friday's fancies #39 + friday's letters.

friday's fancies #39: mint julep.
ok, so my sister & anna claire called me on it: i don't even particularly care for mint juleps. but when {av} announced that this week's friday's fancies theme was to craft an outfit after one of your favorite summer treats, i knew i wanted to go with a mint-ish theme. i've been loving punches of green lately, so this kaliko shine bardot dress practically jumped onto my polyvore board without any effort of my part. these miu miu peep toes have been sitting in my favorite items for so long, just begging to be used, so of course, this time, i obliged. and admittedly, this brown-toned michael kors zip-around iphone wristlet doesn't really go with the black accents found in the shoes, but i can't really resist pretty much anything michael kors, so i didn't resist this either. everyone knows the that jewelry is always the icing on the cake, & this peridot ring absolutely fits that bill. not to mention, it's also my birth stone. bonus!
dear anna claire, we're going to have so much fun on our road trip tomorrow: sugar free red bull, playlists, dancing, singing, obnoxious amounts of picture taking... all the stuff of having a blast just getting there. i can't wait! dear jenny, i hope you're ready to rock out for your bachelorette party. dear new swim suit, it's true... i didn't want to buy you. but the truth is, i think you're pretty precious. dear kara, i couldn't be more excited that our new sing-along song is closing time. and it makes me want to watch friends with benefits. dear mollie jean, i love your rabbit kicks. dear justin, i miss you. i miss you. i miss you. i'm ready for wilmington. dear wilmington, i hope you're every bit as lovely as i'm remembering you. dear orange beach, get ready.
monday - christopher's.

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.
