the sunday currently, volume 2.


*starting next week, the sunday currently post will go live
at 12:00 p.m. central time, every sunday. this will give
everyone a chance to prepare their posts & link up accordingly!*

reading the happiness project, by gretchen rubin... & identifying with it immensely. when i was reading it a couple of nights ago, i highlighted a few whole pages in a row. i feel like i'm learning quite a lot from mrs. rubin - & i'm excited about it.
writing blog posts about the wedding shower that happened yesterday. i had such a great time! i can't wait to put my experience & thoughts down into words.
listening to birds chirping as i sit on the porch, pumpkin spice latte in hand. something i've been doing this year while i sip on PSLs is to picture a big, creamy slice of pumpkin pie - with crumbly crust & a big dollop of whipped cream on the top - & pretend like that's what i'm eating. it works. it's lovely.
thinking i couldn't be more ready for the wedding to get here. the more the time winds down, the more the stress winds up. i'm pretty sure being so stressed out is the reason i'm currently sick. and i don't like it.
smelling pumpkin spice latte, of course. and the smells of a warm fall day outside.
wishing for a calm week during which i can accomplish loads of important things. vague much? well, i'll elaborate: i hope to finish my wedding party gifts, to get my final guest count & paperwork over to nottoway, to do a good job working for my dad, to get my wedding dress re-fitted, to take libby lou to the vet to get her sutures out, & to apply to at least five more jobs in wilmington. whew.
hoping i can accomplish all of the above. when i write it all out, i realize how much it really is.
wearing workout clothes. because wearing workout clothes is the first - and most crucial - step to working out.
loving that my sister has been in town this weekend. i think one of my favorite parts of the weekend was falling asleep to the wonder years every night. she's sitting on the porch with me - & my parents - right now, & i already miss her.
wanting to go for a run in a little while. you'll be pleased to know that i actually got up in time to run before my wedding shower yesterday. [i know, i was impressed/surprised/in disbelief too].
needing to go to church this evening. and to write in my ink-and-paper journal, as i discussed here.
feeling sick. like a big sick sicky. i haven't felt well since wednesday of last week. i finally took some medicine this morning. i hope i feel almost completely better by at least tuesday.
clicking nothing at all. this is my first time on the internet this weekend... which i'm kind of proud of.

what are you doing currently? link up below.

Mmmm... Pumpkin spice lattes. I'm going to have to try imagining eating a giant slice of pumpkin pie next time I sip one of those. (:

It's nice taking a little time away from the internet every now and then... I think it's good for us all. Happy Sunday to you.

I just noticed the other day the The Wonder Years is on Netflix, so awesome!!

I hope that you do have a calm week and that you accomplish all your errands! I remember going through all the pre-wedding stresses with everything, Phew!

Happy Sunday!

Awww I hope you feel better! I was on antibiotics the day of our wedding thanks to a sinus infection. All of that stress takes a toll on a bride!

And the whole workout clothes thing... I can identify with that! Back when I actually worked out every morning before work, I went to sleep in my workout clothes... socks, sports bra and all. So all I had to do was throw my hair back and lace up my shoes.

I was less busty back then and I don't think I would wear a sports bra to bed ever again.... but it would sure help!

Hope you feel better girl!!! Just know that it is all worth it come the wedding day. Just take it one thing at a time.

I've currently been loving Salted Caramel Mochas from Starbucks! Sooo good.

Girl, I just want you to know that I've been praying for you. I know you've got a lot on your plate with the wedding. You'd think things would settle down the closer you get, but it seems the opposite. Hope you stay well and can relish the little moments. Sounds like you're doing well on that front, so keep it up and keep those PSLs coming! :)
