14 months old

14 months!
Not sure why Kate looks cross-eyed in her 14 month picture! ha
14 months! (deep sigh!) SLOW DOWN!  Time is flying by way too fast around here. 14 months and we are more in love that we knew was ever possible. Our baby girl still amazes us everyday. Here are some of the highlights
  • Kate is now 22 pounds
  • She wears 18-24 month clothing, 24 month jammies and size 4 shoes
  • She now has 12 teeth! 4 of her molars just came in and we didn't even know it!
  • She sleeps 12 hours a night and still takes 2 naps a day
  • Her words consist of; mama, dada, papa, buh by, hiii, ree, titty (kitty!!), doo doo (thank you), I'm sure there is one I'm missing but those are the ones coming to mine
  • She loves to read, play outside, go on walks, shop and play hide and seek
  • Kate is an amazing dancer! She knows how to shake her booty and clap her hands at the same time
  • She loves other kids!
  • There is no more walking, this kid is a runner!
  • This kid looooves her food
I could go on about how wonderful she is and the amazing fits she throws that practically put us on the floor rolling with laughter but I'll save those for another time. Happy 14 months baby girl! We're on our way to the terrific 2's! :)

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.. HOMEMADE POP TARTS YIELD: 9 servings PREP: 1 hour COOK: 25 minutes TOTAL: 1 hour 25 minutes These are simple and SO delicious! A flaky, buttery pastry with strawberry and brown sugar cinnamon fillings, and they’re frosted, of course!

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  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

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 fr
