Good morning friends! This morning on #coffeetalk with Brooke & Hilary we catch up with Hilary on her vacation!! Turns out she is in need of a vacation after vacation and I think we all know how that works! And the weather in Southern Iowa is definitely not very motivating this week! After like 70 Monday, but windy, we have since had nothing but gloom. Clouds, cold rain AND snow! It makes you want to curl up on the couch and drink coffee all day!
While Hilary was on vacation she stayed with a follower Kim! How awesome is that! It’s amazing how we make new connections on social media. A prime example of how social media can be positive! It helps us make new friends! I don’t think I would have met Hilary if it hadn’t been for social media!
You need to listen to hear all about the best part of Hilary’s trip, driving on the beach, yes, on sand for miles to a secluded beach. It sounds awesome and definitely a memory you won’t forget!!
Meanwhile I survived the busyness of last week and am hoping to get some of those things done from last week that I slacked on. One of those things that didn’t happen last week was getting a new YouTube video posted. I had recorded video for a couple of things, one a DIY project and one a shopping trip, but I didn’t have time to get them edited and posted. That will happen this week!
I also didn’t get a new blog post up! I did do #coffeetalk with Brooke & Hilary, but that is its own beast. If you want to catch up on old #coffeetalks, click the button below that says #coffeetalk with Brooke & Hilary Series.
Watch About Designing the Outside of My Shop
My suggested topics of discussion this week with Hilary were emails and men who wear leggings under their shorts! If you ever have topics you would like us to discuss, just message one of us or comment below!
So emails. Hilary said she actually spent vacation cleaning out her inboxes. Sounds like she has 3 email accounts!!! And in her main one has about 200 emails!! OMG! That is causing me stress and it’s not my inbox! And, that is AFTER she had cleaned it out! Maybe I’m weird, but having a lot of emails in my inbox STRESSES me out!
I am very much a delete or put in a folder person. I also have 3 email accounts although one gets forwarded to another, so I only ever check two accounts if I’m on the computer and one account if I’m on my phone. That’s the nice thing about the email apps on your phone, all inboxes can show up together.
I get an email and I either put it in a folder, leave it or delete it. Folders are for things I want to keep, but don’t want to print. I periodically will go in and clean up folders. I leave it if it’s a task that needs completed or something that needs printed. When I’m close to the printer, I will print the item and otherwise they just sit and wait for me to print them. Majority of my emails get read and deleted.
Tell me in the comments below how many emails you have sitting in your inboxes! Right now I probably have about 10!
I brought up mens workout clothing just because I saw a guy wearing leggings under his shorts. He was probably my age and I don’t know why, but it makes me chuckle! My hubby wears them too, but for whatever reason I still find humor in this look! Hilary’s hubby wears some kind of cargo pant to run in! I think, it’s THESE.
Speaking of clothing, I am desperate for some clothes shopping. This weekend we will be in Des Moines for my husband’s monthly hair cut, so I think instead of hunting for junk, I better be hunting for a couple dressier clothing options. I attended a banquet with my husband this week and realized I have no seasonally appropriate dressy clothes! Once I quit teaching, all of those pieces went to the thrift store!
And with what I do, there is absolutely no reason to wear something nice. Because it will get stained, snagged, or limit my productivity!
We have a funeral to attend this month and I think that calls for getting something new! I might even grab some jeans while I’m at it, because those I do wear every day!
And speaking of jeans, I think I made a good decision and didn’t wear my “nice” pair while I painted a dresser! I was going to, but I reminded myself that EVERY time I think I will not get covered in paint THIS time, guess what happens…I get paint on something. And then that nice “something” becomes a working pair and I have nothing to wear when I’m not working!
Hilary has had success removing paint from clothing with THIS. Have you ever used it?
We appreciate you listening each week! Join us LIVE at 6:30am next week on my Instagram or wait for me to post it here!
Have a great week friends! Wether you are drinking coffee like me or Bubbly like Hilary, hit play and listen in!
