Coffee Talk: June

Happy Saturday Friends

It’s my favorite post of the month!Ultimate-Coffee-Date-Badge-e1416682466503-300x300

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

It’s JUNE!  It’s a brand new month and the weather is getting better and better each day!!

Grab a cup of coffee with me… maybe you have transitioned to iced coffee!

If we were having coffee I would tell you that this little lady turns 6 and finishes kindergarten next Thursday.

IMG_3510.JPGTime has flown by!  I swear it was just the first day of school! But this little lady is summer and camp ready!  Today is her birthday party!  Let the week of celebrating begin!

If we were having coffee I would tell you that as cute as this little man is I would love to get his naps a little more consolidated.  While we have had some better days he is still this 45 minute napper.  Right now napping 4 times a day.  I keep waiting for it to change!  I know nothing lasts forever. However, nights are really pretty good so I can’t complain.  Plus, he is seriously a happy guy!!


If we were having coffee I would tell you that my friend and I just booked a trip to Arizona for early November!  We are planning to go to Scottsdale and make a long day trip to the Grand Canyon.  Any Arizona readers out there?  Advice?  Restaurants?

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I had plans to try to get a post baby race in but it still hasn’t happened.  I guess I’ve been perfectly happy with my long runs on the weekends and not being tied to a certain race.  I’m not much of a summer racer since I’m not a fan of hot weather running but maybe I will start to look for a fall 1/2 marathon!  I’m on track to run over 20 miles this week and last month ran just about 80 miles!!  It feels amazing to be back.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I am counting down the days till the local farmers markets open!!  There are two I typically go to!  I can’t wait!!!  Have you started shopping local at your markets?

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I’m almost done with week one of The 30 Clean and it’s been great!!  I’ve been dealing with the typical “flutox”  symptoms this week.  Headaches… headaches and more headaches, but man do I have a whole lot of energy!!  I have had to spend a lot more time in the kitchen so that’s been hard but we’ve had some amazing dinners this week!!  The Hubs loved this easy Tandoori Chicken and I have to admit it was the first time I boiled chicken!  SOOO speedy!  I also made this sauce and ate it on top of zoodles yesterday!! AMAZING.

Plus, have you guys seen this??



It just hit the stores at Trader Joes and after a couple of visits to my local TJ’s where I was told it was sold out I finally struck gold yesterday!!

SOOOO much easier then ricing cauliflower and you can’t beat the $1.99 price tag!  You can find it in the freezer section at Trader Joes IF you are lucky!!  Last night we ate it with some clean salsa and cilantro and lime shredded chicken!  Yummy!!!

That’s all I got for this month!  I’m off to get a run in before Sara’s soccer game and then her party this afternoon!!!  It’s a very busy weekend!!!

What do you have going on?

    Happy Birthday to the little one. Both of them are adorable. Hot weather racing is difficult! But, fall will be here before you can blink. I’ve never been to the Grand Canyon. That will be awesome. Enjoy!

    Oh, she is such a little mini-me of you! I was just at TJs and they did not have that, but they did have their frozen bake-and-serve chocolate croissants …. Thanks for joining the coffee date.

  5. I’ve been seeing the new TJ rice cauliflower all over the place. Although, I haven’t been to the store yet to get them. I’m glad you liked it! I’ll have to give it a try. Happy birthday to your kiddo!! Graduating kindergarten is a huge step!!

  6. Sweet pics of the kids! I have been to Phoenix twice in the last year- can’t go wrong in that area, I definitely had fun in Scottsdale, no bad meals at all 🙂 That rice cauliflower looks great! Florida seems like the last to get anything cool though but I will look! Thanks!

  7. Your kiddos are so stinkin’ cute!! ♥ I also cannot wait for the farmer’s markets. They are open here, but it seems like we’re always busy. We haven’t made it to one yet. I need to change that!

  8. WHAT!?! I was at Trader Joe’s yesterday! That is AWESOME. I made some zucchini noodles with a Vegetizer that is like a pencil sharpener. Even easy enough to use and clean that I made a big dish.

    Your kids are the cutest.

    Totally agree on summer running. Remember how hot it was at the women’s half when we met IRL??

    Ahh, I hope you have fun in Arizona! I’m going to be somewhere around there in early December for a rotation! :]!

    I still have yet to find a farmer’s market around here, but next month, I should be back in a town where there are two of em’, so I’m excited about that! 😀

    Your kids are super adorable!
