When Your Coffee Needs Coffee


I don't think I could imagine a morning where I needed coffee more. Anyone else not a fan of Daylight Savings time when you have to spring forward?  I don't think anything could make a Monday appear worse ... it was dark during carpool +  it was 37 + it was raining.  No one was excited about greeting the week this morning, and most definitely not me. I dropped them off and then headed for the nearest Starbucks to make sure my coffee had extra coffee to battle the crazy day. 

Dark + Cold + Rain = the trifecta of blech ... 




Since I will most likely be needing extra coffee for a few weeks to help my body adjust I am figuring I am not the only one needing the extra help in the morning.  In the fall I posted a how to for setting up a morning coffee bar and I feel like today is the perfect day for a re post. I highly recommend setting it up the night before, with the exception of fruit and yogurt if you add it to the mix.  You can prep it and leave it in the refrigerator until you need to pull it out in the morning. 


I love knowing my coffee is waiting for me in the morning, but I am sure I am not the only one. Setting up a coffee bar with all of my favorites helps me mentally prepare for the following day.  The kids grab food and either milk or juice (if it super cold they request hot tea) and I can do the same and add in my morning coffee.  It is just like anything else I prepare for the night before ... any effort I put in to prepare always makes me feel so much more successful the next day. 



Happy Monday ... may your coffee come with an extra shot! ☕☕
