My husband's ghetto fabulous truck is gone!
I am still doing the happy dance!

Chris and I went car shopping this morning.
We went to see what we could trade his truck in for
 along with the mini van that has been in our family for the past 16 years
We didn't get what we wanted so we rushed home and I listed them on

Within 15 minutes of listing the cars, we sold the truck.
It's been an awesome car for Chris, it's always been ghetto in my eyes but it served its purpose
Now that we have a family and my husband wants more kids,
 there is no way we can count on my Jeep to tow us all around town for everything.
The truck finally broke yesterday.

I could have sold the truck 22 times, I got that many people who emailed me right away.
It ended up selling over asking price and we got $600 more than what we thought we would get.
Mind you it's a salvaged vehicle!!
Don't husband is not car-less.
He is driving around town in this hot mini van.
Seriously, he totally pulls it off.

My parents bought this car brand new in 1994.
It only has 89,000 miles on it
This was my first car. I drove it for two years.
We gave it to my grandparents and now it has returned to us.
It has been stored in the garage for the past 15 years
If you know anyone who wants to buy this awesome
shaggin wagon let me know and it's yours!
 $3,000 baby!

This next week should be a very exciting one.
Can't wait to see what car my husband buys!

It's going to get totally detailed tomorrow.
You know you want it...

PS. Don't tell him I put this picture on.
 He would die. He was so embarrassed to take this picture.
Not gonna lie, I'm going to be sad to see this thing go

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…
