The older I get, I seem to enjoy coffee more and more.I am thinking that I drink more now because I have found that Community Coffee works best for me.  I love flavored coffee and they have yet to disappoint me! I used to never drink it, then it was like 1 or 2 times a year.

You know how you go to a hotel and they have the "new movies" that are like $18.99 to watch? Well, over the summer, we paid the price to see Boss Baby!   Broxton had been BEGGING to go see it in the theaters and we just had so much going on that we never made it.  Once he saw the 9 million ad's for it at the hotel, I figured let's just go ahead and see it so he can stop asking about it.  Savannah fell asleep and we enjoyed room service and a movie.  We LOVED it!  Was it worth the $18.99?  I sort of have to say yes, since we knew at that point we would have to add it to our home theater collection.
