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.
