monday morning coffee

good morning friends!
and happy monday!
hahaha is it even possible to be happy on a monday? not sure. but i’m hoping for the best!

i hope you had a nice relaxing weekend.
friday, i took myself out on a date night.
and it was ah-mazing.
i took a trip up to new bern (it’s this cute little town about a half hour away) and did some shopping and errand running.
my first stop was at michael’s.
i didn’t really go in needing anything but, of course, i came out with wonderful things.
paint was 5/$2 so i obviously had to stock up on all my favorite colors!
(i’ll be doing some odds and ends painting projects this week so i’ll make sure to post pictures!)
after michael’s i went to harris teeter. it’s a local grocery store that carries a great selection of organic and other specialty items…kind of like a whole foods for all my mid-westerners reading this! ps- hi!!!
the marine and i, well mostly i, am trying very hard to eat healthy but it sure does cost more.
i spent $40 on three bags of groceries! a little insane but most of it was delicious produce so I guess that makes it okay.
i also bought quinoa which is pretty expensive but i’m totally stoked to cook with it.
making a dish with it tonight…i’ll do a review on it tomorrow!
my last stop was at fro yo 101.
and it was perfect.
the sun was shining, my mix of french vanilla/angel food cake/strawberry fro yo was enhanced by the graham cracker crumbs, cheesecake bites, fresh strawberries and marshmello topping that i added on top. doesn’t that just sound amazing?!
what to you get on your fro yo?
fro yoyum!
(ps- the braid is so my new favorite summer hair do. so simple and chic!)

there really wasn’t anything else worth reporting about my weekend.
poor j was sick so we just hung out at home.
he did, however, make an absolutely fabulous breakfast for me sunday morning.
how in the world did i get so lucky?!

time to get back to my coffee. i’m absolutely nothing without it!
have a great week dear followers.

lately on instagram...
it is most certainly puppy love ❤ just be here with me. 
signed: the moon. the stars. your still-hot-cup-of-coffee. your daughter. your son. your spouse. your heart. the green grass. the wild flowers. the waters you long to swim in. the color yellow. the color blue. your favorite poem. your favorite blanket. the wind in your hair. the waves on the ocean. the mountain air. your dad. your mom. the rain. the ice-cream cone. the butter sizzling with garlic in the frying pan. the grocery clerk with the sad, kind eyes. postcards waiting to be sent. the city squirrel. the county squirrel. jupiter. the photo album. your grandma's rosary. your favorite song. ink and paper. your best friend. the money in your wallet. the fork in your hand. brushes and paint. downward facing dog. the color turquoise. the almost invisible shade of pink. god. the skyline. the earth beneath your feet. a hammock. the shade of a giant tree. this moment, right here, now. your bones. your belly laugh. your breath. your breath. your breath. (quote from pinterest) a short list of things i love: america, cocktails, red lips, my chalkboard, grilled food but most importantly long weekends spent with my loved ones. happy birthday america! thanks for giving us the day off to celebrate 🍻
