Lets Talk.

I’m sure you have all seen by now the “lets meet for coffee” type of posts.
You know the ones where the blogger sits down at the computer, and acts like they are face to face with you over a coffee date.
I’ve always kinda liked these posts because shoot, I love meeting for coffee.
I love meeting for cocktails even more but that’s besides the point.
Anyhow, because I like reading these posts, I thought I may enjoy writing one as well.
So what do you say?
It’s time for a little one-on-one chat session.

For starters, since I have never met you before, the first 20 minutes of our conversation would most likely be centered around you. I prefer it this way. I kinda pride myself on asking people questions. Sometimes people get annoyed by this–which leads me to ask more questions on why they don’t like answering questions, but most of the time it works. Oh, and chances are good that I would compliment you on something. Compliments are the most exciting thing to give in my book. What a cute shirt that is, oh my gosh–your eyes are beautiful {yes I said this in a bar to a girl this weekend. Yes I was concerned she thought I batted for the other team}, love your hair, blah blah blah.

Okay phew, enough about you 😉

First thing I would talk about is this blog, because well–that’s how we know each other. I would tell you that I absolutely love writing it. I would also tell you that sometimes, as in recent times, I have felt somewhat overwhelmed by it. Working 40 hours a week plus trying to keep this baby up strong can be a challenge. Hypothetically speaking, I would love to work part-time at my “real” job and part-time at blogging. Realistically speaking, I don’t see that happening.

You would most likely ask me about my husband. I would tell you that our love is fun. He gets me. I get him. He is my best friend. He makes me laugh. He knows to laugh at me when I cry to get me to stop crying. Without him, I would be lost. Really I would.

From there the topic of children would get brought up. I would have to confess that watching my niece this past weekend for 24 hours straight, was one of the best 24 hours I have ever had. That experience gave me hope that I can handle being a mother. I am ready for the responsibility of a little creature. I want a sidekick–somebody to mold, teach, and experience life with in a different way than I ever have before.

You would probably ask me about my “real life friends”. I would tell you that the number of really close girlfriends I have is less than the number of fingers on one of my hands. I like it that way. These girls are my friends for life. Sure, I have a lot of acquaintances, but that is not what makes my soul excited. It is the real, loving, know they would do anything for you and vice versa relationships that I adore. All four of em’.

From there we would move on to much more serious topics of conversation.
Like social media 😉
I would tell you that I am almost 100% over Facebook. Yes, I still get on it and yes, I still do status updates. But it doesn’t excite me. I am addicted to Twitter. Addicted. Like wake up to let my dog out in the middle of the night and turn on my Ipad to check any new Tweets. It’s stupid really. But I love it. You know what I don’t love? The fact that Pinterest was blocked at my work place. Meaning, I hardly pin a darn thing anymore. Which reminds me..this coffee date needs to end soon so I can go on a pinning spree.

I would then realize that I have a ton more to talk about.
Like fashion, traveling, wine, music, and dance parties.
And because my allergies are kicking my butt, I wouldn’t feel like continuing this conversation much longer. However, I would love to get together again to discuss the above items and more.

Talk soon buttercups.
