Coffee with Karly | Gray Hairs, Shopping Faves & Thanksgiving Prep

TGIF! Two coffee chats in two weeks? WHO AM I? I guess I just have a lot to share right now. That, or I just love to ramble about insignificant nothings. 😉 Either way, these are the types of posts that I look forward most to writing. I wish I lived closer to all of you so we could really go grab coffee for real, but this will just have to do! Okay, time for coffee with Karly vol. 4.

I seriously don’t know how I ever lived before that little snuggle bug came into our life. My stress levels have been through the roof lately, but Finn somehow manages to calm me down throughout the day. #girlsbestfriend

Anyway, let’s talk about the most traumatic part of my week – I FINALLY FOUND/SAW A GRAY HAIR. My hairdresser told me at my last appointment that I actually have quite a few gray hairs already, but since I hadn’t seen them it was kind of out-of-sight/out-of-mind. Welp, ignorance is no longer bliss. Would you judge me if I told you I sat on the bathroom floor and cried a few tears? Judge away! I’m dramatic, what can I say. I have no clue what the average age is to start seeing gray hairs, but I never thought it would be the measly age of 28. Oh well, bless thy creator of hair dye.

This is all the more reason for me to chop my hair in a few weeks, right?! Current inspiration picture – it changes daily.

I’m glad that my renewed perspective on blogging resonated with many of you. Your comments were so positive and encouraging! We all need to continue to support one another and allow our voices/opinions to be heard. There’s plenty of room for all of us, and I think you’re all rock stars.

Old Navy needs to quit emailing me coupons. That store is my kryptonite right now. Thanks to 40% off, I ordered this embroidered blouse and buffalo check blouse. I’m waiting for both to arrive, so check Instagram stories for the final verdict.

Also on the topic of shopping, we’re taking our household love of Disney to a whole new level this year. Matching Disney Christmas jammies. Even for Finn!

It’s hard to believe we’re only a few days away from Thanksgiving! My parents are coming Wednesday with the rest of my family arriving sometime Thursday for the big meal. Grocery shopping and wrapping up all the house projects are on our weekend agenda. Are you hosting? Got your turkey yet?

WHO ELSE HAS TAYLOR SWIFT ON REPEAT?! It’s #cantstopwontstop over here. The album has far exceeded my expectations, and it’s damn near impossible to pick a favorite song. Don’t Blame Me and New Year’s Day are probably my top right now, though.

And, on that note – I’m outta here! Ryan surprised me by scoring yesterday off work, so we lucked out with an extra-long weekend (he has every other weekend off, including Fridays). Besides Thanksgiving prep, we’re going to hit up a big local Christmas craft fair tomorrow and maybe get out to see a movie – Murder on the Orient Express looks pretty good, yeah?

Have a warm and wonderful weekend!
