Fourth of July Fun

Hope you guys enjoyed your Fourth of July! We kept it pretty low key this year because Julian had to work. We just had a small bbq at my sister in laws house and did s'mores and a couple fire works at night. It was nice for a change not having to drag back from a lake or river.

Enjoy your weekend!

Fab Kids- Juliana

About a month ago I was placing an order on Just Fab and when I finished my order a link for Fab kids popped up they were having a sale 2 of their outfits  for $29.99. I decided to give them a try I picked up this outfit for Juliana and another one for Jonathan (Ill do a separate post for his, he hasn't worn his yet) If you havent heard of Fab kids it is a subscription site and they bill you $29.99 or you can always choose more items. If you do not want to be charged you just have to skip that month by the 5th of every month. I was a little skeptical, I really thought the material was going to be very flimsy and fall apart after the first wash. Its already been through two washes and still in good condition as for the sizes Juliana is a 2t-3t, this outfit I ordered was 3t and as you can see fits her a little big. I would say I was pretty satisfied with Julianas

Happy 1st of July

Blue Maxi

Top (which is actually a maxi dress I tucked under) Target
Maxi skirt: F21 (2yrs ago)
Clutch : Crossroads
Shoes: Just Fab

Hi everyone so this was an outfit I wore on my birthday June 25th. Finally i'm 28, i'm pretty exited for what this next year might have in store for me and my family. I have really been wanting to do outfit posts of myself for a while but i'm quite shy taking pictures out in public. So now that we have a big backyard ill start taking pictures out there slowly transitioning to taking pictures out in public where I would like. I bought this skirt a while ago, but this is maybe the third time I wear it Julian hates it when I wear maxi dresses or skirts. He says I should just wear a sheet haha (men what do they know)

Have a great day!

We finally moved

Welcome to our house which in time we hope to turn into our home. We bought a 1950 3 bedroom two bath in sunny Sacramento, CA. Its a perfect starter home for our small family, we got really lucky it was one of the first homes we saw. We fell in love with the yard  and that it was  a corner home, we like a lot of out door space. We have a lot to do even though this house was flipped, the yard needs a lot of work its a blank space, the fence needs to be replaced, it needs central AC and heat and other small things. So we have our work cut out for us. We are sooo happy to finally be moved in right now i'm just unpacking organizing the stuff we brought from our apartment going through things we are going to keep, donate or throw away. Our first project will be to replace the fence on the side of the house and extend it a little.

Of course I will keep you guys updated on all our home projects.

The garage was turned into a master suit so we have two huge sheds in the back yard

Entry the entire house interior was painted a beige color on camera comes out kind of yellowish works for now, but we will eventually be painting the different rooms. Not sure what colors yet.

Lazy Buñuelos

Yesterday morning while making Jon's lunch, he comes up to me and says, "Mom by the way I need you to make something for my heritage presentation"  I said " Ok when is it" Jon "tomorrow" Of course it is. "What should I make" Jon "I don't know something mexican" Oh gosh just stop talking ill think of something. Last year I made mini Flan cups they were a hit, but he had the same teacher again this year I decided I should probably make something different. I was talking to my mother in law and she said to try to make Buñuelos, I said that sounds good how do you make them.
Her version was 3 hour prep time, this mom did not have time for that I didn't get off work until 6 and still had to go to the grocery store to pick up some things. So I took a short cut and bought flour tortillas to fry, instead of making the dough from scratch and having it dry for 3 hours.

Recipe (I pretty much just eye balled everything, I try to pretend i'm a cool cook that way)
1 1/2c Coconut oil ( That's what I had, i'm sure any oil would be fine)
1c Sugar
1tbs Cinnamon ( A good chance I used more)
Flour tortillas

Start by heating the oil in a medium skillet on high heat.While that's heating up I started to cut the flour tortillas into triangles until I had about 35 triangles. Of course you can cut as many as you'd like,  Jon has 30 kids in his class the five extra were for any mistakes and tasting.
Time for the cinnamon sugar just combine the cinnamon and sugar (smells amazing). Than I dropped the triangle two at a time into the oil turning down the heat to medium. It takes about 10-15 seconds to bubble up the tortilla than I remove and immediately toss them into the cinnamon sugar give them a little shake to remove any excess sugar and place them on a plate (I try very hard not to eat one) and continue this until your all done.Enjoy! 

Jon said they were a hit yay!!!!
