From my home, to yours.

So I finally got in the holiday spirit and put up my Christmas Tree! Today was a cooler day in the Phoenix area and I couldn’t have been happier! So when I got home from work yesterday, I made a special pot of coffee and when out in our storage closet to get out the Christmas decorations! img_7746

Naturally I thought we needed some Candy Cane coffee to get some Holiday pep in our bodies! When it was brewing the aroma of peppermint filled our apartment and my heart leaped with joy! I just knew I wouldn’t be able to suffer fluffing my tree limb for limb without my Door County Coffee in my hand!

I fluffed and I fluffed and my tree came out so beautiful!

For the longest time, I had a tree with white lights and since my wonderful cat loved laying on the bottom layer branches the tree was ruined so my husband bought me a new tree. I told him I wanted one with the big colorful bulbs and honestly I love this tree so much more than my other one. I think white lights look timeless and look good with whatever decorations you put on them, but a colorful tree is just so much fun. What do like?

I will have to admit I am not really religious, I believe in a lot of things, but I love celebrating Christmas because it is the one time of year that we can take a break from our hectic lives and celebrate our love from our families and friends. It is the one time of year people are giving, I don’t mean by gifts, but just by showing kindness to others.

My mom gave me this ornament when I moved out and it is my favorite. I consider my tree a Peace tree, a symbol for kindness, love and celebration of our lives.

We do have stockings too, mainly to fill them with candy, actually to only fill them with candy.

And I can’t forget about Elroy, the packer Elf on the Shelf that hangs from our lamp, he’s making sure that we earn our candy 🙂

What are your Holiday traditions? Throughout the season I bake 12 types cookies, different candies and an assortment of sweet treats to share with all my friends. They are my favorite gift to give because I make them with love ❤

I love seeing what everyone’s trees look like because they are all unique to their family’s, so post a picture of your tree on this Facebook link and share how you like to decorate it!

I hope you are all having a good start to the holiday season, however you celebrate it!

Cheerful Hippie, signing off.

Productive Sunday.

Good afternoon Friends!

I worked a double shift Thursday, Friday and Saturday so I am so happy to be home and getting things done around the house. My brother-in-law got me a vacuum for my birthday and so I had a hay day cleaning all the base boards and air vents today! I also cleaned out my fridge, washed and folded 4 loads of laundry, went to the store to get stuff to make dinner and now that my apartment looks and smells clean I am about to crack down on some studying for my exam I have in the morning. Yes, I know you are wondering how I still have energy, but the answer is quite simple! I was drinking my Door County Coffee all day!

img_7556It’s truly such a good flavor and made my apartment smell like Christmas! I talked to my mom today and she says its super cold in Wisconsin and I told her my thermostat says that it is 82. I refuse to turn my AC back on because it’s the middle of November! That being said, I will sit on my couch and drink my Wisconsin coffee pretending that it is 40 degrees instead of 82. Do you live somewhere like me, and don’t get to really experience a “Fall” or “Winter”? Well, Door County Coffee is 30% off everything right now! So if you want to pretend that it is snowing outside like me and need help keeping your holiday spirit, Door County Coffee will send you a box full of magic to keep your spirits alive.

img_7433Good morning friends, its Friday! And I heard my first Hot Air Balloon this morning which means its going to be a good day! When the weather finally cools off every morning I will seriously JUMP out of my bed when I hear them turning on the gas to get heat going and go watch the balloons go right over our apartment. There will sometimes be over 7 of them right above my head. I have serious love for the Hot Air Balloons, I’ll have to tell you the story another time.

Most Fridays I work a double so I’m getting my coffee fix! And this morning I am drinking my favorite Door County Coffee from Wisconsin! The days here in Phoenix, AZ are still pretty warm so its nice having some holiday spirit in my cup. They always have a good selection around Christmas time and my ALL TIME FAVORITE is img_7445Gingerbread Spice Latte! What is kinda funny about the picture is my cup looks empty, but I drank my coffee so fast before I even took the picture, silly me, I guess I got too excited. They have so many good flavors right now its hard not to have them all! img_7441Starting today they are doing 30% of your entire order and if you spend over $49 you get free shipping too! Talk about a great deal! All you have to do it use the code Holiday30. The best part is this sale is going in until the NOVEMBER 28th so there is plenty of time to shop!! Now let me give you a couple of ideas why you need to buy this coffee, have a work Christmas party coming up? They have this set in the picture available to get and I’m sure your coworkers would love it! Is your offspring going to college next semester? I am POSITIVE they would love some coffee for those all nighters (I know I would)! Are you the person that goes Christmas shopping and then see something you like and get it for yourself? I know you’ll love this coffee too, and hey how are you going to finish your Christmas shopping without a little pep anyway?! I am good at justifying anything 😉 img_7454So get some Door County Coffee in your cup, your soul needs it! (this is when I refilled my cup 🙂 )
