Viva Las Vegas

Yeah, the title cracks me up because we are so not the Vegas type of couple. We are here in sin city for the weekend with Chris' firm. They sponsored the whole weekend for us to show their appreciation to the employees (all 26 of them) for working so hard during tax season. We're at an awesome resort (Planet Hollywood) and we also have an awesome view (38 floor!) Lets pray Vegas doesn't get earthquakes! Yesterday we walked around a few of the resorts and did some shopping. We decided that we wanted to go to the buffet at our hotel for dinner. Its apparently voted the best buffet in Vegas....yeah $30 a person! It was a little disappointing. I hardly ate, but the dessert section was amazing!! We had some pretty tasty crepes! Mmmm! Baby Andrews was a fan. We were so tired and were back in the room and in bed by 8pm. How is that for a city that never sleeps? We're having a great time but its heartbreaking to see the filth. In filth I mean the selling of one anothers body to make money. I can't believe all the men and women who are selling themselves short and have no self respect. Sad! Vegas is packed this weekend, all the resorts are sold out. Tonight Britney Spears is in town and so is Kenny Chesney along with Cher and a handful of other entertainers. Looking forward to today! We're going to do a little shopping and hang out at the pool before we meet up with everyone for dinner!

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..
