Let's Have a Coffee Break

Well, hey there!  It has been quite. a. while. since I've posted here at Let's Drink Coffee, Darling!

I'm stopping in to let the bloggy world know I miss it, and I'm hoping to be back soon with some posts!
If you were wondering where I've been, I have a lot of reasons that sound like excuses - but they're not, because I'm glad I can take time off from my blog when I need to focus on my life!  It's been about a month since my last post, which seems absolutely crazy because I've just been so busy the time has just flown by.
Some posts you can expect to see soon-ish will be a recap of our one-year wedding anniversary that was on May 18th, and this past weekend we took a trip with Tyler's family to dig for quartz in Arkansas!  I have lots of pictures and travel adventures to share in those posts, so keep your eyes open for them!

Now here are my reasons for not posting that sound like excuses:

I've been super busy changing my work schedule (again) as I now have to wake up at 4:30 am every morning for work.  If you know me, I. Am. Not. A Morning. Person.  Let's just say, it's tough.
Some of you might also know that I've been going as a part time student for a few years, which has really drug the university experience out way beyond the limits of what it ever should be.  I'll be lucky if I even like my university again by the time football season rolls around.  But on a positive note, my last three classes are this summer!  They're all upper division electives, so I've been getting to change things up and have a little fun!
Here are some pictures of the fun I've been having in my first class this summer, and by the end of this week I'll just have two more classes!

We got a new computer as an anniversary gift (yay!), so its awesome to have something that doesn't have a broken screen and works quickly!  I'm sure you're thinking, "Wait, how is this an excuse for not posting a blog post?"  Well, let me answer your question.  I have come to realize that I am Windows 8 illiterate.  I simply haven't figured out how to use it yet.  The other reason related to technology being that my hubby blames our old computer's slowness from being bogged down by all my photos, so I am no longer allowed to put my pictures directly on the computer since hubby basically gave me his external hard-drive.  I haven't taken the time to delete what is currently on the hard-drive and move all my pictures from the old computer to the hard-drive and then move all my recent pictures from my phone or camera to the external hard-drive so that I can upload them to write a blog post.
My last reason for not writing a blog post recently is because I've been furthering my endeavors with Love Coffee Darling, my small shop.  A couple months ago, my mom and grandma decided to open up a booth in Shawnee, Oklahoma to sell some of their rustic and primitive things.  I've been adding some of my own products, which has definitely been the main thing that has taken over the time that would normally be blog time.  I've really been missing the blog recently, and especially getting on and reading all of YOUR lovely posts!  
Here are just a few of the items I've been making for Love Coffee Darling!  You can visit my facebook page to see more!

Looking forward to getting some blog posts up and visiting each of your blogs!
Has this spring had you as busy as I've been?  What fun things have you done?  We've been having some beautiful thunderstorms over the past week, Oklahoma is in some great need of rain so the storms are much appreciated!

  1. It's so fun that you're selling things in a little shop now. Hope that picks up for you!
    And happy wedding anniversary (late)!

    1. Thanks, its been fun comping up with ideas for things to make!
      Happy anniversary to you guys too! :)

  2. Your drawings and crafts are so great!!

  3. Windows 8 is pretty weird--it took me a long time to get used to it! Happy belated anniversary to you!

    1. So strange to use, glad someone else agrees. I loved windows 7 too, but I'm sure I'll get used to 8 eventually!
      Thank you, I can't believe a year has already gone by! I need to drop by your blog soon and see how your China plans are working out! :)

  4. It seems like so many of us have been taking blogging breaks recently. I'm excited to get fresh posts from you soon! :-)

    1. I think it has been a busy spring for many of us...I think blog breaks are healthy too! We're all just normal people who get busy, and when we have time again we'll catch back up on our hobbies. Excited to work on some new posts, and I really need to make some rounds to the other blogs and check up on all of you! ;)

  5. I love the new items for your shop, they are so unique + adorable! And congrats to being so, so close to finishing school. You'll rock it out :)

    1. Thanks so much Caitlin! I can't wait to have some more time to work on items for the shop (and to blog), and to just be done! Last day of one class is today, and then just one last 4 week class and I'll be done forever! Yipee!
