I know itâ€™s Wednesday and normally I do my coffee dates on Saturdays, but I missed y’all and since I am up bright and early this morning, I thought I would pour myself a cup of Joe and chat. So pull up a comfy chair, warm blanket, big old mug of coffee and please join me.
If we were having coffee this morning, I would tell you how baby girl has been a pretty decent, but not perfect, sleeper.
All last week she slept from 8:30-5am. This week she’s slept ’till 2am. When she wakes up, I feed her and she goes right back downâ€¦but I donâ€™t. I have had a pretty rough time falling back asleep and when that happens my mind starts racing, I become super OCD and I want to clean and re-organize everything.
Which leads me to my next point, I seriously want to get rid of so many things and start OVER! Have you ever felt like you have so much clutter in your house and you donâ€™t know how to get rid of it? Well, I have more often than not. So whatâ€™s a girl to do at 2am but pin every dream house in sightâ€¦ this is not healthy! Then I get overwhelmed with other things, like how I need to organize my pictures on my computer and start working on Christmas gift lists. It turns into this nasty cycle of overwhelming thoughts, but then I take a deep breath in and PRAY!
If we were having coffee this morning, I would tell you that prayer is something I am working on.
Yes, I pray daily and I pray often, but I donâ€™t pray with others enough. I want to pray with my husband more. I want to pray with my friends more. I want to pray with my family more. Not because it makes me a holier â€œbetterâ€ person (because believe me I am not), but because I think when you pray with one another it brings you closer together and to God. I miss that.
If were were having coffee this morning, I would tell you that the Refresh Attire line is going great!
I am so blessed by all that have purchased shirts and canâ€™t wait to come out with more designs. You have one more week to put in you pre-orders.
If were having coffee this morning, I would tell you that I am getting pumped about this year’s HOLIDAY SHRED (sign ups start on FRIDAY November 1st).
So many great workouts, meals and such a fun community! This year, I am offering a way to be part of something bigger and I canâ€™t wait to share it with you all!
If were having coffee this morning, I would tell you that I am relived that my Triathlon training is over!
I loved it, but now I can focus on other things and not worry about getting in a swim, ride, run and strength training every week. I do want to do another one someday, but I think I will wait until RJ is one. I am planning on doing some running races soon, but those only require me to run as it’s a lot less stressful for me. 🙂
If we were having coffee this morning, I would tell you that I am getting super excited about the Holiday season with family.
This will be RJâ€™s first Christmas and I canâ€™t wait to make it special for her. The biggest challenge is not get wrapped up in the hustle and bustle. I am trying to think of ways to slow down and really enjoy the season. Any ideas?
If were were having coffee this morning, I would tell you that I have been busy in the kitchen with my Itâ€™s All Good 365 Challenge!
Last week I made Gwyneth’s Korean Tacos and Hubby loved them! This week I am going to make her Fig Millet Muffins and a Herbed Chicken recipe. I havenâ€™t been making 4 recipes a week like I planned, but I will take what I can get.
If we were having coffee this morning, I would tell you that you are beautiful!
Stop comparing yourself to others. Stop trying to be super women and just be YOU! (I’m preaching to myself here too.) I think so many times we try and look for the next best thing and forget that we are perfect just the way we are. Yes, we have growth areas, but God created us for a reason and for a purpose. Stop trying to be someone you are not and SMILE ’cause He loves you more than you could ever imagine with your imperfections and all.
