Another weekend here + gone, and although Monday's aren't really my jam, I can't help but have a big a** smile on my face because I'm that much closer to my West Coast Getaway! With only 2 1/2 weeks to go, you know that most of my weekend was spent planning + buying things for the trip, yet we still managed to sneak some time for housework, a housewarming party {just feeling a little old here} + even a movie night! The movie night is actually pretty surprising being that I RARELY watch any kind of tv, Netflix, movies, etc. but sometimes you just get that craving to cuddle up + do nothing {am I right?!}

In addition to being able to set my own schedule, cook fresh meals in my kitchen, work on my to-do list uninterrupted, and spend unlimited quality time w/ the bf and pup, weekends always have me craving more. More what? COFFEE.

I try really hard {most of the time} to stay away from coffee + caffeinated beverages during the week for multiple different reasons {high acidity, GI irritation, release of cortisol, stained teeth, etc.} but when the weekend rolls around I'm all about a morning cup {or jar} of Joe.

Partially because I've turned into somewhat of a {coffee snob} and partially because I like to think I'm trying to save money, I usually end up brewing my own coffee at home. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the idea of going out for coffee, but 1) my favorite coffee shops in town tend to be reserved for special occasions {$$$} 2) frankly, I'm over generic coffee shops 3) our home brewed coffee is BOMB!

Which is exactly why I'm sharing my recipe for homemade cold brew coffee with you today! Maybe you're a coffee connoisseur like me, maybe you're trying to save some money, or maybe you just really like cold brew--- either way, I promise you'll love this and it's perfect for summertime sippin' any day of the week!
