Holidays

6 Jan

I have been so busy with the holidays and then having car troubles…well my 2 months old Ford Edge had a what I thought was a low tire due to cold. It turned out to be a cracked rim and that cracked the tire. It took 4 days to get the new rim in. So that kept us from finishing our holidays. But everything happens for a reason. Now that everything is going back to normal I am ready to begin blogging again. Sometimes things become so hectic and I don’t have time to blog. But this year I am going to work on it. This was the first time our daughter actually opened presents and her face was priceless. This was also the 1st Christmas we spent as a Family since Aria was born as my Honey has been in Iraq, so we couldn’t have asked for a better one. I will leave you with some pictures of Christmas.

French Toast Strata

6 Sep

I made this for part of my honeys birthday breakfast. It was a huge hit. The recipe says you can use brioche or challah bread I used the challah as I couldn’t find the brioche where I live. I also swapped the raspberries for blueberries. I defiantly recommend you covering the dish half way through cooking time.
Next time I make this I’m going to apply the cream cheese mixture on in a thin layers on each piece of bread instead of placing it on as the recipe says. I made this the day before. Hope y’all enjoy this. If you make this tell me how y’all like it.

monograms around the home

30 Aug

I have addiction to monogramming. I LOVE IT!! Ill never stop, so theres no need for an intervention.

I bought the pot holder set  at Ross for $4 I love them the colors whee perfect for the house as they matched the rest of the decor. I had the monogramed at a local monogramming place.

The towel is part of a 3 pc. set from Ross $3/4 I cant remember. I only had one monogrammed for now. I sewed on ribbon to the sides so I could tie it to the oven. This towel is just a decorative piece not to be used.

The Wreathe all supplies I used to make it are from Hobby Lobby. Minus the wooden monogram that is from Personalized from me to you.  The medium size
