Coffee chat, with cinnamon rolls!

Haven’t had a coffee chat in a little while, so I figured I would catch up on some major things going on here!

Of course, since it is cold here in Texas now (well, for the past two days), I feel like you must have something warm to drink in the morning, when you are first waking up! But, along with something warm to drink, I feel like the cooler weather brings the acceptance of eating a warm croissant(such a nice delicious cinnamon roll) as wel!

I have had some major changes this past month and I would definitely first start out the conversation by asking how you are doing, and find out the latest updates with you! I am a great listener, so I love when people get lost in their lives!

Once the conversation turned back towards me, I would definitely tell you that I have so many changes with my jobs, my house, and my family, that sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming.   Celebrating Rochelle’s first birthday was hard, yet rewarding.  I would tell you that my house itself is here, and my well is placed in, but we are still not living there.  We still have to get our electric pole and septic tank placed there.  God is showing me so much through this process, and at the end of the day, I must remember to trust in His timing, and just wait.  I would tell you that my last “official” day with my home health job in Austin is coming up and I can’t believe it! It has come by so fast, that I can’t believe it’s almost here, and she is almost 4! YAY, I am SO proud of her!  I would also tell you that I am SO beyond excited to be meeting up with my family (my cousin and her family) for thanksgiving!  I have to work that day, but I know it will be a GREAT new experience for all of us, and I can’t wait!

I would also probably tell you that I can’t believe Brielle is growing up SO fast! Next month, she will be 2 1/2 years old! Where in the world has time gone? I love this stage SO much, and I feel like I can do anything and everything with her.  She is such a big girl and has some major transitions coming in her life (potty training fully, transitioning from crib to bed, saying good-bye to paci’s), that I would almost say to beware of the upcoming months for us and say a LOT of prayers!  Transitioning to a new house will be completely different for her, yet exciting, and it will definitely bring so many new changes for her!  I would probably (if you are a mom) ask you how all of works and what the easiest techniques are.

By the end of our coffee date, we would definitely make sure we finish our cinnamon roll and make sure to get extra to take home to the family if we needed! We would definitely need to set up a date for our next meet-up, give hugs, and say our good-byes!

It was nice having another coffee date! I hope you are all doing well! 🙂


Coffee date, anyone?

Cheers to my first online virtual coffee date!

I am going to write to you (the readers) as if you were sitting right in front of me, about the upcoming events in my life! 🙂

First off, I would start with getting my coffee with french vanilla cream and one pink sugar.  It’s funny that if you would have asked me 10 years ago (in high school) I would have said “coffee is the worst tasting/smelling thing ever!”.  Well, fast forward a few years and going through nursing school, and then becoming a mom, definitely made me hop on the coffee band-wagon! But, if we were really on a date, I would definitely have to have a tasty treat (like donuts) to eat while sipping on my delicious coffee.


I would tell you that my brother and his bride-to-be officially announced their wedding date to everyone, and it’s definitely a lot sooner than we would have ever thought! 🙂

I would tell you that I am super excited about tomorrow.  For one main reason is that we are finally making a move to look into our future of moving out from renting to owning our first house! Oh and the most important part of tomorrow, is that we get to visit my Step-Dad (who I wrote the letter about here) and my Pop and check up on them! I love Seguin, and trying to fit all of the things that we want to do is sometimes hard, but making family a priority is a must! 🙂

I would also tell you that I am so excited to be able to get some days off(consecutive) in the near future, which makes everyone happy! I am already planning on how to relax as much as possible (even though, as a mom and a wife, relaxation doesn’t happen very often).

I would probably somewhat tell you how my sleep is so erratic these days.  Ever since we found out Rochelle had Trisomy 13, I stopped sleeping through the night.  I wake up so frequently every.single.night that I feel like I took a whole bunch of short naps, and have to function on such little deep sleep every day.  I bought a vivofit, and tracking my sleep with this watch, just confirms my lack of it.  I have tried taking benadryl on some nights that I just know I have to function better than my norm, and it appears that I wake up MORE when I take it.  Any suggestions?  I am not much about medication, but I work out, I don’t exactly eat the best all the time but I do try, and I try to go to bed at the same time most nights I work and stay up later the nights that I don’t work.  It has become more of a problem and I just want to find some help! 🙂

Lastly, I would tell you how much I am in love with the age of Brielle.  I LOVE the fact that she is now 2, and yes she definitely has her bad moments, but her good moments are just that, SO good. I love her independence, her joy, her laughter, and her ability to make you love her so much even when you are frustrated with her! I would tell you that God has blessed us with such a strong-willed two year old, that I know He is showing us the personalities of both her brother and her sister through her.

I would definitely enjoy my donut slowly and savor each delicious bite before finishing my coffee and we start packing our stuff up to head out!

I hope you enjoyed my first online virtual coffee date as much as I did! 🙂
