yes, we are. We have been trying to pretend that Riley is still at the vet and will be coming home soon. Its so hard coming home to our house with no fur ball waiting for us at the door. I dread getting up in the morning to go to Kate's room to get her clothes because Riley won't be following me in there. It's not the same making dinner and not having him begging me to give him some. Last night we realized that we are totally living in denial when we got home and received a card from the hospital where he died telling us how sorry they are about his passing. Or the flowers that our vet sent us because they adored our boy and feel so bad. We were really hoping that this was just a bad dream and we were going to wake up one morning to him squawking at us. I guess it really is real and he really is gone. Ouch. ouch. ouch.
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
