Cabo, day 2

Sunday was what Sundays are supposed to be about, a day of rest! We slept in, had some breakfast and headed out to the pool. There were probably 5 people out there max. It is so quiet around here. We're at a huge Hilton resort and they say its only 40% occupied. Sweet! The pool is the best thing you've ever been in. It almost feels like a river, it winds around every corner and it's an infinity pool. So fun. We did that for a couple of hours, then went up to the condo for lunch and headed to downtown Los Cabos. We putted around here for a bit and I was ready to leave in the first 5 minutes of being there. We were at the marina and apparently there was some big carnival fiesta thing going on and the main event was the "cock fights". Let me tell you, worst thing ever! Such a terrible sound of those poor roosters. I dont like roosters but I felt so bad. I don't know if it was my motherly instincts coming out or what but I was terrified. The boys found the boat that they are going fishing on and we left. We then went to 2 different coves for snorkeling. We were just scoping out today....going back another day to actually snorkel. After all of that Chris and I went back to our pool and swam for a bit. We are already like jello. We both commented on how much we needed this rest. We've had so much on our hearts and minds this past month and so much work to do when we get home to prepare for our little bundle that we are so grateful for this week away. Thank you Lord! His timing is so perfect. We couldn't have picked a better week to get away but He knew we would need this break when we booked this trip 6 months ago. Once we all got cleaned up we hit the road to downtown Cabo. We were told to go to "Ponchos" for dinner. So glad we took the recommendation, it was fabulous!! It was an open air authentic mexican food restaurant and we were all very happy with our choices. Iwish I could insert scents into the blog so you could smell how wonderful it was. The smells were amazing! After dinner we walked around downtown for a bit, we're looking forward to coming back and hitting the beach there. We had a pretty mellow night. Came back to our condo and the boys got their fishing things together for their big adventure in the morning, we skyped with some family members (always fun!) Chris and I played skip-bo on our balcony and then it was time to hit the hay! Another day in paradise, another blessing from above...

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!

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 from amazon.
