COFFEE TALK 07.07.19 ☕️

Coffee Talk + My Daily Looks

Good morning, friends! It is a gorgeous sunny morning here in the suburbs of Philly, albeit quite warm and humid, but I’ll take it. I just got back from a short run/walk. I only lasted 30 minutes in this humidity, but it felt good to move.

I hope you’re having a good weekend. I’m all discombobulated after having the July 4th holiday in the middle of the week. I feel like I’ve had three Saturdays in a row. Plus I missed church last week due to flying home from Maine, so I’m all out of whack.

It will be good to have a typical Sunday today, and I’m excited to kick off a new week and get back into my routine.

This will be my son’s last week at camp, and judging from the condition of the laundry he has brought home each weekend, it’s been quite a good time. I don’t think I pulled out a single article of clothing from his duffle bag that wasn’t wet and muddy.

As for the girls and me, we’ve mostly been hanging out at home and enjoying the pool. I treated them each to a service at the nail salon on Friday, and that was fun, although we weren’t all together so it wasn’t exactly quality mother-daughter time.

Caroline is going to join me at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this week when I go to pre-shop. I’ve warned her it’s a bit of a zoo, but she wants to go. I’m hoping she can actually be helpful — even if just to bounce ideas off of and get a 2nd opinion on fit and style.

Then it occurred to me that she could even model some of the clothes… I’m sure she’ll want to try some things on. We’ll have to see how that all goes. It will be fun to have company, though.

Becca wants no parts of it, so she’s making plans with a friend. Isn’t it funny how two girls can be so different?

In other news, I finally decided to add a table to my foyer. If you’ve been following along for a while, you may remember it was a bit of a debate. I decided to leave it alone for the time being, and all of the sudden, I decided the foyer feels empty and needs a table. So I took advantage of the Pottery Barn sale last week and ordered a pedestal table I had been looking at last year.

It arrived yesterday, and Becca and Paul set it up for me. They all think it’s ridiculous and prefer the foyer open, so they started laying out all their Broadway playbills like brochures at a hotel. 🤣

That’s the thing, though. What do I put on it so it does NOT feel like a hotel? I’m afraid a big floral arrangement will seal the deal, so I’m hoping to figure out something a little different. If you have ideas, lay them on me!

If you’re on Instagram, you can see it in my Story — I videoed the girls making fun of me, but I haven’t taken a proper picture yet.

Anyway, I’m going to have to cut this short and go get ready for church.

Oh before I go, I need reading recommendations. I just finished the first five books of the Seven Sisters series, and the sixth isn’t out yet.

I got a lot of good suggestions on a Facebook post a few months ago, so I’m going to look through those again if I can find that post, but if you have a good light summer read you want to recommend, drop it in the comments below.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
