Changing Tastes

As the seasons change my taste buds change too.  A staple to begin my day is a cup of coffee however, I've found that my basic black cup of coffee isn't what I want every morning.  It's interesting how what was once a daily routine becomes an 'I remember that' thought.  (Recently I surprised my husband with my shopping selection of Devil's Food Spread.  I hadn't eaten that in years but I saw it at the store and remembered how much I loved it when I was a child -  I just had to have it.)

Now that my coffee tastes seem to be changing on a daily basis I'm getting crafty with my offerings.  It seems that Keurig Coffee Makers are just about everywhere so I had to try one.  I absolutely love having a single serve coffee maker which makes my cravings so much easier to follow.  (It's the little things ;-> )

Having choices is truly a luxury when you think about it, and with the Keurig you have so many taste options.  I'm partial to the Green Mountain K-Cups right now. The Vanilla Caramel is delicious.  Green Mountain has a rich flavor which is more to my taste, I like strong coffee.  And here is something that surprised the heck out of me, my husband and I actually liked the Folgers K-Cups.  (I live in the Pacific Northwest, the birth place of Starbucks, so we don't talk much "Folgers" around here.)

Every morning, different coffee options.  What a treat. And for those times when caffeine isn't the best option, say after 2:00 in the afternoon for me, there are Celestial Seasonings K-cups available.  This is a perfect choice for my afternoons, or the evenings when I just need a little "Sleepytime" to help me relax for the night. Having a cup of tea has helped greatly in curbing my cravings of ice cream every night.  It's a tough one, but I'm working on it!

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

How to Find the Safest Gear for your Baby

Nothing compares to the joys of being a parent. Having a newborn in the family brings couples closer and makes the entire household more cheerful and interesting. But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards. To further help you in this endeavor, here are some useful tips for finding the safest gear for your baby as you go through various baby product guides:

Opt for a non-toxic gear. The first thing you need to check is the composition of the safety gear. What is the material made from? Is it non-toxic? Be sure that it is because babies have a strong tendency to put everything they see or touch in their mouths. It goes without saying that a safety gear that is made from toxic materials could poison your baby, in the long run, so be very careful about the safety gears you purchase.
Make sure it is sturdy. The …

Yes, I'm a Dork for the Grocery Outlet

So our neighborhood was notified that a Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market would be opening in the new year.  I can't tell you how thrilled I was to hear this!  And when I received my friendly Grocery Outlet postcard with my friendly notice of the friendly festivities for their Grand Opening I actually put it on my calendar.  I knew exactly where I was going to be on Saturday morning.

Whoo Hoo! There was a giant "Wheel - o - Bargains".  I spun and won a $1 off my purchase.  Oh man I can't tell you how happy I am when I get money off my purchase.  yeah baby.  We were one of the first 1000 customer's so my husband and I received free Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market reusable bags!  (Rob was so excited.  Yes, he can be a dork sometimes too.)

What is it about this place?  Most of the items are things that I've never heard of, or have any interest in, however I am drawn to it like a kid to a candy store.  (Or better yet, like a wine lovin' mom who's found some…
