Let’s Have Coffee and Chat {3/25/15}

Happy Hump Day my friends. It’s been nearly two weeks since I’ve posted. Sorry about that. Time gets ahead of sometimes. And unfortunately, the blog takes the hit.

Since it’s been a couple weeks, let’s catch up!

Lets Have Coffee

If we were having coffee, I would tell you…


I’m not excited or anything…. BUT IN 4 DAYS WE WILL BE LEAVING FOR VEGAS. Any questions? No, okay good. Because I’ll just keeping yelling about how we are leaving for Vegas. I can’t even wait for 90s and sun and the desert and cold drinks, and yeah. I just can’t wait. But don’t worry, the blog won’t be dark last week. I have a some posts already lined up and ready to go!

BlogHer is awesome.

I made a great connection though BlogHer with the Blogging and Social Media editor, who also runs the #MicroblogMonday linkups at Stirrup-Queens, and she’s been pushing my posts to the homepage at least twice a month. I even had my first syndicated/original post go live there last week. It’s been so incredible to see people actually enjoying what I write, and I feel very blessed to have something I’m passionate about. In fact, another post was pushed to the homepage today!

If you haven’t checked out Melissa’s blog, you should.

The gluten-free thing lasted about a day.

Then stress set in. And since I’m a stress-eater, I gave in to the carbs. Not like overload, but I ate them. Anyways, after our trip I’ll be back to focusing on the healthier side of my life. I won’t have a choice. It will be time to start trying on wedding dresses and planning a wedding!

We’re finally getting some spring-like weather.

Two weeks ago, it was nearly 60 degrees. Then it dropped back into the 20s and 30s, where we were stuck for like a week. We’re crawling back into the 40s today and 50s tomorrow. Followed by more 30s. But, it’s not snowing and it’s not below zero. So I’m considering this a win.

Butter pecan coffee is back at Dunkin’ Donuts.

I’m beyond obsessed with this flavor. They need to keep it year-round. It’s like drinking spring out of a cup. It’s probably awful for you, but I don’t even care. It’s delicious.

Have a wonderful day!

That alone put my excitement over the top, but I was even more excited to discover that they have featured it on their homepage.

And to make things even better…… they tweeted the post out to their over 100K followers on Twitter.

I know my excitement may seem extreme, but this is the first time that any of my blog posts have been picked up or featured on any huge site like this. I don’t really have words to describe how I feel. Besides excitement. Since I’ve probably written than word at least 5 times already.

I always write for me. And because I enjoy it. So for it to have the potential to be seen by hundreds of thousands of people is pretty surreal. And a dream. And I guess, a bucket list item accomplished too (I wanted a post to go viral. While not viral, I’ll consider it a success!)
