mid-week currents: sales, travels, & stress.


reading may's instyle
though i am saving most of it for my flights on friday. 

writing the chronicle of my career. you can see the first installment here.

listening to a mix of artists 
some of my dearest friends suggested. they include james morrison, ed sheeran, 
jj grey and mofro, lionel richie, walk the moon (really love tightrope), a silent film, & james vincent mcmorrow 
(really love if i had a boat & breaking hearts).

thinking about everything i need to do today. it's quite a list, i'll tell ya that much. 
but my run is going to come first. exercise has been my priority as of late.

smelling my coconut oil infused hair. i've been using coconut oil as a moisturizer 
in both my hair & skin about once a week, for about a month now. a shout out goes to nikki phillippi on youtube for that recommendation. thank you! [watch this video]

wishing for safe travels in a couple days as we head to our hometown. so excited to see everyone!

hoping everything in the remaining year works out. i'm hopeful, but a bit stressed at times.

wearing my favorite comfortable pants, from target. these are seriously some of the best pants 
i've ever bought. find them here. also, an sae jersey. you know, my uniform... 

loving the awesome sale i caught at walgreens yesterday. thanks to that, i will be trying 
got2b's fat-tastic instant collagen infusion mega-lift root-bootsting spray, 
as well as suave's dry shampoo (which i've heard rave reviews on)... all for $6.

wanting this weight to fall right on off. i've been working hard. i'm seeing results, 
but ready to see it translated to the scale as well. know what i mean?

needing to really get started on my to-do list. there is quite a lot to accomplish today, 
ranging from exercise, to cooking dinner (which i'm really excited about, as i'm making 
stuffed bell peppers - one of my favorites!), as well as applying for some jobs. 
like i said, a full plate today. all things i want to do, though, so that definitely softens the blow.

feeling sore, sore, sore. but that's a good thing. right? yes. it is.

I know what you mean about wanting to see results on the scale. I've been too lazy lately and today I decided it's time to take charge of my body again and I'm getting back in shape. We can do this! :)

Side note...I'm flying on Friday too and I've been saving all of the magazines I've gotten lately for my flight.

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…

the sunday currently, volume 124.

beautiful flowers all around vail
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.
wearing pajamas, just like I have …

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.
