If We Were Having Coffee

Hey! So I’ve seen this post idea floating around for a bit, most recently withย Natalieย andย Georgia. I like the idea of doing one every now and then (maybe an end of the month thing), as coffee dates are good for a catch up right? Also, you guys will know by now that I’m a joiner. I love joining in with whatever fun things are happening. Just look around, and soon enough you’ll see me, creeping closer and closer (in a hopefully friendly way) asking if I can join in ๐Ÿ˜€

First off, let’s set the scene. I like sitting in mushy couch chairs so I can get comfy. I also like having a table so I can use it for said coffee. I also like sitting across from who I’m talking to, so there’s no awkward constant head turning.

Somewhere here we will be sitting

Now, for the drinks. I am fond of every single frappucino in the world. Even if it’s freezing weather. You guys order what you want.

I normally order only one, but sure three will work.

Okay, here we go.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that this past month has been really good. Blogging has been going great. I’ve made a ton more blogging friends, as well as continued to learn more about bloggers I’ve known for longer. I’d tell you about how fun and exhausting that 30 Day challenge was. But that it made me search for more challenges to do, and I may have a problem. I’d also wonder why my follower count keeps climbing higher and higher, as it does confuse me. I’m super proud, but also, you know, where are you guys coming from? Some have just followed without liking any posts or commenting..that really confuses me.

If we were having coffee, I’d let you know that I’m still kinda bummed that we didn’t get that one house. Blogging friends, non blogging friends, Rory and family have said that we’ll get something better and not to worry. But I was liking the idea of owning our own place, of paying mortgage rather than rent, so our money can be going towards something we really want. I will say that I’m excited to check out more open homes though, see what else is out there.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’m already so sick of winter and it hasn’t even officially started. June is the official start and I’m already over it. It’s going to get colder, wetter and darker. I hate that the sun sets just after 5, and that when I finish work at 5.30, it’s already getting pitch black. Bring back the sun!!

If we were having coffee, I’d show you more wedding and honeymoon photos because I literally can’t stop showing people them. I’d also let you know that I’m beyond excited for the rest of our photos to come through either next month or July. We’re going to get hundreds, and it’ll be like reliving the day all over again through high def pictures. Plus it means I get to make it into an album of sorts!!

If we were having coffee, I would also mention that I am worried I’m getting sick. I can feel my energy draining sooner at work than normal, and at the end of the day I’m more shattered than usual. I’d let you know that as much as I love the babies and toddlers I work with, I wish they wouldn’t accidentally sneeze and/or cough in my face. I’m doing my best to stay healthy, but my immune system can only do so much.

If we were having coffee,ย I’d ask about how your month has been. What things you’ve been excited about, things that could have gone better, and what’ll be happening for you in the next month.

After our chat I’d ask if you also want something to eat, because I have been staring at their wall of baked goodies and I can’t resist any longer.

Looking forward to our next catch up at the end of June!


  1. awesome read! I did one of these recently too. they are fun !

    1. Thank you! They are a lot of fun!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. I did this type of post just last summer. It was one of the prompts on the wordpress everyday inspiration course I took

    1. Awesome ๐Ÿ˜€

      1. As a matter of fact, taking the two wordpress classes I took summer was when I started to notice success on my blog

  3. I love these posts! I remember crying my eyes out over a house we didn’t get, but we ended up getting the perfect home for us! Good luck to you guys!

    1. Thank you so much Carly! I’m glad to hear that ๐Ÿ˜€

    2. I’ve been there too. It’s a sucky feeling and its crazy how fast we can really get invested emotionally in a place.

  4. I was actually drinking coffee while reading this haha. I love how these posts are set up! I’m worried that I’m getting sick too. Maybe we should switch to tea! xx.

    1. Nice! I have just finished my morning coffee ๐Ÿ˜€
      Aw man, that sucks you’re starting to feel unwell too. Maybe tea would be better XD

  5. Loved this!!! X

    1. Thanks Anni ?

  6. I love this idea! Great format to write in. As for the house, youโ€™ll get there and youโ€™ll find the one you wouldnโ€™t change for anything. We went through so many let downs and disappointments but it will all be worth it in the end. Grab one of those pastries though to help yourself through it ?

    1. Thank you! This was so much fun to write! We’ve started looking around at more homes, and at least now we know how to process of making an offer works ?
      I will definitely have a pastry or two in the meantime though ?

  7. I saw Natalie’s and loved hers! I want to do my own soon ? If we were having coffee I’d ask to see even more wedding photos over our baked goods!

    1. You should totally do one! It’s a lot of fun to write. I would love to show off more of wedding photos! ? I would totally show more on my blog, but I’m starting to run out of space XD

      1. Hahahaha I’m so scared I’ll run out of space someday!!! ? I’ve run out pretty much everywhere else hahahaha! (Phone, iCloud, etc.)

  8. Nice one Ange, hope you wont get sick. But I bet it’s the weather too. ???

    1. Thanks Janeth ?
      I really hope I don’t get sick either, and I totally blame the weather if I do

  9. I LOVE THIS!! xx

    1. Thanks!! You were the inspiration behind it since i saw you do it first ?

  10. Hey Angela sounds like a buddy date! Let’s go! I’m definitely thinking of making a post like this! And about the house don’t worry that much, when you don’t get something you want you’re saving yourself for something better ?

    1. I’m keen!! ๐Ÿ˜€
      You should totally make a post like this, it was so much fun to write XD
      Thank you, you guys are being so supportive and nice, it’s making me a lot more happier about the whole house situation. Something better will come up ๐Ÿ˜€

  11. Love this! Such a unique idea!

    1. Thank you! It’s such a fun idea ๐Ÿ˜€

  12. What a great idea! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m praying for you that you aren’t sick. It’s such a unique way to get to know you better.

    1. Thanks Bee! This was a really fun post to do ๐Ÿ˜€

      1. anytime! & yeah it sounds like it ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. What a great format for a blog post, I really like it! Really keeping my fingers crossed for the other open homes for you, and that you’re not coming down with something as I’m sure you could do without getting sick right now! x

    1. Thank you so much! ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. If we were having coffee I’d want about half of what was in that sweets counter. The right house will come ๐Ÿ™‚ and I laugh so hard about you’d be showing me wedding photos lol…which I would love ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Those treats all look so good right?? ?
      And yes, I love showing everyone all my wedding photos ?

      1. Yes, I’m glad I stopped and got tiramisu on my way home or I’d be craving something out of that photo lol

  15. This is an amazing idea for a post. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. ๐Ÿ™‚ I agree, winter is such a sad season. I don’t like it when the sun sets so early.

    1. Thanks Maggie! I really do love this post idea, I want to do it again at the end of this month ๐Ÿ˜€

      1. You’re welcome! Yes, please do. I would enjoy that.
