Splurge on Something

There's a long standing morning date at my house: Me, the Mr. & some coffee. Every single day we talk about what's on the agenda for the day, hash out ideas for projects, and sometimes just gab about absolutely nothing. It's that time each morning we spend keeping everything flowing smoothly around our home. So when I signed on to do a series with Bluebird, they asked me to splurge on one thing we normally wouldn't buy... and I had no problems coming up with the perfect thing.

Since we love our coffee as much as the time we spend together, it made sense to finally upgrade our basic coffee maker to something a little more special, so we splurged on a fancy new, k-cup using, one cup at a time maker of awesomeness. Yeah.... I'm kind of in love. 

What's the point of this post? Well it's all about treating yourself as well as you treat others. When guest come into your home, you set the best China, pull out all the stops with your very best recipes, light candles and clean like HGTV is showing up next week. Even if you don't do all of that every day for your own family, you can do something a little more special that affects your every day life. That's why we chose coffee. Funny how something so small can actually mean so much. 

Now... if you'll excuse me, I hear the sweet sounds of another cup calling my name :) Well, that and the apple fritter bread from Tarjay - it's delish!

*I partnered with Bluebird Financial for this post*


  1. Awe, what a great post, Gina. It is important to treat yourself every once in a while. :)

    Merry Christmas, sweet friend!

  2. I am so jealous Gina..I want one of those coffee machines so badly I can taste the coffee from those tiny little cups right deserve it for all the hard work you do!!..Merry Christmas!!

  3. Awww - I love the part about you and your mister meeting over coffee each morning. You both deserve that coffee maker and I'm so glad you got it for yourselves!

  4. That is a wonderful reminder, Gina! I try to do that around our home, but sometimes you find yourself slipping into the "way-easier" mode and need a little nudge in the right direction. Thank you!

    Have a great Christmas!

  5. I think it's so special that you spend that part of the morning with each other.
    Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas and all the best in the New Year!
