Perfect Summer Day

Today started off perfect. My husband let me slumber in the sheets until 9am while he fed Kate and entertained her. I slept so hard that when I woke up my pony tail had not moved and I had sheet marks all over me. I woke up to a happy baby who was packed up and ready for the beach. My man made me a big delicious ice blended carmel mocha to take in the car and off we went!
We met some friends at the beach to play volleyball.
Chris played while Kate and I hung out in the tent.
    Kate slept..
    So I slept..
    It was Heavenly
There is nothing better than digging your toes into the cold sand
 and falling asleep to the sound of crashing waves.
 Right?

Not sure what Kate is doing

It was almost a perfectly clear day to see Catalina Island
checking out the water with dad
                                                                            ..loves..
the car ride home was very quiet...
We came home for showers and naps and then headed back down to the beach for dinner with the family.
Tonight we celebrated my grandmas 81st birthday and celebrated my sister's 17th...again.
We went to the Spaghetti Bender

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!

As a busy mom who loves to cook and make delicious meals but also needs to stay on budget, I can do it all with Gordon’s Food Service!

We just did an end of summer party and I bought everything here. The meat selection in fresh and frozen is wonderful.

You know our deep love for ribs.  Chris does them like no other.  So I thought I’d finally share our recipe.

Ribs are prepped for the oven. 


After 4+ hours in the oven the ribs go on the grill. Toss on a little extra seasoning and sauce for this part.
