Coffee Talk 3/4/16

March 4, 2016 in About Me

Hi guys and happy Friday! We made it through another week!

You all know how much I love coffee. I see these coffee talk/coffee date posts a lot and I thought it was about time I’d do one too!


“May your burdens be light and your coffee strong.”

If we were having coffee…

I’d tell you that I am SO glad it is Friday. It’s been a long week and this semester has been pretty tough with work/tests. I try not to get super perfectionist like with school-work/tests, as I was that way once and it led to very obsessive tendencies. So I try my best, and I take the grades that I get. Mental health always comes first in my eyes.

If we were having coffee…

I would tell you that I absolutely LOVE Fuller House. Ah it is just so amazing… I was a huge fan of Full House and the fact that they have this show on Netflix now just makes my life 10x better.

If we were having coffee…

I would tell you that I am in love with Dunkin Donuts iced butter pecan coffee with almond milk. SOOO good.

If we were having coffee…

I would tell you that I am super excited for my trip to Florida. I can’t wait to just relax in the sun and soak up some warm weather. I am going with one of my best friends Gabby and my brother. We are staying with my Uncle. It is going to be so much fun!

If we were having coffee…

I would tell you that I was so happy to wear Sperry’s the other day without my feet freezing. Spring weather please be on your way!!

If we were having coffee…

I would tell you that I can’t believe it’s already March. Time is flying!

If we were having coffee…

I would tell you that I am so thankful for hats and dry shampoo… perfect for when you don’t have time to shower/are tired/want to rock the whole college look, ya feel me?

If we were having coffee…

I would tell you that I am so excited to see my family tomorrow and my dog Daisy!

If we were having coffee…

I would tell you that I have still been loving to write in my free time (which has been rare). I wrote this poem the other day 🙂

//I have a bit of extra fat on my tummy,

and my thighs jiggle a bit more, 

but my smile is a bit brighter

and I laugh like I never did before.

My six pack is gone,

and the number on the scale is up, 

Yet that ice cream cone that I eat care free, 

without even having to use my measuring cup. 

The mirrors that are less scary, 

the days without tears. 

Those are the things that kept me going,

throughout all these tough years.

And each and every morning, 

I make peace with that mirror. 

And ever since I gave up the self-hate cycle, 

life just got a lot more clearer. 

So I hug my tummy, 

and repeat in my head, 

that I am good enough, that I am beautiful,

and I have nothing but great things coming ahead.//

Now your turn!

What would you want to tell me if we were having coffee?

ALSO: Have you started Fuller House? 

Hope you guys have a great Friday!

Sending my love as always.

    If we were having coffee, there would be so many things I would tell you…all good things of course. Just for starters, what a great person you are, what an inspiration you are to me and so many people out there, and I could go on ….
    I haven’t watched Fuller House, but believe it is going to be available in South Africa on Netflix.
    Have a great weekend x

    I just started Fuller House and can’t wait to binge watch it this weekend :). You comment about wearing Sperrys reminded me of this one time in college when I was walking to class in flip flops talking to my grandma on the phone (it had been warm the day before) and it was freezing out. I said, “grandma, I have to go, I think I have frostbite on my toes!” hahahah I was alright and didn’t get frostbite, but it hurt so bad! I was just so ready for the warm weather to stick around!

    • Reply Alyssa March 4, 2016 at 5:03 pm

      It is such a good show!! Hahaha ah I just hope this warmer weather sticks around- I need spring and summer! Hope you have a great weekend Taylor!

    If we were having coffee I would tell you that I am so excited for SPRING even though I have no plans for anything fun =P I just want SUN and warmth all the time. I would also tell you I’ve never tried dry shampoo and it kind of scares me because I don’t know how it works :-X
    Fuller House is super cute! I’ve only had time to watch two episodes but it makes me smile 😀

    • Reply Alyssa March 5, 2016 at 2:13 pm

      I hope you have a great spring break!! And that the weather is nice for you! Fuller House is so cute, definitely cheesy but it makes me smile hehe 🙂

  • Reply Sarah March 5, 2016 at 2:49 am

    I watched the first episode of Fuller House the other day it’s too cute! I used to watch Full House with my sister growing up. I hear you on school stuff, we have to be careful not to let that perfectionist side take over. You are going to LOVE Florida! The weather has been perfect!

    • Reply Alyssa March 5, 2016 at 2:11 pm

      It is SO cute, a little cheesy but cute haha. And so true- we need to not let the perfectionist side take over. Ah that makes me so excited, I can’t wait for some nice weather!! Have a great weekend girl!
