Bailey's Hot Chocolate

Dear Blog Reader (yes YOU there),

I love you more than words can explain, and seriously feel like we’re internet best buds. But, sometimes I’m really glad…

that you can’t see me! Today is one of those days. The weather can’t make up its mind. My hair is frizzy, I’m wearing Cookie Monster Sweat pants, and flip flops. I’m going to sleep with the window open, fan on, leg out, and waking up freezing halfway through the night. And rinse and repeat.


I may also be drinking Baileys hot chocolate. This stuff is going to  make you never want regular hot chocolate ever again. Smooth, creamy, and with just enough booze! Use the leftover Baileys here:
