Cabo, day 6

Here we are on day 6 and it almost seems like we're on day 10... there is no such thing as time here. No plans, no agendas....it's great. Chris and I slept in a bit later today. We had breakfast on the balcony and then headed back to Santa Maria Bay. The boys snorkeled and the girls laid out. I bought some peas for them to feed the fish with and they got some insane pictures of some pretty insane fish. So glad I didn't have to experience it, seeing pictures on the camera is enough for me. Chris is trying to talk me into going with him in the morning and he promises he won't bring peas with him but I'm not sure yet. I'm becoming more of a chicken with things as I get older. Maybe it was my father in law talking about his encounter with the fish today, they came right in between his arms and in his face! Yikes! After snorkeling we came back to the pool and had a great afternoon. When Chris and I got in the pool a cute couple sitting on the side stopped me mid swim and asked when I am due. I was totally caught off guard. I didn't think anyone could tell I'm pregnant? Maybe its my lovely maternity tankini that gave it away!? ha. Who knows but it was fun talking babies with them. We had our yummy strawberry smoothies and soaked up lots more sun! Chris arranged for me to get a prenatal massage at the spa tonight and let me tell you....it was incredible! I wasn't sure what to except but it was the most comfortable and relaxing experience. Kate loved it too. For all my pregnant friends out there, GET ONE! They are totally worth it. I thought I was jello earlier, now Im a big jello jiggler! My mother in law came with me and she got a massage too. It was pure bliss! I'm not too motivated to do anything else tonight. Chris and I went for a walk on the beach, the moon is gorgeous and its shining down on the ocean which makes it sparkle. Its a perfect night here in Cabo.

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

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.
