coffee date Friday

I thought I'd join Alissa's Coffee Date Friday this afternoon, just for fun! I don't often do linkups, but always enjoy them!

Tim Hortons. My favorite coffee place, and I wish the Canadian chain would open a location here in Washington, DC! I'd be such a happy girl! 

If we were having coffee together today, I'd possibly tell you how exhausted I am, and how much I need this cup of coffee! It's been a very busy week at work, with board meetings for two of the days, and I need a relaxing weekend.

This weekend though, will be very nice - Steve and I are traveling home to NH to visit my family! Today is Steve's birthday as well as my brother's birthday, and my family is also celebrating my brother's recent college graduation! So, lots of happy all around. We will celebrate Steve's birthday here in DC with friends next week, so the traditional birthday week will continue on! I'm taking him for dinner tonight. 

Labor Day weekend, we were in Iowa for a wedding, and we stopped at Steve's favorite hometown ice cream shop, which was a treat, as always! I had red velvet ice cream. Red velvet anything makes my heart happy, so I was pleased! 

I just ordered a bit of fabric from one of my favorite online shops. I found some fabric that I can use for a Christmas gift for my mother! I want to make a few more things this year than I did last, so I need to start early! I'm a slow quilter   :)    Also, I need to get going on some baby quilts I'm working on. Why can't I be a stay-at-home quilter?!?! 

Also! Scarlet Threads is introducing the new Chin Collection, and it's a beauty. We still have gorgeous aprons, including my favorite, Priscilla (those ruffles!), and they won't last long. 

Remember, if you need an apron or anything else from the Scarlet Threads collection, use the code lex25 for a discount on your pruchase! I feel so honored to be working with Carrie, Eileen, Hannah and the rest of the girls in this amazing organization. Empowering people through economic development is something that I feel so strongly about, and I love seeing the changes that these women are creating in their lives.

Also! I need to share a few new photos of my World Vision babies soon! They're getting so big, and I just love when they send progress reports and new pictures. 

In other sweet news (hehe!), I tried a cannoli cupcake from Crumbs last week and it was life-changing. I know I can;t even these as often as I wish I could, but boy-oy-boy....

Trust me, it's as amazing as it looks!
