After breakfast, we visited Paris… in the form of my sister’s sorority’s Parisian mother/daughter brunch.
When we arrived, we were greeted by her smiling sorority sisters who showed us to a yummy buffet of tasty sandwiches, desserts, fruit and more.
I went back for fifths (yes, fifths) of the seven layer bar dessert squares. I flippin’ love those things!
After the brunch, we changed into casual clothes and headed to Do Art, an art studio nearby to paint some pottery.
I selected a chips and dip platter, while my mom and sister opted to paint mugs.
My sister will pick up our goodies in a week. Apparently when the pottery gets fired up, the colors will really pop! I can’t wait to see the final product.
Once our pottery painting was complete, we hit the road for Orlando to pick up Ryan for a dinner at Park Plaza Gardens in Winter Park.
We decided to try Park Plaza Gardens, a rather expensive restaurant usually, because they are currently offering a menu featuring items from their 1980s menu at the original 1980s prices. Score!
Before ordering, our waiter brought us a basket of bread that we devoured.
Since the prices were amazing, my mom, sister and I ordered lobster while Ryan opted for the filet mignon.
We also shared a la carte sides of onion soup, asparagus and sweet potatoes.
The Dessert Lady
Dinner was delicious and we were very tempted to order dessert at Park Plaza Gardens, but we decided to hop in the car and head downtown to pay a visit to The Dessert Lady instead.
When we got there we were overwhelmed with so many decadent choices on the menu. When we spotted the sampler option our eyes lit up and we knew we had a winner.
We decided to enjoy one slice of carrot cake, bourbon pecan pie, Neapolitan cake and peanut butter pie and split them between the four of us.
We all agreed that the pecan pie (served with cinnamon ice cream) and the peanut butter pie were the stand outs.
Today definitely ended on a sweet note! 🙂
Since today was filled with girly fun, we’re letting Ryan control the remote and are hanging out watching the NBA playoffs before heading to bed in a bit.
See ya in the mornin’!
