This has been such a great and exciting week. Monday, the crown molding was installed (it's so big, I love it!). Tuesday, my dad came up and painted the crown and touched up the room. He and Chris also brought the changing table/dresser and hutch in the nursery along with the glider. Wednesday, Chris built the crib and my parents brought up the bedding. Her room is almost complete. There are still a handful of details that need to be done but we're getting there! I am thrilled with how it is coming along. I walk by her room and my heart melts. It's my new favorite room in the house. I sat in the glider all last night just staring at the room and dreaming of the day that she will be in there. I ate breakfast in there this morning. It's pathetic really but I am just so happy. It's all becoming so real now. I honestly can't even think about holding her because I get way too excited and antsy. My new favorite hobby is shopping for the peanut. She officially has the cutest wardrobe I have ever seen! She is so loved already. Her closet is my second favorite place in the house. So fun. Our house feels complete now as I walk by all the rooms. Kate has already blessed our life so much and we are counting down the days until we get to meet her!! I'll be posting pics on her blog soon so stay turned!
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
