Black Friday is behind us but there are still exhausting days of holiday prep ahead and I am already yawning thinking about all the running around I have to do. My love for the holidays definitely keeps me going but my real superhero these past few years has been coffee. I know that sounds a little crazy but I’m sure any mom will agree.
We need a little extra help in the mornings but we don’t have a lot of time to go through the coffee-brewing process. I don’t want to worry about grinding beans or measuring out coffee. I mean I barely even get to finish my cup before I am running out the door to take the kids to school. The Keurig® K55 coffee brewer has been my lifesaver. With the Keurig ® brewer, I can simply add water, pop in a K-Cup® pod and I’m good to go in under a minute!
The Keurig® brewer is also perfect for entertaining guests, especially during the holidays when we have a houseful. The Keurig® K55 brewer has the ability to brew a single-cup beverage in under one minute! Everyone has their own tastes…some like tea, some like decaf, some want a flavor and I can satisfy everyone. My favorite K-Cup® pods this month are Green Mountain Coffee®, Cinnamon Sugar Cookie, and Green Mountain Coffee® Holiday Blend. I like to really commit to the season by sprinkling a little bit of holiday spirit into every aspect of my day. And for the kids, the Swiss Miss® Peppermint Hot Cocoa is the perfect beverage.
During the holidays I like to find little festive things for us to do at home together. When the temperatures drop we like to stay home and bake cookies or do fun holiday themed crafts. This past weekend we decided to decorate ginger bread cookies, and I also created a cute hot cocoa bar for them. I put out all the fun toppings for their Swiss Miss® Hot Cocoa like marshmallows, whipped cream, cinnamon, candy canes, and of course the kids also put in some of the candy they used to decorate their ginger breads. I love that the Keurig® brewer can cater to our entire family.
Speaking of holiday cheer…I never think to gift anything coffee related because not everyone drinks coffee but with a Keurig® brewer, you can enjoy a number of different beverages all year long. It is a great gift idea for tea drinkers, families, and especially people who entertain. Keurig® also offers a subscription program, so you never have to worry about running out!
The girls clearly went a little overboard with sweets on their gingerbreads, but they loved this set up so much, we plan on doing the same set up next week for a holiday get together with all of their friends in our neighborhood!
