Tres Leches Cake


If you've never had Tres Leches...then you're seriously missing out!! It's so rich and unique...I just love it!! Now I should warn you though...Tres Leches isn't your "typical cake"...it's moist. Actually I'm not sure if moist is even the right word to use...it's semi-liquidy!! Sounds weird I know...but it's amazing!! 


Christmas Markets-Austin Texas 2019


Tis the Season to Go To Christmas Markets...Fa-La-La-La-La, La-La-La-La (I had to sing that slowly so I could get all the "La"s in there...hahaha).

Every year I look forward to going to Christmas Markets...it's just so festive!! I've been going to Christmas Markets my whole life!! I remember when I was little, we'd drive up to my grandparents and we'd spend the whole day driving around to all of the different bazaars.

A Weekend at Colorado Bend State Park

Weekend at Colorado Bend State Park

Doesn't it feel good to check things off your bucket list??  Neil has been wanting to go to Colorado Bend State Park for years and we finally went!! We definitely needed a little break from all of our home renovations....and this was the perfect little get away!!

Colorado Bend State Park is about 2 hours from Austin, 3 hours from Dallas/Fort Worth, and 2.5 hours from San Antonio. Definitely close enough for a weekend trip!! Unfortunately it's in the middle of all of the major cities...which is one of the reasons why it's so popular!! It frequently reaches maximum capacity so be sure to book your camping reservations early!! If you're just wanting to visit for the day, then I'd recommend booking a "Save the Day Pass"!! You'd hate to drive out there and it be full!!

Once you get to the park, you have quite the selection of fun activities...keep reading for more info on park activities.

Blueberry Cookies


The blueberry recipes continue...I mean when you pick 8 pounds of blueberries you have a lot of things to make!! We got this recipe from Elfie...I don't know how to describe Elfie...I guess you could say she's like my sister's adopted grandma (not to be confused with my adopted grandma-Aunt Hilda). They didn't really adopt us...they're just nice ladies from church that would spend time with us and teach us about life. Anyway....Elfie gave us this recipe several years ago...and it's amazing!!
