One more story to bore you all. I need my pregnant friends and previously pregnant friends to come in on this one... Last night, I was obviously very content after my cheeseburger and had a great night sleep. I was sleeping great until someone called my cell phone at 2:45am! Who does that?! Anyway, after that I fell into a deep sleep and had a bunch of crazy dreams. Dreams I won't even fill you in on. The oddest thing though. I woke up around 5:45am laughing hysterically. I was laughing in my dream and apparently I was laughing out loud the whole time. Chris was the one who woke me up out of it....I think I completely freaked him out. He freaked me out! It was a good dream and he ruined it! Once I was awake I couldn't stop laughing. It was like the full on belly laugh, you know where you get the giggles and just can't stop? I tried to explain to Chris that it was a hilarious dream (even though it was so extremely lame, I'm not even going to tell you what it was about. Embarrassing!) I fell back asleep while laughing and then had this fabulous dream about the fair. (another embarrassing dream) I was painting people nails and it was just starting to get really exciting and then....the phone rang!! Ahhh.. Anyway. I woke up in such a giggly and bubbly mood thanks to my fabulous dreams. Are any of my other preggo's and mom friends having crazy dreams?? It's kind of fun, I fall asleep and I'm entertained and at the fair! Doesn't get any better than that... Now that I have completely made a fool of myself to all of you I'm going to go make dinner. But please, someone tell me this is part of crazy hormones going on right?! Or maybe I really am just plain nuts.
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
