Fast forward to the present. I ran into her a few weeks ago at the same mutual friend's baby shower, and she was laughing and smiling the whole time we talked. She only stayed for a little bit, but she suggested that we exchanged contacts and asked for my number. I suggested that we get a coffee sometime and she said yes.
I texted her the next day and said that it was nice talking to her. She replied hours later saying sorry for the late reply, that she was busy, and asked how to spell my name since she thought she might've saved it wrong. I answered her question and tried to make small talk but she didn't reply. I texted again two days later inviting her out to get a coffee and she replied within 5 minutes saying "Hey ___. For sure. I'm usually busy at work on Saturdays but if it turns out slow then for sure and I'll let you know". Saturday passes and nothing so I text her the following Tuesday night asking what her schedule was like for this week and she replied the next day "Hey ___! Im so so sorry for not replying…. but I'm working until Saturday and then going out of town until Tuesday morning." I then asked what day worked for her next week. It's been 24 hours and no reply. I'm really confused and am wondering if I should move on since I'm starting to feel like I look desperate. Any advice?

I feel like she would have given you a more definite alternative if she was really interested. Who knows, maybe she'll surprise you and do just that, but yeah I'd move on for now. If she replies, cool, but I'd just leave it to her to set something up if she wants to.
