My Ambiance Moment is when the kids are off to school and I have a quiet morning to read emails & sip my coffee 😉
Growing up my Grandma and Mom always told me coffee was bad for me, and they did it while they were sipping their coffees LOL  So I grew up never wanting to taste it, always being the odd Mom in the bunch because I drank Pepsi @ 7am while they drank coffee.  I embrace my weirdness completely! 
In the last year I was brave enough to sip someone’s black coffee and it reassured me why it could be so bad for me, it tasted “not good!” Then my husband introduced me to flavored coffee, frozen blended coffees!! I went to the dark side and have never looked back!  I had only tried the brand frozen ones, until a couple of months ago.  I received a beautiful basket of Premium flavored gourmet coffees from Smart & Final, they are DELISH!!!

 There are SIX new GROUND flavors, and they are fabulous!!!!
Gourmet Supreme, French Vanilla, Kona Style, House Blend, French Roast, and  Hazelnut.

I couldn’t keep this too myself, so I took the basket with me to a Military Wife meeting. They were a hit!!! The disclosure for not including pictures was given to me by the wives:

“We hereby announce that Lily does not have permission to take pictures tonight for her blog since we all are wearing our extremely comfortable holy sweats (that’s holy for holes not the sinless way because we are all guilty of sinning tonight with unlimited amounts of chocolate, coffee, and junk food)  and pajama pants.  Needless to say the hair in ponytails and nonexistent make-up would make a few of us end up without husbands, boyfriends or both”
Aren’t they hilarious?!  Laughter is the cure for sanity, that’s the way we look at it.  We had a great time, and I can safely say that a group of 22 Military Wives had an amazing #MyAmbianceMoment that night 😉
Don’t worry, I wasn’t just going to brag about this coffee and NOT SHARE!
