Lavazza Coffee

If you know me, you will know that I have a serious love affair with coffee. Like, we need each other to survive. I mean, we have a regular coffee pot, a Keurig, and a french press sitting out on the kitchen counter all the time. That's a serious coffee addiction, my friends.

Since my love of coffee is forever, I've teamed up with Lavazza to taste test some of their most delicious coffee flavors. Lavazza is an Italian based coffee company that has been grinding out black magic since the late 1800's. This coffee company specializes in drip coffee, whole bean espresso, espresso pods, and now, single-serve capsule machines. 

I've been a big Lavazza fangirl for a long while now. No other company can beat their rich taste. My absolute favorite of Lavazza's is their Gran Selezione. It's a dark roast blend, and boy, this coffee to die for. It's so thick and aromatic. I just add two teaspoons of creamer plus a little pinch of sugar, and good-bye you guys. DEAD.

Okay, I'm not really dead, I'm pretty much the opposite of that. I'm totally awake. Did I mention this coffee also gives you a nice burst of energy? Because it does. So, cheers to you, Lavazza. Thanks for keeping this mommy happy and focused.

Be sure to check out Lavazza on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram for even more coffee love.


A few weekends ago we traveled to William's grandmother's house. The fair was also in town while we were there. Yay. Our child loves a carnival. I, on the other hand, do not do rides of any sort, so I was more like, "Meh." But William, being the amazing daddy that he is, rode every single ride with Adrienne.

We played in the beautiful spring sun, ate the biggest pile of homemade potato chips, and enjoyed spending time together. I also got a ton of pretty gorgeous photographs from it all. Win slash win.

You can read about Adrienne's first carnival experience by going HERE. Her dress is from Matilda Jane and her rad sunglasses are from Target.

Burlap Bunny

Since Easter is right around the corner, I thought I would share the burlap bunny door hanger I made last week. It was super easy to whip up and cost me nothing since I already had all the supplies!

Burlap Bunny Door Hanger
|| supplies needed ||
- Burlap (about 1 yard)
- Paint (white, pink, and black)
- Scissors
- Hot Glue Gun
- Plastic Grocery Bags
- Tan Twine
- Tulle or Ribbon for Bow
- Florist Wire

- Cut out the shape of a bunny (or a flower or whatever you want your door hanger to be) from the burlap. Lay the bunny shape on the remaining burlap and cut out another shape for the bunny's back.

- Paint the whole front bunny shape white. Let dry. Paint pink on the insides of the ears. I used black puffy paint for his eyes and mouth, but regular black paint would work just fine. Let dry.

- Cut out a little nose from the burlap scraps. Paint it pink (don't glue it on to the bunny yet, even though my photos above show it already on there). Paint little pink cheeks on the bunny. Let dry. Hot glue the ends of twine to where the nose would be above the mouth. Glue the burlap nose on top of the twine.

- Start hot-gluing around the edges of the front and back pieces of the bunny. Go all around the ears and both sides of the head. I stopped when I had just enough of a pocket to start stuffing grocery store bags in it. Stuff a ton of bags in the bunny's ears and head, or until desired fullness. Hot-glue the bottom of the head all the way up.

- I used florist wire to make a hook on the back of the bunny to hang. I also made a big bow out of Tulle for the bow. And finished.

These burlap door hangers are pretty expensive around my town. A smaller one goes for about $40 or so. Yowza. I'm pretty proud of my free bunny, ohandplusalso my crafting skills.

Please disregard my dead ferns. I promise I just bought new ones after I took these photos. I don't have the best timing. Or green thumbs for that matter.
