Coffee Chat 9.12.18
Let’s sit down and have some coffee together. It’s been awhile. I’ll also be linking up with my sweet Peaceful Posse friend Lecy, who inspired me to write posts like this in the first place, she is now hosting a monthly coffee chat link up!
Anyway, my cup is full and I’m ready to chat. Thank you for noticing my new pants. I went through my closet again with my mom over the weekend and realized I had very few pants for work that fit right now. I’m accepting my body as is and I’m cool with it, but it does mean I need to add a few more pants that fit back into my wardrobe because it will be too cold for skirts and dresses pretty soon. Don’t roll your eyes, winter is coming. This is Minnesota after all. Anyway, back to my new pants. I hit up the thrift store first looking for something and did find one pair, but man was it slim pickings. I loved my secondhand summer challenge and I will continue to try hard to shop secondhand first, but I will be honest, old habits die hard. So I broke my secondhand shopping. I found these at Target. It’s the new Wild Fable brand. And I love them. I will continue to always check the thrift store first – but I think there will be some Target and maybe Old Navy shopping in my future too. I’m not perfect and that’s ok!
Speaking of things that are perfect though, I am loving my current haircut so much. I won’t say it is perfect, because nothing is, but this style has been so easy to work with and I’m having so much fun styling it. I haven’t loved my hair this much in I’m not sure how long. It just feels so nice!
Can you believe yesterday was 17 years since the 9/11 attacks? I still remember it like it was yesterday. I was in college and I was scrambling to change my class schedule because I was changing majors. Sometimes it blows my mind when I look at Ollie that he will never know what the world was like before that day. And I get sad sometimes when I think even more than that, his childhood will be different than mine because of lockdown drills at school thanks to so many shootings. But, when I look at him he also gives me hope. I believe his generation could change the world for the better.
Do you have fun plans this Fall? I have so many things I hope we get to do. Visiting the apple orchard, the pumpkin patch, and the MN Landscape Arboretum are high on my list right now. Ollie’s requesting a bonfire so I am hopeful the weather allows for that this weekend. And of course we have our big Oktoberfest in a few weeks, but I kind of want to go to one of the Oktoberfest events around town this year too. A lot of our favorite breweries are hosting little events and then there’s the big tent down at Gastof’s in NE Mpls. I’ve never been, but maybe this will be the year we actually go, you never know.
Well, my cup is just about empty, how about yours? I’m glad you were able to take some time out to chat with me! I’m already looking forward to next month for another coffee date or who knows, if I’m feeling spicy that day it might be drinks instead, ha!
