Five of my favorite things from this week! To join in, click on the Friday Fave 5 button. Come on! It’s fun!
I feature here a perk of teaching. It’s a perfectly delicious pumpkin roll. A family from the school where I teach gave me this homemade happiness. This morning I sliced it and put it in my toaster oven. Oh. My. Gravy. Was it good! A sweet start to my morning…thanks sweet family for thinking of me at Christmas!
Along with the slice of pumpkin roll, I enjoyed another cup of my new favorite coffee – Gloria Jean’s Ginger Snap! Oh Snap
…I hope it’s not offered only during the Christmas season. See the cute ornaments on the label?
We use a Keurig coffee maker. If you need a new coffee maker, you really should consider a Keurig! Oh Keurig Coffee People…I need to be your spokesperson. Seriously. If you’re reading this…holl~ah!
These are just sooooo cute! I picked these up from Gap Kids
for my nieces. They’re striped on one side, polka-dot on the other and have fringed ends. I added these to a couple of mini bags from Vera Bradley and voila! Cute City for Christmas!
(No peeking, H, W & K! Get off my blog!)
Earlier this week while driving TechSon home from school, we stopped at Frida’s Cafe & Bakery
. I picked out a few goodies. These were all European baked goods which, turns out, TechSon and Skate~Boy don’t much care for. There was nary a chocolate chip nor sugar cookie in the bunch! So they were MINE, all MINE
…(insert creepy laugh here). One Fine Man & Guitar Girl had a few nibbles, too. When they could find where I hid the box…
Check out the cookies on the top right. They are called Mediterranean Maccaroons
. ‘Never had them before but I will no longer be a stranger to the call of their crunchy, chewy, coconuttiness. Enough said.
game that Skate~Boy and I have been trying to finish lo these past 4 days! We take lots of breaks. ‘Still fun though. Look how bad
we are with our 3 and 4 letter words! As there are only 3 tiles left in the bag, we can probably knock this out in an hour. Or two. Or three.
