yuck.barf.gross.blah.sick.help

Oh my. I can't even begin to describe the way I have been feeling because I might lose it (again). I have been nauseous on and off for about two weeks but it was tolerable. Yesterday morning I woke up with this terrible feeling in my stomach. It was like when you wake up starving and all you want to do is eat to ease the feeling. I thought that's what I was having so I cooked up 2 eggs and made a yummy egg sandwich and by the time it was all ready I couldn't even look at it. So, I cooked up some oatmeal and ate it quick. Chris was the lucky receiver of the egg sandwich. I hurried and got ready for church and then got back in bed. Somehow made it to church and at the end of the service my husband so kindly pointed out that I had put my shirt on inside out. Yes, it was that kind of day. Once we got home I got in my sweats and spent the rest of the day in bed. Chris was waiting on me like a sweetheart and when we came to see what I wanted for lunch i said "nothing!" I couldn't bare to think about food. I racked my mind and decided that egg salad sounded good so I told him to make it fast while it still sounded good. My sweet mom came up last night and rescued us. She made Chris a yummy Italian dinner while I laid in bed and covered my head to I couldn't smell the pasta cooking. She went to the store and bought me anything and everything under the sun that might sound good to me. So sweet. She understands what I am going through and has sympathy. Thank God! So she understood when she saw me under the sheets with my ears plugged because I can't stand to watch commercials that talk about and show food. There are WAY too many! You never realize it until you want to throw up at each one. I'm going to start counting how many times I have to hide and plug my ears a day, just to keep me entertained. Today was just as lovely, I spent the morning getting to know my toilet really well. Thank God I'm a clean freak. Right after I got sick, sweet little Riley then threw up. Awesome. To be honest, I didn't think I was going to get morning sickness. I get all the weird things so I should have known. Speaking of weird things, I have an ovarian cyst on the right side. Talk about painful. I have been going crazy the past couple months and they finally figured it out through my ultrasound. I don't want this rambling blog to come across as complaining because in all honesty I am thankful that I feel and look like crap. It means the babe is growing and that's all that matters. I went in for more blood today...hopefully for the last time! That's all for now...I need to go and search the fridge for something that sounds good. PS. just FYI, please don't mention Mexican food to me for the next couple months. I have a hard time even typing it. Not my friend. Ok, goodnight world. Please keep praying for us!

try keeping some saltine crackers by your bed so before you even get out of bed eat one.

Hope it slows down in the 2nd trimester.

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

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

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.

HOMEMADE POP TARTS YIELD: 9 servings PREP: 1 hour COOK: 25 minutes TOTAL: 1 hour 25 minutes These are simple and SO delicious!
