Oh Baby Andrews

Let me start off by saying that all the prayers worked!!!! The little one had the legs open during the whole ultrasound! I was so thrilled! I was sure we were going to walk out of that place knowing we are having a baby boy or a baby girl! We all stared at the screen trying to put the parts together and figure out what we were looking at. 98% of the time when we had "the shot" there was nothing to see. We all said girl and the tech even said girl. The at the end she said ok "it looks like you're having a boy!" The room went quiet! Not that we weren't excited, we were all shocked. I was bummed because none of us are convinced either way. Trust me we are going to be thrilled either way, we just want to be sure before all the shopping, planning and registering begins! I must admit that in a way the suspense of this is kind of fun. I know that the Lord is teaching me something through this. He knows that I'm a planner and for some reason I'm not supposed to be planning yet! I don't know what it is, but this morning was great. It was so fun to have our family there with us. In a way not knowing is nice because it just means we get more ultrasounds, I already have a book going! In case you are wondering we are going back next friday to try again. It's our free one so maybe that will be the day! We'll see! Baby Andrews was moving all around today...showing off and doing summer saults! So cute!! We got another dvd, I think this child has more time on tape and more pictures than I have when I was a baby! Thanks for praying, at least it looks like we have a healthy baby and thats all we can ask for. We're so thankful. Maybe we'll have an update next week! :)

Homemade Pop Tarts

To be honest, I’m not a fan of the boxed pop tarts but homemade ones make me weak in the knees. Our local coffee shops here in Tennessee sell them and they’re my guilty pleasure.  I decided to take a quiet Tuesday morning and make some with my sweet boy. 
Here’s what I did..

The best iced coffee, ever.

When Chris and I went to Mexico this past winter we quickly become addicted to their  blended espressos. I found myself craving them when we got home so I played around with a couple of instant espressos and ended up making the best iced coffee, ever. 


What you’ll need.  Medaglia D’oro instant espresso Water IceCoffee creamer of your choiceHeavy cream + caramel Trust me on the instant espresso. I tried them all. This is the best. I get it at Kroger. I’ve also heard Walmart carries it as well as trusty amazon. 
Step one.  Get your ingredients out. 

I fill my glass up halfway with water and pour a capful of instant espresso in. 

Mix it real good. 

Time to cool it down. 

Now comes the sweet part. 



This next step is money.  Lordy. 

If you’re feeling really naughty you can add caramel sauce.  Do it. 

If you’ve been wanting the recipe for the BEST homemade caramel ever then you’re in luck.  This is the recipe from my mother in law.  It is life changing. 


Ta-Da!

A healthier me.

Remember my Trust your gut  post?I feel like a whole new girl since I wrote that a month ago.  So many things have been confirmed and I feel like my happy healthy self again. 
All because of two things; 1. The gallbladder cleanse that I posted about.  Literally saved my gallbladder and my sanity.  No more stomach pain! And I can drink wine and margaritas without pain again! 🙌🏼
2. I found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten. It's still a mystery to me as to how I developed this but all I know is that when I do have gluten my joints hurt, I get awful headaches and an upset stomach along with bloating. 
Back to my first post about this... I took a "before picture" thinking I was going to 5-10 pounds and then post my "after" picture. 😂😂😂
Truth is, there are still plenty of calories in gluten free food. The other truth is I'm 80-20 gluten free. I still enjoy a few non-gluten free treats here and there (and then pay for it later). 
I love food. I reward myself wit…
