Coffee Chat + Goals

Hey Sweet Friends! Happy Monday! I know you're reading this, rolling your eyes wondering what can possibly be happy about a Monday? Mondays are a blank slate, a chance to make new goals and start fresh. I want Monday mornings to be messy buns and coffee. I want it to be coffee dates in my living room while we share what's on our hearts and our goals for the week. So get cozy with your favorite mug of coffee and blanket and let's have a coffee date. No make up or pretty outfits required.

If you and I were on a coffee date...

We would be snuggled in my new living room with blankets in our laps, coffee in our mugs, a box of Sprinkles donuts on the table and my Willow pup between us. My cat, Chance, would be walking around meowing for attention (or food) because he's bossy like that. He's the cat. He rules the house. I would be drinking a donut shop coffee with Coldstone sweet cream creamer, because that's my go to at home. I'd show you the basket of K-Cups and the selection of creamers and offer you whatever you'd like because we believe in variety in this house.

I would tell you...

that our weekend was another wonderful one. Saturday was spent bargain hunting at flea markets and local salvage stores with my parents then we had lunch at one of our favorite local burger cafes. The rest of the evening was spent playing with kittens and hanging out at my mom and dad's house. Sunday was a lazy start to the day, which are always my favorite mornings. The rest of the day was spent getting ready for the week and watching Shark Week.

that I got the Alice Through the Looking Glass eye shadow palette. I can't wait to play around with different looks with it. The colors are so bright and most of them are out of my comfort zone but I want to step out of my comfort zone more and what better way than with pretty make up that can be wiped off if I don't like it?

I'm also thinking about taking a Facebook/Blogging break for a couple weeks. I have a few blog posts to wrap up but I'd like to take some time to work on getting ahead in blogging and to focus on my personal life; working out, yoga, and getting closer to God. I want to fill my life with all the things that bring me joy, not that blogging doesn't but I need to take a break and shift my focus.

I'm so ready for fall. I love summer, don't get me wrong but fall is where my heart is. Fall is all things cozy; hoodies and apple cider, favorite blankets and the colors changing. I'm so ready for it to be cooler and actually being able to get outside and enjoy things. Summer still has a while so i'll embrace it but honestly, can fall come already, please?

What would you share with me if we were on a coffee date?

Monday Mantra


How'd I do with last week's goals?

+ Learn to live with grace when things don't go according to MY plan I did. It's always a work in progress though.

+ Do yoga 4 days this week Fail! I don't think I did yoga one time last week.

+ Wake up at 7 Monday-Friday Fail! I'm giving this one up because i've only got two more weeks of sleeping in and I plan on enjoying them.

+ Block schedule. Set my phone for 20-30 per task for the day I did this when needed. It's definitely something I need to do when I'm having trouble staying focused or getting motivated.

+ Start the recipe group back up Win! I finally did this! You can join us here.

+ Set time aside in the evenings to spend with my husband, no distractions this was a win some nights. Others we were both busy doing other things. It's definitely something to keep working on.

+ Fulfill my tee shirt and vinyl order No excuses on this one, it was just a fail.

+ Return blog and Instagram comments by the next day This is a work in progress. Somedays I did it but I did finish them all by Sunday so that's still good.

This week's goals

+ Do yoga 4 days this week

+ Finish blog collaboration with my friend Mistle

+ Fulfill vinyl orders

+ Empty out my e-mail inbox

+ Write in inspiration/gratitude journal each day

+ Read for 15 minutes a day

What are some goals you'd like to achieve this week?

  1. Happy Monday Sweet Friend!! If you and I were on a coffee date I would tell you that I planned on doing tons of blogging stuff this weekend but accomplished nothing. My fiance and I were complete bums this weekend but I'm totally okay with that. We watched a ton of movies and snuggled up on the couch with our fur babies. It was really nice because we have not got to spend a weekend at home in the last three weekends.

    I would tell you that I am potentially thinking of doing a beach body three week challenge. If I do it hopefully I will get great results. I would also tell you that picking out flowers and table arrangements for my wedding is a lot harder than I thought but it's a lot of fun as well.

    I hope you have a wonderful Monday!!! Good luck with reaching your goals this week!!!


Thanks for stopping by and leaving some love. Have a peachy day.
