Coffee Talk

Pretty Stack of Magazines and Coffee

Hello Thursday! & Hello to another Coffee Talk. Let's get to it!*

FEELING: Oh So Tired! I feel like I am running on zero ounces of energy, which I am. I don't mean to complain, but I really am just not use to this whole go-go-go thing. I am sure it will get easier over the next couple weeks, but man is it draining. 

THINKING ABOUT: Last week, my best friend Holly's sister in law's husband  passed away in a snowmobiling accident. His new wife, Tyler is 5 months pregnant with their little boy. My heart has been in absolute shambles since I heard the news. More details here. But really this tragedy has really put things into perspective for me - you really have no clue when someone you love dearly won't be there to give you that bear hug when you need it, that laugh when all you have is tears or that i love you when you don't love yourself. Tell someone you love them today!

LISTENING TO: I haven't talked to my sweet mom in a couple days & I am missing her. I think I will give her a call tonight to catch up on life .... & maybe convince her to come visit me :)

WATCHING: Yesterday before the work day started my co-worker & I watched this hilarious video, that I am sure you all have seen or heard of. It was a great start to the work day. & now I can't stop saying "you so preeeeetttyyyy." 

EATING: Gogurt, coffee and microwavable lunches. It really isn't healthy, but it get's the job done. Next week, real food will slowly be added into my diet. ha! If you wish you share any easy recipes for lunch please do... I am all ears!

READING: I love reading Matchbook Magazine & if you haven't heard the news, but this is their last issue. Sad Face.

THANKFUL FOR: My new job. Seriously I can't say it enough. I am so blessed. 

LOVING: DC has finally made a turn for the best & Spring weather has arrived. Now I can't say that it is here to stay, but this weeks weather has been amazing to say the least. You don't have to wear a down parka, 2 sweatshirts, tights + pants, a hat + scarf just to keep warm .. maybe I am exaggerating a tad bit, but I love this weather. Bring on Spring!

Now tell me, how has your week been! Share the details! xo

Hello Thursday! & Hello to another Coffee Talk. Let's get to it!*

FEELING: Wait, it's Thursday already? ... Yeah, I am that tired. As exhausted as I feel, yesterday I had to be at work extra early & at a different location then I was at the first two days, so it was like having a 2nd first day of work.. if that even makes sense. But as I was walking to work I just got this overwhelming feeling of JOY .. yes JOY with happy tears! I couldn't believe that I landed my dream job in DC .. FINALLY. It felt like it took forever to get to where I am at, but I am so unbelievably blessed. & I plan to keep on smiling. 

THINKING ABOUT: All I wanna do is take a nap. You don't realize how much you will miss taking a nap whenever you please, until you are big kid & can't just throw on your pjs & lounge on the couch at 1PM in the middle of the afternoon. Tell me why they don't offer nap time as an adult?

LISTENING TO: I am still loving my January + February Playlist. They are just sooo good. & March's Playlist is in the works. Stay Tuned!

WATCHING: If you don't know yet, but House of Cards Season 3 went live on Netflix last Friday & N + I binged watched 10/13 episodes over the weekend & plan on finishing the rest this week. Can we say ... TV Depression? ... I don't understand why we do this to ourselves? On another note, I can't get enough of Claire & her let's-go-and-dominate-the-world self. I wish I had that confidence while rocking a pixie cut! I am sad that we have to wait an entire year for another season ... if there is one. But I don't want to even think that there won't be one because that would cause serious depression.

EATING: Currently, its 11 PM at night & I am starving. N + I are trying to decide what we want to snack on ... TBD.

READING: Since starting work on Monday I have been reading article and article on different diseases, treatments & medications. My brain is full of mush & I am surprised I am even putting this post together.. I deserve a reese's easter egg!

THANKFUL FOR: I forgot what is feels like to have to do something other then sit on your butt all day long & watch PLL. ha! But as much walking as I have done in the past 72 hours since I metro to & from work, I have learned to truly appreciate a good pair of slippers. When I walk in the wrong door it's like heaven when I slip them on. Heaven I tell you.

LOVING: Monday was the first day of my new job & I was nervous as all get out. I could barely sleep the night before & had the biggest knots in my stomach all day. Also, my feet hurt really bad. Anyways, when I got home from work I wanted to be all domesticated (remember when I talked about cooking dinner?) so I decided to cooke some homemade spaghetti so that when N got home from work he would have something to eat. I was a grouch petunia from having to cook, which is probably because I didn't get a lunch break and all I had was a cheese stick allll day. & then my night + shining armor walked in the front door with gorgeous white + pink tulips. Fresh flowers have a way of brightening up any day of the week & any mood of mine. & they are currently sitting pretty in my new green enamel vase. I love him.

*Sorry for all the job talk. I am just super duper happy!

Coffee Talk

Hello Thursday! & Hello to another Coffee Talk. Let's get to it!

FEELING: Pop the champagne ... THIS girl got a big girl job! That's right! The big news is out (I promise I would tell ya'll!). Over the last several months I have had several job interviews, some for full time positions & some temporary positions. I was willing to do whatever it took to get a job, even if it wasn't one that I saw myself doing for long term. The one thing they don't tell you when you start looking for a job as a new grad, that a lot of people DON'T want to hire a new grad. So last week, when I followed up with a job opportunity & received a phone call back to come in for an interview I was pretty jazzed. Come to find out they loved what I have to offer & I am currently employed. Woopdedoodaday! I seriously couldn't be more excited... nervous... anxious... overwhelmed... happy all at the same time to start my new position at a Family Practice/Urgent Care office here in the city. Here's to big girl things!

THINKING ABOUT: I feel like such a slacker when it comes to being motivated. I am not sure what has gotten into me. Maybe it is the weather, but I haven't worked out in over a month. I feel icky! I even bought new sneakers to help kick my butt into gear, but yeah about that... I have only worn them around the house. So, I got this bright idea that I am going to join a gym this weekend. Now if only I don't become anymore unmotivated then I already am. Fingers crossed!

LISTENING TO: As we whine down the month, I have been joyously putting together a fun February playlist together for you. There are a lot of new favorites, so be sure to stop back by the blog tomorrow to listen to the new tunes.

WATCHING: If you don't know, which I am not sure if I have divulged this information on the blog yet. N is a avid bowler ... meaning he is on a league or two year round. & he bowls at Nationals almost every year. He's a big deal! Well when we started dating, I attended ALL of his bowling matches ... even it was on a Friday night. Yeah, I know LAME! ha (i kid!). Once I started grad school I wasn't able to attend them anymore & then when I was studying for my boards I used the nights that he bowled to have the house quiet an all to myself & then bowling nights have quickly become my girls night out. Well, the last two nights I went & watched N bowl. It actually is pretty relaxing & it is time that I can spend with him while he enjoys something he loves. It brought back so many memories & I plan on attending bowling nights more often.

EATING: I have always envied my mothers talent in the kitchen & wonder if I will ever develop a knack for rounding up tasty meals up like she does on the fly. With starting a big girl job & all, I feel that it is time to start meal planning, especially since I can't afford to eat out everyday. I have no clue where to start or how to plan but I am going to give it all I got. If you have any tips on meal planning please share them with me. I need all the help I can get. 

READING: Finding me time is so critical to my health. Seriously y'all, if I don't get me time during the week I am grouch petunia. This week I have managed to catch up on all my glossies & even read one or two a second time! I love how much inspiration they give me for putting together content for this blog. What are some of your favorite glossies?

THANKFUL FOR: I never knew how much I could love a puppy, but Tinsley is the creme of the crop. Her puppy snuggles are one of a kind & I can only imagine how much amazing baby snuggles are (but we won't go that far!).

LOVING: There are so many amazing beauty products that have recently launched but this eyeshadow palette is by far way more incredible in person then I ever thought possible. Def. worth picking up at Sephora.
