I’m starting a new little weekly post on here–a coffee date of sorts. I’ve seen it around the blogosphere and thought it was a sweet idea. What would you share with me if we were on a coffee date?
If we were on a coffee date, I’d first have to order an iced tea instead of coffee. Although I have been drinking lots of decaf White Mochas at some of our fave coffee shops, Iced tea has sounded amazing. This is Crystal Light Peach Iced Tea–kind of addicting.
I’d also share with you that if I ever think of leaving our Chico community and friends here, it brings me to tears. I feel very, very fortunate for the people in my life. One of the reasons that Travis and I decided to buy a house and stay in Chico is because we couldn’t imagine leaving the friends.
Some friends came over last night for dinner and they brought us this blue hydrangea–blue for our little boy on the way. Very thoughtful.
If we were on a coffee date, I’d share with you just how thankful I am for my husband. Truly, I’d tell you that. I’ve been working about 45 hours/wk the past few weeks plus shooting Weddings and Portraits. I’ve come home to dishes done and groceries shopped for.
I’d also share with you that I am beyond excited for my sister’s wedding weekend coming up. Travis isn’t able to get the time off of work so I get some girl time–manicures, lunch with the girls, and all of the wedding excitement. I miss my mom and sisters a lot. I can’t wait for them to feel little baby boy kick, too!
What is your relationship like with your siblings? I have 4 sisters and it has been a roller coaster of ups and downs in our relationships. My twin sister and I were attached at the hip growing up, until about high school. After those years of not getting along, we get along just fine now. I miss her and think she is such a beautiful woman. I tried to convince her to move to Chico:)
My older sister and I never got along growing up–around my college years, we started to be able to relate better to each other instead of ignore each other’s wants. She is really smart and a great shopper–I look up to her in many ways.:)
My two younger sisters and I have gotten along well. I used to carry my younger sister from her bed to mine because I got scared at night. She was the baby in the family for a long time. When my youngest sister came along when I was 12, I treated her like my own baby. I remember running home from the school bus just to cuddle her as a newborn. I will be very sad when she doesn’t run into my arms anymore when I visit. I’m going to pretend she will do that even when she is 16. Hmmm…
That was kind of a tangent about my sisters but I can talk for a long time about them–so maybe this coffee date went a little longer than the usual one.
What would you tell me if we were on a coffee date?
Maybe at the end of this coffee date, we’d watch Matilda together–as that is what I have on in the background while I clean up and finish some Wedding crafts. I love that movie.
Thanks for the coffee date–until next week…
