Staying awake for it

So, you all know how much I love Caribou Coffee, right? They have super good caramel skim lattes, the staff is always really nice and helpful – the regular ones in Mankato know my order and ask about Luke. . .actually I am not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing – my husband would say that I totally go there too much! Winking smile

Anyway, their logo is “Life is short. Stay awake for it.” And then their follow up to that is “What do you stay awake for?” Such a good question! Here are some of the things I stay awake for. . .

Baby snuggling

Early morning body pump classes –> when I am subbing for the 5:30am class!


a good book – my most recent good read – the “Uglies” series by Scott Westerfeld

play time with Abby – her puppy energy continues even at age 8!

Dessert with my husband … and good cupcakes!

  1. That is an awesome snuggle pic! Frameworthy! I too stay awake for snuggles & giggles & all-out dance parties with my oldest. And definitely dessert! And while I really love my sleep, I don’t mind getting up early for long hikes or my fav local races. Thanks for another great Friday post – they always make me smile!

  4. We don’t have a Caribou coffee where I live but I love the slogan. I stay awake for a good book and over-the-top desserts (I’m very picky). I also like to get my exercise in first thing in the morning, so I sometimes have to give up fun in the evening so that I can get a good workout in, but I think you have me beat with your 5:30am body pump classes!

  7. I love the idea of this post! I stay awake for snuggle time with Bentley, workouts, studying (sadly) and long talks with friends. I hope Bentley continues to be as energetic as he is now!
