Motivate Me, Monday

Sipping my coffee this Monday morning I started to think about all the things I had to do today. Return RedBox dvd’s, do the dishes, e-mails, etc. The list won’t ever end. Etc. will always be at the end of the list. So I type in “Motivate Me” on YouTube & after some digging, found a good one. This video is better than my cup of coffee this morning, I hope it helps enrich your morning as well 😊



Stop SNOOZING!! 3 Things That Get Me Out of Bed in the Morning:

1) Kathie Lee & Hoda


These ladies are always laughing and in a great mood! I DVR the 4th hour of NBC’s The Today Show the day before, find the play button through my sleepy half opened lids, and all of a sudden I am laughing 🙂

Here is a the link to see a clip from the show which happens to be a blend of my favorite things: KLG, a Country Singer, and sarcasm.

Check it out! Trace Adkins on Kathie Lee & Hoda

2) browsing Women’s Fashion on Pinterest

So I am now awake and laughing after hanging out with my “friends”, now I need motivation to get up and actually get out of bed! So I browse Pinterest to get inspired for different outfits. This way I am excited to get up and create a new look!! (umm, This really works for me!)

Find me on there!

Here are some pins from my Style Board:


3) good ol’ Coffee!

I make my coffee with a Coffee Press and an Instant Hot Water Kettle, mmm 🙂 Coffee just tastes better to me in a press. And the instant water kettle is a dream! It boils water in seconds – just pour over your coffee in the french press and Voila! You have gourmet!


$49.95 at Starbucks


~$30 at Tuesday Morning


Starbucks Blonde Coffee $11.95

I love this blend not only for the name, duh!!! But it has a great taste, and is stronger than the dark roast so you can comfortably drink more 😉


I heard you should stop drinking CoffeeMate Creamer b/c it’s not good for you (see article here:

I’ve started using Trader Joe’s Lactose Free Vanilla Creamer and LOVE IT!! It tastes amazing and the perfect thing to top off a great morning!!!
