Oh, Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan are sexy. very sexy. Clearly I’m a huge fan of country music..much to my hubs dismay. Every time we get into the car he changes the stations on me..hes a hater. But he’s used to it by now..I’m a lover.

I’ve mentioned before how before I got pregnant I never liked cookies, at all. And I hardly every ate any candy or sweets. (Seriously, trying to lose this baby weight, and I wish I still had that problem) However, now, I can’t get enough of it.

    Hi Alaina

    I’m not a coffee drinker, but I would like to try this recipe, how do you make espresso?

      I use espresso beans, ground up. But if you don’t want to buy an entire bag, you can just make extra strong coffee as well!
