Happy Friday, beautifuls! After getting to know countless other bloggers through coffee and tea dates I decided to have one of my own. Sometimes I make the 30 minute drive north to get some Starbucks, but today we can meet down the street from my office at this quaint little cafe:
It’s Friday, so I’m at work, but I will dedicate my hour-long lunch break to you & we can rename it our little coffee break!
If we were taking a coffee break I would go on and on about “The West Wing”. This show ended in 2006 but K and I have recently started watching it on Netflix and I am obsessed. It’s such a fast paced, witty drama. I love it when a show has characters that I want to hangout with and work with. Plus, it has a very polished Rob Lowe, a very young Elizabeth Moss, and a very talented Allison Janney.
If we were taking a coffee break I would air my frustrations with my church to you. I don’t know how to sum it up here, but it’s one of those situations where change is necessary and everyone knows it… but no one is willing to change. There are less than 5 people under the age of 40 that regularly attend my church. It’s disheartening and frustrating and sad.
If we were taking a coffee break I would tell you a little about my novel. I have roughly 75 pages done and I’ve got the entire thing outlined. (FINALLY) I would ask you for your opinions and your advice. How do you go about the editing process?
I would definitely tell you about Tuesday night and how K and I were both home at 4pm so we could take the kids to their vet appointment. And then K didn’t go back to work and we cooked dinner together and built a fire and watched The West Wing and relaxed and had the best evening just being home without any obligations. It’s been a long time since I’ve had his attention all to myself at home!
If we were taking a coffee break I can’t help but think we’d look outside and see all the glorious snow. Ohio has finally given us a few inches and this little polar bear is so happy!
If we were sipping on some coffee I would tell you how I almost didn’t publish this post and how I doubted myself on this post. But then the day came and I published them and the blog world had such an amazing response. I really do love the encouragement that floats around Planet Blog 🙂
I hope that we would talk about Alan Rickman and what an amazing soul he was. I’m so sad that he’s left this world. I plan on watching “Love, Actually” this weekend and I would want to know if you’re going to sit down and watch any of his classics. (cough*Harry Potter*cough)
Lastly, if we were taking a coffee break I would leave you with a few fun blogs to visit this afternoon! What’s a Friday without a little blogger love??
- This week Lindsay talked about being a full time blogger and not being a full time blogger. It’s a wonderful read that encourages you to focus on what’s right for you.
- Ashten sings the song of my teammate-loving heart in this post about relationships and advice. I’ve never seen “The Guardian”, but I think I know exactly where she’s coming from!
- Staying the course with relationships, I love Chelsea’s post about being ready to take on life’s new adventures! She’s going to be such a great mom- I hope her baby boy arrives this weekend!
And now I have to get back to work! This weekend is going to be a fun one- Elliot’s turning ONE on Monday (holy freakin’ cow) and we’re celebrating with a big party on Sunday!
What would you share with me during our little coffee break? What do you have planned this weekend?
