Monday Morning Must-haves

wearemakers : August 11, 2014 9:25 am : Coffee, Ready Made
My Monday mornings aren’t too different from every other morning.  We work weekends, we take weekdays off sometimes, our schedules are all mussed up – so I guess Monday isn’t really this horrible ‘have-to-get-out-of-bed-and-commute’ kinda day over here.  However, due to a lifetime of conditioning that has led me to believe that Monday mornings are less tolerable than all the other ones, I have a short but important list of things that make my grumps go away on a morning such as this. Coffee An obvious must, but worth noting.  A good bean is definitely number one on the priority list and at the moment we are trying this dark italian roast from Kind Coffee.  Clint’s parents recently went on a vacation to Colorado (sigh) and brought a bag back for us as a gift.  We are seriously that easy to buy for – a bag of beans from wherever you :READ MORE:

Shake it up

IMG_4590 copy2Confession time. Because of the majority of the content of this blog, I’m sure you are aware that I put a lot of time and effort into keeping myself and my family healthy.  We eat copious amounts of fruits and vegetables, consume heaps of good fats and fermented foods and don’t even allow processed, packaged or sugary foods into the house. Everyone has a flaw though, right? Here’s ours.  We work a lot and we work late.  Our schedule is not ‘normal’ or ‘efficient’ and honestly, we could be getting more sleep at a better hour – sleep is the glue that holds our health together and I really should know better.  We work late, we sleep late, we use coffee as a coping mechanism in the morning, afternoon and night.  That is, until we found the salted caramel shake at Sonic. Yes, I’m sorry to say, but sadly it’s true :READ MORE:

Titanium Coffee

wearemakers : June 24, 2014 12:01 am : Coffee, Food
BPcoffeeToday I decided to do another coffee post.  Told you I’d post a lot about coffee. This is coffee with a bit of a twist.  My husband - Über Coffee Snob Extraordinaire – wont go near it.  I, on the other hand (with my love for all things beneficial to my body and longevity), can’t get enough.  I call this my ‘Titanium Coffee’ for three reasons: A guy went ahead and registered Bulletproof Coffee as his business name and is making a killing. I always end up singing “I’m bulletproof, nothing to lose.  Fire away, fire away” under my breath while I make it. It keeps me strong, nourished and full for hours and makes me feel invincible.  I AM TITANIUM. Ok, so if you want to pack your morning with caffeine, beneficial fats to aid digestion, a metabolism booster and LOADS of go-go-go, you better get brewing: Titanium Coffee 1 Cup :READ MORE:

Wake up! It’s Monday!

wearemakers : June 16, 2014 9:26 am : Coffee
boxcarMonday.  Widely known as the most dreaded day of the week. While all of my days kind of mash together into one super long day littered with naps resulting in not knowing what day it is, ever, I empathize with you people (the ones who know what day it is). Waking up is hard to do, so I have a suggestion. The lovely folks at Boxcar Coffee Roasters have a really, REALLY fantastic selection of various roasts and blends as well as a killer, water-processed Decaf for all those of you who are expecting, naturally wired or just soft.   We opted for the Sweet Yellow this time around.  Actually, I bought it as a father’s day gift for my one and only, but seeing as he’d been pulling all-nighters to prepare for his art show (it was on Friday, pics to come), I thought I’d do the right thing and :READ MORE:

Luckily, this is why.  He’s got babe’n hands and they make things like this.  Just a little sneak peak of some exciting things to come! See more at his website or tumblr Follow my blog with Bloglovin
