Trusting in Him!

Chris and I have been discouraged with a lot of things in our life and we're to the point now where we are just open, open to whatever God has planned for us. Never before have we really been open to "big changes" but we are getting there. I guess you can never say "never" because you never know what God has in store for you and your life. We are learning that now. Our prayer is that God will use us where we are at and take us to places we never thought possible. With that being said, we are open and have applied for a job in Nashville, Tennessee. I really thought that Chris would NEVER be open to moving there but he was all for it, only because we trust that if God leads us there and opens the door then we know that is where we are supposed to be. If not, we will stay here and be content. I know this is going to be a surprise a few of our family members because this is brand new and we haven't really told anyone but we are trusting in the Lord and are being open and obedient to His plan for our life. Please be praying for us, for our hearts to be open, to be obedient and to trust Him 100%. It's a leap of Faith and maybe God placed this before us to test our Faith and to see how much we trust Him or maybe this is Him leading us to a brand new place. We don't know. 50% of me has jumped on board and is ready to move to Tennessee and start a new life out there and the other half of me is here in Southern California. Our home is here, our family, our loved ones, our memories, everything! Lord, please lead us where you want us.

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!

Goodie Girl Cookie Pop Tarts

Summer is in full swing and Kate and I have a super fun, easy and delicious breakfast or even dessert idea for you to make!  First things first, go find some Goodie Girl Birthday Cake and Magical Animal cookies. They’re gluten free and to die for.  You can make this recipe gluten free by replacing the All Purpose Flour with Gluten Free Flour. Or if you want to skip the homemade dough all together you can use pie crust in the refrigerated section at the grocery store!
