If We Were Having Coffee…

Well, hey there! I know, I know, I start blogging again and then disappear for a week! To my defense, this has been quite a month! I’ve been busy every single weekend (when I do most of my writing) and out of town most of the last week! I’m hoping to get back into a better blogging schedule soon, so stay tuned!

Today, I thought I’d catch you up on what’s going on in my life by having a virtual coffee date. While I’d love to get coffee with each and every one of you, this will just have to do!
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you…

… that I got to go on an overnight field trip last week! The 7th-grade class went to Keystone Science School for three days last week and because they have so many girls in the grade they needed an extra female chaperone. I was asked if I could go and help out and, of course, I said yes! Although I was a little nervous, it turned out to be a LOT of fun. I loved getting to meet most of the kids and watch them interact (oh, Middle School…) as well as get to know the 7th-grade faculty. Spending three days in the mountains didn’t hurt either!


If we were having coffee, I’d tell you…

… that when I got home from Keystone I took a shower, repacked my bag, and then headed out on my next adventure! My friend, Maddie, and I got an Air BnB near Vallecito Lake, CO and made a road trip out of Memorial Day weekend. We drove to Colorado Springs on Friday night, then headed out early that morning. Over the weekend we saw some beautiful views driving across Colorado, went hiking, ate s’mores, relaxed at the yurt, went to an event at a local vineyard, and enjoyed lake life!


If we were having coffee, I’d tell you…

… that while I thought the yurt was cute and I loved being in the woods, I would not recommend the bathroom situation. It was basically a metal screen and a compost toilet… I survived for a couple days but it wasn’t exactly my favorite part of the trip. But you have to try everything once, right?!


If we were having coffee, I’d tell you…

… that I realized during my two trips how many times I think to myself, “I wonder how/what/when….” and then never actually look up the answer. Don’t you ever think of a question you have about something but then never look up the answer? While we were driving, I decided to start actually writing down some of these questions. Some are funnier than others… but at least now I have them written down so I can look them up!

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you…

… that I am SO EXCITED FOR SUMMER! This is the last week of school for the students and while I don’t actually get summers off (we have a LOT to do during the summer!) we do get shortened hours and most of us use our vacation days during this time since things were too busy during the year to use them. I’m hoping to do more hiking, writing, meeting people, and maybe even a few fun things like going to the driving range, batting cages, or even sailing!

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you…

… that I’m not following a workout program! I know, so unlike me, right?! Right now I’m just going with the flow and doing what I feel like and I have to admit – six days off while traveling was kind of nice! Although I was not quite as excited about it during those driving days… However, I think after a few weeks of just going with the flow I’m ready to push myself again! I’m thinking of trying out a new program from Beachbody called Shift Shop when it comes out in July but I need something to do in June!

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you…

… that I’ve been horrible about going to church on Sundays. The last time I went was Easter, and it’s not just because I’ve been busy! I really need to get back into the habit. I have to admit, it was much easier to go in Chicago because I knew I’d see my friends there and they were expecting me. I tried joining a small group but it was disorganized and kind of fell apart. I need to find something new!

 

Your turn!

Tell us something that’s going on in your life!

    I also haven’t been to church lately. If I’m at my apartment I go. But lately I’ve had baby showers on Sundays, and of course they start at 11 am, not 1 pm. But here’s hoping I can go this week, I need the refresh!
