If we were having coffee... Hopefully we would be at my new favorite coffee shop that we went to for the first time on Saturday, Solace & Fine Espresso. Our drinks were delicious, and a lot of their signature coffee drinks have punny names, which is my favorite. For example, I got the James Blonde, which was white chocolate, praline, and caramel, and Michael got The Chosen Juan which was jalapeno and white chocolate. And it's all local coffee, which is always a plus.
If we were having coffee... I would tell you about the crazy snow storm here. On Tuesday night it started snowing like crazy. By our measurement, we had about eight inches. A lot of you probably think that's nothing, but that's a ton for the PNW. For example, last winter it snowed all of once and we got a dusting, not even a measurable amount. This winter it has snowed five separate times, and I've had to work from home a total of seven days (two days one week, two days another, and Wednesday-Friday last week). This storm was big enough that it was even included in The Skimm, which basically made my life. And here are some snapshots I took on a Thursday evening walk.
If we were having coffee... I would tell you how much I love a good book deal. In the past week, I got the Kindle versions of The Butterfly Garden and What She Knew for $2 each and I found The Time Traveler's Wife for $2.99 at Goodwill.
If we were having coffee... I would explain how I've been missing reading blogs and replying to comments the past few days because work has been insane, and my free time has been spent reading and watching Stranger Things (because Michael finally agreed to start it on Friday night!). We finished it, and I loved it! A few observations: Nancy looks exactly like Emmy Rossum. Also, does anyone else have a major crush on Chief Hopper? Just me? Okay, moving on...
If we were having coffee... I might tell you about how Facebook ads crushed my dreams. This shirt was in my ads, and it was maybe the most 'me' shirt I've ever seen...annnnd it turns out it's girls' sizing. But on the plus side (or not, because things cost money...) I found about a billion other things I want for myself, like this shirt in "Rose all day" and "Espresso then prosecco," this top in the red stripes and blue stripes, this floral sweatshirt, and this dress.
If we were having coffee... I might mention my new obsession with getting myself a pair of navy blue leather Nike Cortez sneakers. I see so many women wearing black Nike athletic shoes with their everyday outfits and I love the look of it, but I can't wear Nikes because they're so narrow unless I wear men's. I don't really want to buy men's athletic shoes, but I really love the look of the Cortez, and they're cheaper than buying Nike workout shoes.
