The Little Things

Usually it's the little things that make a difference in how my day is going. Two of the small luxuries that I love? Great drinks and good music.

Great Drinks
Something about that little green logo makes my morning brighter, but my wallet lighter. The latter of those results necessitated learning to make my beloved macchiato at home and I have a delicious copycat worked up. Put it in a cup with a straw and it's just about perfect (minus the $4 fee, of course).
Macchiato Knock Off
1 cup ice
2 tsp vanilla syrup
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk 
(or 1/2 cup skim milk)
6 oz cold brewed coffee
(or two shots of espresso)
Caramel sauce
Layer first four ingredients in a 16oz cup (with straw) and drizzle with caramel sauce. Easy peasy. 

Good Music
I utilize spare bits of my time to compile and edit playlists on Grooveshark, A) because music is an essential part of my daily life and B) because I think exposing Jr to music is important. Currently I'm on a Boyce Avenue kick - specifically their covers which are, by and large, absolutely wonderful.

Starting up the business again, discovering it's much more difficult to do with a baby.

6) Everyday

My five-minute-face routine.

7) Eat
This was reserved for a picture of my very first Thanksgiving turkey, but I forgot to get a picture before it was devoured. I'm still miffed about this - it really was picture perfect.

8) Project

Starbucks has a holiday punch card? Challenge accepted!

9) Habit

I probably shouldn't let it be a habit, but holding Jr for a nap is so precious I can't resist.

Jr's first reaction to peekaboo.
