Rainy Day Survival: Coffee & Coloring

This post contains affiliate links. 



We had gorgeous weather!
Sunny. Warm. Awesome.
Spring had sprung. I knew it had, it said so all over my Facebook feed. But it didn't stay epic for long. Rain and cold air came back this week! Since then, I've had a song stuck in my head that I remember from when I was Pirate's age. I may not be able to find it on youtube; but a couple of decades later, I can still hear it oh-so-clearly!


"It's raining outside and we can't go out to play; what do you like to do in the rain?"

So with it being so cold and wet outside, we opted to stay indoors. We kept ourselves warm and dry by drinking coffee, and coloring! That's right, I said coloring! It seems to be all the rage now. Grown-ups relaxing with their old childhood pastime. In fact, it's such a hit that that coloring book creators have gone wild creating new, grown-up friendly pages in countless themes! But enough of that! The best part of it all was that Pirate and I could do this together. Spending time with this kid is oh-so-important to her little heart and it's oh-so-important to us as a family.

Coloring with Pirate

And if we can spend time together without me having to cross a perilous obstacle course she has designed or hiding under the kitchen sink, I'm all for it!



Because, really. What 32 year old really needs to be under the kitchen sink?!


People get stuck. 

Anyway! We couldn't have picked a better time to be stuck indoors. I was given the opportunity to review an adult coloring book! So we grabbed some pencils, some coffee and the coloring book! Well, technically we printed out some .pdf copies - which, if you're into it, when you buy this coloring book on Amazon, it includes a free .pdf download.

I was really surprised at how much detail there was to this book. It really took some time and effort to color every piece. And if you enjoy coloring, that's a great thing. 

It was nice to just sit and chill
Drink my coffee and color a picture with my girl


Pirate lost interest pretty quickly and flipped her paper over to draw on the blank side, but she is 6 years old. Still, I think it was a win for us! Inexpensive. No back spasms from being stuck under a table. If you're into coloring, be sure to check this out on Amazon. The author has soooooo many more books to choose from!

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:  www.CaffeinatedMelly.com
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!
