My Favorite “Coffee” Drink Recipe
Sometimes I’m grumpy. Shocking, I know.
Whoever heard of a grumpy mom?
Yeah, I’m all about keeping it real. My name is Kat and I get grumpy. So when I need a little pick me up, I drink coffee. Not just any coffee. A special, yummy concoction that transforms me from grumpy mommy to super fun mommy. It’s similar to Superman’s phonebooth, but a bit more portable and doesn’t involve spandex outfits.
Because that would just be scary.
First, let me warn any of you true coffee drinkers, you might be very offended at the recipe to follow as it doesn’t resemble coffee as much as it does mint M&M’s. Which doesn’t really seem like a problem to me since I don’t actually like “real” coffee.
Here you go:
Kat’s “Healthy” Peppermint Mocha
1 cup of hot coffee (we currently have Seattle’s Best Hazelnut cream, but they all taste the same to me)
4 tablespoons of Ovaltine (call me Grandma if you want to. It’s yummy and vitamin-y)
1 leftover mini candy cane
1 dollop of whipped cream
And, yes, I realize it isn’t actually “healthy” but it IS cheaper than Starbucks Peppermint Mocha, so it’s “healthy” for our budget. And, of course, the vitamins…

We’ll run it a little differently than we have in the past, though. More accountability, more community. More awesome.
Alarm clocks have never been so cool.
Are You Coming To Dallas?
Ideally, right here, I’d say how I have perfectly planned the meet up for the Sally Clarkson MomHeart Conference. Except I haven’t, so I can’t say that. But we’re definitely doing it, I just need to figure out the when and where.
If you are coming to the conference and haven’t let me know yet, contact me so I send email you the info on the meet up. As soon as I find my administrative skills.
And if you’re not already signed up for the Sally Clarkson MomHeart Conference, well, what are you waiting for? It’s going to be amazing.
Do Not Miss This
I may have mentioned 1 or 5,297 times that I just adore Ann Voskamp. Not because she’s an amazing writer. Not because everyone else thinks she’s cool. Not because she takes amazing pictures. Not because her name is Ann. Simply because her words drive me to Jesus.
Is there a better compliment for a blog or a book?
I’m almost giddy.
