If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you may have noticed that I very rarely share information about my personal, day-to-day life. Most of my blog posts are focused on a specific topic. I do that on purpose because one, my life isn’t very interesting to write about and two, I personally prefer reading this type of blog compared to blogs that post daily recaps.
Sometimes, though, I have random tidbits I want to share with you that don’t really fit in with any of my scheduled posts. So I’m introducing a new series on the blog called Coffee Chat where I share things I would tell you about if we were on a coffee date.
So grab a cup of coffee (or your drink of choice) and let’s talk! I hope you’ll chat back with me in the comments so it’s like we’re really hanging out 🙂
Okay, first things first, please go watch this video and tell me you find it as funny as I do! I woke Chase up the first time I watched it because I was laughing so hard. It’s hard to pick a favorite part. Maybe when he’s going through the different types of bread? It’s hilarious to watch him poke fun at fad diets but also kind of scary because there are people who actually believe those things.
I finally caved this week and bought myself some clothes that fit. Since I stay at home with Chase and we’re trying to save money, I hadn’t bought any post pregnancy clothes, instead relying on maternity leggings and Ryan’s race T-shirts to get me through this stage. However after having a mini-breakdown last weekend that we had people coming over and I didn’t have anything semi-cute to wear, I decided it was worth spending the money. Fortunately, we received Kohl’s gift cards for Christmas, so I used those to treat myself to a pair of jeans, sweater, and these super soft, flattering shirts. It’s amazing how much better I feel now when seeing people or leaving the house. And yes, Chase has one sock on in the picture. Real life here.
Any other This Is Us fans? I binged the show the first few weeks after Chase was born and am so excited that new episodes are on. Thoughts on Tuesday’s episode? I just want to know how Jack died already!
Also, I need a new Netflix or On Demand show to binge. Chase and I spend a lot of time nursing and cuddling while he’s asleep. I love it but I still need entertained while he’s snoozing. Any suggestions?
I start school again on the 22nd and I’m legitimately concerned that I might forget. Days don’t seem to matter as much when you’re hibernating at home with a new baby and it would be really easy to miss the start date. I’m eager to continue working on my degree but can’t say I’m excited to have to focus on something other than Chase.
Check this out-Jazzercise is finally getting recognized as a current workout! In the seven years that I’ve been a part of Jazzercise, I’ve heard so many 80’s and leg warmer jokes; sometimes I’ll say I’m a fitness instructor instead of a Jazzercise instructor because I don’t feel like following up with “it’s actually a great workout!” This makes me so happy to see it listed with current, popular workouts like Pure Barre and BeachBody. Have I convinced you to try a class yet? You can find one near you here. Let me know if you love it!
I think that’s all I have for this week. Tell me something from your week below! And because it’s a coffee date, I have to ask
What’s your favorite coffee drink? –At home, I drink coffee with a splash of whole milk and cinnamon. At a coffee shop, I like to treat myself to a vanilla latte.
