Welcome to the November Ultimate Coffee Date Link Up! Since both Deborah and I are celebrating birthdays later this month, I am dubbing this the Birthday Edition. That also gives us
an excuse a good reason to have cake with our coffee, so pour yourself a cup, pull up a chair, and let us know what’s going on your life.
We’d love for you to use our new badge in your coffee date posts–

Ultimate Coffee Date
If we were having coffee, I would ask what your favorite type of cake is. While I generally love chocolate, my favorite cake is lemon pound cake. Last year my son made me the most amazing one for my birthday–there was lemon zest in the batter, a lemon glaze, and lemon frosting!
Oh so good!
If we were having coffee, I would ask if any family members share your birthday month. My daughter’s birthday is a few days after mine, so for many years my birthday celebration took a back seat to hers. At least I never had to go to Chuckee Cheese on my birthday.
Now sharing my day with her is a real treat!
If we were having coffee, I would ask if you try to take the day off on your birthday. I usually don’t, but since I have a BIG one this year I am trying to keep my work calendar clear in case I want to treat myself to a spa day.
Coco’s 4th Birthday
If we were having coffee, I would ask if you enjoy surprise parties. My husband pulled off a huge surprise party when I turned 30–I had absolutely no idea anything was in the works. I still don’t know how he managed it—or how he got our kids to stay mum.
