leave it to a monday morning to have me thinking about nothing but coffee ..
things have been so hectic around these parts, as of late. and no matter how many times I tell myself “the early bird gets the worm,” when my alarm starts buzzing, I think just a few more minutes. snooooze!it is my worst habit. and it must be broken. but that’s for another day.
[side note: the blog is changing + moving. all will be revealed on friday].
one thing I do not hide along with many other things is my love of coffee. so I am sure this will catch you all off guard. I feel compelled to share my favorite coffee-inspired products ..
since when did the weekends become less about relaxing + more about catching up on life?
when friday at 4:00PM rolls around, I’m in a mad dash to attack a list I’ve been building throughout the work week. but the tasks are so much more fun. they typically consist of exploring the city I call home [des moines, IA], spending time with my husband, and designing + shooting photographs for this blog my happy place. but in order to tackle said list, I need an outfit that is dinner + hard work appropriate. for me, this outfit accomplishes just that. it’s colorful + fun, yet comfortable + practical. [speaking of the blog, stay tuned. big things are happening behind the scenes. cannot wait to unveil].
you fill + fill your weekend with plans, and the next time you open your eyes ..it’s monday. shoot! thankfully, the underestimated snow storm that made its way through iowa this weekend has caused my office to delay opening until noon today. [I think I can drink enough coffee + ready myself to take on monday by noon].
so back to the jam-packed weekend ..
a snow storm was rumored to hit des moines at 5PM on saturday, continuing through sunday. and leaving behind it over a foot of snow. but we would not let it ruin our plans ..the show must go on!
we had tickets for the blue ribbon bacon festival. it is exactly what it sounds + quite the spectacle in des moines. they had so much to see + do, but more importantly ..restaurants from all over the metro serving their finest bacon creations. I could not believe my eyes + ears. the creativity was impressive. and although, I’m not the most adventurous foodie ..when in rome.
