SO good.

I have been doing really good with not having any crazy cravings. I really haven't had any....until this past week. During my first trimester all I could eat was waffles and bread and since then I've had normal eating habits. Monday night all I could think about was pizza. Stuffed crust pizza from Pizza Hut. I would have done anything to have some but I restrained. I held back until Wednesday night. When the delivery guy showed up at our door it was like my heart was full again. It definitely was what I needed. Last night my parents came up and left around 9:15pm. They went to Yogurtland after our house and I threw out the idea of going to Sonic to Chris for a late night snack and to my surprise he was all for it. We had never been to one in California before, only in Tennessee. Every time we go to Tennessee I make the family take me there for a cheeseburger and slushy. [side note: if you've never had a Sonic cheeseburger and fresh fruit slushy you are missing out big time.] So, at 9:30pm last night I find sonic online and get the address to the closest one which happens to be in Fullerton. It wasn't a bad drive at all. 9 miles and 10 minutes and we were there! We pulled into yes, the LAST spot and ordered. It was the happening place to be at 10pm. Ohhh my heart was so happy last night. We sat in the car and ate our delicious cheeseburgers and drank the refreshing slushy looking at each other and giggling the whole time. It was so unlike us to go out past 9, let alone to a fast food place. We're seriously like old people and love to stay home and eat. Needless to say, we will be making MANY more trips back to Sonic. I called my mom up while we were devouring our food and all I heard on the other end was "hahahahahaha, are you serious? Randy, guess what? They are actually at Sonic and eating cheeseburgers!" Hey, this pregnant woman is serious about her food and you need to eat you gotta do what you gotta do. Maybe Sonic is so good to us because I associate it with Tennessee and y'all know that's where my heart is. Chris thought I would for sure be the type to have the most outrageous and odd cravings and make him run out at midnight to fulfill my craving. I guess the story isn't over yet. We have a few weeks to go! :) Anyway....to make a long and stupid story short before I bore you even more, my cravings were satisfied this week. My heart is happy, Kate is growing and so is my butt..... We'll get to that topic another day.

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..

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…

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!
