Hey, hey coffee lovers. Today I have coffee lovers lifestyle post for you’ all. You know I love updating you on all my coffee adventures. Today is filled with iced drinks and binge watching shows. Because, right now for us it’s still hot, hot, hot! To top things off we have some serious fires nearby. We are on total air quality lock down. Just give me a mask with a straw hole so I can sip, sip my iced coffee drinks, when outdoors!
Our outdoor activities have been slowed down due to the air quality. Our answer has been sipping iced coffees, movie and tv series marathons! *our full list later in the post This is in between Sammie’s reading her Greek Mythology book for literature. Yes, she’s had homework over the summer for honors classes. And when I’ve taken breaks from all the things I need to do.
Binge Watching Picks
Our first viewing marathon was the series Malcom In The Middle, 2000-2006. I raised all girls with one boy. But, this show is about a family with a house full of boys! They are hilarious! Any how, under our fan with our iced #Starbucks coffee drinks in hand. I powered through my weeks full of laundry, while sipping on a power shot when we binge watched an entire season over a few days.
I think it’s been a fun television series for Sammie as she gets a peek of the life of the smartest, geeky boy in the family, Malcom and how he fits in with his quirky family. Did you ever watch this show?? If not, pass go with no stopping and do it! Your in for some laughs. What favorite iced coffee drink will you sip when binge watching shows??
After tennis practice Sammie happily tried the Starbucks Refreshers. A Revitalizing energy drink that has sparkling fruit juices, cool coconut water, vitamins, ginseng and green coffee bean extract. These Refreshers are best chilled or over ice. Sammie enjoyed the peach passion and I tried the black cherry limeade and we loved them. Have you tried them??
Back to binge watching. Our second show, Jane The Virgin. Sammie started without me when I was working. I’m trying to catch up to her late in the evenings. I tried not to be upset that she watched the show without me. Uh, teens. I never watched the series on TV. But, am so hooked after she got me into this one. I can say this is a cross between a telenovela and a satire. I love how the narrator commentates things going on in the show. Funny, a bit sexy without showing too much. A romantic comedy.
Favorites shows to binge watch while drinking coffee and snacking on goodies;
- Game of Thrones: Action, Drama! *R+ Drink You might need calm tea after this to unwind!

Some of these shows listed weren’t ones Sammie and I watched together. I don’t let her watch certain R rated shows at all. She’s good with that. Just sayin’ my house rules.
I put together a back to school, goodbye summer gift for Sammie. I added a few things she’ll need for her desk. Put them into this pretty Starbucks Cold Cup for back to school and gave her an iced cold Starbucks White Mocha drink for her first day. I’m super sad to see summer ending. It seemed like we really never got a real vacation since she had chosen to get a head with summer school. Farwell summer but, not quite yet with our iced drinks.
This fall you’ll find us binge watching and drinking coffees on the weekends now. I’m sure we’ll have an occasional pajama day! What fall series or shows are you looking forward to?
