The Perfect Iced Coffee!

And now a break from our regularly scheduled programming for this important post from Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman.  I know my blog is all about Avon and how to look younger :)  but I gotta share this recipe with you.  If I had mountains where I lived I'd for sure climb to the top of the highest peak and shout for the world to hear that Ree Drummond should be president!  She says with humor on her blog that this recipe "will change your life".  Hallelujah she ain't a kidding!  I made some last night and it rocks!!

What, you say, am I raving about and wasting your time with?  I am singing praises of The Perfect Iced Coffee.  Check it out ... make it ... you'll be changed for ever.

You know, aside from Jesus Christ, caffeine is the glue that holds my marriage together.  As most of you moms out there can attest to ... we don't get much sleep.  Seems like something every night takes precedence over sleeping.  It's been said, and I can agree, that moms will get all the sleep they need when they die.  Because of that I need the caffeine to get me going in the morning.  But the problem is that I don't like hot drinks.  Not unless it's Alaska cold outside, which doesn't happen often where I live.  Therefore, my caffeine comes in the form of diet coke ... yes, even at 5:00 a.m.  Well, friends, now that I have stumbled upon Ree's liquid gold my sweet hubby won't have to hear the tell-tale sign of "pssshch" ... and won't have to roll his eyes ... each morning as a soda can opens up.

Viva La Ree!
