New Coffee Maker

When Sarah, our daughter, had her baby shower this Fall, a friend of hers used a coffee machine to serve the guests. I had not seen one like it, but fell in love with it. (I don't even drink coffee).
It had the ability to heat water and give you a choice of tea, coffee, or hot chocolate. You make your selection of what they call a K cup, insert it and press the button and in a few seconds you have your drink.
I have so much company but never make coffee. (My guests fix their own) smile. I thought this would be a great way to give a choice to whoever is visiting. My hubby went out and bought me one for my birthday last month.

It's by Keurig. He bought a little turn around to hold the variety of drinks. You can get different flavors of coffee and teas.

You just open it up and put in the K cup you have selected and it brews in seconds.
The turnaround.
Come join me for some cookies and tea, coffee or hot cocoa.
I know we have to watch our calories at this time of year so I wanted to pass this little tip on to you.

The correct way to weigh yourself:

I can't believe I was doing it wrong all these years. WE MUST SPREAD THE WORD. Never take life seriously; nobody gets out alive anyway

Ho ho ho ~ I am going to have to try it that way.

I like your new coffee maker. I have had that brand before and thought it was very good. I didn't know you could also do tea and hot cocoa in it. What a great idea.

Hello...yep, it is me. I am commenting...see.
I just got myself this coffee maker. No really, just. I need to get some tea cups, but I just use the individual thingy. I LOVE it. Hot water on demand.
by the way...did you get permission from me to post me weighing on the scale??? That body looks very familiar!

I am a brand new reader and love your blog. And I love that coffee pot. I don't like coffee that much but that is some pot.

OOOH, I have never seen one either...how neat is that...I will look into those, that would be great for entertaining.
You ask me about the monogram chairs in my dining room....well, it is the ribbon that is monogrammed....I bought it at hobby lobby a few years back, but they have it this year to, it's with the Christmas Ribbon...it's the wide netting ribbon. It comes in a few different colors.
I pre made the bows and then had someone do the monogramming for me...Oh, how I wish I had a monogram machine. The bows just slip on and off very easy...however I keep them on there all year. Hope this info helps you. Blessings, Nancy

Love the coffee machine! And the cartoon! I have another hint; preslicing pies and cakes makes the calories leak out!

Glad to have found your blog!

Looks like a great coffee maker. We looked at one like this and considered it when we were getting a new coffee maker a few months ago. We finally settled on one that doesn't have a carafe. You put the cup under it and press a lever to make the coffee come out. It's a Cuisinart. Before we got that one we had a Cuisinart like the one everybody in the world had. It was a great coffee maker but we like the new style better.
