Y'all, it's time we catch up. I keep thinking of things I want to blog about and then next thing I knew I haven't shared a new post. Teaching definitely has me on my toes this year, but thank God my year is going so so much better this year. I really am enjoying my students and what I'm teaching. What a relief!
Anyways, since it is time to catch up (because I looked back and saw I only blogged 5 times in October -- what?) I figured we better do it right...yep, over coffee.
So join me for a little virtual coffee date won't you?
If we were having coffee, I'd either be ordering an iced psl with skim milk and splenda or pulling my "fall essentials" mug out of the cabinets from my sweet mug swap partner Stephanie. Several of y'all asked about the mug on instagram and it can be found at The Scribble Studio.
If we were having coffee, I'd confess that I've been blaring Christmas music for the past couple days and convinced Thomas to pull out the Christmas decorations this weekend. Y'all. This makes me sohappy. I'm working on making my mantle a little different than last year, and can't wait to create something new. Aka: I'll be hitting up Target and Hobby Lobby after work today.
And if you're wondering the tree and outdoor decorations won't come until after Thanksgiving per the husband's request. But that I can deal with.
If we were having coffee, I'd ask you if you've also already started decorating for Christmas? And if you've started your Christmas shopping.
Because, (and I'm totally giddy about this) we are almost finish with our friends/family Christmas shopping. And yes, last night I started wrapping! I love knocking this out and not having to worry about this later. Not to mention it frees up time to enjoy all the hustle and bustle this time of year brings. And I'll still get to participate in more shopping for Thomas and through Black Friday (duh!).
If we were having coffee, I'd let you know that I've been watching so so many youtube videos lately. Mainly make up videos (here | here | and here) and have bought SO much makeup because of them. I'm thinking of doing another "buying lately" post soon, and including the makeup I've bought on recommendation and loved from those youtubers.
If we were having coffee, we'd talk about how I'm so thankful for election day tomorrow. Not only will all this political talk be over (or will it just be getting started?) BUT that means we don't have school Tuesday. Making today my only workday until Wednesday...holla! *insert raise the roof emoji*
If we were having coffee, I'd ask you what kinds of posts you are hoping to see on this year blog (because yes I'll be showing up, I've got lots to share) this holiday season. Recipes? Fashion? Gift Guides? Let me know.
Lastly,if we were having coffee, I'd realize that like usual I've chatted your ears off (which usually happens when I finally get to talk to adults rather than 11 year olds) and haven't asked you what's going on with you.
So please, catch me up below in the comments. What are you hoping to see on the blog this holiday season? Have you started decorating yet? What is your favorite store to get holiday decor from?
Make sure you're following me on snapchat and instagram because I'm always good about updating those with random daily happenings. Happy Monday loves.
