baby blue brunch

so...
we had a party...
fyi....
don't do a search on pinterest for
"baby shower for boy"
because there is no way to ever measure up to the amazing things people come up with and you will just feel like a failure...
my advice is keep it simple:)

but ohhh we had some fun!


we had an open house and served brunch...
in spite of the fact that we are living in 
"flu central"
and it's -6 degrees and we had a ton of snow over the holidays,
(it's basically the frozen tundra with a lot of coughing)
we had a great time...
here are some pictures taken by maddie... 






we served breakfast casserole
(recipe at the end of this post)

and french toast bites.
i would love to take the credit for these amazing treats because they were definitely the hit of the party.
my idea was to make them and serve them in little cups with maple syrup like on pinterest.
however,
that's just insane!!!!!
i ran out of time and instead went to macey's and got my favorite
french toast bagels and toasted them and put butter and powdered sugar on them and cut them into bite size pieces with a pizza cutter...
easy peasy...
i cheated,
 as per usual:)
and every last one of them was gone...


                             

we also had granola in snack cups


                           



cinnamon rolls


delicious fruit and cheese










no winter brunch is complete without
delicious homemade hot chocolate to warm us up...

thanks mom!


i served the hot chocolate with yummy
biscotti

~~~~~~~~~~~

here is the recipe for the yummy egg casserole we ate...
i also make this every christmas morning!
it's always a hit:)


it does tend to bubble over so i suggest putting a cookie sheet under the casserole dish.


next up?
BABY!!!!!

p.s.
i wanted to look pretty for my new grandson:)

i am extremely weird...
have a diet coke on me:)



bye...
more later...
