Welcome to the March 2015 edition of the Ultimate Coffee date link up! It is so nice to take time out of our hectic schedules to get to know each other a little better over a virtual cup of coffee or tea, or your beverage of choice!

If we were having coffee, I would have to show off the fun coffee mug that my awesome co-host Deb had made for us!
I know my co-host Lynda is enjoying hers too!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you about the snowy weather at the Reston 10 Miler last weekend. (You can read my recap here). I was happy with my time, but laughed when I figured out that with my pace I’d have to be at least 65 in order to win an age group prize–we’ve got some awesome female runners around here!
If we were having coffee, I would have to explain why I am a bit emotional today. You see, it’s this little guy’s birthday. But he’s turning 21, and it’s his first day of Spring Break, and he’s spending it with friends in New York City, so I won’t even see him.
Now, I don’t remember how I celebrated my 21st birthday–not because it was that awesome, but because it was that long ago!–but I am sure that I didn’t spend it with my parents. Still, as a parent, it is hard not to be a part of such a milestone. (Although I am sure I am better off not knowing exactly how he is celebrating ….).
Speaking of Spring Break, if we were having coffee I would have to ask, “Is it spring yet?” While the Polar Vortex didn’t get as much press this year, our February temperatures were 9 degrees below average, and we had so many days in the teens and twenties. And can you believe we had a snow day on Thursday?!
And, speaking of spring, don’t forget that we “Spring Forward” tonight for Daylight Saving Time. I think we have a few clocks that we still need to change ourselves, but since I use my phone for my alarm I have to count on AT&T and Apple to wake me up on time tomorrow!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I’ve been in a rut of evening snacking, and am trying MealEnders signaling lozenges via a sponsored opportunity through FitApporaoch to break that habit. If you struggle with the same issue, I’d encourage you to check out my review and enter the giveaway.
Are you going anywhere for Spring Break?
