I'll Be Darned! I won something!

There's this really cool chick, Sondre Lyn, that has a wonderful (and newly made over) blog. I've been reading her blog for as long as I've had my own! She's a step ahead of me in life and helps me keep perspective on the big picture, as far as my kids go.

Sondre Lyn recently won a blog makeover by Casey at The Ever Changing Life of a Military Life. To celebrate, she had a giveaway. She is a HUGE coffee fan and she decided to give away one of her favorite things. Well, miracle of all miracles...I WON!!!

I came home to find this sitting on my front porch...


I opened it up and discovered this...


Intrigued by the odd looking little coffee machine, I opened it up and did something I rarely do...I read the directions. I didn't want to mess up such a nice gift!


As I delved further into the box, I found this...a variety pack of coffee.


Just this was enough to make me exceedingly happy. It was so far off the cute chart! Don't you think?


Of course when I have something neat, I must share with Birdie because she's my unbiological sister and all. She agrees about the cuteness of this little coffee container. And just for the record, I made this same face when I saw this packaging, but luckily I had the camera. (Sorry, Birdie, but this photo sooo captures the moment that I couldn't leave it out. I'm sure you can figure out someway to get me back!)


Back to the machine...having read the directions, I knew the first thing to do was fill this part with water!


Then put a coffee mug under the spout. This is my all time favorite cup. Birdie gave it to me. It makes me smile like the donut coffee.


Next, you open this top part.


Then, you face the hard decision of which of the sweet, little, precious coffees to use.


You stick it in here.


Then you close the top back down.




And then you have to choose whether you want a big cup of coffee or a little cup of coffee.


Of course I went for the big daddy cup. Then the magic happened! Oh baby!


I couldn't wait to get my hands on it.


It smelled delish and tasted divine!


In conclusion, I'd like to say THANK YOU to Sondre Lyn for introducing me to my new favorite thing! You rock and so does the Kuerig!!!!

Everyone go see Sondre Lyn's site. It's really pretty and she's pretty fun! Now, I better get over to the Keurig site and order myself some more of those cute little coffee babies before I run out! I hear they have hot cocoa and tea, too!

Isn't it always special when God gives us something unexpected just because He knows we will love it?

PS. I think I might need to spend some time in front of the mirror practicing facial expressions. :)
