Coffee Talk 03.03.19

Greetings and good morning! I hope you all are having a great weekend.

We’ve had a weekend of birthday celebrations, as Paul turned 50 on Friday. My son was able to come home from college for the weekend, and we had a small family party on Friday night. Then last night we celebrated with some friends. All of my pictures have a bunch of other people and their kids in them, so I won’t share them here, but I’m glad I thought to take a few so we have them for our family album.

I try to put together a photo book every year with our family pictures, but I still haven’t done 2018 yet. I need to get on that!!! I loved Apple photo books, but they’ve since discontinued that service, and I haven’t found another one I like as well, so I keep procrastinating.

This week is going to be a whirlwind because I’ve got a lot to do before I leave for Disney World on Wednesday. The girls and I are meeting my parents down there for a few days, and I am more than ready! This trip is purely for vacation, and I don’t remember the last time I went anywhere and didn’t have to pack outfits to shoot for the blog.

Actually, I take that back. I also did that when I went to Maine in January, and it was wonderful.

While I’d love to get a chance to shoot some spring looks in warm weather, and Orlando should definitely provide that this week, I didn’t want to take that time away from my family. A Disney vacation is hectic enough without having to fit in a photo shoot, so I’m just going to deal with whatever the weather has for me here when I get back and focus all of my time in Florida on making memories with my parents and the girls.

I will still get pictures of my daily outfits, though. My 16 year old is always happy to take an iPhone shot for me, so I’ll share those on Instagram as we go and then do a recap here on the blog when I get back.

I still have no idea what I’m wearing and packing. I was waiting for the trip to get closer to see what the weather is going to be like, since it can go either way this time of year in Orlando. It looks like it’s going to be quite warm, so I do need to get out some shorts and lighter tops. I guess that’s what I’ll be working on this afternoon!

I also have a special Facebook Live for you this week — I’m doing a hair curling tutorial with L’ange, so that will be a little different, but I’ve had some questions about how I curl my hair and I figured this would be a good opportunity to demo that.

In addition to all that, we’re meeting my in-laws for dinner tomorrow night, and I have an appointment to pick up my new eyeglasses and a followup on the new contacts I’m trying out, so I have a full couple of days before I can head to Florida!

It’s all good, though. I’ve got quite a few blog posts prepped already for the upcoming week, and packing shouldn’t take long without photo shoots to think about, so I’m sure I can get it all done without stressing out too much.

Of course, the girls are pretty excited too. (My son declined the offer to come with, so my husband decided to stay back as well. Neither are big Disney fans, go figure!)

When I get back, my son will be home for his Spring Break, so it will be nice to have him around for a little bit.

So yeah, that’s the latest! I was thinking I’d also share some of my recent try-ons or what I’ve worn this week, but this is getting long and I’m running out of time so I’ll save those for next week.

P.S. The Shopbop Sale has been extended one more day! If you missed it, you can see all my top picks HERE and I have a bunch of try-ons saved to my highlight reel on Instagram.

I hope y’all enjoy the rest of your weekend!
