Happy Friday! These last few weeks have been awesome, but incredibly exhausting. Which for me, means going to bed at 9:30 instead of 8:30 (I do feel the need to justify my bedtime by mentioning that I get up at 5 to exercise before I go to work… But I am fully aware that I have a bedtime– and sleepy temperament– of a toddler). And I’m a serious bear without a full 8 hours of sleep under my belt. So, I have decided to slow down a bit and simply share some of my most recent faves.
Wanting: this perfect fall to last forever.
Reading: The Girls. This actually wasn’t one that I picked out, but one that was chosen for me. I thought I would h a t e it, but I’m actually loving it.
Watching: ALL the fall shows that are back! The Mindy Project, How to Get Away with Murder, New Girl, Grey’s Anatomy… I’m a background-TV junkie.
Listening: to Teton whine incessantly until I let him snuggle on the couch (completely under my blanket and in my lap because he is a whole new level of needy)
Hoping: all of the baking I have been doing will magically stop affecting my wallet and waistline.
Waiting: for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, like the true Hufflepuff that I am.
Getting: better at not sweating the small stuff. This, of course, still puts me miles behind a normal person, but I am improving!
Wishing: there were more hours in the day (like everyone else EVER, but I can’t always be insanely witty and original).
Working: on buying Christmas gifts early this year to avoid extra holiday stress.
Dreaming: of more sleep.
Munching: on the last of our Farmer’s Market salsa. I should be savoring it… Instead, I am piling it on everything.
Sipping: coffee with cinnamon, sugar, and a bit of milk. A LOT.
Finishing: another pint of Ben & Jerry’s Phish Food.
Planning: constantly. My “planning brain” literally never shuts off. It’s ridiculous and completely unnecessary.
Saving: all of the neighborhood cats and squirrels lives by keeping Teton inside the house. Yet, they still enjoy taunting him by strutting across our fence line.
Looking: like Daisy Duck— according to Brady.
Wearing: a t-shirt and jeans whenever possible. Just like I have since I was in junior high. #ifitaintbrokedontfixit
Buying: every skincare value set (they make it seem like I’m saving so much money!) Sephora has to offer. It’s an actual addiction.
Refusing: to rush through fall, and head right into Christmas.
Organizing: my newly minimalized make-up collection.
Loving: my EYELASH EXTENSIONS!
Bookmarking: way too many fall recipes.
