Bad luck Betty, and mama saves the day

I broke my coffee pot last Friday morning. Completely shattered. All across my kitchen floor. While I was barefoot.


Apparently there's some force in the universe that beckons me to lose my grip on coffee pots when I am enduring a breakup. Because the same thing happened in early spring after the Chris breakup. And yes, both resulted in me blubbering on the kitchen floor, because what else are you supposed to do in this situation?!

That means I will soon have to purchase coffee pot number three.I haven't even lived in my house for a full 10 months yet!! Good lord someone find me a good man, because Mr. Coffee can't take much more!

Anyways, my mom is sort of awesome... and Saturday morning on her way to work (she's a hairstylist so she works Saturdays - ew right?!) she left a happy little container of fresh brewed coffee on my side porch, and texted me letting me know it was there for when I woke up.


Is she not the sweetest?! Plus she pulls really awesome things out of dumpsters for me too.
(My momma & I in Jamaica)

I love her!


(And yes, that is a metal rooster... it's not quite 6ft but I do laugh and think of Beyonce every time I pass by it)

Mama is a sweetie! As for Mr. Coffee, might I suggest a keurig or some other single cup machine? Maybe it's Mr. Coffee's time to hit the road.

Also, if you would like any ex beat downs, I'm sure we can plot together.

Mamas at the best. They always know what to do! Glad you have your mom through all of this, I could't have made it through ANYTHING without mine!

but keep mom around, she'll keep the caffeine brewing.

Ok, your mother just won her way into MY heart!!! Any woman that knows the value of morning coffee is top notch in my book :) My momma has actually been boxing and sending my coffee all the way to Istanbul...good moms think alike. Can't allow their daughters to awake without a cup of joe!

That is so sweet! I wish my mom lived close enough to do that :)
