan of breakfast in bed either. We don’t have a king size bed… but I LOVE it when we travel and our hotel has a nice one with fluffy pillows :)

Aw, I thought that was an enormous lychee at first, not an egg. Now I’m all disappointed. Boo. :P

I cannot stand breakfast in bed either! I’m more of an eating at the table kind of girl!!

When the Husband and I were able to sleep in a king sized bed on our honeymoon, we loved it! I’m not a “cuddler” when I sleep and absolutely hate being touched when I’m trying to fall asleep, so it was PERFECTTT!!!

We sleep just fine in our queen, but I agree, when we travel and sleep in a king, it’s kinda nice! ;)

I’m not a huge breakfast in bed kind of person either. I am a messy eater though so eating in bed usually means I have laundry to do at the end. LOL

Tony got up before me this morning. I slept 9 beautiful hours! Your breakfast looks tasty and I am with you, I don’t really like breakfast in bed either. I like getting up! Have a safe trip to Charlotte and enjoy your run!

King sized beds overwhelm me!
I stay in the exact same spot the whole night, so to me, they are a waste of space…
unless they were so big that I would not hear my husband’s snoring, then I might appreciate them!

I couldn’t even fit a king sized bed in my bedroom if I wanted to! A queen is big enough for my bf and me, but we definitely enjoy king sized mattresses on vaca, too.

I don’t like huge beds. I prefer to snuggle with my boy during the night, although everything hurts the morning after :D He just squeezes to tightly.
And breakfast in bed… well, from time to time, it’s a nice thing :)

seriously, I know of few things better than a grainy piece of bread with Cinnamon Vanilla Sunflower Butter and a mashed banana. Only one more thing makes it totally perfect. A sprinkling of CHIAS!!!
Love,

One of my all time favorite breakfasts is toast and a soft boiled egg on the side. It reminds me of when I lived in Germany last summer.. although I favor my toast with Nutella over Sunflower Butter. Have fun in Charlotte!

Mashed banana is exactly what I ate this morning too! Once I tried it mashed, I’ll never go back to slices again :).

Glad you slept well – we LOVE king-sized beds when traveling and Billy is adamant about buying one asap. Also, LOVE your KERF language, ex. “eggin” – reminds me of my sisters and our take on certain words. :)

I can’t stand breakfast in bed either! Always turns out messy for me, and my bed gets full of crumbs. Your toast looks so yummy :)

Must try smashed banana on toast with PB, that looks amazingly delicious! And thanks for reminding me that honeydew exists, I love it! But have completely forgotten to get any at the grocery store lately…

breakfast in bed is overrated. it’s the thought that counts though!
your wedding pix were gorgeous, too, by the way. they’re lucky to have such a great photographer!

Yeah, I’m not huge on breakfast in bed either..but my husband is kind of a nut about crumbs, so maybe it would be more fun if that wasn’t the case. I also HATE TWISTED SHEETS! LOL

So glad I’m not alone in my dislike for breakfast in bed! It actually skeeves me out. It feels so out of place and I can’t enjoy it at all! Coming from a breakfast buff like you, this makes me happy :)

OMG. Long-time reader, first-time commenter: I totally had nightmares about being illegally detained in a hospital too! I had a couple of them: in the first, they had hidden my shoes, so I couldn’t leave and was frantically searching for them. In the second, a woman was harassing me as I tried and tried to lock and unlock hospital room doors.

I will have to look and see what you had to eat last night – maybe there is some connection?! I made the sloppy joe’s from this month’s Clean Eating, but I veganized them by using soy crumble instead of bison. Hm….

I never eat in bed because my mom always used to tell me I’d attract bugs into my bed if I did. :P That was enough to scare me out of ever doing it!

42 Heidi - apples under my bed October 11, 2010 at 6:19 pm

Yum! Breakfast looks delicious. Love a side of hard-boiled egg :) I don’t mind breakfast in bed – sprawling out with newspapers. But I always get crumbs in my sheets, which irritate me when I get into bed later that night!

Mmm, eating toast with a fork makes it feel like a mock french toast. I think I will try this for breakfast this week!

I bring my own little coffee maker, coffee, cream & sugar when I travel. It’s so worth it!

When I was growing up, my family had a tradition on Mother’s day and Father’s day to make breakfast in bed but we had a nice little lap table that not only was a great way to carry the food, but also fit nicely over the lap when sitting on the bed. I do dislike crumbs in my bed. Speaking of crumbs, I need to clean up the granola that fell out of my backpack onto my bed earlier this evening :)

46 Sara @ myfancytuna.blogspot.com October 12, 2010 at 6:31 am

LOL I hate eating in bed, too! I get crumbs everywhere and then you can feel them when you go to sleep that night…ICK. Also, I love smashing a banana on toast – it’s like banana jam!

I hate breakfast in bed too! My husband and I couldn’t live without a king though. He’s 6’8” and hogs the bed. ;)
