If we were having coffee...
... It would probably be at Starbucks because I am there more often than I've ever been in my life! Interviews, prenatal meetings, child-free work time. It's quite the expensive addiction! I'm already looking forward to a much needed work session on Friday while the girls are playing at Grandpa's between prenatal appointments with clients.
... I would tell you that I'm working hard not to say I'm "busy". I am, busy that is, but "busy" sounds negative and while I really wish I had more time for different things in my life (more blogging, playdates, a cleaner house, homeschooling the girls...) - the things that take up my time are good things. Work - which is my business and passion, so a good thing! My girls, friends and family! After that there's very little time left over, and right now, that's okay! As my sweet friend Angela pointed out to me recently when I was talking about this being a hard season of life #harddoesntmeanbad
... I would tell you that for the first time in a really long time I have managed to consistently have a Bible Study. I've never been one to use an e-Bible. There's something that just feels off to me about flipping the pages of the Bible like I scroll through Instagram. BUT, that's what I'm doing. Using a Bible app & going through a couple of studies on the She Reads Truth app. It's been great, exactly what I need and meeting me in my full schedule (see that... trying really hard not to say "busy"). It really helps to set my day off on the right foot and when I don't get it done first thing in the morning I make it a point to do it before I sit down to do other work on my iPad later in the day.
... I would tell you about Cora's 3rd birthday celebration! I can't believe my baby is already 3! We had a very small celebration and it was honestly the least stressful hosting I've done in a long time!
... I would tell you that I *hate* the weather we're having. Where the heck is fall?!?
... I would tell you that I think I have a thrifting habit. I'm always getting things we "need" (or legitimately need) or things I've had my eye on but don't want to spend retail etc. and it's always great deals! I just find it becoming a little too easy to spend $10 here & there when it isn't really in the budget, I'm probably going to have to go back to a cash envelope for my thrifting budget.
... if I were being really vulnerable and honest I would tell you that I need to find time to work out again. It has been a rough year for my body. The first year postpartum, still breastfeeding, school, working, starting a business, other life stresses. My weight has been a bit all over the place, literally fluctuating up and down about 20 pounds. The icing on the I need to loose weight again cake would be that two people have asked about my non-existent pregnancy. *insert side eye emoji here...*
... I would tell you that I'm excited about Halloween, or Make Believe Day as we're dubbing it with our girls. This year Coralie will be Abby Kadabby and Ada will be Cookie Monster. I've finished the cookie monster costume but am only about a quarter of the way through with Cora's, I've got to get busy with that!
... I would jokingly tell you that I think I need to start writing what I wear each day in my calendar. I don't have a huge wardrobe (but it's growing!) but it's still decently sized... I'm pretty sure I accidentally wore the same shirt (different pants and accessories though...) when I met a couple in a birth class, again for their doula interview and yet again when I met them for their first prenatal. This isn't the first time something like this has happened either.
If we were having coffee, what would you share with me?
