Tonight was awesome. Chris and I went to the OC Fair. It is something I have never liked because in my mind it has always been a dirty, trashy, everything is fried place. Two years ago Chris "surprised" me one date night by taking me to the fair. He had never been and I always begged him not to go because I hated it. We ended up having a pretty good time. All week I've been dying to go to see the hypnotist who is awesome so I dragged him with me tonight. We ended up having a great time and walked around for 4 hours. Trust me, we could have used 4 more hours. We shared a beef brisket sandwich, a blooming onion, sweet tea and a funnel cake. I am grossed out thinking about all the crap we ate but it was so much fun and so worth it. I am so ready for our southern vacation that is just around the corner! All the BBQ, country music and animals got me so excited. I guess after tonight I am a fan of the fair, but it's still ghetto!
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 Ice Coffee creamer of your choice Heavy 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! Tag me on Instagram at
