Coffee Chat

If we met for coffee, we would probably start talking about the weather yesterday. While there was potential for some really scary shit, it actually wasn’t too bad most of the day. I would tell you how Zoe and I spent the day with my SIL and nephew. It included an outing to Target and Starbucks before things were supposed to get bad. We hung around her house the rest of the day working and watching the kiddos play. I decided to go home around 5:30pm and a horrible hail storm started right after I pulled into my garage! Talk about good timing! There were downed trees everywhere around us. In fact, they are still cleaning that mess up this  morning, many roads are closed.

I would probably tell you that Zoe has been fighting her sleep a lot lately. It was just naps, but last night she had a meltdown for an hour before we could get her to bed. Four month sleep regression maybe? I would ask if you had any tips!

I would ask you what your weekend plans are. I am not sure what we are doing yet, but I hope they include getting my car washed. I clean the inside often and it is always vacuumed but I haven’t cleaned the outside since I bought it. Last July.

I would tell you that I need to go shopping for some clothes! I only have a few tops that fit me right now, and one pair of jeans. All of my dresses are old and super worn and I truthfully needed new ones last year. But I was pregnant and decided to just wear them all one more year as maternity and then get new ones this year. Well that time has come and I need to do some serious shopping! I am going to be honest though, the mirror is a brutal bitch postpartum. I have been pretty good about my food lately but I can always do better. I am thinking of going back to shakes for breakfast.

I would ask you what you are reading and watching on TV. I am about one chapter into The Girl Behind. I really need to just sit down and read some!! Chris and I have been catching up on all our normal shows. Last night we watched Chicago Med. We saved Big Little Lies until all the episodes were available, so I am hoping to maybe watch some of that this weekend.

I would tell you that we are trying to really purge and clean things up around the house. There is forever a ton of baby things taking up space all over. For a tiny human, she has a lot of stuff! I have a huge pile of clothes in my office area that needs to be hung and tagged for a consignment sale my neighbor is doing towards the end of the month. I hope to sell most of it! I just want to surround myself with things I love and nothing else. The clutter gives me anxiety! My hope is to walk in to any given room and just see things that make us happy. Hopefully all of that will make it easier to stage our house whenever we decide to put it on the market.

As any good thing, our coffee date would have to come to an end eventually. You know, adulting and stuff. I would tell you that we really need to do this again soon! Why do we always wait so long before we set time aside to focus on our relationships with friends? They are important too! I would suggest that maybe next time, we try out a new restaurant! Or maybe that Sour Room in Avondale that I have been dying to go to.

Linking up with Kristen and Gretch.

    Hands raised to go to Sour Room with you!!!! I’m so glad that we were spared most of the bad stuff – although if we lived in Atlanta, it would have sucked a lot more – but I’m glad you got to spend some time with your SIL and squeeze in Target and Starbucks!

    Love the way you told this. Adulting always gets in the way and I totally agree that I only want things that make me happy to surround me. Love the de-cluttering once it’s done but boy is it hard to throw some things out! Thanks for the coffee chat!!

    What a fun idea for a post! I got rid of a ton of clothes this year… I hold on to stuff for years and some had holes and just looked like crap. It’s expensive to replace it all but I’ve tried to do a bit at a time! Glad you guys didn’t get it too bad yesterday! We were spared, too.

    I’m looking forward to watching Big Little Lies, too! The hubby might be camping this weekend, which would leave me some binge-watching time…

  • Reply Audrey April 6, 2017 at 11:22 am

    Whew… we’re opposites. I’m better about keeping the outside of the car cleaner than the inside 😉 I definitely need to vacuum it out this week, though!
    I need some serious reading time, too! I’m two or three chapters into my book and I NEED to dedicate some time to it!

    I have been trying for weeks to get my car detailed – its awful – life keeps ruining the plans though – UGH!

    Our storms ended up fizzling out a lot too – thank you God!

    I’m glad you made it home in time! Hail is no joke!! My car needs a good cleaning too…inside & out.

  • Reply Carly April 6, 2017 at 12:02 pm

    I have a feeling once you guys start watching BLL you won’t be able to stop! I can only imagine how much room baby stuff takes up, which is kind of funny when you think about someone so tiny, having so many things, but it totally makes sense. I’m so glad the weather wasn’t as bad as you were expecting yesterday, but even more glad you made it home before the hail– that’s so, so scary. Yay for new clothes, and getting rid of some older stuff. Did you end up buying a lot of maternity clothes or just try and work with things you already had that could stretch?

    Good lord my car needs to be cleaned inside AND out.

    I’m glad you got home before the hail started!

  • Reply Sierra April 6, 2017 at 12:48 pm

    I’m glad you are all ok from the storm! I heard the weather down there is really bad. I wish I vacuumed out my car more. Sad to admit but there is probably a pound of goldfish crackers in between the seats and the kids car seats. I wish events and little dates with my friends happened more often. That seems to be the first thing that takes the back burner. I’m really hoping to do a better a job at that. Beautifully Candid

    I’m glad that y’all didn’t get too terrible of weather yesterday and that you just barely missed that hail storm! I saw the news this morning and it sounded like it was pretty bad around y’all. And oh no that Zoe is going through a sleep regression! I hope that it doesn’t stick for too long!

  • Reply Sarena @ Teal Inspiration April 6, 2017 at 6:35 pm

    I desperately need to clean my car too. Adulting is hard. Good luck on your clothes shopping! I purged my closet and now I need some new things but it’s a process, just like everything else.

    Those tiny cute humans sure do take up a bunch of space with their play toys etc. SO happy the weather didn’t hit you as bad as expected. We actually got the tail end of it and on my lunch break while driving, hail was hitting my car and could hardly see the roads. Hail in Florida is kinda crazy otherwise I’m accustomed to the torrential downpours!

    You will love Big Little Lies, my Mr. watched it with me and so good!! we are behind on Med, it is our least favorite of the Chicago 3 and we still have not got into Justice. You have motivated me to clean my car today!!! Thanks love and Happy Fri-YAY to you!!

  • Reply Lauren April 7, 2017 at 8:36 am

    Post about new dresses when you find them! I always need recs. Downed trees make me nervous for some reason. I’ve only read two books in the past two months – shameful.

  • Reply mandie April 7, 2017 at 12:18 pm

    Yea, I am the opposite with my car – I’ve gone through the car wash a couple of times when it’s nice enough here in Wisconsin but the inside needs some cleaning real bad. Maybe I’ll do that this weekend…that would be a good chore for me. 🙂

    Have a great weekend!

  • Reply StephTheBookworm April 7, 2017 at 1:49 pm

    I am forever trying to declutter too! I have so much stuff and it does make me anxious. Been trying to minimize a bit but I also have a tendency to not want to let certain stuff go. Sigh.

    oh wow, that storm is crazy! scary! glad you made it home before it happened. sorry zoe has been fighting sleep 🙁 no tips obvs. but that sucks. i have never washed my car lol. one of my bucket list items is to go through a real car wash, you know, where you like drive through? i’ve never done it. KC washes our cars like once in the spring to get all the salt off from the winter, but other than that, i let the rain clean it haha. hashtag lazy!
