Last coffee date of 2016

Believe it or not we’ve reached the last coffee date of 2016. So grab a mug of your fave beverage and join in on this fun link-up hosted by Coco and Deborah!

The Ultimate Coffee Date

If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that my new TV guilty pleasure is Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party. Yes that would be Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg. I can’t tell you exactly what it is about this combination, but it does put a smile on my face!


If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that I signed up for the Winter Warrior Challenge – the challenge is to run or walk a mile a day for the month of January. This is the first year the challenge allows for treadmill miles, but only outdoor miles count towards prizes. My goal is to stick to the outdoors. Should be a fun way to add a little extra motivation to start 2017, and all the proceeds go to charity!


If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that I’m not looking forward to trying to wrangle my sons today for a decent picture for my holiday cards. But, I need to get them done and off to Shutterfly as quickly as possible, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they smile and cooperate!

skisIf we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that I’m looking forward to starting to decorate the house today for Christmas. We probably won’t get the tree until next week, but today is all about lights, wreaths, poinsettias, etc. If I’m feeling ambitious I may take on a project I spotted last year and paint a pair of old skis red to put my front porch. This is what I’m going for… wish me luck!

So what would you tell me over coffee?  



  1. One year a friend got me the cookbook Cooking with Coolio. It was hilarious and Martha & Snoop coming together totally reminded me of it.

    Those red ski’s are super cute! Good luck getting your craft on.

  2. I am right there with you, worrying about those Christmas cards- I tried to pick just one picture where the kids were all smiling, eyes open, no red-eye, and the focus was good….I still haven’t got one, but i just need to get them out at this point! As for Martha and Snoop…When I saw the show on, I was so confused..but when I saw Martha, she just makes my skin crawl, though Snoop Dog is quite entertaining imo! Enjoy the season!

  3. That winter challenge sounds like somethng I could actually complete …too bad it’s already 3 days in and I haven’t run any of those days! Maybe next year 🙂 Oh, how I remember those days of trying to get all three of my kids to cooperate for Christmas pictures. Throw a dog in the mix and we were doing good if we got ONE halfway decent picture out the hour long session! Good luck with that! 🙂

  4. Oh my gosh Martha and Snoop have a show together – that just sounds like a riot!

  5. I have never heard of the Race Cancer January streak challenge. Good luck! That will be a great way to kick off 2017!! This is my fourth year doing the RW Streak (through the winter), and am hoping it’s my third year of doing all the runs outside. SO far, so good.

    Hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
