My youngest is always the first to wake me with his begging for a cup of milk.  I usually walk like a zombie at 5 am and then he’s off to sleep for hopefully another hour.  I then rush around the house getting us situated for the day.  The stress of my mornings wears me out before my day even gets half way through.  I am ready to take back my mornings and start my days off right.

Taking back my morning Seattle’s Best Coffee, Walmart, Take back my morning, BreakfastI headed to Walmart to prepare for our new week. Shopping for a few staple items, garden supplies and a special morning treat for myself.  I love croissants and decided  to reward myself with me time in my garden.  We have had beautiful mornings getting in the 70’s.  With Seattle’s Best on rollback, I was lucky enough to find a bag of Medium dark & rich Seattle’s Best Coffee.

My tips for taking back my Mornings.

Get on a schedule

kids bathed and fed by 8pm.  This stops all the commotion and play time is over.  They are allowed to read books, watch a show or help me get prepared for the following day.   But I refuse to give in to play time.

In the meantime I can straighten up, clean the kitchen, get clothes washed, dried and prepare for the next day.

  • Set clothes out for myself and boys.
  • Have our homeschool lessons ready to go.
  • Have our meal plan for the following day set.
  • Have a to do list for the following day set, so we aren’t rushing around trying to figure out what needs to be done.

As soon as I put the kids to bed, I spend no more than an hour up.  Usually my husband and I watch one of our favorite DVR’ed shows, then to bed I go.  I hate regretting my late nights the next day.  I am making it a point to get in 8 hours of sleep.


 A cup of medium dark and rich Seattle’s Best Coffee with a splash of vanilla creamer is my favorite morning pick me up.

A 5 am wake-up call for milk turns into an hour of me time.  My little guy goes right back to sleep and then off to make myself a cup Seattle’s Best Coffee, a croissant and enjoy an hour to sit in my garden with my iPad.  This has become my  favorite part of my day.

  1. You mornings sound really similar to mine! I need to start going to bed earlier, too.

  2. My cat wakes me up about 3 times even before the sun is about to rise..lemme in, lemme out…climbs up the door, open the door she runs. Howls at the door…what is sleep? Anyone want a cat?

  3. Blind Assessment: Reader “Siehata” nominated a “morning blend” from Seattle’s Best Coffee, testifying that SBC “has been a favorite of mine for years. Better than Millstone or even the over-priced burnt Starbucks.” I couldn’t find a Seattle’s Best morning blend, so I picked Saturday’s Blend, figuring that Saturdays have mornings, maybe better mornings than the other days of the week. I found it crisply roasty (though most definitely not burned), with pleasantly dry, bittersweet chocolate tones. For me it hit the sweet spot of dark roasted coffees, but displayed a limited range of aromatics and a lean body. Perhaps it had sat in its bag too long.
