The Ultimate Coffee Date #3

Good morning, welcome to another Ultimate Coffee Date  with myself, Nikki and Jill.  Find a quiet spot and settle in and join us for some chat time and coffee, tea or whatever you enjoy this Saturday morning.  

While we were having coffee this morning, I would tell you  that our son Noah just graduated from the 8th grade the other day and we are so proud of him and all the hard work he has done during middle school.  He suffers from an excessive form of OCD and it is a challenge everyday for him.  With the help of our school IEP program and amazing teaching staff, Noah was able to stay on the honor roll for the last three years and play sports.  Something that is more difficult for him because of the OCD.  We could not be more proud.

While we were having coffee this morning, I would tell you  that I took a chance and entered the Nike Women’s Race  lottery for San Francisco.  I have always dreamed of running the race, but never even took the chance since it was a full marathon.  This year they are doing a half and since I am completing my first half marathon in a few weeks, I decided to really go for it and enter myself into the drawing.  We shall see what happens.  I can’t imagine what it be like to run such an amazing race.


While we were having coffee this morning, I would tell you  that my hubby and I went to the local garden store and I picked up the most amazing and beautiful Dahlias.  We spent his day off work last week cleaning the back patio area and planting the new flowers.  I can’t believe how gorgeous these are.  I love waking up in the morning and having my tea out back and sitting and enjoying the quiet time.


While we were having coffee this morning, I would tell you  that we have been grilling our dinners lately.  I love this time of year and cooking on the grill.  Everything and anything goes on there.  We did a super great Grilled Shrimp and Jicama recipe just recently.  I could not get enough, I love grilled shrimp.

While we were having coffee this morning, I would tell you  that our oldest son is coming home next week from Santa Barbara for a two week visit.  I am so looking forward to just hugging him and seeing his face, since that horrific nightmare a few weeks ago in Isla Vista {Santa Barbara}.  The shootings that had taken place right in his neighborhood had me so scared and worried.  My heart and prayers go out to those families who suffered from such a tragedy.

While we were having coffee this morning, I would tell you that I love having our coffee dates.  I so enjoy reading all the comments and link ups. I can take my time to go through each one and get to know you better.  So thank you for taking time with us and sharing.

  1. That’s amazing that your son is doing so well. Those are hard issues to overcome for a young boy and very stressful for all of you I’m sure. Hope you get into Nike. I did the DC race last year and it was so much fun. Great swag too. Good luck with the half in Napa can’t wait to hear about it. Great catching up over coffee today. Have a great weekend!

    • Thank you for stopping by Deborah. Yes everyday is a struggle for all of us, as we never know how bad the OCD can get, but Noah is amazing and really tries hard to work through it. I am super jazzed to share the Napa run once done and really getting nervous. Happy Saturday:)
