An Ode to Caffeine

Caffeine, what a dream. In my world, you reign supreme!

Ok, that's all I got. You get my drift LOL!

Just to think, about 8 years ago I wouldn't dream of loving coffee as much as I do now. Now, I am sick if I can't have it!

I'm a drink hot coffee even when it's 90 degrees outside kind of girl too. I respect the iced varieties and cold brew comes in a very close second. But give me my coffee piping hot!

It doesn't help that I work with other coffee addicts either. Anything is an excuse for a coffee break!

I'm learning to make it better on my own so I don't rely heavily on coffee shops. Good coffee ain't cheap!

I've fallen in love with frothing my own milk! Almond milk froths beautifully! It's not as creamy as dairy milk, but it gets the job done.

My favorite new combo is Vanilla Honey, preferably in a latte (thanks for getting me hooked Amy).

I use a Keurig at home to make my coffee. I can't justify making an entire pot and I'm the only one drinking it. I try not to be wasteful.

I start by adding honey (I like raw honey) and vanilla to a mug. Then add some milk (milk of your choice). You may want to add sugar too if you like it sweeter. The amount of milk depends on how you like your coffee. Heat the mug in the microwave (or you can warm the contents in a sauce pan on the stove). Once it's warm, froth it! I brew my coffee directly into my frothed milk. But you can froth it in a frothing pitcher and pour it over and make fancy designs. I'm not that fancy...yet.

When done in the right combination, it will taste like a marshmallow! I don't measure anything, I just let my mood determine how much to make. Be mindful of your mug size because the foam makes the milk expand and you still want room for your coffee! Drink the good stuff too, cheap coffee tastes, well, cheap! I like Marley Coffee (it's hard to find locally) and M Cafe (McDonald's brand) is becoming a favorite. Green Mountain and Folgers have some good varieties too.

I purchased my frother from a brick and mortar Ikea, but it's the same as the one linked. If you are close to an Ikea, go grab one!

I'll link to some products below (I'll earn a small commission if you purchase through these links)

How do you like your coffee?


Peace, Love and Coffee!!

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks! Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash! I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one. Here are what this product c

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh. She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes... After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard! She really enjoys Dial W

Baby Magic is Here! My Birth Story

Princesses get their way. And true to form, my little princess decided that she, and only she would be in control of when she arrived. Forget about me or the doctors trying to schedule ANYTHING! **This is a long post that goes into detail. Read at your own risk.** On Sunday, July scratch that. On Saturday, July 20th, I was having cramps. They weren't too painful and were coming only about once every hour. Honestly, I thought I had gas. I had a good bit of visitors that day and told everybody that I felt like I was going to have the baby soon. I was already on bed rest and wasn't doing much. Thanks to some awesome friends, I had enough food that all I had to do was warm it and eat it. After all of the company left, I really just wanted to lie down. So I went to bed. I was awakened maybe 3 times during the night with these "cramps." The next morning I got out of bed about 10:30am (late for me) and took a shower, hoping that the heat would soothe me.
