Monday Morning Coffee Break

Coffee Break

 

Good morning loveys!  I hope everyone had a good weekend.  We had a great Sunday afternoon; the lovely Camille from Planning Pretty threw a “Party for Autumn” at their home, and we had a fantastic time chatting and eating the delicious food that Camille and her husband prepared for everyone.  Emily (Sparkle Meets Pop), Melissa (Serving Seconds), Ana (Fluxi on Tour), and Meredith (Not Merely Living) were all in attendance as well, and it was great meeting up with all of these delightful and creative women.  Now, onto our Monday coffee break!

 

I have a Buzzfeed addiction.  So naturally, this post about things only 90s teenage girls would understand was calling my name.

Do you love Disneyland?  Then check out these little known facts about the happiest place on Earth.

Joy the Baker has been doing a fantastic series on the science of baking.  Here, she talks about large eggs and their purpose in baked goods.  Check out the rest of the series if you get a chance.

Sarah at The Sugar Hit has been doing a series of Japanese foods, starting with homemade gyoza.  I made these the next night; delish.

And finally, this year for the first time I am participating in The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap.  A huge cookie exhange amongst like-minded bloggers, where all donations go to helping Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, an organization that commits to fund new treatments designed for fighting pediatric cancers.

Good morning loves!  I hope everyone’s weekend was spectacular.  We celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary (wow, time flies!) and went to the wedding of a very good friend.  It was great, seeing all of our old college friends again; just a really wonderful celebration.

 

The New York Times did an excellent piece on hidden disabilities and the issues these people face in the workplace.

Have you noticed everyone going bonkers for the return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte?  Well, let yourself get excited about some of these not-so-common coffee drinks to break you out of your morning rut.

Speaking of fall, this potato-topped short rib pot pie is just the thing to welcome in the cooler months.

While we’re at it, this charred brussel sprouts carbonara will do the trick as well.

Finally, this story about an 103 year old man who dines out every night will warm your heart.
