Birfday Prezzie for ME!

OK--so after lusting for one of these babies for a long time--and getting super jealous that my girl Kelley (and her house of Chaos) got one--I decided to give my self a little splurge and use the birthday money I got to buy myself a little piece of heaven known as:  THE MINI KEURIG!!!

I am the SOLE coffee drinker in my house and I refuse to make an entire pot just for me.  I love that this makes Tea and cocoa as well--because, as much as I hate to admit it, cold weather is a coming and I just LOVE me a hot cup of cocoa on a cold winter's night.  Sigh--she's so pretty!  I've named her Katy Keuring and she is all shiny and new on my counter.  Thank you Kohls for gifting me with a 30% peel off KUUPIN to use to buy this little beauty! 

Will I regret not getting the bigger one with the water reservoir--most likely not--like I said, I am the ONLY person who drinks coffee--and on the rare occasion that someone pops buy who wants one--how hard is it to pour in some more water really.

I other news, my Whirlwind trip thru Chicago for work and Indy for a wedding was wonderful.  It felt good to stroll down Michigan Avenue again so soon!  I really think I could live there!!  If I could only afford it--ha!

The wedding in Indy was AMAZING.  It was at the Skyline Club in downtown Indianapolis--the Bride was beautiful, the groom was handsome and the party was awesome!  Did you know there was such a thing as a MASHED POTATO BAR????  Well friends, they had one and it was crazy.  The best mashers I ever had and toppings galore to put in Martini glasses to make your own creation--it was so cool.  Food stations were set up all around the club and so many options of things to eat--incredible!!  Even a mini hot-dog bar for the kids who were there.

The best part was the fact that they got all the "weddingy" stuff out of the way right in the beginning and then we just had a big old party.  Cake cut, first dance, toasts--all done within a few minutes at the beginning and the rest of the ight was fun, fun, fun!  Best wedding I'd been to in years and years!

We also had a fun Friday in downtown Indy for the Colts Kick off party at the Circle.  Not being from an area with a Major league sports team, this was quite cool to see! 

Oh well--that's all I've got for now!!

OMG, that mini-Keurig is sooooo CUTE!! Isn't it nice to treat yourself once in a while? I got on an iced coffee kick this summer and my Keurig got quite a workout. Now that fall is lurking around the corner, it will be back to hot cups o'joe in the AM!
