Coffee Talk #10

Hello, friends. It's PSL season! Throw confetti! Cheer! Drink up! Let's have a Coffee Talk post!

That's misleading. I don't actually ever order a Pumpkin Spice Latte (have you READ the nutrition information for one of those babies??) - but I do love the concept, and I do get pumpkin spice coffee from Wawa all fall. With a splash of vanilla creamer, it's just heavenly.

THAT is misleading, too. Don't be fooled. I'm not currently drinking coffee. Not hot, anyway, and not often. Hot coffee has been the singular item ruined for me by this pregnancy - I have found it nauseating from day one. Sigh. I've had an iced coffee or two over the summer, but a steaming cup of Joe just doesn't do the trick for me right now. I know. Sorry.

Can we do Coffee Talk even if I'm not having coffee (or wine, waahhhh)? Say we can. I'll make a nice cup of tea, and you can have all the coffee - just keep it away from me, please.

  • I have cinnamon rolls on the brain. Seriously. I can't really think about anything else. If you follow me on Pintrest, you'll see what I mean... I think I'm going to have to try my hand at making a batch this weekend. I already know that non-homemade ones are going to disappoint me, so I'm not going to bother with those. It's all or nothing, baby. Do you have a good recipe??
  • Horrible news: my beloved hairstylist of the last two years has switched salons and I don't know what to do. Her new salon is much further from my house (a 10 minute drive vs. a 35 minute drive) and I am pretty sure that's not going to be feasible with a newborn in the house. Cue panic. Good thing I just got my hair done a few weeks ago...
  • If I never saw another "news" story about the Duggars, it would be too goddamn soon. 
  • I am really excited about the return of fall TV. The season premieres seem to get later every year, though - there are some not happening until October this year! What's that all about? I need some Blacklist in my life.
  • Did you see the news about the discovery of a new human ancestor? Pretty amazing.
  • My house needs a serious de-clutter session. I think I'm going to try the game where you grab a trash bag, set a timer, and try to throw away 20 things this weekend - sounds easy enough, right? Sometimes it just feels like there is so much unnecessary stuff. Rawr.
  • I tried to call my OBGYN's office this morning to confirm my upcoming appointment, and instead got a message saying that the phone number was no longer in service. Awk-ward. They must have had some issues going on - luckily, when I tried again a little later, everything was fine. Talk about a bit of a panic moment, though...
  • I have been trying to hold out as long as possible, but I think a big pot of chili is going to be necessary this weekend. It's the first NFL Sunday, after all! Who's with me? Yum.
So there ya have it - all the things I'd dump on you if we could actually get together and hang out. What's on your mind?? What do you want to talk about? Hope you're having a great week!
