Day 2 in Cabo

We woke up to a perfect day. It was so exciting as we opened up our big plantation shutters to see what it looked like outside. Nothing but sunshine and gorgeous tropicalness. The roar of the ocean is nothing like we have ever seen or heard. The waves are huge and the water is crystal clear. We had breakfast on the patio and then headed back to the store to grab a couple more items. It was much more comfortable today since we could actually see where we were going and knew where everything in the store was that we needed. By the time we came back it was time for lunch and then we hit the beach! We're on a white sand beach that is just beautiful. We laid out for a while, went for a swim in the pool and then walked about a mile down the beach. I could sit in the ocean for hours. It's the perfect temperature and I can see everything around me so I know when a fish is coming! We went back by the pool and made lots of friends. We have about 8 new friends. 4 of them are from New York and are itallian, funniest people we've ever met. They were buying us drinks all afternoon at the swim up bar. Funky Monkey was the drink of the day. I felt like a funky monkey by the time we got out of the pool! Good times! We also met another young couple who we really like. What's funny is they both work for Enterprise! How do we always seem to find those kind of people?! They are 5 doors down from us so after we all had our afternoon naps and snacks they came over and we walked down the beach (a long walk!) to go to dinner. We went to a place called Zippers. Right on the beach, lots of fun and great fish tacos! We walked all the way back and decided we still wanted to hang out so they came back to our condo and had drinks and watched football. We are completely beat now, we're both a little sun burned and still trying to recover from yesterday. Can't wait until tomorrow! We're going to spend the afternoon with John and Megan at Cabo's main beach! Check out some pictures from the day. I had to limit them for the blog, we took tons!

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

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

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!
