Ellen!

I got tickets to the Ellen show last month and show day was yesterday! My mom, sister and my BFF headed to LA for the day and had so much fun! Lunch and coffee at Farmer's Market.
 I love that place. Seriously fun!






















After lunch we walked a few steps over to the Grove.
 Love the shops there.
I started a little Christmas shopping & bought myself a fabulous new hair straightener.
Mario Lopez was next to us filming EXTRA....he's adorable.


















My camera died right after this picture was taken!

Thank God my bff had her iPhone and was able to snap a couple more memories..

















 All checked in with our numbers!
We had soo much fun at the taping. If you think Ellen dances on her show. Ha. She has nothing on the audience. We were moving every minute except while we were filming. The warm ups before the show were crazy. We were having singing competitions and dancing competitions and laughing hard because you feel like the biggest dork. But then again, who really cares. We were all dorks together. This show confirmed that I am one white girl. I seriously have no moves. The Ellen Show brought out some crazy moves I didn't know I had and they will most likely never be seen again!

Ellen is awesome. I love her dearly. I might not agree with some of the things she does but that doesn't make me think any less of her. She is an amazing woman and I loved that we got to be part of her show and experience it live.

After the show was over we had dinner and headed home. All I wanted to do was click my heels and be in bed. I was so beat. It was fun to pull out my dancing shoes and have a girls day...it was definitely just what I needed!

Can't wait to go back next year!

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.
