Coffee Chat // May

Hey there lovelies! Welp, it’s been a long May and I’m so happy that June is right around the corner (even though that means this year is passing by at lightning speed). So I thought I’d pop in and chat with you all about what’s been happening during my little unplanned hiatus.

So grab a cup of your beverage of choice, and let’s get to it!

If we were having coffee

…..I’d tell you that two months of solo parenting has exhausted me. And two months isn’t even very long in the grand scheme of things! This period in my parenting journey has taught me so many things and it has given me a whole new respect for all the moms and dads who keep the kiddos in line while their spouse is away.

…..I’d blurt out excitedly that Zach will be coming home sometime this week. I might also break out into a happy dance.

…..I’d ask you about the books you’re currently reading. So far this month, I’ve read The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith (aka JK Rowling) and The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty. Both were really good but a little heavy. Any suggestions for a fun beach read?

…..I’d tell you that Baby E has started to crawl! Yep, I’m that blogger who can’t get through a post without telling you about the latest and greatest thing her baby is doing. Aaaaaand I’m not even ashamed.

…..I’d ask you about your Instagram strategy. Instagram is probably my favorite social media platform but, as hard as I try to grow, I’ve hit a stalemate with follower growth. Any tips and tricks would be so appreciated. (And, in case you aren’t following me on there yet–shameless plug–I’ma just leave my link right here.)

…..I’d tell you that Jillian Michaels has been kicking my butt. Forty-five minutes of her Shed & Shred program every day is definitely no picnic but a girl has to do what a girl has to do.

Also Mindy Kaling is my spirit animal.

…..I wouldn’t be able to stop talking about our upcoming Disney trip. I’M SO EXCITED, YOU GUYS!! Thanks to our lovely Disney travel genius Alicia, all of the details of our stay at Disney World are taken care of and I just can’t stop looking over everything and thinking about how much fun we’ll have. #obsessed

…..I’d ask you what you’ve been doing this past month. Because having coffee together is all about catching up!

It’s Your Turn!

Spill it! What have you been up to in May?

    I hate parenting alone. It does get easier though the older they get. When are you going to Disney? We’re going this summer too!

    • We’re headed to Disney for the 4th–we’ll be there July 1st through the 5th. Hopefully the heat and the crowds won’t do us in! 🙂

        We’ll be there then too!

  • I’m so glad he’s heading home! You are a rockstar for solo parenting for two months.
    I would love to learn any Instagram tips too! I just made an Instagram for my blog and I have no idea what I am doing with it!!
