Weekend Wrap-Up + Catch All

Happy Wednesday, y'all!
I mentioned yesterday that I took Monday off, and then I shared my favorite coffee orders yesterday. Today I'm finally getting around to sharing a little about our weekend, and it's going to be a little 'catch all,' because I didn't share anything about our super low-key Valentine's Day!

Valentine's Day we grabbed all the things the kiddos needed for their different class parties & rushed out of the door!
Nataleigh wore the cutest outfit ever, I swear!
She was Little Miss Valentine's for sure!
She was so excited about her Valentine's box, and I'm here to tell y'all that I found this castle kit at Dollar General for $3! I'm stocking up on all the different ones for next year!
My sweet loves!!

A little girl from another class sent Carson a carnation with a 'secret admirer' note in it! We have literally no clue who sent it, but it made his day to get some special attention. 

The boys headed to basketball practice, and Nat & I headed to cheer!

It was a typically busy Thursday, but we sprinkled lots of love throughout!

Friday, we rocked it, and we even left a little earlier than normal. A picture was snapped!

She loved her braided hairstyle for the day!

After school we ate an early dinner & then headed to a local high school to watch some semi-final conference play!

Saturdays are for donuts and basketball.
We wrapped up Carson's basketball season, and it was a bittersweet day. He played his precious little heart out, and I'm so proud of him & his team!

Sunday we headed to church, ate lunch with friends, and then watched all the wrestling!

I managed to snap zero pictures on Sunday!

Late on Sunday, Stephen spiked a low-grade fever that lingered a while.
It finally broke on Monday after a few of those cool patches and medicine. He had no other symptoms, but I'm terrified of the flu. I've mentioned before that our school system has already shut down once for so many flu cases. I'm not mentally prepared if the flu does hit!

We grabbed groceries with the Walmart Pick-Up!

And fixed dinner, before enjoying a quiet night at home, letting Stephen recover a little more!

Our weekend had some major rest moments as well as a couple super busy moments. We've been really trying to say "no" a little more, so we can enjoy just relaxing and resting together. It's been so nice, too!

Tuesday Talk {February}

Yesterday I took a much needed day off from blogging. I do have our Weekend Wrap-Up coming at you tomorrow, but today I'm joining Erika & Ashley for a little Tuesday Talk.
This is where we link up and share anything that is on our mind, and today I wanted to share something that is vitally important to the success of my day...

Anyone else out there a major coffee fan?!

We run on lots of coffee at the Hensley house, and we're not upset about it.

I often get asked what is my go-to coffee drink, and I'm pretty much a creature of habit when it comes to ordering food or coffee. I thought today I'd share what I drink from a few of my favorite coffee spots!

Dunkin' Donuts

This may or may not be my number 1 go-to spot for all the coffee you could want. I order the exact same thing every single time. It's so bad that the manager of my favorite DD, Nick, knows my order before I even order, and he even knows my order when Joe goes through the drive-thru. It has been said that I have a problem when it comes to Dunkin', but I believe I have a problem without Dunkin'!
Water for the little cutie, and a medium iced coffee with extra cream and extra liquid sugar for the mama, please!

I don't know why, but my coffee tastes different if I get a different size, which I know makes zero sense! It just does. Extra really sounds crazy, but it's just one additional pump of cream and sugar each. 

Iced coffee in the winter...ABSOLUTELY!
It's my favorite coffee ever, and it's my go-to treat.


At Starbucks I prefer a few seasonal drinks, and I don't really have a go-to there. It changes with the seasonal menu, so I don't stop here as often.
Salted Caramel Frappaccino is one of my favorites!
My fellow "coffee" lover prefers a tall vanilla bean frappaccino. She really just like coffee shops, because she feels like a big girl with her own "latte!"
A few of my favorite hot lattes from Starbucks that I order are, of course, the PSL, black & white mochas, and caramel brulee lattes. These are my favorites that they only have seasonally, so Starbucks just isn't as much my jam as DD!


I've recently been enjoying brewing my own coffee at home, but who am I kidding right now?! Jojo brews my coffee every morning, and he's the hottest dang barista ever, in my book!

It's taken me a few weeks to get back on the hot coffee train, but it's so much easier and cost efficient. 
We use whatever house blend they have, and we don't have a brand preference. Some of our 'coffee' friends are taken aback by our lack of coffee knowledge, but it is what it is. 

Here are my current favorite creamers...
 Of course!!
 A friend a few years ago got me started on this one, and I still love it!
And finally, this Italian Sweet Cream creamer is my favorite favorite!!

I always pour a HUGE cup of coffee with a generous splash of creamer before I rush out the door to drop the babies off at school! It's become my favorite little way to start the day.

Are you a coffee drinker?!
Where is your favorite place to grab a coffee drink, and do you have an order that you can't quit?!

Happy Tuesday, y'all!!
