April’s Ultimate Coffee Date

The Ultimate Coffee Date

It’s the first Saturday of the month, and you know what that means…it’s time for the Ultimate Coffee Date. Thanks to Coco, Lynda and Deborah, as always, for hosting! Be sure to check out the link-up and see what the other ladies are dishing about.

If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that I’m joining for coffee a little later than usual this morning because I just couldn’t get my face out of my pillow for my run. It was not a great night of sleep and I kept hitting the snooze. Unfortunately, by the time I got going the rain was seriously threatening, and by the first half mile, the skies opened up. Soaked, but run’s done 🙂

If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that I’m doing a little happy dance this morning because hockey season is finally ending today! (cue the choir) The final game of the tournament is at 1:30 and then I’m free from the ice rink until August!

If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that despite calendar madness, I mentioned last month, that I have stuck to my goal of catching up with a friend every week this past month for lunch/dinner/something. It’s been a lot of fun and I’m hoping for a repeat in April.

If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that I’m going for CPR training tomorrow. I need a refresher before volunteering at the Boston Marathon – I still can’t believe I’ll be at the finish line!

So what would you tell me over coffee?  



  1. And you just reminded me I need to update my CPR cert thanks 🙂 Great having you join for coffee today I slept in too!

  2. i love your goal of spending time with friends. I am trying to figure that out myself. I guess your schedule is filling up with lacrosse now?

    • It’s been great to slow down from the rush-rush-rush to catch up with friends – it’s gone a long way to helping me stayed balanced.

  4. Great job on catching up with your friends! It really can be hard to carve out that time when life is so hectic, but it is really special.

    Have a great time on your CPR course! One of the bloggers I follow here in the UK (annatheapple.com) is running Boston and I have really enjoyed following her training, and can’t wait to hear how the race itself goes.

  5. How cool you will be at the finish line of the Boston Marathon! I took CPR as part of my coaching certification and it was NO JOKE. Congrats from being free from the ice rink for so long! You’re not going to know what to do with yourself. LOL.

    • My hockey time will soon become lacrosse time LOL! But I’ll take it – I love the sport and at least you get to hang outside in the sunshine 🙂

  6. That’s really cool that you’ll be a volunteer at Boston! I get CPR training through work but have never had to use it, thank goodness! Hockey definitely seemed to take up a lot of time, so I bet you’re thrilled to have a little more freedom! 🙂

  7. Michelle, I am late to coffee because I spent the day working in the yard. You are just awesome, that is about all I can say. So excited for you to be working the Boston this year and volunteering. Super Cool of you.

    You just reminded me, I think my CPR certification expired a month or so ago, I need to take care of that:)
    So fun getting together with friends each week! Gotta love great times with great friends!!!
