I don't know what has gotten into me but I have spent most of the day scrubbing this house from floor to ceiling. I think the last time I did this was the week before I had Kate. Those of you who know me know that I am a clean FREAK. I was on my hands and knees scrubbing floors and cleaning up those lovely dust bunnies that hide under beds and desks. Washing windows, scrubbing bathrooms, making the oven look brand new. Everything is CLEAN! I washed everything, hosed the front back back down. You get the point. I even had time to sit down and pick out the tile and such things for our guest bath that we are re-modeling next month. Man, it feels good. It feels like a spring day, I had the windows open with the fresh air blowing in with my jazz music on while Kate napped like a queen! She is amazing at naps. I am blessed. Well, I think shes even better at it right now because she has a cold. Poor baby! We had fun today and took a walk through the park that is right behind our backyard. So peaceful. I definitely feel like a housewife tonight as I sit here with a happy baby in my arms, a clean house and dinner made. I am so thankful for my husband giving me this luxury of staying home and so thankful for God's provision!
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!
