We are now back at our little cozy house after staying at mom and dads for 10 days while they were in Maui! We had a great time staying there and taking care of everything but there is no place like home! We've already gotten back to work on the house since we got home tonight. I did a little gardening and Chris is installing our new hall closet doors as I type. They look awesome. We have one thing left in the whole house that is original and that is the guest bath vanity. It's not even bad since I painted it black. I am working a couple days this week for my family that lives down the street from my parents. I love being a nanny and taking care of little ones. Can't even tell you how much happier I am. We are loving this time in our life.
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
