love lists: september.

september has been a month of immense stress, what with the promise of this event on the quickly-approaching horizon. but that doesn't mean i haven't had time to rack up a list of things i've been loving in this autumn month...

1. sparkly, festive party dresses.
i picked up two dresses from francesca's collections this month, one for my shower, & one for my rehearsal dinner. obviously, i can't post a photo of the rehearsal dinner one, but this post showcases the one i wore for the shower. there is absolutely nothing like wearing a sparkly, twirly, princess dress. i talked a little more about that here.
2. starbucks pumpkin spice lattes.
honestly, no explanation is really needed, except that i love these things. i really do.
3. the autumn season.
candy corn. the sparkly halloween wreath on our door. boots.
4. sinful colors nail polish in leap flog.
may i present to you: the jade manicure.
5. spoiled nail polish in i don't drink cheap wine.
because there is little better than wine-inspired manicures.
6. the re-discovery of my green & teal earrings.
these things practically glow in my earlobes. and i like that.
7. tyler candle in dolce vita.
all i need to take me back to late afternoon sun streaming in the windows at our quaint kinston apartment.
8. my family shower.
as mentioned above, read more here & here.
9. my engagement ring.
i didn't think it was possible, but i've fallen even more in love with my ring this month. maybe it's because my wedding is coming up. maybe it's because our engagement anniversary is coming up. either way, i can't keep my eyes of that beautiful bauble. see it here.
10. colgate optic white toothpaste.
this stuff has aided me in prepping my smile to be wedding ready.

and now october is right around the corner... & that means wedding month!

I love francesca's- I always find the best dresses there. I agree with all of these- especially pumpkin spice lattes and fun wine colored polish for fall!
I also still LOVE my engagement ring 3 years later!

1. I too just got a sparkly dress from there - I'm going to laugh at our good taste if it's the same dress :) Either way, I know you will look absolutely stunning!!

2. AAAAMEN to the pumpkin-ness. I don't do coffee, so I put mine in chai, but just YUM!

4. I actually ordered that color after I saw it on you :) Thanks for the suggestion!

9. Your engagement ring is beautiful and I'm SURE that as you get closer and closer, you will love it even more!

xo :) sorry this is like a book!
I love Francesca's too! Thankfully we don't have one in my home mall, or else I'd buy everything. When I stop by, though, I have to get something! I can't wait to see your rehearsal dress Lauren :)

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.
