Ultimate Coffee Date: December 2017

Hi everyone! What’s been going in your life? Pull up a chair and come catch up on life with me for the Ultimate Coffee Date!

Ultimate Coffee Date: December 2017

Ultimate Coffee Date: December 2017

If we were having tea today, I’d tell you that…I’d ask how your Thanksgiving went (if you celebrate). If you follow me on instagram or facebook, you probably kindasorta saw some of what I was up to over the past weekend! My friend Trish invited me to stay with her over the holiday weekend since I actually wasn’t working(!), and we had all sorts of delicious food! <3

Friendsgiving 2017

Friday was Friendsgiving!


I even had a nojito! (Seltzer water, mint, grilled pineapple.)


Isn’t this cookie adorable!?

If we were having tea today, I’d tell you that…I haven’t run in about 6 years, but once upon a time, I ran a half marathon. My friend asked me yesterday if I wanted to run a half marathon with her next year, and I agreed, soI guess I’m running again. I’ve only been spending the last 6 years saying I’d start again. 😛


This gives me more reason to use/try out the rest of Gixo’s classes though now that I’m finally doing cardio again!

If we were having tea today, I’d tell you that…it appears I’m always surrounded by cats, haha. I tried to apologize to Mack (Trish’s cat) because Muffin beat him up last year (she weighs maybe 7 pounds but is still a bully), but he wasn’t havin’ it.

My shoulder got claimed for a while though!

If we were having tea today, I’d tell you that…I know I’m super behind on my Travel Tuesday posts, but…I just added another one to my list of posts I need to write (sigh, haha).

My friend Hamidah and I recently went on a hike to the tallest waterfall in NJ–Buttermilk Falls! It started raining kinda hard so we didn’t hike as long as we’d hoped, so I suppose it means we’ll just have to go back! 😛

    Woo hoo! I’m excited that you’re going to run a half marathon next year. It’s not like there aren’t a few of us around to help you…if you need it!

    Are you working the holidays? Will you get to go home to see your family?

      haha, yeah! It should definitely be an interesting challenge–we’ll see how it goes, and I’m glad I have an awesome community around me for help if needed! :]

      I’m going to be working in the hospital for the holidays this year. I requested last Christmas/New Year’s off and got it, so I figured I’d let someone else have a chance this time around. I’ll be seeing my family in May during my next vacation though!

      Thank you! Hopefully it’ll go well! I think I may or may not have patellofemoral syndrome–my knee’s been kinda acting up lately but fingers crossed that it stops doing that soon!

      Thanks for hosting! :]

    Your Thanksgiving sounds wonderful and the food looks so good! I hope you have fun training for a half marathon! I’m trying to decide my next hair style…I haven’t tried anything new in a while!

      Thanks! I’m going to try to make it fun! 😛

      haha, I’m with you there! I feel like I’ve had roughly the same hairstyle since the age of 13! 😛

  4. Shannon @GirlsGotSole

    Congrats on getting back into running! You’ve gotta re-start somewhere, sounds like your friend got the momentum going! Let me know if you need any pointers. 🙂

    1. Farrah

      Thanks, Shannon! I’ve been telling myself to incorporate some cardio back into my life for years, so this will be good for me! 😛 Much appreciated! <3

  5. Jennifer @ Fit Nana

    Hooray for half-marathons!! They’re fun – especially with friends! 🙂

    Longest time without sleeping? Hmm….that would be many many moons ago when I was active duty and standing watches and working, etc. Thank goodness I don’t have to do that any more!!

    Right now, I get my hair cut every four weeks but it’s short so I need to. 6 weeks is just too long with a short hairstyle. I go in phases between “grow it out” and “chop it all off.” LOL. I went short back in August after growing it out for more than a year. We’ll see it/when the growing bug resurfaces. haha

      They’re definitely better with friends! I’m not sure I’d ever run one without one! 😛

      Oh man. I’m glad you don’t either! That definitely doesn’t sound like a fun time! :[

      hahaha, good luck! I’ve always had long hair so I basically get it cut every 1-2 years (I know, I know ._.). Yay for consistency…? Hehh.

    Welcome back to running!! I’m excited to follow you on your 13.1 journey…since you’ve done a 13.1 before, it might be a great refresher 😉

    1. Farrah

      Thanks so much! It’ll pretty much have been about 8 years by the time I get to this, so definitely a refresher of sorts, haha. 😛

      I think we’re planning for the Brooklyn one in September right now, but not entirely sure! (I might have interviews during that time, but we shall see!)

    Lately I’ve been all about interior design. After redoing my office, my friends have had me over to help redecorate everything from kids bedrooms to kitchens and I’m loving it haha.

      That sounds like fun! I’d love to have my own space someday to decorate! :]

    I am trying to re-pick up old hobbies before I start any new ones 😛 But if I had the time/money for a new hobby right now, I’d probably take figure skating classes.

    1. Farrah

      hahaha, I’m prettttty terrible about picking up 2347029487204 hobbies and never dropping the old ones. I wish I had more time in a day!! :'(

      Figure skating would definitely be a fun one! <3

    That’s great you had a nice Thanksgiving with a friend. And aww, I wouldn’t mind being surrounded by cats! Too cute. 🙂

    I am ALL FOR the cute food -but that doesn’t stop me from eating it! Ha! I also feel like food gets so much cuter during this time of year. Then again, everything just gets BETTER during this time of year!
    And nope, no new hobbies here. Honestly, my husband has asked me a lot what my hobbies are and er um, I can’t I really have any. Weird right?! I have too much ADD to do one thing for a long period of time.

    1. Farrah

      haha, I’m all for cute food as well! I’m a fan of the food this time of year, but definitely not of the cold!

      Blogging and eating count as hobbies! 😛
