The fair is coming!! I can't even believe I'm posting this but seriously, there hasn't been a day that has gone by since March that I haven't thought about the fair. This is embarrassing to admit and my family makes so much fun of me for it but I admit that I am so excited for the fair. I used to hate going, its ghetto, white trash, yucky...but last year we had a great time. I think we went 2 or 3 times and I was so sad once it was over. I don't know what it is about this year and my obsession with it but I'm counting down the days! Sadly, I will be missing opening day because we will be on vacation but you can bet that I will be there as soon as we return. I will be ordering my super pass soon. Laugh all you want! I can't wait. BBQ and funnel cakes have been calling me name. Oh how I can't wait. PS. if you ever want to go let us know. I think my husband and family can only handle it so many times!
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
