Survivor spoilers below!!!
I am coming off a major caffeine – champagne – finale buzz this afternoon! Hillary and Ellen were at my house by 8am to get started on our brunch menu. I successfully stayed away from the internet and wasn’t spoiled for the fantastic ending. Whew!
As a mostly decaf drinker, I had half a mug of French pressed Drift Away Coffee the company sent me. It was sooo delicious, but made me quite woozy! I can’t believe I used to have 2 cups of coffee at once – I am so sensitive to caffeine now.
We had a scrumptious egg, cheese, bread and sausage casserole that Ellen made.
Plus bacon cooked by Hillary – (this was not a light brunch!)
Freshly baked muffins from the bakery –
And fresh fruit – mango and oranges.
And of course we all wore our Survivor buffs!
So the finale!! During the first part of this season, the “Dirty 30,” I was all about the No Collars + Shirin. But as they were voted off one by one, there was a time when I really had no idea who to root for. Then when is alliance turned against him and he befriended Shirin, Mike became my favorite. We literally screamed our way through the challenges this morning as we watched him win reward and immunity. I felt he definitely played the best game, and apparently the jury did too. Great end to the season! I do feel a little bad for Carolyn because she had such a disappointing ending (along with not making it onto Second Chances) but oh well. I bet we’ll see her again.
Second Chances made the finale SO much more exciting, and the 5 minutes when they were all getting on the show was amazingly exciting!!!!! Most everyone I wanted to get on did, with the exception of Shane. And I would have liked to see Max back too. But for the most part my favorites are on, and I absolutely cannot wait for this fall!!!
Best. Show. Ever.
Last night we went over to the Struckmann’s house for an impromptu dinner. The weather was ideal for outdoor dining.
We made little burgers on cheddar garlic rolls with grilled veggies on the side.
What did you think of the finale?! And if you don’t watch Survivor, you gotta start.
