lunch time currents.

reading graceling... still. it's not that i don't like it. i just can't get into it enough to sit & read for hours. i need to wrap it up, though... because the september book club selection is where we belong, by emily giffin.
writing immense wedding to-do lists. we're getting organized & are ready to tackle the remaining tasks!
listening to the hum of an office at work.
thinking that i really hate politics. and that it's total crap that gas prices are about to go up simply because there is a hurricane.
smelling my coworker's cup of coffee, sitting on the desk beside me. and it's making me anticipate the coffee i'm going to brew shortly.
wishing for a complete accept/decline list for the wedding.
hoping that hurricane isaac leaves my family's & friends' houses alone - in fact, that he will leave everyone & everything alone.
wearing scrubbie scrubs. and sperry's. and fall-time nail polish.
loving my family. and friends. and how they are always there to help me.
wanting to find out if we are still going to be able to trek to gulf shores this weekend. if that isn't going to work out, i think dallas or hot springs would be fun.
needing to guzzle water today. i'm off to a decent start.
feeling sore from working out. and proud of that fact.
clicking this post by wily brunette. and this one. and i have been reading & re-reading this post on ashore. those girls never disappoint & never fail to inspire. thank you.

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.
