Nothing Comes Before My McCafé:  A weekend with the everyday


This post is sponsored by McDonald’s, but the thoughts and opinions expressed here are my own.

Weekends are our favorite days, and I know I’m not alone in this. It’s the time to spend it with our daddy and the time mama get’s alone time and every so often we even squeeze a mommy and daddy date, yet weekends are also the time where we have to get everything done. We have to squeeze every task that we were not able to complete during the other 5 days of the week into 2 days. And that’s why I have teamed up with McCafé – because nothing comes before coffee, even my weekend to-do list. And with just $2 for any small McCafe, they make it so simple!


Saturdays are without a question my favorite day of the week. I get to sleep in a little longer and get to have my family all to my little selfish self! 😉

Our Saturday usually starts on Friday evening when we make a list of what we have to get done that day. Most of the time is just small things and of course errands, like the post office and church activities, but this weekend, in particular, we had none of that to do. We sold our big dining room table and decided to buy a round one, simple right?! No, we wanted one with a farmhouse look which meant we had to make a DIY, which all in all means 2-3 cups of McCafé, only for me! We left Bella with grandma and picked up some our at local McDonald’s, to find that they had changed their look and added some delicious new espresso drinks, and coming from a yellow lover, guys I’m in love. I got a hot McCafé Mocha and my Sweetums got an Americano.

We headed to pick up the table and met the sweetest man, I’m an extrovert so we ended up talking about all the furniture he had and where they came from he even offered us his wife’s old doll house.  On our way home we picked up the paint and finishes for our table, and of course, we had to stop by and get a few mums, the flower of fall. And the McCafé you see in the picture is definitely not mine, 🙂 I finished mine within 5 minutes, should have gotten a large. It’s my husband’s Americano.


On our way home we picked up some coffee and lunch, again, first things first. This time McCafé brought me some relaxing, much needed “me-time” while Bella napped and daddy completed the finishing touches of the table. This is something I try my best to accomplish every weekend. I work from home and spend every single waking second with Bella attached at my hip, wouldn’t have it any other way but if you’re a work at home mom you know the need for some me time. McCafé does that for me. Whether an Americano, Mocha or a Latte coffee relaxes my every cell and makes me feel at home wherever I’m at.
