Coffee Dates and House Updates

It’s the end of January! Winter is in full swing, so Sadie and I have been keeping warm by having Starbucks dates most mornings and it’s one of my most favorite parts of the day.

I pack her a little breakfast and a few books and we go to our Starbucks and find a table to read and hang out. I’ve been enjoying the veranda blend coffee with cream and the special time with Sadie girl.

We’ve been using the winter months to work on a few house updates and projects and it has been so nice to tackle a few items that have been on our to-do list for too long!

First on the list was a new office space for me. Sadie’s nursery was our home office, so I was in need of a space of my own (aka not the kitchen table, lol) since I work from home.

My office space is now in our “closet room” which is a bedroom that we use as our closet because our closets are teeny tiny. We added a wall-mounted desk and a cute filing organizer and I feel so much less discombobulated when I’m working. It’s just so lovely to have my own space!

Jimmy also built a mesh wall rack to hang pots and pans in our kitchen.

He literally built that in a few hours. He never ceases to amaze me with his welding talent and creative abilities. Also, do you like our back door?! We need to add one more coat of paint, but I am loving the yellow! It makes it feel so sunny in our kitchen and I smile every time I see it.

Last but not least, we put a coat and shoe rack up in our basement for when we come home and need to take off our shoes and jackets. It definitely makes coming and going a lot more streamlined!

Do you use the winter months to take on indoor projects?

What’s your favorite type of coffee?



  1. I wish I did more projects, that’s for sure!! I’m not as organized or motivated as you are though!

  2. I love the coat and shoe rack! It’s simple but useful which is great. These probably don’t count as projects but we finally hung two pieces we received as Christmas gifts up. Nothing like over a month after receiving them to put them up ha.

  3. Starbucks coffee dates with Sadie sound like so much fun! 🙂

    I love Colombian coffee, and I always used to drink my coffee with milk, but now I rarely do or I have it with oat milk instead. I’ve also switched to drinking more espressos as they give me energy. Not too many though, or I get caffeine jitters haha.

    Love the coat and shoe rack! They look like a great way to stay organized. And the yellow door is cute!

  4. I’m with you on indoor home updates during the winter months! You have made so many great little updates around the house. And I think your Starbucks dates are so precious! What a wonderful little tradition. 🙂

    1. It’s the best to tackle those little updates! I have loved reading about your bathroom! The Starbucks dates have been so special! I always dreamed of doing stuff like that before I had Sadie and now to be doing it is just so cool 🙂
