Coffee Talk + A Giveaway

We are in love with coffee, that's the absolute truth. We drink it morning, noon, and night. Well, my husband can drink it at night because he is a weirdo that can drink a latte at 10 pm and then go to bed like nothing happened. If I drink caffeine past 5pm, I'm up allll night. And that's why there is decaf. Green Mountain Coffee® hooked us up with our very own Keurig® Brewing System and a few boxes of their Colombian Fair Trade Select and it has been a coffee free for all up in here. ...more

Learn About Fair Trade & WIN a Green Mountain Coffee® Gift Basket!

The start of the school year has been rough on me. I am definitely not a morning person -- I don't even start feeling like myself until around 2pm and by the time 10pm rolls around, my body is telling me that the fun is just beginning. Unfortunately, bed time for me during the school year is 10:30 pm. BOO. The only (and I do mean ONLY) thing that makes waking up bearable each morning is a steaming hot cup of coffee....more

Fair Trade, Green Mountain Coffee, + A Giveaway!

I would call our household moderately socially and environmentally conscious.  We’re probably a little more so than most Americans, but there are definitely areas that we could improve.  We recycle, we compost though we aren’t fanatical about it, and we shop at our local farmer’s market whenever possible.  We also try to support companies that make good choices with our purchasing dollars wherever we can.  I think there are lots of ways to do simple, easy things to make a difference.  Even if it doesn’t feel like a monumental contribution to remember to take t...more

Supporting Fair Trade With Green Mountain Coffee {Giveaway!}

My Keurig® changed my life.Okay maybe not my entire life, but at least the first few hours of my days. I love the ease, the speed, and the variety with which it provides me life-giving coffee.And, with regards to the variety, I might be a bit over-the-edge OCD. In fact, my husband measures my sanity by the current state of the K-Cup Carousel.I’ve been training the kids on refilling it, justifying their labor as critical thinking education due to all of my rules and regulations....more

A Fair Deal

For those that know me, one of the things I love about the holidays is giving.  The feeling you get when you do something nice for someone or give them a gift that brings a genuine smile to their face.  That is what the holiday season is all about for me.  Another thing that many people know about me is that the "holidays" start around my house October 1st and go through February.  I live for this time of year....more

Making a meaningful cup.

I love coffee.  Like love it, love it.  So much so that I look forward to it as I go to bed each night, kind of love it.  It warms me, starts my day and gets me headed in the right direction. You know what I don't love?  Waiting for it.  You know what else I don't love? A purchase I made causing distress to someone for the cause of my comfort.  ...more

More Than Just a Cup of Coffee

If you know me, you know I love my morning cup of coffee.  It is definitely one of my favorite things about the morning - watching Emma Ramey play while I have my coffee to start the day.Lately, it seems that I gravitate toward buying things that not only are good for me, but also good for the people around me.  ...more

DIY Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer + Green Mountain Coffee & Keurig Giveaway

I'm a coffee girl. In college I worked at a coffee shop and so I learned a lot of tricks of the trade. I also learned that sometimes coffee shop customers are awkward. Seriously, I used to write an entire series on this blog called "Tales From The Coffee Shop" about my awkward interactions with customers. I cannot believe that I've been writing this blog since college, y'all. I drink a lot of coffee now because I am Scarlette's mother and if you've read here for any length of time you know that my two and a half year old is just about the cutest thing you've ever seen....more
