Another Broken Egg Cafe

Today at church we had a baby dedication with a reception to meet the families/babies afterward. Since Daniel and I are still new, we opted to skip the reception and grab brunch on the way home.

A few weeks ago, we had seen Another Broken Egg Cafe and wanted to try it out but there always seemed to be a ridiculously long wait. Hoping we had beat the rush by skipping class, we went to the restaurant.

It started out good. We were told it would be a 15 minute wait to sit outside – the weather today was amazing, so we definitely wanted to take advantage of the sunshine. Besides that, the interior of the restaurant was really crowded.

That 15 minutes quickly turned into 30 and then 45. It was one of those situations that you debate leaving, but you know that as soon as you leave your table will come up. So we waited. And got hungrier and hungrier. Daniel is not a happy camper when he is hungry, so not a good combination.

We had already decided what we were eating {during the ridiculously long wait}. So we ordered as soon as the server came by. Several other tables were seated shortly after us and the server took their drink orders before going to get our drinks/place our order. I get that, but it was frustrating that everyone else had waited only half the time we had. I also get that {to some degree} it is luck of the draw and we just happened to arrive at one of those in-between times where we ended up waiting longer.

I ordered French Toast with a side of eggs and bacon. Daniel had the Belgium Waffle with eggs and bacon. The eggs were amazing – they must have been cooked in butter. The bacon was thick cut and smoky – very yummy. The French Toast was nothing to write home about. It was good, but I have made better at home and been served better at other restaurants.

Do the eggs and bacon make up for the long wait, the so so service and ok main dish? I don't know. I would give this restaurant a 3/5 and would definitely avoid it on a Sunday morning.

I don't think that Daniel and I have discovered our new favorite breakfast joint...

  1. I'm telling you, give this place another shot. I admit, the wait time can get yucky at times, and others, you can walk right in. We go there at least once a month and are never disappointed once we sit down.

  2. I admit the eggs and bacon were to die for. I would definitely venture back if I could get in without a wait time. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

Baby Update: 32 Weeks, What's It Like to Have Polyhydramnios

I have had some questions about how I am feeling so I thought I would share what it has been like for me to experience Polyhydramnios with this pregnancy. If you have missed my previous posts, I have too much amniotic fluid in my uterus which makes my belly really big and it also causes early contractions (and possibly labor) because my body thinks it is further along than it is. For me it meant a hospital stay at almost-30 weeks to stop contractions.

Yesterday I had my follow up with the high-risk OB. Their ultrasound measurements showed the fluid is currently 21cm (which is below the risk). The measurements are a bit of an art project with different people getting different numbers (last week I was still measuring 25cm). The doctor I saw said they will continue to measure and assess me on a weekly basis for now. According to him, once I make it to 34 weeks, they would not try to prevent birth if I went into labor. He also mentioned wanting to induce me at 38 weeks. We shall see... my…

Weekend Project: Sign Art

UPDATE 01/07/16
This project is by far my most viewed post thanks to Pinterest and also this blog post from Make Magazine in 2014. If you are interested in purchasing a PDF of the words from me, you may do so for $20. Contact me at cheree dot moore at gmail dot com to make the purchase. If you make your own sign, I would love to hear about and see your results!


For some time, I have been intrigued by the idea of transferring printed art to wood. Specifically the transfer of words (or typography). Sign art is all over the internet – be it blogs I follow or Pinterest – and I have had an itch to try my hand at it. 


Daniel and I had some scrap wood from pallets from our move to Alabama that was in good shape and I thought that this wood gave me the perfect opportunity to create a (cheap) sign for our living room.


It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to go on the sign and then it took even longer to research how I would do the transfer. Actually doing the project took even longer sin…

It's the Final Countdown

Three long years ago, we learned that Daniel was going to be relocated from working in Hollywood, Alabama to two hours north in Spring City, Tennessee. We knew it was coming, but it still turned our world upside down. We spent eight months living out of suitcases, in and out of hotels and vacation homes during the week, until finally settling into our current home on Signal Mountain.
We both felt strongly that we made the right choice in regard to the location of our new home, but we knew it would be a difficult journey – Daniel's new position promised long hours, with a 70-minute commute each way. We were told the job would last about a year, so we hoped and prayed for the best.
To say it's been a hard experience would be an understatement. Jack went through a phase where he didn't believe that Daniel lived at our house. Which was kind of true. For months on end, Daniel worked 6-7 days a week, and sometimes weeks at a time without a day off. The hours were lo…
