Coffee Date Friday + More!

We made it! Another week down in the books - Hallelujah! So Coffee Date today is coming atcha via text. I'm getting some serious housework done so yeahhhh you don't want to view this ball of sweat. You are welcome! Let's chat shall we? How was your week, how was your Valentine's Day? ohhhhlala! Let's kick it off right there... Sunday was a gorgeous kicking weather day in California, one you wanted to be outside for. So Bryan carried me away in his new boy toy to climb some serious hills... ya know - had to see if the 4X4 really worked. Boys. And then we hit some Taco Shop, because that wins over steak and potatoes any day of the week for me!!

Fast Forward to Tuesday... (Monday was just more soaking up the goodness the sunshine had to offer and pool time..I won't bore you with those details)

Tuesday..(some of/missed the rest of the team!!) Pollinate Media is on a Pontoon Boat .. What What! You guys, these girls are not only gaga-gorgeous, sweet and talented... but such a blast, and I get the honor of not only doing LIFE with them.. but work with them daily. Staaaaapppp it(said in my Andy voice from the bachelorette) Enough of the gushing love for them...cause I really could go on a lllllll day long. I'm on a BOAT!!


Now that I had a moment this Friday morning to enjoy these awesome memories of this week..and share them all with you over a cup of coffee- it's back to the Friday clean grind I go. BOO.

Hey, it can't always be pontoon boat evenings 24/7. gosh how nice would that be?

Share below how your week went - I always love hearing from you - and don't forget to check out all the Coffee Date link up with coffee loving gals..heyyyy over at Alissa's Casa! Until next week - Cheers!


Coffee Date Friday: Sunny 88 and Planner Talk

Hello! And I am back with yet another round of babbling talk! But this week we are chatting about keeping yourself organized - and how do you do it? For reals, I am all ears and want to know if you are a write it, see it, do it - or a phone gal and all hip with that ical.
Me? Write it - cross that crap off! Even if I already did the to-do, as it wasn't yet on the actual list.. I write it and cross it.. No one knows it wasn't there to begin with. So do it. Clean that bathroom, then write it on your to-do and then cross it off. I promise it does amazing things to your confidence.. instant booster. Talking about boosters.. you all are my boost. Thank you for the sweet words, welcome back Jen I got! It was so nice hearing from you and I am exited and hoping I can keep up this Coffee date to stay connected with you all. I truly did miss you! OK - keeping it short, because: It's gaaagaaagorgeous outside, I need to soak in it.
PS. Fill your days with people you love. xo!


Coffee Date - what what!!

Heeellllloooo, it's me. You guys - it has been WAYYYYY too long since I've been here. I didn't know my blogger password - 5 hours later I figured it out, 2 hours later I figured out how to create a blog post. Oh, my gosh Jen- what in the heck?! Why the absence? You guys, I have no excuse, really I don't..call it poor time management and excuses I guess. But you know what? I MISSED YOU! I did think about this little space of mine and really do enjoy talking to you! My coffee loving girls Alissa and Skye have made this Coffee Date(or clearly it's now Wine Time.. hey the upload on the video took forever!!!)look so fun...and I dragged my feet last week, made another lame excuse. BUT dang it- I've gotta get my crap together-- And I do LOVE coffee, videos and chatting it up.. so I figured what the hell. Let's give this a go-go. Plus I did my hair today...sooo.. mic drop. done.
Coffee Video will happen. Today. And guess what, it did.
Don't mind the fact that I said so, and umm about a billion times. Not sure what that is about - but just enjoy my face talking to yours.. mmmkay. Cause I don't know if it will happen again. HA! Kidding! I'm planning these coffee dates into my planner now, fo reals. Cheers!


My Mom

It's not everyday I get all gushy and introduce you to someone who means the world to me, my Mom. 

Moms are a pretty big deal. When you were little they picked the lice out of your hair, cleaned your toothpaste out of the bathroom sink and made you breakfast, lunch, after school snacks and dinner! They encouraged you to do your best and were always there if you needed an ear or just a hug. Moms are marvelous super power incredible beings! 

Disclaimer: I am a spoiled lucky girl. My Super Power Mom lives 5 minutes from me. 

This Mother's Day I wanted to find a way to show my mom how much I love her and how thankful I am of our friendship. I couldn't find a better way then to show up with some simply irresistible oh-so-dang-yummy Shari's Berries and enjoy them with her over some laughs.

While all the boys were at school, I snuck over to my sweet Mom's House, and surprised her with a yummy treat and visit. 

At first my Mom didn't want to share. I couldn't blame her... just look at those babies!

Then I convinced her to "bring them over here, let's catch up on life over on the couch mom... and hey, bring that plate of berries with ya" - Sold. Hook, line, sinker (she likes to chat) We then got our laughs and berry grubbing on. Oh was it ON! These strawberries you guys are so so good. Sweet with the perfect combo of chocolate coated.. I felt all fancy eating them! They made for the prefect treat to share with my Mom!

After we grubbed and figured out who was taking Derek to his soccer game tomorrow as Bryan and I are both busy with the other 2 kids of ours... again- spoiled girl, right? I just sat there for a minute thinking how lucky and blessed I was to share this moment with my Mom. My Mom is a wonderful example and someone I strive to be daily. 

 Happy Mother's Day Mom, I love you!

I want to thank Shari's Berries for sending us these amazing strawberries that I was able to share with my Mom. Of course all opinions are my own, but I'm telling you, these babies will make that special person in your life smile from ear to ear. Wishing you all a very Happy Mother's Day!
