Ultimate Coffee Date – August

This morning I’m happy to be linking up once again with Jill, Nikki and Lynda for the Ultimate Coffee Date. I missed the last two Coffee Dates thanks to vacation in June and the 4th holiday weekend, but I’m so glad we could catch up for a cup this morning!


If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that I cannot believe how fast July flew by! It was a great month filled with lots of time spent with friends and family – I’m looking forward to August bringing more of the same!

If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you after eyeing the Nike Studio Wraps online I was very happy to find these at a Nike outlet for a fraction of the cost! Can’t wait to try them out in Wednesday’s Pilates Barre class. Studio Wrap

If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that I haven’t been sleeping very well lately. Unfortunately, I go through bouts of insomnia from time to time. I have no problem crashing at night, just can’t stay asleep. Thank goodness for coffee 😉

If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that we’re in the middle of a flurry of family birthdays. We celebrated my youngest’s son’s birthday at the Red Sox game last week. My birthday is Monday, my oldest son’s is later this week and then my husband J’s is a little later this month!

If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that we’re driving to Maine today to look at a potential sleep-away camp for my oldest son for next summer. I will admit that the thought of a sleep-away camp unnerves me just a little – I remind myself that we’re just looking.

In fact, I’m sorry to cut our coffee time short, but I need to get everyone organized so we can get on the road!

If we were having coffee together what would you tell me?



  1. I went to sleep away camp for 10 summers (8 weeks every year) and loved it. My best childhood memories are of that time. Both of my kids go now for 3-5 weeks and they both love it. It’s hard to let them go but such a great experience for them. Enjoy your visit. Fun catching up over coffee

    • I can’t wait to try them out! I think they’ll be a great alternative to doing my barre classes barefoot. I’ll be posting more after my class!

  4. I was a summer camp kid but my kids weren’t into it. So, you and Jill will be birthday girls on Monday? Happy Birthday!

  7. Have a safe trip! One day I’m going to try a pure barre class. It’s a great month for birthdays 😉

    It’s still hard to believe it’s August.

    I enjoyed coffee and catching up!

  8. I’ve eyed those wraps too! Definitely share how much you like them. I couldn’t justify the money when I usually go barefoot for yoga/pilates class. Glad you we able to link up today!

  10. This year is just passing by so fast. It really makes you want to stop time and just breathe for a few seconds! I guess that happens when you have kids! Will this be the first sleep away camp for your oldest? My son has asked to do one but I couldn’t see him liking it. He has a hard time at night. Have a great weekend!

    • Yes this will be his first time if he goes next summer. He loved everything he saw on our tour so it looks like I better get use to the idea! I agree this year is passing too quickly!!

  11. So many August birthdays! Mine’s on the 10th. 🙂 Sorry you haven’t been sleeping. Hope the insomnia doesn’t stick around too long. Nice having coffee with you!
