Rainbow French toast

Rainbow French toast

Hello my friends! I’ve missed you all! I’ve missed writing. I’m hoping to be back now full time on the blog. I just took a much needed break due to the circumstances we were all left to deal with. The boys should be done with school June 12 so that will give me some extra time to be creative! And hoping life can slowly get back to normal. I mean who is so needing some hair TLC and Nail TLC Lol! But Today I wanted to share a fun bright brunch, you can make to add some smiles to your friends and family!

I’ve been trying to make special brunch items for the boys, you know just to add some special touches to our day! I love French toast my mom would make us French toast a lot. I’m glad my boys like it! But I added a special twist to our French toast. First I ordered the rainbow bread from the little market, they offer fresh baked goods from homeboyindustries! They deliver too! You have to order at least $40 worth and be in the area for home delivery! Order before Wednesday’s at 10am and you get your fresh delivery by Friday of the same week! Let me tell you worth it! The bread was yummy! We even ordered a fudge brownie and that was delicious. I made a fun basket for my good friends babies first bday! You’ll see that cutie in the photo enjoying it! So here’s my recipe! Super easy and yummy!

  1. Rainbow bread( if you can’t get rainbow any thick good bread will do)
  2. Eggs
  3. half and half( or milk)
  4. vanilla extract
  5. Cinnamon 
  6. Butter        

    So get all your ingredients! Depending on how much you will make is how much egg you will use, so for me I used 3 eggs and mixed about 1/4 cup of half and half, 1 tsp of vanilla extract and a generous dash of cinnamon! Whip your eggs with your ingredients, in a skillet heat butter on medium heat. Dip bread slices in your egg whip on both sides make sure it’s pretty soaked. Place dipped bread in the warm skillet and cook on both sides. Once done add some butter and your favorite syrup and you have delicious French toast! 

    Enjoy! Till next post!

Staying positive

Staying positive

Hello my friends! I’ve missed writing on the blog! I decided to hold off on post until I felt compelled to write. And I felt like writing! I hope you all are hanging in there!No matter what your situation is, We are all feeling this.

Today I wanted to talk to the moms at home. Only because that’s my situation. This week is the 7th week of the kids being home from school and us moms having to take on yet another roll. I say that because we already have a full load. We keep the house clean, we cook for the family, we do laundry for the family, we have to do the crazy shopping right now, btw is a chore these days. And now we must make sure the kids are getting their education. I’m so so in Awe of what our teachers do for our kids. Being home having to make sure they are doing their work hasn’t been easy. I’m not about sugar coating this situation acting like I have it all together. Because truthfully I don’t. I’m not forcing more on my kids besides what they have to do. I’m not even trying to get them to do a full day of studies. Honestly I’m lucky my little one who’s in kindergarten last an hour. Thankfully I think his teacher realizes this and assigns the perfect amount. My high schooler I feel he should work on his is own. Besides me sounding like a broken record asking him did you log on yet?! I told him if he chooses not to log on he’s only hurting himself! I thankfully have a good kid and so far is doing what he needs to. Screen time yes I let it go on for way too long ,but to be honest all of us adults are probably on ours more too. I just make sure they are learning something descent on those iPads and lap tops!

And for me I sometimes get angry and say when do I have time! I find myself in a bad mood because I can’t get that workout in earlier because I have to help with school work or I can’t sit and watch a show on my own because the house is full! All the things I was enjoying when everyone was at school and work. But I really try to stop myself from getting upset and say they are all feeling it in their own way. My oldest misses his friends so much and going to school, my little one cried saying he misses kindergarten and playing in the classroom, the hubby feels he has to be working 24/7 he misses being able to shut down at 6! So they all are feeling it. I just tell myself stay positive and just enjoy them being home.

So stay strong, stay home and stay safe! Till next post with lots of prayers and hugs!

Crafts at home!

Crafts at home!

Hello friends! I missed you all so much! I really needed a break and honestly when all this corona virus started I felt so uninspired. I’m still not completely ready to be back, but writing in my blog makes me feel so much better. And right now besides helping the boys with school, mostly my little one. And cooking and just keeping the house in order with everyone home 24/7, I needed an outlet. My blog has always been that for me. Not sure being quarantined for the next 30 days will have me creating, But I’m going to try for my sanity! I’ll share as much as I can with not being able to take too many photos. You know I love to try all the new new! And right now I’m just not shopping as much! But I’m really going to use my crafty and creative side to get some fun blogs out!

My Birthday is this Monday and normally I have a fun birthday shoot with my girl, but I’ll save it for my 3 year bloggiversary in July! As for this birthday all I asked for was a no cooking, no washing dishes day! Like for real, who can relate to all the dish washing?! I’ll write next on the blog what kind of schedule I’ve made that is keeping me from not quitting,lol! Or throwing my kids out of the house! Joking, but not joking, stay tuned for next blog!

What I love about Disneyland

What I love about Disneyland

Hello friends!! This is the last post for the month of love! And I thought how fun to do what I love about Disneyland! First of all it’s already almost March like, wth! Spring is coming in strong and I’m excited for some spring fashion! I’ll be doing a spring post next week! Some fashion must! Fall and spring have always been my favorite! So I’m super pumped!

So let’s get started with my Disney love! First I want to talk about annual passes. We were pass holders before, when breaker was 2, but we hardly went. So we had taken some time away. We decided to get them again when Breaker turned 6, he’s so into Disney. So far we have loved having our passes. They are pricy, but if you plan to visit enough in a year they are so worth it! I recommend the deluxe passes. They are not as pricy as the others and they have good days to go. Not so many block out dates. The only thing is if you like summer days don’t get this one they are blocked almost all summer. Go with what I have the signature. The reason I have signature and not deluxe like my hubby and breaker is for the parking. Signature includes parking. We go 2-3 times a month and at $25 a day parking it made more sense. I’m also not blocked a lot. So if you don’t mind paying more go with that one. Totally worth it if you plan to go a lot.

Food ok, we are still exploring food! But some of my must haves are the clam chowder in bread bowl. They have this in New Orleans square and the pier at DCA. It’s a fav! I love the red cart in Main Street for a good old corn dog, so yummy! Jolly holiday has the best treats if you have a sweet tooth. And let’s not forget about the churros. You can’t go wrong. And by far my favorite treat is the beignets in New Orleans square too! If you need a drink head over to DCA for a yummy drink at lamplight lounge. We love following magic journeys on YouTube and Instagram for all the latest yummy foods at Disneyland!

Fashion you all know I love some cute clothes! And we all know most love the great photo opportunities at Disneyland! So we all need to look cute, but I mean comfort is key! I usually go with my most comfy jeans especially when I know I want photos. If it’s a lazy day going I opt for sweats or leggings. Hot days I go with my comfy jean shorts. I love to go on theme. Who doesn’t love to wear a Disney shirt to go along with the cute ears! My go to places are H&M and zara for my Disney needs! They always have the cutest tees and you can’t go wrong with some jeans and tee! For Breaker I usually get his shirts from H&M or kids gap. I always wear converse or my comfy adidas. So try to stick to a shoe you know is great for walking. Good thing sneakers are so on trend!

So much more but I’ll do a more foodie one soon with pictures! Because low key we go to eat!

till next post!

My sweet boy is 16

My sweet boy is 16

Hello friends Happy February! The month of love! Who all still goes out for Valentine’s Day? I haven’t in years but I think me and the hubby are going to this year, so cool it is on a Friday.

Today’s post since it’s the month of love, I thought how fitting is it to dedicate my first post to my first born. He is the reason my heart grew bigger.

My David, he just had his 16th birthday. Imagine 16 years as a mom, I remember the day I went into labor with him. He was my little big guy, a whole 6lbs 11oz but long, I knew he was going to be big, he had the biggest hands and his feet were too big for his newborn pajama. I had to always cut the bottoms. He was my gentle giant. And now he’s 16 a young man that has this beautiful heart. He’s so caring and loving with everyone. I know he has a bright future. But this year he will hopefully get his license and maybe get a summer job, lol! No but really He has his written text very soon. It’s crazy!

I’m so proud of him. And I can’t wait to see him grow more as a person. He has brought so much joy to my heart for 16 years. So Happy sweet 16 my baby.

Moms out there that might be worried about having a second baby because you feel you can’t love anyone as much as you do your first, don’t be scared. Your heart is capable of amazing things. You love them just as much and your heart grows fonder every year they grow. The heart is an amazing thing and gets bigger with the more people we allow in.

Till next post!

No rules to Goals

No rules to Goals

Hello my friends!! Ok so I’ve kept my theme of January devoted to the new year and goals. This is my last post for January so I wanted to end it on a simple note.

Do not spend your year beating yourself up on trying to get through all the goals. I honestly don’t think goals have to take over your life. Life is way too short for you to stress over a goal you made for yourself. Enjoy life that’s important. A simple goal doesn’t mean less than a big goal. Who’s to say your simple goal isn’t a big deal to you. Don’t let anyone make you feel like your goals are not big enough. 

Goals are great to have they keep you in line. But don’t feel discouraged because others are hitting their goals and you aren’t. You are on your own path, don’t worry what path others are on. You make your path on your own. So no rush and just remember to enjoy everyday. We are absolutely never promised the next.

So like I said before, no goal is too small, and don’t ever feel a goal is too big. You have the ability to make it happen. With that you have 336 days as of today to work on what you have to work on. Don’t follow someone else’s goals. Focus on you and what makes you happy.

My number one goal is family, spend more time with them, make more memories and just enjoy the time we have with them. And day 29 of that I’m on the right path. Let’s all cheer each other on. Till next post.

Starting 2020 right

Starting 2020 right

Hello my friends! Ok so I’m using January as a stepping stone into the new year! So why not share my steps with you! I don’t like to start off so crazy like giving myself all these rules and goals! Like for real it’s just torture to yourself! I like to start off with manageable goals! And once I start to see myself achieving these manageable goals, I add more! It’s less disappointing at the end.

So something I can already check off my list and let me tell you it’s the most important, is making our dr appointments and dental appointments. Health is the most important in my book! I made sure to schedule all appts so I know we are set and healthy! Some of us will put these off and let me tell you, if you have yearly goals that’s great! But nothing is more important than health. If you are not healthy, how are you going to accomplish anything? So make those appointments!

Dentist! Most of us hate them lol! Well not hate just scared of them. But oral care is just as important as physical. So get it over with and book those dental appointments! Believe me I have a huge phobia with the dentist but hell it feels good to get those choppers cleaned! So book your appointment!

Thats it! Getting those done for my family take a lot of stress off me in the beginning of the year! So we can proceed with our own individual goals and just be happy! Till next post!
