If We Were Having Coffee…

Posted October 12, 2016 by Ashley in If We Were Having Coffee / 0 Comments


About a month ago, Jamie from Perpetual Page Turner did a post called “If We Were Having Coffee” and I totally fell in love. A feature that is just like you’re sitting around having coffee with friends! Who wouldn’t love that?  I wanted to do this feature because sometimes I have a lot to say but it’s not necessarily book related, so here is my version of If We Were Having Coffee.

What I’m drinking: Gevalia Pumpkin Spice Latte


If We Were Having Coffee…I’d tell you I’m in a reading slump and it makes me sad! I have some amazing booking sitting on my TBR table (yes I have a TBR TABLE!) but I just can’t get in the mood. I am determined though to get back on track this month!

If We Were Having Coffee…I’d tell you Hurricane Matthew just came through town and the damage is devastating. My house is okay and our neighborhood fared well, we were lucky. My in-laws lost power for 2 days and several of my friends experienced severe water damaged to their homes. It’s all very sad.

If We Were Having Coffee…I’d tell you how much I love Fall! The weather starts cooling down, the leaves change color, sweaters and boots and soups and Halloween and UGH! I love it all. I really only burn candles in the Fall, is that weird?

If We Were Having Coffee…I’d tell you I’ve been crafting like crazy! I’ve recently gotten into painting mason jars and they will be featured FORTNIGHT OF FRIGHT! What!? That’s right, I signed up for Gals on the Same Page’s annual Halloween feature and I’ll be showing everyone how to make a few of my favorite seasonal crafts.

If We Were Having Coffee…I’d tell you how I’m planning on going to Y’ALL FEST for my second year in a row! This year I’m taking my 11-year-old book nerd daughter and she is just excited as me!

If We Were Having Coffee…I’d tell you what I was watching TV. On my DVR now is Gotham, Grey’s Anatomy, The Blacklist, New Girl, This is Us, The Voice, and Agents of Shield. I’ve been bingeing Gilmore Girls on Netflix and I can not wait for the reboot to start streaming (I may have taken that day off of work just so I can binge the whole thing).

If We Were Having Coffee…I’d tell you my daughter started playing the cello. Yes, you heard me right, the cello. She just started and she’s got a long way to go, that’s all I’m going to say about that. But I do love how excited she gets when she talks about it and when she practices. I just hope she still feels that way at the end of the year.


Well that’s it for now, what would you talk about if we were having coffee? Until next time…

Thanks for reading!-2
