At Home

Wow! It seems like it’s been months since I've blogged last.

We moved into our own apartment in the beginning of December, and it has been amazing! I'm really loving being a wife and a mom; I know that I've been one for a while, but having our own place really makes it feel all the more real and actual. I don't know if that makes sense, but having our own place for me to take care of is just a whole new exciting thing!

People keep asking me when I'm going back to work. I tend to feel pressured to feed them a fluffy answer about just not working until Pirate's older, or make an excuse as to why I'm not a "contributing part of society". The thing is this, being a helper to my husband and taking care of our child and our house is my priority. And it's not because I "have to", and it's not a "you've made your bed, now sleep in it" type of thing.
God has given me the privileged duty of being a wife and mom, and for me that trumps all other vocations or pursuits. Taking care of my family and our house is my act of obedience and worship to God. I feel that the home is where I'm supposed to be. It's where I have a heartfelt desire to be. I believe that God is blessing us for that and He faithfully provides for our every need.

I'm reading a book right now called, Biblical Womanhood in the Home, it's published by Crossway books. It is really worth checking out. It better articulates a lot of what I feel and am trying to say about this topic. I haven't finished it yet so I won't elaborate too much more than that. :)
Alright, it's time for me to sign off, and get some stuff done.

I look forward to sharing with you the stuff that we do! I hope everyone has a great weekend.


  1. Way to go Mel! There is no greater privilege than caring for your husband and children. May God give you His grace and wisdom as you do so. I love you.

We Tried Decaf: Five Cups Coffee!

This post contains affiliate links. We are not decaf drinkers here.
In fact, the last time I bought decaf coffee was years ago. And it wasn't for me. We had company over and we were trying to be considerate. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure decaf is super. But, can someone explain the goodness to me? I mean, sure. Coffee is coffee. And with enough cream and sugar, I suppose I could drink anything. (I don't really mean that!) But really.

Then, along came Five Cups Coffee.  It came to me in a magical Amazon Prime box. In case you don't know, "I offer free shipping" is a great pick-up line.

My thoughts were something like this: Um, it's decaf. But it's apparently special. I mean, it says so on the package, "The World Finest Coffee". (That's a direct quote.)

A roasting date of September-something was written on the back of the package, as well as some good coffee making directions. I didn't get a picture of that - oops.

Inside, whole bean…

Moon Pie Coffee!

This post contains affiliate links.As the name of this blog implies, I love coffee. In fact, my entire family loves coffee. It's a main food group. It's a sickness. I might as well be a Gilmore Girl. Mama needs the morning cup of life. 

We were walking through the grocery store the other day when something amazing jumped right off the shelf and into my cart! Of course, it was COFFEE! 
I looked down at the package:
 M O O N   P I E   C O F F E E
I had no other choice than to buy it. It seemed that I was put in this very grocery store for such a time as this! 
Let me start by saying that the state while I was raised in is, geographically speaking, a southern state. I was not raised in The South. Apparently, there is a difference that even google recognizes on its first page! 
My point? I did not grow up with Moon Pies! Mr. Incredible and Pirate on the other hand, having been born and raised here in the South have the experience that I lack. We had to try it! 
As soon as we got home, Pi…

We've MOVED!

Exciting things are happening here at Caffeinated Melly. One of which is a new blogging platform. Blogger has been great, honest! But it is time for something new!
Our new home:
We're still moving in, so bare with us as we haven't finished unpacking and settling in yet. We're still in the process of transferring our content over to our new platform, but ALL OF OUR NEW STUFF WILL BE HERE.

You can still visit this page, it's not going anywhere and I'll have a link set up in the menu bar.

Thanks for sticking with us and I hope you enjoy the new fun we have in store!
