I'm deaf

So, last night was the Jonas Brothers concert. Haven't heard of them? That's ok, I hardly knew who they were...they are apparently the new hott boy band and they're brothers. My sister is a huge fan and so are all her friends. My parents neighbors gave us tickets to their suite (they are soo good to us!) and we surprised the girls by taking them to the concert last night for my sister's birthday. It was seriously the cutest/craziest thing ever. It took me back to my N'sync days when I adored the boys and would stand in line for hours for their tickets. These girls screamed the whole night...from 6pm-10:15pm, screaming. After the concert was over we somehow were able to get down on the floor to some seats that were awesome. 16th row... The Jonas Brothers were filming a movie in 3D and we were part of it, so they say... the best part for me was seeing Taylor Swift. She's the cutest little teenage country star and she sat behind us in VIP. I wish I could have recorded last night, it was so much fun to be there with the girls and watch them go crazy. I can't lie, I am now a fan. I still don't know the words to their songs but they are awesome entertainers and...they are Christians! They all even wear purity rings on their ring finger. Pretty awesome for popular teenage guys to stand up for something that the world puts down. Ohh good times and many more to come..

Not sure...

Don't mind me..

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.

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  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

Family Room DIY makeover

Remember that one time my husband bought a tv wall mount and then I decided we needed a new tv stand? And then it made me realize our dark furniture would look way better if I lightened it up? And then it was time to get rid of the old dark throw pillows and dark rug? And then all of a sudden that fireplace looked so out of place. So we gutted it.  All because we put the tv on the wall!  Here’s a little walk down our DIY family room makeover.  Before .  I started with this old corner cabinet that i got for free years ago and painted chocolate brown.  I dusted her off and went to town with chalk paint.  Then I got rid of the old dark rug and started changing out our throw pillows.  Then it was onto the fireplace.  Before   Chris took out part of the wood floor to extend the floor of the tiny fireplace.  We also cleaned out the fireplace and sprayed it with cream paint that can withstand 1,200 degree temperatures.  And then we sucked out the old volcano rock and put in this fire glass fr
