November Coffee Chat

Hi There!! How has everyone been?! I know things have been extremely quiet around here lately but for all good reasons. I figured today was perfect to get all caught up on why I’ve been so MIA recently. Grab your favorite drink and let’s get cozy.

While at our coffee date I would tell you…

I’ve been MIA because life has been crazy BUSY. Thankfully things have slowed down somewhat. October flew by in a blink of an eye for me because I was finishing up all things wedding. My husband and I got married on October 27th in New Orleans. Our wedding was a complete fairy tale and absolutely perfect. I’ll share photos soon! I will say that I am happy I am done with wedding planning but I still feel like I should be in planning mode. I kind of miss it. I’m sure that will wear off sooner or later. After our wedding was over with and we returned from our honeymoon I got back into the swing of work and have been non-stop. Another reason why I have not been blogging.

I am super excited that the holiday drinks at Starbucks have returned. I absolutely love their Caramel Brulee lattes. Yes, I know…super BASIC but hey, a girl has to live. What’s your favorite holiday drink?

I miss my sweet blogging friend Leslie. I know everyone who is apart of the same blogging groups know’s about her passing. It still doesn’t seem real but I know that she is doing amazing up there in heaven. She was such an amazing person. The energy she put off was infectious. Leslie was my biggest cheerleader when it came to blogging but also a dear friend. I am so thankful that blogging brought us together.

I am SLOWLY getting out of my comfort zone. I plan on sharing makeup looks that I put together on the blog very soon. Of course I am no MUA but makeup is my passion. I originally started this blog because I wanted to share makeup looks. So be on the lookout for those soon!

With life getting back to being somewhat normal I plan on getting back into the swing of blogging again. I hope that I am able to start blogging at least twice a week again. We will see how things go. I have started planning out blogging content, so I think that’s getting me back on the right track.

This time change has me all messed up. I went from my body being used to Daylights saving time, to Mexico time back to daylights saving time then it ended. I feel like I want to go to bed by 7:00 and then I am wide awake typically around 4:30 am. Hopefully soon my body will adjust.

The one year anniversary of my grandfathers passing was on Friday. I honestly can’t believe it’s already been a year since his passing. I miss him dearly but I know he is watching over me.

I have been in complete Hallmark Christmas movie mode. I love being able to snuggle on the couch with the hubby and fur babies while watching all the sappy movies.

I recently became a dry shampoo lover. I had never been the one to use dry shampoo because I am so picky about the way my hair looks. I know all of you are probably like girl what is wrong with you?! So when I got extensions a few months ago I knew that washing my hair every day would not be the best option. Now I use dry shampoo like it’s going out of style! I go three days at a time typically without washing my hair. Dry Bar dry shampoo is life! Seriously if you haven’t tried it…get you some.


So that’s all I have to share on this coffee date. What has been going on in your life?!
