One Cappuccino too Many

The other morning I decided tit would be nice to have a warm coffee drink for breakfast.  The temperature had swung from 50’s back to the 30’s with rain, rain, and freezing rain.  I needed a warm up, something to keep me going in the dreary spring.  On my way to work I stop at Starbucks, the only place open at 5 am besides McDs, and ordered a tall cappuccino and a veggie breakfast sandwich.  I had to eat something with the coffee!

Later at work and about half a cappuccino down, I was bouncing around in my chair.  Caffeine!!  Normally I have coffee drinks in the afternoon to help get me through the rest of the day.  I started to remember why I don’t have caffeine in the morning.  By 8:30 am, two and a half hours at work, I’d completed all the work I had for the day and started  getting bored with siting at my desk.  I decided to get up from my desk and walk over to the area where my other co-workers sit and talked to them.  My team lead know right away that I must have had coffee this morning because I was too happy for being at work.  That made me realize its great to work with people who get to know you. OK, back on the story, I spent the entire work day ready to complete any new work that came my way.  Just sitting at my desk  for  8 hours with way too much caffeine.

So lesson learned, no caffeine for me before work.  I’ll save all my cappuccino and latte dreams for the weekend.

Outfit of the week – New Work Dress

I have to admit I’m a little nervous with this post because instead of a fashion board, it’s an outfit that I’m wearing.

The dress is comfy, fits great, and looks professional enough that I can wear it to work…. Once the weather warms up and stays above 35 for more than 2 days.

I was wondering if my husband would ever take the picture.

Pepper, he insisted he to be in pictures

Pepper and meNow that his picture is being taken, he doesn’t look so happy.

The bracelets I have on are from Pura Vida, I wear these 2 whenever my brother is deployed.  The are very durable, I’ve had them on this time about 3 months straight.

Maybe I’ll do more outfits instead of fashion boards, if it gets warm out.

Weekend links

The weekend is finally here.  These are some articles I’ve read over the week that are interesting reads.  Enjoy!

This girl was suspended from school because her hair was an unrealistic shade of red. I think the schools should focus a bit more on education and security than the red shade of one’s hair.

Bitter Barista Fired – Even though you say something outside of work on your personal time, it can still get you fired. Especially if it is about your work.

Boyfriend’s bald tribute – This article is just sweet. It reminds you that people are caring and loving of each other.

Adoptive Mom’s newborn Photo shoot – This is adorable, I hope people see this and consider doing this for their adoptive children and maybe consider adopting older children.

iWatch – This is interesting to me, being the geek and owner of a number of Apple products. I don’t know if I would get one, I guess it would depend on what it did and the price.  It has to be practical for me to justify purchasing it.

Russia Meteoroid hit – If you woke up on friday morning and did not see a meteor or all the windows blow out around you then you are having a good day.

Water marble nails – This looks like something fun to try, when I have a bit of time to do my nails.

A quick 5 minute makeup routine – For the busy or (in my case) lazy person’s quick makeup routine.  I would also put on some mascara.

Have a great weekend and relax.  Be happy you are alive.

Thankful for – Nov 29

Today I am thankful for caffeine  because without it I would still be sleeping.  For me caffeine is not an everyday thing, usually I have no issues waking up in the morning and getting to work.  But on mornings like today, caffeine is a miracle!  Not too much caffeine, just 1 cup of coffee with breakfast and maybe a cup of green tea at lunch.  Just enough to kick my energy up to be productive.

Hmm…. today looks like it might be a 1 cup coffee and 3 cups of green tea, it’s only 7:15 am!

Outfit – My normal Day-to-Day clothes

This is not a dream outfit this week.  This outfit pretty much reflects what I wear everyday for work.  It is boring and simple and typical of what most people at my job wear.  Some days I feel un-sunny due to the clothes I wear for work and some days it is comforting to have a ‘uniform’ to just mindlessly put on.  At 4:30 am mindless outfits are nice.
