If We Were Having a Coffee Date: Friday Edition

Can we just post up all the praise-hands emojis right now because it is FRIDAY!? AND it is a three-day weekend? This calls for unlimited salsa dancing emojis as well. (and maybe some chips and salsa too) You feelin' me?!

And now, let's chat over a cup of coffee. (or two)

If we were having coffee right now.....

I'd start off with a pumpkin spice latte because THEY'RE BACK Y'ALL. And I'm basically basic. Today I received this little gem in my inbox from Starbucks....

....Yes. That is a Pumpkin Spice Latte fan pass to get an early PSL. And if you visit this website right here, you can get yourself one too.

&I'm not going to lie...I almost cried tears of joy upon receiving it. (I'm not sure if I should be embarrassed about this or not?) Bring on the pumpkin everything. Bring on the fuzzy scarves. Bring on the fall. Bring on the football, which would bring me to...

If we were having coffee right now, we'd probably discuss the dawg victory that's about to happen this Saturday at noon between the hedges & I'd show you this little throwback from game day last year:


If we were having coffee right now, I'd ask you about your Labor Day plans. & tell you I plan on catching up on school work, tidying the house a bit, and we're thinking of doing some hiking and picnic-ing, and some North Point service attending since there's an extra labor-free day this weekend.

I'd also tell you I'm going to make my favorite, favorite salad this weekend using Blue Diamond's new blueberry almonds.

(which truly are wonderful. you need a bag or two of these in your life)

-chicken apple sausage
-Blue Diamond Blueberry Almonds
=best salad. try it. make it. love it. 

I will also be finishing my new favorite book-love this weekend, For the Love by Jen Hatmaker.

Do y'all remember when we did the Seven Experiment by Jen Hatmaker a little over a year ago? (wow, does time fly!!) Well Jen is back and her new book is out and it is great. She is one of the most hilarious authors and I don't think I've ever laughed so hard while reading.

If we were having coffee right now, I'd tell you I'm not usually a ranter, but I just have to throw this one out there! There has been much negative chat and discussion over those who love social media lately. I just have to say I AM a social media lover. I love instagram. I love facebook. I love snapchat. I take social media classes at school. I read books about the effects of social media on products and people and businesses. (nerd alert for real) I love seeing people post what they are passionate about. and I'm inspired by those who are willing to step out of their comfort zones and share their talents with the world. I know social media has its bad too, but friends, social media lovers are not all bad people! Okay, rant over.

If we were having coffee right now, I'd  tell you about this article about this sheep that I saw this morning on my newsfeed and I laughed out loud. #sweaterweather

 that poor sheep!

And if we were having coffee right now, I'd conclude with let's get another Pumpkin Spice Latte REAL soon and a Go Dawgs.

Happy weekend, friends!!

*Blue Diamond sent me the almonds to try, but I did not receive compensation for this post. All opinions are my own and I wouldn't share a product I didn't love.
