When Did You Get Here?

hellodecI can’t believe December is here! It seriously snuck up on me and my goodness–this is the last month in 2013! I’m looking forward to so many things in the upcoming weeks–Holiday cheer, concerts, The Chipmunks Christmas Carols (Yes, I still love them), peppermint mocha coffee, peppermint bark, and baking my favorite sweet eats like peppermint bark fudge, found here. I’m sure you see a trend here. The older I get, the more I appreciate this time of year. I get to spend time with family, go on a random Starbuck’s run for a Gingerbread Latte, or just relax in my Snuggie by the fireplace.

snowmanI found this cute, little mug at the Dollar Tree to go with my Mocha Mint Cappuccino. Cheers to the Holiday Season!

Let the countdown to Christmas begin! Do you have any plans for the holiday season?

Hello December! Coffee Lovers


What an exciting time of year, especially for coffee lovers! I love flavored coffee so I was super excited when I found out that the Holiday Edition — K-cups (and coffee) were out for the season.


Took a trip to Bed, Bath, & Beyond and they had the Holiday Edition pack with: Golden French Toast, Spicy Egg Nog, and Gingerbread. I don’t have a favorite just yet, but I can’t wait to try them all. I purchased Pumpkin Spice back before Thanksgiving and I like those! Picking up some Mocha Mint Cappuccino today, because I absolutely love the Peppermint Mocha flavor!


You can’t forget to pick up your tin of Danish butter cookies during holiday season! I remember these from when I was a little girl. My Gran Gran use to keep these around. I found them last year after not having them for almost two decades and ’bout went into a state of shock! lol

Share with me your favorite holiday coffee or drink!

Happy Holidays!

Santa Came Early!


It is holiday season — one of my favorite times of the year! Christmas decorations, family time, peppermint bark, egg nog (Evan Williams is my fave), fruit cake, and the list goes on! I know I’ve been an “awful good girl”, but what I did not know is that Santa was going to visit me early! Glad I baked that cake (instead of cookies lol). My hubby surprised me with my very first gift — one of the best gifts ever!!! I am now officially #TeamiPad!!! I absolutely love, love, love it!

imageAnd thank you to my sweet friend, Chevy, for hooking my new baby up with a cool, purple stylus!

Santa didn’t stop there…I decided to suit up and surprise my Mom!

imageSince I (Mrs. Claus) was in the neighborhood, my Mom got her first gift! (She’s gonna get me if she finds out I posted this photo). Her surprise was…


…a new Keurig!!! I was totally planning on getting her one for Christmas, but since her other coffee pot broke…I decided to go ahead and give it to her. She was ecstatic! Welcome to the wonderful world of K-cups Mom! 

What’s on your holiday wishlist?

Coffee Time - My Pretty Brown Blog

It’s Monday…Coffee Please!

It’s Monday and the Keurig is calling my name! Monday’s are always the hardest and I need a little BOOST *NeNe voice* to help me get the day started. I’m already counting down to the weekend.

I bought these K-cups a while back at Bed, Bath, and Beyond! I actually got a great deal on them. The Island Coconut is my favorite! I got them all for less than $10 a box. The Café Mocha was on clearance for $6.99 a box! Sweeeet!

Weekend recap

Kept it very low key this weekend. The Essence Music Festival had me wore out…STILL! I enjoyed doing nothing! I did start reading a new book (Kimberla L. Roby’s – Here and Now) and I caught up on some shows.

Saturday & Sunday Marathon Day


Okay. I’d never heard of this show, The L.A. Complex, but I was watching Fuse and it immediately had my attention. From the first series (marathon) showing to the very last I knew I was hooked! So hooked, I ended up watching it again on Sunday to make sure I didn’t miss anything — because guess what? The new Season Premiere will be on July 17th on the CW! And yes I will be watching!

The official site of The L.A. Complex on The CW. The L.A. Complex is a dramatic look into the lives of six young performers striving for stardom in Hollywood.

So yeah you get the point! Aspiring dancers, actors, music producers, comedians, etc. you name it! I can’t wait for the new season to start!

Seafood Boil Sunday


Publix had a sale last week on snow crabbies so we took advantage!!! We got enough to enjoy then and for later (thanks to our deep freezer)! We had corn, shrimp, conecuh sausage (the best sausage ever), onions and salad! So good! I love Sunday’s like these!
