Coffee Conversations

mug from Elisabeth Ashlie
TGIF, am I right?! (I’m right.)

It’s been a good week around these parts. I’m working on some new and really exciting things for Elisabeth Ashlie, so it’s been a lot of prep work and planning. One of the things is creating and offering curated boxes for different occasions – think birthday, just because, etc. We have a Galentine’s Box available right now that is SO CUTE and so perfect for your bestie, sister, favorite gal.

Speaking of Galentine’s/Valentine’s Day, do you guys celebrate? Mike and I are not big celebrators with things like that. He will buy me flowers or offer to take me out, but we treat it just as any other day. I’m actually really looking forward to having kids just so I can help them make their Valentine’s to pass out at school and to their friends. Tell me you remember doing that! That was one of the most fun days in elementary school, to me. Especially if there was a secret love not from your crush in your little envelope 😉
I’ve been seeing these Nike’s allllll over Instagram and thought they looked pretty (yes, I chose to order them based on them looking pretty), so I ordered them and they’re nothing like what I thought they would look like. I thought they would be more of a champagne or blush color, but they’re very much a tan, so I’m returning them. Anyway, just giving you a heads up…if you’re looking for a solid pair of Nike’s for working out AND athleisure, these are winners. I have two pair and am just waiting for them to release another color that I need to have. LIKE THAT BEAUTIFUL CORAL. (I didn’t know that was an option until right now and I might be ordering them). 
Mike and I start our Marriage Prep class at our church this Sunday! I’m curious to see what the format is and if we’ll be doing a specific study, etc. I have no expectations for it, but I’m looking forward to (hopefully) discovering and discussing things that will set us up for success in our marriage. And yes, it’s still weird to say ‘our marriage’, because it’s actually happening 🙊
Okay, that’s enough from me. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

  1. I was so nervous about doing some sort of per-marital counseling/prep and it turned out to be such a wonderful thing. I highly encourage everyone to do it!

    My husband and I always go for a Valentine's Day lunch. The crowds aren't that bad at that time, and it it's fun to do something together while pretending at the same time that it's no big deal.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Love that mug! And those Nikes…do you wear them for working out, too? I'm kind of picky when it comes to workout shoes, but I've been looking for a good neutral 🙂 Enjoy your weekend!

  3. I love the Tanjuns for athleisure, but I found that they did not give enough support for working out..I so wished they could serve both purposes for me! I'm glad that you are able to get multi uses out of them, though!

    This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experience and i need to share this great testimony.
    About how i get my ex back after a breakup.
    I never believed it, because i never heard nor learn anything about it before.
    My name is Minerva D. Taylor from UK
    My boyfriend of a 2year just broke up with me and am 28 weeks pregnant. I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot. After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me once and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Adams can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my boyfriend came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Adams. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: or call/Whats-app: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.
