35 weeks and a Babymoon!

I cannot believe how fast the days are flying by. I'm finishing up my 35th week with sweet Mason in my belly and we are getting ready for his arrival and life with THREE kids. This is crazy. I've been calm this whole pregnancy about #3 but you know those pre-birth nerves that come before delivery? Yeah, I have those. Dumb.

I am feeling good for the most part. If you don't include sleep, being uncomfortable and looking like an Ogre, then things are awesome. I've never swelled during my previous pregnancies so this one has sort of taken me by surprise but I'm so close to the finish line and I'm trying to not focus on looking and feeling huge. This too shall pass. 

I'm hungry all the time but then I eat a little and feel like I just ate a cow because holy smokes there is no room left in there. My heartburn is just about as bad as it was with Kate. I'm on the highest dose of Zantac and still throw up... again, this too shall pass. 

Chris and I got away this past weekend to one of our favorite local resorts in the desert for our Babymoon. Whether you're on your first baby or your sixth, you need to take a babymoon. Such sweet time to re connect, talk and dream about the days ahead before we're totally incoherent sleep deprived again. It was so weird not having schedules to go off of and little ones to tend to. The rest was amazing but it was SO good coming home to our sweet treasures.

My to- list before Mason arrives is long but I'm making headway daily. My eyes are on the prize. I can hardly wait to lay in the hospital bed and just snuggle our newest love. 








 35 weeks down
less than 35 days to go.
Let's do this!

Also, I wonder if my friends will ditch me if I start wearing crocs until I get this boy out.
Only two pairs of my sandals fit on my right foot. What the what? Help!

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.
