Follow Friday – Just Add Coffee

Years ago, there was a group of us who used to get for coffee every week.  We were all stay at home mom’s (well, I was a stay at home preggo at that point… the benefits of a cruddy pregnancy and not being able to work), and so Leigh-Anne, Nic, and I would all invade Crystal’s house, put our feet up, gossip, share, commiserate, and relax.

One-by-one, everyone gradually went back to work.  Except me – I’m still the lazy bum.

We still try to get together for the occasional lunch or an evening of cardmaking, but schedules make it hard.

I’ve really been missing that, the longer I stay a home.

So about a month ago, Crystal decided to resurrect the coffee time.   It’s a new group of ladies; people we’ve met on Twitter.  But every other Saturday, we troupe over to a nice coffee shop in the south of Calgary and chill.

These fabulous ladies;

  • Crystal, our fearless organizer, supplier of Avon brochures (which is why we call our coffee dates ‘#brochuresniffing’….don’t judge), bringing of pretty jewelry to play with, and fellow coffee snob.  Fun fact:  for some reason we haven’t figured out, Vista insists on calling her oldest daughter ‘Princess’.
  • Jackie - she’s one of those people who walk in to a room and you can’t help but smile at.  Last week she showed up with the CUTEST crocheted cap that she had made for Vista.  So sweet.

  • At the last coffee day, Danielle braved the waters and came out to join us.  This woman is what it is to be classy.  I want to be her if I ever grow up.  Oh, and I may have been totally coveting the scarf she was wearing.  If I could have figured out a way to get it off her, I probably would have… but don’t tell her that, mmmkai?

Now it’s your turn. Create your own coffee tweetup. It’s a great way to get out for a few hours and make some fab new friends. Then you’ll have some great picks for your own Follow Friday post, too.
