Hey guys! Can you believe that our last coffee date was in August? I had planned to make it a monthly thing but completely spaced it. Since we are obviously due, grab some coffee or tea and let’s catch up!
If we were having coffee I would probably order hot coffee. I am very seasonal about my coffee, if the weather is warm I am all about the iced. When it is cold (or you know, under 70), I am all about the hot coffee. Recently the early mornings have been cool enough for me to enjoy my coffee hot. If we were both in Tucson, I’d probably see if you wanted to grab a donut to go with our coffees as well. I have not been to Amy’s Donuts since this past summer, but their Elvis donut is calling my name.
I would want to hear all about your upcoming holiday plans. Do you have a long weekend coming up? If so, are you going anywhere? What are you doing for Thanksgiving? I am super excited to be going to visit my brother and sister-in-law in Oregon in a few days, I have missed them tons! I am also excited about some fall weather and rain. While it is cooling off in Tucson, it is still pretty warm and it has been pretty dry the last couple of months.
We are taking a break from hosting Thanksgiving this year, which as it turns out, means we will be having two Thanksgivings! I really love Thanksgiving. To me, it is totally a holiday for hanging out with family and enjoying some of the best comfort foods. Also, the traditional Thanksgiving dinner is an all-time favorite of mine. I am so excited for stuffing, sweet potatoes and green beans (I like turkey too, but I am all about the Thanksgiving sides). I am also all about the pecan pie, which I try to limit to just Thanksgiving because it is a serious calorie bomb. If you know of a lighter pecan pie recipe that is awesome, please let this girl know.
I’d probably tell you about my favorite little girl’s birthday plans. She will be two this month (slow down time) and when I asked what she wanted to do for her birthday, her response was “cake.” The hubs and I were having a hard time deciding what to do for her birthday but ultimately decided to have a series of small activities and gatherings so she could be celebrated all week and get to enjoy more one on one time with family, rather than having a big party. I am super excited to celebrate my baby girl’s big day and am thinking that I need to be careful with how much cake is going to be around.
I’d love to hear how you and yours are doing. How’s work? How are the kids? The fur babies?
We are all good and keeping busy over here. I have been studying for my Group Instructor certification and it has been fun (I miss school now that it’s not a regular part of my life) but it is a real challenge to find time to study. It is part of my continuing education for my personal trainer certification and I am so glad that started early so I can take my time a little.
I will leave you with this beautiful sunrise I stumbled out into the other day. I left my house at just the right time and was treated to such a beautiful display. I just love this time of year.
Your turn! Tell me something that is going on in your life. What’s your favorite holiday? What are you looking forward to or working on?
Hope you have a great day!
