A while ago we bought some Kirkland’s pulled pork from Costco (if you haven’t tried it yet, you NEED TO. It’s seriously life changing). To go with it, Isaac bought three different kinds of barbecue sauce. Then we had a potluck at church so I bought more pork and more sauce at Costco to make […]

Monday was the first day of spring, and I am SO excited that my (second) favorite season is here. I think fall still holds first place in my heart, but not by much! We didn’t have a super cold winter here in Texas- it was 70 degrees on Christmas day- which I am both grateful for, and […]
