I woke up last Sunday to the sound of rain hitting our bedroom windows. I curled up under my blankets once more which felt glorious after sleeping ten hours that night. After glancing at the monitor to a snoozing Lola, I peeked at my phone only to realize it was almost 8:00 and both kids were still sleeping -- this is quite a miracle in our house! I knew it would be the perfect opportunity to enjoy a good cup of coffee to myself before the wild and craziness of the day began. So I slipped out of bed, got Kurtis to start a fire and curled up on the couch with my favorite cup filled with warm coffee. It was just me, my Real Housewives and my "mommy juice" to get my morning started.
Let me preface this magical moment with our activities from the day before. Kurtis and I had stopped by the Walmart in Fishers to grab a few snacks for the IU game that weekend (which ended up being a complete disaster of a game - I'm not still bitter or anything.) While we were in the store, we happened upon an in-store demo for McCafé premium bags of coffee and coffee pods. You know I wasn't turning down a cup of coffee - especially on a Saturday. McCafé coffee is made with 100% Arabica Beans that are harvested from the rich soils and mountainous regions of the foremost coffee-growing areas of the world. Plus with eight delicious flavors, you know you will find one (or more) that you love! Even though I'm usually not a huge dark coffee fan, the Dark Roast from the demo was amazing! Kurtis and I grabbed a box of Premium Roast coffee pods which we would soon find out would make our whole morning.
Now let's jump back to our silent Sunday morning. This kind of silence is rare, so anything to make my morning alone even more enjoyable is definitely a plus. After my amazing cup of the McCafé Dark Roast the day before, I was anxious to taste the Premium Roast to see how it could compare. The convenience of the McCafé coffee pods added to the ambiance of the morning. I popped a pod into my machine and within seconds of the coffee hitting my cup, the amazing aroma filled my nose -- seriously, it was like instant heaven. I love my children more than anything, don't get me wrong, but being given this opportunity to just put my feet up and think about mindless reality television was just what the doctor had ordered. As I curled up on the couch with my cup of coffee I was able to enjoy the simple quiet of the morning for a solid thirty minutes until my two favorite peanuts came to join my pajama party.
