Holiday fun this way

My adoration of coffee has been a part of my life since drinking my first latte while studying for the SAT tests in high school. After that, Matt and I hosted our cocktail hour as a coffee hour and completely took over the local Starbucks with 150 wedding guests. You could say coffee has been a huge part of my every day for some time.

As I’ve gotten older it’s been made more often at home than not. I’ve been waiting for a product to allow me to enjoy my favorite lattes at home and am so excited that Starbucks® Caffé Latte K-Cup® pods have brought my favorite flavors of mocha, caramel and vanilla home to enjoy.

It may sound silly, but I’ve found that stopping and creating a small celebration moment in the middle of the day does wonders for my joy and happiness. I often look for occasions to make an everyday moment a little more of a celebration. One fun and easy way I’ve found –  a sip and enjoy a latte with whip cream and sprinkles!

The mocha latte is such a great pick-me-up for an afternoon that seems to be dragging on and throwing sprinkles on top makes it instantly seem like a party. There is always a reason to celebrate (even today!) and taking a couple minutes to create a festive drink in the middle of the afternoon can give you that luxurious feeling for the rest of the day. The Starbucks® Caffé Latte K-Cup® pods make this easy to do.

After my mocha latte has been made, I love to sit for a minute and write down 5-6 things I am grateful for (one of which will obviously be sprinkles!). It is a habit I started while in the midst of a discouraging season last year and it has served me so well. Whether you are feeling down about your job, last night’s election, the kids being crazy, or all those to-dos coming at you this week – sitting down for a tiny celebration and remembering a few specific things in your life that you are grateful for will quickly give you a reason to celebrate.

Sparkling Spider Cocktail

Since it’s almost Halloween a sparkling cocktail filled with glittered spiders seems just about the right thing to serve! I am gushing over this idea and I served it at a dinner party the other night and everyone was equally as grossed out and they were impressed. :) That is definitely a Halloween planning win. The […]

Rainbow Jack-O-Lantern Soda Bar

If you’ve been following along for any length of time you’ll know I love Halloween without the spook and gore. It’s a holiday I quickly got hooked on all over again after having kids. I think Halloween should be celebrated just as colorful and bright as any other time of the year. Because rainbows and unicorns are […]
