1 down, 1 to go!

Colby finished the tiling our guest bath when we got home from Indiana. It looks amazing! Now when we get back from Vegas he gets to do the master bath! :)

This happened last night!

We are tiling our bathrooms while Colby is on Christmas break! He is so talented!
We had the best experience we have ever had at home depot, usually they are not that helpful but they were last night! We were able to get everything we need for both bathrooms for a lot less than I was expecting! Thanks Colby for always making our home look Grand!!!

Pure Deliciousness!

I tried a new recipe for the Howard Thanksgiving Brunch (this should be a new tradition guys, breakfast is the best!) and it was a hit!

So here is the recipe: (recipe and picture out of Southern Living Magazine, Nov 2009 ed.)

Blackberry Overnight French Toast

Hands-on time: 21 min.; Total time: 8 hr., 51 min.
Yield: Makes 8 to 10 servings

1 cup blackberry jam
1 (12-oz.) French bread loaf, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
1 (8-oz.) package 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, cut into 1-inch cubes
4 large eggs
2 cups half-and-half
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
Toppings: maple syrup, whipped cream

1. Cook jam in a small saucepan over medium heat 1 to 2 minutes or until melted and smooth, stirring once.
2. Place half of bread cubes in bottom of a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish. Top with cream cheese cubes, and drizzle with melted jam. Top with remaining bread cubes.
3. Whisk together eggs and next 3 ingredients. Pour over bread mixture. Sprinkle with brown sugar. Cover tightly, and chill 8 to 24 hours.
4. Preheat oven to 325°. Bake, covered, 20 minutes. Uncover and bake 10 to 15 minutes or until bread is golden brown and mixture is set. Serve with desired toppings.
