Two things... today... that came right in time... right when i needed them.

I was so dog tired... barely hanging on it felt...
when the package from Rudabeggas hit my front porch.
Come to mama i thought.

I had never tried or been a drinker of cold coffee drinks.
Have lots of friends who do... for me... it just always seemed weird.
That is until very recently.

It was late in the day... a few months back...
i wasn't in the mood for a hOt cup of coffee...
so... i decided to TRY an iced latte.
(couldn't hurt right)
Um.......................... yUm... CONVERTED.
It was so good!
Not what i expected.
At all.
Don't know what i thought... but i tell ya... IT'S THE LITTLE THINGS isn't it.

This opened up a whole new coffee world!
:)

After that experience...
"hey this iced coffee thing is kind of cool"...
the first thought that came to mind...
Tiffany... and her amazing photos!
Have you seen her photography?
She seems to always be sipping on a jar full of pretty.
Makes me want to eat & drink whatever she's cooking.

She & her hubby are quite the team.
They love good food... love quality products... and they love their coffee.
From that passion... came Rudabeggas

I've been using their body butter & solid fragrance for some time...
today... i got to try their artisan coffee.
It was JUST the thing i needed.
Just the burst of refuel... just the treat... to get me through the rest of the day.

I love how you can mix their concentrate hot or cold.
Whatever your mood... go for it.
And y'all... i mixed it up cold today!
:)

The other just in time thing today?
Hair color!
Y'all... my grays were OUT OF CONTROL.

Getting to get a fresh cut & color...
while sipping on some fancy brew... out of the perfect wide mouth mason...
A GIFT!

i think as much as Gretel likes to ACT like she "needs her space" away from Riley...
COME ON... look at them!  she loves it too!
