back-in-kinston currents.


reading dracula, by bram stoker. and i couldn't possibly be more in love with it. i was so pleasantly surprised by this classic, as the last classic i attempted reading - wuthering heights - is still collecting dust on my bookshelf, having been only half-read. what i'm saying is, i. love. dracula.
writing in my beautiful new set of notebooks. if you're anything like me, pretty writing utensils always inspires me to get creative. i picked up a set of three compendium notebooks at target in shreveport, & they are just what the doctor ordered. i'm also working on thank-yous - can't wait to write about my shower!
listening to gilmore girls on a continuous loop. medicine for the soul. it really is.
thinking today is a bit of a wasted day. what have i done? watched a lot of gilmore girls, drank a lot of coffee [it's only fitting, don't you think?], & called the north carolina department of transportation. i guess that's at least one productive thing. so, not totally wasted. but close.
smelling great since i finally got to shower yesterday - being in the same clothes for over 24 hours does not do well for your self-confidence. my flight out of shreveport ended up getting way delayed on wednesday, since there was bad weather in dallas. i ended up getting stuck in dallas for the night - once we got there - & luckily i was able to shack with my future brother- & sister-in-law. i got to shower at their house, but i had to put the same clothes back on [this is where i start to understand the always pack a clean change of clothing in your carry-on speech]. needless to say, it was so great to roll up into kinston yesterday afternoon, jump in that shower, & put on a fresh set of clothes. 
wishing i didn't feel so scatter-brained today. 
hoping i wake up tomorrow with a renewed sense of purpose - purpose to clean the house, that is. and work out. 
wearing my well-worn-in purple millsaps sweat shirt that kara gave me for christmas a couple years ago. and workout shorts. wishful thinking? i'm also wearing darker hair. which i love.
loving my new link-up! justin & i were discussing the things we miss most about shreveport, & the book club i was a part of definitely shows up on that list! thus, the thought process behind critique cache - it's a monthly book & music review link-up. the rules? just write a post about something you've read or listened to in the last month, then link up! it'll be a great way to discover new reads & listens. 
wanting chinese food for dinner. even though i had it for lunch. addictive personality, right here.
needing a nap. but i keep guilting myself out of it.
feeling sleepy. could you tell?
----> NEW: clicking all of bethany's travel posts. when i was delayed at the airport, it was comforting to read that i wasn't alone! plus, i can't wait to read about her kuwait adventures. also? suri's burn book. i can't get enough of 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…

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.
