Don't call me.

I don't like to use the word hate, but I really hate telemarketers. They love to call when the baby is napping which usually wakes her up or right when we sit down to eat dinner. Never once have I ever used a company because they called my house. They're annoying and I don't want anything to do with them. {side note: they do have a tough job so I give them credit & am never rude to them}

My dreams came true in February when I registered our number on the
 DO NOT CALL LIST. All you have to do is click on the link and register your number. Give it 31 days to kick in and you're golden. Did you know that once you are registered and the 31 days have passed that it's illegal for companies to call and bug you? All you have to do if they call is tell them that you're on the do not call list and they will hang up before you can push the off button. If you report a company calling when you're on the DNC list then they get slapped with a not so nice fine.

I breathe a little easier and actually like when my phone rings now because I know it's someone that I actually know and want to talk to. You can also register your cell phone if you have a problem with getting calls on there.

Happy Registering, and you really can call me. Well, as long as you don't try to sell me something or tell me that I must need to re-model something in my house {even though it's brand new.} Smart people.

Thank you for reminding me to do this!!! I am also very tired of the phone calls at dinner time, nap time, or even way early in the morning, AND way late at night! UGH....just registered our numbers :-)

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.
