.happy.

Things are going well and moving along at the Andrews household. We had a blessed Easter. Spent it with our family and close friends at my parents house for brunch. Chris and I spent all weekend at my parents house which was fun. We had our first doctors appointment today with my doctor. It was so great to meet him, a blessing really. He is the neatest guy. The thing I love most about him is his love for the Lord and his passion for life. It was a very positive appointment, I have lost 1.5 pounds since our last visit to the office. I was stoked. I had literally just come from eating my bbq wrap from red robin with my endless basket of fries and ranch.. More good news is I passed my glucose test with flying colors. I am so happy. Doc said that everything looks great! Heartbeat was strong again today beating at 167bpm. As we were listening there was a funky sound and he said that was the baby kicking and moving around! Baby Andrews is now the size of a lemon, about 3.5 inches! It is so nice to be in the 2nd trimester! I am feeling SO much better!!! Can't wait to see what the next couple of weeks hold! We're finding out the sex of the baby this Friday!! Woohoo! Pray that Baby A cooperates and isn't too modest!! Here are a couple of pictures from Easter...baby bump is making an appearance. I hardly fit into my jeans anymore!

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

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

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.. HOMEMADE POP TARTS YIELD: 9 servings PREP: 1 hour COOK: 25 minutes TOTAL: 1 hour 25 minutes These are simple and SO delicious! A flaky, buttery pastry with strawberry and brown sugar cinnamon fillings, and they’re frosted, of course!
