So in response to the previous post, this blog will be under construction until the 1st of the year. It's going to take me a while to design the new one. In other news, we are ready for Christmas! All of the gifts have been bought and are wrapped under the tree. I can hardly wait for Christmas! I feel like a little kid all over again. I am so excited for Kate's first Christmas even though she won't have a clue as to what's going on. She is our most precious gift. She's all we prayed and wished for. I don't need anything else. Chris and I are gift givers. We love buying things for others and bringing joy to those we love. I wish we had more to give. That thought brings my mind to Christ. He sent His precious Son to die for me. His greatest gift, He gave up for you. and. me. I am super excited about His gift and so thankful. I will never have anything worthy enough to pay Him back. I am so thankful that there is no need to even try to. I can only imagine the joy it brings Christ when one of His children come back to Him and accept His gift, His Son. Our prayer is that many will come to know Him this Christmas season and accept the most precious gift ever. This Christmas is going to be an extra special one at our house....much to be thankful for!
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
