Taking Back My Morning With Seattle’s Best #TakeBackYourMorning

When it comes to mornings, I am selfish. I have always enjoyed “me” time in the morning to leisurely get ready, eat breakfast, and watch the morning news. Mornings were mine and my hubby knew not to throw it off by making pancakes and eggs or asking me to do something that wasn’t planned.

Fast forward 5 years to present day with two kiddos and mornings are no longer mine whether I am working or not. I try hard to not be a fuss bucket because of all that has to get done in the mornings to get the kids to school/ day care and for me to get to work on time. Just thinking about it stresses me out.

Recently I heard about a challenge from Seattle’s Best Coffee [1] to take back my morning. [1]

After giving it much thought, I figured out that giving myself an extra thirty minutes to get control of my mornings may be beneficial for everyone in the family. I started by going to Wal Mart to buy Seattle’s Best Coffee [3]. You can see my adventures here [4]. Each morning I would get up thirty minutes early whether I had to go to work or not. For a week now, I have been getting up an extra thirty minutes in order to have “me” time to include a cup of Seattle’s Best and a cinnamon raisin english muffin.

I thoroughly enjoyed my week and plan to continue. As the summer approaches when I do not enjoy hot coffee any longer, I will switch over to iced coffee or cappuccino and use this recipe found here [6].

If you are struggling in the mornings like I was, join the challenge and take back your morning too!
