Coffee Conversations


Our 2-year wedding anniversary is coming up early next week! Some days it feels like we’ve been married forever (in a good way!), and others I can’t believe it’s already been two entire years since that wonderful day. We’ve been blessed to have had a lot of good things happen during this time and I’m grateful to be feeling very celebratory as the anniversary approaches! Neither of us are big “gesture” people, so we’ll probably just go out to a nice dinner. In other circumstances, I would love to do a little staycation somewhere, but we’ve got multiple weekend trips the next few weeks and one very exciting trip coming up in August, so we’ll keep the celebration low-key!

You may have already heard or seen around that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale kicks off to cardholders today! I’m a card member, so I’ll be shopping the sale as soon as it’s live at 12:30pm EST today. I’ll definitely be sharing the items that I think are worth considering, in case you’re also shopping. It’s a great time to get Fall/Winter staples and basics at a discounted price. I usually go for booties, a pair of premium denim, sweaters (like cashmere), and the occasional jacket. In years past, I’ve also used it as an opportunity to get a splurgey high-end item, like a great bag or leather jacket, so I’ll see if anything like that pops out to me.

Madewell has extra 30% off a bunch of summer styles, including these pocket tanks, this crossbody bag, and this sweater tee I’ve been wearing a lot.

If you need a good pair of mules for fall, these are IT!

I’ve been using these wireless earbuds the last few weeks and they work well! So well, in fact, that Mike started taking mine all the time to use them, so we had to buy another pair so he could have his own.

Have a great weekend!
