Happy Memorial Day! 


I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful weekend. 
Ours was a quiet one. We had some fun things planned after we found ourselves at the Dollar Tree a couple of weeks ago. Going down this aisle of patriotic decor, it suddenly felt like summer! I had items jumping in my buggy left and right. 

Of course, that was before the rain hit. And we had to re-write our weekend. It happens. Not to worry, we may revisit this fun stuff for Independence Day!

And while we didn't have a cookout, and our decorations are still on the kitchen table; we didn't let that rain dampen our spirits! 

Pirate had a little fun dressing up as a patriotic little fairy. We got these wings and headband for $1 each at Dollar Tree. 

In the few minutes we had without rain today, we played tag and fell in the wet grass. And if you've ever played tag with a child who has been cooped up all day, you know there is no winning. Ain't nobody got energy like that!



We spent most of our day playing inside and 
watching Netflix. Our sweet Memorial Day came to a close with some Hot Dog Pie for dinner! It's a favorite here, there are never leftovers. 


And that was our Memorial Day! Comment below, we'd love to hear from you! Tell us how your weekend was!

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!
