Today was a pretty good day! I enjoyed a day of sleeping in, but I shouldn't have. We are moving the end of April and I have a bunch of boxes laying in our living room/dining room/ kitchen waiting to have our books and dishes put in them. I also was going to spend time in the Word today, but I let my tiredness and Pinterest distract me. I have such a hard time with that! I worked at 11 which was good. It's just hard because you're thinking "Oh! I have all morning!" when in fact unless you get out of bed around 7 or 8, you really don't have all morning. You have to have breakfast, get dressed, do your make-up, etc and before you know it it's 10:45 and you need to leave for work! I told myself that I would go running after work since it has been so gorgeous out! It was 45 degrees today! :) So I finally pushed myself to do it. I'm training for a half-marathon relay (so I only have to do 6.5 miles instead of 13). I have been unning about four miles in training lately. So today I thought I would try running four miles outside. (side note) Nate and I went to a concert with his parents and we got a new CD by Mandisa. I listened to it as I was putting it on my Ipod and I realized that her music is great for running! Today I got to run with my new music and I ran 8 1/2 minute miles! I have not ran that fast in 3 years! My calves are feeling it though. :/ I was really excited!

First Post

I had another blog but it was from about 3 years ago, so I decided I would start up a new one that is more updated. Coffee, Books, Life...why? Well, I am a Barista at the lovely Caribou Coffee. I love to make drinks and see my regulars. I have learned to drink straight black coffee since working there the past 8 1/2 months! My husband, Nate, never thought that day would come. I also love books! My new favorite author is Kate Morton she's written 'The Forgotten Garden', 'The Distant Hours', 'The Secret Keeper' and 'The House at Riverton'. She is like a mystery, history, genealogical author. I have really enjoyed her writing. And finally, Life, I feel like my life is so boring, but I'm hoping once I start blogging regularly that I will realize that my life isn't so boring after all! I mean, I'm married! How boring could that be? :) So here is to my first post!
