Solid Grounds Coffee Shop

Coloradans love their coffee... I can't confirm this, but I bet we rival our friends of the Pacific Northwest. Even among coffee lovers there is much debate about the best place to sit and sip. The possibilities are nearly endless and at the same time you can find your standard lattes and mochas just about anywhere.

We find ourselves at Starbucks just like everyone else, but our true favorite is a little spot that is unrecognized by most. The Solid Grounds Coffee Shop is found in Littleton and recently expanded their operation to include several meeting rooms and additional seating complete with games for all ages. You will find a cozy fireplace for the cool early mornings or late evenings, and for the warm days of spring and summer you'll love their umbrella shaded deck. And I haven't even mentioned the quality of the food and beverage! Coffee is, of course, the main attraction.

The baristas are talented and the ingredients are top quality. You can get delicious pastries and warm breakfast sandwiches and burittos (locally made). The local made ice cream is yummy too. You'll want to bring a girlfriend with you to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere and engage in some "mommy" conversation. Mornings can be a little hectic, but thanks to the expansion, you can find a seat any hour of the day.

Tell us where your favorite spot is to get that beautiful, steaming cup of bitter smooth goodness.

Give Thanks: Part 4

KEEP READING FOR A GREAT SCENTSY GIVEAWAY!

There is so much to be thankful for, it really is hard to decide what will make these next few posts... but today is an ode to my husband. If there is one thing he loves, it's great smells.

Although great smells come from great cooking, they also come from great candles. Now with kids around candles can feel a little risky, but then came Scentsy. This is a "flameless" candle which is actually kind of a throw back to the scented wax warmers that used a candle. No candles here, just plug in the warmer and the small light bulb does all the work. I'm a fan of the nightlight sized warmers, but the larger Scentsy warmers are quite lovely.

Browse the entire Holiday Collection to find the one perfect for your home or start thinking about gift giving - the combinations are endless! And look at this festive warmer of the month (10% off):


But now we need to talk about fragrance! Silver Bells is the fragrance of the month (also 10% off…

Summer Plan 2012

Is anyone else asking themselves what happened to the last 3 months?? (Maybe you're wondering what happened to the last 3 years or just the last 3 days... at any rate you know how I feel, mom.)

Today was my kids' last day of school for the year. I'm sitting on the precipice of another summer. This was my first year of "freedom" - two kids in school full time. It felt good. But as predicted I packed every possible moment with housework, volunteering, writing, and working at my "real job" (ie. the one I actually get paid to do).

And it makes me wonder, how will I ever scale back and just enjoy the lazy days of summer?? How can I embark on a summer of fun and adventure without feeling like I'm staring into the abyss? I've done an unofficial survey of other moms I know and there's a mix of emotions. Some are ecstatic to have kids at home this summer; others are dreading it. I have a funny feeling the first group isn't telling the whole truth…

Mom Spot: Progressive Pioneer

Here is another blog I've come across in recent weeks. She has gorgeous pictures and her post yesterday was truly fantastic.

"Maine is pretty rainy in the spring.  And I lived in Oregon for awhile and it defines rainy.  So, a little rain rarely puts me in a gray mood.  In fact, this rainy, rainy spring we've been having here in Utah has actually made me feel quite cheerful!  Each rainy day has felt like something of a celebration."
