The Ultimate Coffee Date 2016 #1


Hello, good morning and Happy New Year!  Oh my goodness, we are here for another coffee date AND it’s 2016.  Welcome if you are new and hello again to those who are back for more coffee chat.  So if you are new, here is how this works …

Every FIRST Saturday of each month {if you calendar your blogging this is great to add}

Be yourself, we don’t judge

If we were having coffee, I would share with you  that I am really loving the new look of my blog.  It has inspired me to really want to stay consistent with writing.  I just love it.

If we were having coffee, I would share with you  that I am looking so forward to jumping over from the Samsung Galaxy {sorry Samsung} to the IPhone6S.  Our daughter just got one for Christmas and the family all use Iphones.  I will be making the move by the end of the month and I know it will take me some time to figure the darn thing out.  I am looking so forward to all the cool things I can do with it and I am really jazzed to have the Nike+ Run app {it has more options on it than the Samsung}.

If we were having coffee, I would share with you  that I am getting ready to start running again.  It has been a few months since I have taken my running seriously and I have some training to do and races to run.  I have some new winter running gear and can’t wait to put it on and head out.

If we were having coffee, I would share with you  my favorite {some of them} skin care products.  You can read HERE.  When I do product posts or shopping posts, I only promote or chat about what I would {or already do} use myself.  So in other words, you can trust me.  No BS here.

If we were having coffee, I would share with you  that we had a wonderful New Year’s eve right here at home.  Bubbles, fondue and our favorite New Year’s Eve countdown with Kathy Griffin and Anderson Copper on CNN.  I LOVE spending the evening watching those two, they are hilarious.  I was so super jazzed to see my live tweet go across the screen for millions of people to see …  this was awesome!


If we were having coffee, I would share with you that we enjoyed the first day of the New Year hanging out in Yountville {Napa Valley}.  We shop, have lunch and always stop at Bouchon Bakery for something yummy and a great coffee.  The weather was amazing today and it felt good being outdoors.

If we were having coffee, I would share with you that I am getting ready to do my THIRD Chef V detox cleanse.  I am so looking forward to doing this again and no better time than the first of the year.  I love doing these cleanses and I honestly have nothing but great things to say about it.  I feel amazing, I sleep better, my skin glows and I am just happier.  I will be sharing all of this next week as I start.  Make sure to head back and read all about it.
*I am an affiliate with Chef V because I truly love the cleanse and actually use it a few times a year.  If you do decided to try your own or join me, you are free to use the code FMWC for 55% off your cleanse.  See more details HERE.

If were were having coffee, I would share with you that I treated myself to a new book and I can’t wait to take time and really go through it.
{I Quit Sugar, by Sarah Wilson} looks amazing and I am so excited to change my eating and take even better care of my body.  I want to incorporate as much as I can into the kids diet also.


If we were having coffee, I would share with you my word for the year. You can read it HERE.

If we were having coffee, I would share with you this …  I wish you a Happy and Healthy New Year.

  25. I love that your tweet showed up on tv, that is so awesome! Sadly, Robyn and I were asleep by 10 pm. I haven’t seen a ball drop in like 10 years–I’m so lame! Your day in Yountville sounds great, I only know that town name bc back in the day I used to work for a company and French Laundry was ALL the rage. Have you been? Worth the hype? Hope you have a great week!
