Coffee Date Friday: Snowy Valentine Edition

Hey y'all! Welcome to coffee date Friday (via link up with Rags to Stitches), where we share imaginary coffee and pretend we are sitting across from each other, in our favorite cafe, sharing great conversation between good friends. 

If we were to meet for our favorite caffeinated delight this morning, I would share the following about me: 

...That brrrr!!!! I know, I know. Weather talk isn't usually a conversation between good friends. But we got some SERIOUS snow in my neck of the Southern woods this week, as in 7 inches. I have never seen anything like it down South! Thank GOODNESS my hub's week-long work trip to Atlanta was cancelled at the last minute Monday night. It would have been a tough week for him to be gone again. We were so happy to have him home with us all week and we definitely snuck in lots of snow playing, snowcream eating, hot chocolate drinking, and blanket snuggling. Now, we are officially D.O.N.E. with these weather shenanigans and ready for Spring.

...That, you should immediately stop what you're doing and go to the grocery store. Make your way to the cookie aisle. Hunt down the Oreo section. Locate the brand new Cookie Dough Oreos. Put them in your cart, but not before sneaking one out of the package and subsequently drooling as it hits your mouth. You're welcome. 

...That this post could have also been called the Cancellation Edition. As in, due to the aforementioned weather, lots of fun plans for this week were cancelled, including a fun Valentine playdate with our weekly play group, a Momma date with one my sweet Fort Mill Momma friends, and Banks' school Valentine party. Looks like the Valentine's we made for Banks' buddies will have to wait until next week since school holidays were already planned for this Friday and next Monday. Oh well. It's always a good day to spread the love, right? ;) 

...That I am headed out for a little antique shopping tomorrow, assuming the roads have thawed enough for me to drive, to hopefully pick up some vintage, decorative pieces for the nursery. I am looking forward to a little quiet Momma time after being cooped up inside all week. 

...That, after my little solo shopping retreat, I'll be heading home to pack our things because we're headed to Georgia for a few days! We are off to visit my sister, brother-in-law, and niece in their new home in their new neighborhood in their new town in their new state, and I can't wait! I'm looking forward to spending some one-on-one time with my precious niece, too, along with my duo, while her momma takes care of some appointments. It should make for a fun and exhausting-in-the-best-possible-way week! Yippee!! 

...That of course, today is the day o' love, and I want to make sure you know how grateful I am for your friendship (and readership!). My life is more meaningful with you in it, and I am thankful you come back here each week to wind down and catch up. So, I would need to say, Happy Valentine's Day to you! My hub and I will be doing an in-house date night this evening, and assuming we can get out and to a grocery store, will be cooking up something yummy to enjoy together, while he sips wine and I sip water, and we take in a movie from the comfort of our couch after putting our babies to bed. I can't wait!

And then, I would ask about YOUR Valentine plans, about what you did to pass the time during this crazy weather week, and about what else has happened in your life since we last got together. 

I would end with a big hug, a Happy Valentine's Day, and a see ya real soon!
