Afternoon Pick-Me-Up

When 3:00 arrives, nap time is over and my girls begin to stir. They're always so energized--but mommy? Not quite! Sometimes I don't think I'll make it to dinner time.

To remedy this, I make myself an afternoon latte. It's become a necessity, in fact. Coffee is a beautiful thing. I couldn't resist taking this picture today. Hooray for coffee!

My current favorites:
hazelnut
Irish creme
vanilla

My favorite brews:
Peet's Sumatra or Espresso Forte
Seattle's Best French Roast
Starbucks Italian Roast

I'm right there with you! With two little ones, I know I couldn't make a day without my coffee:)

I need to put this into my daily routine. Maybe start about 15 minutes before I think the kids will wake from their naps so the caffeine will have kicked in. ;)

Bummer, I can't have caffine after noon or I'll be up half the night...sounds so yummy as a naptime treat!

I truly believe that there HAS to be a coffee shop in HEAVEN!!! What a lovely picture to get me through the rest of my day! Thank you so much for sharing!! Sometimes I sneak coffee at 8 o'clock at night so that I can just keep my little eyes open a little bit longer to finish my to-do's for the day...

Coffee in heaven? I'm all for that because it sure doesn't like me on this side. I love it, but have stick to tea these days. Have a cup, or two, for me!
