This post about how to indulge yourself has been sponsored by Collective Bias and Gevalia.  All opinions are mine and  mine alone.

Finding time to indulge yourself can be difficult for many busy women. Much of my day is spent working, taking care of the house, and making sure that other people have what they need.  I have been trying to make sure that I take time out of my busy day to focus on me.  If I don’t do that, it’s too easy for me to burn out and that isn’t good for anyone.  There are many ways to indulge yourself but one of my favorites is with a great cup of coffee.   You might even say that finding a great cup of coffee is one of my passions in life. Coffee gives me the burst of energy I need to make it through a busy day. Since I enjoy my coffee light and sweet, I also consider a cup of coffee a sweet indulgence without going overboard with the calories.

Since this indulgent moment was just for me, I really only needed one cup of coffee instead of a whole pot. My Cuisinart Keurig lets me make just one cup of coffee at a time using the Keurig K-Cups so there is no need to grind gourmet coffee beans just for me.  I was all out of coffee K-Cups so I took a few minutes to pop into Walmart to see what what I could find.  I created a Google + Album to share my shopping trip with you.  I could tell that the new Gevalia Columbia K-Cups were a popular choice because there were only a few left on the shelf!  I picked up a box of Gevalia Columbia K-Cups and a few other things to set the mood for my indulgent moment and headed home to enjoy before the kids got home from school.

Gevalia prides itself on the rich, never bitter taste of their coffee. While I have tried their ground coffee in the past, I have never tried their K-Cups before.  The single cup coffee K-Cups let me enjoy that same rich taste without grinding the beans or brewing a full pot of coffee. I decided to create a truly indulgent experience by making myself a coffee shop drink at home with the Gevalia Colmubian coffee. Since it’s almost Cinco de Mayo, I thought a yummy Mexican Coffee was in order.
