Hey everyone! Is anyone else as anxious for Fall to get here as I am? I am literally jumping out of my skin to get started on my Fall decor -- truly DONE, DONE & DONE with this AZ summer! Now, I totally understand that many of you live where you have beautiful summers and wish to savor every last minute of it. We DO NOT!
Okay, enough moaning and groaning from me. Thought I'd share a little change & upgrade that we recently made in our kitchen. No, we did not paint anything, but we made
my our mornings a whole lot tastier.
Our old coffee pot, which we loved BTW, started leaking. I mean, the nerve, after 15 years of serving us our morning brew every single day.......leaking?
"Yay, let's get a Keurig," I
squealed said. Now, The Man, being the "thinker" and "weigher of options" in our duo, was not sure the Keurig was a good economical choice. So......we shopped and looked at all the options and FINALLY chose this BABY!
Yep, we've crossed over to the
dark side Keurig! We are now "k-cup people."
The Man was 100% convinced after his first cup-o-Joe.
I promptly ordered one of these from Amazon. Sorry about the quality of this photo, but I had to really wash it out in order to see all of this brown-on-brown going on.
Love that it has 3 individual drawers so I can divide up our faves.
This is our coffee station for right now, subject to change as we move into the holidays.
I simply placed my "must-haves" on this little spinner that I had & added some washi tape for color.
Two of my favorite Torani syrups!
My little frother is nestled in the back.
I'm not sure I ever showed you this little sign. It was a free printable (sorry, I cannot remember the source), and I just thought it was so perfect for this little spot.
Ahhhh.....VERY CUTE and reminds me of Fall!
Since we like the largest cup-size on the Keurig, I'm in serious need of some large mugs. Oh, please don't tell me I have to go shopping......heeheehee!
Now this little item came with our Keurig & is great, because I do love my flavored coffees from World Market. But........
We found these at Fry's Electronics (I know, they have a weird assortment of products), and they go right into the spot that a K-cup fits into. This entire set was less than $10 & works beautifully.
I popped everything, including my current favorite flavor of WM coffee, into this little container
that sits in the cabinet just below the coffee station.
We stopped at a Smart 'n Final yesterday, and these syrups were on sale for $4.98 each or $3.98 if you purchased 6. Cannot turn down a deal like that, so now I am well-stocked!
Well, now you have the entire scoop of our adventures in "K-cupland!" We are still in the process of narrowing down our faves. So far, we really like Tully's French Roast, Newman's Special Blend and Kirkland's Pacific Bold. If you use a Keurig, what are your favorite K-cup flavors or brands?
Before I wrap-up this post, I have a confession to make.
This happened yesterday.
The Man, sweetheart that he is, hauled my crates of Fall/Halloween/Thanksgiving decor in from the garage storage. It is much too hot in the garage, so I covered the beds in our guest room with sheets and started the process of sorting, discarding and playing! . I think I enjoy this part of it as much as the actual decorating.....well, maybe not! Anyway, are any of you getting the overwhelming urge to pull out some pumpkins and light a Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin candle? Be honest, no one will judge!
I thank you so much for stopping and hope everyone has a terrific week!
