What to drink

I'm working on a brochure this afternoon and wanted something nice to drink with it. Is it iced coffee weather? I was told no. Bummer. So I put up this desktop wallpaper instead, and now I'm going to make myself a hot latte.

Hmmm.... not iced coffee weather here, either. But it sure LOOKS nice outside! Yeah, stick with your hot drinks for a while... you chill easily, y'know. :)

Jess said...

Yes. I'm a weakling.

Michelle Engel Bencsko said...

Heck, it's 90 degrees in NJ. It's totally iced coffee weather. So, just pretend you're here.

*happy belated birthday, by the way!

Jess said...

Thanks, Michelle! It's 38 and cloudy here. I'm so jealous.

Peace&Love said...

It is definately ice coffee weather here in NYC it's 80 degrees, it was 90 yesterday I shall drink one on your behalf. : )

Jessie said...

Everyday's coffee weather here in Seattle, whether it's iced or hot, sunny or pouring rain, so go for it!

Tegan and Tage said...

It's 65 degrees in Nor Cal right now and it STILL gave me a big fat No. I've got to say though, I'd rather have a hot beverage in my 65 degree weather than in your 38 degrees.

Jess said...

Yeah, me too.

Christy said...

I'm in the BC Canada and right now it is sunny, cold, windy and it was hailing and raining earlier. So I can't tell from hour to hour what kind of drink weather it is here :-)

Dallas Ann said...

I'm a rebel and drink iced coffee year round!

Jess said...

Well, that's just plain craziness.

Lori said...

It's ALWAYS coffee weather for me, be it iced, hot, latte, cap. Doesn't matter. Caffeine is good. And so is that wallpaper.

Donnell said...

Yay! It's iced coffee weather here. Although I think it's a bit chilly.

Andrea said...

Iced coffee/Frappucino weather here in Phoenix.

Love the background. Surprised it doesn't have an orange straw.

Lisa said...

It snowed a little bit, but I'd still go for the iced coffee over the warm one! Gotta think spring!

I agree with Michelle, just pretend you're somewhere warmer. Like Sydney, Australia, where it was 29C(84F) yesterday, and 24C (75F) today. Not bad for Autumn weather :-)

So funny...this is my background as well. I grabbed it from the amazing site you recommended. My students love to see what I am going to put up.

For being from Minnesota, Jess, yer a wimp. :P I drink three giant iced macchiatos @ B&N every Saturday starting when the mercury hits 45 or so.

You know...T-shirt and light khakis weather? ;]

Kayla said...

I drink iced coffee any time of the year! I LOVE hot coffee but iced coffee is a favorite of mine and I can't help but drink it all the time!

The Needle Shop said...

Hooray for team iced coffee! All year round, cuz it's hot inside my mouth. :)

Jess said...

I guess 98.6 does qualify as iced coffee weather.

kat said...

It's only 41 in MN right now. But I have a home-made frappachino in my hand. And made with leftover cold coffee, local cream, sugar free hershey's syrup and splenda, so it's not even that naughty. Mmmmmm. I say go for it regardless of what the website tells you.

Larissa said...

didn't you post a homemade iced coffee recipe here once? don't let some pierced barista boss you around.

jenmenke said...

Awesome illustration. I assume you did it? Very cool. I do graphic design, but, ironically, can't draw worth beans. Except cute stick figures. Love you site.

Jess said...

No, no, I didn't do it; just fetched the wallpaper from one of my favorite desktops sites. I've updated the post with an image credit, which I forgot! Thanks.

squareby said...

Any weather is iced coffee weather! It was warm down here, but today I had to wear a long-sleeved shirt ... weather's weird.

circlelinestudio said...

Hot coffee, iced coffee, even luke warm bottom of the pot coffee, anyway you fix it you just can't go wrong when you've got to buckle down and work on a new project.

EvaBabeDesigns said...

Definately Iced Coffee weather in Santa Barbara although my new favorite drink is Zevia (the no-cal soda sweetened with Stevia).

Patty said...

I say it's iced coffee weather whenever you want it to be :)

maleahbliss said...

I get my "hot chocolate" frozen" every time. (It's like a frapacino only ithout the coffee.) Even in January. Have at that iced latte. :)

smallgrapes said...

Isn't it ALWAYS iced coffee weather???

OR, you know it is always 5 o'clock somewhere...well, its always 70+ degrees somewhere, too.

Jessica said...

This is so cute! But I'm afraid it'll make me crave Starbucks even more than I do now!

BetsyE said...

That's so cute! And actually, my nephew, Tom, is Simple Desktops! Cool!

Mod Podge Amy said...

Lovely B. said...

In my oppinion, it's always a good day for iced coffee... regardless of the weather!

Abigail Leigh said...

Did you make that wallpaper? I'm very inspired by the minimalism of it.
