How are y'all surviving this crazy storm? I am loving it! Thankful that our neighborhood has AWESOME drainage. The wind is insane!! Thank God our palm trees are now secure so they won't be falling over ever 5 seconds anymore! I've never seen a storm like this. We have had hail everyday. We needed this water so bad! Kate and I have been snuggled inside all day everyday and it has been wonderful. We gotten some awesome snuggle time in. Lots of smiles, giggles and naps. Tell me this isn't the life? I am proud to say that today I did not leave my bed and I don't feel bad about it one bit. Well I did to get up to do laundry, eat breakfast and lunch, make bottles, change 20+ diapers but you get the point. I brought fairyland on the bed along with the bumbo chair. We had an awesome view of the storm while laying in bed and looking out the sliding doors. Rain is an awesome form of entertainment for an infant y'all. She was so amused. As was I :) I have really enjoyed just being home this week. Quite refreshing. Praying for all of those who are dealing with the slides and horrible damage from the winds. Scary stuff. There's been a good amount of damage in our city where all the fires took place last year. So sad! There is no better way to experience a storm than having a baby snuggled on your chest. I have dreamt about this day for years and it is as wonderful as I imagined. Feeling so blessed tonight.
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
