I've seen these going around the internet and decided to jump on the bandwagon. I think they'll be quarterly/seasonal little check-ins for me...and it's always fun to look back at these things. Here goes nothing!
Making: endless lists of things to do, places to go, and goals to accomplish.
Cooking: nothing. Last night's (accidental) ten dozen pumpkin cookies with brown butter pumpkin spice frosting did me in!
Drinking: a "Happy Friday" glass of red wine.
Reading: Monologues from Shakespeare's "Henry V," dramatically, and in perfect iambic pentameter.
Wanting: darker curtains for my bedroom to sleep through the night a little better.
Looking: out my window across the rooftops to the park.
Playing: "1989" on repeat, just like every other basic white girl in the world this week (with dashes of "Frozen" to clinch my basic status).
Wasting: a perfectly good cucumber that went bad because I am too lazy to cook/forgot all about it in my sad vegetable drawer.
Wishing: to feel at peace with myself like this all the time.
Enjoying: my three mum plants, which have survived my black thumbs for almost a month now!
Waiting: to put laundry in the dryer once this interminable spin cycle ends.
Liking: the thought of playing a Halloween drinking game. I.E. "Drink every time a trick or treater dressed as Elsa shows up." Who's in?
Wondering: if there really is something wrong with my heat/AC or if I just have leaky cold-seeping windows.
Loving: that my parents finally get home from Europe in under 24 hours. So ready for a catchup session with my mom and my dad's goofy jokes.
Hoping: (wishfully thinking) for just a little more Indian summer.
Marveling: at how much my blog has grown this month.
Needing: to get off this laptop and get my butt in gear before tonight!
Smelling: my fall scent of choice on the inside of my wrist: Garden of Eden's Fig and Vanilla custom-blended.
Wearing: my basic girl uniform of Gap skinny jeans and a striped J.Crew top. Someone break me out of my rut please.
Following: a diet that will stop including fun-size candy bars the second this damn holiday is over.
Noticing: that my Jillian Michaels renaissance is paying off, just a little bit.
Knowing: that everything happens for a reason. (So trite, so true.)
Thinking: about how happy I am here in my beautiful home.
Bookmarking: This Taylor Swift Buzzfeed quiz. I'm "Fearless," obviously, because it's before she discovered straighteners.
Opening: up with more people and being a tiny bit more honest with myself about why.
Giggling: at "War Paint," a standup comedy album by Iliza Schlesinger that Laura introduced me to, on Spotify. SO funny.
Feeling: optimistic...nice to be back on track.
