The winner is my sweet pal Carla!! She said

My favorite place to have a cup of coffee is (believe it or not) at Olive Garden. They seriously have the BEST coffee I’ve ever had. Plus, it’s a special place for Josh and I since it’s where we have had (and still have) a lot of date nights enjoying their fantastic coffee. I just like the atmosphere with the Italian music playing and the low lights and all. Good times. :)

Congrats, Carla! I know you’ll want a bag of dark roast, is there a specific kind that is your favorite or shall I surprise you? Can’t wait to send it to you! Kiss the belly for me (she’s pregnant!! eeeek!!!)! ♥

Just to put a face to the name… this is one of my favorite photos of the two of us!

Isn’t she lovely?

Thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway! It was fun and I was bursting with excitement to find out who would win! Happy Snowy Monday!

A Snowy Sunday

Hiya! Andrew and I have taken to sleeping late, having excellent cinnamon coffee and watching the snow fall outside. It’s be such a delicious morning! Especially after last night when we found out his truck is not as fixed as we had hoped. Alas, alack.

We’re also watching Letters to Juliet. Not even joking. I actually really dig this movie, perhaps it’s all of the Italian architecture, food and language? Italy is on my list. I’m actually thinking of learning a bit of Italian given the chance!

[I love the idea of Juliet’s love letter wall. Although I think my letter would just be a sickening mushy love letter.]

Photo of my week coming up later! Until then, have a happy Sunday afternoon!

Hiya and Happy Thursday!

Since Andrew and I aren’t traditional in… basically every way, we decided to use our tripod as a Christmas tree. You remember my previous mention of the 5 foot string of lights that we were so stoked on and how woefully inadequate they were, right? Well here is a photo, a before and after if you will.

I’m pretty sure we bellowed with laughter upon inspection of this attempt at lights. It was to hysterical! Angus, however, is cozy as a little bug in his tent. Gotta love that.

Okay, so here is our treepod after we bought some an actual string of lights.

Much better. And, we did include the original 5 foot strand. It just seemed appropriate to include our very first string of lights on our very first treepod. Being married is so fun and full of firsts! We’re pretty pleased with how it turned out, kinda cute!

Today I’ve been sipping out of my deer mug, I found it in a box store with my college roommate and HAD to have it. It’s been one of my favorites since :]

I think coffee might taste better when it’s out of this mug. Just sayin’.

My dad and I are making hunter brownies this evening, they’re a blast from the past when it comes to sweets. We always made them in the fall/winter seasons when I was little and it’s been SO long that we decided that it was high time for another batch! I’ll share photos later and perhaps a recipe?

Happy Afternoon!
