Cinnamon Raisin French Toast & A Friday Five

Today I’ve got a whirlwind of fun for y’all. All the details from our week as well as a delicious cinnamon raisin French toast recipe that you won’t be able to resist!


This little lady is celebrating her 6 month birthday today. Half a year y’all! Didn’t I just give birth? Apparently not, that was 6 months ago. Today we have her 6 month appointment and I’m excited to hear her stats. She’s definitely a healthy little girl! I’m proud to say that in 6 months we exclusively breastfed (breastmilk in a bottle when I work) and she never got sick. I’ll share her full 6 month update on Monday!



This puppy loves her baby and this baby loves her puppy. Maggie isn’t always that gentle around people, so we were nervous about how she would handle Chloe. It is so sweet how gentle and kind she is! She licks her face a little more often then I’d like, but she’s just being momma pup and getting the drool off her face. Now that Chloe is reaching and grabbing, Maggie doesn’t even flinch when Chlo gets a fist full of her fur. It’s just the best. I can’t wait to watch these two as she grows.
{Don’t worry, Moose is still around, he’s just less interested in Chloe these days! Plus he’s hard to take pictures of unless he’s outside.}



I can’t stop laughing. Thank you Snapchat for giving me this filter to take way too many ridiculous pictures of my daughter. Enough said.



We survived Daddy’s first trip away from us! That’s right, JP has been gone since Monday afternoon and didn’t get back until LATE last night. We were already asleep in bed. I had been dreading this trip for weeks because I like having him here and I wasn’t sure how I’d do without him. We managed, but not without lots of help from Auntie Annie, Leah, my mom, Matt and Emily! I appreciate y’all more than you know!
Yesterday, Emily, Chlo and I had a relaxing girls day. Since it was so beautiful, we took Chloe to Pecan Park near my parents’ house. She had a few firsts on her last day as a 5 month old…she went in the swing and down the slide for the first time! You go girl. It’s safe to say she loved it.


Recipe time! This time, I chose a breakfast recipe. A twist on a classic that didn’t disappoint at all! Last week, I made breakfast for dinner. I’ve made a few Trader Joe’s runs lately and decided to pull something together with a lot of the ingredients I bought there.

Cinnamon Raisin French Toast


4 slices of Cinnamon Raisin bread
{The bread at TJ’s is thick and amazing}
2 large eggs
1/2 tsp Vanilla
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
Splash of Almond Milk
Coconut Oil Spray {Sub: Preferred cooking spray}
Powdered Sugar
Maple Syrup


Heat a skillet with cooking spray on medium heat.
Mix together the egg, vanilla, cinnamon and milk with a whisk until combined.
Dip the bread into the mixture. Let it sit for a moment to let it soak in. Flip and coat other side.
Place dipped bread in skillet and cook for about 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Flip and cook other side.
Serve with your choice of toppings. I love a little butter and powdered sugar!
Making French toast with a different type of bread is delicious and I HIGHLY recommend it. It’s even better when you eat it for dinner!


Have a great weekend y’all!
