Tie Dye Choker Dress + Coffee Date Vol. 1

Let’s go on a coffee date!! If we were to go to coffee, what would I talk about!?  Coffee dates are my favorite.  One, because I LOVE coffee, (I never understand people that don’t) and two, I love to connect with people, share what’s on my heart and hear what is on theirs. If I were at Starbucks I would order an almond milk latte with 2 pumps of sugar free cinnamin dulce.  If we were meeting at Peet’s Coffee I would order a green tea matcha made with almond milk.  What is your drink of choice?tye-dye-chats-over-coffee- choker dress

I would share the following:

  • I haven’t started my Christmas shopping yet.
  • One week in this month I will be working 8 days in a row and I am not looking forward to it!
  • My kids have been sick for the past 5 days, they are all taking turns.
  • The kids will be writing letters to “Father Christmas” this year.  We have never had them write a list but they are old enough now.  We also have never left out cookies and milk.  We will do that as well.
  • My 11 month old black lab is partially trained but still manages to dart and run away from us at least 4 times a week (the neighbors are tired of it).
  • I want a new couch and I want it to be blue!
  • I don’t drink enough water.  I am really working on at least a liter of water a day and will go up from there.
  • I have been going to the gym 5-6 times per week and have been incorporating a lot more weights which feels great.
  • Our gym got new spin bikes and I want to try them out.
  • My parents still live in CT but my brother and I are here.  This time of year is always the hardest without them. We are dying to have them out here.
  • I have some really exciting news coming down the pike for 2017 and I cannot wait to share!!

    Love this concept!!! So many things to chat about!! I wld order a chai latte from Starbucks, (weird non coffee drinker ??), I am making a conscious effort to drink more water, I think we’d exchange ideas on what to get our kids for Christmas and then I’d pick your brain regarding fashion and blogging!!!

    This dress is perfection, and so cute on you! Adding it to my wish list lol. Loving the long sleeve dress trend, along with all the great things on this one.
    I miss coffee dates with you! You are the best coffee date EVER!!!
    Let’s see: I ordered all my kids Christmas presents from target.com in one shot when they were having a 30% of toys sale. Haha they are still little so it’s probably easier to shop for them. They have had a mild cold for like 2 months straight, they were over it for a week but I think kids church brought it back.
    Quinn is so into music and dancing/singing lately. You’d crack up at her!
    I need to work out so bad, but haven’t been able to find a good winter routine. I hate going to the gym, but maybe if I met with a trainer a couple times I can get a better idea what to do. I asked for some work out dvds for Christmas to the working out at home!!!
    I just switched some stuff around in my house and since we have no closets on the first floor we just bought lockers of Craigslist!! I’m in the process of painting them and we’ll probably bring them in over the weekend! I wish you could see in person!
    I start playing keys on the worship team again in 2 weeks!!! Can’t wait!
    Miss and love you!
