{Virtual Coffee}

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

Happy Tuesday. 
Thank you so much for joining me for coffee this week.
I know it is the Holiday Season and everyone is busy and there is 
so much to be done and everyone's time is limited. So thanks for taking the time
 to stop here on Tuesdays because I just love that you come here for coffee, I really do.

So if we were really meeting for coffee today...

I would tell you that today called for a homemade mocha with whipped cream and
 lots of cinnamon. I love the cinnamon on top. Yum. I do have to say though,  I have been
drinking more tea lately as well. I love hot tea when it is absolutely freezing out, it really
 hits the spot and I just love a warm tea cup in my hands.
What are you having today?
 Oh and if you are a tea drinker, I'm taking suggestions.

I would tell you that we finally got snow, not a lot but a little. And I know I am going to be
eating my words all too soon, but I was kinda ready for it. Just kinda. I can't believe I just
said that out loud because I am not Winter's Biggest Fan. Not at all. Actually I think I would
 rather have the snow than the 50 mph winds, ice and no sun. I hate driving in the ice
 and the lack of sun = some serious depression around here.
What is the weather like where you are?

Speaking of snow and ice...you have to go check out this ice skating party.
It is the most ridiculous and coolest thing ever. Seriously. Who has time for these things?

The kids have been loving their Advent/Christmas countdown Calendar this year. They are so
 excited to see what is in the little bag (uhhh...when I remember) each morning. Usually it is a mini candy cane, Hershey's Kiss or some type of little piece of candy and an activity. Some of the activities have been; making popcorn and watching a Christmas movie, making hot chocolate with lots of marshmallows and sprinkles, writing letters to Santa and driving around to look at Christmas lights.

Oh man, I want to live here. Ahhh. One of my most favorite homes in a movie, ever. I want
 to go on holiday to England and stay in an adorable little English cottage just like this one.
How cool is this place? Sigh.
 Oh yeah,  and I'll take Jude Law, too.

If we were really meeting for coffee this morning I would tell you that
  Heather has her blog design shop up and running now. She designed my blog header
and buttons and she is just awesome with custom designs. If you or anyone you know is looking for a change you should go check out her shop, Heather is super creative and her prices are very
reasonable. You will love her work, I didn't even really tell her what I wanted and as soon
 as I saw my header I thought it was so "me". I got much love for Heather.

Well, there is much to be done around here so I should get going now.
Thanks so much for stopping by my little place today.
You can link up for coffee all week.


  1. We are aching for snow... it's dreary and getting cold again, but it was 50 and rainy the last two days :(
    I love love love your Advent calendar! I might have to snag that idea for next year :)

  2. Thanks for the hot drink. . .a tazo passion fruit tea would be lovely! If you like a fruity kind of tea:)

    I love the links you share. I always lurk around Kelli Hampton's sight now and that sight looks like a lurking kind of sight too!

    Thanks for sharing and yes, I would love that little cottage, maybe not with 5 kids but definately with Jude Law!

  3. Try Robioos tea - my favorite is Tazo's but any is good.

  4. We just took a tour of the Celestial Teas factory. I fell in love with their peppermint tea and their fast lane black tea. It has hints of coffee and cola in it. Yum!

  5. It is 60 degrees here in CA. I love the snowflakes on your window, it looks amazing, I have never seen snow that actually looked like snowflakes...more like big clusters. And I want some of that coffee YUM!

  6. i love the ice skating party and the holiday house. and your blog. a lot.


  7. I absolutely love your advent calendar idea. So simple to make. My kind of craft.

  8. Try passion tea by Tazo. Very aromatic! Perfect for a cold winter's afternoon.

    Dang girl, all those links here and there. I kept getting distracted from your post. lol! But I came back. Holy, ice skating party batman. LOVELY images, but BRRRRR!!!

    And you just jinxed yo'self. Here is some snow courtesy of this Michigan snow hater.

  9. If I could, I would share some of our snow with you. We were dumped on this weekend. 13 inches with more coming this week. But it is truly beautiful. And I'm not a winter person either. Thanks for the coffee today!

  10. Hi there, Just a quick note to let you know I LOVE your virtual coffee days. Each and every week I think, I am going to do this next week, I am, and then I just don't get to it. But I sure do enjoy reading yours! Cheers.

  11. I like a tea by Tazo called Lotus. It makes good hot and iced tea.

    I also like a classic Earl Grey. Revolution has awesome teas.

  12. Oh, and the weather? It was in the 50's the past two days, 60's today, and will be near 80 tomorrow. Then back to the 50's on Friday.

    Nice. Not.

  13. First the Eddie Vedder thing, now this. I am LITERALLY watching The Holiday as I read this. How funny is that? It's my favorite movie and I watch it many times a year. How I would Loooooove to live in that cottage ::sigh::

  14. Love your advent calendar idea!! So fun! and I love that movie too. And being in England for Christmas is on my bucket list (if I were to write one). I may check out Heather's site. Thanks for the tip :).

  15. Love the pictures of your Christmas decorations. Sounds like we're having the same weather you're having. And I agree 100% with your opinion of winter. :)
