This girl right here is over the moon excited about this weekend because guess what! I have FOUR days off in a row. gasp! It's like a mini vacation and I'm not sure how to handle myself. I have a fun to-do list a mile long! And what a better way to kick off a mini-vacation weekend than a coffee date? I think it's the perfect way to say cheers to the weekend, don't you?
Many of you mentioned that if we were on a coffee date, you'd order tea, and I'd probably make you teach me how to order it, because I love tea. But other than good ole Southern sweet tea, I'm lost. I so want to be a girl who drinks tea and reads a book in a coffee shop--so tell me how to order it next time.
Friends, I'm so happy just to be chatting with you. This week was a blur in a bad way and I'm not sure why. I'm baffled that it's Friday already, because the days all seemed to mesh together and I couldn't tell you the last time I talked to my best friends. Working nights will do that to you, for sure. I'm a girl who needs face time and connections and you being next to me, talking about everything from what you ate for lunch to the convictions God has been placing on your heart lately. I crave that time.
If we were on a coffee (or tea) date, I'd just soak in the fact that I am off work and able to enjoy a weekend like a normal human being. I plan to cram as much good things into this weekend as possible, so be on the lookout on Instagram. It's bound to be a good time!
If we were sitting together enjoying a cup of joy, I'd hope it was in a red Starbucks cup, because by george, I'm thrilled that they're out already. I'm already using my Christmas mug at home. And no, I'm not wishing away Thanksgiving, you turkey lovers, I just enjoy the whole holiday season and want to celebrate it from now all the way to January, as big and as much as possible. Is that too much to ask? So haters gonna hate, but I'm gonna be celebrating like no body's business.
If we were on a coffee date, I'd probably show you 14 different options for Christmas cards and beg you to help me pick one because I am just that indecisive. Between Minted, Shutterfly, and Walmart.com, there are too many fantastic options for me to choose from. But it's our first Christmas as the Walkers, so Christmas cards are a must. If you want some Christmas cheer from us, leave your address!
I'd probably tell you that I miss my husband. He's on a business trip and I've realized in the past 48 hours how much I hate being home alone and how much I take him for granted. We're both off work on Monday so it'll be Andrew and Rachel's Day of Fun and I am counting down the minutes til I get to hug that sweet man of mine!
If we were on a coffee date, I'd tell you how much God amazes me sometimes. He answers prayers in the craziest of ways and never ceases to make me realize how much He loves me. My prayer life has been lacking lately, but I'm working hard on filling up a prayer journal, just to write and get the words out. And that time with Him is so sweet and so needed.
And if we were on a coffee date, you'd probably hear some Gilmore Girls reference like "oy with the poodles already" because I just.can't.get.enough of it. Y'all, I watched it religiously in high school and have seen every episode 4738 times since, but it never gets old. Ever. Do you watch? You should.
What would you tell me if we had a little time to chit chat? How is your life? What are you looking forward to this weekend? Spill some stories, my dears. I can't wait to hear and "catch up" with you! Xoxo
I'm linking up with the precious Jenna from Dearest Love for this week's Coffee Date!
