As parents Dan and I find it hard sometimes to find time to spend together so I have learned to get creative in our dates. Sometimes it’s the little things like trips to the store or running errands that can be turned into a fun day date. Now that the fall is here one of my favorite ways to get out of the house and sneak in a quick day date is to make a coffee and visit one of our local farmer’s markets.

I work from home four days a week so typically on Wednesdays Dan will drop Aiden off at home care while I make quick lattes to go. Dan picks me up and we head to the Farmer’s Market. I love looking at the changing foliage, walking through the crunchy leaves, and all the pumpkins, gourds, and Halloween decorations. It’s the perfect opportunity for us to talk while shopping for fresh produce and fun holiday decor — not to mention the apple cider donuts.

We found Land O’Lakes® Buttercream Style Half & Half at our local Wal-Mart and I knew it would be perfect for a latte. It is an extra indulgent Half & Half made with real milk and cream. Buttercream always reminds me of the fall and my favorite holiday treats so the opportunity to add it to my coffee sounds great to me! The Land O’Lakes® Buttercream Style Half & Half makes a perfect flavored foam which characterizes the latte plus add a little heavy cream and it makes a wonderful flavored whipped cream. You can also use it in a hot chocolate if you aren’t into coffee or want to make it for little ones.

About Melissa

Hi, I’m Melissa! I am a mama to my baby Aiden Milo (born November 2015), and a police wife to my husband Dan. I started this blog because, after having Aiden, I quickly learned that exhaustion and baby brain causes you to forget some of the er-lovely (sometimes horrible and sometimes wonderful) details related to the first several months of raising a baby. Considering we may have more kids in the future, I want to document everything we do, so we remember what worked the first time around, and hopefully help other first time mamas along the way!
  • This looks delicious! I love how quick and easy the latte is to make using the Land O’Lakes® Buttercream Style Half & Half. A recipe like this makes it possible to get out the door quickly and enjoy your date! #client
