so far...



these cupcakes have nothing to do with this post. but, i mean, YUM.

Blaugust. 

That thing where I committed to writing a blog post every day of August, to celebrate my birthday month. Because, honestly, YES, it is stressful to put content up on my blog every single day. I don't always schedule the posts ahead of time, I don't always feel inspired to write. But it still makes me feel so productive, so accomplished to get something done each day. And so, here we are. 

I thought today - since it is kind of one of those un-inspired days - I'd do a little round-up of the posts I've written so far for Blaugust. I love a lot of the posts I've put up so far, so I thought, why not? Here they are...

[August 1 a birthday month overhaul.This is where I talk about my August goals, which I'm actually doing pretty well with, if I do say so myself.
[August 2 weekender.I love the shorts in this outfit set, & if they'd like to magically appear in my closet, I'd be fine with that. I also shared my new favorite YouTube channels, which I'm pretty much obsessed with right now.
[August 3 thoughts at the park.A little stream-of-consciousness reflective writing.
[August 5: savannah snapshot: gryphon tea room.A photo round-up of mine & Justin's favorite part of our trip to Savannah.
[August 6: how i organize the blogs i like to read.By far one of my most favorite posts of all the ones I've written. I've been really getting into organization lately, so I really enjoyed writing about how I categorize my blog reads.
[August 7: little joys.A tiny little corner of our apartment that brings me great joy.
[August 8: wardrobe reconstruction: defining my personal style.Another of my all-time favorite posts here on my blog. This is the first post in a series I'll be sharing as I revamp my wardrobe.
[August 9: a song, a book, a quote, a look.Sharing some of my favorites in this post to participate in one of my new favorite link-ups.
[August 10: beach reading.Just a round-up of reads from around the Internet.
[August 12: little joys: a fulfilling monday schedule.Y'all. I seriously had one of the best Mondays ever yesterday. Wanna go read about it? You should. It's simple, but lovely.

What are some of your favorite posts that you've put up lately? I'd love to get caught up - leave a link in the comments, & I'll head over & check it out.

You are SO good! Those cupcakes look yummy! I am loving my small towns have all the fun post http://yettobedetermined86.blogspot.com/2013/07/small-towns-have-all-fun-my-weekend.html Mostly because it was one of those unexpected really fun days. And it shows the outgoing crazy side of me:)

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.

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.
