Coffee Date – No April Foolin’

Nothing better then a chance to slow down and catch up over a mug of coffee (or tea if you prefer). So I’m joining Coco and Deborah for the monthly Coffee Date. Settle in, grab a comfy chair, and let’s chat a little, shall we?

If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that I’m just not enjoying Mother Nature’s little weather joke! After an unusually “warm” February, March proved to be colder than any month this winter – what’s up with that?!?

If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that believe it or not hockey is still alive in my house! You may remember the last time we got together for coffee I was looking forward to wrapping up the hockey season. Well, who knew that our team would start playing inspired hockey in the playoffs! We finally head to the championship game late this afternoon.

If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that I’m so excited to volunteering at the Boston Marathon again! I’ll be returning to the finish line area, which was a blast last year. Can. not. wait!

If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that we’re getting a puppy! After losing our beloved German Shepherd last June, it didn’t take long for our family to decide we wanted to get another dog. We knew we wanted another Shepherd but decided to get a sable this time.

So what would you tell me over coffee?



  1. I can only imagine how cool it is to volunteer at the Boston finish! How fun! We are deep in lacrosse season here and I’ve been freezing my butt off on those bleachers.

  4. Have so much fun volunteering in Boston! You’ve got the best spot! Your new pup is adorable. Our Bichon turns 17 this month and my youngest daughter is already hedging to get something “younger”. Ugh. Yay for the hockey team! I know it’s a grind but still…

    • This will be my 2nd year in the finish area – just so cool to be there! Wow 17 yrs old that’s great! We’ve so missed having a dog around the house.

  5. Oh, yay on the puppy! And on the hockey – both making the championships and it being almost over. It must be so cool to volunteer at Boston!

    Thanks for joining us for coffee!

  6. Congrats on the addition to the family! Puppies are so much fun but so much work! But so worth it.

    I have to believe volunteering at Boston is so amazing!

  7. It must be so cool to volunteer at the finish line of the B.O.S.T.O.N marathon!!! I hope to at least be there in person one time to volunteer or cheer on people.

  8. Cutest puppy ever!

    I am SO ready for winter to be over. This no-pattern weather (cold today, 80 tomorrow, raining and 30 the next day…) is killing my motivation!

  9. Your puppy is adorable- and so fluffy looking! Doing the finish line at Boston will be amazing I am sure- I cannot even imagine how exciting!

  10. Volunteering for Boston would be almost as exciting as running it (in my opinion). Good for you! I’m always excited to hear of runners paying it forward (and giving back?) by volunteering 😉

  11. So cool to volunteer at Boston, and at the finish line! Have a blast! Look forward to reading about it.
    It’s never easy losing a baby, but loving another one is going to be great for both you and the new puppy. Congrats and good luck with your new furry friend!

    Your new puppy is adorable!

  13. Aw Your new puppy is so adorable. I also have one and it’s fun to play with him but sometimes he’s too mischievous. Sounds great to know you to volunteer at the Boston Marathon. Good luck.
