a lovely little weekend.

i'm not going to lie:
i've been extremely spoiled this weekend.

i've had starbucks three days in a row.
and today, we got it for free.
but don't worry - 
i have nearly cried tears of thankfulness
at these pops through that beloved, caffeine-laden drive through.
the privilege of this situation is not lost on me.

other delicacies we've enjoyed on this road trip weekend
include strawberry banana smoothies from cafe brava,

authentic japanese fare at genki,

& the most delicious mexican lunch at azteca.

and don't even get me started on the caramel popcorn & cherry coke
we enjoyed while seeing 21 jump street at the carmike theater.

or the home cooked buffet we experienced at mccall's,
complete with steaming fruit cobblers & soft-serve ice cream.

but food wasn't the only main event; there was also shopping.
pfgs, button-ups, & sweaters for justin.
neon, dresses, feather & arrow earrings, & spring time sandals for me.

and all of those lovely little events, as well as some others,
have brought me to now... sitting on the couch with justin,
watching florida baseball, enjoying a glass of wine,
and biding my time until i hit the gym...

happy, happy sunday!

How did you get free Starbucks?! I'm super jealous. That's a serious treat. Not to mention you had it 3 days in a row! That's an A+ weekend in my book.

Free Starbucks...always fantastic! I just became a gold member at Starbucks this week...not sure if that's a good thing or not. :)
I've had to back off on the frequent Starbucks visits myself, so I understand your excitement with multiple visits in a few days! My boyfriend and I are going on a trip at the end of May and I'm already counting on many Sbux stops. :)
sounds like a fun weekend! it's always good when theres yummy food involved. and cherry coke...delish!

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.
