Washington day 4

Monday with grandpa and grandma was very educational. We drove and drove some more all around town. Saw a lot of beautiful places and ate lots more good food. We slept in and then took them out to breakfast, it was one of their favorite places and we agreed. It was called the "Oak Table" and I'm not even going to tell you what I ate. All I can say was I blew grams and gp away! We drove around Sequim and then went to see their new RV which is awesome. Then we went onto Port Townsend which is this cute little quaint town on the water. We went to a little place called "Nifty Fifties" for lunch and did a little shopping. They took us to a little lavender farm. Before I go any further...lavender is HUGE up here in Sequim! They make lavender everything! Lavender coffee drinks, lavender ice cream, lavender bread, cookies, chocolates...you name it...yes, we have tried it. I'm not going to lie, I am not a fan of lavender in my food except....for these little lavender crisp cookies that Grammy got us. Mmmm delicious! We have a couple packs :) Last night we took them to this little Italian place for dinner and had just a wonderful time. They told story after story about my sweet husband and we laughed so hard that our stomach's hurt. I have learned so much about my man and even more about my new grandparents. They have been special to me since the day I met them but I have fallen even more in love with them. One thing I learned was that they like to party! We stayed up so late every night playing games, talking, laughing, crying, playing the piano and organ with grandma. I wish I could have captured every moment on film. It's been fun Washington.


beautiful.

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!  Here’s what I did.. HOMEMADE POP TARTS YIELD: 9 servings PREP: 1 hour COOK: 25 minutes TOTAL: 1 hour 25 minutes These are simple and SO delicious! A flaky, buttery pastry with strawberry and brown sugar cinnamon fillings, and they’re frosted, of course!

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
