Virtual Coffee Date II

by Hillary on March 4, 2014

Tuesday afternoon. Where’s the coffee? Shall we get a cup (or two) and catch up? I think yes.

If we were having coffee this afternoon, I’d first tell you that I’ve brought out my cold brew coffee maker from the back of the cupboard, and I have a jug of dark, cocoa-y coffee in my fridge. After an unnecessary streak of Starbucks sips, my bank account told me we should probably break up with The Bucks, temporarily, to save money for that beach vacation.

If we were having coffee this afternoon, I’d tell you that I finally, finally, updated my iPhone to the new operating system. Of course, of course, something went wrong and I was forced to reset my phone to factory settings. Thank the technology geniuses for iCloud; it totally saved me. Who else loves the flashlight feature?


If we were having coffee this afternoon, I’d tell you that I finally gave in and bought a new handbag that I’ve been ogling over for while. It’s totally justifiable though, seeing as that I’ve been using the same purse since my sophomore year of college. I was so excited about the 40% off sale (and free shipping) that I completely spaced to use Ebates — shucks.

If we were having coffee this afternoon, I’d tell you that I got accepted as a FitFluential ambassador. I found out last Friday and am proud to join the team. I had applied once in the past and didn’t “get in”, so I am glad I was tenacious and tried again!


If we were having coffee this afternoon, I’d tell you that I’m really enjoying IIN. We had our first coaching call last week, and it was splendid; I really enjoy my coach (who is all the way in Australia!). I love the variety of the lecture topics each week, and I feel inspired to healthify my already healthy life.


If we were having coffee this afternoon, I’d offer you a peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookie.


If we were having coffee this afternoon, I’d remind you that today is National Pancake Day; and, well, since morning is long gone… breakfast for dinner is totally okay in my book. A stack of Puffy PB Banana Pancakes are fit for the celebration.


If we were having coffee this afternoon, I’d invite you over to help me polish off my Costco-sized bag of Brussels, catch up with The Bachelor, and indulge in some Ben and Jerry’s — shhh, that’s just between you and me.

If we were having coffee this afternoon, what would you tell me?

Do you remember our first {virtual coffee} date?

oooh the costco size bag of brussel sprouts… working through my own at the moment as well!


Lauren @ Sassy Molassy March 4, 2014 at 4:09 pm

Um, you definitely have to show us this purse. I have been drooling over fancy purses for a year or two now, but haven’t bit the bullet. The few purses I have owned in the last 10 years have been $40 or less. I’m definitely ready for a grown up purse. ;)

Congratulations on being accepted as a FitFluential ambassador! I would loveee a peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookie right now. I would actually love to lick that measuring cup and spoon right now!


Caroline March 4, 2014 at 4:52 pm

I haven’t updated my phone either : O ..Oops. I’m glad you’re enjoying IIN! I found out today was pancake day after breakfast which was a huge bummer and I already had dinner planned. Good thing I celebrated this past Sunday!

I love the sound of that Brussels sprout bag! I would tell you that my new phone is awesome and I am loving every second of figuring it out! :)


Hillary March 4, 2014 at 6:50 pm

What kind of phone? :)


Elizabeth {Positively Healthy} March 5, 2014 at 10:23 am

It is a Motorola Atrix!

I would tell you about my career and how desperately I want to change it, but my injury has put plans on hold. I would ask you if you like what you do, everyday. I would share an almond butter muffin with you.


Hillary March 4, 2014 at 6:52 pm

Do you have a favorite almond butter muffin recipe?


Megan @ The Skinny-Life March 5, 2014 at 8:22 am

I do have a recipe and it is delicious! It’s easy too – just almond butter, oats, banana, honey & flaxseed. I made a batch last weekend and brought them to work and my team went nuts over them!


Megan @ The Skinny-Life March 5, 2014 at 8:23 am

I will post it next week and let you know.


Giselle@myhealthyhappyhome March 4, 2014 at 8:25 pm

Love the Costco Brussels sprouts! I buy a bag every other week! I’d tell you that my booty is so sore from a Nike Club Training workout I did yesterday. Funny, even with CrossFit, spinning and my normal training, I’m sore from an almost all bodyweight workout!

What a cute idea – virtual coffee date! Great post. I love how personable you are, it’s like you’re sitting with me at a coffee shop!
