I Love my Job

by Meghann on April 22, 2011

Whoa! Time flies when you’re having fun!

I just spent the whole morning photographing food for my latest client’s (Cool Mo’s Coffee) Facebook page. It was 2.5 hours of hot dogs, sandwiches, donuts, muffins, fun drinks, and good conversation. I Love My Job! πŸ™‚

Here’s a sneak peek of a few of my (unedited) favorites.

Do I have you craving Cool Mo’s yet? πŸ˜‰

When I first arrived at 11:00 this morning JB hooked me up with a Peanut Butter Iced Latte.


I know I’m suppose to be cutting back on the fancy coffee drinks, but when I discovered the peanut butter latte was made with actual peanut butter that was stirred directly into the espresso I knew I had to try it.


Real Peanut Butter? Whole Milk? Chocolate syrup? There is nothing low calorie about this drink, but –oh boy – it was good. Like a liquid Reeses Peanut Butter Cup. πŸ™‚ Yum. Yum. Yum.

The hearty oatmeal waffle I had for breakfast was very filling. We had tons of left over food during the shoot, but I wasn’t hungry at all. Luckily we had a group of teenage boys who had no problem making sure the food didn’t go to waste.


It got to the point where they were the ones suggesting things of the menu simply because they wanted to try it themselves. πŸ™‚

I did have half of a beignet. You know, to see what all the fuss was about.


They were tasty. πŸ™‚

I left Cool Mo’s around 2:00 and made a special delivery to Derek’s office to deliver half of a Cuban Sandwich. Poor guy was having a rough day, he needed the pick me up. πŸ™‚

Finally around 3:30 I sat down for lunch.


All the sugar this morning had me craving greens like WHOA. I ended up making a kale salad (massaged with EVOO, salt, and vinegar) with carrot, green beans, olives, raisins, and Gardien ‘chick’n’ tenders.


Just what I needed.


It’s been a good day. I’m ready for the weekend now. I hope it’s ready for me! πŸ™‚

Hmmm…makes me wonder if adding some PB into my morning coffee would be good…? Maybe a little splash of almond milk and I could call it a PB latte?

You do have such a fun job – way to go!
