This post is dumb

If you don't want to waste your time then stop reading now. I just wanted to share my day with y'all. The 3 of us woke up at 8:36am this morning! Yeah! Well until I realized that it was 8:36 and we had to leave the house by 9am to make it to church on time. I refuse to be the new mom who flys into church late looking like a mess with a baby in jammies. Not going to fly. So Chris and I jump out of bed, get Kate up, give her a bowl of her morning cereal, take turn taking showers and getting ready. Chris got Kate dressed and while I was brushing my teeth like a mad woman I looked at myself and knew something wasn't right. I stared at myself and realized that my sweater was INSIDE OUT! Thank God I realized it before I sat down in church. We were all ready and in the car and pulling out of the driveway by 9:03am. YES! We did it. Chris then calmly asked if I would like to go get coffee. "Coffee?? Are you crazy, I hardly had time to put my shoes on!" He THEN said with a smile on his face "baby, church doesn't start until 10". (another smile). Why he so kindly reminded me that as we were pulling out of the driveway totally tired and out of breath is beyond me. I smiled and laughed, of course it's 10, we would never make it in time if it was 9:30. Church was wonderful. We got the best seat in the house since we were there so dang early. (((Fast forwarding...))) I'm at Sprouts with my mom and sister this afternoon doing some grocery shopping and we're in the pre-made dinner section. My mom looks down and sees these turkey dinners. This lady next to her says "oh yeah, these are the best!" My mom then tells her that they are on sale and that is when all crazy broke lose. The lady was shoving every single turkey dinner in her cart like they were hundred dollar bills. My mom says "are you going to take them all?" She managed to grab 2. This lady (my moms new BFF) then looks at her and asks her "do you drive a chevy?" <my mom > "what?" <the lady> "you look like you would drive a chevy" <my mom> "no, I don't drive a chevy." <the lady> "well you look like you would" My mom then starts to get really annoyed with this lady and says "I don't drive a Chevy, I drive a Mercedes!" The lady then says " well I have a thorough bred and that is waaaaay better than a Mercedes!" At this point I am laughing so hard out loud at my mom and this crazy woman. I said "really??, are you serious lady??" My mom was so annoyed and looked back at the chick saying "you're just rude!" We laughed all the way to the check out stand and then came the lady (and all her turkey dinner and bags of huge carrots for her thorough bred). She told the worker that there are no more turkey dinners and had him go look for some in the back. I kid you not, it was the funnies thing I've seen/heard in a long time. My mom and sister then decided to ditch me in the parking lot by speed racing back to the car while I lagged behind because I was wearing my nail salon sandals (it had just poured rain) and I was still wearing them from my pedicure I just had (best part about my day).......ahh so after this long and crazy day I am finally sitting in my comfy chair wrapped tight in my blanket writing out this dumb story while my husband and baby girl are crashed on the couch. Something is wrong with this day...

Homemade Pop Tarts

To be honest, I’m not a fan of the boxed pop tarts but homemade ones make me weak in the knees. Our local coffee shops here in Tennessee sell them and they’re my guilty pleasure.  I decided to take a quiet Tuesday morning and make some with my sweet boy. 
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.

A healthier me.

Remember my Trust your gut  post?I feel like a whole new girl since I wrote that a month ago.  So many things have been confirmed and I feel like my happy healthy self again. 
All because of two things; 1. The gallbladder cleanse that I posted about.  Literally saved my gallbladder and my sanity.  No more stomach pain! And I can drink wine and margaritas without pain again! 🙌🏼
2. I found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten. It's still a mystery to me as to how I developed this but all I know is that when I do have gluten my joints hurt, I get awful headaches and an upset stomach along with bloating. 
Back to my first post about this... I took a "before picture" thinking I was going to 5-10 pounds and then post my "after" picture. 😂😂😂
Truth is, there are still plenty of calories in gluten free food. The other truth is I'm 80-20 gluten free. I still enjoy a few non-gluten free treats here and there (and then pay for it later). 
I love food. I reward myself wit…
