Ah. I can't believe Christmas is Friday! Where did the year go?! With miss Emerson it's been a year of firsts for her and us as parents. It's crazy how different the holidays are when you have a little one. Making lifelong memories and starting new family traditions seem to be the name of the game.

With Christmas just days away we've been busy prepping from wrapping gifts and decorating, to finishing our kitchen remodel or daily chores on overdrive like laundry and dishes. We're trying to get it done now so we can spend more time making memories.


Life is busy and as much as I enjoy shopping I'm also not a fan. Hence why we shop at Costco. We're able to stock up on basic staples. It's perfect during the holidays because we don't have to worry about running out of toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent, etc. You name it we probably buy it at Costco!

Our last trip was a big haul which included Tide Advanced Power [$21.99] and Cascade Action Pacs, Complete [$15.99].


Having a baby I feel like I'm always doing laundry! However, Tide Advanced Power gives me peace of mind. I know I can throw Emerson's clothes in the wash without any stain remover and they'll come out nice and clean. #winning

More time for cooking and making memories with my best gal pal.


Aside from getting our house holiday ready, this weekend I tested out a tasty breakfast I think you should make for Christmas morning, French Toast Casserole.


The French Toast Casserole is perfect for Christmas morning because you can prep it the night before then pop it it the oven in the morning. It's also 'light but right.' Not to mention a crowd pleaser. 


French Toast Casserole
Serves 6

Ingredients

1 can of refrigerated cinnamon rolls
1/4 cup Almond Milk [I prefer unsweetened, but if you want a sweeter casserole use vanilla]
2 eggs
1/2 stick of butter
1 tsp Almond extract
1/4 cup chopped nuts [pecans, walnuts or almonds]
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Melt butter and pour it into the bottom of a baking dish. The dish pictured is 7x10.

Separate cinnamon rolls and cut into four pieces. Add to the baking dish with melted butter [save frosting for later]

In medium sized mixing bowl, beat eggs until blended. Add almond milk, almond and cinnamon. Once eggs and milk mix are blended, pour over the cinnamon rolls. Sprinkle with nuts.

Bake for 25-30 minutes. Cool for 15 minutes. Once cooled, top with frosting and serve. Enjoy!


There you have it -- P&G products I can't live without from Costco and a quick and easy Christmas breakfast.

  1. Your french toast casserole dish looks to die for. We actually have a tradition of going out for breakfast Christmas morning, but maybe I could make it for New Years? :)

  5. What a genius simple breakfast idea. Looks so good! I agree it's not fun to shop for essentials but when you stock up and don't have to go as often (and save money too) it's totally winning. #client
