October Coffee Date

Hard to believe we are nearing the end of October. Halloween is this week (super excited) and then we are in the home stretch till the end of the year. It’s been a hot minute since I have done a coffee date post, which is where I just chat with you guys.

Coffee Date

If we were on a coffee date…

I would probably be counting down the days til red cups appear at Starbucks because I am basic and they are my favorite. They just scream holidays to me…

I would then ask what your favorite holiday drink is. Mine is a gingerbread latte!

I would tell you that toddlers are HARD. I love being a mom, but some days I feel so exhausted both physically and mentally. Liam is so active which I am grateful for but mama needs more naps.

I would ask what you’ve been reading as I always need new book recs. Then I would tell you I am ready for the election next week. I hope you are voting! I don’t care for who just vote and educate yourself.

I would ask if you have a good lip balm right now. If not grab some Fresh sugar lip balm because it’s SO GOOD! Only on my mind because with the colder weather my lips have been chapped.

I would also tell you that I am loving A Million Little Things. I do not think it’s ANYTHING like This Is Us but for sure it’s own unique show. I like that it deals with depression, anxiety, and suicide. It’s important we see that represented on TV.

I would hope we get some good time to chat but most likely I will feel rushed to pick Liam up from Mothers Day Out. Which he ABSOLUTELY loves. I have loved volunteering at his school as much as I can.

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

      I’m loving A Million Little Things. James Roday is a favorite of mine, so it’s fun to see him something new, and I like the topics they focus on, but also that there is humor and friendship. šŸ™‚

      I’m excited for Halloween too, though there’s a chance of rain, so boo!

      This has got to be one of my favorite blog formats- every time you post one, my day is immediately brightened. If we were on a coffee date, I’d match your gingerbread latte with a venti black iced tea, unsweetened with extra ice. I’d also be right there with you when it comes to voting and the importance of educating ourselves on the candidates/propositions. Love this!

      I’d ask you how old your littles were and see if we could arrange a play date (and mommy coffee date!). I’d love to gab with you about a million little things, it’s becoming my new favorite show. Am I the only one that let the joy of This Is Us peter out?

      I love coffee and Starbucks’ holiday blends are something I always look forward to. I like Peppermint frappe. But I would always take a macchiatto anyday.

      The coffee lover in me can’t wait for the red cup as well. I can’t believe this year is ending soon, thank God for a warm cup of coffee.

      I would totally agree that motherhood is exhausting! My oldest started kindergarten this year and I am the yearbook coordinator/photographer/designer/everything so I am at the school a lot. And my youngest is in preschool, so I’m often running out to pick him up, too.

      I think I would tell you that I can’t stay too long because I am still not finished getting all my ‘trick or treat’ candy ready for Halloween! Every year I seem to lose track of time and then get stressed when I haven’t made up everything for the night.

      Gingerbread lattes are my favorite, too! And my toddler was so much yesterday that I cried after he went to bed because it felt like the first time I could breathe all day. Such is life. šŸ¤·ā€ā™€ļø

      I so love coffee chats! I would ask you how your month is going and how you are doing but how you are really doing. I love quick little chats but I also like to get real with my quick little chats

      There is a local coffee house that makes amazing coffee. My husband has really liked to start coming with me on Saturday mornings for a little coffe date.

      I also have a love for starbucks red cups. I think it’s the only time I will actually go get a drink from there. Cheers to voting! Hope you find a book recommendation you love.

      I tried to watch A Milion Little Things but I just didn’t want to watch so much about suicide – it didn’t sit well with me! It’s such an important topic but just not what I wanted to unwind with. I was sad because I love This is Us so much.
      You’ll have to pass along your toddler tips– the twins are due soon!

      I don’t have a favorite holiday coffee. I guess I am boring that way, I like simple coffee. I have not even heard of A Million Little Things, however, I do really enjoy This Is Us. I will have to check it out!

      A coffee date sounds amazing right now! The weather is so perfect for it right now and man do I love all things pumpkin spice! I think if we were on a coffee date right now, I would tell you that my socks are mismatched and they are probably going to be mismatched all winter long thanks to boot weather <3

      Oh, I love the style of this post! It’s like a little diary entry. šŸ™‚
      What would I tell you if we were on a coffee date? First of all, can we make it a hot chocolate date? LOL
      Halloween was so much fun. I don’t really do the candy or trick-or-treating, but I LOVE dressing up. I was Belle for my church’s trunk-or-treat, Mulan for a Halloween dance I attended, and my grandmother and I made this adorable skirt that has Cruella, Maleficent, and Ursula on it! But if we were on a hot chocolate date, I ‘d tell you that my family ALWAYS starts decorating in November (usually late November but we’ve started doing it right after Halloween lately. šŸ˜€
      I would also tell you that I am re-reading Jane Eyre and Little Women, because they’re some of my favorite classics.
