Satisfyingly Simple

Ghoulddd morning!  I started saying “ghoulddd morning” around Halloween and it’s kinda stuck…  Just go with it [ha]!  This morning I woke up feeling a little funky so I wasn’t in the mood to whip out any pots or pans, or to use any appliances.  Breakfast was satisfyingly simple…

an apple, Greek yogurt with pumpkin pie spice, and cereal

Cheerios, Kashi Go Lean, and Peanut Butter Puffins

This morning I’m on a mission to find a new coffee maker and make a purchase.  Thank you to all y’all who provided me with some insight regarding my coffee/espresso combo machine vs. Keuirg debate!  But…  I’m still undecided- I like the idea of making a cappuccino at home [I love frothy milk!], but I’m also enticed by the Keurig’s ease and quickness…



The rest of my day should be fun and relaxing.  I’m planning to: finish writing my Christmas thank-you’s, start reading “House Rules” by Jodi Picoult, get my sweat on at the gym, and meet a girlfriend at the mall to shop and/ or see a movie…

“Wishing You A Wonderful Holiday Season”

Oh, and make hamburgers for dinner [as requested by my Dear]…  BEEF, it’s whats for dinner!

    You should check out the Nespresso brand. You can make coffee, espresso, and foamed milk. 🙂

    Keurig’s are nice and easy, but the regular “old fashioned” espresso makers are awesome!

      William Sonoma also sells the Nespresso machines and I always pick up a free sample espresso when I stop in 😛 I’d love one of those machines but they’re pricy- maybe it’ll make it onto my wedding registry? A girl can dream!

  2. I have a Keurig and LOVE it!!! Makes my mornings so easy and caffeinated 🙂 That DJ Earworm mashup is legit, I’ve been listening to it over the past few days and just can’t seem to get enough!

      I think I’m gonna get a Keurig and buy a handheld frother… The biggest reason why I wanted a cappuccino maker was cause of the frother 😛

  3. House Rules is SUCH a good book! But I basically like anything written by Jodi Picoult. You’ll have to let me know what you think!

Whatcha think?
