Recently, Folgers asked me to talk about my morning routine, and I realized that on a perfect day, it revolves around coffee and music. I’m not exactly what you’d call a morning person. I’m not a grouch or anything, but I need a little time before the family can start with the rapid-fire questions and requests.
For a weekday morning, that means I hole myself up in the bathroom while I get ready, with only the radio to keep me company. That usually lasts a few short minutes before a little person barges in. Then it’s a mad dash to feed the kids, drop them at school, and get to work on time. Coffee doesn’t even come into the picture until I’ve been up for a few hours…and even then, it’s office coffee. Not exactly a relaxing or leisurely morning routine!
But once the weekend rolls around, I’m singing a different tune in the morning. Mr. Sugarplum is pretty serious about his coffee, and I’m pretty serious about cute trays…so we keep all the morning coffee essentials corralled on a cute Ikea tray.
Beans are stored in a sealable jar, and a tea canister brought back from this trip holds sweetener (it happens to have my initials). This little set-up makes me smile every time, and I love that it keeps the counters organized.
Mr. Sugarplum used to be a professional musician, and even though he doesn’t do it for a living anymore, there is always music playing in our home. He even made up a song about coffee we sing as a joke.
Reheat my coffaaaay,
Pour me some love.
Add a pinch of sugar, baby,
and french vanill-uuuuh!
I should enter him in the Folgers Jingle Contest…then every morning could be a weekend. You know the person who wrote, “The best part of waking up, is Folgers in your cup!” retired on that jingle! #cha-ching (You’re welcome for getting that stuck in your head all day.)
