If you were looking closely, you may have spied something in a couple of photos from some recent posts.
Check out this photo from my post the other day on my cabinet-cleaning hysteria (see here for the full post).
Or this photo from my post about our construction paper turkeys (see here for the full post).
Do you notice anything? Look closely…
Here’s a big hint….
I got a Verismo!!! You may recall that I was obsessing over it a few weeks back (see here) and started plotting a way to get me one, including dropping a not-so-subtle hint about a possible anniversary present. Well, my husband is not dense and he picked up on the hint and surprised me with it for our anniversary. Yay, hubby o’ mine.
We’ve been playing with it over the last couple of weekends. And the good news is that we are really liking it. So far, it’s totally living up to its hype. It’s very easy to use. The espresso tastes great. It’s simple to clean. And it looks nice. What more could you want?
My absolute favorite drink at Starbucks is the caramel macchiatto. As part of the deal, Starbucks gave my husband a jug of the vanilla syrup and a big ole’ bag of the caramel sauce (which I put into a little green squirt bottle so I could feel like a real-live barista) so that I could make them at home. (The syrup jug and the squirt bottle can be seen in the top photo in the cabinet….)
So far, we’re very happy. And really enjoying sipping on a lovely latte or caramel macchiatto at home on Saturday and Sunday mornings :)
