Let’s Have a Coffee Date (Vol. 3)

I have so many things I want to share with y’all, so I thought I would put it together in one of my favorite formats to read and write: the coffee date! I wish I could have a cup of coffee with every single one of you at my favorite café but a virtual coffee date will have to do. So, grab a cup of coffee (or hot apple cider these days for me!), and let’s chat.


If we were having coffee together, I would ask you if you had seen the Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life trailer. I would tell you I am even more excited to watch it now that the trailer has come out. Of course, I would also mention I don’t actually have Netflix right now (I usually prefer reading to watching TV, so I have never felt like I needed it), but I will be getting Netflix just for Gilmore Girls!

I would share that my obsession with colorful pants is still going strong, and now I want fall colors! This year, I finally got a pair of olive pants that I like, and I pretty much want these Old Navy pants  (not an affiliate link) in every color.

I would mention I’m out of my reading slump with two great books in a row. I will share more during the linkup, but I really liked You Will Know Me by Megan Abbott, and I am currently devouring Baby Doll by Hollie Overton (as in, I will probably be done before this post goes live. Haha).

If I know you’re into fantasy football, I would share I recently tied with someone with 132 points each. Fantasy football is so crazy, but that’s definitely the strangest thing that has happened to me in my three years playing.

I would tell you I have a full day of testing tomorrow (ultrasound and nuclear medicine), and I am already feeling over it. I went to the doctor last week too, and I know that’s going to be part of my life now, but some days I just don’t want to do it. I’m really praying all the tests come out OK!

Of course, I would share about our trip to the Smoky Mountains and how refreshing it was. Even though I am all about water, I’m really starting to love spending time in the mountains, too. If I feel like getting really into it, I might tell you I have a dream of living in North Carolina. I love the idea of being close to both the ocean and the mountains.

I would tell you I am super excited to see my younger brother in Austin this weekend. He’s one of my favorite people in the world, but we don’t get to see each other much. It’s going to be great to catch up on everything going on in his life.

Now it's your turn! What would you tell me?

  2. I have only been to NC once and loved it. I always wanted to move there but the cards were always stacked against me. It's such a great place. Good luck with your drs appt tomorrow.

  3. I hope you have a fun weekend with your brother! And if you ever make it back to NC, I hope you'll give Roanoke, VA a look, too! It's nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains and I love it so much! I think we'll eventually end up moving back there after our little stint here in Richmond. PS Roanoke has a huge hospital system, hint hint!

  8. Good luck with the testing tomorrow! I know that it has to be such a pain after doing it for so long! I saw the Gilmore Girls trailer yesterday, and I really can't wait until it comes on! I pretty much teared up when I saw it and I think that I'll probably cry throughout the whole thing! I can't wait to hear more about your Smoky Mountains trip!

  10. Those ON pants are amazing! I need to see if my store has them! And don't you hate when you tie in Fantasy? It's only happened to me once or twice in years but it's so annoying. Although I guess it's better than losing by a point!

  12. OH MY GOODNESS. I cried all three times I watched the GG trailer. Seriously, so so so so excited. Such a long time coming. I've been reading a lot, but not very diversely... oh well. :) I hope that everything goes well with the doctor. Here I am prepping for Halloween, making it through busy work days with my new boss, and looking forward to Christmas even though I should not/don't want to skip all of fall. :P XO - Alexandra

  13. I hope that you have a great time in Austin with your brother! I love the mountains. The idea of somewhere like North Carolina where you can have the best of both worlds sounds awesome. I feel like I can breathe & relax when I'm in the mountains.

Good luck at testing girl, prayers that all turns out ok!!

  17. My sister moved to North Carolina and loves it. I don't see her ever leaving there! She wants me to move there, too, but it's just not the best state for teachers to work in.

    Have a blast with your brother!
