simply steps

A few years ago Dan & I decided to splurge on one of those coffee makers sold at Starbucks to encourage us to make it at home & save some $ in the long run. Unexpected bonus: the Barista & complete stranger that helped us choose the best one also extended her employee discount just because. Ugh...thank you; really? thank you!

One of my favorite things about my (sometimes painfully) predictable life with my predictable husband is that he makes coffee every morning.
And he really does make it better than I do.
That is not a ploy to get him to make it.
It just tastes better even if he is standing over me telling me exactly how much to use.
He's better at anything that tastes better if you measure it.
I'm an eyeball-er.

The first time I saw this ad, I thought of us. I pictured our faces over theirs. I'm laughing at how he laughs at his own joke before he's even finished the punchline! He loves it. (and looks much better in a white tshirt)
This weekend he was looking at a magazine with this same ad in it & said "I love that. I see that and I want to buy Coffee-mate. That's where I want to be. Just like that."
I smiled; I love that we love the same things.
And we do buy Coffee-mate. In the coffee-lovers size at Wal-Mart.
