Quiet Sunday Mornings | #CoffeeMyWay

With all this listing the house craziness, and trying to get it cleaned up to "show material," I haven't had much down time.  The one thing that I have tried to take advantage of on the weekends is the peacefulness of the country first thing in the morning.  I teamed up with Wayfair -a perfect partner when I'm going to be decorating a new home soonish- to talk about #CoffeeMyWay.

Keurig Coffee Maker and Creamer
My favorite mug has hand-painted blueberries on it.  My mom sent it to me one year for Christmas, straight from Maine.

My routine during the week is basic and not at all fun.  I am consistently running late, no matter how early I get up.  Usually on those days, I throw a Folger's K-Cup into the Keurig and let it run twice; a big cup and a little cup. Did you know you could do this? Any more than the big and small at a time - I'm not sure on the fluid ounce size- and it gets watered down.   Tervis Tumblers are my travel mug of choice and we have quite the collection.  I have to make sure I don't grab the Gators cup- I'm fairly certain I would be sent home from FSU with it.

Coffee and "Together With You" by Victoria Bylin

Anyway- back to my favorite coffee-time.  Sleeping in a little on the weekend and leaving Scott to sleep even later, I make the same coffee I do all week.  Since I use a regular mug here at the house, I make two small cups at a time.  Did I mention that I put approximately 8 shots of French Vanilla creamer in my coffee?  Is that weird?  I don't use any sugar, though.

Coffee My Way: Country Morning on the Porch

After mixing my concoction and letting it cool a bit, I head out to the front porch with my coffee and whatever book I'm reading at the time.  I sit and listen to the birds chirping and the cows next door mooing.  It's a very relaxing start to a most likely crazy day.

I'm gonna miss this view when we move!

  1. I only use cream no sugar in my coffee too!!! And I am so with you on no matter how early I wake up, I always seem to be rushing out the door on the verge of being late. How does that even happen??

  2. Hahaha I believe it's because the earlier I get up, the more time I screw around until I realize what time it is, then have to scramble. I'm better off sleeping until the last possible minute and then just getting up and rushing through and out the door!

    I can't wait to have outdoor space again so I can do just that! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

    Sounds like such a relaxing way to start the day! Weekends are the best!

  6. Yes! I think it'll also be fun to be able to do this by the beach on a regular basis :)

  7. It is! As long as I can keep the husband asleep with the dogs, anyway :)

    Coffee is my lifeline, I seriously wouldn't be able to start my days without it!

  9. Me either, I've gotten to the point that during the weekend, I'll have multiple cups per day, just because I ENJOY the taste!

  10. Thanks! I enjoy it. I also love that the house can't be seen from the road with all the trees. It's definitely going to be hard to move back to a neighborhood!


I love comments! Let me know what you think!
