simple steps to happiness

A few weeks ago I posted my new addiction-within-an-addiction on the White Lightning Facebook page (which is delightful, please "like" it because I like you, so why aren't you reading it???) and it seemed to TOUCH PEOPLE'S HEARTSTRINGS.

Here is a small step-by-step to true happiness, by way of coffee in your coffee.


Start with an empty glass! This one is thick plastic that looks like cheap plastic, and has a lid and straw that are all reuseable, like a to go cup for FOR LIFE. Mine is from Urban Outfitters. I like it because it makes me feel less guilty about not being a hippie. PLUS it makes life cheaper!


FILL IT WITH ICE CUBES THAT ARE FROZEN BLOCKS OF COFFEE AKA ICEY GOLD. This is best thing I have ever done.
Here's the recipe: Pour cooled coffee into ice cube trays.  Put trays in freezer. I THINK YOU CAN HANDLE IT.


Fill your cup with cold coffee (we fill a giant mason jar with coffee every night), and be SO proud of yourself for your super-efficient mode of caffeinating yourself.


Suck it down, run around the block, repeat repeat repeat until no one around you can handle your EXCITEMENT (haters gonna hate). Life is good!

Hyped up on white wine and Mariah Carey (boy did my 12 yr old self never think I'd be saying that) this looks like the best idea ever.

Maybe you should patent it. Can't wait to copy and get a little coffee nuts, esp with eco cup.
