Coffee Date, Life

Coffee Date

Hey there friends! I’m so glad we finally made it to Friday because it’s time for our Coffee Date! I recently discovered the amazingness that is the Iced Americano. Seriously, it’s so good.


I recreated it at home. We have a Starbucks Verismo (yes, its right next to our Keurig #coffeeloverproblems) All I did was brewed up one of the Espresso pods. added the same amount of water, a dash of coconut milk creamer, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. So yummy. If we were having coffee today this is definitely what I’d be drinking…. What would you be drinking?

If we were having coffee I would tell you this week has been crazy. I know I always say that, don’t I? Things with the “day job” got a little crazier than usual which added some stress. I would tell you I’m just ready for the weekend. And as much as I thought this whirlwind trip to Texas for a few days next week was bad timing, I think it’s actually kind of perfect. I just need a breather, just a quick one. I would tell you I’m mostly excited to be staying at a hotel… you know, where they clean and make beds for you. Heaven. I have a lot of people ask how I do it all, and the truth is I don’t… I have to pick and choose what to do. Housework usually comes last on the list.

If we were having coffee today I would tell you that I have been thinking about trusting God a lot lately. Mostly when it comes to dreams and goals. Like I feel like He makes us with these passions and desires and the ability to see beyond what we currently have… I always talk about dreaming big, but sometimes I wonder if we hold so tightly to those dreams and goals that we forget about the one who created those dreams in us. I have just been stuck in this thought of what else can we do to make this work? And then I feel like I’m trying too hard to make it happen. On the other side of it I don’t want to feel like I’m just sitting there waiting for things to happen to me. Dang balance, I can’t seem to find it in any area! ha. It reminds me of this song I used to listen to all the time…

If we were having coffee, I would probably make some awkward joke to change the subject after getting a little deeper into my soul than I sometimes allow people. Humor is my way of dealing with everything. After the laughter subsides I’d thank you for being so encouraging and willing to listen to my random rants. Then I’d suggest we take the rest of our coffee to go and hit up some stores… I’m in a shopping mood!

If we were having coffee, what would you tell me?
Do you like to shop?

  1. I know what you mean about finding balance between letting God get you somewhere and figuring out what you need to do yourself! I am so guilty of getting that goal planted and then, instead of waiting on Him (me and patience are like oil and water!), I try to take things into my own hands 99.9% of the time. I’ve had to learn a few tough lessons over the years with that.

    I think you probably know this, but rest assured He really WILL reveal everything to you, in His timing of course. Its hard to wait. I know. But it will come.

    This totally makes me want another cup of coffee! But I already had my (giant mug) this morning. 🙂
