let's meet for coffee

I love this idea of virtually meeting for a coffee date with you all, so we can get better acquainted. After reading Krysten and Brittany's recently, I thought now would be a good time to get a few things off my mind.

If we met for coffee, I would tell you that going to Regina, Saskatchewan for my cousin's wedding was so great. Not only because I got to stand up for my cousin on her wedding day, but because I got to see a lot of family that I haven't seen in a very long time or at all since I was born. I soaked up every minute I got with them.

If we met for coffee, I would also tell you that even though I was one of the maids of honor in my cousin's wedding (she had two), that we're not as close as we were when I got married five years ago. We had a minor hiccup in our relationship not too long ago, and I don't think we've ever talked about it again. Although we both know that we love each other, I'm afraid that the small detail we overlook is the elephant in the room. Having said that, I still feel like she's my female soul mate.

If we met for coffee, I'd let you know that I could sleep for 48 hours straight and I might still feel tired. This whirlwind weekend combined with our flight home being delayed two hours, causing us to get back to Toronto and home after 3am might do just that. 

If we met for coffee, I'd tell you that although in the scheme of things, I am very much happy with my mom body, I do still have moments where I wonder what the heck I'm doing. I have gained a bit of weight since scaling back on breastfeeding and suddenly realized this past weekend that I'm not entirely where I want to be (and maybe slightly in denial/oblivious). Luckily this is such a minor change, but one now that I'm fully aware of makes me feel a tiny bit insecure.

If we met for coffee, I would let you know about the documentary we watched last night. It's called, Artifact, and focuses on the harsh truths of the modern music business that Jared Leto and his band 30 Seconds to Mars endured as they were sued for 30 million dollars.



If we met for coffee, I'd let you know that I'm making these cookies today (chocolate chip and sea salt). Not being able to eat the cake and cupcakes at the wedding made me want desserts very badly. Would it be bad if I made these along with cupcakes? (I know, right. You know why I've gained some weight.)

If we met for coffee, I'd tell you that my blog design no longer matches my style anymore. It actually makes me want to blog less until I figure out what the heck I can do to it to make it more "me." Maybe I'll never know, or maybe some stroke of genius will come over me. Let's see which comes first.

Now let's hear… what would you say to ME if we met for coffee?
