Virtual Coffee Date

Good Morning!  How is everyone this morning?!
One of my favorite blogs, Eat, Live, Run, will often write a post called a virtual coffee date, it’s simply a post as if we were having a coffee date! Like if you and I were sitting at my local coffee shop, what would we talk about?  Gossiping, catching up on life, ya know…chatting it up! I really loved the idea of the “coffee dates” so I decided to borrow it!
So, grab yourself a hot cup of coffee and lets start talking…go ahead, I’ll wait! 
If we were having coffee this morning, I would tell you that I am leaving to go on vacation tomorrow morning! EKKKKKK! I am SO excited! To actually be off for 10 days…I can’t even begin to show my excitement!  I am totally burnt out from work, and could really use a recharge. We are heading to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina! I think what I am most excited for is relaxing by the beach. Nick and I are headed there with his family and we both are really looking forward to it. Sun, fun, family, and relaxation! What more can you ask for?!   
I would tell you that even though I am SO excited for vacation, I am anxious about leaving Henry! I know, I know! People think I am crazy! My mom is going to be watching Henry for the week. She is in for it! I am sure they will have a blast! 😉 THANKS MOM!!!  (As I am writing this, he is curled up next to me, I can’t even stand the cuteness!)
I would tell you that I am disappointed in myself because I haven’t been exercising regularly like I should! My schedule has been a little hectic (Sounds like a typical excuse!).  I have squeezed it in when I can, but have felt guilty about it.  I guess I am only human…right?! Please tell me I am not the only one! 
I would ask you what books your currently reading.  I am planning on reading at the beach.  I have about 100000 books that are on my “to read” list.  Up first…The MatchMaker by Elin Hilderbrand I think it will be the perfect beach read! Also on my list, The Silent Wife by A.S.A Harrison.  Let me know if you have any suggestions to add to my list! 
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I cannot stop listening to Rather be by Clean Bandit, latch by Disclosure.  I would also tell you that I have been obsessed with Nora Jones station on IheartRadio! Random! It’s the best with a glass of red wine in hand.
And lastly, I would share with you my new favorite summer drink! There is a local bar that sells a drink called a cucumber peel….Cucumber vodka, lemon, and club soda, with a big cucumber slice in it.  Guys…its to die for! If I were to recreate it, I would add mint! 
 
I hope you all have a great weekend! Enjoy it! 
If we were having coffee…what would you have to share!
