Hello Bloggers!

Guess what!?!? It SNOWED! IN Central Texas yesterday! I never thought I'd see the day!
We will see lots more as we travel to Wisconsin in a week. It will be a long drive with Gracie AND Patches, hopefully they'll settle down after a couple minutes.
I am very tired for some reason, maybe because of the fact it only got up to 45 degrees today!
School awaits in manana,
Hasta La Vista, Bloggers!

Oh dear!

Our Church had Bethlehem Village in the Christmas Stroll today. It went great! J is an angel, literally :D The Mary and Joseph's were great, all the booths looked did the costumes that the ladies spent SOOOO much time on!
My Dad turned the heat on today! It's only 50's, but he was cold!
J and I got Down Alternative comforters for 18 dollars at Kohls yesterday! They are normally 100 dollars!!
I have to babysit from 6-12 tonight!! It'll be a long night, but I'll get some Christmas presents done, hopefully!

Amazing Coffee, people!

Well...IE8 Beta didn't work so well with my Spanish, I'll have to wait for a while to use that. :( Oh well.
J and I found this amazing coffee recipe. We've made it twice already and we only got the recipe yesterday!
Giada de Laurentiis made it. I've already pretty much memorized the recipe :D

Spiced Americanos with Cinnamon Whipped Cream

1/2 cup water
1 cup sugar (it's right people, just try it)
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup very hot water
1 cup espresso (very strong coffee)

Heat the water and sugar until it comes to a boil. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Let it cool for a minute or two before you add the ginger, allspice and cinnamon. Once you have the simple syrup all done, add the water and coffee.
Pour into mugs and add whipped cream to the top. Sprinkle with cinnamon if desired.
AMAZING! You gotta try it! ;)
