Inventory: Fall 2015

Making: an excessive amount of notes for my weekly Monday morning insurance seminar.

Cooking: later, for dinner, probably a frittata or maybe a quiche if I’m feeling wild.

Drinking: the last pod’s worth of my Pumpkin Spice Keurig coffee.

Reading: To Kill a Mockingbird, with the intention of proceeding to Go Set a Watchman afterward even though I’ve heard it’s terrible.

Wanting: to get back to Toronto someday and actually spend some time exploring that gorgeous city. 

Looking: at “Kate Middleton” Google results, as usual, oh god I need a life.

Playing: hooky to work from home.

Listening: to my insurance class, but later to this amazing playlist from Eva’s engagement party.

Wishing: for absolutely everything in Anthropologie right now.

Enjoying: our very extended, very beautiful fall here in MN.

Waiting: anxiously for Ohio State and Hartford and Boston and London trips.

Liking: this amazing recipe for kale, white bean and meatball soup that my mom made last night (which I can’t wait to re-heat for dinner forever thanks to her generous policy with leftovers).

Wondering: whether I’ll be able to get last-minute tickets to the Minnesota Opera’s production of “The Magic Flute” in a few weeks.

Hoping: to sneak down to the gym over lunch.


Marveling: at this morning’s insane fall-back sunrise.

Needing: to go get all my artwork from Paris framed, mounted, and added to my gallery wall.

Smelling: my new lavender shampoo and my apple pie candle.

Wearing: my pajamas, still, tee hee!

Following: French chateaux on Instagram (Favorites: Versailles and the Chateau Gudanes).

Noticing: the birds in Loring Park on their pilgrimage south.

Knowing: way too much about different levels and technicalities of personal insurance lines.

Thinking: that I need more clever retorts to the Fantasy Football smack talk currently dominating my workdays (currently 6-2 and tied for second, awwww yesssss). 

Bookmarking: bridesmaids’ dresses for Eva’s wedding, woo hoo!

Giggling: at my insurance class instructor’s insanely thick New York accent.

Feeling: excited and giddy and a little apprehensive and a lot hopeful.
