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.

Tasty Tuesday

Happy Tuesday! This very early morning, I am bringing you a super yummy dessert recipe from an amazing blog that I love: Baker by Nature. I am all about finding new chocolate chip cookie recipes. Sure, there are only about five-thousand different recipes out there that all happen to claim they are the very best -- but it's always so fun to try new ways to make them. I am a huge fan of having tons of chocolate chunks in my cookies, the more chocolate, the better!

This recipe for Brown Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookiesdelivers for my fellow "I want chocolate in every single bite" readers. While many of the chocolate chip cookie recipes tend to have a lot of similarities, this one has something truly unique: brown butter. Yum! I could really tell the difference between these cookies, and other chocolate chip cookies that I've made without the brown butter.

I know you'll love these cookies just as much as I did. Be sure to check out all of the yummy recipes that Baker …

Starbucks' New Craze

Pictured above, you'll see the newest drink from Starbucks -- meet the Iced Coconut Milk Mocha Macchiato. I am obsessed with Starbucks (you might guess that from the name of my blog!), and cannot wait to try this drink. I really love the Caramel Macchiato, so I can't imagine not loving this one! I plan on giving it a try sometime this week.
