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! :)

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. Or if you want to skip the homemade dough all together you can use pie crust in the refrigerated section at the grocery store! 
Here’s what I did..

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 IceCoffee creamer of your choiceHeavy 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!

Recipe for the best ribs ever.

You can imagine my excitement when I discovered Gordon Food Service. I used to pass by it weekly and wonder what the heck was in there. Do yourself a favor and look them up ASAP and see if there is one close to you. I am a fan for life!



As a busy mom who loves to cook and make delicious meals but also needs to stay on budget, I can do it all with Gordon’s Food Service!
If you have a big family or throw parties, this is the place to shop. 
We just did an end of summer party and I bought everything here. The meat selection in fresh and frozen is wonderful. 


And you see those peanut butter krispies?  To die for!  In the frozen section. Thank me later. 



You know our deep love for ribs.  Chris does them like no other.  So I thought I’d finally share our recipe.

Ribs are prepped for the oven. 


After 4+ hours in the oven the ribs go on the grill. Toss on a little extra seasoning and sauce for this part.
