is this awesome sling. I finally pulled it out of the closet yesterday when Kate was being super needy. She did not want to swing or snuggle in her bed. She wanted to snuggle on me. Don't get me wrong, my favorite thing in the world is to snuggle with her but I can't sit on my butt all day. I got her all snuggly in the little kangaroo pouch and away we went around the house and did our chores. It was wonderful until I tried to wash my face. I couldn't bend over to wash the soap off my face or else I would have slammed her into the vanity so I took a wash cloth and cleaned myself up. I then attempted to put my face on (make-up) and realized I was also getting make up on her. So I had to stand side ways with my face turned away from her so none of it would drop on her. We did some laundry, cleaned the dishes and then Riley threw up. Seriously? As if trying to wash my face and put on my make up weren't challenging enough I now had to get on the floor and clean up this mess. I took Kate down with me and we did it. I can now do anything with her snuggled in her pouch on my stomach. Thing thing will be going grocery shopping with us, to church, you name it, it's there!...it is our new best friend!
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
