15 months and counting..

Our girl turned 15 months old last week.
I can hardly keep up with her let alone her birthday each month.
We sing her "Happy Birthday" on the 7th of each month and she thinks it's hilarious.
We love to party around here.

Some of Kate's latest...

she loves to play outside

Kate is a star at playing soccer....
just need to teach her the no hands rule!

Kate has been going to bed around 7:30 at night and each morning is different.
Sometimes she wakes up at 7am, 8am or like today 9:30am.
She loves to sleep and so do I so we're happy campers.
Our little peanut is getting so big!
She is now 23.4 pounds which is the 60th percentile and is in the 70th percentile for height!
Kate is working on her 17th tooth! They just keep coming in!
It seems that she has forgotten how to walk, all she does is run and walk backwards!

Kate loves Sunday school, loves worship music and pretty sure she already has a heart that loves Jesus.

 Praise the Lord!
 Kate loves food. She is over baby food and wants big girl food. It has helped me make meals that are a bit more on the healthy side. She loves to praise the Lord at dinner too. She's such a happy girl!
 We're at the stage where Kate knows what she wants or at least thinks she knows what she wants. We're doing our best at trying to understand what she is trying to communicate with us. She is trying so hard to say words and is getting better each day. I would love to know why "mama" is still non-existent. She's all about her dada and papa.

I find her walking around the house on her cell phone saying "hi papa". She loves her boys.
Kate loves to read. She'll bring a pile to me and say "boo", that means book. She knows all the animals in her books and will point to them when you ask where they are. It's truly amazing. There is nothing that I love more than curling up on the couch or gliding in her rocker and reading the same books over and over. Very sweet.

This girl is a complete sponge. She loves to mimic us which is quite hilarious. Every night after dinner is family time. We turn off the TV and all the distractions and just spend time as a family. Sometimes we read books, sometimes we dance, sometimes we have tickle wars. Who would have ever know this would be our entertainment. It's the best ever and we are loving every single second. Yes, even the tantrums because those too are quite hilarious.

Ahhh, life is good!

Happy 15 months baby girl.
Love you to the moon and back x10000

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.
