Coffee Talk 02.03.19

Good morning! I hope you all are having a good weekend and surviving the cold. It’s finally starting to let up around here… and by let up, I mean it’s no longer in the single digits. Hey, it’s progress!!!

I’m about to see what running in 16° feels like. When I looked at the forecast yesterday, it seemed like it would be in the 20s this morning, but now it looks like it won’t get there till I’m in church, so I’m going to see if I can hack it.

There is no wind and some sun, so hopefully it won’t be too bad. I don’t have time to get to the gym and back before church, and I don’t think I can’t take another treadmill run anyway.

Any-who. That’s probably more than you care to know about my exercise conundrums.

We got a surprise visit with my son this weekend. We were planning to visit my in-laws to celebrate my father-in-law’s birthday, so I texted him to see if he would want us to pick him and bring him with us since his college is on our way, and he did!

We had a good time playing cards and eating pizza, and I made a big pan of Scotcheroos because that’s a favorite of my father-in-law and my son. (We use all chocolate chips for the topping — no butterscotch chips. In case you decide to make them, that’s what I would recommend.)

He ended up coming home with us for the night, and we’ll take him back this afternoon, so that was a nice unexpected turn of events.

So who has big Super Bowl plans? We don’t have any plans, and I really don’t care who wins, although I’m not a fan of another Patriots win. #sorrynotsorry

I suppose the game will be on, mainly because my younger daughter wants to watch it, but I will probably be in the basement binge-watching Home Town. They came out with a 3rd season, and I’m so excited! I missed them.

In other news, I got my Scottsdale plans squared away! I have plane tickets, a hotel room, and a photographer lined up. Now I have to decide what to wear. It will be late February, so I’m thinking I’ll plan a few outfits to kick off 26 Days of Spring Fashion, which starts on March 1st.

I’m not really feeling spring fashion yet, but I definitely find myself gravitating toward all the transition styles I’m seeing in the stores right now, so hopefully I can get myself geared up for spring fashion by the end of the month.

Meanwhile, does anyone care about Valentine’s Day outfits? Is that even a thing at our age? I usually post a few Valentine’s Day looks, and if I’m going to do that, I need to get on it.

What do you all do for V-Day, if anything, and what types of outfits would you be looking for?

We usually go out to dinner, but not necessarily on the 14th. Since it’s a Thursday this year, we’ll probably go out on the 15th or 16th. I leave on the 17th for Scottsdale, so it will be nice to have a date night before I take off.

Oh, and before I go, I updated my Nordstrom Favorites page, and I also updated my Current Favorites widget on the sidebar. Both were woefully outdated, so if you’re looking for new shopping inspiration, check them out.

So yeah, that’s about all I’ve got today. Not a lot going on, but hey, it’s not January 74th anymore! You gotta be thankful for that.

Have a relaxing and blessed Sunday!!!
