starbucks sunday: remember the time luke wilson made me cry?

this is me, enjoying starbucks sunday at barnes & noble, while studying for the GRE updating my blog. thank you, mr. barista man, for spelling my name wrong. one would think 'lauren' is one of the most common of names for a girl, but with my track record (which includes being called 'juan' while ordering takeout over the phone), i have learned that this is most certainly not the case.

this is me, showing off my new book, which was purchased only moments before this photo was taken. i am also sipping on my tall iced nonfat caramel macchiato. this also happens to be a photograph of me being a huge dork in public, and not really caring about it (even though there are people on literally every side of me studying. or taking pictures of themselves. who can really say?).

this is me, laughing because i'm taking photo booth pictures of myself in barnes & noble. i'm also laughing at myself for crying when luke wilson wouldn't take a picture with me when i spotted him in a bar this weekend.

nope, i'm not kidding. oh, how i wish i were.

at least it wasn't owen.

Coffee and book shops! Two of my all time favourite things! I do stuff like that in public too, so don't feel bad!

Hello gorgeous! I love your hair and makeup! Starbucks is definitely one of my fave places to go to, especially on a really hot day. My usual order is normally the Cinnamon Dulce Latte but unfortunately, since I moved to the Philippines I haven't had my Cinnamon Dulce Latte in ages. Starbucks said it is only exclusive to the U.S., thus I've had to be content with whatever they had here.

about me.

Hello! And welcome to siddathornton.
My name is Lauren. I am 29 years old. Here are a few random factoids about me & my life...
- I'm originally from Louisiana, but I live in North Carolina with my husband, Justin. We aren't from New Orleans. Every time we tell someone we're from Louisiana, this is immediately what they assume. We actually come from a town in northwest Louisiana - Shreveport - which may as well be Texas, it's so close to the state line.
- Due to my love of the written word, I majored in Journalism at Louisiana Tech University. Tech is located in the quaint town of Ruston, Louisiana, and I like to think that attending college in a small town shaped much of who I am today. And as much as I would have liked the overly-romaticized dream of becoming a professional writer to have come to fruition for me, I'm in the midst of a career change, via occupational therapy school.
- There are a few things for which I have an unhealthy obsession: reading, co…

readingFierce, by Aly Raisman. A couple of weeks ago, I finally finished Big Little Lies, by Liane Moriarty, which I really enjoyed.
writing a lot in my bullet journal, including adding photos and keepsakes. It's been a while since I've done this kind of journaling, and it really is my favorite.
listening to the Office while typing out this blog post. Nothing makes me feel better like this show does.
thinking that I am really glad that Justin and I built in some trip recovery time on the back end of our trek to Colorado. It really does take some time to get re-acclimated to the time zone you've returned to. We've both been feeling so tired since we got back.
smelling coffee and donuts. The breakfast of champions.
wishing for some tortilla soup today. I had some at a place called Hacienda Colorado in Denver. It was so good, and I've been craving it ever since.
hoping for a productive and joyful week ahead.

the sunday currently.

When I started blogging on siddathornton back in July of 2011, the beginning of my currently posts wasn't far off. I've long enjoyed compiling lists of what's going on in the moment, but I never thought about making it a link-up or an always-on-Sundays thing until September 16, 2012. As you can read in that post, I was elated, due to the responses I was getting from other bloggers, letting me know that they, too were doing "currently" posts and had decided to dedicate the writing of them to Sundays each week. Thus, The Sunday Currently was born, and I have currently penned over 100 posts, some with over 50 people linking up and sharing what they're up to, too. If you feel so inclined, please join! Let's celebrate the little moments of our lives that we never want to forget.
