When Did You Get Here?

hellodecI can’t believe December is here! It seriously snuck up on me and my goodness–this is the last month in 2013! I’m looking forward to so many things in the upcoming weeks–Holiday cheer, concerts, The Chipmunks Christmas Carols (Yes, I still love them), peppermint mocha coffee, peppermint bark, and baking my favorite sweet eats like peppermint bark fudge, found here. I’m sure you see a trend here. The older I get, the more I appreciate this time of year. I get to spend time with family, go on a random Starbuck’s run for a Gingerbread Latte, or just relax in my Snuggie by the fireplace.

snowmanI found this cute, little mug at the Dollar Tree to go with my Mocha Mint Cappuccino. Cheers to the Holiday Season!

Hello December! Coffee Lovers

What an exciting time of year, especially for coffee lovers! I love flavored coffee so I was super excited when I found out that the Holiday Edition — K-cups (and coffee) were out for the season.

Took a trip to Bed, Bath, & Beyond and they had the Holiday Edition pack with: Golden French Toast, Spicy Egg Nog, and Gingerbread. I don’t have a favorite just yet, but I can’t wait to try them all. I purchased Pumpkin Spice back before Thanksgiving and I like those! Picking up some Mocha Mint Cappuccino today, because I absolutely love the Peppermint Mocha flavor!

You can’t forget to pick up your tin of Danish butter cookies during holiday season! I remember these from when I was a little girl. My Gran Gran use to keep these around. I found them last year after not having them for almost two decades and ’bout went into a state of shock! lol

Share with me your favorite holiday coffee or drink!

Happy Holidays!

Santa Came Early!

It is holiday season — one of my favorite times of the year! Christmas decorations, family time, peppermint bark, egg nog (Evan Williams is my fave), fruit cake, and the list goes on! I know I’ve been an “awful good girl”, but what I did not know is that Santa was going to visit me early! Glad I baked that cake (instead of cookies lol). My hubby surprised me with my very first gift — one of the best gifts ever!!! I am now officially #TeamiPad!!! I absolutely love, love, love it!

Santa didn’t stop there…I decided to suit up and surprise my Mom!

…a new Keurig!!! I was totally planning on getting her one for Christmas, but since her other coffee pot broke…I decided to go ahead and give it to her. She was ecstatic! Welcome to the wonderful world of K-cups Mom!
