A Moment in my Day

Today is the ninth day of May with the Blog Every Day in May challenge.  Feel free to join in and if you catch this anytime through out the month feel free to just jump right in.   

Day 9, Thursday: A moment in your day (this can be just a photo or both a photo and words.

Today I had a friend over to catch up over some tea.  I surprised her by making a banana coffee cake to share.  I was excited to get to use my new silver cake server.  I had been eyeing one like it by +aspiringkennedy with her Four Sales and found one online.  Due to having moved so much and having relcoated to Europe, we have parted with much of our original belongings from when we got married. I honestly think we may have just one or two 'wedding presents' still around.  So I have decided I am going to start collecting more 'grown up' additions to our housewares like Silver and china.  We honestly have just enough plates and bowls for the four of us that we purchased at teh grocery store when we got to England.  It will be nice to eventually have a whole set dishes and serving items for fancy dinners and the holidays.  While the lone silver cake server may have clashed with my glass measuring cup (posing as my creamer) the banana coffee cake was delicious.  

Note to Self: Must get grown up coasters for teas so I'm not using my Dexter 'Blood Slide' Coasters for tea. ;)

Homemade Banana Coffee cake for tea with my friend today.
Getting ready  to sit down for a cuppa and some treats as I catch up with  my friend this afternoon.

  1. Ahh I wish I had a friend here to catch up over tea with... Sigh....

  2. That looks absolutely delicious! And the cake server is beautiful. :)

  3. we put all of our wedding gifts in storage when we moved since it was just four months after our wedding. i can't go back and have 'real' kitchen supplies and dinnerware! that cake server is gorgeous, funny how the small things can get us so excited : )

  4. I love the cake server! I also need to collect more "grown up" things for serving guests.... I parted with way too many belongings when I moved overseas. My husband was already here when we married so the military wouldn't ship any of my things. I moved with only two suitcases in tow and 95% of that was clothes. I literally brought none of my "possessions" with me. Just the bare necessities and at the time that was clothes and shoes! lol Now I wish I had a few more sentimental items :(

  5. When we moved to Sweden we paid for cargo shipping via ship and while it was expensive at the time I am so happy to have all of the stuff I do, which I am sure some would say is bad but I do not care. Also I would rather buy a dish than a pair of shoes so I am sure that has something to do with it!
