Coffee with Karly | Random Thoughts After a Week With No Heat

Hey, hey! Happy Friday. Did everybody survive the time change? I’m definitely digging the extra hour of sleep, but I fully admit that I’m ready to go to bed by 4:30 in the afternoon. Total darkness by early afternoon is a total buzzkill. Anyway, lots of random things to chat about over coffee this morning so let’s jump into coffee with Karly vol. 3.

If you didn’t see our current house woe on Instagram, our furnace died last week! Yep, just as temperature lows are dipping into winter territory our trusty 22-year-old furnace decided to go on a permanent vacation. Timing was impeccable as always. Let me tell you – living without heat for nearly a week is not the way to go. I’ve never spent so much time in bed and/or under blankets. I personally want to thank the person that invented space heaters and heated blankets/mattress pads. Total lifesavers through it all. Our heat happily was restored Tuesday, and I may or may not occasionally turn it up to 75 F just because I can. The things we take for granted …

Unfortunately because of that fiasco, my to-do list took a hit. It’s hard to concentrate when your hands are so cold that your fingers are blue. Makes it kind of hard to type.

On that note, Taylor Swift’s Reputation is out today! *jumps up and down*

Have you watched and/or finished season two of Stranger Things yet? When I wrote this month’s currents, I wasn’t overly impressed. We’ve since finished it, and they totally won with the last 30 seconds. I’m hooked and already dying for season three. That still doesn’t change my mind about episode seven – pointless. Oh, and does anyone else find Hopper kind of attractive? Maybe it’s just me … but not according to this!

Everyone and their mom was talking about the launch of Hearth and Hand by Magnolia this week. Ehh, I was slightly underwhelmed. There’s some pretty pieces, but overall I was left wanting more. Some garland (couldn’t find it online, sorry!) and a doormat were all that came home with me.

Also, can we pump the brakes on all the Christmas stuff? I mean, more power to you if that’s your prerogative to decorate now. No judgment. BUT IT’S NOT EVEN THANKSGIVING YET.

Since I’ve dipped back into the world of powder foundation, I’m thinking about giving the original bareMinerals a try. Suggestions? Yes, no? I figure if it’s good enough for Julia then it’s good enough for all of us.

I need one (or all) of you to make the decision for me whether I should cut my hair or not. This is what I go through EVERY SINGLE TIME my hair finally is long. I love it, but I also don’t feel like it has a lot of style – you know? I’m thinking Cameron Diaz circa The Holiday or Kate’s clavicut might be in my future. We’ll see.

Okay, well this might be the most pointless and random blog post that I’ve ever written. But hey – that’s how it goes sometimes! Always love chatting with all of you.

Have a great weekend!

In case you missed this week’s post, I shared a six-month update on my battle with negative body image and what I do to keep my hair healthy.
