Coffee Date | No. 18

Happy Sunday, friends. I know a bit delayed by a few days in getting this coffee date posted but better late than never, right?! How has your weekend been going? The husbands birthday is this week so we kicked off the celebrations Friday night. 

I've currently got a lovely cup of coffee next to me as I write this post, the husbands favorite chocolate chip pancakes are on the griddle, and then I'm planning on meeting a friend later this morning for more coffee. Coffee dates are the best aren't they? So let's get ours started before I burn a set of pancakes.

Coffee and clothes

I just started working on a blog and I am planning on launching soon. I'm curious how many hours per week you spend blogging? Congratulations! Choosing to start something that is important to you is a big deal. I can't really pinpoint exactly how many hours I spend on SMT. Mainly because there are a lot of other aspects to the blog for instance like social media and promoting posts. Basically most of my free time is spent doing something for SMT. I'm working on a few exciting projects so that takes up time as well. What I will say is that what you put in, you get out. 

Do you have suggestions for a good concealed carry belt? I don't currently use a dedicated CCW belt. The one I have is from Rag and Bone and I looked high and low for non-specific carry belt where the leather was sturdy enough to hold my holster. I haven't had any issues with it but I also only wear it when I'm carrying. I know a few IG friends that love the One Shot Industries Belt, Blade Tech, and Blue Alpha Gear. I personally want to check the three I mentioned and see how they are. The few that I have tried from other brands are so thick, stiff, and are just not cute.

You always have really cute camo clothes and make them look so cute. Do you have suggestions for some camo items under $100? Thank you. Actually with fall around the corner you can't beat a camo field jacket (also here and here), some camo t's (also here and here), or a pair of camo jeans (also here, and here). Now obviously I wouldn't wear them all together but they are great statement pieces that you can wear all year round.

Have you made any mods to your Glock 43? If so, can you share what they are and the companies you used? I haven't done any customizing to it or changed any of the factory parts out. However, just the other day on Instagram, I saw a rose gold barrel from True Precision that I want and it got me thinking that I really need to do some customizing to mine. I've seen some really cool G43s that makes mine look lame. Haha. 

This is kind of random question but I'm running out of ideas. My wedding anniversary is next month and I'm at a loss as to what to do withmy husband. He loves to shoot and has a Glock 19 but he tends to buy what he needs for his gun and hobby when he needs it. Happy Anniversary to you both. That's how the husband and I are as well in terms of things we want or need, we just get them when it's time. We stopped exchanging anniversary/birthday gifts a few years into our relationship. What we try to do know is focus on experiences rather than a material objects. However, don't get me wrong, I'm not one to turn away gift (ahem, nice bag) if he so chooses. Try creating fun memories together whether it be taking a weekend getaway, taking a cooking class, or taking him on a day adventure of things he likes to do. If that's not something you're into, how about signing him up for a shooting class or course where different skills are learned. Like moving and shooting or something like that. A few other options are new EDC knife, a carry backpack, or some men's grooming supplies. 


I hope you all have a great weekend and as always thanks so much for sending in your questions. This is one of my favorites to post about every month. And if you've got a question don't be shy, send them over via the contact pageDM on InstagramFB, or email.
