An almost coffee disaster!

Good morning! How is your weekend going so far? I love Sundays because they are pretty relaxing, but don't love them because it means the next day is back to work, but at 9:30 am, I'm not really thinking about that right now. After a VERY exciting day yesterday (one of my friends got her wedding dress!!) Andddd we celebrated her birthday with pizza at Otto, mexican food, No Pudge Brownies and Fro-Yo...
After all that excitement I woke up at my really late time of 7:30 and basically as soon as I open my eyes I am ready for a cup of coffee. I stumbled into the kitchen to get it going and to my dismay there were NO more coffee filters!! After freaking out for about 3 minutes and tearing apart all my drawers where there may have been a .01% chance of a stray filter lying around, I decided I needed to have something to eat to calm me down.  
I got together a bowl of chobani vanilla greek yogurt, a handful each of goji berries, cacao nibs and my granola-ish oatmeal. After I ate that I felt like I had my head on straight and could figure this out...where else do i turn but...GOOGLE.  (I know Danny's mom will be laughing about the fact I googled this when she reads this post...) All I googled was "no coffee filter" and a nice little video popped up that instructed me to use a paper towel.  I had thought about that for a second before, but I was unsure of how well it would work. Well after watching this cute little video I decided even if it failed, it was worth a shot.  

I folded the paper towel in half 2x. I held it like a diamond and put 3 folds on one side and 1 on the other. I trimmed it a little bit and then put the grinds in. magic!

Now I was happy...sorry for the blurry picture, but this is how I feel without any coffee in the morning. This was a great fix in a a really lazy non-moving situation hurry. 

I am off the finish my coffee, head to the gym to do a treadmill workout and then make some stops to see my family.

I had a little reader request for some crock pot recipes (which I don't have, I don't know how...) and after pulling some out I found one more from another blog I like. It is a soup recipe for Arugula, Carrot and potato soup. I definitely plan on trying this without a crock pot. Have a great day!

Oh, I have so had to resort to the paper-towel coffee filter! Mine didn't work so successfully though, I think youtubing it would have helped, haha.

Either that or I should have thought to eat some superfood [chobani, goji berries, cacao nibs] before freaking out, too! How do you like goji berries, btw? I need to order chia seeds and other stuff like that online and want to experiment with some other stuff (like goji berries?) too!
