Grab a cup of coffee or tea and let’s sit down and have a chat. We’re definitely overdue for one!
If we were having coffee today… I’d probably begin our chat by excitedly talking about my two upcoming trips in November. This year hasn’t been much of a traveling year for me as I’ve only had one vacation, and that was just a four-day cruise to Cozumel. But it’s all good because November will be a great month of travel and trips, between my girls weekend in The Villages and my birthday cruise to Grand Cayman and Jamaica. I’m counting down the days for both!
If we were having coffee today… I might mention that I joined the Play! by Sephora beauty subscription box to test out some new beauty products. I’ve never been into beauty subscription boxes, mostly because clutter annoys me and I don’t want to have dozens and dozens of samples lying around my home, but the Sephora box intrigued me because I figured I’d get some really good brands to try out and it is just $10 per month. I got my first box last weekend and everything in my box is something I want to try out! I think my favorite item is the Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick. The color that came in my box is a bit too bold for everyday wear (at least for me, who prefers a natural face), but I love that it stays on all day and hydrates my lips. Definitely a product I will buy in the future.
If we were having coffee today… I’d probably bring up the fact that I’ll be starting my third book club in November. Eeks! I’m not sure how I’ll keep up with all these books I need to read (on top of all the book I want to read!). This third book club is with some of my coworkers and I think it will be a really interesting time. We’re all so different in our reading tastes, so we all nominated a book and then voted on it. (I nominated In The Country We Love, but it didn’t win. Womp.)
If we were having coffee today… I’d breathe a big sigh of relief as I told you how I paid off my credit card after using it a ton in August/September as I prepared for my move. I’m really happy it only had a balance for one month and now it’s back to being my emergency card, where it will stay until I need it. Three cheers for getting lots of freelance work over the past three months that has helped me to get that paid off quickly.
If we were having coffee today… we might talk about Halloween and I’d admit that I don’t have a costume idea for this year. Halloween has never been my favorite holiday and I only recently started dressing up because most people do at my work, so I don’t want to be the lame one that doesn’t dress up. I usually go as something punny, like the year I went as a “deviled egg.” Maybe I’ll be boring this year and go as a cat. Meow?
If we were having coffee today… I’d talk about how I haven’t cooked much since I moved into my new apartment. In fact, I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve cooked an actual meal! This is partly due to being single and accepting invites out to eat whenever a friend asks me and partly due to being so busy with freelancing that I just haven’t had time to cook dinner for myself because all of my free time is devoted to my side biz. And also, I don’t really like to cook so there have been many cereal-for-dinner nights. Oof.
Now your turn! What would you tell me if we were having a coffee date?
