Jackpot bean!!!

Well ladies and gentlemen our family had our first trip to Vegas. We had the best time. Truth be told, the reason we went there is because my mom lives there and we had the most wonderful visit with her. The baby beans loved Vegas!!! I mean, how could you not?

Momma and poppa bean were a little surprised and saddened by the lack of coffee shops. There was a ton of Starbucks, which is awesome, don’t get me wrong, but that’s not our thing for this blog. We didn’t spend as much time as we could have searching because we were spending time with mom instead, but we did find one good one to share!

The Roasted Bean!

Located inside the Mirage Hotel. On the Vegas strip.

On to the coffee…

The decor of the place was so unique  and cool. There were a collection of vintage coffee pots and tea pots all over the walls. It was a big open space, a lot of seating. It was very fancy. As far as being kid friendly, I would say not particularly but they did have yummy cookies and such kids would enjoy. What we did was grabbed our coffee then walked right across to the kid friendly smoothie and yogurt bar. That’s what I would suggest for families. Overall we were very excited to find this little hidden gem and were well pleased.

Poppa and momma bean each got a blended mocha with an extra shot. The drink was very very good. The price was out of this world. Y’all, brace yourselves, 21 bucks for 2 coffees and a muffin. Ouch! Guess that’s Vegas for you.

On to the bean rating…

Bye bye from the beans

Your favorite beans are back!!!!!!!!!

Hey everybody!!!

Oh how we’ve missed you so! I won’t get too depressing on ya But I do want to say sorry and explain why we haven’t been blogging. Poppa bean fell ill and has been in and out of the hospital, momma beans had some health issues and bean 1 also now has a diagnosis which I may share more about in the near future. So needless to say we’ve been to busy with Dr’s and appts to blog. But we are all okay, everyone is doing better. Praise God!

Coffee can get ya through anything!

This bean family is still as madly in love as ever with coffee. Bean 2 is also sneaking around stealing sips from our cups, even the baby bean loves it.

We are very excited to announce that we are in CA!!!!!!!!!!! We are also hitting up Vegas.

So we have some awesome coffee shops to share with you all. Today there is no coffee shop review but just an update that were back. We hope you all have stuck with us and will continue on this journey along with us. Spread the word, the beans are back!!!!!

We met a very talented balloon man who made an Elmo for bean 2 and his first ever balloon dump truck for bean 1. Took him like a half an hour, it even really dumped!
