Morning Coffee Date

After a near-miss with a winter storm earlier this week, I'm enjoying the sunny spring morning today. I can't help but thinking - is there any better way to start a day than looking out at the sunshine through the steam of a coffee cup? I think not.

Yummy coffee in my favorite mug! The  way the suns pills across my lawn is gorgeous, and one of my favorite things about our lot

I've never been on a virtual coffee date before, but I'm trying it out today to link up with Rags to Stitches. Coffee and blogging together? So there.

So what does one do at these coffee dates? 

If we were really out for coffee today, I would probably tell you about my busy weekend ahead!
  • Today, I'm going with my mom to pick out paint colors for her brand new house. OH, how I LOVE choosing paint colors! I'm so happy she's letting me pick for her, because her new house is gorgeous, and, well....let's just say, she doesn't have a lot of experience in this arena.
  • I also hope to buy some new sneakers today. It's been FOUR years! I know! Before that pair, it was SEVEN years! I obviously don't buy sneakers very often! Truth be told, I don't use them a lot, so they do last quite a while...but I just rarely feel like putting money into sneakers. I'm eyeing up these, these, and these. We'll see what deals I can find!
  • Tomorrow morning, my Lukey starts swimming lessons! This is something we've been meaning to do for a while now, and it finally worked out. It's only $40 for 6 weeks (not too shabby!), and they meet for a 1/2 hour every Saturday morning. He LOVES swimming in our pool, but I have a feeling it'll be a bit of an adjustment for him at the big public one. I'm excited, though!
  • Sunday is the March for Babies, and while I'm a little nervous about the logistics (like, where can Luke go potty if he needs to go a mile into it?), I'm also excited for it! It's really empowering, standing in that huge, huge crowd of thousands, full of energy and excitement, all walking in the same direction, for the same cause. It's supposed to be 52 degrees and sunny on Sunday, but the walk is early in the morning so I think it'll be a bit chilly. I'm going to layer-bundle the kids up just in case! And my sweet friend is lending us a double stroller, thank goodness for that!
  • I have a sudden influx of books to read. I think I need to start a to-do list for them and just work on checking them off! I started re-reading the Harry Potter series in February for our trip to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter (which was AMAZING!), and got totally behind - getting through book 3 has been holding me up!
  • I got a bunch of fabrics in the mail yesterday (and I've got more on the way, due here on Monday!) and I cannot wait to play around with it. It's all so pretty! I hope to squeeze in some sewing time this weekend (somewhere?), and a bunch next week.
So, what do YOU have going on this weekend? Anything fun?
