Monday 11/23

Happy Happy Monday!!

I've got two treats today - one I want to tell you about and another to give you!

First treat is one that my family (translation: my husband and I (since it's not kid-friendly)) got today. Our beloved coffee maker died on the morning of the 11th. It was a sad, sad day. But we recovered quickly, after a drive into town for our morning Starbucks coffee. And the kids wondered why they never got breakfast?!
Let me tell you about our coffee maker - it was a Cuisinart, 12-cup, stainless steel baby. Nothing fancy, no grinder, no fancy drink attachments...just a coffee maker. We loved it. It kept our coffee HOT all day long...we're talking at least 12 hours of piping hot coffee here. That's important to us. Secondly, it held 12 cups. Now even that is not enough for the both of us, but it's better than 10 cups or *gasp* 8 cups.
So we ordered the exact same one from Of course they don't deliver to Canada, so we took a beautiful Sunday drive this afternoon (a little over an hour, just across the border) to pick up our brand new coffee maker. We are so excited! Her she is...

Okay, so if you've tolerated my childish excitement over the coffee maker, you deserve a treat for yourself...I've designed a 12x12 quick page for you, using Kristin's beautiful Sweet Caroline.

Here's what I did with it...

I hope you enjoy! Thanks for reading and have a great week!
