the sunday currently, volume 1.

here's something that makes me happy: 

i have been getting a lot of response
on my 'currently' posts, as well as people letting me know that they have been doing their own lists. for those reasons, i've decided to write a 'currently' post of my own each sunday, & then include a place for y'all to link up your posts if you'd like. i've thought about making these posts an every-sunday thing in the past, & when ashley mentioned that she may do that, i decided i would too. thank you all so much for your positive comments & encouragement.
reading the happiness project, by gretchen rubin. yes, that's right - that means that i pretty much speed-read where we belong, by emily giffin. and i loved it! critique cache post coming soon on that.
writing a million addresses on a million invitations. ok, maybe not quite that many, but it certainly felt like it as my hand cramped up this afternoon.
listening to frasier, on dvd. the ultimate in comforting television.
thinking that this year has been one of the most stressful of my life! i'm thankful for all the happy changes & events that have occurred [and are left to occur], but my blood pressure feels like it is sky-rocketing at present. i'm so ready for october 13.
smelling absolutely nothing. my nose doesn't always work the best.
wishing for a good night's sleep. tomorrow, it's time to wake up & get back to work. i'm really excited to go back to work, but i think i could also do with a day where all i have to do is catch up on sleep.
hoping the last few details of wedding planning go smoothly.
wearing a long-sleeved black & white striped shirt & some green & white polka-dotted pajama pants. pattern mixing at its best.
loving all the television that's available on netflix. now, just to decide what show's up next on my instant queue. i watched the pilot episode of the wonder years tonight. i loved it, but it made me so emotional! i need something light & uplifting for right now, i think.
wanting a huge pitcher of water.
needing to take a big chill pill. i let myself get so worked up over stress. the battle to manage it rages on.
feeling... can you guess? i've talked about it enough in this post for the entire week. yep, that's right, you guessed it - stressed!
clicking a whole bunch of new blogs! here are my favorites: piloting life, his little lady, daniella marie, & a snapshot of life.

here's to a week of happiness, peace, & productivity.

Love this little sweet. Hope you are having a lovely weekend.

yay - so glad you're doing a link-up for this! I had such fun doing my first currently over the summer. (I did credit you!) will do another one next weekend and will tag along :)

Yay, so glad you did a link up... and thanks for the mention! (:

"wanting.... a big pitcher of water". That made me laugh, but only because I know the feeling haha. After our wedding, I definitely wish I had stressed less about it. It's always easier said than done though.

Hope you have a good week!
I want netflix! It sounds like heaven... especially since there are ZERO good shows on our cable networks! x
I love this! I'm going to make a little note to do this + link up next Sunday :) xoxo!

Oh I love this idea and the link up! I need to remember this for next Sunday. I was on the fence about the new Emily Giffin but maybe I'll give it a try. Hope this week is a little less stressful!
Ashley said…
I love this idea! I need to remember to link up next week. So cute. Love all of your currentlys :)
I totally need to learn how to chill out too! I have been so stressed that it makes no sense! Good things are coming your way though, just remember that :)
Elle Sees said…
I'm so sorry you are stressed out. I hope it all comes down soon as quickly
I'm doing this next week! This is a great idea!!! I found you through Ashley's site, Piloting Life. Hi there!

I happened upon your blog by accident. I was so inspired by your Currently Sunday series I have decided I will give it a try myself although I may tweak it to fit my blog. Thanks!
Anne Anglo said…
how did you combine all your post in one category??

I found this post of you by reading other blog's currently, and like them, i was inspired to do the same. Thank you for the idea.

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.
