Happy May! Here we are, five months into 2019! I’m ready, with my cup, to join in the Ultimate Coffee Date with h Coco and Deborah ! Join them in their linkup!
Over coffee, I would let you know that I am pretty dedicated to my coffee order. If I’m at Dunkin (and I’m always at Dunkin), it’s a medium Iced Coffee, with cream and one sugar. Which I add myself, because even though the staff at my Dunkin is incredible, I like to have that little bit of control. If I’m at Starbucks, it’s a tall Iced Coffee with raspberry syrup and cream. When it’s cold, maybe I’ll get a peppermint mocha, but it’s rare.
Over coffee, I would tell you that little man turned 11 this week. The last half of ten has been hard and I have been struggled quite a bit at the whole mom thing. However, the last two weeks have been a bit of a turning point and things seem like they are settling down a bit. I love him so much and
Over coffee, I would tell you I’ve had an emotional week. That birthday, saying goodbye to leadership roles in Cub Scouts and PTA, and the ends of so many different chapters. It doesn’t help that little man is about to be promoted from elementary to middle school. So many things all at once, and they are all wonderful milestones, but it’s also so bittersweet.
Over coffee, I would let you know that I’m taking a “boutique fitness” class. Generally, I wouldn’t – I find them too expensive and a little intense as far as commitment, but 9Round is something that’s fitting into my life really well. I’m also super proud of Mr PugRunner for trying it and sticking with it.
So how about you? What would you share over coffee?

All those milestones are bittersweet, for sure. For so many years, our three kids were all at different schools. It was a constant shuttle-in-motion thing for me. Then when the second one entered MS, and he and the older sister were in the SAME building, it was really weird…”freeing” but also a strange shift to reality. Then, I blinked my eyes and our youngest daughter was entering HS…and we were down to the ONE remaining building…..
Gah!!! I don’t know if middle school is going to be easier or harder. I have such anxiety over it an dI’m so hopeful it’s going to be great.

The milestones are amazing and so hard at the same time. I think I must have cried a dozen times this weekend. It’s hard to let go but you know you have to. Happy bday to your little guy-he is not so little anymore! Thanks for linking up for coffee
Aw! Sending so many hugs to you!
He’s not so little, and probably hasn’t been in some time. We went shopping today with his birthday money. He wanted new clothes. What is even happening?
Happy Birthday to your son! And to you and your hubby for keeping up with that fitness class. Do you get to box each other? 😉
One thing I hate about DD is that they want to add the cream. I like my coffee with just a splash and hate when it’s too milky. #firstwolrdproblems
Thank you! We don’t get to box each other. I think that would be dangerous LOL!
I prefer when they add the cream. They never leave me enough room when I have to do my own and it gets all messy. Isn’t it funny how we all have such different preferences over one simple drink?
ooh, I haven’t seen raspberry syrup here. That could be interesting. Dunkin I’m “larged iced, caramel mocha swirl black” and Sbux I’m peppermint mocha in winter and white mocha at other times. I don’t tend to do Sbux when it’s warm though as it’s more a warm me up when it’s cold drink – oddly I’ll do Dunkin iced year round. This week a Sbux near a meeting I was going to was out of mocha !! so I had a vanilla bean something. Tasted like liquid ice cream. It wasn’t terrible but if I’m wasting the calories, I want it to involve ch ocolate

My Dunkin is super accommodating about adding or not adding things. That’s why I love them, so!
I also prefer Sbux for cold weather. It’s better for that!

Ah so many milestones! Middle school is a big step. Happy birthday to your son!
I love Dunkin’s iced coffee – by the way, we drink it the same way!
Huge step. So huge. He’s so ready and if he is, then I am.
Yay for Dunkin!
