Gettin' Cozy and Holiday Ready

This week, temperatures dropped around the country. Here in Washington State, it's been reaching freezing at night, and we've been waking to dark mornings and frost covered roofs. Wouldn't you know, this is the week our heater broke? We spent several days huddling around space heaters and fire places, under layers of snuggly blankets, fuzzy sherpas, and cozy beanies.

Our new favorite couch blanket is from CC. It's a cute checked blanket (you choose white/black, red/black, green/black), generously sized, sherpa backed piece of snuggle heaven! We think it would make a great holiday gift--for you and your loved ones!

We drank a fair amount of hot chocolate this week, too! Our favorite hot chocolate is from Starbucks. We all use our different favorite milks...I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk...The lactose free kids use Lactaid 2%...One daughter uses Soy Milk...It works well with all of them! Mix 6-8 oz of warm milk and 2 tablespoons of hot cocoa...To taste. My kids love it topped with whipped cream or way too many marshmallows.
Since the holidays are coming, we wanted to add a little festive twist to our hot chocolate, so we stirred our concoctions with candy canes to add a little peppermint sweetness. For the grown ups, we added an ounce of Peppermint Schnapps before stirring and garnishing with candy canes for a little extra, uuuummm, warmth! Our Peppermint Hot Chocolate is not only super tasty, it looks cute enough to serve at a holiday party...When we're able to host those again, of course!
