Oh Baby Andrews

Let me start off by saying that all the prayers worked!!!! The little one had the legs open during the whole ultrasound! I was so thrilled! I was sure we were going to walk out of that place knowing we are having a baby boy or a baby girl! We all stared at the screen trying to put the parts together and figure out what we were looking at. 98% of the time when we had "the shot" there was nothing to see. We all said girl and the tech even said girl. The at the end she said ok "it looks like you're having a boy!" The room went quiet! Not that we weren't excited, we were all shocked. I was bummed because none of us are convinced either way. Trust me we are going to be thrilled either way, we just want to be sure before all the shopping, planning and registering begins! I must admit that in a way the suspense of this is kind of fun. I know that the Lord is teaching me something through this. He knows that I'm a planner and for some reason I'm not supposed to be planning yet! I don't know what it is, but this morning was great. It was so fun to have our family there with us. In a way not knowing is nice because it just means we get more ultrasounds, I already have a book going! In case you are wondering we are going back next friday to try again. It's our free one so maybe that will be the day! We'll see! Baby Andrews was moving all around today...showing off and doing summer saults! So cute!! We got another dvd, I think this child has more time on tape and more pictures than I have when I was a baby! Thanks for praying, at least it looks like we have a healthy baby and thats all we can ask for. We're so thankful. Maybe we'll have an update next week! :)

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
