A Wonderful Monday Afternoon!!

Two of the many loves in my life are consignment shopping and coffee, so how excited was I that my sister asked if I wanted to go do both today!!??  Our first stop, of course, coffee.  This cute little local coffee house called the Brick House, is one of our favorite places to go.  In the summertime there is a huge wrap around porch with little bistro tables and chairs to sit at.  In the winter there is a beautiful fire place with cute little tables and comfy worn leather chairs to use.  This is where we sat today, in the comfy chairs :)  Oh it was heaven!  This is a picture of the Brick House at Christmas time. Wouldn't you stop here if you were driving by?? :)

After coffee, we continued our day with some consignment shopping.  I was in search of picture frames, or pictures that I could rip the frame off of.  Old or new, didn't matter what color, because I plan on painting them.  This is a picture that I found online that is my inspiration.  I am trying to find little projects to keep myself busy, for my own sanity in the winter and to keep me out of the kitchen eating :)  

Isn't this awesome looking??   Mine will not be down a hallway, but just on the wall in my living room.  Anyway, this is what I am aiming for.  I will be sure to show you pictures when I get it finished!!

When we were finished shopping we made a quick stop at  Starbucks for more coffee, because it was only 2:00 ya know :)  I had a yummy new coffee that my sister had heard about through a blog that she follows.  It was a Tall Skinny Cinnamon Dolce.  It was delicious and only 90 calories!  Having this hot delight may cause me to rethink starting my No Sugar diet again.  If I could only control myself, I could indulge in these fun things from time to time.  Sigh!!!  Oh the struggles we have!!  So, my Monday was perfect!  Perfect shopping companion, perfect coffee, and perfect purchases!!  I couldn't ask for more :)
