Contributor: Amanda of Morning About – Free Olaf Coloring Page

Hello again! I recently posted on my own blog about how much my family enjoyed Disney’s Frozen. If you haven’t seen the movie, I think it’s at least worth renting and watching. Actually, we really enjoyed it and will probably buy it. I think it’s also worth mentioning that I’m the only girl in the household, so even boys (and husbands) can enjoy this movie.

My favorite character, and I think this goes for the rest of the house, too, is Olaf. He’s an adorable, quirky snowman very lacking in the brains department. I was inspired to create a coloring page (my first ever, yay!) in honor of Olaf and I hope to do this again in the future. Anyway, here is my Olaf coloring page, which you’re free to print and use or modify however you want.

Recipe: How to Make a Cappuccino without a Cappuccino Maker

HowToCappuccino

It’s me again, the coffee addict.  :)  You all know very well how much I love my coffee.  Well I’m back again to tell you how easy it is to make a cappuccino without one of those fancy schmancy cappuccino machines.  :)  I used to have one of those expensive machines, but while they’re really nice and easy to use, you really don’t need to spend the money.

For Christmas I received something called an Electric Frother.  Ever hear of one?  It’s pretty much my favorite toy…ever.  When you combine this with your French Press, you have one amazing drink!

Ingredients:

Directions:

  • Using my Electric Kettle, I boil about 8-10 oz of water.
  • While the water is boiling, place about 2 scoops (2 tbsp) of coffee into the press.
  • I also prepare my coffee cup by pouring in about 1 tbsp of flavored syrup (set aside).
  • When the water is fully boiling, I turn off the kettle and add the water to my press.
  • Do be careful when the water is going into the press because it does tend to splash slightly.
  • With a plastic spoon (ONLY a plastic spoon) and stir up the grounds; remove the spoon, wipe it off, and sit spoon aside.
  • Next, prepare your Electric Frother with about 1/4 c of 2% milk.
  • Turn the Electric Frother on; when it’s done, gently press down on the press’ plunger.
  • This will push the grounds to the bottom, straining your coffee.
  • Slowly pour the coffee into your cup with the flavored syrup.
  • Then remove the lid of the Electric Frother and gently pour the milk into your cup; be sure to scrap out all of the frothed milk with your plastic spoon you used earlier.
  • Then take your spoon and gently mix your drink making sure to mix in the syrup that may be sitting on the bottom of your cup.
  • ENJOY!! :)

Sunday Summary

House Guest:

So we’ve had a house guest this week…and it’s definitely been interesting…  :)  Check out the cuteness!

Links:

How adorable is this?  I just love dogs that are smiling!  So cute!

Fast Foods:

This is completely disgusting.  I would like to know what teenager would buy something like this??  Then again…they are teenagers…  Eww.

Reading:

I really need to get through this random book so I can read Gone Girl (you’ll see why with the next link).

Movies:

I LOVE me some Ben Affleck…so when this trailer was released I was super excited…

TV Shows:

You want drama?  Do you love the Real World and the Food Network?  Check out House of Food.  I’m slightly addicted to it.  I love seeing these kids get it handed to them by world class chefs.  LOL  I know, I’m horrible…haha.

Song:

Too keep with my Divergent addiction…I LOVE this song…  :)  Seriously, if you haven’t checked out the soundtrack for the movie, you should.

Photos:

This is such a great photo campaign.

Video:

I’m not a cat lover, but this video is adorable!  :)

Weather:

So while last weekend it hit 78* here in Ohio, on Tuesday we had 1-2″ of snow.  HA!  It’s warmed up since and the snow is gone, but still…I’m over this fluctuating temperatures!

Childhood:

I’m pretty sure that I played with every one of these when I was younger!

News:

What did we do without selfies?

Ridiculousness:

wow_makeup

I was watching TV this week and I saw a commercial for some makeup (I can’t even tell you what it was for), but this is what they advertised.  I literally replayed the commercial about 20 times because I couldn’t believe they really wanted their customers to do this.  Now, I’m not a fashionista in any way, but seriously?  LOL  This is supposed to be classy?

Review: Trader Joe’s Cinnamon Apple Snack Sticks

Apple_Snack_Sticks1

I love Trader Joe’s; don’t you?  We don’t have one locally, so when we travel to Columbus, I like to stop in and see what I can try out next.  The last time we visited one, I picked up these yummy treats!

I’m not one that likes to eat potato chips these days, but yet there are plenty of times where I love a good crunchy snack.  These Trader Joe’s Cinnamon Apple Snack Sticks are surely going to satisfy that crunchy snack you may be longing for.

They have the texture of a Funion (I know, sounds weird) and then the taste of what would be an apple cinnamon potato chip (I know…again…weird).  I’m pretty sure the serving size is like 36 “sticks,” however I don’t think I ate more than 20 at a time; so this bag will last quite a while.

Go ahead and check this out if you’re ever at a Trader Joe’s.
