Little things in life

Caffeine is one of little pleasures that I love indulging in
and I consume all of the below (except mochas).

I am so excited about the darling espresso mugs I found at World Market!
I might of even had an extra shot to try multiple colors :)

Prior to these colorful gems, we had two black boring espresso mugs that I bought back in like 2008 when I surprised Gabe with the DeLonghi espresso maker.  I purchased it in hopes that he would reduce the daily $4 Starbucks runs and make coffee at home.  But, to be honest it was too time consuming to make at 6:30am, so it sat in our pantry and collected dust.  I almost sold it on Craiglist multiple times, but held out with hopes it would be used, one day.
After Thailand this past October, we fell back in love with espresso after that's all they served, and I have been making us espresso with almond milk - pretty legit - each and every morning right after our protein spinach smoothies.


It's our routine, and the perfect start to our morning.

Haha!! I have those exact same cups from World Market, but mine are coffee mugs and say "coffee" on them. They are so darling and came with matching spoons. I love how bright they are... drinking out of them just makes me happy! You're right - it IS the little things :)

You'd think I'd know the difference between all the coffee drinks but I don't. I always get a chai tea latte because it doesn't taste like coffee. Those cups are too cute!

I love that top print - so cute! I always default to a mocha and in the summer an iced caramel macchiato (or however you spell it...)

My husband HATES coffee and hates the smell of it! His face when I brew my pot in the morning is always priceless ;)

I have tried to like coffee so many times and just can't get over that dang coffee taste :) I still need my morning caffeine fix though so I have to have Chai Tea or Crystal Light energy packets. Maybe someday I will finally get into this coffee craze- those mugs are too cute!

Caffeine is the one thing I've been missing most since I got pregnant, I can't wait till my angel gets here and I can have a real Dr. Pepper and a good cut of Joe. :)

I'm glad I'm not the only caffeine addict! After working as a barista I just can't kick the habit... those cups are too cute :)

I LOVE World Market! It is probably the BEST STORE for pretty much everything and anything sweet for your home!

I love my caffeine routine! And love espresso. Simple, and black, and that's it because espresso is so goood! Also you guys rock and love reading about your crossfit adventures.

Cute cups!! My hubby has a routine every morning with the nespresso and electric milk frother, he's addicted! I usually stick to a cup of black coffee.
