We're here!!!

Oh my gosh, what an adventure we are on! It has been such a long day and quite eventful! We landed in Los Cabos around 5:15pm (4:15 cali time) and decided that we were going to get a rental car. Yes, we have NO clue where we are going but we decided that it would be cheaper and easier than getting taxis everywhere. We rented from National and got a new 2008 Honda. Seriously, it looks like it's a 1993. I have to take a picture of it tomorrow and show y'all our ride! It's awesome! We decided that we were going to go to the grocery store to stock up on food. (breakfast and lunch items). It's really hard to know what is ok and what is not ok for us so I decided to go with the names that were familiar. (dole, doritios, oscar meyer) We got some not so familiar named things too. Praying that they're yummy! It was so exciting to see how cheap things are!! Our total came to $588.00 pesos but really it was only $45 in dollars! Whew! So- here is the adventure part. I was trying to scram at the grocery store because I knew it was going to get dark soon. We were trying so hard to dig up that spanish we learned years ago...I need to dig a little deeper! Once we FINALLY got checked out and being stalked by a guy we got in our race car, busted open the doritios because we are starving! and tried to remember what road and direction the car rental guy told us to take. It's dark by the way. So we're driving along like maniacs and I'm praying the whole time. Chris took a wrong turn and we ended up going down a road that seriously we couldn't see the end to. There was nothing in sight but a policia. I've had a run in with them before and it's not fun! We quickly made a fast u-turn (im praying really loud) and Chris is laughing at me. We finally got on a road that sounded right pointing to Cabo San Lucas. After about a 15 minute drive we found our resort. Jesus seriously directed us here because it's completely dark and not many lights. As soon as we stepped onto the resort we were at peace. It was safe and there were Americans who speak our language!! The only thing I wanted while we were driving was an american cd. Theres a cd player in our pimped out car but who has cds anymore? Ok, so our resort is out of this world!!! We are right on the beach. Our condo is absolutely gorgeous! GORGEOUS! We have a huge master suite and a little kitchen with a huge bathroom, another full on beautiful kitchen, a really big family room and dining room and another bathroom along with a really big porch that overlooks the ocean. We so wish we could share this with our family. We totally could have all fit in this house! I will be sure to take pictures tomorrow and show you what I'm talking about.
I am so thankful we have a kitchen full of food. We're starving so we're going to go make some dinner (after Chris is done smoking his cigar). Dad, he wishes you were here to be his buddy.
That's it for now. We're here, we're safe and so excited!
Until tomorrow...
PS. Sorry if there are a lot of misspellings. The spell check doesn't work here. Everything is in spanish!
We love you.

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…
