the sunday currently, volume 45.

sweaty & closed-eyed - we look pretty awesome

I was in the mood for a little bit of a change for this week's TSC post, so I decided to do an old-blog-style post, like I did back at the beginning of June. As always, feel free to link up any post in which you discuss what you've currently been up to. Want more info about The Sunday Currently? It's all here.

currently dreaming about:

the future

currently wishing for:

more ice cream, please

currently loving to wear:

my neon green + white striped gap infinity scarf
my grandfather's watch

currently listening to:

currently watching:

the office, again from the beginning
the inbetweeners
tons of netflix movies

currently reading:

rise and shine, by anna quindlen
my ever-growing get-to-know blogs list

currently spotted:

talking on the phone or reading while working out, instead of listening to music
sweating like crazy & guzzling a 32-ounce sprite on our mini golf date yesterday evening [see above]

currently concerned about:

nothing. going with the flow.

currently loving:

flickering candles in the living room 

currently planning:

to get closely acquainted with some healthy living blogs. eating ice cream for breakfast two days in a row will do that to you.

This week I'll be wrapping up the two psychology classes I've been juggling for the past five weeks. I'll have a little break before starting up with a full load in the Fall, & I'm ready to enjoy my last few weeks of sweet summertime. Hope you're all having a lovely weekend.

Your mini-golf date sounded so cute! It reminds me of childhood summers spent at the beach, and I keep telling the hubs that we need to play some mini-golf sometime soon. I think I still have a coupon for a free game that I won when I was 15... Dates are the best. :) Congratulations on making it to the end of your summer classes! Which psych classes are you taking?
siddathornton said…
ooh, let me know if you find a realistic healthy living blog. I can't find any with a tone I like!
siddathornton said…
there's nothing wrong with ice cream in the summer. end. of. story. ;)
siddathornton said…
thaaaaank you. that's the truth.
siddathornton said…
that's the same problem i've been having. i'll let you know if i stumble across any particularly good ones!
siddathornton said…
mini golf makes me think of family vacays at the beach, too! i always picked the hot pink ball ;) AND since justin got a hole in one on the first hole yesterday, he won a free game too! sometimes we like to go play glow putts in the mall - so fun!

right now i'm in developmental psych & abnormal psych. i think they're really interesting, but they're getting pretty heavy.

I'm so glad to hear you get a break from classes soon. You definitely deserve some time off to enjoy the rest of the summer.
siddathornton said…
you like The Inbetweeners? Jon LOVES that show (and the movie)! I can't handle it. too embarrassing! haha
siddathornton said…
Good luck with the your last week of Psychology classes! And enjoy the rest of your summer! I love he office! I might have to start watching that again!

I love The Sunday Currently. It's the type of post I picture myself writing in a coffee shop with a warm latte. I just wish I didn't actually work in a coffee shop every Sunday morning so that I could get back to writing them!

onnnneeee mmoooorrreee daaayyyyy. :)
siddathornton said…
it really is embarrassing, isn't it? i've only recently gotten into watching it. some of the vulgarity makes me laugh, i'll admit. and some of it makes me blush.
siddathornton said…
thank you so much for the luck! one more day :) definitely start watching the office again - it's SO good.
siddathornton said…
this comment made my day - thank you for that! :) inspired by you, i may head up to my local coffee shop to bust out my post this sunday morning. speaking of working in coffee shops, i'm about to apply for a job at one for the fall!

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.
