the remainder of your summer by drinking hot coffee.
especially when it’s so easy to make home-brewed iced coffee. using items you already have; coffee grounds, water, & a coffee filter. [I use the one that came with my coffee pot]. just remember: 1 cup of coffee grounds to 4.5 cups of water. let them marry in the refrigerator for 8-12 hours. and you’ll be a happy camper.
my favorite part: taking it to work ..in a mason jar. because it’s more fun that way.
I am so, so excited – we’re on the road. destination: my hometown.
to see my parents.
and what I’m really, really excited about … my brother is coming to visit from colorado! I haven’t seen him since Thanksgiving, so this is a treat!
then we’re headed to Iowa City. home of the Iowa Hawkeyes. & my college memories. which I can’t wait to relive this weekend. woo hoo!
last year [J] & I went back for a game and …
we had fun, to say the least. we cannot wait to see what this trip has in store!
last night I did a lot of prep work to get us ready for the weekend. [because we’re living healthy-err]. so I made us snacks! aka – when we’re tempted: grab a healthy snack bag vs a trouble tailgate treat.
veggies. fruit. yogurt. cottage cheese. pirates booty.
& home-brewed iced coffee. in mason jars.
then I had to pack my clothes …the worst part about traveling.
actually the worst part is the unpacking.
but all of that is behind us – because we’re on the road.
[and I even got up EXTRA early this morning to work out – go me!!!].
happy thursday friends.
[tomorrow “the week in photos” will be posted as scheduled, from iowa].
