family date night

.....I live for these. Time I get to spend with my husband and baby girl is precious. It's very rare that we all have time together right now with Chris being in the middle of tax season. So when he called on his way home from work last night and asked if he could take his girls out for the evening I was all over it. Part of me really wanted to just curl up in bed and have a cozy night at home since I had been gone all day but I knew it would be good for us to get out as a family. We didn't leave the house until 8:15pm and arrived in downtown Brea a little after 8:30. That place is so much fun. SO many fun places to shop and eat and so much fun to walk the strip at night. It was hoppin last night. We walked around for a little bit then did a little shopping (of course)! We hit the jack pot at Old Navy. As I was shopping for some fun new summer clothes for me, Chris was off with Kate shopping for her. He picked out some killer outfits. So adorable. I found the cutest little pink tutu bathing suit for this summer. Our girl has a way better wardrobe that us. She also has the nicest closet in the house. What? Ok, back to our date night.... after 40 minutes of successful shopping we ended our evening at Crepes de Paris. We have been to every one in Cali, very proud about that. It was just what we needed, a nutella crepe and carmel lates'. So delish and so good for the soul. The perfect way to end our week! Our precious girl is getting to be an even better sleeper. Going from 8 hours a night to now 10! We didn't wake up until 9:30 this morning. Feeling refreshed and ready for our fun weekend! Have a great one y'all!


Yummy....

So much sweetness

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.

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

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
