June Coffee Date – 5 Things Over Tea

wp-1472756999291.jpgToday I’m joining the Ultimate Coffee Date for some catching up!  On the first Saturday of the month… we gather with our warm beverage of choice for some catch up!

Over tea,  I’d tell you all about my vacation to NE KS.  I had so much fun visiting with family and seeing old friends (one I hadn’t seen in over 20 years). I ran 2 races while I was there (recaps coming soon), went to a Royals game (the one the won in the Yankees series), and spent a little time at my old college hang out (Free State Brewery).

Over tea or coffee, I’d share with you that the hubs and I picked our vacation spot for our lucky #13 wedding anniversary trip… we’re going back to Jamaica, even to the same resort we got married at.  I’m pretty excited… only 31 days until we leave!

Over tea or coffee, I’d share with you that the hubs wants to renew our vows while we are in Jamaica… so, I’m on the hunt for a dress.  So far, I haven’t found anything… why can’t what I’m imagining in my head be sold at the stores? This is probably the lesser of evils, as I’m not looking forward to trying on swimsuits either!

Over tea, I’d tell you all about my fun morning the other day.  I was getting ready for work (and running late, as per usual), and my flat iron just went kaput! Seriously… I only had about 1/3 of my hair straightened.  So, I did what any sane person would do, I marched into Wal-mart on the way to work, purchased a new flat iron and finished my hair in the bathroom at work.

Over tea, I’d share my excitement about being able to represent Spandits! for another year!  I really love all their stuff and wear it all the time … even to work – they have dresses, and the capris can be dressed up as a tunic when I decide to boycott our dress code that isn’t jean friendly on Friday.

Well, that catches me up…what would you tell me, if we were having tea or coffee?

    Jamaica! How fun! Never been, always wanted to.

    Right now I’m happy I don’t straighten my hair. 🙂

    LoL on the hair appliance issue. My hair is baby fine so no flat iron needed. I used to use a curling iron back in the day …. Congrats on your upcoming anniversary and good luck with the dress and bathing suit shopping!

    Congrats on the ambassadorship–another year of cute running gear is always a win!

    How fun that your hubs wants to renew your vows. Mine is so not romantic like that. I’m sure you’ll have fun!

      I was seriously considering just pulling it back in a ponytail, but the ocd in me couldn’t let it go!

    Jamaica looks beautiful! I’ve never been there but have heard it’s a wonderful vacation spot. It would be perfect for a vow renewal 🙂

    We’ve been to Jamaica and had a blast. It’s so sweet your hubs wants to renew your vows. I’ve done the whole finish-your-hair-at-work thing. Usually because I’ve been running and then running late. Can’t wait to see your dress

      I used to keep a flat iron at work, but that was when I commuted 50 miles to work and left the house at 5am, finishing up getting ready at work was a no-brainer then!

    How fun to go back to your honeymoon spot! Oooh those plaid capris are so cute. I should probably get them.

    I had a similar (sort of) thing happen with my hair…a dude grabbed me and wanted to show me a curling rod of some sort. He proceeded to put several ringlets on ONE side of my head. Finally, I could tell where the conversation was going, and I abruptly (though kindly) told him I wasn’t interested in his $149 curling thing…and he said the demo was over. Seriously? Lucky for me, I had a hair clip in my purse, so I was able to clip up my hair and make it look like both sides were curled (because I did not want to walk around with half of my hair curly and the other half bone straight. We renewed our vows in Hawaii a few years ago…and I wore a Hawaiian floral (casual) dress…is that an option (or something beach-themed) in Jamaica?

      Oh how awful, thank goodness you had a hair clippy in your purse! Yes… I’m thinking summery/beachy dress… I’m finding dresses I like but the colors are way too dark (black or jewel tones).

    Oh the trip to Jamaica sounds so nice and the fact that your hubby suggested renewing your vows is super sweet! Good luck with the dress shopping! You will find what you are looking for! Try Athleta for a swimsuit- I swear they have the best fit for fit girls 🙂 Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
