Super Bummer News

Oh my gosh, guys. I found out some super bummer news today. You all know my favorite local coffee shop, Flavour Cafe, right? The one I hit up as often as possible…the one I just happened to hit up last weekend for my favorite coffee?

Well I found out that very early this morning the building caught on fire. Luckily nobody was hurt, but the building is still currently uninhabitable, according to a news source. I’m so bummed..I absolutely LOVED that place and the owner was such a nice guy. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it won’t be a total loss and they’ll be able to fix it up, but I have no idea how bad the damage is.

Man, it’s things like that that make you remember just how quickly things can change. One minute something is there and the next, it’s gone. So sad.


Now that I’ve totally gone and put a damper on the mood, let’s try to lighten things up a bit. Here’s some good news…I’m still awake and moving and I’m about halfway through my busy day. That’s definitely a positive thing! 😉


Thank god that I put together today’s lunch and snacks last night when I got home, rather than waiting until today. I definitely would not have had ANY time to do anything this morning…I was rushing around like a mad woman from start to finish!


Breakfast today held me off MUCH better than yesterday’s, so I haven’t felt too much like ther bottomless pit I was then. Some snacks I packed up for today include:

Wasa crackers and The Laughing Cow Light Swiss Cheese.


And one of the newest flavors from Chobani – Blood Orange.


Lunch consisted of some baby carrots and celery sticks, an orange, and a turkey wrap, which is actually the same one that I had on Monday. Super delicious, and you really can never go wrong when bread & butter pickles are involved, am I right? Winking smile


On another note, I’ve also been meaning to fill you guys in on another drink that I’ve been enjoying the past couple of weeks.

About a month ago, I received a big ‘ol box of SoBe Lifewater Coconut water which, believe it or not, also included an actual coconut in the box.


I don’t know about you, but this was definitely my first time ever receiving a coconut in the mail. So cool.


It took me a while to try them (because I had put them out in the garage and actually totally forgotten about them) but I’ve finished up all three flavors in the past couple of weeks and let me tell ya…they are tasty!


Out of the three flavors (Pomegranate Nectarine, Pacific Coconut, and Mango Mandarin) I’d have to say that the Pacific Coconut was my favorite. It was probably the least sweet out of the three, but I liked the simplicity of just the coconut flavor. I have yet to see these out at my local grocery store, but I know that they’re new for 2012 so they’ll most likely be popping up soon enough. I’ve got my eyes peeled!

Alright guys, we’re gettin’ there. Only a few more hours left!

Hope everyone is having a great Friday! :)

    You probably know Joe, the previous co-owner of Flavour, he is my close friend and has been running Flavour2Go for the past year. Not sure if you knew that, but if you need your Flavour fix, he is in E. Greenbush and open for business! :)

      Yes! I definitely know Joe…he actually comes to the salon that I work at and brings us hot chocolate. He’s such a great guy!

    There was a fire on my block two weeks ago and it was so scary. It makes you feel so powerless because the only thing you can do is run away to save yourself from the flames.

    I’m not a huge fan of coconut water but I’ve heard good stuff about the Sobe. Definitely going to give it a try if I ever come across it in the store.

    I have to say, I absolutely love your blog. You are so upbeat, happy, and positive all the time (even when you post sad news like you did!)!! I thoroughly enjoy reading it every day!!!
    I didn’t know that they had a new flavor of chobani! My grocery store seems to always be behind the times in brands/flavors, so I’m sure I’ll see it by the end of the year =)
    Have a great weekend!!

    Hopefully the coffee shop can be repaired sooner than later! I hate when things like this happens, especially to independent business owners who put their heart and soul into the company. If their other customers are like you though, it sounds like they will at least have plenty of business when they are up and running again.. :-)

    I have yet to try coconut water, I really need to! I’ve heard its a great post workout drink.
    I am a dunkin coffee girl! So much cheaper than anywhere else however it is always nice to support the local coffee shops!

    Ugh, that totally sucks about the coffee shop :( Glad that no one was hurt though. Local coffee shops are always great! I mean don’t get me wrong, I love my Starbucks, but there’s just something special about local shops.
    Oh, and totally random, as I was leaving this comment, I noticed at the bottom of the page your disclaimer..& I think that you can take off the part about not being a certified fitness expert! Because you are now, right? :) That is so awesome- Congrats again on that!

      It’s so funny you mention that, Holly. I’ve been trying to figure out for over a week how to change it, lol. I can’t find it anywhere in my dashboard!!

    Ooh, those waters have skinny pina colada written all over them! 😉

    So sorry to hear about your coffee shop. Saying a prayer for the owner right now! Sometimes life is just not fair.

      Haha, not a stupid question at all! It’s actually not as intense as regular coconut water, because this is a mix of regular water and coconut water. So if the regular stuff is usually a bit much for you, then this might be your “cup of tea!” Errr, coconut water. 😉
