Happy Anniversary!

Today, my Husband and I are celebrating our 2nd wedding anniversary! We have had a fabulous time celebrating....

As you know, we went to Mackinac Island, Michigan. It was opening weekend on the island so we got an awesome deal on a BEAUTIFUL hotel. Unfortunately, it was cold and rainy the first day. The second day was atleast sunny though. Here are some photos so ya'll can see how beautiful everything was.

This morning, I woke up at 5:45 and made an AWESOME breakfast for Louis. Oven Baked Blueberry French Toast!!

A little bit of powdered sugar + syrup + fresh squeezed orange juice = DELICIOUSNESS!

I thought I'd pass along the recipe incase you want to make it for youself. 

Oven Baked Blueberry French Toast
- 2 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, at room temperature
- 1/2 c granulated sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/2 c milk
- 10 slices french bread, 3/4 inch thick (preferably homemade or fresh store bought)
- 2 c fresh blueberries
- Maple syrup
- Confectioners sugar, for serving 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a 9 by 13 inch baking dish.

Beat the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon in a large bowl, with a stand mixer on medium speed, until well blended.

Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add the milk, and mix well.

Arrange the bread in the prepared baking dish, and spread the blueberries on top of the bread. Pour the cream cheese mixture over the bread. Let stand for at least 15 minutes before baking (or cover the pan, and place it in the refrigerator overnight). Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until golden brown.

Serve with maple syrup and confectioners sugar.

Hope evetyone has a wonderful day! :)
