Hello, hello! How’s your weekend going? So far, mine’s been a lovely stream of fun+relaxation+productivity. OK, I kind of lie on the last one, but anywho.
Every morning, I can count on one thing, no matter what: Coffee. It looks a little like this.
Well, except on days I run half marathons, but that’s another story – one that’s already been told.
No matter what, I know I’ll start my day with two familiar ingredients:
Coffee and cream. No funny business. It’s like the best friend you can always count on…for serious talks. It’s all I need most mornings!
Occasionally, coffee needs a little fun in its life, too.
I mean how can you resist a stunna shade-wearing raspberry flavored coffee?
Occasionally, I start my day with two different ingredients:
Hello, flava flav-ored coffee and sugar. Nice to see you again! These ingredients are more liken to the friend who knows how to party, but you can only handle in doses
A while back, the husband and I stopped buying Starbucks coffees. It was part of our save money strategy. Now we make fancy drinks at home (using $11 coffee and just as expensive sugar…but I digress)
When we occasionally feel like switching up the morning coffee routine, I pour 4 parts white chocolate raspberry coffee, 1 part turbinado sugar into the French press, and then pour in the boiling water using my electric kettle.
It makes for a fancy, tasty coffee treat at
a fraction a little bit less than the price of a Starbucks latte!
It also makes for delicious Saturday road trips to Chicago beverages:
which the details of I’ll discuss in a later post
For now, I’m off to run a 6.5 miler, train a couple clients, and then head to a volleyball team cookout
What do you drink first thing in the morning? Immediately upon waking up, I must guzzle some water. Then it’s allll about the coffee time
