Café Domingo!

Morning Smile   I don’t know about you, but the time change has me kind of screwed up.  Yesterday, I forgot to set my clocks back an hour and so when I rolled over at “5:30”, I got up and started my routine.  When I turned the tv on in the living room, I immediately realized that it was 4:30!!  Ugh.  I just stayed up anyway.  

The weather yesterday was just amazing!  After church, I took my niece and nephew to get some lunch and then to Wal-mart for some salad fixings.  With the weather being so nice, I came home and spent some time outside.  I am pretty sure there was coffee involved too.  Winking smile

I took this picture of my nephew to send to my bf Diahann and her son Calvin.  Calvin and Dalton had just struck up a little friendship right before they moved to Ohio…. 

 

By 7:75 however, I was ready to go to bed! 

 

I am off today, but don’t have anything pressing to do…  I need to bring in some plants from outside, so I might do that.   The final book in the Divergent series came out last month, so I might run to the store and get it and just lay up and read all day!

 

 

Workouts for the week:

 

Monday:    Pump and Burn/30 minutes

Tuesday:    30 minute run

Wednesday:    Pump Challenge/25 minutes and 20 minute ab routine

Thursday:    yoga

Friday:    Pump and Burn/30 minutes

Saturday:    rest

Sunday:    20 minute ab routine/45 minute

 

 

 

Can I rant for a minute?

Why not, this is my house….

 

This past week I was reminded that we are an imperfect people.  No matter how much you try to convince a person of something, you don’t have any control over what they believe.  You just don’t.  What you do have control over is your reaction and your words.  

Can I use my words to tear someone down?  You bet.  Sometimes, I can even think that I feel better when I do it. 

 

I was also reminded that as a blogger, you don’t have any control over who reads your blog.  You just don’t. 

With that said, I feel it’s important to not feel like you have to sensor yourself……………..in your house. 

This is a journal and I should feel comfortable enough to share the things that are going on in my life.  I shouldn’t and don’t have to explain myself.

 

The other the thing that I learned this past week?

Sometimes women can revert back to fifth grade antics.  (me included)

This my friends, made me chuckle.

 

The End.

 

 

So I have found a new coffee that I love!  Have you ever heard of Peet’s Coffee??

It’s my new favorite! 

 

While I was in Ohio with my best friend Diahann (whom I miss terribly!!!), the Café Domingo is what I drank and just loved it!  Sadly, they don’t sell it anywhere near where I live…….so, I got online and ordered me a big box full! 

 

Another sad thing?

I’m out of these…

I loved these and they had the best flavor.  I love pumpkin, but I don’t like things to have a strong pumpkin-y flavor.  It has to be subtle. 

 

I do have these though!

I did some organizing over the weekend too… 

 

Before:

After:

I might just do some baking today too…  I picked these little jewels up the other day and I think I will add them to some cookies!  I didn’t think that I would like the taste, but they are quite good…

I can’t remember where I saw this, but thought it was the funniest thing….. lol!

 

 

Welp, that’s about it….I hope you have a great Monday!

Post Halloween

Happy Friday!   And thank God this week is over!   How was your Halloween?   I had to work until 6:00 and then stopped by to see my niece and nephew….

Look at this little guy!  His name is Jacob and he was a trucker….  Smile

 

 

Like I said, I am so glad that today is Friday.  It’s November!!  I can’t believe there are only two more months left in this year!  It is crazy how time just flies by….  and sometimes it just kind of stands still.  This year has had it’s ups and downs, but every moment has been character building.  There are lots of things that I would definitely have done differently.  I think God is so much bigger than our mistakes and that there is nothing that can stand in His way to accomplish His will in our lives.  Nothing.

Even our own selves.

 

Do you have plans this weekend?  It’s supposed to be really nice here and I can’t wait to enjoy the weather.  I am going to go see my parents this weekend and I can’t wait to get hugs from them!   It’s going to be a quick trip, but that’s alright. 

 

 

I am off to get ready for work….you guys have a great day!
