Christmas movies

20121211-190527.jpgChristmas movies… we all have our favorites, don’t we? Every year I like to watch Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas [cartoon version of COURSE], The Year Without a Santa Claus, and Elf! Those are my must-sees! We also watch A Christmas Carol every year as a family on Christmas Eve! It’s become a traditional… we get on our new Christmas Eve pajamas, cuddle under blankets, turn off all the lights, and watch Ebeneezer Scrooge go through the longest night of his life to realize the true meaning of Christmas and love.

What are some movies you guys like to watch every year? Any movie traditions on your end?

Morning Ritual

Mitch thought it might be fun to take photos of my morning coffee ritual with my delightful best friend espresso machine.

First things first… I prep the milk.

Then I place the milk in the microwave for 2 minutes and measure out my espresso with the scoop!

While waiting for the milk to reach it’s timer, I start the espresso machine and watch it pour out my glorious two shots!

Afterwards, I mix this with my chocolate and Starbucks vanilla syrup and I’m ready to go!
