Ultimate Coffee Date 3

Hey strangers!

After two weeks of soccer and back to school craziness, it feels so so good to have some down time on the couch, watching MN Gopher football, and getting the chance to catch up with you all.

Today I’m linking up with my friend Nikki and her co-hosts Jill, and Lynda for their Ultimate Coffee Date link up. It’s a great way to catch up and discover new blogs. Definitely one of my favorite posts to write. :)

This morning I was coaching a soccer game, so although it’s no longer morning, it feels like it to me because I actually have the time to relax. And although I’m not currently drinking coffee, I am thinking about making myself a cup of tea. So if we were having coffee (or tea in my case!) this evening, here’s what I would share with you:

If we were having coffee, I would tell you…

that my soccer team is on a four game winning streak! We are currently first in our conference. All of this positive thinking is really paying off. :)

that I attempted (attempted being the key word here!) to make my own almond milk. It wasn’t a complete success, and I will definitely be trying it again now that I’ve learned from my mistakes. However, it was much creamier and way more tasty than the store-bought brands! I used it in these blueberry muffins I made the other week. Mmm mmm.

(Almond) milk, does the body good.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you…

that the reason I’m having tea is because I came down with a nasty head cold. Between the change of schedule with going back to school and having two games this week, it’s been all run and no rest. Now that soccer is over for the weekend, resting up is exactly what I’m doing.

I’ve talked about my love for Source Naturals Wellness Vitamins here before, but the other one of my must-haves for when I’ve come down with a cold is Boiron Coldcalm pills. Yesterday was the first full day of my cold, and by taking these and those wellness vitamins, I’m feeling so much better already!

how much I love doing yoga on our back porch to this view. It’s so quiet and peaceful back there. Especially with all of the cute squirrels running around, playing with one another, and chomping on their food. Yes, I am a squirrel lover. My favorite yoga-at-home app is Yogamazing. Chaz is an awesome instructor and I love that the videos are organized by topic (i.e. yoga for back pain, etc.).

If we were having coffee, I would tell you…

I’ve found a new favorite “breakfast” bar. Not really labeled as a breakfast bar, but it is what I’ve been eating every day for breakfast during the work week. They are called the Perfect Bar. I love that they are gluten-free, free of processed sugars, and have a good amount of protein. The Cranberry Crunch is my favorite so far!

that I’m thinking about making an upcycled t-shirt rug. For those who know me, I’m not really the crafty type. However, since we’ve moved I’ve realized how many friggin t-shirts I have, and need to get rid of. Instead of donating them (let’s be honest, some are just too worn to be donated), making them into rags (already got enough of those), or throwing them (I’m trying to reduce my waste!), I’d like to make them in to this kind of rug. Only problem is, I am not a sewer (my mom, however, does alterations for a living). Think I could rope her into helping me? :)

that life is busy, but good. So much to be grateful for. Every single day.

Ever made your own almond milk? Favorite breakfast foods? Fall crafts you can’t wait to start?

Have a great rest of your weekend all!
