Mmmmmm...coffee....

So every morning I make myself a nice latte in our pretty little Keurig one-cup coffee maker. I have to - it's the only way I can function and, well, it's important for me to be able to function in the morning because I'm responsible for getting myself and Ish up and out of the house on time. So I make my coffee. With 2 Splendas. In my Vipers skull coffee mug. It's Matt's from his army days. I think the skull is kind of fitting for a coffee cup.

Anyways, Ish has been eyeballing my coffee mug for months. I tell him he can't have any because it's "hot" - he repeats "hot" and usually walks away, defeated. This makes me feel bad. So we have a new morning ritual - I make my coffee in my army skull mug and young Ish gets some water in his blue dolphin Matthew mug that grandma bought him in Atlantic City. And we both take sips and say "ahhhhh" and we go on our merry way.

And yes, that is a half-eaten super-size tub of Nutella from BJ's behind my skull mug. Mmmmm....Nutella....

What are you doing in my kitchen? Next time call so I can at least put a bra on.

My nutella is 3/4 empty and I WANT TO EAT THE WHOLE JAR WITH A SPOON, and that's why I'm on weight watchers now.

I have a kuerig too, and did you know they have one that brews *iced* coffee now? WANT! NEED!

my son is OBSESSED with my coffee mug. I let him touch the outside, so he can feel the warmth and say "thats for mamma"

What a great new morning routine! I love how little ones want to be just like their mommies and daddies!

My 9 month old desperately wants my coffee. He is also obsessed with beer bottles, wine, and the TV remote. All my favorite things. I think I'm going to enjoy The Ish. Thanks for visiting the owl!

Don't even get me started on Nutella!! I have searched for recipes online so I can have an excuse to buy it!! I cannot be trusted with Nutella, so I have banned myself from buying it, I will put it on everything!!

That sounds like a very sweet morning ritual! I really have to get some Nutella. I had it for the first time the other day and then I read about it on another blog. It's sending me messages!

Thanks for following me through blogflow. I'll be following you now too!
