Kate and I had a date with Papa last night. Chris was lobster diving, Megan was with friends and momma is in New York. We both needed company so we went out and had so much fun at dinner. We went to the Lazy Dog which is always fun. Kate thought it was totally cool, she loved the lights and the doggies that were outside. She also chowed down her mac and cheese and french fries. I think she ate more than we did! She is becoming quite attached to her Papa and now walks around the house chanting his name. I'm feeling low on the totem pole these days because she only says my name once a month. What is up with that?! Thanks dad for a great date night! We are enjoying everyday together as he is getting ready to have his big surgery in 6 days and will be laying low for quite some time to recover. Please keep praying for him!
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 Ice Coffee creamer of your choice Heavy 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! Tag me on Instagram at
