While writing this, my husband is on a mission to buy me a pumpkin spice latte. Yes, I know. My latte addiction is well documented here at Mommycosm, and is even referenced in my tagline, fortheloveofGod.
Something you may not know?
These days, I typically only buy a latte on my way home from the gym in the morning. Consider it my treat for getting there... and some days the sweet promise of a post-workout latte is the only thing getting me up and out to the gym.
So, today my husband made a rare appearance on a weekday and, get this. He let me sleep in. No gym for me, but he offered to run out to get me a latte anyway.
Yeah, I think I'll keep him. Either he realizes that I'll be more productive with my work after a little latte boost, or else he's afraid of being home all day with a caffeine free version of me. Not sure. But he's a smart, smart man nonetheless.
As he drove away on his 15 minute each way trip, I got to thinking. One of these days I'm going to figure out how to make a latte at home. I mean, I just promoted a #LatteLove Twitter party last week and was given a link to many yummy looking recipes over at The Breakfast Project, including a pumpkin spice one. They look easy enough, don't they?
One of these days is not today.
The folks over at The Breakfast Project teamed up with The Motherhood and are asking bloggers to share their reading list of favorite blogs enjoyed while sipping a morning latte.
Now, disclaimer. I'm not the biggest fan of lists because unfortunately, inevitably and unintentionally, somebody gets left out. There are over 300 blogs in my feed reader, so I do keep my finger on the pulse of a ton of really great blogs. These days, I only visit my reader a couple times a month. I have a few regular haunts I check out (almost) daily, but I also can be enticed by shiny objects via Facebook and Twitter.
A word of advice for any new(ish) bloggers. Link your posts on Facebook and Twitter and don't be afraid to follow and/or friend request people you enjoy reading. Just like 40 is the new 30, Facebook & Twitter are the new Google Reader. Just saying.
Without further adieu... here's a short list of some of my favorite people to read:
Joey Fortman (Real Mom Media)
They will make you laugh. They will make you cry. At times, they will probably make you snarf your latte all over your computer screen. You've been warned.
