Hi! Thanks for coming over for a coffee break. I think I'll have a cup of cinnamon cookie tea with frothed milk. What would you like? Before you can even sit down, I have to share that my baby boy turns 7 today. I might even have to whip out pictures so you can see him 7 years ago, and now. Its so hard to believe how fast he's growing up! Tonight, he has specifically asked for mommy's macaroni and cheese for dinner. Then we are heading over to Cheesecake Factory for birthday dessert!
I'd also have to tell you that I'm emotionally spent right now. Nothing major is going on, just a lot of little things and I'm exhausted. I feel like I have a lot of things that need to be done NOW, and I feel like I'm drowning in it all. Part of it could be the rain, part of it could be the fact that I'm going on week #2 that one of my BFFs has been in Europe for a week and there's still a week to go. This is my friend who I text when I'm feeling overwhelmed, frustrated or just need to vent. I know I can make it another week, its just tough not having her around! As for the things I need to get done, I'm taking it one day at time and one task at a time. It will all get done, or if it doesn't, the world will not end!
I'm hoping to get some baking in this week so I can decompress and spend a little time relaxing. I got some cinnamon chips and some cappuccino chips from King Arthur Flour a week and a half ago and I want to get creative and make some yummy treats for my family.
As we continue to to sip our tea, I'll ask how your week is going. Is there anything weighing on you right now? Do you have a friend who keeps you on track on those harder days? Are you planning to do any baking this week?
For another cup, head to Lucky13 or Grey Umbrella. Have a great week, let's make a date for next week!
