Good morning lovelies!

I hope that everyone had a great holiday weekend. It’s so nice to have an extra day off work now and then, and for me, it came at just the right time after last week’s craziness.

If we were really meeting for coffee this morning, I would tell you that the Mister and I had plans to go to Asheville yesterday for a daytrip. Unfortunately it was supposed to rain the entire day, so we decided to postpone the trip for another weekend.

Instead, we would up going to Charlotte do some shopping. The Mister needed to take his computer by the Apple store, and my anniversary gift has been long overdue, pending a trip to a Fossil store. Now the Mister has a new battery in his laptop, and I have a shiny new boyfriend watch.

We also went to IKEA, and I have to be honest and say that I don’t get the appeal. The store was incredibly crowded, and most of the furniture/home wares just weren’t my style.

If we were really meeting for coffee, I would tell you that we also pulled our bikes out of the shed to take a ride down to the Mister’s favorite coffee shop, Drip Coffee. We share a French press of the house blend and an egg sandwich with fontina cheese and roast red peppers. Yum!

If we were really meeting for coffee this morning, I’d have to say that Saturday’s game had me biting my nails. East Carolina should not have bee allowed to lead 17-0 in the first half. I’m so thankful that we pulled it together for a win, but we cannot play that way against Georgia on Saturday. It will not go well.


Also, I did okay for the first week of the football pick’ems. I got 8 of 10 games. The only two I missed were Colorado v. Hawaii and South Florida v. Notre Dame. And South Florida winning was a surprise upset anyway. I do have to let you know though, that my brother always helps me with my picks….so he did pretty well this week too.

If we were really meeting for coffee this morning, I’d tell you that it’s going to be awfully hard to get anything done this week, knowing that our Ladies Adventure Weekend is coming up. It’s always hard to focus when something exciting is on the horizon.

Oh, and pumpkin spice lattes start today at Starbucks! Yay! So I think I’ll end our virtual coffee meet-up on that note and go for real coffee at the ‘Bucks. Have a fabulous week!
