Cabo, day 5

Here we are on day 5 in Cabo! In a way it seems like its going by fast but then again, its hard to believe that it's only day 5. All this relaxation is wearing us out! We slept in this morning and headed to downtown Cabo around 10am. It's only about 15 min from our resort. We walked around a bit then took a water taxi to "Lovers Beach". Our boat driver gave us a tour of the famous arch and took us back to see the sea lions. We got way too close for comfort (again) but they seemed more scared of us than I was of them. They are the gooshiest things, too bad they aren't nice. After our little tour we were dropped off on the beach where we floated in the waves and the boys snorkeled. It was so peaceful and beautiful. After a couple hours on the beach we went back into town and ate at a fabulous restuarant! I'd really love to find out what kind of cheese they use around here because it is amazing. I could live off of bean and cheese burritos! We headed back to our resort after lunch for some swimming and sleeping in the shade. We ordered our daily frozen limonades, they are wonderful! Chris and I came back to the condo and got ready for our date night. We decided that we were going to go to a restaurant that several people had told us about last time we were here so we went. Mom and dad stayed at our resort and had their own date night. Our date night was not what we had in mind....that is all I will say. It was so frustrating but by the end of it we couldn't stop laughing and couldn't wait to get back to our resort. We found mom and dad on their date night and crashed their table. It's been a beautiful day, so glad to be here. I'm sure I am missing a ton of details but you get the point. We're happy, healthy and relaxed. That is all we could ask for right about now. Enjoy some pictures from today..

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…
