Hello. 
Forgive the lack of blog post.

Soon I'll be getting a new camera! I'm very excited about that. 
My Craft room is FINALLY organized and ready!
I want to start with a fresh look, ideas, and lots of new projects.

Homemade fraps recipe!


 

what you'll need & suggestions you could make.
*One cup-International delight vanilla iced coffee.  
This product is new. I bought it to try it and I liked it but it's too creamy for "iced coffee". 
The pastry chef in me thought it would make a great base for fraps. Guess what? it does!
*1/4 cup-Half & Half.
or
(Fat free Half & Half)
*1/4 cup -Smuckers Caramel sundae syrup
or
(Sugar free Smuckers caramel sundae syrup)
*Topping-Whipped cream
or
(Fat free whipped cream)
*One packet-Nescafe instant coffee
(dissolve in one table spoon of warm water)
or
(a shot of espresso) 
*Add desired ice and blend.
Serve it in your favorite cup, add some whip, drizzle some delicious caramel 
and....
(This makes 2 servings, depending on cup size)

If you try it, tag me on Instagram @dearwhimsy.
I would love to see it!

My first time in Georgia!


Just kidding.
My brother is not for sale! :)

For Josh's Spring break we decided to visit my brother in Georgia.
It was my first time going.
He moved to Roswell Georgia about 2 years ago with his partner.
He's been bribing me to come visit by telling me
he's going to take me to a place where I can hand feed deers.
As soon as he said that I was sold!
( duh! )
He's a manager at Total Wine and he gave me some wine wood boxes.
I'm thinking I'll make them into night stands.
That should be a fun project.
What ever I decide to do with them, I'll make sure I share it with you.
If you have any inspiration, send it my way!
Here we are the Yellow River Ranch
This was the BEST!!!
I wish I could have a deer as a pet :)
They were being a little shy but once they saw we had food they just walked over to us.
oh and just incase you're wondering,
I am married to the bunny whisperer.
ah! it was so dreamy to do this.
(Thank you, brudder)
This is us at the Roswell Mill bridge.
It was my favorite! So beautiful and peaceful.


My brother treated us to Chicken and Waffles at Gladys Knight.
We waited an hour to be seated.
It was so worth it.
Everything was so delicious!
I kept saying,
"This is so bad for you but so good!" haha
So if you're on a diet and you want a good cheat day, go 'treat yo self' at Gladys!
This is apple.
My baby. She was so well behaved in the car.
She's 4 years old and she's a terrier poodle.
Just incase you were about to ask :)

We loved Georgia!
My brother was trying to talk us into moving there.
We didn't hate the idea but we're not ready to make that kind of change right now.
We love our warm sunny Florida state!
We also went to the Georgia Aquarium.
I didnt take any fun pictures because it was SO crowded!
it was insane. It was awesome but so crowded!
Our trip was super great and we made some pretty good memories.


updates*
I might be getting my camera fixed soon!
Hopefully that will help me keep up with the blog.
Life has been go-go non stop.
My grandmother just moved to Spring Hill Fl from Puerto Rico.
So excited to have a grandparent around.
I'm making plans to design my craft room.
It's been over whelming to have a whole room full of materials.
I want to start working on some new projects so bad but I have to get organized.
I've been on a break.
Married life is wonderful. I love every minute of it.
It's definitely something new and we're just learning to get the hang of things and trying to see how things will work with our schedules.
I guess that's it for now :)

11. What is one bit of marriage &/or parenting advice you would give to other women?
I've only been married for 3 months, I'm no expert but,
I've lived/seen many marriages fail or close to failing.

I would have to say, Keep God in the center of your marriage. Pray together, Laugh together, Talk about your goals, encourage your dreams together. Remind each other how much you mean to each other. Reminisce about good times and when you first met. Always remember that it's GOD, YOU and HIM in this marriage and not other people. Make it a goal to make it different from what you've seen, what you've heard or been through. Husband and wife should be best friends.
It's not a competition against each other, you're a team! together you're stronger.
Don't believe what this world has to say about marriage.
I believe we've been lied to about so many things. This world has shifted our minds to think marriage is a negative thing.
Don't let anyone tell you it's a just the honeymoon phase, things change, just wait a few years.
Instead, pray for those people.
God created marriage to be the most beautiful experience.
Trust in him and live each day trying to honor God in everything you do together.
