Coffee Break

I have a few blog posts up my sleeves (a half marathon training plan, a camping trip, and the best recipe for carrot cake in the world) but work has been busy and my Internet has been out at home. (Turns out that if you forget to pay the bill for three months, they shut off your connection. Who knew?) While I'm busy taking care of those things, let's shift gears and talk about coffee.


I love coffee and I'm never without my trusty travel mug, due to the intense guilt I feel when throwing anything away. My previous mug was an ugly stainless steel cup who's lid was impossible to clean and was forever caked with gunk. Not very appetizing. When I saw the cute mug pictured above at Old Navy - white, with a pink sleeve, and only $4.99 - I had to have it. And I love it! It's adorable and functional, super easy to clean and makes drinking my morning coffee the joy that it was meant to be. Cheers! 

Occasionally, I come across bloggers who are in the midst of "cutting back" or "giving up" coffee. You will never find that listed among my goals. I love coffee and coffee loves me. During the week, I usually have one 12 oz travel mug of coffee in the morning (3/4 coffee, 1/4 almond milk). If it's a particularly hard day (or I haven't slept well, or I'm looking forward to a late evening, or I hit the box of wine a little too hard the night before) I will resort to a second cup in the afternoon. On the weekends I drink coffee all day, but I also up the almond milk so I don't have a heart attack. This method has worked well so far.

Are you a coffee drinker? If so, how to you like your cup of Joe prepared?
