Fatty McFatso's



I realize I just gave birth 13 weeks ago but not sure how long I can use that excuse. I'm fat. Ok maybe fat isn't the right word. I'm chunky and this weight isn't all from my precious son. I happen to love food and seem to love it even more when I'm exhausted. I have never been such a fatso in my life. Back fat? Y'all, I have back fat. I'm mortified and even more so with swim suit season upon us. This is going to take some serious work and I don't even know where to start. My arms, my legs, my back, my stomach, my face...holy smokes even my calves! I lost 30 pounds when Kate was 7 months old and I have 20 pounds to go this time and LOTS of toning to do.
My handsome man is in this with me. He gained sympathy pregnancy weight so I wouldn't feel so bad. Isn't he sweet? We're going back to the basics. Cutting down on carbs, dairy and sugar and adding more protein, fruits and veggies. Cutting down on sugar will be the hardest for me since I have the biggest sweet tooth EVER! I'm determined and my goal is to be in my little teal bikini for Cabo which is in the beginning of August.
I took my "before" picture last week in that teal bikini and if I make my goal weight by the end of July I will post it here for y'all to see along with my "after". And just in case you're wondering how bad my before picture is, my mom was rolling on the floor when I showed it to her. Mainly because I had just taken it the day before but seriously, it's bad!

 I'll check back in at the end of next month. Pray there is progress!

Homemade Pop Tarts

To be honest, I’m not a fan of the boxed pop tarts but homemade ones make me weak in the knees. Our local coffee shops here in Tennessee sell them and they’re my guilty pleasure.  I decided to take a quiet Tuesday morning and make some with my sweet boy. 
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!

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!
