My Fall mornings have a very simple recipe for happiness.

Take a little of this:

Add a little of this:

And oh my goodness... it's pure HEAVEN. Although my cup isn't nearly as pretty, it's typically a Wawa brown paper cup (no coffee... PROMISE!). But oh my heavens it is amazing.

Years ago while visiting Las Vegas with friends for New Year's Eve, a friend of a friend of a friend got a plain old 7-11 Hot Chocolate and added French Vanilla creamer. (Can't remember her name to save my life- but I will be forever indebted to her and her amazing creation.) It was delish. Since us silly non-coffee drinkers aren't typically familiar with the creamer section in a 7-11... let me tell you: it is like being a kid in a candy shop!

Hmm... do I want my hot chocolate to taste like:

Amaretto, Belgian White Chocolate Macadamia, Caribbean Cinnamon Crème, Dulce de Leche, English Almond Toffee, French Vanilla, Hazelnut, Hershey's® Chocolate Caramel, Irish Crème, Southern Butter Pecan, Caramel Macchiato, White Chocolate Mocha, Vanilla Latte, Skinny Caramel Macchiato, Skinny Vanilla Latte, Breve Crème, Dark Chocolate Cream, Vanilla Caramel Cream, Hazelnut Cream, Chocolate Chip Crème Brulée, Sweet Buttercream, Marshmallow Mocha, White Chocolate Mudslide, Chocolate Mint Truffle, Pumpkin Pie Spice, Vanilla Spiced Rum, OR White Chocolate Raspberry...

You get the picture- there are a bazillion options. All of which make an already perfect drink 'that little bit better'. It really is enough to put a smile on my face.

Especially when my morning starts out like it did yesterday:

Rain + Traffic + 15 minutes late to work = One grumpy pregnant lady!
AND an inspection sticker that expires next month... dang.
But if all else fails... any grumpy mood can be solved by a little Hazelnut Hot Chocolate, and a nice snack of this:

Yep, can't complain too much. My taste buds are enjoying October already!!!!!
