Some Favorite Things & The Best $2.99 at IKEA

I haven't posted here in a bit.  Time flies.  I do too much to keep up.  And I don't even have a paying job. 

But at least I'm paid in hugs and kisses from two of my favorite little people!

I love those kids.  They both wore their hats that I crocheted them to the bus stop today.  Chewy has an owl.  Scooter requested an angry bird.  I tried.  That's all I can say in my defense.  I didn't have a pattern for that one. 

I get to love on my little ones this weekend!  We're having a Mommy & Kid weekend!  Daddy is off for a big boy's weekend.  Scooter can't wait until he's big enough to join him.

And here's my little girl with her bear.  I was trying to get some photos of her loving on her bear, but it didn't work out.  Oh well.  I probably already have tons of photos of her with her beloved bear.  And for those in the know....she's still got her first loose tooth stuck in her mouth.  The tooth fairy is coming shortly....hopefully.

And I needed a pick-me up today.  Pumpkin Spice coffee made with half and half, a sprinkle of cinnamon, a sprinkle of nutmeg, Dunkin Donuts ground coffee, and my favorite $2.99 blender from IKEA.  And yes, that's my favorite little orange sticker on the coffee.

Seriously, this $2.99 tool really works.  It's awesome.  I put in some half and half and warm it up for 30 seconds in the microwave.  Then I sprinkle on cinnamon and nutmeg.

Then I give that baby a whirl for about 15 seconds.

It really frothes the milk.  I also use it in the kids' hot cocoa on our Hot Cocoa Friday Mornings.  It makes frothy cocoa! 

Then I make the coffee in my Keurig brewer.  I have one of those contraptions to use your own ground coffee.

And then I have my afternoon pick-me up.  I usually have coffee in the morning, but about once a week I have a cup in the afternoon.  Especially after dealing with allergies, swimming 3000 yards, doing my once every 2 weeks grocery shopping, and running errands for my neighbor all in one day.  Not to mention laundry, dishes, and a bazillion other things.  I'm pooped. Pumpkin Spice to the rescue.  Now I just need my little ones to come home and bring another smile to my face!

Do you have a favorite coffee?  Or some other favorite thing to pick up up!
