When we last spoke I was eating donuts like it’s my job in Palm Springs after the Palm Springs Half Marathon… Wait, can that be my job? How do I make that happen??
I hung out for a bit with my friends and then headed back home.
In the afternoon I finally saw Unbroken. I read the book recently and have been waiting to see this movie! It’s a good movie, but sad and a little hard to watch at times.
Then, this morning Ben and I went on a nice little walk. It used to be our Sunday morning tradition. We would go get iced coffee and a treat. We haven’t done that in a long time and didn’t yesterday because of the race in Palm Springs. So, today we headed out for some iced coffee, walking and talking.
Unfortunately, the coffee shop was randomly closed today!?!
Luckily, I am the best at finding food in every circumstance. So, I headed into Trader Joes and came up with a plan.
Instant Iced Coffee from Trader Joes:
Step one: Buy TJ’s Iced Coffee and a Chocolate Milk.
Step two: Take a swig of said chocolate milk.
Step three: Fill up the chocolate milk with iced coffee. Shake. Drink.
Breakfast: Tamales cooked up with eggs. Yes.
I shared this before, but I’m all excited about my newest iced coffee creation, so I’m sharing it again…
Question: Iced coffee or Hot coffee?
Ashley @ Saving Money in your Twenties says
I love iced coffee! But since it’s so flippin cold outside I’ve been drinking it hot. boo. can’t wait for summer!!
Becky @ Ok, so here's the plan says
Almost always hot coffee, though iced is good in the summer time.
My husband and I walked to Einstein’s for coffee this morning! Hot coffee 🙂
Stacy @ Sweating Tulipz says
Your hilarious! I like my coffee Hot! But a frozen or iced coffee treat every once in a blue moon is great!
Lisa J says
Hot in the morning. Iced the rest of the day. I love love love iced. I’ll have to try TJ’s. Thanks for that.
Emily S. says
ALL the coffee!!!
Annemarie D-Chi says
ICED COFFEE! Preferably from Dunkin 😉
Ummmm I know how I’m having my coffee tomorrow. I got a frother for like $4 at Ikea so I’ve been obsessed with frothing my milk to put on top of my coffee like a latte lately, haha.
Tamales with eggs? ! WAH!!! Genius I love coffee hot or cold. Right now my favorite is the Blueberry coffee at 7-11. When they’re out I ask the guy to brew a fresh pot. (They have signage in the store offering if you don’t see your favorite coffee just ask and they’ll brew it fresh for you)
Alisha @ Real Girl Running says
Hot coffee all the way. Cappuccino. Although I think Iced coffee is made differently in the US – I don’t mind it as much.
Rebecca @ Bring Back Delicious says
My husband and I used to make an outing out of walking to shops/restaurants/errands as a way to spend time together. After we moved further into the ‘burbs, that wasn’t really practical, but I do miss it.
I always get a ginormous iced coffee, which in LA, is pretty much ‘in season’ most of the year. I like my coffees so big I vibrate home from all the caffeine… 🙂
I guess i can say both, My husband and I love Starbucks anytime we can get our hands on it!

Sounds like a lovely Sunday am tradition. Maybe I will try to get my bf into that also. We have a bunch of shops 1-1.5 miles away so a decent walking distance with good rewards at the end 🙂
Heather @ Run Eat Play says
Usually hot coffee – but I like iced coffee in the summer!
Iced coffee always! For some reason, coffee only gives me heartburn when I drink it hot.
I like to add a splash of Kern’s Chocolate Coconut Water and milk to my iced coffee. And usually one Stevia. 🙂
Livi @ Eat, Pray, Work It Out says
I just love my hot coffee in the morning!
Erin @ Erin's Inside Job says
Definitely hot coffee. I don’t really like coffee itself and mainly drink espresso. I had to switch to decaf though bc my body didn’t like caffeine randomly and I could never predict when that would happen.
Linda @ TheFitty says
Typically I like iced coffee, but a hot coffee on a cold day is good.
Iced. All day, every day, heat wave, blizzard, don’t care. The 7-11 by me shuts down their iced coffee machine for the winter (I live in NJ), and I take it VERY personally.
Sally @ sweat out the small stuff says
Hot coffee mostly. But in the hot summer I’ll do iced. But it ends up being more like a milkshake with too much cream n sugar.
Rachel Runs Music City says
Answer: Hot and Iced coffee. Usually in the same day. Problem solved!
Paola @ Do It With Heart says
Hot coffee in the morning, always. In the afternoon, usually hot as well unless I’m on the road, then iced coffee. It’s just better in the car for some reason.
In Houston so: During the summer…Hot coffee in the AM…and iced the rest of the day ( today its 75 🙂 so I got an iced for lunch! ) During the winter: Hot coffee all day.
Kaelene @Unlocking Kiki says
Iced coffee all the way!
Iced coffee is tastier to me, but sometimes I just need the warmth. That is often when I make my own poor man’s diet mocha by pouring half a packet of no-sugar-added cocoa powder in my mug before I pour the coffee in.
Amy @ Mama Running for God says
Mmm…COFFEE!!!! I am hopelessly addicted!! I like my coffee warm and iced. Depends on the time of day. Hot in the morning, iced in the afternoons. However, only iced in the summer time. I don’t drink it iced in the winter.

This is a life changer and they are not messing around with the name! 🙂
ERMAGERD. I just put this on my Amazon wishlist. I may need to invest and keep it in my office.
Shannon in Tustin says
Oh it is the JAM for sure! 🙂
Make sure you get your coffee ground “coarse” as if for a French press coffee brew. I got mine last summer and love it!
