Coffee and Twine

Y'all, it's been a doozy of a week around here.

The kids and I started getting sick on Monday and by Tuesday morning I had a terrible awful cold with aches and chills and a cough. And then I lost my voice.

Andrew was stuffy and snotty, but not sick enough to slow down, oh no. He has never been sick enough to slow down. He's the energizer bunny.

Sweet Caroline's just been kind of whiny and snotty, but luckily she didn't get too sick either. Really it was just me.

And Brian has been working so hard it's insane. We've barely seen him this week. We're all missing him.

One bright spot this week was my new coffee cup. I'm in love.

When I read Organized Simplicity in February I decided to give up my daily drive-thru iced lattes. I was sad, but I'm also saving tons of money. :)

So I started making iced coffee at home with our Keurig and Green Mountain Coffee iced coffee pods. It's really, really good and soooo much cheaper.

And now I've saved so much on coffee that I bought myself a Copco cup.

I love it. It makes my coffee happy.

I also got my Divine Twine this week.

I have no idea what I'm going to do with it, but it's so pretty I may just look at it.

Actually, I'm having a party here in a few weeks, and I think I'll use it for some cute party favors and decorations.

And I can use it on gift tags or cards.

Endless possibilities, really.

I hope your weekends are filled with fun pretty things!

  • I make iced coffee every day at home. Can't live without it! I love my cup like that too. As a matter of fact, everyone here does and i have to hide it from the kids, lol.

    Great shots! Hope you all are feeling much better ;)

  • BOO! on the being sick! Hope everyone is feeling better soon!
    Love your mug! You are so good to give-up drive-thru coffee. I gave up lattes for Lent and I saved so much money. I'm trying really hard to be good and not go too often anymore.

  • Your coffee cup is so cute. Almost makes me want to try iced coffee, but since I don't like it hot I've always assumed I wouldn't like it cold! The twine is so fun! I'm sure you'll find lots of lovely things to do with it. The colors are so pretty!!

  • Fun! I am all about having pretty water bottles... they make me drink more water. So a cute coffee cup is a must as well! So sorry you have been sick! Matt is working like crazy, too... this is the second weekend with no days off. I am feeling the strain for sure! Hugs to you!

  • Meagan, your photos are gorgeous! I'm sure everyone says that but I just have to say it, too. I'm a Dallas girl, live in Austin now, and I MUST have an iced coffee every afternoon. Once I got introduced to the coffee ice cube (yes, just freeze some coffee in an ice cube tray) I have never gone back to the drive-through. Your coffee not only will not get melty, it actually gets better and better as you drink it. Important stuff, ya know!
