Good morning & happy, happy Saturday to you! Saturday mornings sure are sweet to me lately. They’re my favorite time to slow down and just go with the flow. I feel like I may sound like a broken record, but we’ve been non-stop lately. C-R-A-Z-Y doesn’t really even seem to be the best word to describe what’s been going on in our world the past few months. This is exactly the reason as to why I absolutely can’t wait to catch up with you over coffee!
Okay, okay– a virtual coffee date, rather. Everyone loves a good coffee date with their friends and that’s exactly what I want to with you today! It’s been quite a while since we last grabbed a cup of joe together, so today seemed like the most perfect day to catch up on ALL the things. So, let’s grab a virtual warm cup of coffee together and chat! Shall we? Make sure to join the conversation and share your thoughts in the comments below!
I finished my latest read, “Girl Wash Your Face” by Rachel Hollis. This was literally my favorite book of the year so far. It’s SO so good. Every chapter was so real, relatable and filled with so many good takeaways. I honestly can’t recommend this book enough. I’ll have a recap up for you really soon!
I’ve been doing 10 million times better with getting in my early morning runs and I couldn’t be happier about that. Since changing my routine and going back to work full-time, I was pretty down about not being able to really fit in a solid run as often as I was used to. But, I’ve been waking up around 5:30 to get up and get outside for at least 3 miles a few times each week before work. It’s my new favorite time to run, hands down. The gorgeous sunrise, the neighbors sprinklers keeping me cool (HA!), time to listen to my favorite audiobooks or podcasts, the peace and quiet while everyone else is sleeping, and just the best ever, “me-time”. I love it!
I’ve been eating these coconut covered dates on the regular lately, and I don’t hate it. They literally have 2 ingredients, ….coconuts & dates….and they taste like heaven! I have plans to make them myself soon with our food processor, but just spending a few dollars for quite a full bag doesn’t sound so bad either. They make for the perfect sweet treat throughout the day to fill my never ending sweet tooth.
We’ve been riding a lot more lately too! It’s amazing how much further you can get, faster, on the bike rather than running. It’s my favorite way to spend a sunny afternoon lately.
Oh, and as if you didn’t already know–I can’t stop with the Kevita’s lately either. I tried a new flavor and it was just as delicious as my Blueberry Cherry favorite.
Last but most definitely NOT least, we FINALLY did a thing…we SOLD our house!! Ahhh….I’ve been holding it in for weeks now and I’m so excited to finally get to share with you! We close on June 15th and I couldn’t be happier. We’ve had the craziest past 12 months in this one and are just ready for a good fresh start. I told Nick the other day, I don’t quite know what life would be like if we didn’t get a chance to move to a new place at least once a year. I think I’m addicted to moving and starting over….that sounds insane as I type it out. BUT, there’s just something so cleansing and freeing about going through everything we own once a year, getting rid of anything not needed, and just starting over in a new neighborhood around Little Rock. We’re wrapping things up this next week in this current house and then we’ll be onto our next adventure. I’ll of course keep you updated when we find out next project, but for now I’m just looking forward to a good stress-free break for a good little while. We’re in need of a good vacation after this project too! HA!
Needless to say, stay tuned! 😉
Alright, alright–that’s enough of my random shares for coffee date! I want to hear about YOU! Tell me, what was the last book you finished and couldn’t believe how much you loved it? What’s your favorite time of the day to get your sweat on? Are you a Kevita fan? When was the last time you moved?
Today’s blog is part of my linkup with Deborah at ConfessionsOfaMotherRunner! Join us next month for the Ultimate Coffee Date! I can’t wait to see you there! 😉
I hope you guys have the most wonderful weekend! I can’t wait to catch up with you again really soon!
