sharing the (coffee) love

Remember how excited I was about the new International Delight Iced Coffee? The cartons are now being sold at Walmart, whooo! Have you gone shopping for them yet? Do you love them or what?! I was lucky enough to be able to share the yummy goodness with a friend.

I decided to send a package of all 3 flavors (Original, Vanilla, and Mocha) to Beth at Me As A Mommy. First, she has two of the cutest

support our troops: operation zipper pouch

One of my readers is having a fundraiser for men and women in the military. She’s an independent consultant for Thirty-One Gifts and if you purchase a Zippered Pouch personalized with “Thank You,” she’ll be filling them with things like beef jerky, hard candies, toiletries, cards, wipes, etc.

Ryan face attacks Grandmama D

Ryan LOVES to face attack. Is he kissing? Is he trying to teethe on your nose? Is he being a monster? Or in the case of my mom (Ryan’s Grandmama D), is he trying to suffocate?

He’s so proud 🙂

Mom’s turn:

and finally…………… hahaha. This video cracks me up–watch till the end, my mom didn’t know I was taping her and I couldn’t get the words out to tell her, I

Sooo… my camera broke. And I recorded this using a cheap, downloaded iPhone 3G app… the sound does not match up with the video. Sorry! But you get the point 😉
