Sometimes you just need to hang out with a girlfriend and chat over coffee.
I’m joining up with my new friends today for the Ultimate Coffee Date a virtual hangout with the girls to catch up and relax. I hope you’ll join us too.
If we were having coffee I would tell you…it’s been way too long since we hung out alone without the kids and husbands! I would tell you that you looked great and did you get your hair cut? Big hugs all around.
If we were having coffee I would tell you…I no longer do the flavored coffees-yes I have even given up the sugar free flavors as I am trying to cut out more processed foods and basically things I cannot pronounce. I now use cinnamon in my coffee and it’s really good-try it! I’ve been drinking tons of lemon water too. I think my skin is looking better. I’ve been eating cleaner the last few weeks and I feel great.
If we were having coffee I would tell you…I am so glad that it is finally spring because this winter was brutal. I finally took out my spring bag today. What do you think?
If we were having coffee I would tell you…I am so excited for our huge MOMS RUN THIS TOWN event today. We have over 125 moms from all over Northern Virginia coming to do a “Run Your Own Race, At Your Own Pace” event. It is mock race designed to allow everyone to try a new distance or goal to prepare for their own upcoming race. It’s a non competitive way for us all to run together at our own paces and distances. We’ve mapped out a route, have supported water stops, raffles, giveaways, demo shoes and a post run yoga class. It’s going to be so incredible and of course I will take lots of pictures to show you.
If we were having coffee I would tell you…It’s going to be a crazy weekend! I have another exciting event on Sunday. We are invited to a brunch on Sunday hosted by Bravo and Top Chef as a post White House Correspondence Dinner Event. I have been dying to go to one of these for years! Usually tons of celebs are there and I’m hoping I see my boyfriend there. You know Bradley Cooper. My husband thinks I am a little wacky but indulges my ongoing fantasy. He’s a good sport. I know the next question-I have NO idea what I am going to wear. I attempted to do a Rent the Runway dress again but they just came and no dice. So freaking out a little but I will figure something out. I called Rent the Runway and they are going to overnight me a few more dresses to try. I will keep you posted on how that goes.
If we were having coffee I would tell you… we are doing our practice 5k for Girls on The Run on Tuesday. I’ve been coaching a team this spring with my teenage daughter-how fun is that? It’s been a great bonding experience for us and I am so grateful that we’ve had the opportunity to do it together. Sometimes, one of the girls will say or do something and my daughter and I will just have this moment. We don’t have to say anything but we both laugh inside because we remember the drama from when she was that age. Our 5k is coming up in 2 weeks and the girls are starting to get excited about it.
If we were having coffee I would tell you…I am so glad that school is almost over. My daughter just took the ACT’s and that was so stressful for her and for me. Well you know how it is. She studied so much and did really well on them. I am really proud of her. My son is still enjoying the ease of his last year of middle school. Oh next year will be a shocker. For now, he is just having fun as a lacrosse goalie.
If we were having coffee I would tell you…I can’t believe my 19th wedding anniversary is next week! Where did the time go? I’m looking forward to spending a romantic evening with my husband at The Inn at Little Washington in a few weeks.
If we were having coffee what would you tell me? I’ve been rambling on now it’s your turn…
Please remember to stop by and say hi to my hosts as well
