Virtual Coffee

Friday, June 25, 2010

It's Tuesday...okay so it's Friday. Let's have coffee.
It hasn't really even been a long week or a bad week...but a week.
If we were really meeting for coffee today I would tell you......

that it has been hot, hot, hot here...whew! Many, many days in a row in the 90's...very hot and humid. Thank God for swimming pools and a/c.

that I made these blueberry muffins this morning with fresh blueberries, really simple and delicious. The recipe is from Honey & Jam, find it here.

that the kids are having so much fun swimming this year. We have spent a lot of time at Grandma & Grandpa's pool and they are loving it!

that we went to the zoo this week and the kids got to bottle-feed baby goats. I am not a huge fan of the Petting Zoo area myself but it was really cute, they loved it.

that I joined Weight Watchers last week....I could do a whole post (or a separate blog) on that subject but I will just say it is going okay so far...wish me luck though!

that I got this awesome light up globe yesterday at my favorite antique store here in town...just $5 for this vintage Fisher Price beauty...I was so excited!

I am spending the weekend with my, no cooking, antiquing, girl talk....ahhhhh, I can't wait!

If Starbucks was delivering this morning what would you get? Live dangerously!
Anything new and exciting going on with you? I'm listening.....
Wishing everyone a fantastic weekend, I hope to have lots of pictures to share from my weekend away!

(The kids and I dorking out in Photobooth)
Peace Out.


  1. I love that light up globe! Have an awesome weekend, I know you will! If starbucks was delivering I'd get a hot's actually cloudy and in the 60's here this AM. The photobooth pic is adorable, BTW.

  2. Have a fabulous weekend!! Sounds like so much fun :)
    And yeah... I'm not a fan of petting zoo's either. I wish the kids felt the same way!

  3. I'm so very jealous of your weekend! I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time. Me, I'll be stuck at work for yet another Friday night on an updrage. This is getting OLD. And speaking of WW...I've been thinking about joining again. If I do, we'll have to swap "food finds".

  4. Starbucks delivery would have been awesome this morning. Anything caffeinated would have done...oh wait, it would still do. It's been a dragging around kind of day.
    Enjoy your weekend! Sounds like you have some awesome plans.

  5. Not much new. Nothing too exciting. We have a pool party tomorrow. A dad rock pool party with all the guys and their families from The Mr.'s band.

    Have more fun than you can handle this weekend. Can't wait to hear all about it.

  6. i'm trying really hard to not be jealous of your getaway. it sounds like so very much fun. maybe i'll just drown my sorrows in another cup of coffee and some not homemade muffins. take lots of pictures, k?

    it's been hot here this week too, but like 113 degrees hot. pretty much burn your buns when you sit down kind of hot. oh well, at least there's no humidity.

    have a happy weekend!

  7. So jealous of your weekend! I've been counting WW points lately and it definitely does help, but I am NOT going to any meetings. I hate the motivational/ self-help talk that goes on at those meetings. I just want the handy tips and recipes. So I bought myself the giant WW complete cookbook and the Hungry Girl cookbook instead. And I only spent what I'd spend on one month of meetings. Good luck!

  8. I totally get you on the heat. Thank God for a/c.
    Oh, I love globes! And that weekend for you coming up? Sounds a-ma-zing. Truly:) There's nothing like a bit of girl time.
    Hmmm. Live dangerously? I'd ....order... a cappuccino. With some crazy flavor. Not insane, just crazy. Like coconut, not orange. Heh heh.
    I'm so tired--I've slightly missed internet world this week I've been gone with the family up north on vacation, and will try to blog tomorrow.... I took a ton of pics the first 1/2 of the week, the most personal part, incidentally:)

  9. Here- heat, hot, humid. Just trying to get by with that. Lots of pool days too.

    Oh, and I'm sooo jealous of your girl getaway. I just may crash it!

    And your light up globe? Coolest globe ever.


leave me a know you wanna.
