A Coffee Date

Hello, my name is Kasey and I have a real problem following rules. Admitting you have the problem is the first step right? I've been such a space cadet this week, so obviously today won't be any different. I did get a surprise hair cut this morning. Obviously, nothing drastic because I'm a scaredy cat and very attached to my side braid. ANYWAYS. Today's WOD prompt is about if you could have coffee with anyone, who would it be + why? But really I want to have coffee with all of y'all! So I'm combining that, hashtag humpday, and that fun "if we were having coffee.." thing that's going around. 
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I have no idea where to start in the whole preparing for this trip to Europe thing. Like I know I need to get my act together, but what do I wear? What do I pack? The horror stories about pickpockets have me really freaked out. Like is someone going to try to rip my camera off my shoulder? Okay. maybe I should switch to something without caffeine.. #fullpanicmode

If we were having coffee, I would probably whine about how we had to turn the AC on in the apartment last night because it was eighty degrees. I had all the windows open and fans on and it was just too much. I love that it's spring right now but I did not even a little bit want to turn the stupid AC on. #ugh.
If we were having coffee, I would probably shout randomly in the middle of my own sentence that I could just die, because I hit 30,000 views yesterday and I #literallycannoteven. 
If we were having coffee, I'd have to confess I haven't started any holiday shopping. I mean I know kinda what I want to get/do for everyone, but I'm woefully unprepared for it to be December right now. #notevenready
If we were having coffee, I'd tell you how pumped I am for the Atlanta Bloggers tacky sweater party. Also that I have three tacky sweater parties to attend in the same week and I am happier than a pig in mud. #sweatersfordaaaayyyyssss 
If we were having coffee, you probably would have already seen the shaky picture of my bar progress. I'd also brag about how I made a hashtag for it because, social media y'all. #deckerbarcart

If we were having coffee, I'd have to get up and dance around when Shake It Off inevitably came on the radio, then I'd admit that in the car, I've been listening to 1989 on repeat. Every day. I've listened to it a gazillion times and I am very not sorry. #danceparty
haters gonna hate hate hate
Obviously, if you'll let me, I'll talk your ear off. I'd probably talk at a Gilmore Girls speed because this would be my like 4th cup of coffee and MAN would I be hyper. What would you tell me if we were having coffee? 

#Hashtaghumpday @ Life with LoloWrite or Die Wednesdays


  1. I'm sorry it was 80 degrees by you????? WHERE ARE YOU AND WHEN CAN I MOVE IN?!?!?! It was 17 degrees when I woke up this morning - I live in NY.

    Also - I love the Gilmores gif - I love Gilmore Girls ANYTHING

  2. Hahaha, I love all of your gifs! Especially the Chandler one and the Elf one! Congrats on 30,000 views, so awesome!! I haven't really started Christmas shopping yet either, I have like, one present so far.

  3. Sounds like coffee with you would be fun. Maybe when I write up my own Write or Die post, I'll write about having coffee with you :-)
    True confession: I am so far behind on the whole Christmas gift process that I might have to postpone Christmas to next year.
    Congrats on 30K views. Couldn't have happened to a nicer person.

  4. You definitely sound like a fun coffee date, Kasey! I love the Write or Die link up, I may join you guys!

  5. Hahaha, love the Cougar Town gif. I can't say no to liquor either! And I really need to get with the times and get 1989. Everybody seems to love it and I need it in my life. :) Thanks so much for linking up with us, you rock, you little rebel! ;)

  6. Kasey, you are too much fun! I love this mash-up.

    I would LOVE a coffee date with all of you awesome ladies.

    First of all, do you think you could fit me in your luggage for Europe? I lived in Germany for 3 years and I am dying, dying, dying to go back to Europe. Seriously, I might die if I don't get there soon enough.

    I totally feel your pain about the temperature/season. Living in Hawaii is slowly but surely killing my love for the holiday season.

    Finally, three ugly sweater parties?? I'm jealous. That sounds like so much fun, and I am in dire need of some fun. And I'm sure no matter how ugly your sweaters are, you'll still be "smokin'" (Really, we've got to keep this joke alive.)

    :) Thanks for linking up! Always love having you in our company!!

  7. This is so cute! We have the air conditioning on constantly here in Florida. My husband whines when I want to turn it off but then complains that it's too cold #likereally? Thanks for linking up!

  8. P.S. My post is up, Kasey. Sorry, I replaced you for my coffee date :-(

  9. 1. No one is going to rip your camera off your shoulder. just keep your hot mess self together and stay aware of what is going on and you will be time. Make sure you have copies of your passport and other important things - drivers license, credit card, etc. stashed away in one of your bags just in case or you will get stuck there (okay, not a bad thing). Don't trust people who walk up to you and ask if you speak English, they are probably gypsies and will ask you for money after they tell you their life story.

    2. PACK NEUTRALS. I can't stress this enough because 1. that's all they wear. 2. it's easier to make multiple outfits out of a smaller amount of clothes. Also pack a foldable bag (think longchamp) to put in your smaller one in case you buy a lot of stuff and can't fit it all in the bags you brought :) Don't even bother bringing heels of any sort, you will fall and die on the sidewalk. I did it. It was bad. REEEEEEEEEEEEAL bad.

  10. hahaha you are so sweet! I'll have to go check it out! I'm totally on board with postponing Christmas! haha

  11. oh man. it was miserable though. we couldn't get the air to circulate or anything. our neighbors must keep their heat at like 80 because it's never cool in our apartment! I love the Gilmore Girls too!!!!

  12. you're one ahead of me! I'm starting to think maybe I'll just bake some cookies or something. isn't being my friend a present enough? haha

  13. you totally should! it's such a fun little group!!

  14. SUCH a solid album. I'm not even mad that she's making people buy it. Blank Space + Style are my jams, obviously after Shake it Off

  15. haha I've found out that I get to check my bags fo'free, so maybe you can fit in my luggage! I'm pretty sure I'm going to go over there + never want to come back. I would LOVE to live abroad for a couple years.

    I honestly would be okay if it stayed warm always, I get cold super easy. I just need it to regulate... haha!

    YES ALL THE UGLY SWEATER PARTIES! I also am "running" the Ugly Sweater 5k. Can't. Get. Enough.

  16. hahahaha that sounds like such a man thing to do though!

  17. 1. you know I'm a space cadet and a nervous Nellie. I'm just hoping I'll blend in + look more like a photographer or something than a tourist. I'm sure the tour guide won't give us away...

    2. that's what I'm thinking. lots of layers that I can mix + match. probably lots of black because that's what I own the most of...

  18. just don't make eye contact with french dudes (they take it the wrong way) and walk with purpose and you'll blend in! also no tennis shoes..they're a dead giveaway :)

  19. your gifs are always the best. I wish I could be more help w/ Europe... my best advise is try not to repeat "Eurotrip" IRL.
    Now let's go get coffee before you leave aaaand since I'm SUPER bummed about the Atl Blogger meetup being on a TUESDAY #poutyMelissa

  20. I spend a lot of my life searching for the perfect gif, let's be real. BOO that you can't make it to the party. #sadface

  21. so you're saying my glow in the dark neon running shoes would be a bad choice?

  22. I took one of those under your shirt slim fanny packs to Europe because I was super paranoid and I didn't ever really need it. As long as you have a purse that zips all the way and you keep it close to your body, you're golden. I'm also super stoked for ugly sweater parties this year and have already purchased 2 via the thriftshop that are, in my opinion, spectacular. Oooooooooh I just got THE BEST IDEA for a link up/blog party! Ugly/tacky sweater theme!! How fun would that be to have everyone post their pictures? Ok - see if we had coffee we'd both talk non stop... haha

  23. that's what I'm hoping. I'll have to find something with a zipper! ALSO THAT WOULD BE SUCH A FUN LINK UP AND WE COULD INCORPORATE INSTAGRAMS TOO. I bet we would have super productive talkative coffee dates!
