Coffee Date Friday

Coffee Date Friday {#16}

TGIF!  Yes, we shouldn’t spend 1/7 of our life dreading Monday, but TGIF just has a better ring to it than TGIM.  Am I right or am I right?

Come join me for a coffee date!

If we were having coffee this morning, I would tell you that trial prep is great for hours and keeping busy, but boy is it exhausting!  I haven’t had the energy to do much of anything in the evenings after the kids go to bed because my brain is just so fried.  That made it a great time to catch up on the first two episodes of Game of Thrones. And how awesome was that second episode?!?  I won’t spoil it for anyone who hasn’t seen it yet 🙂

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I’ve been planning my packing for an upcoming trip to visit family (and for a wedding!) and realized that about 90% of what I am taking with me is handmade!  The only reason it’s not 100% handmade is because I don’t own any handmade shorts or pants.  I guess I’d better fix that this summer!

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I am really, really looking forward to getting out of town, but also finding the prospect of taking our whole show on the road (or a plane) to be really, really daunting.  I haven’t been out of the KC metro area (other than down to southeast Kansas for work, which doesn’t count) since last July, and I really need to get the heck out of Dodge!  The prospect of having to work on trial prep while I’m gone isn’t particularly attractive either, but at least my work remote access is set up pretty well.

And on that same note, if we were having coffee this morning, I’d tell you that I am now frantically trying to finish up my dress for the wedding before we leave!  Both of the kids’ outfits are finished, but I kind of fizzled out after putting the finishing touches on their clothes.  J and N are both in the wedding, so their outfits obviously took top priority.  However, I don’t think I have a dressy outfit that fits and would allow me to nurse, so I’m really hoping I can get this dress finished!  And besides, it’s gonna be awesome — lace and silk and a yummy color.  Assuming that it all comes together as planned, that is 🙂

I hope everyone has a beautiful, productive weekend!

If we were having coffee, what would you tell me?

Linking up with Diary of an Addict for Coffee Date Friday.

  1. good luck getting your dress done! i don’t know how you find the energy with such a young one, plus working outside the home. and, plane travel with kids is HARD. we flew with all four kiddos exactly one time, and i really don’t look forward to doing it again. hope you have a great easter weekend!

    1. Thank you! I’m really skeptical that I’m going to be able to finish it. I think I might buy a dress as a backup just so I’m sure to have something dressy enough that fits. And there’s still so. much. packing to do! This will be our first time flying with all 3 kids. The last time we flew, N was about the same age as Baby J is now. It will be interesting…

    1. I really hope I can get it done! But I’m not optimistic. At least J and N have cute new duds, so I’ll be sure to show pictures of them.

      So glad you commented — I’ve missed hearing from you. How’s everything going in IC?

    1. Thanks! Sadly, I didn’t get my dress finished before we left. I put it off too long and there was just too much to do to get 3 kids ready for travel for me to work on it much the few days before we left. I’ll finish it when we get home for a date night this summer 🙂 The kids’ stuff was finished though!

      1. Totally understand. That’s tough. It was fun to pack all my hand made items to Paris. You have a lot of hand made to show off in CA. Did you get some good fabric?

        1. OMG, Michael Levine is amazing! I got some nice silk, chiffon and a few knits from the main store. And also some oilcloth for tablecloths. But then at the lofts I got yards and yards for super cheap! Mainly chiffon and knits but a couple of rayons were thrown in and I think a silk. Next time I’m totally going down there sans kids and spending a whole day shopping (Maybe girls trip this fall after I’m done BFing!). There was so much there I didn’t have time to check out. And Mood and the Fabric Shop are in a totally different area.

          1. I enjoyed digging in the by the yard in Paris. I scored some great stuff. Excited to make stuff with it! Yes to a girls trip! That would be awesome!

          2. It was good! Lots of beautiful stuff. Decision paralysis. Project paralysis. And luggage limitations kept me in check. 🙂
