Today I’m joining Coco at Running With Perserverance, Deborah at Confessions Of A Mother Runner, and Lynda at Fitness Mom Wine Country for their monthly Ultimate Coffee Date linkup!  Be sure to stop by their blogs for a cup of coffee and to say hello; and while you’re there, be sure to check out some of the other bloggers who are participating in the linkup.



If we were having coffee…..
I’d tell you that the weather this past week has been about a perfect as it can be!  Our evening have been in the 50’s leaving us with perfect running weather early in the mornings, and or days have been sunny and in the low 70’s.  The trees are finally colorful, and the leaves are crunchy under our feet.  Ahhhh…. fall!

If we were having coffee…..
I’d tell you that this evening I am hosting our MRTT chapter members for our first ever Give Thanks To Our Chapter Leaders party.  Both Amanda and Erin are such a blessing to all who know them, and give so much of themselves to our chapter.  It’s going to be a fun evening of great food, plenty of wine, and lively shenanigans!  Bill has even promised to make and serve his signature Mexican martinis! 

If we were having coffee…..
I’d take a moment to brag and tell you that my son Joseph was selected to represent the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business with two other MBA students at the Ross Investment Competition at the University of Michigan last weekend.  Booth won the competition with Warton finishing second, and Sloan finishing third.  Congrats Joseph, and team Booth!

If we were having coffee…..
I’d tell you that I got a great report from my dermatologist on Monday.  For the past sixteen years I have been seeing my dermatologist two to four times a year for full-body skin cancer checks.  I’ve now gone one year without any new basal cells or melanomas and I couldn’t be happier!

If we were having coffee…..
I’d tell you that my birthday is one week from today.  I love birthdays!

If we were having coffee…..
I’d ask you to have a reflective month of gratitude as we head into the Thanksgiving holiday.  Enjoy every second of your time with your family!
