Good morning!

I can’t remember the last time I had a Saturday off! Although I don’t have slam dunk, jam-packed Saturday plans (which I kind of love!), I am going to a high school friend’s baby shower to celebrate the up-coming birth of her first! Before that, I’m taking a class at my new favorite cycling studio and will be purchasing something off the registry for said baby shower. Hopefully this local infant and child store will have plenty of options for the last minute shopper!

My sister and brother-in-law are having my brother and his family over for dinner, so I want to stop by for a drink (or two). I haven’t seen my nephews in what seems like weeks, and I want to have some one-on-one time with them before they welcome a new brother or sister very soon!!

I hope everyone enjoys their Saturday!




Liam’s arrival over three years ago!! Oh how time flies…


Blanchard’s Coffee

Good morning! Just popping in to share my new found love for local coffee roaster, Blanchard’s Coffee Co.! I re-discovered this local roaster at one of my favorite little grocery stores, Stella’s Grocery, sister (or brother?!) to Stella’s Restaurant. One day after brunch with a friend, we walked across the street to Stella’s Grocery for a cup of coffee. Go figure, I don’t remember if we ordered coffee with our mimosas, but anyhow, we got the house coffee at the grocery store, and it was DELICIOUS!!

Ever since that brunch date, I have been going back for a cup of coffee as a “treat” on days off or as an extension of my lazy Sunday mornings. With hints of cocoa, caramel, and almond maybe? It’s a must-try if you like coffee.

The other day, while treating myself to the aforementioned coffee, I asked the barista what kind it was, and she kindly shared with me that it was Blanchard’s! Of course the exact name of the roast escaped me as I immediately went looking for it at my local Martin’s, but alas, I purchased my own Blanchard’s blend, that is equally delicious.

Enjoying it this morning with my newest mug from Stella’s Grocery, purchased before the holidays, and I was write about it here.


If you’re interested, you can learn more about Blanchard’s here. I see that they have even collaborated with the new world-class Quirk Hotel! Must go there and then must buy this blend. I’m swooning over the packaging!


I can bet this probably won’t be the last post you see from me about coffee 🙂

Have a great day!
