eating-a-late-breakfast currents.

today's post brought to you over a late breakfast of nutella toast & black coffee.

ok, that's a lie.
i scarfed down the toast while my computer was loading.
but i am still drinking the coffee.
and it was a very, very late breakfast.
reading the final pages of dracula. y'all, this book has restored my faith in classics. and you can read more about it in july's critique cache anchor post, coming next week. 
writing out lists of posts for this week, as well as a miles-long to-do list. did you happen to know that i am the world's worst procrastinator? well, i am.
listening to the hum of the air conditioner. and wondering why that hum isn't replaced with some tunes.
thinking i'm really enjoying the blogging rhythm i've fallen into as of late. i finally feel like my blog is expressing my personality... know what i mean? sometimes it's hard to put yourself down on paper internet.
smelling a freshly-brewed cup of coffee. is there any better scent in the world?
wishing confirmation of my summer plans would come. i'm not good at being in limbo. nor am i good at limbo in general anymore. i used to be. 
hoping for the best. keeping a positive, non-stressed attitude is my biggest goal for the week. that, & working out every single day.
wearing an alpha chi omega rush t-shirt. it's red, with louisiana tech university in big white block letters.
loving that our wedding is almost only three months away!
wanting a starbucks to be down the street from me. and sooner - rather than later - this may be a reality.
needing to remember to be thankful. sometimes i get caught up in a lot of meaningless frivolity & forget what's important. 
feeling much better today, after the shot of nyquil i took before bed. i hate being sick. but it always happens with major temperature changes. and, boy, it's been hot around here in recent days.
clicking the weekend jams list over on wishful thinking - i absolutely adore when people post their current listens. i may do a post this week or next. oh & also, picmonkey, which i found out about over on living in yellow. i love discovering new photo editing sites - you can never have too many, in my opinion.

love the smell of coffee and I love making lists. I think I procrastinate from doing the things I need to do because I'm so busy making my to do list!

I seriously LIVE for Nutella, and I love today's post!

I was just telling a friend over the weekend that I need to be more thankful, because life gets so hectic and we get caught up in the midst of it all, and often take the people/things around us for granted.

only three months till the wedding? well i'll have to stick around and see wedding plans :)
excited to be your newest follower!
ps. nutella is the best :)

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.
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.
