Weekend Review

I'm so thankful for Saturday mornings that are unplanned. Of course I had my huge to-do list, but it was MY to-do list and I could finish it when and how I wanted (and if I didn't, the only person who would be disappointed was me). So, I chose to be lazy and make some yummy french toast that I had wanted to make every since I read about it on Fresh Mommy's blog. She posted a recipe not long ago using egg nog to make her french toast. A big THANK YOU to Tabitha, because it totally made my Saturday morning! It was super yummy!! I'll definitely be making it again. (Notice the mug...there was a little egg nog for the recipe and a little egg nog for me☺ Kinda like when you're cooking with wine☺)




FreshMommy's Egg Nog French Toast
1 egg, slightly beaten
1C eggnog
1tsp cinnamon
1/2tsp sugar
1/2tsp nutmeg
1/4tsp cloves

Saturday evening, a whole mini van full of us went to see the Christmas Kingdom and Garden of Lights in a town about 15 minutes away. The Christmas Kingdom is located at a place called The Castle, where they host a Renaissance Festival every year (which is really fun). During Christmas they turn the whole place into the Christmas Kingdom and have every kind of inflatable you can think of...it's crazy!

There are penguins...by the hundreds.

Polar bears and igloos
Snoopys in airplanes
Grinches in chimneys
and reindeer...lots and lots of reindeer
and this little guy...oh, wait he was with me☺
Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!

(Oh, and my tree is up, just in case you were wondering...I'll post pics tomorrow☺)

I made french toast on Sunday morning. One of my favorite things...

Oh...and from one addict to another -- I think Starbucks should give out frequent buyer cards. Like Delta or Airtran.
