Praise the Lord!

First of all, thank you to everyone who prayed for us today. Yesterday was scary and to be honest totally had me freaked out. I didn't sleep well and this morning I couldn't do anything except sit on the bed and listen to worship music. It was the only thing that could calm my nerves. I got to the doctors office and went in right away for the ultrasound. I laid on the bed and closed my eyes and prayed. My nurse found baby Andrews right away and before I could say amen she said "I found the heartbeat!" I wanted to stand up right then and do my happy dance. I looked at the screen and there was our little one, floating around with a perfect heartbeat. We sat there and watched it for a little bit. The baby was showing off..kicking the legs and moving the arms all around. Coolest thing ever to see. Ahh such a sigh of relief. Also, baby Andrews arrival date got pushed up today, 4 days ahead of schedule! 7 more months and we will be holding this little one!! Can't believe it. I wish I had a better picture from today but this is the best one I got. Its really hard to make out everything but here is baby Andrews...now the size of a green olive! (I think this picture looks like a baby monkey, lets hope next weeks picture is better!)

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..

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. 


Ta-Da!

We just did an end of summer party and I bought everything here. The meat selection in fresh and frozen is wonderful.

You know our deep love for ribs.  Chris does them like no other.  So I thought I’d finally share our recipe.

Ribs are prepped for the oven. 


After 4+ hours in the oven the ribs go on the grill. Toss on a little extra seasoning and sauce for this part.
