Coffee Date

I thought I’d take a break from my vacation recaps to talk to you about life in general. I love the coffee date posts that I’ve seen around the blog world lately, and I thought that it’d be fun to have a virtual coffee date this morning. Grab a cup of coffee, juice, tea, or chocolate milk, if you’d like ;) , and get comfy!

If we were having coffee this morning, I would admit that I worked out more on vacation than I have since I’ve been home. It’s kind of embarrassing, really, because I’m still on spring break and have no excuses, but I’ve had nearly no energy. I’m hoping that it’s normal to still feel jet lagged three days after getting home from a trip three time zones away?

If we were having coffee this morning, I would tell you that I am loving Rachel Bertsche’s book, MWF Seeking BFF. I plan on doing a full review when I finish the book, but let’s just say that I feel like I was destined to read this book at this time. In the (nonfiction) book, Rachel spends one year going on 52 friend dates, with the goal of making a new best friend in Chicago. Making friends in your 20s is not nearly as easy as making friends in elementary school, and Rachel shares the stories of her fun, funny, and sometimes awkward friend dates. I highly recommend the book, especially if you’re a 20-something in a new stage of life!

If we were having coffee this morning, I would tell you that I’d like to be friends with Mindy Kaling. I read her book, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns), while in Arizona, and I have a new respect for her as an actress and a comedian. She is not the ditzy girl who she portrays in The Office (but with that being said, Kelly Kapoor is still one of my favorite characters).

If we were having coffee this morning, I would tell you that the house hunting process is draining. We’re praying that we feel confident enough to put in an offer on one soon. Apartment living is expensive, and we do not want to extend our lease.

If we were having coffee this morning, I would tell you that I want this weekend to go by slowly. I am not ready to go back to work — I have to remind myself that there are only eight weeks left in the school year.

What would you tell me?

    I love this! I would tell you as a newlywed that just closed on her first house two weeks ago, don’t be afraid! Trust your gut and go with the home you feel comfortable in, it is meant to me it will work out in the end. :)

  2. This weekend is the end of our spring break too and it could not go slow enough…I just keep reminding myself of the countdown too–just 7 weeks left!
    Hope you have a wonderful, Friday! It was fun reading your vacation recaps–makes me want to go to Arizona for our next vacation!

  3. I liked this Coffe Date post, pretty cute idea. That book by Rachel Bertsche definitely sounds like something that I would enjoy! I’m sorry you guys are feeling drained by the house hunting. It’ll happen for you guys soon I’m sure! :) I hope you have a great Friday and nice slow weekend!

  4. Omg I loved MWF Seeking BFF, I think it actually helped me make better friends here in Chicago!

    Such a cute idea for a post! I would tell you that I am sooo happy it is Friday and tell you about the new coffee recipe (kinda an oxymoron!) I posted on my blog this am. Coffee has been the only thing getting me through this crazy week.

    Also, I’ve heard a lot of great things about that book….can’t wait to hear your review!

  6. I would tell you that I cannot STAND house hunting either. My husband is SO into it but I am SO OVER it. :(

    P.s. Coffee dates are THE best.

  7. MWF Seeking BFF is one of my all-time favorite books! I seriously LOVED it. I think it is so relevant to our age group and I only wish more people would read it so that they’d know they aren’t the only ones looking for friends – you know? I think it’s easy to feel like the only one who doesn’t have friends or wish that you had more but, really, so many people feel like this – we just need to embrace each other and be more open! Ah – great book :) Can’t wait to read your review. Also, I really liked Mindy Kaling’s book. She’s so hysterical and The Mindy Project is one show I never miss (which is saying something since I have to go online to watch it – no TV!)

      I agree! I watched The Mindy Project last night and I loved it — I’m going to start recording it so I don’t miss it!

  8. I would tell you that I’m ready for this baby to be born haha. ;)

    What a great post; thanks for sharing! I’d tell you that estate sales in mansions are SUPER fun to go to.. Let’s just say I had a rockin’ morning, but my wallet and I are now totally exhasuted ;) Have a lovely weekend!

  10. I hope you get some rest this weekend!

    Have fun house hunting! My realtor told me–you will know it’s “your house” the minute you walk in the door– and that is so true. We searched forever and none of them were quite right. Then one day…5 steps into the front door and I was like, Oh yeah this is it!

  12. I agree! It’s harder to make new friends when you’re out of college!
