baby, it’s cold outside.

I had some fun working on a blog post for Reclaiming Beautiful last weekend.  The owners, Monique & Susan, wanted to pull together a hot cocoa bar in the shop.  With the ice castle opening up in Stillwater this week, they want to encourage people to stop in after visiting the castle and warm up with some free hot cocoa!

So I whipped up a couple of chalkboards to use in the photos for their blog (and they will be for sale there as well) using a design I downloaded {here}.

I liked the design so much that I decided I needed it on the chalkboard chair that hangs in my kitchen.  And since the chair hangs right next to my Keurig, the arrow even pointed in the right direction.

I keep lots of hot chocolate on hand for my Keurig because my sister and niece don’t do coffee.  We’ve also found a pretty yummy hot apple cider that we like this time of year.  I keep my k-cups in this adorable faux vintage rack that I purchased at Reclaiming Beautiful last year (by the way, they have another one of these in the shop now).

So although we are expecting a high of only 1 degree today here in the Twin Cities, it’s easy to warm up at my house!  Just pop your beverage of choice into the Keurig.

Be sure to head over to the Reclaiming Beautiful blog and check out my post there.

  1. For some reason, I didn’t know you could make something other than coffee in those machines…this is good news to me, as I’m also a non-coffee drinker. Love the chalkboard and the lettering! Hoping it warms up enough to be outside for any length of time soon!

  2. Loved your creative cocoa bars at Reclaiming Beautiful. May have to create one at the cabin. It always looks so bare after the Christmas decorations come down. You’ve inspired me to do a chalkboard on “something”. Not sure what. Thanks for all your inspiration.

  3. I was actually drinking a mug of hot chocolate when I opened up your post! Highly unusual because I’m a coffee lover. FYI, the Starbucks Keurig hot chocolate is really good + it’s BYGO right now 😀 Love your chalk boards, by the way. Thanks so much for sharing!

  6. Maybe we should go to the Ice Castle on Sunday and visit Reclaiming Beautiful. I love the rack for our 4 or 5 flavors of hot cocoa. Kris is off on Sunday.
