fall favorites.

fall favorites.

when joelle proposed that everyone write about their fall favorites, i couldn't resist. this is one of my favorite seasons, & there is so much that i love about it (even in addition to what you see here). everyone go link up - i LOVE seeing what everyone else loves about this crisp, exciting time of year... it's so inspiring. and cozy. and everything else good, really. she is also giving away some of her fall favorites, which is think is amazingly lovely. i don't usually write about giveaways on my blog, but there's no way i could overlook this one! trust me, it's worth checking out & entering.

but now, back to the good stuff.

when the weather starts to turn cool, one of my favorite feelings in the whole world is pulling on some freakishly tall boots over my tights. i firmly believe that one of the very best things about this time of year is how comfy the clothes are allowed to be. the tops i've included above are enough to make me want to run out & scoop up a whole new wardrobe, filled with things just like them.

i'm also a really big fan of dark nail polish. in fact, i have to restrain myself from wearing it year-round. i actually used to wear it year-round, but i decided saving it up for the cooler months made it more special... you know, more like a treat, which i love.

speaking of treats, who can resist a pumpkin spice latte from starbucks? because i can't. nor can i resist any warm drinks, for that matter. they are the pinnacle of coziness & comfort to me. and what better way to enjoy a sweet, coffee confection, than from in front of a football game? whether viewed via television set, with friends & food, or bundled up in a stadium packed with screaming fans, this sport takes me back in time to beloved college days... as well as provides an arena for new - and even better - memories.

and please, don't even get me started on fall decor. i nearly shed a tear of happiness when pumpkins - especially ones such as the gorgeous twinkly pumpkins above - begin popping up on porches & in store fronts. at this point, all there's really left to do is light a warm, spicy candle, & you'll have me ooohing & ahhhing in delight.

I feel warm and cozy just having read this post! I really need to get myself a warm pumpkin spice latte since I am always getting them iced instead.

I love the twinkly pumpkins! And I feel the same way about dark nail polish. I always feel so chic and posh while wearing it! :)

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.
