My morning “me time” just got even sweeter!

This post has been sponsored by Coffee-mate® Creamers. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

We are halfway to the weekend and I am so ready to unwind. Do you live for the weekends like me? I think I look forward to the weekend when Monday morning arrives, ha! This weekend I could not be more excited to relax and sip on some coffee featuring my new favorite creamers.

Are you a coffee lover? Do you like to add a little sweetness to your coffee? Well, guess what, Coffee-mate® Creamers just came out with 3 new dessert-inspired flavors at Walmart and I am obsessed. Oh my yum. One thing you should know about me, and if you don’t, now you’ll know… I LOVE to shop whether that be for groceries, clothes, or basics, and Walmart is one my go-to places. They have affordable prices, variety and all the goods that make them a one-stop shop for any needs on your list. And they happen to carry the aforementioned creamers, too.

Coffee-mate® Creamers just released a line of Dessert Creamers in Coconut Caramel Latte creamer, Toasted Marshmallow Mocha, and Cookies & Cream flavors. Talk about melting in your mouth!  I may be a rare breed but I am not a “black coffee” type gal–give me all the sweets to add to my morning coffee and I’ll be happy! You can head to your local Walmart and purchase one of these 3 scrumptious flavors, heck get all three! You can find them in the dairy section. Oh! And be sure to look for the Coffee-mate in-store sampling event happening May 10-13th, too.

If I could describe each of these Coffee-mate® Creamers in one word…

Coconut Caramel Latte- Devine
This one instantly turns your simple, at-home coffee into a trendy and expensive-tasting latte. The coconut and caramel are the perfect compliment to each other. And the flavors kind of remind me of my favorite Girl Scout cookie.

Toasted Marshmallow Mocha- Savory
This creamer reminds me of summer nights by the firepit. It is the perfect amount of sweet!

Cookies & Cream- Delectable
Like ice-cream in your coffee–I just can’t get enough of this flavor! This one might be my favorite.

My weekend morning routine consists of this gal waking up to the fresh smell of the coffee pot going- thanks to Andrew. When I smell that, my feet are on the ground and I am up, and now that I have Coffee-mate® Creamers at the tip of my fingers, I get even more excited to wake up!

I choose to start my weekend on a positive note by creating “me time.” Whether that is reading a book (I honestly had to start my book over because it has been so long since I have picked it up), scrolling through social media (my guilty pleasure), or simply taking a deep breath by looking out the window, I find time to do one of those many things with my coffee in hand.

I am a huge advocate for creating “me time” I sometimes am the WORST at making that time for myself but when I do, boy do I love it. Balance is key on the weekends for me. That consists of just enough coffee to get my day started!

Is it just me or are all these colors and images on the packaging an eye-catcher? The packaging just makes my mouth water…

One thing I am excited about is to try these is in my iced coffee when the weather gets warmer here in KC. It really has not felt like Spring here, which is super disappointing.

Head to your nearest Walmart location to purchase the newest creamers added to the Coffee-mate® Creamers family. And head here  for even more inspiration and details about the new Coffee-mate Dessert Creamers!

WHEN I QUIP YOU QUIP WE QUIP

Who knew brushing your teeth could be so much fun? Especially when you have matching ones from Quip! Did you know most people don’t take care of their teeth properly? You either brush too hard, unevenly, not long enough or don’t brush often enough! 

I actually think my dental hygiene got better after dating Andrew no lie. He is ALWAYS brushing his teeth so I had to step up my game LOL.

Quip has different options on the color choice which I really like, I can’t tell you how many times I have forgotten which toothbrush was mine because we had the same colors… I chose the copper metal and Andrew chose the slate metal color. One thing I really like is the nifty dual-use cover that comes with them (not the plastic tube the base that it is in) which makes traveling with your electric toothbrush easier.

Did you know that you should brush your teeth for 2 minutes at a time? The Quip has sensitive vibrations that use a built-in timer to pulse every 30 seconds and turn off after 2 minutes, helping guide a full and even clean.

How cool, you can mount the case to your mirror at home using a micro-suction strip! The subscription actually delivers new tubes of toothpaste as well when you run out.

Quip has made our life easier instead of running to the store every so often to go pick up new toothbrushes we get new brush heads delivered right to our door!

Dentist recommends that you change your bristles after 3 months because bristles become worn out and ineffective at cleaning. Why not pay $5 with free shipping for your bristles to be automatically refreshed.

Go getcha- self a Quip toothbrush!

You do you! | Monday Mantra

You do you! You heard me, I didn’t hesitate! Do you ever feel like you don’t do enough for yourself? I have been in a rut lately with life. Trying to figure out where I belong and what my purpose is. Of course that all can’t just fall into your lap- or for some of you maybe it already has! But for me, it has not, so I have begun to do more for myself to figure out what makes me feel more at ease and a better person.

First I found a new hobby- Reading. I shared with you all on my Instagram that I picked up the book “Big Magic” and I am hooked! I haven’t gotten to deep into it to tell you what it is all about but what I have gained thus far is Elizabeth Gilbert, the author is a badass. The book is already so motivating.

Secondly, I started working out! It has been 6 months, let me repeat SIX MONTHS since I have completed an actual work out due to my back being unstable. It felt amazing. I started working out at Barre3 Kansas City- Barre is a core and balance workout that is low impact but man I felt the burn! This past week I took 2 classes and I felt at peace after each class and my back felt some release.

Thirdly I surprised Andrew this weekend with a day date! I sometimes get comfortable with us and our relationship and forget to be spontaneous. I took Andrew to the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art where they currently have the “Through the Eyes of  Picasso” exhibit. Andrew has a deep love for art so I knew he would be tickled. Spontaneity is key in relationships- I need to step up my game! HA ( so this is me trying, baby steps!)

Lastly, I went and got a massage yesterday- mind you I won this massage but have told myself that I need to start doing a ritual once a month to pamper myself. Why? Because I deserve it. You deserve it!

These steps of finding yourself may be different, but find that sense of peace where you can just take a deep breath and relax. I have found that it not only is going to create more patience for myself but be good for my overall work life, my relationship and friendships.

I hope you all have a great Monday, take my advice. You do you!

Luther Nash Turns 1

Happy Birthday Luther Nash. I cannot believe you are one already, where has the time gone?

Words really can’t describe how much I love this little man.  I never thought I would be that crazy dog mom, well I am now.

A few things about Luther:

  • He comes from Nashville, TN (hence Luther Nash)
  • His mom and dad are Holly & Winston
  • He loves belly rubs
  • Would eat peanut butter all day if we let him
  • loves to play catch
  • enjoys dancing
  • hogs the bed
  • loves to play with Blake
  • enjoys trips to Michigan
  • Not a huge fan of water but has went in the lake and pool last summer
  • He gets jealous when drew gives me attention (super protective)
  • loves to chase birds and squirrels
  • loves to go to daycare and play with all his little/ big friends

I went and got him this adorable party hat from Pink Antlers Studio where the kind gal made him the number one and put it on the top! She went out of her way, and I thought that was so sweet of her.

We got Luther’s sweet treats from Three Dog Bakery Leawood. If you are looking for a quick place to pick up your dog a fun treat head there. They also have many treats and toys.
