Blueberry French Toast Casserole-Great for Christmas Morning

Day 21-Blueberry French Toast Casserole
A girlfriend of mine turned me on to this and I have made it a many times (baby showers, for the day after Thanksgiving, etc. )  It is always a hit.  It's perfect for Christmas morning when you don't want to cook.  You make it the day before and then just heat up in the morning.  It is super rich but very yummy. I got the exact recipe off of

Day 22...Fresh Wreaths and Garland...

Friday, December 3, 2010

I love the smell of Christmas trees. It just makes it seem like the holidays. We have not gotten our tree yet...we are waiting till this weekend but I have ordered some fresh garland to put around the inside of my door.  I got mine from but they're are lots of other great places too.  This is a great way to get that Christmas smell if you do a fake tree.
This is what I ordered from

Introducing Cleaning Claire's Closet

Sunday, November 28, 2010

We have a new sister blog!  It's called Cleaning Claire's Closet.  It has been in the works/idea stages for over a year and I am just now getting it up and moving :) but it's here and CCC is just in time for the holidays.

CCC concept is to sell new or gently used clothing, accessories, decor and more,  At Awesome Prices. We will be adding more stuff gradually.  What you see is what you get. Items are mostly 1 or 2 peices.  Some are from Lily's Laundry that just never sold and others are, items that have been gently worn (we will never post a piece that we wouldn't put our own kids in i.e. All items are stain free/smoke free.)

Over the next couple of weeks we will be getting all of the kinks out ;)
We will be adding Give A Ways, adding CCC to our Blog Hop and adding more inventory.

So go check it out at and let us know what you think!
