History was definitely made last night as America elected our first ever black President. It's exciting to see how far our country has come. Chris and I along with 95% of our family were devastated that Obama won the presidency. It literally made me sick. I think I am most fearful of the fact that half of America has put their hope in one man. They look to Obama as their hero, one who is going to "change the world". They'll all learn soon enough that putting their hope in man alone is only going to lead to disappointment. I am not happy at all with our new President but I'm going to put that behind and move on. He is our new leader and I will respect him. I'm just thankful that God is in control and has a plan through all of this. At the end of the day it is Him we are accountable to. My prayer is for peace and protection over this great land. God bless America.
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
