Coffee with Cops

The other day we went to our second McDonalds event.  We decided to venture to a location close to where my brother lives in Dallas because we thought it would be fun to see a new [to us] McDonald’s. This latest event is called Coffee with Cops.

What is Coffee with Cops?

Coffee with Cops is a partnership between the Dallas Police Department and McDonald’s of North Texas to boost officer and community relations by providing residents with the opportunity to interact with Police Officers working in their neighborhood.The partnership began in 2013 and has continued to evolve over the past seven years. Officers of all levels – including Sergeants, Deputy Chiefs and Neighborhood Patrol Officers – will sit down with residents to answer questions, discuss public safety and build relationships with those they serve.

Community is key

It was so fun to see so many officers from all different levels talking to all different walks of life. All of the officers were so kind to answer all kinds of questions and I mean they took a picture with this crazy fool. Plus, who doesn’t love McDonald’s breakfast on a Saturday.

Tripp seriously had so much fun and tt was the icing on the cake when we arrived and saw that this McDonald’s had a playground.  Coffee with Cops was so refreshing and fun.  It was so cool to hear community updates and see hear the behind the scenes stories!

Stay tuned to see what McDonald’s events I end up at next.

My First Mother’s Day + Gift Ideas

I know, I know. I was a mother when I was pregnant but this year is so special having Tripp in my arms to snuggle and hug(he was born TWO days after Mother’s Day last year). These last few years Mother’s Day has honestly been very sad. It is hard watching so many people celebrate with their mom and you don’t get to do that.

I love that this year has brought new meaning to this holiday. I am so thankful that God chose Tripp to be my little one. He has shown me unconditional love that I have never known. He has taught me to be more carefree and less uptight. He has taught me patience and understanding and that with one little grin that he can get out of a lot of trouble.

I can’t wait to spend this Mother’s Day with my little family. Really that is the best gift of all BUT if you were to ask me some fun gift ideas for moms here is what I would suggest!

Pampering is ALWAYS a good idea for mom so a massage or mani/pedi gift card are safe bets! Click to photos below for direct links!

#100daysofhappiness: Day 99 and 100

FINALLY, the LAST #100daysofhappiness post!

I love getting to enjoy a cup of coffee on our front porch.  PS have I said how much I really just love Tervis Tumblers?

And for my last picture I leave you with a John Lennon quote.  Happiness if what you should strive for in life and while life is tough you can find small miracle and goodness in the everyday things!

#100daysofhappiness: Day 7

Y’all this weekend just got away from me and I totally forgot to post yesterdays picture.  It is a simple one but one of my favorite things…. COFFEE! I don’t drink a lot but I love getting up in the morning and getting a warm cup o joe.

My Keurig is amazing and I thought I would share some of my favorite flavors!

Side note: I love that I can easily make tea and hot cocoa with my Keurig!
