  Thanksgiving is over which means we’re full force into the Christmas season! I both smile at cringe at the thought. Because, well, is your to do list a mile long? Because mine sure is! We’ve got Christmas programs on the calendar, family visiting, a move (but that’s a story for another day), decorating, gift buying, […]

Cream Cheese Spritz Cookies

Cream Cheese Spritz Cookies

I have two fantastic things to pass on to ya’ll today. First, a super easy and wonderful way to send our love to those affected by the California wildfires and hurricane victims in Texas and Florida (because yes, although it’s not in the news anymore, many are still recovering from the devastation). And second, a […]

   Oh. My. Goodness. I cannot wait for you to try this recipe! Grilled cheese has always been a comfort food of mine so when the weather cools and the holidays are around the corner, you can pretty much bet that grilled cheese is on my mind. But, as I’ve gotten older, wiser, and more […]

Awhile back (summer 2016 to be exact), baby Reid and I made the trek to Texas to visit my sister. There, I fell in love with Tex-Mex. Deep, cheesy, fresh salsa, Tres Leches kinda love.

  It’s Labor Day Weekend annnnnnnd, guess who is NOT in labor? ^^^ This girl ^^^  I’m “celebrating” … I think. One, because I’m not due until Friday. So, it’s not like I actually expected to be in labor. In fact, I’ve gone a few days late with every baby so I’m fully expecting a 41 […]

Building News!

We think we have found property to build on! A quaint little acre with trees and a peek at the port. Everything is so “maybe” with it all … until it’s not, I guess. Which is exactly why Dominic is begging me to be just hesitantly excited. But I can’t help it. I’M EXCITED! We’ve been […]

Tres Leches Cake

Tres Leche Cake

Why is it that pregnancy cravings are always unattainable? I knew I was in trouble when I felt a hankering for Chuy’s Tres Leches Cake. Because Chuy’s is no where close to me. Like, when I searched, to see if a road trip was feasible, I discovered that the closest Chuy’s was almost 2,000 miles […]
