No title tonight.

Oh my goodness, this has been quite a week! I was released from the hospital on Saturday afternoon. It felt so good coming home but part of me wished I had stayed an extra day to get even more rest in. I know that sounds funny but its so hard once you're home. It seems like there is always laundry to do, dishes to wash, phones to answer. Ahhh. I just want to sleep. We could not have gotten through this without my parents. They were our Godsend. They came to visit me in the hospital a couple times which was nice for me and it gave someone else for Chris to hang out with and go eat with. They went to our house while we were in the hospital and disinfected the whole place and got it clean before we came home. My mom made us a fabulous dinner for Saturday and Sunday night....ahh thank you! It gave us such a lift! So here we are.....home. I am getting better each day which is a praise and now my husband thinks he is coming down with the flu. Nooooo! I wanted to cry when he told me that this morning. Now he is a bit dramatic whenever he doesn't feel well and it takes a ton of patience on my part but we cannot have this, not right now. I want so bad to be able to take care of him but I'm just not there yet. I'm still recovering from being extremely ill, I'm exhausted and not to mention this 9 month belly of mine. I called the doctor first thing this morning and got him on Tamiflu. We are praying that it kicks in soon. Please join us in that prayer. We definitely can't get through this on our own. Even though this past week has sucked (to be totally honest) we do have much to be thankful for tonight. I am so thankful that we have such great insurance and we are able to get amazing care and prescriptions to help make us well. I am so thankful that Kate is doing well and that none of this has affected her. We were so worried about her. I am most thankful that we have a Heavenly Father who has been and is watching over us and taking care of our every need. He knows what we can handle and gives us the strength and endurance to climb each hill that is set before us. With that being said....we will continue to trust in Him and rest tonight knowing that He is in control. :)

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

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

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..
