How are you? Things have been crazy, busy over here- but all good stuff! This past weekend, we celebrated Josh’s Dad’s birthday, had Kaylin’s swimming lessons, had our summer themed body pump launch (I’m on the far left):
and we threw a baby shower for one of the other group fitness instructors at our house:
We decided to have a brunch shower and everyone brought a dish. I put together a SIMPLE parfait bar (Greek yogurt, homemade granola, and strawberries):
I also provided the water, juice, hot and iced coffee. Lucky for me, Peet’s had recently given me a sample of their Baridi coffee (disclaimer: I received the coffee sample for free). According to the company:
“Peet’s has just introduced Baridi, a blend of beans specifically roasted and meant to be poured over ice and enjoyed cold. As for the prep, forget about just throwing hot brew over ice or you’ll get tasteless watered-down coffee.:
Peet’s provided instructions with the coffee:
1. Prepare a concentrated brew: 2/3 cup coffee to 2 1/2 cups water in a drip coffee maker
2. Cool just brewed concentrate quickly by adding 2 1/2 cups ice directly into the carafe:
3. Stir until ice melts completely:
4. Pour over ice and enjoy:
SO yummy! Want to try Peet’s new blend yourself? Giveaway information below!
The shower was fabulous. The food was so yummy- quiche, green salad, fruit salad with nutella/Greek yogurt fruit dip, muffins, scones, vegetable tray, cheese & cracker tray, etc! Nom! Wish I had gotten a picture of the full spread. Some of the ladies:
