Last year’s left a little to be desired. We got in a car accident 2 hours in to our 6 hour drive (we were ok!) and ended up arriving a day later than we should have dealing with that. Then we left a day earlier than we were supposed to, to handle car stuff. PLUS my allergies were through the roof crazy and I was pretty miserable. We know this year is going to be so much better. We meet in a place up in the mountains that I went every summer as a girl (and where my dad went as a boy!) and spend a week with my mom, dad and my sister’s family. It’s awesome. One of my favorite parts of last year was my morning coffee. No, it wasn’t fishing like you may have thought (ha!). This year I decided to put a little more thought in to starting off the day off right by creating a DIY coffee station that I will brining with me. I tried to quit coffee a year ago. I was worried about the calories it was adding to my day. I started the process of weaning. It was rough, yo. I totally get why babies cry when they are weaned. Then I realized that I really enjoy coffee and the tiny bit of time it gives me in the morning to just relax and ease in to the day. In the process of trying to stop drinking coffee, I taught myself how to drink it black since I still wasn’t keen on putting the chemicals found in most coffee creamers in my system. I don’t love sweet beverages so drinking it this way was fine. But when I came across these International Delight Simply Pure Coffee Creamers at Walmart, I knew I had to try them. They include only 5 simple ingredients including real milk, cream and sugar. I use it my coffee daily. And because it comes in 3 yummy flavors (Vanilla, Hazelnut and Caramel) I know that the rest of my family will love these too.
On vacation we usually have an idea of what we are doing for the day but things are really relaxed. I know that on a few days my dad and husband will want to get out early to go fishing so our DIY coffee station has travel cups and lids. My mom brings most of the food but I usually bring some of my own coffee since we have different preferences. And I’ll put it all in a cute little basket. The basket and supplies won’t take up much room and will be easy to move it between cabins depending on who is hosting coffee for the morning. Along with the International Delight Simply Pure Coffee Creamer I’ll include raw sugar (for my dad, he’s not a creamer man) and ground cinnamon for sprinkling. I’ll also include some stir sticks and a pretty little napkin to create a super simple but delicious DIY coffee station for our vacation. That totally rhymes. You could also add things to make tea and hot cocoa, to please all the members and kids in the family.I know that I can make the basket fit but filling it with socks, hats, and whatever else is small and squishable. To pack the rest of the coffee goods, I’ll use a plastic container. I usually have a plastic tub filled with food that this will fit perfectly in and I’ll have one bag of refrigerated items where the creamers will go. There are grocery stores closer to where our cabins are but I can’t chance that they won’t have my favorite creamer.I love that this creamer gives my coffee tons of flavor without being overly sweet. I thought I loved coffee before but this creamer makes it even better. I can almost smell the fresh mountain air as I enjoy my cup of coffee in the morning. While I don’t have a lot of downtime at home, I really try to make the most of vacation (especially since wifi is terrible). Getting to read a magazine with my coffee is like a dream come true! And I can’t wait!
