Coffee Talk 02.25.18

Greetings, friends! I hope everyone is having a good weekend.

Ours has been nice. Paul and I found ourselves kid-free once again on Friday night so we went out for a casual bite to eat. Yesterday my son had an all-day indoor drumline rehearsal so we took the girls and went to the mall.

Taking the whole family to the mall isn’t something we do often (or ever) so it was kind of fun for something different. Of course, you know me. The mall is always my idea of a good time, but it’s kind of cool that our kids are at an age now where we all think it’s a good solution for a rainy Saturday. We split up a few times so we could all accomplish our personal goals, and it worked out well.

Today we have plans to visit my in-laws after church, which is always a nice time. I’m trying not to be cranky that this is like the 5th rainy Sunday in a row. Thankfully it should dry out by the time we have to make our drive, so at least there’s that.

I’m excited by all the positive feedback on my new newsletter format. It’s been fun coming up with ideas for the exclusive features and making it more of an inside scoop. If you’re not getting my newsletter and would like to try it, you can sign up here.

If you aren’t sure you want another email in your inbox, it’s easy to unsubscribe at any time — there’s a link at the very bottom of every email. It can’t hurt to try it! If you like the blog, I’m pretty sure you’ll love the newsletter. Just sayin’.

I’m super excited to start our spring fashion series on Thursday. I’m trying to plan out my outfits so there’s a good variety. I’ll be honest that I’m not having a lot of luck finding anything I like in the new straight leg pant styles. I really just love my skinnies and bootcuts. I guess I need to get to the mall (without an entourage) and try on a bunch of styles. That’s on my agenda for this coming week.

Let me know if there are any trends you’d like to see my style or occasions you have coming up you want ideas for, and I’ll see what I can do.

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend and have a blessed Sunday!
