Rare Coffee Date!

Hi Coffee Daters!

I hope you enjoyed our multiple posts today on our social media! We thought it would be fun to show you our actual extended coffee date! Trina and I only have the opportunity to see each other a few times a year, since we live in different cities, hours apart. We truly cherish these few days a year we get to spend together. We have done this so many times now, that we have sort of a routine to maximize our time together. 

First, we meet at our usual spot. Trina drops her car off and I am chauffeur for the day! We go to a Starbucks and get some coffee,'s Moms' Coffee Date! (Sorry! I couldn't resist!) Next, we take our coffees and head to the nearest Target to browse WITHOUT kids! We talk about our kids and trade tips about what we have seen there that has been helpful lately! Today, I got a lesson in being a Dance Mom! Trina's girls are into dance. I learned that the leotards at Target are good quality, but at a much lower cost than boutique leotards. It also sounds like a huge time commitment and very expensive. Hats off to all of you dance moms out there!

Then, we head over to Ulta. Because...well, why not? We usually have Brow Bar appointments. Today, we did not. We had an abbreviated day today for various reasons, so we really wanted to maximize our time. But if you have not tried a Brow Bar at your local Ulta, you should! They map out your brows and we are always happy with the results.

Next is lunch! We almost always go to Carrabba's. I mean, who doesn't love Italian?!? We both happen to love the Mezzaluna there. So good. And their bread and oil and spices while you wait? And their Blackberry Sangria? Oh man, my mouth is watering now. And we got to discuss our new logo! We are in the process of tweaking it now, but we can't wait to share it with you! 

Afterwards, we head over to a local outlet mall and the time of year determines which stores we go into. We almost always go to the Loft Outlet. They usually have some cute bargains there.

Finally, we head over to this really cute town square. We get ANOTHER coffee, I know...wild women, we are! And then we go sit on OUR bench. We have been meeting here for years, and almost every single time we sit on our bench, no matter the weather. We drink our coffee, people watch and just talk about life. Those are some great moments.

That's our day in a nutshell! I think everyone needs a Trina in their lives. I certainly hope you have one in your life. She is, and always has been a great friend. I am certainly lucky to have her!!


Great recap of our day, Sara!  I wanted to interject that everyone needs a Sara in their life as well.  It is so important to have a friend that is there for you always-no matter how much time has passed since the last time you have seen them.  Our friendship has definitely grown since we have become moms.  It is great to have someone to talk to about all of the ups and downs of motherhood!
