Lunchtime bonus, it will be OK and morning coffee

- This bag from Chipotle Mexican Grill held my lunch one day (burrito bowl - so good.)  I stuck the bag under my desk at work for future use since it has handles.  (Handy to have.)  The opportunity came yesterday when a coworker brought me a stack of books to take home to read, and when I loaded them in the Chipotle bag, I saw the fun message on the side.  Big dreams, small dreams - it's all good.

- Thankful for all the recent home office organization when the letter from the IRS came.  I knew exactly where my 2011 tax return paperwork was.  And thankful for a wonderful accountant, who returned my anxious call on her off time.  The heart pounding stopped when she told me it would be OK.

- The first meandering into my kitchen in the early morning to get coffee going and that first warm mug at my home office desk.

I love that first cup of coffee's life-saving!

Hi Lynn .. lovely to see the message - dreams: they're all good ...

Looks like life is presenting few problems ... and that first cup of coffee - I really don't like it any other time!

Cheers Hilary

I need to find a Chipolte Mexican Grill to get one of those bags.

It is so worth having an accountant do our taxes just for that very reason for peace of mind as the handle any woes that arise.

We drink Jamaican Me Crazy coffee and the smell is overwhelming plus the coffee is delicious and the perfect way to start the day.

The bag is very adorable and I agree paper bags with handles MUST be saved. Perhaps if more bag had handles, we'd use them more often, rather than send them off to be recycled.

I've had IRS letter and they are rather Gestapo in nature -- striking terror in the heart!

I'm in total agreement about the first cup of coffee warming my hands...YUM:~)

Have a good day, Lynn.

That is a great bag. It looks similar to the ones that Primark give you, but without the clever text.

I love my first mug of coffee of the day, it's the only one with caffeine in it!

G. B. Miller said...

Excellent bag as it can definitely brighten up a dull day.

I usually do about two cups per day M-F, and strangely enough, they're usually within two hours of each: one at breakfast (6ish) and one at work (8:30ish).

Riot Kitty said...

I love Chipotle's advertising and copywriting. Having had to do that for work once upon a time, you appreciate the interesting stuff!

I have never been there - I need to change that. sandie

TALON said...

Yum on the first cup of coffee in the morning :)

Snaggle Tooth said...

Such a cool Bag! I'd never throw it out until too disintegrated to use. Good thing you knew where the tax stuff is! Sorry you had to endure extra irs stress- bet your refund was delayed too. Hope all gets cleared up quickly n the accountant is right. I feel the same about my warm tea. It's so comforting. Hope the rest of your week goes smoothly-

My first cup of tea is a life saver. Mine, and that of anyone who has asked me to do things before I have that tea in my hand. That is, it saves their life if they have the sense to make it for me. Quickly.

Lynn said...

Joanne -

Me, too. It's brewing again right now. :)

Hilary -

Dreams are lovely, aren't they?

Sometimes I'll have a mid-morning latte if I'm passing one of those high price coffee places that know how to make it, but other than that, I'm a morning coffee only person, too.

Granny Annie -

I looked it up and they are in, are you ready: Norman, Oklahoma City, Edmond, Stillwater and Tulsa.

Jamaican Me Crazy is a great name for a coffee!!! I'll look that up now.

Lynn said...

Sara -

I always think that when I go to Whole Foods, too. I end up reusing those bags because they have handles.

It does and it was totally unfounded - my accountant says my paperwork was perfectly correct and in order. We sent a response last night.

Joe -

I drink half caf / half decaf. My doctor wanted me to get off caffeine entirely, so this is a nod to that. :)

G -

It's getting you through the morning, sounds like.

Riot Kitty -

I'll bet. They also use such fresh ingredients. I like the Burrito Bowl with brown rice, black beans, grilled chicken and guacamole on top. Yum.

Lynn said...

Sandie -

I'm sure there is one up there. Just checked and they seem to be about 15 miles from you, in Kennesaw, Roswell and Alpharetta.

Talon -

Having some right now.

Snaggle -

It's all uphill from here! :)

The Elephant's Child -

I function better with it, too. :)

Ileana said...

The message on that bag is like nothing I've seen before. I'd want to keep it, too!

I'm having my first warm cup right now (I usually stick to an espresso after lunch to kick me back into gear).

Have a great day, chica!

Sparkling Red said...

I can't think of many treats better than a big stack of great books. :-)

Mama Zen said...

Nothing beats that first cup of coffee in the morning!

sage said...

that first cup is good and when the IRS letter arrives, my heart misses a beat or three...

Jannie Funster said...

TG our IRS challenges are all behind us -- they can wield a lot of weight when they want to.

Oh please Universe, let me get to sleep now that I am all caught up on reading and commenting on Lynn's posts, so I too can soon wake to get my coffee going. A very warming time of the day indeed.

But first... to dreams that all the gorgeous fun bags of the Universe could never ever remotely hope to contain. :)


Lynn said...

Ily -

I usually like an unsweet iced tea in the afternoon - just enough kick to keep me going. :)

Sparkling Red -

I agree - if I never left my house again, I'd have enough to read, I think. :)

Mama Zen -

Having some again now.

Sage -

I made a joke to my accountant that they should pick on the people who actually make money and she told me the story of someone who makes a lot less than me and is being audited. And he's ill and had to ride the bus to get there. So I'll never joke about it again, but yes, my heart did skip about 3 beats.

Jannie -

There you are - I missed you, but I know you are busy busy. I hope you had the dreams you dreamed of.
