Virtual Coffee Date: COME JOIN!
I am currently sipping a Coffee Frapp with Soy and would love for you to join me in relishing this fabulous fall day. Not to worry- I always buckle my seat belt-I just snapped this before getting out of the car to deliver the hubby a caffeinated treat. I love meeting my best friends for coffee and wanted to sit down and share what I would love to chat about if we were meeting. Here is the last Coffee Date.
If we were having coffee today I would tell you about how exciting this season has been. With trips to the farms, Vertuccio & Schnepfs, the cooler weather, and two of the happiest toddlers I know. These two are inseparable. They play together, sing together, and take care of each other. Now that The Toddler is turning THREE- cue alligator tears- I am going to start referring to him as Raymond-his middle name. He will soon be a preschooler and then we will be sending him off to Kindergarten so I think this will do just fine.
If we were having coffee today I would tell you about how excited I am about hitting my weight loss goals. I don’t talk about this much but I have struggled to lose any baby weight after Sweet Em was born. I lost all of my weight with Raymond by 6 weeks postpartum(but oh yes, I was still fluffy) and my body decided to keep every once of jiggle for an entire year this time with Em. Finally my hard work is paying off- I know I am extremely allergic to dairy and gluten and in two months I have dropped four pants sizes. I feel better and I fit into all of my pre-pregnancy clothes but I still have 15lbs to go to reach college weight. That’s a lofty goal but I would settle(happily) with tightening up my back and stomach. Healthy is bigger than a number.
If we were having coffee today I would tell you about the art projects we do in the morning and afternoon. Both of my toddlers love drawing, painting, and playing with our homemade Play Doh. I was saddened to see that all Play Doh in stores are made with Gluten which we are highly allergic to. I finally made a winning batch and am excited to share our Allergy-Friendly Recipe next week.
If we were having coffee today I would tell you about how head over heels excited I was to receive an invitation to Zinburger’s Pre-Opening Celebration! That was definitely a happy mail box day for this lady! Thank you Becca for the fabulous invitation-I can’t wait to try out the new menu this Saturday!
If we were having coffee today I would tell you about how excited I am to meet local bloggers and businesses this weekend at the Creative Meet Up by Crest + Bloom. The first Meet Up looked amazingly beautiful and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us this weekend!
If we were having coffee today what would you share about?
What coffee(or tea) would you love to sip?
Please share I would love to hear from you!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
