Welcome to the December edition of the Ultimate Coffee Date Link Up, where we imagine that we are getting together for coffee or tea (or egg nog?) and share what’s going on in our lives. It’s a chance to get to know each other better and support each other in all our endeavors. Since it’s no fun to have coffee alone, make sure you leave comments on other blogs in the link up, and don’t forget to visit my co-host Deborah at Confessions Of A Mother Runner.
We’d love for you to use our badge in your coffee date posts–

If you are new to link ups, check out these tips for making the most of them.
If we were having coffee, I would apologize for not having much time to chat. Today is my annual Christmas Cookie Bake-A-Thon day, so I will be spending the day baking delicious cookies. There will be five of us, and we each make two types of cookies plus decorate cut-outs, so I will come home with a great selection of cookies for giving and eating.
I’ll be making my ginger spice cookies
and my eggnog spritz cookies.
If we were having coffee, I would whine about having to work next weekend. All weekend. Out of a hotel. In New Jersey. Do you feel sorry for me yet? As much as I love my job, I don’t love when it takes over my weekends. It doesn’t happen very often, but when it does, it sucks.
If we were having coffee, I would ask if you traveled over Thanksgiving weekend, or have any travel plans for December? We aren’t going anywhere, but my daughter will be coming home for Christmas. We visited her a few weeks ago, but it will be nice to have her home again for a few days.
Speaking of which, do you remember me telling you last month that I have been enjoying having my son home but know it won’t last for long? Well, he’s going to be moving out even sooner than I expected, to start a graduate school program in January. While I’m very proud and excited for him, I am not hiding the fact that I will miss him! It’s like going through that empty nest transition all over again.
If we were having coffee, I’d ask if you scored any great Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals, and if your “self” versus “others” spending ratio was as skewed as mine. Oops! 😉
