Oh my Kate

Our little one is a character. We can't get over her personality and the little things she does that are absolutely hilarious. Kate is getting bigger, stronger, smarter and cuter as the days fly by.
Her new favorite things to do are:
* stand on the scale every morning while I get ready and pull out all our bath towels. Awesome. As of this morning she weighs 22.8 pounds. She's small but so mighty and solid.
* Run around the house with either laundry or blankets over her head. We try to discourage this but seriously, it's hilarious. Today she grabbed Chris' clean laundry and ran through the house for all of 40 seconds until she ran into the wall..
(sorry about the blurry picture, she was running)

Boom!

Kate's vocabulary is starting to expand..
Mama, Dada, Papa, baa (ball), doo doo (thank you), yo (hello), ree (tree)
We're working on water, kitty and hi right now.
It is so amazing teaching Kate and watching her grow.
Definitely has to be the most rewarding job out there!

Did I mention that Kate has a new look that she gives?
It's not pretty or nice but it is hilarious.
It's extra funny when she looks directly at you and does it.
I have tried to capture it and this is the best I can do for now.
It's this minus the smile and more of a scowl.
Sometimes she'll walk around the house with the look on her face for no reason.
 I seem to get the look the most because I am the one who is always wiping her face or putting pony tails in her hair. It's hard not to laugh.
 Oh the drama.

She wins the prize for "Drama Queen" in this house. She gets slumpy and mad over the silliest things. Today she was mad because she couldn't move the zipper on her purse. This is the ostrich pose.  She throws her head down on the floor and pouts. Right before she does this she normally holds her cheeks and whines.


















It's never boring here at our house. Our days are 100 times more joyful and crazy but absolutely wonderful. It is almost impossible to imagine what our life without Kate was like.
All of God's grace is in Kate's precious face.
We truly cannot get enough of her!

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!

Recipe for the best ribs ever.

You can imagine my excitement when I discovered Gordon Food Service. I used to pass by it weekly and wonder what the heck was in there. Do yourself a favor and look them up ASAP and see if there is one close to you. I am a fan for life!



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!
If you have a big family or throw parties, this is the place to shop. 
We just did an end of summer party and I bought everything here. The meat selection in fresh and frozen is wonderful. 


And you see those peanut butter krispies?  To die for!  In the frozen section. Thank me later. 



You know our deep love for ribs.  Chris does them like no other.  So I thought I’d finally share our recipe. 
All of our items are from Gordon’s Food Service Store.  (Recipe will be posted below)

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.
