A Coffee Date With You!

Good morning friends!!  How’s your morning going?  I am quite sleepy today after a huge thunderstorm last night (no power for 2 hours) and staying up late to chat with my bestie.  It was well worth it, but I could certainly use an IV of coffee right about now.  

So let’s pretend we are on a coffee date this morning and I’ll fill you in on what’s going on in my world right now.  

I am currently sipping on some black coffee while filling out my planner and making my to-do list for the day.  I love to start my day feeling organized and on top of it.  

I would tell you that I had a really good run this morning (a little under 4 miles) while catching up on the Bachelorette (I am hooked).  

I would tell you all about my dinner date over Facetime with my best friend, Rachael, last night.  My husband was out of town and her boyfriend was gone for the night so we had a dinner date!  We always have so much to talk about and had a great time reminiscing about the good old days.  We have so many memories that we look back on and think…”What the heck was I thinking???!?!?”  But it is fun to see how are friendship has changed and grown so much over the years. 


And her puppy, Cooper.  He is just the cutest.


I would tell you how I can’t stop looking at my watch and counting down the hours until I need to check in for my flight to Georgia tomorrow.  Last flight we took (Southwest), I forgot to check in and got a boarding pass with C44 on it!  I didn’t even know the numbers went back that far.  😉  

Speaking of my flight tomorrow… I am headed to Georgia to my in-laws lake house for almost a week of pure relaxation.  We always have such a great time and it is nice to not have an agenda for a bit.  And I am definitely looking forward to my morning runs with lots of hills!! (We don’t have those in Dallas, TX). 

As you may or may not know, my husband and I have moved quite a bit for his career.  He recently got presented with an opportunity to move for another position.  This is always a very tough decision for us, but this time was different.  We absolutely love Dallas and feel like we have really made this place home to us.  So ultimately we decided not to take the offer.  Life is full of big choices you have to make and it is important to do what feels right for you.  This is not to say we won’t be moving in the next year, but this just wasn’t the right move for our family.  

If we were having coffee, I would tell you how excited I am to be going home to Nashville in a few weeks.  I am going to my girlfriend’s bachelorette party, but built in a couple extra days so I can spend time with my family.  So excited!!

Wedding season is coming up!  We have a couple bachelorette and bachelor parties, and 4 fall weddings to attend!  We are very excited!  I think weddings are even more special now that we are married and got to experience having that day all about us, our relationship, and spending time with family and friends!


I am over the Dallas heat already.  It is hot.  And humid.  It is just gross outside.  My dogs are not really loving the weather either.  I guess this is the price you pay for a very mild winter.

I love candles!  Last night when the power went out, I lit every candle in my house.  It made me realize how much I love candles.  They are so peaceful and calming.  I need to light them more often.  

I think I am finally ready for a haircut.  You guys, it has been since last July (the day before my bachelorette party) since I cut my hair.  Yep, you read that right.  One whole year.  Fortunately I don’t get many split ends and it still feels pretty healthy.  That may have to do with the lack of washing it… I want to keep it long, but I would like a few more layers.  I am thinking about something like this.

Our coffee date is coming to an end. 😦  Time to get some work done and fill up my cup! Have a wonderful Tuesday!


  1. How often do you get your hair cut? 
  2. Are you a fan of the Bachelorette?
  3. What is one thing you would tell me on our coffee date?

    1. oh how nice!!!! that will be a nice break!! I am glad to know I am not the only one who waits so long to cut their hair!! I watch shows when my husband is gone too but it was fun to facetime my friend for dinner 🙂


  2. So cute you and your friend has a FT dinner date 🙂 I just got a hair cut last month… Cut off about 5-6 inches which was a lot for me!! But now my hair feels nice and healthy which I love, and short hair during the hot summer months is so much easier!
