Ultimate Coffee Date #2

Goooood morning!

And Happy Saturday. :)

This is the first Saturday in a long time in which I’ve been able to a) sleep in and b) not have to get up and rush off to something (other than two weeks ago when we were up at the cabin!).

It feels great. And also gives me time to write this post and link up with Nikki, Jill, and Lynda for their Ultimate Coffee Date link up!

I posted my first Ultimate Coffee Date awhile back (you can read that post here), and it’s time I joined in on the fun again!

The Ultimate Coffee Date is a fun way to share what’s going on in life, and connect with other bloggers. If you’re a blogger interested in linking up as well, check out this how to guide. Check out Nikki’s other co-hosts Jill Conyers and fitnessmomwinecountry too!

So what’s on my mind this morning?

If we were having coffee, I would tell you…

how excited I am to be all moved in to our new house! We closed on Monday, and were officially out of our apartment on Thursday. Just have to put everything away (and buy a few things!). It’s been a long week, and now, it’s time to put our feet up and enjoy! :)

If we were having coffee, I would tell you… 

that I love discovering new neighborhoods. A friend of ours stopped by the other day to see the house, and we headed out to this local cafe I heard was good. We are within walking distance to downtown White Bear Lake, and I love that we have lots of new shops and restaurants to try out. I had this chicken salad with strawberries, slivered almonds, blue cheese, shaved fennel, and a lavender balsamic dressing. Healthy and delicious!

If we were having coffee, I would tell you…

that I just love the Farmer’s Market. Another great thing about where we live is that there is a Farmers Market on Friday mornings right in downtown (that I was able to walk to!). I picked up some kale, spinach, fingerling potatoes, green beans, green bell peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, corn, local string cheese, and a bouquet of beautiful flowers for under $40. You seriously cannot beat that!

If we were having coffee, I would tell you…

that I found a new favorite yogurt. Dreaming Cow Strawberry Pomegranate Grass-fed yogurt. Not as thick and creamy as Greek (or with as much protein), but I love that it only uses fruit juice to sweeten and is all-natural. And it’s got a great creamy texture without the sourness of other yogurts.

And that my friends, is a wrap!

Any tips for this new homeowner? Favorite yogurts I should know about? Anything else you’re loving about the summertime?

Have a great Saturday! :)
