Progress Happens Slowly Sometimes

I have been absent... absent from life, absent from college life, absent from employment and absent from the blogging hemisphere!

And now I must come back to reality.... I am trying desperately to re-configure this gosh awful page! If you are one of my 8 followers who may actually like to read about my mundane and boring life....You may be in luck because I fully intend on re-vamping this website and blogging daily at some point...
Until then I leave you with this.......

MMMM.... pictures of cookies! Because although I have been absent from many things, I refuse to forget about eating cookies!

Saturday Sensation

Found the cutest gladiator sandles yesterday at the Maxx.. I screamed for joy when I put them on my feet and not only were they highly a-d-o-r-a-b-l-e but they were super comfy!

I needed something slightly more metallic in my wardrobe since I always just wear seem to throw on the usual suspects. ~brown, black or grey~ sandles and this summer I figured a change was in order.. Who knew it would come at a $24.99 pair of Impo's...

While fixin' up the sandles for their photo shoot.. I glanced over to find the uber spoiled fur butt pouting on the couch... "Do you want to go for a walk?"... And that same little fur butt went darting to the front door..

And it was soooo... walked, sniffed, pranced and allowed her hair to gently blow in the spring breeze.. And all was well with the world!

A trip to the coffee store made mommy happy as well! Iced Lattes on a warm spring morning seem to always have the same effect on me.. Pure Bliss.. Had to couple the iced latte with one of my homemade bluberry streusel muffins I made for the hubby's fishing trip this morning,,, But carefully stowed away for my own private consumption..
MMMMM... look at those crumbles... They taste as good as they look, trust me!

And so at the end of the morning, the dog was happy, I was happy and the latte was happy to be paired along side such a hottie!

And now comes the fun part... Doing my dishes, laundry and the rest of my maid-ly duties! And maybe just maybe the trek might make it's springtime appearance this evening...

Frustration Station

Savored some ultra fluffy pancakes this morning with bluberry syrup and reddi-whip.. Sugary yet sooooo delicious.. Hubby enjoyed also....

Organized a few coupons on the new dining room table...

Been trying to transfer my new header as well as format to this blog.. I accidentally erased my old formatting when I was cleaning BLOG house a few days back. And now my once somewhat interesting blog is boring boring boring....

In the meantime, I will continue to post until I can get this Blog Drama worked out!

Coffee Shop Cutie

Hubby called and needed to take a 2 hr ride away to deliver some important business papers for work so he asked for a co-pilot..

I was all game as long as the trip included a stop at a coffee shop to get an espresso! So after googling the area Elkhart, Indiana I found a list of coffee shops to choose from. I was a total dork-o when I called all of them to assure that they did indeed make Specialty Coffee Drinks. (Many times before I would arrive to a coffee shop and find that they had more baked goods than espresso choices)

The ride was pleasant but the little coffee shop on what appeared to be an old little road was even more FANTASTIC...

The Daily Grind .... with the OPEN sign fully lite to my suprise!
Outside of the coffee shop were some little butterflies and some highly creative writings.
Inside was a cozy and warm coffee shop with an adorable couch which nested some bulls-eye hippie pillows.

Twirling thinga-magiggies (shaped like flowers) hanging from the ceiling. A beautiful mural on the wall... I couldn't help but stand and look at it while the barista coated my English Toffee Mocha with fluffy whip cream.

Sweet barista, cozy place and a creamy ULTRA smooth iced mocha... This has to be my number 1 coffee shop in Indiana.. The Daily Grind you have my heart..
