Over Memorial Day weekend my entire family and I went to a cabin up north. It was 4 days of perfect weather, awesome family time, peaceful pontoon riding, and wonderful food.

And there was coffee. Lots of coffee.

More than a few of my family members and I are a bit sleep deprived. Erik and I have a 4 month old. My sister-in-law wakes up with my 3 year old niece at least once a night and my other sister-in-law is 9 months pregnant. So none of us are getting the best sleep. And we’re tired. Especially me. I’m tired. But I think I’ve mentioned that quite a few times lately.

Our home away from home for the weekend.

The cabin was beautiful, as you can see, and easily slept all 12 of us comfortably. We divvied up meals and Erik and I took a breakfast and dinner.


Typically I’d want to make some type of quiche or egg bake, but Erik is our breakfast cook on the weekends and he wanted to make a huge, but simple breakfast that included:

– Fried eggs

– Hash browns

– Bacon

– Sausage

– Pancakes

– Coffee

We ended up also having donuts because my sister-in-law (the pregnant one) brought a bunch. She and I share similar cravings when pregnant. Sweets, sweets and more sweets.

This cabin was the real deal. All wood and rustic.

We kept our breakfast casual and everyone helped themselves as the food was ready. Us coffee-lovers eagerly poured our first mugs of coffee like fiends. I swear we chugged coffee all weekend. I brought Lavazza and it was so good. When you need coffee…like really need it just to get through the day awake, having the best kind is such a special treat.

This is my second post as part of my partnership with Lavazza (earlier this year I had my good friend over and we had a delicious quiche and enjoyed Lavazza coffee while hanging out with newborn Rosie). As a reminder, Lavazza coffee is the number 1 coffee brand in Italy and it tastes damn good. There is this amazing little crepe place called La Belle Crepe (they also serve pho and bahn mi, strange combination but the chef/owner is French and everything he serves is super authentic) in Minneapolis near my office and they serve Lavazza coffee. The fact that he only serves Lavazza speaks to its authenticity. If you are ever in Minneapolis definitely check La Belle Crepe out.


I so appreciated my parents over our cabin weekend, they helped out a lot with my girls at the cabin which was wonderful and gave me a few nice breaks.


My lil’ bro. He’s not so little anymore and about to become a dad in about a month.


Gimme coffee. And lots of it.


My girls and grandma hanging out in pajamas. Cabin days are lazy days.


I brought a lot of coffee because I knew my family and I would need it. We went through one and a half of these in 4 days.

The sunsets at the cabin were pretty epic.

And there you have it. A little glimpse into our perfect cabin weekend.
