Cabo, day 1

We made it! Getting here sure is a hassle but we made it to our resort around 3pm and got all settled. It was a MUCH better experience than it was when we were here 7 months ago. We got a sweet Jeep for the week and are staying at possibly one of the nicest resorts in Cabo. Its a Hilton and we all feel like we've died and gone to Heaven. I can't even wrap my mind around what Heaven is going to be like. I sure hope its like Cabo! :) Anything and everything you can think of, this resort has. And the best part is the resort is basically empty. Our condo is overlooking a huge gorgeous pool. I've posted some pics but will try to get better ones tomorrow. The pool is huge and there is an enormous swim up bar with big comfy bed like lounge chairs surrounding it. The pool next to us is a raised infinity pool so it looks like it drops right off into the ocean. We're totally blown away. The weather is perfect as is everything else. We are all so relaxed already. We're just so thankful for this time away, it was much needed! Not much else to update...Chris and I have our own suite off the main condo and it's awesome. We have our own little kitchen and the bathroom is bigger than our master suite at home! The jetted bathtub overlooks the ocean. I took a bath tonight and watched fireworks go off over the ocean. Does it get much better than this? I think Kate is already a fan of Cabo. She kicked the whole way here on the flight and has been a very busy girl today. We are happy and blessed. Can't wait to see what the week has in store! Enjoy a few pictures that we took upon arriving today...
Once again, we are in Mexico and my computer has switched to spanish settings and so I'm sorry if there are spelling errors. One day I will learn Spanish well enough to translate all my mistakes :)

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!

Recipe for the best ribs ever.

You can imagine my excitement when I discovered Gordon Food Service. I used to pass by it weekly and wonder what the heck was in there. Do yourself a favor and look them up ASAP and see if there is one close to you. I am a fan for life!



As a busy mom who loves to cook and make delicious meals but also needs to stay on budget, I can do it all with Gordon’s Food Service!
If you have a big family or throw parties, this is the place to shop. 
We just did an end of summer party and I bought everything here. The meat selection in fresh and frozen is wonderful. 


And you see those peanut butter krispies?  To die for!  In the frozen section. Thank me later. 



You know our deep love for ribs.  Chris does them like no other.  So I thought I’d finally share our recipe. 
All of our items are from Gordon’s Food Service Store.  (Recipe will be posted below)

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.
