Friday Coffee Date

Happy Friday everyone! Does anyone have any fun plans for the weekend? We have a couple of Father’s Day celebrations going on, maybe a trip to the park with James, and hopefully some delicious meals…my favorite, always 🙂 It’s a 3pm coffee date today, for all of my caffeine people. Those of you that can drink coffee this late, how?! I say that as I sit across from my husband who’s drinking a caramel iced latte at the moment…

I don’t have a list of favorites today, I feel like they would be a little boring this week. So instead we are going to have a quick coffee date! More as an imaginative place for me to escape to since I’m sitting in my usual spot in our apartment. Let’s all pretend we’re at a lovely cafe in any location you’d like to be in right now. Ahhh…

I have been laughing out loud at the 5 minute marinara sauce I posted yesterday. Raving about how it was a lifesaver for getting James to eat vegetables. Truly a comical moment because a few hours after I published the post James didn’t touch his pasta with the vegetable marinara sauce at dinner. He much preferred the strawberries and bread that were on his plate. It turns out I can’t promise miracles at the dinner table.

Almost mask free! That’s where my mindset is as I anxiously wait to get my second Covid shot this Tuesday. I’m excited and nervous. So many mixed reviews about side affects from the second shot. Either way, I can’t wait for the freedom of not wearing a mask everywhere.

Summer plans anyone? Such a great season. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about winter, but with a baby in the mix winter just seems harder. Like it takes an hour just to get properly dressed and out the door type of hard. Summer on the other hand, throw on a pair of flip flops, lather on the sunscreen and you’re good to go! I sort of kid, because let’s be honest there are still a million things to pack for summer, but it’s all for fun. James and I are looking forward to a mini beach vacation in a few weeks with family down in South Carolina, I’m hoping he loves the beach as much as I do!

Does anyone else dream about ice cream non-stop all summer? That’s where I’m at. I plan activities around stops for ice cream, and it quickly becomes the highlight of every weekend. Let’s add ice cream to the list of why summer is the best.

Alrighty folks, that’s all I’ve got for ya today. Behind the scenes I’m working hard on releasing my first meal plan for you guys so stay tuned for that! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Question of the day: What’s your favorite season during the year and why?


Hi I'm Rae and I am a pastor's wife and mom to our one year old son James. I recently started blogging as a way to share my recovery journey from an eating disorder, as well as married life, motherhood, food, and faith. Hop along for the ride, I’m glad you’re here!
