Time for another favorite things round-up!
Here’s what I’m loving right now:
The vanilla is studded with vanilla beans, but our favorites are definitely the chocolate and blueberry.
They did not last long. I’m pretty sure the blueberry is the best out of all of them, and it takes a lot for me to pick some other flavor over chocolate.
2. Starbucks VIA instant coffees.
Normally, I wouldn’t even try instant coffee. The only time I drink it is if we’re camping – and even then, it’s not exactly good coffee. When I met some people from the Starbucks VIA team at BlogHer Food this past May, they offered to send some samples to try.
I have to say – for instant coffee, it’s really good! Definitely not the same as making a fresh pot of coffee, but much better than any other instant coffee I’ve had in the past. The little packets will be great for traveling, too.
I even made my own salted caramel latte the other day for an afternoon pick me up. Best idea ever.
3. Willie. Our newest family member.
I can’t believe I haven’t posted pictures yet! With all our trips lately and crazy schedules, I missed getting pictures of him when he was really little.
Willie showed up on our front porch about a month and a half ago, very tiny and weak and hungry. We fed him, gave him water, and (no surprise) he kept hanging around.
Once he finally let us pet him, that was it.
But let it be known that Nick was the one to pet him first and name him! Not me, the weakling for baby animals.
Willie is super cuddly and loves to drive Maggie and Roxy crazy. He climbs trees and jumps out of them right when Maggie is running underneath them.
He wants to be loved on, and his favorite thing the past couple of days has been to climb up my pant legs. Also…he likes to go to the bathroom in our lavender plants. So, that’s fun.
If he ever stands still, I’ll try to get some better pictures of his cute little face.
Never a dull moment around here.
