If you came over for coffee...

...I'd probably offer you tea as well. Because I love both, so maybe you do to? After making our hot beverages, we'd get comfy on the couches and also enjoy some fresh raspberry macarons I baked a couple days ago. We'd also laugh at the huge stuffed minion the Mr. won at the Rib Fest, it's living in front of my fireplace for the summer. :)

... We would chat about the weather, and how it's supposed to be summer, but we had a polar vortex week, last week, where it was cooler than normal. We would also discuss any location we would like to be in rather than "Chiberia" for the upcoming winter.

...Ginny would be up in your face trying to lick you square in the mouth. She would also keep nudging your hand with her nose until you pet her. No, you are not allowed to stop, according to Miss Spoiled Brat.

... I'd ask you how you were REALLY doing. Not the, "Oh, I'm fine" answer. I have been known to be a great listener from time to time and tend to be the one that everyone opens up to.

... I'd ask you if there is anything I could pray about for you. And we would probably discuss what bible study we were doing. I'd confess I'm not as diligent as I plan on being in my studies. In an ideal world, I'd have hours each morning to study and dive into the word, and hours at night, but it doesn't happen that way, at least not everyday. I would tell you that I am waiting on an acceptance letter from a Christian university where I plan on getting my Theology degree. I'd admit to you that I'm nervous because I haven't been to school in 14 years, and I'm hoping my study habits can resurface quickly!

...We would discuss jobs. I would ask how your job is going. You would ask me about mine. I would tell you that the blog keeps me busy, which is good. And that there is going to be a lot more recipes and healthy snacks that I have discovered. That may or may not interest you. I'd also say I'm sewing my fingers off to stock the Etsy shop! 

... We would probably put our coffee or tea in a to go cup and take Ginny out for a walk. You'd laugh at how she flips her lid over seeing a squirrel, and I'd tell you that God truly blessed me with a dog that is perfect for us and where we are in life. She's the bomb!

...We would discuss diet and exercise while walking.  Which is where I would tell you that my doctor has cracked down on me and put me on Lipitor due to my high cholesterol. I'd also tell you all about my "new life" with My Fitness Pal and changing my diet severely, and how I've already dropped a few pounds. Most likely, I would try my hardest to get you do participate with me so I can stay excited about this!

... The visit would be oh so short, and there would be future plans for coffee dates made.I'd ask you what can I pray about for you, and I'd tell you what I need prayers about.  Ginny wouldn't let you leave without some extra lovin', and you'd be on your way!

Today, I link up with the sweet Chantel from A Harvest of Blessing for the Jack of All Trades Link up. Just a place where you can come together to meet new bloggers and encourage one another!

And that's what would happen if you came over for coffee. So tell me, how are you really doing? Can I pray for you?


  1. I want that minion in your first picture! lol - I am obsessed with them! :)

  2. Ginny looks so comfy! :) ha!

    p.s. LOVE your new blog design!!

  3. What a great post! Love this. I so wish I could have coffee with other bloggers, but the nature of our business doesn't quite set that up well! Love the minion in the corner- our house has the same random stuffed animal but instead it is twilight sparkle from My Little Pony- ha! What is your etsy shop???

  4. Found you from the Jack of All Trades link up -- I'd love to come over for coffee! Sounds delightful. :)

  5. I wish we lived close enough to one another that I could come over for coffee/tea. I think that would be amazing! I am on My Fitness Pal also and would like to be "friends". My user name is Manders0808.
