Coffee Conversations

Social Squares

Happy Friday! I hope you’ve had a good week. Between our trip to the mountains, a visit from my in-laws, and my parents coming into town, the last week and a half have been very full! It’s been a lot of great family time, which has a whole new layer with Liam around. I love getting to see him with his grandparents!

I’ll spare you the, “can you believe it’s almost October?!” cliché, but…..can you BELIEVE it’s almost October?! This is the time of year that work ramps up big time, so I know I’m going to blink and it will be 2021 already.

I’ve started using some DIME beauty products, after some hesitation, and am very much enjoying them. I’m using the day and night serum, along with the creams, and they’re working well for my skin. I’ll share more on IG Stories soon!

This $11 color block sweater is so cute! Perfect to pair with black jeans and booties or blue jeans and cute mules.

I’m happy to say that I’ve gotten back into the habit of reading before bed! I used to read all the time before Liam was born, but it’s taken a minute to get back into it. Some nights I don’t get to bed early enough, but I try my best to allow myself that time. I’m currently reading Regretting You by Colleen Hoover. I’m not terribly far into it, but am enjoying it.

I took advantage of a recent sale and ordered this wireless bra after hearing people rave about it on Instagram. Just a week into owning it, I totally get it. I love that it has the comfort of a wireless bra, but still creates a good shape and provides enough support.

It’s officially Chex mix and chili season, which makes me a very happy girl! My Chex mix recipe is on the blog here. This is the chili recipe I’ve used the last couple years – it’s so good! I use ground turkey and omit the sugar and parsley.

Have a great weekend!
