it's friday - hooray!
our family had a bad sleeping week
but hopefully the kidsies will remember how nice it is to sleep through the night soon
and get back to it
at least with the weekend coming up, us tired parents can split up baby-duty so it's a little easier to manage
plus, we each usually get a sleep-in day, while the other takes the girlies downstairs
so in celebration of friday, i thought i'd share some recent favorites around here:
- we've been enjoying (and occasionally even dancing to) this playlist lately:
- melty goat brie and pepper jelly sandwiches
(don't knock it till ya try it - it's soooooo good!)
- the bunny we spotted in the backyard yesterday morning...a HUGE hit with the girls
- lots of extra time spent with my sister this week
(including one day when she watched the kiddos and straightened my hair while i got some work done...yes, i am blessed)
- discovering a new coffee shop in town with the most AMAZING drinks
- working through more pictures from my newborn session last weekend...so many favorites from this session!
- my wonderful husband, who went to the grocery store at 9:30 last night so that i could stay home and work out then reward myself with the watermelon he brought home for me
- my instagram friends, even the ones i've never met...it may be superficial, but it's really nice to flip through pretty pictures, read about others' ups and downs, be inspired, encourage and be encouraged
- introducing the girlies to french toast...easy enough to whip up on a weekday, "fancy" enough to get the girls excited for breakfast. cut it into strips and it makes a great finger food!
easiest french toast
2 slices whole grain bread
a couple dashes cinnamon
a squirt (1 tsp?) agave nectar
a smidge coconut oil (to grease pan)
- heat coconut oil in pan on medium / medium high heat
- beat egg and add cinnamon and agave nectar
(these can also be added as toppings at the end, once the french toast is done - i just decided to throw them in the batter so they'd cook on and make the meal a little less messy)
- dip both sides of your first bread slice into egg batter
- place bread on frying pan. once first side cooks up, flip it and cook the other side. this doesn't take long, but it depends on how much egg your bread soaked up.
- remove from pan and repeat with next slice
- cut french toast into strips and serve with fruit and yogurt for dipping (optional, but a big hit with the littles)
and that's a wrap - happy weekend, everybody!
