August Coffee Date- I See Football!

Good morning!  I have a huge cup of decaf coffee with sugar-free creamer and a big spoon of coconut oil!  Did you check out my friends at Skinny Coconut OIl?  Check out my post if you missed it!  So, it is nice to spend a Saturday morning with you!  No long run this morning.  My BRF has a back to school fair to do at the hospital so we shall run tomorrow.  So grab a mug and let’s catch up!

Hugs to hostesses:  Coco, Deborah and Lynda

Over coffee I would tell you:

I have no school kids so the back to school shopping and craziness does not mean much to me now.  I will tell you that Sunday is the first preseason Packer game!  What???  Football???  OMG- fall is coming!!!!  Football, snacks, lots of snacks, fun cocktails, and long runs with cooler temps and less humidity!  It is like the light at the end of the tunnel!  Go Packers!

Running wise I am running the Level Up Runs 10K in the morning.  I am excited to run this one because it benefits such a great cause!  Each registration will benefit  A toy, blanket or dog bowl will be donated for a dog in need.  You can still register!  SAVE10 will give you 10% off registration.

I have my last Watermelon run in my 4 race summer series.  If you missed it, I beat my goal of a sub 30 5K time in race #3.  28:41!  I mean, I blew it out of the water!  So I am a little nervous for race #4.  It will be the hottest, will I, can I beat that earlier time?  We sill see in 2 weeks!

Travel wise we have a long weekend planned in  St. Augustine to celebrate the hubby’s birthday.  This is one of our favorite destinations to run away to and we have a reservation at the St. Francis Inn.  I am also working on the details for our week vacation to Cape Cod.  The more I study, the more I want to see!  Can’t wait!

Shopping wise I racked up at Old Navy!  First I log into my Ebates account.  Why Ebates?  I earn rebates for shopping at places I already love to shop in!  Check here if you want to check it out, it is a FREE program!  So, moving on, I got 6 new tanks, delivered for less than $50.00.  You know you love a deal and they are running some good ones!  Earn your big fat rebate check from Ebates, it is super easy!

So I have done enough lip flapping, tell me what you are up to.  Watching the Olympics? Pre-season football?  Do tell!   #coffeedatetutus_mb-01

  1. Your coffee cup cracked me up! When I was in high school there was a very weird teacher–her name was Mrs Lescher but we used to call her Mrs Lusher– and we were certain there was vodka in her coffee cup, not water…

    You know we will be watching the Packers here!

      Oh, I know you will be watching! Go Packers! The hubby will be in Wisconsin next weekend for nationals (I think) for show skiing. 🙂 Enjoy the weekend!

  2. Stepmom says:

    And who are the Packers playing on Sunday but the COLTS from your home state. Go Blue! <3

  3. I must have missed the post where you announced your new 5k PR. That is Awesome! All those hot runs paid off!

    Are you originally from Wisconsin? Just wondering where the love of the Packers comes from?

    • MB says:

      Thank you! I married a “cheesehead” 🙂 so we have been converted to Packers fans. Have a great weekend!

  4. I love that tank I was just perusing around etsy last night for some cute ones. My boys are psyched for football but we are eagles fans around here. Thanks for joining us for coffee today!

    Sooo excited for football! I’ll be cheering for my Colts (but I will admit I was drinking my coffee out of a Green Bay Packers mug this morning! yikes! I got the mug when we visited Lambeau on vacation in June.) Speaking of coffee, how is the coconut oil in coffee? I just haven’t done that yet. Maybe I should try? And Ebates!!! Best. Thing. Ever! lol! I’ve been using it forever!

  10. Our next long weekend (we hope) is the Cape. We’ll have Lola with us though (but not Bandit).

    Have you ever been to the Cape before?

    Not having kids, all that back to school stuff always eludes me.

  11. I’m honestly not all that into the Olympics. I don’t have a TV and am pretty much already out of free time so I guess that’s okay! We are currently shopping for another football team this season. My boyfriend has decided it’s time to finally give up on the Bills. Usually football season is his favorite time of year!

  12. I can’t believe it’s almost football season…my boyfriend is crazy about college football so it’s going to be crazy in a few weeks! I look forward to seeing how you do in your next Watermelon race, was so cool to see that you got such a huge PR!

    I’ve been to St Augustine and it is a beautiful little city. Our inlaws take us when we visit them in Jacksonville. It’s not but about 25-30 minsfrom their house. I can’t wait to see pictures an what you do there.

  14. OMG football already ? Living in France, I forget about it !
    Haven’t watched too much of the Olympics as we were traveling, but now that I am home, I have been trying to. So bummed I missed the gymnastics.
    You will love Cape Cod !
