{Virtual Coffee}

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

Good morning.
Tuesday morning; rainy,  a little chilly and super dreary and just two days before Thanksgiving.
I told you last week that I love Thanksgiving, I really do but the one thing I do not love
about it is knowing that it is only days away makes me a little nervous because then I know we
have such a short amount of time until Christmas is here.
I am so not ready for it.
Are you?

So, if we were really meeting for coffee this morning...

pull up a chair, grab a seat on the couch, plop your kids on the floor and grab a cup.
And if you are not really a coffee drinker I can fix you a cup of hot tea...diet coke? water?
I think a peppermint mocha sounds really good this morning...I would be happy to pick up
one for you, too.
And if you are lucky, Charlotte will probably share her apple pie, she has been baking them a
lot lately. I have to say, I like this little pie as much as her I think, it is so cute.
Looking for an awesome gift for a little girl?
I love all of the Melissa & Doug play food, we have a lot of it and it is well worth the money.
And they are not even paying me to say that ; )

You know if we were really meeting for coffee today we would have to talk about
Thanksgiving plans, if you are celebrating.
What are your plans?
Are you travelling?
I'm not exactly sure how we are going to work it out yet but we will be celebrating with
my mom's side of the family and with Eric's parents.
It's always a little tough because they both eat at 1:00 so we have to compromise on where
to go first, where to eat, etc.
I am looking really forward to seeing all of my family and eating lots of really yummy
homemade food...I just love Thanksgiving and all of our family traditions.

What else have we been up to around here this week....?
Lots of laundry, cleaning and organizing and we got to play with my two nieces all
day yesterday. My little Charlotte is such a good helper. She loves to try and calm the
baby down, help feed her, play peek-a-boo and read to her.
It is just too sweet.

I am looking so forward to hanging out with my BFF(yes, as a matter of fact I am still in 7th grade,
thank you very  much) and her kids this week.
And I am super happy that I will get to see several of my other favorite girl friends this
week. I do not get to see my friends nearly enough and I am so ready for a girl's night out.

Well, that's about it for us around here today.
Tell me what's going on with you...what are your plans for the week?
Do you have a to-do list a mile long...lots of cooking to do?
Maybe I should get us a refill first though...

Thanks so much for stopping by this morning for a cuppa, as my friend Melissa would say.
Oh--and you should make sure you stop by there for a visit, she's got a lot of big things
going on lately...and she is always a great coffee date.
Have a good one!

  5. I love your blog so much!
    today my coffee tasted gross so I dumped it out. thinking of going to mcdonalds for a mocha frappe!
    I need to go shopping for a new outfit. I hate all my clothes.
    we are going to hubby's sisters for thanksgiving. my family is 9 hours away so we don't see them over the winter, too much snow to drive through to get there and then get stuck in a storm! ugh!
    guess what?! savannah is going back to public school, 6th grade middle school (UGH) and is soooooo HAPPY about it, which helps put me at peace! I hope she does well!
    okay, that's all I got!
    have a GREAT thanksgiving!

  6. Those photos of your Starbucks coffee are making me want to go get one! After I drop the kiddo at preschool. :)
    We are headed north to Seattle for Thanksgiving with my parents! Can't wait! I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving! (And to answer your questions on Pinterest about my tattoo with white ink - I love it!)

  7. Hi gorgeous gal- I am wanting Audrey to want some of that food that Miss.C is serving up - that is good looking play food!

    I'll be getting her to put that in her letter to Santa!!!

    I'm needing some peppermint coffee this morning...feel like i need to just hang out on your front balcony in the cilly air and watch all our kids running together...but I got big decisions to keep making and you got Thanksgiving to balance...so for now I'll just do coffee...posting mine in the morning as watched National Lampoons Christmas Vacation here tonight with Ikea meatballs & mash- and never got back to my laptop!

    See ya then lovely...Melissa xx

  8. Happy Thanksgiving! We have plans for both Thursday and Friday - neither involves me making a turkey :( .... So I'll make a mini turkey dinner for just us on Sunday. Think we'll be sick of turkey by then? Nah!!

    Thanks for dropping by with your java today :)

  9. happy thanksgiving, amy!
    hope you enjoy your girls' night out :)
