Coffee Chat: Volume 45

1. Wedding planning has taken over here! We've also set a wedding date! I don't think I will announce the wedding date on the blog just yet. Or at all. Not sure. Is that sharing too much? But I will definitely share bits and pieces of the wedding planning process here on the blog. I'm so excited!! 💕

2. I'm trying to get outside as much as I can to get a tan. I wanted to have a little tan for my birthday, but I'm not sure if I'll have much of a tan. I may just end up getting a spray tan or something. But spray tans are always kind of scary, because I don't want to look orange! 😳😂 

3. I've been really into ASMR videos. I know that some people find them weird, but for me they help me relax and help with my anxiety. I really like Gwen Gwiz and Sophia Chang's ASMR videos. 

4. We get to do some traveling towards the end of the month and I'm pretty excited about it! Not going to announce it here on the blog just yet, but I will definitely have to do a whole post on where we go! It's just that exciting haha!! 

5. I've had a lot of coffee today. Like I feel like I could run a marathon right now! 😂

Hope you guys have a great Friday and a great weekend!

Friday Rambles!

Friday, May 03, 2019

I can't believe it's already Friday! Where did this week go?! Last weekend was such a busy weekend, I feel like I've spent most of the week just catching up on stuff. Mostly laundry. 😂 Thursday we went to a three day music festival in Iowa. We got to stay at the lake in our new camper, which was super exciting! The new camper is SO NICE! It's just really nice to have a bathroom in the camper, and not have to walk like five miles to the bathroom. And to actually be able to shower in our own shower, and not have to use the public shower. 

Anyway, the lake is really pretty! It is one of my favorite places that we've camped. So we went up there on Thursday to just get settled in for the weekend. Friday was the first show of the weekend. J also released a new album!! And then he did two shows on Saturday, and one on Sunday. The shows were a lot of fun! I did take pictures but I feel weird posting them here on the blog. I don't know why haha. 😂 

So we ended up staying until Monday, instead of driving home on Sunday. It was just so cold and rainy on Sunday, we really didn't want to mess with hooking up the camper and driving home in the rain. On Monday morning we met up with a couple of friends for breakfast. We went to a super cute local place. I got a yummy cappuccino! I also got bacon and hashbrowns for breakfast. 

Oh and also on Sunday, we went to a memorial dance for a musician friend of ours. He passed away a few months ago. The band that he was apart of sang songs, and a lot of different musicians played. It was a fun and sad time all at once. I took this pic on our way there. I was hoping to have a cute pic, but then J ended up making this weird face haha 😂 A friend of ours also took pictures of us dancing, but I haven't seen them yet. I wish I had them to post here! Once I get them, I'll try to post them somewhere! 

So yeah, Monday we headed back home. We had to figure out what the heck we were gonna do with our camper, because it rained like two inches at home. We did find a spot to park it at home though! Eventually we want to build a garage for it but it's going to be kind of pricey to build one. I don't normally post pictures of me without makeup but lately I've just been loving not wearing makeup. I also really liked my hair with my hat. I just felt really good and wanted to post this selfie! 😊

So that was my weekend! This week has just been spent catching up on stuff from the weekend. Bella got a super cute birthday card from Chewy in the mail. Her birthday is tomorrow. I can't believe she's going to be two!! I posted a picture of the card on my Instagram Story yesterday. 

I hope you guys have had a great week! And I hope you have a great weekend!

XOXO, Chelsea

1. Yesterday was Easter! My family just had a small dinner with my grandparents, parents, and J and I. Saturday evening, we celebrated Easter on J's side of the family, which was a lot of fun! He has a huge family, with lots of nieces and nephews which is a lot of fun. I love spending time with his family and I love that I'm going to have a million nieces and nephews! 

2. My allergies have been going crazy lately! Or at least I'm assuming it's allergies. I had hives on my arms the other night, and then yesterday my face was super red and had hives on it. I haven't used any different products or eaten anything different, so the only thing I could think of was allergies. Going to keep taking my allergy medicine, and keep an eye on my skin!

3. I'm loving seeing all of the trees and flowers start to bloom! Our magnolia tree is out, tulips are out, and so are the flowering pear trees. I can't wait for my roses to start blooming! And I can't wait to buy all the flowers. I'm so excited! 

4. We've started working on our camper remodel. This camper doesn't need a whole lot of stuff, just paint. And at some point I'd like to add a new floor. But that won't be for awhile. I want to do a whole post showing the remodel process. Right now we've just painted the cabinets. And we used colors from the Magnolia collection from Joanna Gaines! That was pretty exciting for me haha 😂

5. I need more coffee today. I'm so tired!! 

Hope you guys are having a great Monday!

1. I feel like it's been forever since I've talked to you guys! Life has just been crazy lately. Between working on different projects, going to J's shows, and other various life things, it's just been crazy! 

2. J and I have been busy working on getting our camper ready for our next trip! I would love to bring the cats with us, which I've been working on getting Bella and Waffle used to walking with a harness and leash. But I don't think they're ready to go on a trip quite yet. Little Lou has been helping us get the camper ready. And by help, I mean he sits on the front step in the sun. 

3. Last month I went to my first bridal fair! Well, technically not my first bridal fair because I used to go to them all the time when I did freelance makeup for weddings. But it was my first bridal fair since getting engaged! I went with J's stepmom L, my friend S, and her Mom. It was so much fun! Even though we're not doing a whole bunch of wedding planning yet, it was nice to go and get some ideas. Plus learn about some of the different vendors out there. Oh, but the venue that the bridal fair was at was beautiful!! 

4. It's finally starting to feel like spring around here! The weather has been beautiful lately. I've been trying to get outside and enjoy it! Like today, it's supposed to be in the 70's! 

5. We've finally started doing some work on the camper! I can't wait to show you guys how it looks!! Right now we're just painting because that's what's in the budget right now. Eventually we'll tackle bigger projects, like a new floor and countertop. 

I hope you guys are having a great Saturday!! 😊

Wellness Healthy Indulgence Gravies Grain-Free Cat Food Pouches: Review!

Friday, March 15, 2019
The cats and I are reviewing the Wellness Healthy Indulgence Gravies Grain Free Cat Food Pouches today! We got these wet food pouches in the case size, which is four boxes of four chicken and turkey in gravy, and four boxes of tuna and mackerel in gravy. For a total of thirty-two 3oz pouches. 

Each pouch is made with real morsels of chicken, turkey, tuna, and mackerel. They don't contain any wheat, wheat gluten, corn, soy, artificial colors, and artificial flavors. I love how convenient the pouches are! My cats love these! They know exactly what they're getting to eat when I bring out the pouches. 

The cats give these treats five paws up and say they're whisker lickin' good! 😻

*The Wellness Healthy Indulgence Gravies Grain-Free Cat Food Pouches were sent to us (the cats and I) for review from Chewy. All opinions are our own! 

XO, Chelsea and the cats
