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!

Homemade Pop Tarts

To be honest, I’m not a fan of the boxed pop tarts but homemade ones make me weak in the knees. Our local coffee shops here in Tennessee sell them and they’re my guilty pleasure.  I decided to take a quiet Tuesday morning and make some with my sweet boy. 
Here’s what I did..

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 IceCoffee creamer of your choiceHeavy 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.

A healthier me.

Remember my Trust your gut  post?I feel like a whole new girl since I wrote that a month ago.  So many things have been confirmed and I feel like my happy healthy self again. 
All because of two things; 1. The gallbladder cleanse that I posted about.  Literally saved my gallbladder and my sanity.  No more stomach pain! And I can drink wine and margaritas without pain again! 🙌🏼
2. I found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten. It's still a mystery to me as to how I developed this but all I know is that when I do have gluten my joints hurt, I get awful headaches and an upset stomach along with bloating. 
Back to my first post about this... I took a "before picture" thinking I was going to 5-10 pounds and then post my "after" picture. 😂😂😂
Truth is, there are still plenty of calories in gluten free food. The other truth is I'm 80-20 gluten free. I still enjoy a few non-gluten free treats here and there (and then pay for it later). 
I love food. I reward myself wit…
