A month old...

Already!? Where has the time gone? In a way it feels like more than a month with all we have been through but in another way I can't believe it's already been a month. Our little six and a half pound baby is now nine pounds! She is developing some pretty awesome rolls on her legs and has a pretty cute double chin. Shes trying to keep up with her momma, except mine are NOT cute. She continues to make us fall more in love with her everyday. We are convinced that she is the most precious, cutest, sweetest baby in the world. We might be a little biased but hey....it's true! Life as the three of us is quite different than when it was the two of us but we are adjusting well. Kate seems to have her days and nights mixed up most nights. She enjoys having a party in her moses basket for multiple hours during the night. Wish we weren't invited to those parties but it's so hard to deny those baby blue eyes staring at you. Kate is becoming really observant and curious to everything around her. She lifts her strong neck and does the little bobble head thing as she looks around the room and stares at us. One of our favorite things she does is her whistle face. I will have to catch a picture of it soon. Best face ever. We are enjoying each new day with this precious girl and feel so blessed to call her ours. We love you baby girl! And now.... a few pictures from the past couple weeks!

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

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
