Welcome to My Place!

I'm super excited to begin this blogging adventure with you! For years, I have followed lots of fun, inspiring blogs that have pushed me to do my best, to work my hardest, and to enjoy all the little things in life. In the back of my head, I've always wondered, "What if I could do that?" That's what brings me here today. One of my biggest dreams has been to become a blogger who could inspire others, and create a place that readers enjoy visiting.

I love all things coffee, as you can probably gather from my blog's name. In college, my iced coffee was just as important and ever-present as my books and calculator. In my career, it is no different -- except you'll find plenty of decorative pens, colorful highlighters, and pretty to-do lists (I'm a sucker for stationary items!) scattered on my desk. My Wizard of Oz collection and Hobby Lobby items occupy a majority of my desk space also (my favorite movie, and my favorite craft store!).

Reader's Circle: 

  • Do you have a favorite blog that inspires you? 
  • Are you a coffee-addict? 
  • What do you keep on your desk space to keep you motivated?

My Day Off!

I have been so blessed to have a career that I do not have to work weekends, and am also off on all federal holidays. I love it when I get long weekends. It always gives me time for some much-needed rest as well as catching up on things around the house. It is so easy to get caught up in the daily hustle-and-bustle that we sometimes lose sight of what we really enjoy doing. Blogging is one of those lately for me, and I truly hope to devote myself to getting back into writing fun posts and reading all of yours, as well!

I don't have a plan for my day off (and sometimes those are the best days!), but I will update this post with what the day holds.

It Feels Good to be Back!

I missed blogging so much and cannot wait to get in the swing of things again. :) Just wanted to get a quick post out for those of you reading that you'll start seeing content from me beginning this weekend.

Thanks so much for checking in, it means so much!

Sunday Morning Breakfast

As I'm writing this mid-morning post, I am catching up on all of my favorite blogs and watching politics on tv (I am HOOKED!). I hope all of you are enjoying your Sunday morning. My husband is always on the go when it comes to the weekends and after being married almost one year, I am realizing that I need to start making breakfast more often. While I admit this is primarily for his sake, because he needs fuel for golfing long hours, it also has a nice side effect that I will actually eat breakfast too (I usually just drink lots of coffee...I know, awful!).


I have been doing really well at picking up fresh fruit and making sure to munch on it when I get into a snacking mode, as well as I always pack my husband some with his lunches during the week. So I included some fresh pineapple and blackberries this morning with breakfast to go along with this fantastic oatmeal recipe I found on Pinterest yesterday afternoon.
