Coffee Date – Donuts, Conferences and To-Do Lists

donut day How are you today? What’s new? What was the best part of your week so far?

I’m sure I don’t have to tell you, but it’s Friday! Would you care to join me for a morning (or afternoon) beverage?

I’m starting this morning with Kahlua coffee and my favorite kind of donut in honor of National Donut Day.   I’m generally a plain glazed kind of girl unless I have a particular hankering for chocolate. Then I want a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and sprinkles. If it doesn’t have sprinkles, I’ll pass. (Not even kidding.)

How about you? What are you having with your coffee? What’s your favorite donut?

Not to brag, but I got a crap ton of stuff done last night. In all actuality I got my entire To-Do list done that I had planned and then some. The only thing I didn’t get done was a little hand stitching for Sue ‘s bag and scarf, but I couldn’t find my hand stitching needles. What the heck? It’s all good. She understands.

These next few days are going to be insane with a benefit party (I’m bringing cupcakes.), travel and a conference for work, and then gearing up for a house guest next weekend. Oh! And the weekend after that I’m going to Robbie’s for the weekend for tattoos! It’s a good think that July 4th weekend is 4 days for me. I’m going to need it.

Can I tell you that I’m a little nervous for the conference? I used to plan them, I still work them sometimes, but I’ve never been to one as a participant. I’m nervous that my colleagues from other states might not like me, or take me seriously, or or or…I’m not used to being the new girl and although in my heart of hearts I know it’ll be okay, I am always nervous being the new girl at first.

How about you? Are you okay being the new person in the crowd? BMHx0mjCMAALR2M.jpg large

Lastly, in reference to To-Do Lists. I’m stealing this from a dear friend of mine Davison23rd  (Took it right from her twitter. I don’t think she’ll mind.)

Well, part way through my To-Do list she posted this picture last night and it’s a great reminder. I’m the first to tell you that I’m not really what most would think of as “calm” but I try like hell to count my blessings, be kind, and let go. I trust my gut (instead of my heart, it seems to be smarter) and I’m working on the breathing.

How about you?

Don’t forget! Three Questions and a Prize is happening until Thursday!

I spend a lot of time on the pool deck and making treats in my kitchen amongst other things.

    If I make it through today without throwing someone (or myself) out a window, I’ll call it a win.
