When I got home, I let the seduction of the laptop get at me, and soon I was clicking on a Pinterest link that was going to tell me all about how to set up a Mother's Day brunch. I have no intention of setting up a Mother's Day brunch, but in the hope of inspiring someone else, I chose some recipes that were really, really decadent to send to Emily. Think Pancake Dippers with crisp bacon in the middle and raspberry sourcream dip; think Deep chocolate cake with merlot icing; think banana chocolate wafer stacks. Then think of the fact that I'm still sticking to the "life changes" I had to make to lose 30 pounds, and you'll see that with flowy clothes, high winds and access to recipes, it's not easy to be grown-up.
