Dear Canada Post….

Posted: June 3, 2011 in Uncategorized

…. You may now go on strike.

It’s a Friday Favorites kind of day people! That can only mean ONE thing! I got home to find a little something something in my mailbox!

Even though Mother Nature went a little wonky and dropped the temps from 90 to 50 and windy as hell I grabbed my ID and booked it to the post office before they closed.

Oh how I love mail… especially big boxes from home.

Oh whatever could it be?!?!

That’s right folks… four glorious pounds of my favorite addiction. The sweet sweet coffee that makes my 4:54 am daily alarm just a little bit better. This latest order SHOULD last me the next 8 weeks so I won’t have to order again… but that’s only if I can restrain myself from creating a caffeine injection. We shall see.

Since my mom is so awesome there was some other goodness included.

Yup, my four kinds of JavaMoose coffee I had ordered, plus some Dessert gum and a box of chocolate Cheerios… I think I forgot to tell her chocolate cheerios come to Canada like.. NEXT WEEK… but whatever. Carbs are carbs right?!

The only snag in the plan was when I popped open the bag of White Choco Chip to fill up my coffee pot for this morning… and it contained beans… whole beans. Opps, I guess I need to note on the order it should be ground.

I don’t OWN a coffee grinder.

Nor did I have ANY other coffee for this morning.

So I did what I always do, I got desperate and used my Magic Bullet. I swear that thing is the BEST 50$ I have ever spent on a kitchen appliance… well, that and my crock pot. But you know me, I hate playing favorites.

Beans were ground, coffee was perked this morning and Becca was a VERY happy camper.

I know it’s crazy but I was half expecting the coffee to be white… you know.. like white choco chips? (I know… foolish right?).

I was also expecting it to be delicious and fantastical and wonderful and everything I ever imaged it to be in my head.

…. and it WAS!

What are YOU loving today?

    YES! You got your Java Moose and you don’t have to cry.. unless it is tears of joy 😉

    I’m loving the fact that I am going to a Strawberry festival tonight!

  2. Genie says:

    Love? I loved having a candy bar with my coffee for breakfast. Hardcore. LOL

  3. I love my Magic Bullet too! You have me so intrigued by this coffee.

      I seriously couldnt live without the bullet! The coffee is AMAZING. Once the new website is up I’ll be posting it… and will probably hold a giveaway when I move back (and can get the coffee easier!)

    Dessert gum?? OMG I want to try this!!! Can you only get it in the States? What’s it like? I’m going to Florida the end of August. I think I will have to stock up! lol

    • ihearteggs says:

      Yup! it’s only in teh states right now! BOO!!!! I love the mint chocooalte chip and strawberry shortcake! I also got some key lime pie I have yet to try!

  5. Kimmy says:

    Wow I’m so jealous!! I had no idea this even existed. I bet it would be perfect for cravings. Sucks that Canada Post is talking strike. I could bribe some US friends to mail me some but who knows when it would get here lol

    • ihearteggs says:

      I know! I was SO happy my package got here yesterday. If I had to wait longer for my coffee I would have gone insane lol i specifically ordered enough to last until I move back ahah

  6. Kimmy says:

    I’m glad you got your coffee! Yay!! 🙂

  7. Kimmy says:

    I don’t drink coffee but I’m wondering if I should start lol. I like to drink diet pop and DavidsTea 🙂

  8. Alina says:

    Crisis averted. Great news! I find I don’t really use my magic bullet that much. I use the blender for smoothies most of the time. What do you use the Bullet for?

    • ihearteggs says:

      I go through bullet phases… I like blending stuff with ice in the summer… i made ice tea/coffee slushies or even just crystal light and ice. It’s a treat when you diet!! lol

  9. Liz says:

    I LOVE my coffee too! Unfortunately, we don’t have Java Moose in the states–you make their coffee sound SO delicious! I’ve been craving it without ever having tried it before 🙂

  10. Lisa says:

    I love getting packages too! Makes you feel important or something, I don’t know =) I’ve got to try that coffee.

    • ihearteggs says:

      I know! Even though I bought the coffee just getting it with a little something from my mom was so fantastic! She used to send me care packages when I was mega poor and it was like christmas when they arrived!

  11. Um, my Magic Bullet is a family memeber. I fondly refer to it in a french accent (Mah-jeek Boo-lay). I use it twice a day at least. Seriously.

  12. Emily says:

    I LOVE coffee. I had some kind of Newmans Own organic fair trade extra bold coffee from the trusty Keurig this morning! I also loved my 7 mile run! And the immense amount of cantaloupe consumed afterwards. 🙂

  13. Ooo how creative to use the magic bullet for grinding. Brilliant!

  14. Brilliant idea to use the magic bullet..just brilliant!

  15. Do you have a magic bullet? I recently found out mine could grind coffee and I literally have never been more excited for anything in my life bahaha.

  16. lol…silly. tons of people use the Bullet as a coffee grinder. dont bother buying one..that Bullet is amazing!!
    Ha ha..glad you got all your goodies from the mom 🙂 so sweet 🙂

    I posted earlier on yesterday’s post asking if you received your coffee…I guess I should have waited. Congrats….I know life will be easier!
