I go through phases.
Sometimes I’m on a tea kick, other times a coffee kick.
Right now?  Coffee.
And, while I like Starbucks as a place, I personally cannot stand their coffee coffee.  Their coffee drinks?  Yes.  But not their coffee coffee. 
Fortunately, my distaste for it saves me beaucoup bucks.
Here is what I’ve been drinking lately.

Pretty much anything from The Fresh Market.  Caramel Macchiato.  Creme Brulee.  The beans are housed in these big barrels, and they smell incredible.  Its worth it just to stop in and taste test even if you’re not going to buy!  Their seasonal blends are also fabulous. 
(Also, even though this is a coffee post, you should know that you can find Paris Tea for $6.99 at Fresh Market!  It’s the cheapest I’ve been able to find it.  And I will never understand how Williams-Sonoma can sell it for $12 right next door…)

Some of the blends I’ve tried from Trader Joe’s:
Organic FT Breakfast Blend
Organic FT Wake Up Blend

Any other brews I should try?


It’s Saturday.  That’s cool.

I’m officially in my third trimester.  Super cool.

Softball season has started.  Which means we have cool husbands.

Mike is a beast at P90X.  He’s getting fit while I’m getting fat.  NOT cool.

And here are some treats that you should either buy or make in order to STAY cool:

1) Fruit Floes from Trader Joe’s. 


Amazazing.  Whole Fruit bars.  Buy them NOW!  They’re only $1.99 for 4!!


2) Pineapple Strawberry Lime Smoothies.

Pick up some simple syrup (or make it), blend it with yogurt and frozen fruit, stick a lime on it and voila! 

3) Homemade Butterfinger Blizzards


Who needs Dairy Queen?  Just get vanilla ice cream, milk and A LOT of Butterfinger bars, and blend!  And invite friends over.  Then you’ll be so cool you won’t know what to do with yourself.

Now I’m headed into town with Cyndi and Michelle for some good coffee and a trip to the Grower’s Market.  We’ll see if Starbucks can handle our coolness.
