Sometimes, all a mom needs is a good cup of coffee and some quality time with some girl friends (okay and maybe a yummy cupcake too ;-)). So when I was selected to host a Coffee Mate Cafe Party, you know I was on board. Because you know mama LOVES her Coffee Mate. My friend Celia was also selected, so we decided to co-host our Coffee-Mate Cafe Party together. We invited some of our fave girlfriends, threw the kids downstairs, and locked the door behind them. Okay, fine, I kid, I kid. I didn't lock the door behind them I may have gently shut it, but fortunately they were COMPLETELY content to hang down stairs in the kid cave and play Super Mario the whole time, while we ladies relaxed upstairs.
Because we have had a rough couple of months, I decided to lighten up the mood and require embarrassing or funny stories ONLY...because we needed a good laugh over a great cup of coffee. The great cup of coffee was already covered thanks to Coffee Mate and the stories did not disappoint.
Celia and I had a smorgasbord of gluten-free goodies (Coffee Mate is gluten free too - woot) for our friends to nosh on while we chit-chatted, laughed, cried and reminisced. A great afternoon and a great group of girlfriends.
Thanks Coffee Mate for the opportunity to host a fun-filled, yummy afternoon with my girls!
