Friday Coffee Date With You

Happy Friday, friends!!  Well it sure is good to be back…I didn’t mean to go all MIA from the blog this week, but I ended up traveling for work and working a 12 hour day Tuesday so life kinda got a little crazy.  But, I am getting back into the swing of things and we have two of our good friends coming in town tonight for the long weekend!  We are so excited! Until then, I thought I would have a virtual coffee date with you guys.  I am sipping my black coffee as we speak.  

If we were having coffee, I would tell you, I am going to need a few cups today because I went to an early morning Body Pump class and took a long walk with the dogs all before 8am.  

I would tell you that I can’t stop thinking about the amazing, yet simple, dinner I had last night.  I made a huge kale salad with lots of goodies on it: craisins, raw corn, chopped almonds, roasted sweet potatoes, shrimp, and avocado.  It was soo good! 


I would tell you that I am getting a little tired of dog sitting.  Don’t get me wrong, I love ALL the dogs, but we have had a few lately that have been testing my patience! 🙂  

I would tell you that I feel like I am constantly cleaning my house.  I vacuum and mop multiple times a week and I feel like I can’t keep up.  

I would tell you that I am going to go shopping this afternoon for the 4 weddings we have coming up in the next two months.  I need a few new dresses so it is time to start looking.  I would ask you for suggestions on where to get cute dresses (wedding appropriate).  I am really looking forward to all the weddings (they are all a plane ride away) and travel as we have been home for the last month, which seems so weird because we usually travel a couple times per month.  

I would tell you that I love to bake… for other people.  I tend to stay away from baked goods (I’d rather demolish a bag of popcorn), but I love baking, icing and decorating cookies, cupcakes and brownies.  I made these last night so we had something sweet for when our guests come to town today.  My husband already taste tested them… 🙂


I would tell you that this week has been an emotional one.  Nothing in particular happened, but I am just feeling all the emotions. I am really getting excited for fall and the holidays so I can spend some time with my family and my friends.  

I would tell you that I tried out a new church on Sunday (I have been church hopping the last couple weeks) and really loved it.  For me, church is time for self-reflection and just time to thank God for all that I have.  

I would tell you that I am excited for the weekend with our friends.  We have a few things planned so it should be a good time! 

I am off to refill my cup of coffee!  Have a great weekend! 


  1. Where would you shop for dresses for a wedding?
  2. What would you tell me if we were having a coffee date?
  3. What is on your agenda for the weekend?

  1. Wow 4 weddings in 2 months?! That’s intense! I like looking at Target, Express, and Macy’s for dresses. That salad and those brownies look amazing! I want to be one of your house guests! 😀
    If we were having coffee I’d ask you to make me that salad haha!
