beach reading.

It's been too long since we've been to the beach around here. If I recall, we were supposed to be redoubling our efforts to get down there [or over there?] a lot this season... well, let's just say that Mother Nature had a different plan. It has been SO rainy here these last few weeks. And let's be honest - the beach & the rain don't really mix [Editor's Note: Unless, that is, you're in a beach-front condo with a balcony... in which case, I welcome a little beach rain with open arms. There's nothing quite like watching a storm come in over the water, with a cup of coffee or tea & a good book in hand... But I suppose that's another story for another day]. Perhaps we'll pop over to the beach this weekend? I'm sure that amidst cleaning the house [We have a visitor coming on Monday!], we will need a bit of a break. It sure would be nice to lie on the beach & read for a while. We'll see.

In the mean time, here is some beach reading I think you should peruse this weekend...

- Allyssa shared some tips for saving money at Target - because we all know that place is a trap. You walk in for one thing, you walk out with fifty things. May as well save a buck or two, right?

- Know what makes me happy? Chocolate chip cookies. That's why I was pretty thrilled to stumble across Aunt Peaches' post in which she shares Tessa's post on how to achieve your favorite type of chocolate chip cookies. Personally, my favorites are the more flour, baking powder, & dough chilled 24 hours varieties. What are yours?

- I love routine. I love daily rituals. I love reading about it & watching vlogs featuring it. And hopefully soon I'll start writing about it. Kind of like in this post that Victoria shared on Nicole's blog

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.

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.
