September Coffee Date

wp-1472756999291.jpgToday I'm joining the Ultimate Coffee Date for some catching up!

If we were having coffee, you would notice that I'm drinking tea.  I gave up my coffee addiction several years ago.  I usually drink a cup of yerba mate in the morning and then a cup of green tea.

If we were having coffee, I'd tell you that this is my birthday weekend.  I do have a few fun things planned for this weekend.  Last night I went to see the Houston Symphony play music of the Rolling Stones.  I thought it was awesome! Next up, on Sunday, the hubs and I are headed to Paint on Tap at Southern Star Brewery.  Basically... paint a picture and drink craft beer (similar to Pinot's Pallete).

If we were having coffee, I'd tell you about my new decal from This Crazy Life Designs. I think it is pretty awesome, and looks great on my window.  I've saved the heart for when I complete 26.2 to stick on my window. She does custom orders too.  You can use code 2016vickisp to save $1.00 off your order.


If we were having coffee, I'd show you the teaser photo from Level Up Runs.  It is the medal for their next run... it's Harry Potter themed (more info coming soon). I showed my niece, Hannah, and she was super excited.  We are going to do the virtual run together... virtually.  You can use code SAVE10 to save 10% on registration at Level Up Runs.wp-1472847209942.jpg

Speaking of Harry Potter, have you read the new Harry Potter Book - Harry Potter And The Cursed Child?  Hannah and I are both reading it... she finished in 3 days, I'm still working on it. It is good so far, but it threw me that it would be in play format.


Well... those are the things that I have on my mind for this coffee date... what would you tell me, if we were having coffee?

I'm linking up with Got 2 Run 4 Me, Fitness Mom Wine Country, & Confessions of a Mother Runner for the Ultimate Coffee Date!

  1. I enjoy tea...but I LOVE the taste of coffee :) I could drink decaf all day...I don't need the caffiene, just enjoy the taste. My birthday is next weekend! Happy birthday to you!! Your art/drinking date sounds like a lot of fun! My husband is a big craft beer fan and would probably "enjoy" and event like that! I like that car sticker! I would totally add more distances to it just so I could have the accountability to try longer distances :) I saw that Level Up medal the other day and wasn't quite sure what it was referring to...shows how much I know about Harry!

  2. i love that decal! Hope you have a fabulous birthday weekend. So glad you joined us for coffee today

  3. Oh, paint on tap sounds like fun. I wonder if my husband would give it a try? Or mind if I went with our (22yo) son? That running sticker is so cool! Thanks for joining us for coffee - or tea!

  4. Happy Birthday!! I love craft beer; my boyfriend is a brewer at Evolution here in Maryland. :)

  5. Happy birthday to you too! I like that you can totally customize the decal as much as you want.

  6. We ended up not going, we had stayed up too late visiting with our neighbors... it is rescheduled for later this month.

  7. Thanks! It was fun "catching up"!

  8. I love this coffee date! I would also be drinking tea as the smell alone of coffee puts me off :/
    I LOVE your decal. My husband isn't into having things on the car... but maybe I can talk him into this one. It's so pretty!
    Would you believe I haven't read any of the Harry Potter books yet? They are on my to-read list... hopefully later this year.

  9. ps. Happy Birthday!!!! I hope you had a great celebration Vicki!

  10. The Harry Potter books are so good!

  11. I'm a huge fan of the Harry Potter books, too! I never had a coffee addiction, though. Luckily, I guess.
