Fro Bow

This is embarrassing. Really. I know that I have been blessed with extra thick hair and I will bet anyone $500 that I will never go bauld. Great right? BUT I hate it. I've never been a fan of my hair. It's horrible. Gross. Too big. Boring. Yadda yadda yadda. It's curly, crimpy, coarse, nasty... Obviously, I don't like it. The only thing I do like and appreciate about my hair is the color. I have never colored, bleached or died it. It is all natural baby. When I was in elementary school I was nick named "fro bow". It was never a bad thing, all of my friends named me that. (hmmm, maybe they weren't really my friends??? haha) I had a fro and my mom made me a bow to go with every single outfit I owned. Not kidding. They weren't you average cute little bow...no, they were big. Perfect for a fro. When I get a chance I will go back and find a picture and post those beauties for all of you to swoon over. When I was a senior in high school I got my hair chemically straightened. Best thing ever invented since whipped cream. It lasted for about a year and I continued to do it until we got married. (I'm convinced that Chris would have never taken a second look at me if my hair was how it is today). Ever since getting pregnant and giving birth my hair has changed. And not for the good... It is either in a bun or a pony tail every single day. I am finally going to bite the bullet and get the "Japanese" hair straightening done this Thursday!!!! Hallelujah!!!!! I won't go into details of how much this is costing my husband but it will be oh so worth it. He's pretty excited. I can't even tell you how excited I am. I'm literally counting down the hours until Thursday. It will take at least 4 hours and I will walk out of that salon feeling like a new woman. If only I could walk out of there 10 pounds lighter and toned too. Darn! Ok, so here are a couple pics that were taken this morning of my hair and what it looks like when I get out of the shower. I don't have enough guts to show you what it looks like dry, sorry! It even scares me... So here is the before shot. Stay tuned for the "after" one coming this Thursday! Yeah baby!!!

Family Room DIY makeover

Remember that one time my husband bought a tv wall mount and then I decided we needed a new tv stand? And then it made me realize our dark furniture would look way better if I lightened it up? And then it was time to get rid of the old dark throw pillows and dark rug? And then all of a sudden that fireplace looked so out of place. So we gutted it.  All because we put the tv on the wall!  Here’s a little walk down our DIY family room makeover.  Before .  I started with this old corner cabinet that i got for free years ago and painted chocolate brown.  I dusted her off and went to town with chalk paint.  Then I got rid of the old dark rug and started changing out our throw pillows.  Then it was onto the fireplace.  Before   Chris took out part of the wood floor to extend the floor of the tiny fireplace.  We also cleaned out the fireplace and sprayed it with cream paint that can withstand 1,200 degree temperatures.  And then we sucked out the old volcano rock and put in this fire glass fr

The best iced coffee, ever.

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

Goodie Girl Cookie Pop Tarts

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..
