Happy February! I feel like January was a rough month personally and politically, and I am ready for things to settle down. Punxsutawney Phil says we are in for another six weeks of winter, and I wouldn’t mind a snow day or two! Since today is the first Saturday of the month, Deborah and I are hosting the Ultimate Coffee Date Link Up, so pour yourself a cup, pull up a chair, and let’s catch up!

If We Were Having Coffee …
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that we are finally moving ahead with our kitchen renovation plans! We still have to make our final materials selections next week but this is happening!
You can’t tell from the drawing, but this will involve taking down a wall between our kitchen and the dining room (on the left of the drawing) and re-doing the ceiling to minimize the drop-downs that conceal duct work and pipes. While I’m excited for the finished product, I’m not looking forward to 6-8 weeks without a kitchen, but at least we have a spare fridge and utility sink in our our basement, and I can take over my husband’s workbenches with the microwave, crockpot and rice cooker. 🙂
If we were having coffee, I’d ask if you have any opinion on Bosch versus Kitchen Aid appliances–if you do, please let me know in the comments or by email!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I just got back from a grueling business trip, working 8 am to 11 pm or later. It was great to come home to the January Must Have Box, which I was sent to review via my collaboration with PopSugar, since it is filled with pampering items.
I think my favorites are the Manduka Yoga Towel, Sourcebooks Happy Notes, and Dean & Deluca Peppermint Tea–yes, this coffee lover enjoys tea from time to time. If you want to receive a monthly box filled with full-sized products valued at over $100, you can use coupon code SHOP5 for $5 off your first order here.
If we were having coffee, I’d ask if you are planning to watch the Superbowl and who you are rooting for. My son usually roots for the Patriots, but I like to cheer on the underdog.
If we were having coffee, I’d have to excuse myself since I have to start packing up my kitchen. I’d remind you to visit other blogs in the link up, including Confessions Of A Mother Runner where you can chat with my co-host Deborah.
