Do you realize that we serve an amazing God? A God that, not only, cares about the big things in our life but the small things as well?

OK, so I am less than four weeks away from my due date and getting bigger everyday. So, I have all the sudden realized that, while it seems as though I have been pregnant for...well...my entire life!


  •  Ok, maybe not that long but seriously I have almost forgotten what it is like to NOT be pregnant! Anywho, I am realizing that this little man is coming soon and I need to prepare some things.


One of the biggest things I have been thinking about lately is food. My husband is a voracious eater! Truly, he could eat every hour on the hour it is insane!!

 SO I am thinking about meals after baby is here that will be easy to prepare and even easier to clean up after!

Enter freezer meals. And pinterest. Ahem. Yes, I am now addicted a member. And wow they have some neat ideas!

So anyway, that is something that I am planning on getting onto for sure but in the meantime-one thing that Jason and I already love is french toast. I have started making a bigger batches and freeze some then during the week we can just pull them out and pop them in the toaster. It is so easy and SO yummy!

So, I had wanted to make a big batch of french toast. The only problem is that I like to get organic eggs but they are like $4.59ish at the stores here and the cheaper ones we don't like to eat as much. But it was just a passing thought and I just didn't really think about it much after that.

So yesterday I entered a store to pick up a few things. Ahem. I got to the egg section and what did I find? ORGANIC EGGS for $0.50 A DOZEN!!!


I was absolutely shocked! So I bought eight dozen! The lady told me that they go on sale like that EVERY month because no one buys them! Uh-mazing! Not only that-but good bread that we love to eat (Arnolds) was buy one get one free!

So, I bought all my stuff and brought it all home just amazed at how God provides just when we need it!

So this morning I got all my ingredients together and started cooking:



For my french toast I combine:

  • Eggs 
  • Milk
  • Vanilla
  • Cinnamon
Then coat my bread in it and throw (not literally don't worry) it on the griddle. 

It is so easy and so yummy!

 Making yumminess. I love my griddle :) 


See that man in the background? That is my amazing prince of a husband :) And James is one of our youth boys :)
The "fruits" of my labor! 11 bags with eight pieces in each bag=88 pieces of french toast! For a little over $10 and it should last us a few months! :) I am so happy!


God is just absolutely amazing! What a blessing this will be in the upcoming months and you know what it wasn't something that was HUGE but the Lord still gave it to us :)
So, any amazing ways that God has blessed you with lately?
I would love to hear about them!

  2. So great! Since we don't have a microwave, we reheat many things in the toaster - frozen bread (already sliced), bagels (already sliced =), hamburger buns... leftover pancakes, waffles, french toast...

    I was looking at your pinterest page, and saw the laundry basket dresser idea. I was showing my mom, and we were looking at a bunch of them, and we are thinking what a great idea!!! We just might have to do something with that. =) You find such amazing ideas!

  3. Well, I don't want to go into detail much because it's kind of personal but I can say this much. I have always been afraid of a certain situation and I was avoiding it for the last years. I ignored it as hard as I could. But then, I suddenly found myself confronted with it and I had two choices: Ignore it and live with terrible guilt and fear and anger for the next months, years, whatever, or just face it and get it over with. I was so angry at God for putting me into that place at first, and somehow I wanted to prove him that I'm not going to be chased away by "scary" things (it isn't really a scary thing to most people). Well, I decided to prove myself, the people around me that no matter what you're facing, God never gives you things that you can't do. And I did it and what can I say - it wasn't as bad! You can't imagine this immense relief I felt. Why was I so scared for so long? I'm not angry anymore, I'm thankful that God gave me the chance to overcome it by myself, and not just make it go away somehow. I grew so much through this in every way and, well, I'm so thankful.

    All you got to do is, remember, God never lets you down, he doesn't make you do things you can't do, no matter how dark it seems, there's always a way through it, just stay on it and try to find that way.

  6. Oh I just remembered you're due in April! So, before things get serious, I wanted to make sure to wish you best of luck, a healthy last few days of pregnancy, a safe birth and a healthy baby! I'll be thinking of you for the next few weeks and pray for you and your baby! I hope you're having a good time even if it's sometimes exhausting at the end of the pregnancy. Cherish every moment! I'm so excited for you! Keep us updated!
