I stick to the same routine everyday, and no I'm not referring to the dance routines I used to perform back in the day. (Sing Hallelujah sound familiar Kristin and Kelly?) My mornings (weekends excluded) are so predictable it's sad but the repetition works well for me
especially since I'm no morning person.
My morning starts with a BIG cup of Donut House coffee in either Chocolate Glazed Donut or Cinnamon Roll flavor. Gherkin likes it because he wakes up to the smell of donuts or cinnamon. What's not to like about that?
Then I have two whole grain waffles with smart balance butter and nutella. My addiction started during our vacay to Italy this past summer, and I rarely vary it. No need to because it's that good.
While eating my waffles I spend about 30 minutes checking e-mail, catching up on blog posts, checking facebook, and peeping at the weather in Bellagio. True story. Every morning since our visit to Bellagio/Lake Como last July I've checked the Bellagio webcam. It helps me stay connected to the most beautiful place I've ever seen
and Mr. Clooney. Check it out here. These are the same views we had every morning and evening... because our hotel room was right above the webcam.
Then I head to the bathroom in an attempt to beautify myself and then the closet to get dressed. All while my ipod speaker is blaring my morning mix. Seriously, I take drastic measures to help improve my mood in the AM. Did I mention that I am no morning person?
Lastly, I make the bed before heading out. This is a MUST. It doesn't matter if I'm running late... I will never leave the bed unmade. This puzzles Tony. I blame it on my stern father.
That's it and that's all. I apologize for the random post and if I bored you with my boring morning routine.
