Let’s have coffee… shall we? Grab a cup of joe (or tea or water or whatever strikes your fancy), sit down, and we can catch up about our weekend happenings. Coffee was the theme of the weekend, it seemed, and my little guy even wanted to get in on the action! He kept grabbing momma’s cup, saying, “Coffee!”
I let him pretend without actually tasting the good stuff! He’s got to wait quite a bit longer for the real thing.
My spring break began on Friday. I kicked it off with hosting a play date with my co-workers and their babes in the morning. William and I hung out the rest of the day before going to visit his best bud, Wolfie, for dinner on Friday evening.
They were both holding Shabbat candles and we were singing Shabbat Shalom which is why William was so excited every time we said, “Hey!”
Saturday began with a coffee date with William at Starbucks. I enjoyed a mocha, while William had a blueberry muffin and water.
Cutest little Starbucks date ever.
Later on Saturday, I went to check out the True Runner Spring Gear-Up event. I’d never been in the store before, but was impressed at the great selection of shoes and apparel. I actually ended up buying a pair of CALIA (Carrie Underwood) capris that are just gorgeous! And of course I had to take part in the #WhyIRun photobooth fun.
Yeah, I run for my sanity, yet haven’t been running lately… So, maybe that’s why I’ve been feeling a little cray? (Oy, did I just say cray?!) Actually, I am hoping to get in a couple of runs this week during my spring break!
William and I went to my grandparents’ house on Saturday night. Whenever I mention Mama and Papa, William immediately starts talking about pool and hitting the balls in the pocket. First, he takes out the mini pool table, but eventually goes into the pool room to stand on a bench and reach the big pool table.
He’s seriously such a coordinated toddler! It won’t be long before Papa puts a golf club in his hands! Mama had William talking up a storm the whole night. We were laughing because some of his language is still indecipherable, so after a long sentence / paragraph of him talking, we can catch the last few words. Like I said before, his speech is exploding and he’s able to say more and more everyday!
I received a MASSIVE delivery recently from Influenster. Influenster is a community where you review products, take surveys, and provide feedback. They send you surveys to see if you’re eligible for certain campaigns, and if you are, you get sent whatever box it is. Then, you’re asked to complete a survey about the product. You can work to earn a “badge” by completing different tasks, as many or as few as you’d like. Typical tasks include sharing on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and/or Pinterest. Sometimes tasks involve writing a review on a certain website, blogging, or vlogging. Like I said, they’re all optional, so no pressure. And the best part? Anyone can sign up! Not just bloggers! I’ve had several of my friends sign up. (Sign up HERE if you’d like! It is a referral link and I get “points” for people joining.) So the best box I’ve ever gotten from Influenster? THIS:
Seriously, how amazing?! I am so excited to be able to make coffee at home now, and the flavors they sent are awesome, too! There is a breakfast blend, dark magic, and caramel vanilla creme. They also sent a “My K-cup,” so I can use regular ground coffee if I run out of K-cups. Totally stoked and definitely the best box I’ve received from Influenster!
Speaking of coffee, Sunday morning started with some coffee, as well. (Check out the first picture in this post.) We met my grandpa Poppy out for breakfast! Some of my earliest memories with Poppy are of him taking me and my siblings out to breakfast at a local deli, so taking William out to breakfast with him was just as fun as I remembered when I was younger.
Everyone is SO happy!!! I love cooking breakfast daily, but there is something extra special about going out to breakfast, especially with your baby and his great-grandpa and cousins!
As you may know, Sunday was the first official day of spring. St. Louis welcomed spring by SNOWING!
Boo, snow. Luckily, it didn’t stick and we should have warmer temperatures later this week. Let’s hope… I want to get out there and run!
Are you a coffee drinker? Do you go out or make it at home?
