beans & a true buddy...

we found them just like this...
fast asleep (well one of them) in between the back cushion of a chair!

i think as much as Gretel likes to ACT like she "needs her space" away from Riley...
COME ON... look at them!  she loves it too!

and speaking of sleep... okay i see the correlation...
i NEED coffee to wake up from the SLEEP i didn't get...  I need Ambien! :)
curiosity...
do you take the time to grind in the morning?
actually scoop AND grind BEFORE you brew!


It's hAppY go lucky hump day!
YES!
Here's to a FULL brewed... FULL of goodness... kind of day!

TERI said...

Very sweet picture. That would def make a cute Christmas card!

As for the grinding of coffee beans? I do love to do that, but sometimes I am so groggy and it just seems like one more step. I often grind enough for two days....

I know "they" say that fresh ground beans make such good coffee, but I add so much creamer and sweeteners that I am not sure I can taste the dif.

Thank You Jesus for the Coffee bean! Oh, yeah! And of course the Cocoa Bean! What would us girls do?

My husband grinds every morning! He says it's better that way.. I don't drink coffee so I don't know.

Do you have trouble sleeping?! I do too!!

LuLu & Co said...

I am jealous she looks so cuddly and comfy and adorable...I have felt exhausted all day and wish I could hide behind the sofa cushions for a nap!!

I grind in the morning and the afternoon, anytime I make a cup of coffee I do. I tastes so darn good. Instead of a nap thats what got me through today!!!

Megan said...

MGF said...

No time for grinding for me. I usually try to set everything the night before. Quicker delivery in the morning.

edie+steve said...

Hi sweet Carissa,
I was showing someone your beautiful site and jewelry and just realized that I (of course) picked the most expensive piece and I heartily apologize. I would be honored with any of your lovely pieces!!! Thanks so much!
XOXO Edie

I do the ground coffee thing now - to save some time.

Riley and Gretel are soo cute - I love that you can see the little veins in her eyelids in that pic.

i love plum said...

she looks like a kiss from an angel...at least what i imagine one to look like. don't you just love when they're just THAT tired that they can fall asleep any old way. ruby fell asleep with a pretzel in her mouth not too long ago...sweetness. xo

I grind every morning!

THE Stephanie said...

OMG That is the cutest picture I have ever I seen. I think it may be cuter than pics of my own kids. Sad. I want to bottle it.

Sarah said...

Oh, I just adore grinding my coffee each morning. (Or every other....I get lazy sometimes and do a little ahead for the next day.) It smells so good and tastes much better!

I wish my kids would fall asleep...anywhere! I can count on one hand finding a child asleep somewhere or having one fall asleep on me. :-)

Look at those gorgeous eyelashes! Oh my goodness, your child is adorable.

Yorkies are my favorite dogs of all time.
