If We Were On a Coffee Date
Hello Beautiful Peachies! I feel like I haven't blogged in an eternity. Really it's only been a week but during that week I was busy enjoying time with my family that lives in Illinois and travels down to Georgia every summer to spend a week with us. I enjoyed taking a break from social media and spending time laughing, loving, crafting, eating, and making memories with them. During that week July rolled in and really swept me off my feet. I mean, wasn't it just January?
Since July is here, it's time for me to share my goals for the month but first I want to recap my week with my family. So I hope you're snuggled in with a cup of coffee. If not, i'll wait while you go grab one.
If You & I were on a coffee date right now...
i'd tell you...
+ As much as I missed all you wonderful ladies in the blogging community it was nice to have a small break and just enjoy time with family.
+ My hubby had three days off last week and Monday of this week off, too. I soaked up every second of it.
+ I really enjoyed my talks with my Aunt last week. It was refreshing to really be able to sit down and spend quality time together.
I feel like it brought us even closer together. I even cried when I hugged her good-bye, which is something I haven't done in a while.
+ After last week I feel inspired for a blog change & I even have a new creative venture in the works.
+ I really want to up my Instagram game, too.
+ I miss doing yoga. I think it's time to start working out again.
+ Last night's dinner was so amazing yet so simple.
Rotisserie chicken, asian salad and Hawaiian pasta salad.
I feel like my body needs a detox from all the amazing food we ate last week.
+ I feel like fixing my hair and make up in the summer is a waste of time because i'm either going to sweat it off the minute I step outside. Georgia humidity isn't a joke, y'all! Or it's going to rain and well, there it goes. Because of this I have a new summer hair and make up routine and all of it together is under $30. I'll share that soon.
+ Speaking of rain. It's been storming like crazy here for the last two days & i'm loving it. Usually I'm not crazy about the rain but I don't have anywhere to go and I need to get my house clean so that's the perfect excuse! Right now it's rainy and I have three of our four sweet pups at my house with me. (Long Story short-three of our dogs are actually my parent's dogs but they get to come stay with us sometimes so two of them are visiting right now.)
+ I've been trying to read Amy Poehler's Yes Please since my honeymoon last September. It's not that I don't like it, it's just that I don't have time to read. I'm determined to finish it this month.
+ I'd show you pictures from last week on my phone.
+ I'd tell you that I already have anxiety about sending my son to school this year. It probably has everything to do with the hot mess someone else's immaturity landed us in last year when we were reported for being out of district. It's okay though, jealousy is an ugly thing and we'll continue to rise above. But really, can't we just have eternal summer?
+ I'm also having anxiety about building our dream house. It's going to be our forever home, which excites me but right now we stand in the midst of a whole bunch of unknowns and I'm not fond of that. I'm just ready for construction to begin.
+ I'd ask you if you've seen my Pinterest board Dream Casa
These are my future house goals.
+I'd tell you that I can't get enough of Eric Church's Record Year or Dierks Bentley's Black and how Meghan Trainor's I Love Me is my jam lately.
+ I'd also tell you about my new creative venture but since we're not really on a coffee date I'm going to leave you hanging. Yeah, that's mean but I can't share until i'm 100% ready. Stay tuned for that though.
If we were on a coffee date what would you share with me?
