Tip- Use your bone folder on the backside of the Copper Foil Sheet to make it easier to wrap around the Hershey Nugget.

I didn’t become a coffee drinker until last year.  Not sure how I made it through college without it.  My very favorite coffee is Kona Vanilla Macadamia Nut.  My favorite coffee shop is Mahalo’s Coffee shop in West Des Moines, IA.  It’s a Hawaiian themed coffee shop that is adorable and smells so good.  They make doughnuts in the shop, hence the good smell, but I don’t actually eat them.  If you live in the Des Moines area, I’d love to meet you at Mahalo’s.  Are you a coffee drinker?  What’s your favorite?

These Coffee Cups Framelits make these cards fun and easy to make.

I love giving gift cards to the kid’s high school teachers because they totally don’t expect it! (Plus they deserve it!)

Well, we put the “W” flag away for the winter.  The Chicago Cubs had a good run and we look forward to next year!

Steve’s Birthday is this week, so our sweet Ryan came home from college to rake leaves and go to a movie with Steve.  He loves having Ryan as his “wing man.”  We don’t do much with presents, but I bought something for Steve three months ago and hid it.  The best part is, I remembered I had done that and actually found it and wrapped it up this weekend.  The reason I’m a little shocked the present thing worked out, is because I do have some memory difficulties.  I had cottage cheese before going to church and when we got back home, Steve found this in the cabinet.

LOL  OK, so I meant to put it in the refrigerator.  🙂

On a more positive note, I’ve been making roast beef in the crock pot once a week.  Since Ryan was coming home, I made this on Sunday.  It’s chuck roast cooked on low in the crock pot all day, with caramelized onions, havarti cheese on sour dough bread.  Everyone was pretty much in tummy heaven.  I think they’ll keep me around for awhile longer, even though I occasionally store the cottage cheese in the cupboard!

Please leave a comment at the top of this post.  I’d love to hear your favorite coffee or if you’d like to tell me I’m not the only one with memory issues!

Here’s Grandpa Harold’s Gift Card Holder 80th Birthday card.  After it was done, I wished I had put sequins in the numbers.

When I made my niece, Lindsay’s, graduation card, I remembered the sequins, so this is a shaker card.

Keegan had his Fall vocal concert the other night.  He was telling us we didn’t need to go, but then five minutes before the concert started he was texting us, telling us we were going to be late.  Steve assured him we were in our seats already.  I’m glad he really does care, and I wouldn’t miss any chance to hear Keegan sing. Anyway, can you see my tall Keegan in the center of the back row?

I was looking through our pictures from this summer and this picture made me smile.  I love watching Steve participate in his triathlons except the swimming portion.  During the swimming they all look alike and I have no idea where he is. At this triathlon he was getting ready to swim and I noticed he was the only man that was given a pink swim cap. (Yep, he was given a women’s cap by mistake.)  At least I could pick him out of the crowd and watch him do the entire swim race.  I now have a plan for next year’s triathlons. 🙂
