I don't usually post on Saturdays - but I can never turn a Saturday morning coffee date so I linked up with the Ultimate Coffee Date for a little coffee and chit chat with Thanks CoCo, Deborah and Lynda for hosting!! Be sure to click the badge below to see what everyone else is up to on this lovely Saturday!
I sure wish I could have a REAL coffee date with you today - but this is just going to have to do. If we were sitting in my favorite coffee shop with a yummy, iced caramel latte with almond milk, I would mostly likely have to talk a little bit about Little M. What can I say, I'm a little bit into/slightly obsessed with her. She has been so much fun (read: A LOT of WORK) lately! It's so amazing to watch your child grow from being a little snuggly baby into a little KID! Her personality is coming out so strongly and she's getting tall and she's walking and she shuts the door for me when I ask her to. What?! We got a ton of hand-me-down clothes this week (the best kind!) and in the box were some new shoes. We've never been big shoe wearers, but since she's walking I figure she should probably wear shoes, at least when we're in public. When I put those little sneakers on her feet - telling her that she was going to run SO FAST - my heart broke a little bit. I want my baby to stay a barefoot gypsy baby forever. Those shoes make her look SO BIG! Tears.
While we're sipping on coffee I would also probably tell you that I'm going to bite the bullet and sign up for my second half marathon this year! One of my new year's goals was to run 2 this year so I guess I just HAD to! Haha. I'm really excited to do my first TEXAS race, and I've been meeting some new friends here who are planning on doing it too, so I'll have some new running buddies!
While I love starting my Saturday with coffee - I also love FOOTBALL on Saturdays! We can't forget to chat about the fact that college football starts this week! My hubby's team is away this weekend so we'll have to wait another week to cheer them on in person. But don't worry, I've got Little M's game day outfit all ready!! Unfortunately, we haven't gotten cable/Sling/an antenna yet in our new house so I'm feeling totally out of the football loop. Who would have thought that I would be the one asking for cable to watch football before my hubby?! We've gotta figure something out soon before I go into withdrawals!
I'd also probably tell you how excited I've been about the weather lately! I know, I know - you know you live in South Texas when it's 89 degrees and cloudy and you're texting everyone you know about the amazing weather! I'm becoming hopeful for decent running weather in the near future - and Little M LOVES being outside, especially playing catch with Miss Oakley out in our backyard. It's MUCH more fun for all of us when we aren't melting!!
Finally, I'd probably ask you for some book recommendations! I have been so bad about reading any adult books since Little M was born. I want to get back into the habit of reading in the evenings but I need a good book to get me going! Our library is less than desirable and I don't want to buy a book unless I know it's going to be great! Any ideas? Or any cool book swaps you know of to get used books?
Thanks for having coffee with me today!
how about you?
