Coffee talk: August

Sadly July has come and gone and we are now in the month of August.  The first Saturday of the month can only mean one thing!  It’s time for another coffee date.


I’m excited to be linking up for our monthly coffee date.   I‘m linking up with Coco @ Got 2 Run 4 MeLynda @ Fitness Mom Wine Country, & Deborah @ Confessions of a Mother

Man, this post is bittersweet to write because August means so many things.  It means back to work, back to school, starting first grade for Sara, B starting in day care.  Ugh… the list goes on!!  I’m soaking up my time and moments with these two which is really why I haven’t been blogging as much this summer.


If we were having coffee I would tell you that I am trying to make these next  2 1/2 weeks go by SLOWLY but I know it’s not going to happen.  Who am I kidding?!!?  Next month when we meet again for coffee I will have a first grader and I am sure I will be running around like a crazy lady!

If we were having coffee I would tell you that we had an awesome little family getaway last week in Wisconsin!!  Lots and lots of family time, boating, swimming, beaching and some amazing ice cream too!


If were having coffee, I would tell you that lately the Hubs and I joke about the farm to table dinners that we are having.  Fresh garden tomatoes grilled, with fresh pesto and lots of green beans.  All of the early summer rain has made for some amazing and tasty garden delights!




If we were having coffee I would tell you that I ran over 100 miles this month with a sub 8 minute mile.  I never planned for running that much but last week I realized it would be close and would just need to push myself a little harder this week!


If we were having coffee I would tell you that this happened this week…



We are busy cutting two teeth, rolling all over the place and attempting to move and crawl.  Busy busy boy I have!!  I’m working on an official 6 month post to share with all of you.

If we were having coffee I would you tell you and ask you for your best food prep secrets and tips.  I’ve been back on Pinterest looking for some new recipes and idea for the school year.  I know my weeks will involve lots of crock pot and simple meals and I need to get back to food prep Sundays!  Right now, though I am just having so much fun playing and hanging with my kids!  Ugh why does summer have to end?

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I LOVE NAP TIME!

If we were having coffee I would tell you that the Hubs and I are celebrating 7 years of marriage on Monday and we are headed out to Seasons 52 on Sunday!!  Can’t wait to try out this new restaurant and I am even more excited for a date night!

Tell me, what’s going on with you??!?!

  4. Laura, wow what a great family coffee post. Congrats on the anniversary. The 100 miles in a month? Holly cow and sub 8? I am so inspired now. I need to really step up my game. I take a nap every day. Seriously no joke. I make time for at least a half hour each day and I have for years. I firmly believe in nap time. We are starting school in two weeks so I hear you about meal prepping. Have a fabulous weekend and thanks for coffee.
