Memorial Day Weekend 2020

Our MDW was fun. We did a lot of things outdoors and were able to actually have a semi-normal weekend. Our Starbucks is officially open to the public, but you're not able to actually go inside to relax. You walk in, order and have to leave. But! It's a start and we were so excited about it that we went inside to order. I later took the girls to a big open field to run free and collect pine cones. (Pine cone craft in the making!) We also went on a big family trip to the lake with C. Went on the boat and let the kids have fun in the sun while searching for little baby tadpoles.
It was a great weekend!

Tres Leches Cake

Hey y'all! So, I have never made this cake before because I'v always been intimidated by the recipe. It takes an entire day and realistically, as a mom when I crave something, I usually want it to be quick and done to eat that same day. This recipe is super kid-friendly and your kiddos can even help out as well! The girls had a blast helping me out. I have the photos in order for you to follow along, if you aren't a visual learner, scroll all the way down and you'll find the recipe there! xo

Ingredients: Whipped Cream, White Cake box, Coconut Milk 13.5 oz, 
Cream of Coconut 15oz, Sweetened Condensed Milk 14oz, Evaporated Milk 12oz

Make the boxed cake as the directions say.

Mix all wet ingredients together.

Once the cake is finished and out of the oven, grab skewers and poke holes in the cake. 
(I made two 8x8 cakes instead of one big 9x13)

Slowly pour your wet ingredients onto the cake so that it goes down into the holes. But remember, do this SLOW.

Lastly, cover with foil and place in the fridge over night.
And you're done! Enjoy with whipped cream and fruit on top. SO GOOD! 

Ingredients:
Whipped Cream
- 1 box of white cake mix

(Wet Ingredients)
- Coconut Milk 13.5 oz
- Cream of Coconut 15oz
- Sweetened Condensed Milk 14oz 
- Evaporated Milk 12oz

Directions:
1. Make the cake as the directions call on the box. I made two 8x8 pans, but you can make one big one if you'd like.
2. Mix all the wet ingredients together. 
3. Once the cake is done and slightly cooled, start poking as many holes as you can into the cake. Be sure to not tear the cake. 
4. SLOWLY pour the wet ingredients on top of the cake, making sure not to go too quickly. Going fast will cause the wet ingredients to pour over the sides of the cake and puddle completely. Do this slow, so it gets into the holes. 
5. Cover with foil and let it sit in the fridge for 12-24 hours. (I did 8 and it was okay, should have waited longer)
6. Slice and serve with whipped cream and fruit on top! Enjoy.

xoxo Love, B

Popcorn Snack with Mikaela


When I have a moment alone with one of the kids, I always try to make the best of it. I feel like one-on-one time is so important for them. Not only do you give them 100% of your undivided attention, but you're able to really just focus on them and not share your love with anyone else for just a tiny bit. My love language is quality time, and I love sharing it! 
Mikaela and I decided to have a movie night together and make a fun yummy snack with all of her favorite things. 
Now, take a look and you'll see how easy it is to make! 

Ingredients needed: 
Popcorn, White & Dark Chocolate, Candy, Marshmallows, Dried Fruit, and Sprinkles. 
But really, any of your favorite snacks work. I've used pretzels, beef jerky, cheese cubes (if you wanna make it savory) and many more! Here is another one I usually make for Easter. 

Lay out your popcorn first, then layer the rest of the ingredients! 





Let the melted chocolate cool and after it hardens break it up into pieces and put them in a bowl. 
DIG IN!

xoxo, B
