Morning Latte makes my Breakfast {And DAY} Better!! #LatteLove

October 12, 2012

I am not a morning person by nature…. But you know what’s weird? I’m not a night owl either. (Even though it’s 10pm when I’m writing this right now!!)

I’ve been working outside the home for the last almost two months now – and sleep deprivation coupled with a disastrous home and lack of blogging time, has really made me grumpy lately… which doesn’t help the problem ONE bit.

But the other day – I woke up…. early.

Imagine that?!  I had showered the night before (which I oh-so-rarely do because my precious hair is not as pretty the next day…) which was OK because as a Dental Hygienist I just have my hair up in a pony tail anyway.  I got up when my alarm went off, got ready in peace and quiet (because everyone else was still sleeping!) {Angel Choir: ♪ ♫ aaaaAAAAHHHHHHHhhhhhhh ♪ ♫ }

Anyway, I got out of the house just as my husband was waking up, and went to… **Starbucks**  {Angel Choir: ♪ ♫ aaaaAAAAHHHHHHHhhhhhhh ♪ ♫ } I <3 starbucks SO much.  And you know what?? It makes my entire day Happy. 


I’m currently researching other ways to make my day that are a bitttt on the cheaper-but-still-easy side, like buying a Nespresso machine… I *really* want one, because then I can make better Caramel Macchiato’s from home – and not spend $4.60 each time I want to have a good day.
Too bad they’re not responding to my emails (Yes, I have pitched them.. twice.).


You know – I just picture myself getting up – maybe a LITTLE early each morning, making my own caramel macchiato in minutes – and reading up on my favorite blogs. 

What are my favorite blogs? 

Glad you asked…!
I really like because she cracks me up – and can make anything funny just by adding a ‘heeyyyyyyyyy…’ to the end of it. She is super sweet too – and I thiiinnkkkk I may have scared her a little bit when meeting her IRL and telling her how much of a fan I am.  (Seriously. I would never approach and proceed to drool over a celebrity, but I did – ALL over Roo. <figuratively of course. Ew.>). I’m pretty sure she was slowly walking backwards to the nearest exit after meeting me. *awkward*!! (Hi Roo! I promise I’m not a crazy psychopath!! I just think you’re awesome.)


And I hate to admit – I’m a closet fan: Motivated but extremely Intimidated and oftentimes Depressed by reading  She KILLS me with her beautiful home – and how it seems SO perfect…. If I ever visited her house I’d be looking for her ‘Monica’s Closet’. It’s GOT to be there somewhere… But I only wish I could be as colorful as she is. I all-too-often opt for Boring Browns in my home (Story of my LIFE!) – and she just seems to have all the exact pieces she needs… ugh. Annoying, right? But lovely, too.
She might just be TOO Perky for my morning – but maybe an afternoon Latte?
