our day

Today was beautiful. in. every. way. Kate did really well with the time change. She slept for 8 hours straight, ate and went back to sleep for 3 more hours. Us girls got up around 10 this morning and the dada didn't get up until a little after noon. That's right, twelve o'clock. Must be nice huh? He needed it and it was well deserved. He works so hard for our little family and needed those extra couple of hours. Since we totally missed breakfast we skipped right to lunch and enjoyed it in the backyard over yummy carmel mocha's. Those will make anyone feel better, right? After lunch we packed up the car and drove all of 4 minutes to Yorba Regional Park. It was just what we needed. Fresh air. Sunshine. Blue Skies. The smell of BBQ. Exercise. Good conversations with my husband. A sweet nap for Kate. An all around good time! We had our own BBQ in the backyard this evening. Made the best burgers in town. You could say that we are ready for Spring and it's sunshine. Sad to say good bye to the weekend. It was so nice having Chris home with us. Kate and I have a lot of things coming up to keep us busy so that will help the time pass. It's time I log off the machine and go snuggle my loves. Chris is in bed feeding Kate and hearing him talk and sing to her is melting my heart. Sweet dreams y'all.

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.. HOMEMADE POP TARTS YIELD: 9 servings PREP: 1 hour COOK: 25 minutes TOTAL: 1 hour 25 minutes These are simple and SO delicious! A flaky, buttery pastry with strawberry and brown sugar cinnamon fillings, and they’re frosted, of course!
