friday's fancies #11: black friday, fire-side.

friday's fancies #11: black friday, fire-side.

this week's theme for friday's fancies over on {long distance loving} is black friday. truth be told, i don't really do black friday shopping. it has never really appealed to me: hour-long waits to get into stores, hour-long waits to try on the not-so-heavily-discounted items i may have had to fight to claim... you get the picture. i did go black friday shopping once at polo in dallas, & that was actually nice. maybe next year i'll give it another go. but this year...

if i had my way, this year's black friday would be spent with a fire in the fire place, in front of a movie marathon (preferably including the holiday), with justin. since he is in north carolina, this idea will have to stay hypothetical. but if that is what i were doing today, i would want to wear this precious phillip lim reindeer merino wool-blend sweater. i think it's the perfect amount of festive & cozy, which is perfect, since the christmas season officially begins today. for the past few weeks, i've been transfixed by black denim skinny jeans... there's only one problem: i don't currently own any. i plan to change that soon, but for now i'll just pretend these paige black verdugo ultra skinny jeans belong to me. along with the disposal of my 3-year-old uggs in a recent closet purge, comes the yearning for a new pair. these bailey button bombers would do the trick. 

merry christmas season!

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.
