I’m Lovin’ It

I have been a slacker blogger!  Thanks for all the good wishes on the half.  We had day 2 of Foot Traffic U today and it was fantastic.

While I’ve been a lazy blogger there’s lots that I’m lovin’, so I thought I’d share.

I’m lovin’ Lululemon bags as lunch bags
These suckers are big enough to hold the 12 pounds of food I bring for lunch AND my water bottle.  I used to use a reusable grocery bag.  This is slightly smaller, and makes me feel less awkward.
It also helps you make friends with other teachers who share your affinity for $12 headbands.

Also lovin’ the Nike Employee Store
That’s just part of the shoe section.  Blew my damn mind.  Huge.  Full of half priced Nike.  Went there this week for an alumni event.  I’m not a sneaker wearer, but I still wanted to buy seven pairs.  Held it in.  Barely.

Shoes I am lovin?
My Danskos.  Can’t lie.  Such teacher shoes.  But unless you enjoy watching chaos erupt you don’t sit when you’re teaching kindergarten. You need comfy shoes.

I’m lovin’ how weird the new kitten is
He’s eating green beans.  What cat eats green beans?

I am lovin’ my EnviroKidz Koala Crisps
In college my mom would send me these in care packages.  It’s organic, so it’s healthier than the cocoa pebbles it tastes like, right?
We almost never eat cereal, but some days you just need a bowl of Koalas.

And to go with my chocolate cereal I’m beyond just lovin’ and am in a relationship with this coffee
We’re registered at Crate and Barrel.  It’s that serious.

It’s Stumptown, cause I’m predictably PDX like that.  I’ve never been picky on coffee.  But Hair Bender has made me a believer.  Stumptown describes it as

Coffees from every major producing region provide the individual components of this complex sweet and savory blend which yields flavors of milk chocolate, caramel, jasmine, meyer lemon, apricot and pineapple.

Did you catch how it says milk chocolate in there?  Milk chocolate.  I’m in love.

Are you picky on coffee?

What are you lovin’ right now?

  1. Seems like we’re diggin a lot of the same things lately – I do the lulu lunchbags, that brand makes some of my favorite cereals, and dont even get me started on how amazing that coffee sounds!

  2. I freaking love your socks. Just had to say!

    I’m not picky on coffee either but lately we’ve been getting lots of crappy ass coffee. I do not like it at all! 😦

  3. I am not super picky with coffee, but I hate Tim Horton’s coffee.

  4. once i got a real job with a real paycheck, i allowed myself to be choosy w/ coffee…bc i could afford the stuff i really liked. i tolerated a lot of crud for many years, but a good cup (or 4) of joe every morning is seriously the only way i can start a day. it makes waking up so lovely. i need some positivity, in form of a dark tasty liquid, even if the day goes to sh*t.

    i’m loving my car seat warmer. and brownies with icing.

  5. Kitteh eatin’ beanz! Lolz!!

    Soooo lucky going to the Nike store. *jealous*

  6. Coffee owns my soul, but I haven’t had it in a little while because of husband’s stupid allergy diet. A good quality coffee is seriously amazing though.

    Right now I love:
    Millet bread
    Almond butter
    Coconut butter
    Baby carrots (like 5 pounds a week love)
    My eyelash curler

  7. Oh how I miss coffee. I had to give it up for health reasons but I do remember having some fantastic coffee by Stumptown. Yum 🙂

    Right now I’m loving cinnamon tea, sweet potatoes (like every day) and your trail mix cookies that I’ve been obsessively making since you posted them a while back. So good!

  8. Danskos are so damn comfy!! What u buy at lululemon?! Anyways I’m loving my easy spirit shoes right now! Don’t judge!

  9. I had a dog once that liked green beans, corn on the cob, and apples. I think she liked the latter two because she could sink her teeth into them. Not sure on the green beans!
