SPT: Pick-Me-Up

Lelly has been wondering, "What do you turn to when you need a pick-me-up?"

When I am bleary eyed in the morning or dragging a bit in the late afternoon, or whenever I just need a pick-me-up I visit my latest BFF for a fresh cup of joe. Have you seen these one cup wonders? It's as easy as setting my happy Fiesta mug down, plopping in a coffee pack (called K-cups) and pushing a cute little button. See?

No filters, coffee measuring, grounds spilling, or half a pot wasted because it didn't taste fresh anymore, etc.

A fresh, hot cup of coffee is ready in seconds! Plus you can have a variety of flavors and strengths without buying several cans of coffee. I keep a cute little glass container filled with several K-cups next to the fabulous machine.

The caffeine itself provides a boost I'm sure, but to me there is something comforting about enjoying a cup of coffee, and that is a pick-me-up too. Especially coffee with girlfriends. Any chocolate would not be turned away either.

I mix in a bit of my favorite creamer and rest my spoon on my cute little spoon rest I picked up from Maine and I instantly feel better. See?


What do YOU do for a pick-me-up?

SPT side note: I seem to always relate these to music. This week The Rolling Stones" Start Me Up" popped into my brain. Appropros, no?

  1. I have always wondered about those individual coffee makers- if it is worth the money etc. This post in itself makes me want to go and get one! The angle on your SP is so great- love it!

  3. You look mighty cute in today's self-portrait. I don't drink coffee, but I can understand the therapeutic feelings involved with holding a mug and sipping something.

  5. I can totally relate and I LOVE that coconut cream flavor of coffeemate. It seems like I can usually only find it at Christmas time though.

  11. This is pathetic and even a little embarassing...I always seem to get a little pick me up after the perfect bubble bath, great slippers that say to the world "go away..sometimes, they even shout it :) and a good magazine, sometimes it's PEOPLE sometimes, Country Cottage for inspiration, sometimes it's US Weekly (that usually means it is a much needed BOOST :)....love your cut little one cup wonder! How awesome!

  12. i sometimes think i'm the luckiest girl to have Hampton Inn Robust coffee literally at my fingertips all day. (sadly, at home, i'm often reduced to reheating yesterday's brew. it's not even worth it!)

    isn't a spoon rest the greatest thing? i feel like i need about a dozen in my kitchen.

    your photo us totally cute!!

  13. i love your picture!!! :) those glasses are super cute. i'm afraid of what coffee could do for me- i'm a little high strung most days so i'd end up like hammy from over the hedge! :)

    i love that you pick a song to accompany these! now i've got it in my head! perfect for wednesday morning! :)

  17. My pick-me-up is a little bit of of the soundtrack from Hairspray, a Snickers candy bar and a Dr. Pepper. This past summer I totally cut out soda from my diet (dr. ordered) so that is my little sneak treat for me when I really NEED it!
