My schedule has been changing so much that it’s hard for me to stay focused–and since this blog is important to me, I try to incorporate it into my daily life without letting it take over. Last night is a great example…My bible study took a little detour to Leaves-n-Beans Roasting Co in Peoria Heights before our session.
I hadn’t been to L-n-B in about 10,000 years and since I don’t really drink coffee, I didn’t have a reason to go…of course my opinion has now changed. I mean, talk about charming.
I had to get a couple pictures of the place before I browsed the drink menu.
What other place do you know that has a giant painted oak tree with little nests full of happiness, I mean cups of coffee and tea?
We made our way through the little coffee/tea house up to the counter to place our orders…but first Monique stopped for a handful of peanut M&M’s.
The menu was pretty big…lots of choices, even for us non-coffee drinkers.
And if you wanted to know what I look like while drinking a smoothie and taking a picture, here you go:
Leaves-n-Beans had a great atmosphere–I could see myself going there to do some homework (except that I’m done with school) or catch up with an old friend. I really need to become a coffee drinker and these trips to places like L-n-B and Joe’s won’t be so weird for me.
So I have absolutely no idea what I’m going to be doing tonight–there are a few ideas up in the air. But I know for sure that tomorrow I will be at the Steamboat race! I’m so pumped about it…minus the being-at-the-race-at-6:45am-on-a-Saturday part. It will be worth it.
Have a great weekend!
Psst! I actually spent money last night:
Small strawberry fruit smoothie: $3.50
