the sunday currently, volume 11.

reading les liasons dangereuses, by choderlos de laclos.
writing business plan branstormings & rough drafts. it has begun.
listening to sirius xm radio in my new car lately! as a music enthusiast, this is a big deal. i've wanted xm for a few years now. alt nation is my favorite station, by far!
thinking about posting part one of our honeymoon on here this week - i've got to get some pictures off of justin's phone & edit them, though. i'm excited to share some photo-heavy posts of our time up north.
smelling the smell of a relatively clean apartment. kind of excited to smell freshly cleaned laundry later - since i've been keeping tabs on the laundry, it hasn't gotten out of hand. this is practically a miracle for me. and i'm really excited for next weekend, because then, i'll be smelling christmas tree smell in our apartment.
wishing i didn't feel so exhausted. i stayed up way too late last night. first, we saw the breaking dawn movie & got home around midnight, then we finished up school ties. then, we started yet another movie, but i fell asleep during it. my body is aching from not getting enough sleep. it's early to bed tonight.
hoping other people were disappointed in the breaking dawn, part two movie as well. justin & i saw it last night, & i just... i don't know. i am a big-time crier, & i didn't cry once in the movie. i just didn't feel connected to it, & i'm not sure why.
wearing pjs, obviously. today, they consist of an old, stretchy, comfortable old navy sweater & some sleep shorts that i actually won in one of eliza's giveaways [i wear them alllllll the time!]
loving our brand new ride. and feeling thankful.
wanting to have an even more productive week this go round, than last week. i did a lot better this past week, but i could still stand to improve. and i will!
needing to get out & do some christmas shopping for all of my favorite people. and also, to send out our christmas cards. we went the traditional route this year, but for the next, i'm hoping to design our cards & have them printed up on nice card stock. then, they'll be more personal!
feeling like i'm in a really rambly mood today. you can always tell when i'm having a rambly day on these currently posts... the blocks of text are always significantly bigger. also, feeling great about how much i've been running this week. excited to keep it up in the coming week.
clicking tanesha marie's christmas party outfits [especially this one + this one]. these gorgeous photos of one of my favorite writers. and more beautiful photos here.

New, clean car smell... clean laundry... and a clean apartment... those are all good things! (:

I'm going to see Breaking Dawn part2 this week... I'm a little worried I won't like it. Uh oh.

Happy Sunday! Hope you have a lovely week.

New car smell. The best.
And satellite radio is the best, too. Alex's free trial just ended so I'm getting a year for him for Christmas. I love Coffee House and Spectrum. They are my two faves.

Have a great day!

Playing along tonight. :)
I think everything sounds better in a new car! Enjoy it!!! Also, I would love to see your honeymoon photos, I bet they're beautiful. I have yet to see any of the Twilight movies... Never found an interest in them despite loving chick flicks.

Thank you for hosting such a cool link up!
Congrats on your new car! That's so exciting! Early to bed for us tonight too!! :-)

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.
