whew!

I am feeling like a new woman tonight. My long list of "things to do before the babe arrives" is getting shorter! I won't even begin to bore you with what is on my list but let me tell you, it's long! Tonight I got to cross off a few big ones! #1. Our air conditioner was fixed yesterday. This is great news. It was making the most annoying sound in the world every time it turned on so I hated turning it on. Since I have my own built in personal heater it is not acceptable for the house to be warmer than 74 degrees so I was living with the sound....not anymore! :) #2. The Jeep now has new breaks, tires and the alignment has been fixed! This was totally weighing on my shoulders. It has to be safe and in perfect shape to tote the princess around in. #3. I finally made an appointment to go see my dermatologist. Thank you to all of you who have been nagging me to go in and have my sun spots looked at. I feel relieved knowing that I'll know soon if they are ok or not. #4. Made my appointment for my ultrasound next Wednesday, can hardly wait to see Kate again. We know that everything is fine so we're looking forward to getting some good news and one last sneak peak. #5. I only have 2 more days of work left. That's right people. 2! I am going to miss taking care of the kiddos but I am really looking forward to having a month of no work, no nothing! I will be doing all of my last minute nesting things next month. Oh, I can hardly wait!!!! That's it for now. I need to rest up for some more partying that is going to happen this weekend! :)

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.

HOMEMADE POP TARTS YIELD: 9 servings PREP: 1 hour COOK: 25 minutes TOTAL: 1 hour 25 minutes These are simple and SO delicious!
