praying for kate mcrae

I hope you haven't forgotten about this precious 6 year old girl who is battling cancer. She just finished up an intense chemo session. She had a years worth in 6 days. Intense! I do not know Kate but she has a very special place in my heart. Oh how I my heart longs to give this precious one a great big hug and tell her how amazing she is. She is one of the little ones I have been on my knees for day in and day out, praying for her healing. I wanted to pass this on for all of you to join us in prayer about..
Her mom posted a pretty big prayer request on the blog tonight...

"Quickly tonight we wanted to let you know what is coming up. Kate has her MRI on March 24th. Please be in prayer for these results. To be honest, I can barely even think about it. So we continue to pray for God's miraculous hand to touch Kate. We are praying for an amazing scan that day. And then sometime that weekend we will be leaving for Houston. Kate will have appointments starting on the 29th with the staff from MD Anderson in preparation for possible proton beam radiation. I also learned today that they will review her pathology slides before radiation. We are glad they are doing this as there are some questions about her exact diagnosis, but again it oftentimes brings more questions than answers. And that brings more stress. We ask that you pray for unprecedented wisdom for the doctors caring for her. That answers would emerge that would help in determining the rest of her treatment. These decisions are critical. The first round of treating these tumors is your best chance. And yet, thankfully, we know God is not limited by treatment options. Please also pray for our family as we are relishing the days at home together that will pass too quickly in order to move on to more aggressive therapies. Please pray that our hearts will be encouraged in the upcoming weeks as again we await answers and results. Thank you!! "

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..

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 IceCoffee creamer of your choiceHeavy 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!

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 from amazon.
