BUNN My Cafe MCU Single Cup Multi-Use Brewer

Tweet This

Internet we just got the Bunn My Cafe Single Cup Multi Use Brewer and I love it!

And not just because I no longer have to wash the coffee pot and assorted parts anymore. It actually makes a great cup of coffee.

And oatmeal. Not a cup of oatmeal, but a bowl. Though I guess you could use a cup if you want. I promise I won't judge you, unless you happen to be one of my roommates.

Click the pic to purchase from Amazon and support this blog OR Get a coupon from Bed Bath and Beyond and get it cheaper, probably.

The Bunn My Cafe Single Cup Multi Use Brewer is able to use a multitude of corporate coffee pods. Or you can brew your own coffee, my personal preference. However, this will require cutting a Melita number 2 filter to fit the filter basket, which is no trouble at all.

Radical Openness Jason Silva

Jason Silva, video narrator and "ecstatic truth lover," talks fast. What he's basically saying we need to get together and share ideas. Then those ideas can get together, have sex and make babies.......

Wait, what?

Maybe you should just watch the video.........

Ocean's Night

Tweet This

"Mom, can we please go to Ocean's Night at my school?" begs Gio.

"Sure," I say. "But you have to visit all the booths before you can play," I say.

"Ok," agrees Gio.

Two Hours Later at Gio's School:

"Mom, can I just play for 10 minutes first?" asks Gio.

"Let me think about it, um.......NO!" I say.

Extended Birthday

Yesterday was so much fun, we decided to continue the birthday celebration on the beach in the tent.

What more could a surfer girl ask for?

Birthday Beach Bash

Tweet This

"Happy Surf Day to me. Happy Surf Day to me."

My birthday is just another excuse to go surfing, not that I need another excuse.

Besides going surfing with family and friends for my birthday, we set up the tent on the beach. And had what I'd call a party, since we had food and drinks.

We were missing some people including my Mom, who was sick in bed, and Gio who was having the time of his life at a friend's birthday party. It was hard, but we made due without them.........

Baby Chicks

Tweet This

Today in science class I helped kids hold baby chicks. Yes, they actually needed help with this because when one baby chick escapes from a kid, so do a few others.

The chicks are so cute and cuddly. If you make a cave with your hands for them, they feel safe and secure and fall asleep.

Both the kids and I were amazed by the chicks' awesome sleeping abilities.

Sara Bareilles "Brave"

Tweet This

Check out Sara Bareilles' new video for her song "Brave." It's fun and inspiring and contains sound advice: Be Brave!

Dancing in public is a start in the extreme direction of being brave....... The making of the video "Brave," is entertaining too.

Ancient Greek Temple

Last night was open house at Vinny's (and Hubby's) school. Not only were many types of AWESOME homemade chilli, but I got a fun tour by Vinny himself.

And we only had to listen Gio complain, "I'm bored," the entire time.

Happy May!

Tweet This

May is one of my favorite months of the year and not just because it's my birthday month. I love all the colorful flowers and the warm sun and the waves. Well, let's hope May is filled with waves because right now the surf forecast is poor. #prayforsurf
