Happy Thursday! For today’s What’s New With You link-up we’re going to go on a coffee date β˜• I’m actually probably going to drink tea. Coffee doesn’t taste good to me right now (SOB).

We’re switching up this coffee date & I’m going to tell you about things that have made me happy lately. And then I want you to do the same! πŸ˜€ Linking up with Kristen!

Dog Pictures
I have a pretty good relationship with the guys who work at one of our authorized dealers that we interact with weekly. Randomly, one of those guys started attaching pictures of his dog to work emails. Word got around at their store and now there are two of them that do it. I’m curious to see how out of hand this can get. But I crack up every time there’s a random dog picture on an official work email.

I have never in my life enjoyed flavored water. I don’t like the after taste or the lack of sweetness. But lately sweet things have just been TOO sweet. Enter spindrift. No caffeine, no added sugar, not too sweet, and no aftertaste. I got the blackberry flavor and I’m excited to try other ones soon! (The ingredients are carbonated water, blackberry juice, fresh lemon juice, and blackberry puree. NOTHING ELSE.)

Plane tickets!
If you’ve been around a while, you know that flying isn’t my favorite thing in the world. That said, one of my very best friends is moving to Tampa, FL this weekend and I ALREADY BOOKED TICKETS TO VISIT IN SEPTEMBER. K, myself, my other bff Kayla, and her boyfriend are all flying down to visit her and I can’t even wait!

Additional things include a massage this week, bff time tonight, grilling outside for dinner, and summer weddings (even though we just have one this year).

Tell me what’s got you feeling happy this week/month!

What's New With You

32 thoughts on “A Cup of Happiness (& Coffee)

  1. This is such a cute idea. Dog pictures have to be the happiest thing ever! (Apart from actual dogs yet get to stroke, of course).

    Right now I am just really happy to be able to shower in my flat – even though we are still waiting for the glass front of the shower so we’re currently actually showering in the bath!


    1. I really love that they’ve started sending pictures. It makes me laugh every time.

      Yay for showers at home! You’ll feel SO good when everything is done and cleaned up and normal again!


    1. I hated flavored water for so long but I don’t mind Spindrift πŸ™‚ I love that! Dogs at work are the best! I bring Enzo with me occasionally and the guys in the warehouse love him, lol!


  2. I love the idea of dog pictures being attached to work emails. It would definitely make work emails SO much better. Yay for having plane tickets already to visit your friend. And ooh a massage. That sounds so good right now. LOL



    1. It brightens my mood every time πŸ™‚ I don’t love flying but I love that we’re already ready to go see her! The massage was wonderful. I love getting massages!!


  3. I love that you already bought a plane ticket to see your friend! As someone who moves a lot, trust me, she will really appreciate it. I love when people come to visit me. I definitely want to check out Spindrift – I’ve never heard of it but I need to try to drink more water!


    1. It’s nice that flying to Tampa from here is MAYBE $100-150 round trip and usually nonstop. I love that and I will definitely take advantage- even with a little one in tow πŸ˜‰
      I’m TERRIBLE about drinking water. Spindrift makes it a little less boring. Haha!


  4. I LOATHEEEEE flying more than anything, but I’ll get on a plane for Disney – its all about motivation & priority πŸ˜‰
    I wish I could change my email picture at work to a dog – that’d be hilarious!

  5. Aw, I love the idea of adding random dog (or in my case cat) pics to emails. I can only imagine how much more enjoyable all email would be if people attached pictures of their pets. Oh no! Coffee is out??? That’s rough. Potato better be extra sweet to his/her Mama for such a huge sacrifice. πŸ˜€ It’s weird because I am absolutely terrified of heights but flying has never bothered me, which is good but I traveled extensively in one of my previous jobs.


    1. It cracks me up when I scroll down and see a dog picture πŸ™‚ I’m so sad about coffee. I’ve tried different flavors and add-ins… nothing tastes good or makes me feel good. Sigh. I’m sure it will be my life source once a human keeps me up all night. Hahahaha.
      I wish flying didn’t bother me. I think I’m getting a lot better, though.


  6. I freaking love that there’s a dog photo thing happening on work emails.

    I’m sad coffee isn’t doing it for you right now.

    I like spindrift. I also like Polar.


    1. The dog pictures make me smile every time.
      I would love to have the caffeine from the coffee- UGH. The taste just doesn’t appeal to me currently. Sigh. I’ll have to check out Polar!


  7. Ahh a massage sounds wonderful. I’ve never had a professional one but it’s on my bucket list for someday!


  8. I think more people in the world need to attach dog pictures to their work emails. Especially when it’s a super official, business email. It would make the world a happier place.


    1. I’m glad I’ve found something a little more exciting than plain water. Ha. I’m very sure coffee will come back in rotation soon. Hopefully, anyway. Haha!


  9. omg i love the dog pictures in the work emails. that’s hilarious. my out of town coworkers send me cat memes all the time and i think it’s funny because i don’t think they know i have cats? not like my in office coworkers know. so i must just come across as a cat lady lol. i need to try this spindrift thing. sorry coffee isn’t working for you, i don’t drink coffee but when i was pregnant, (hot) tea was my favourite thing to drink and my doctor told me to cut back and i was very not happy with that lol. i tried decaf and it was awful 😦


    1. That’s amazing. I think I must’ve talked about my dogs while on a business trip around these people because they’re from Texas so they have never seen my dogs. Hahaha! I am FB friends with one of them, though, so maybe that’s where he got the idea. Either way, it cracks me up.
      Coffee is out right now but I do like Early Grey. I can stomach the decaf when I have to, haha.


  10. YAY for a massage, ENJOY! I couldn’t drink coffee when I was pregnant. I got sick two mornings in a row after a few sips and it was one of the first things that turned my light bulb on to think- could I be pregnant? haha A big hooray for visiting friends too, I love doing that- more adventures, yes please! Enjoy your weekend!


    1. Massages are the best! I could definitely benefit from the caffeine but oh well. It doesn’t make me sick but it doesn’t taste good and my stomach isn’t very happy about it. Haha.


  11. I just bought plane tickets for August! R and I are going to Saint Louis to visit a friend. She’s too old to sit in my lap, so I had to buy her an actual adult ticket. It was weird!


    1. That’s crazy!! It’s so weird to have a bff now living states away but I love that I already have a ticket to see her AND she’ll be home for my shower AND she says she’s buying a ticket as soon as I’m in labor. Hahahaha!
