(I’ve seen this floating around the interwebz and thought “heeeeeeey, this would be a great way to start each month”. you should be in my head, I really thought that. so, here’s the first installment, let’s catch up at the beginning of each month…)
making: cards. 2 just because cards are being dropped in the postbox today.
cooking: caprese salad. that’s not really cooking, it’s slicing. cooking-adjacent? and quiche. and bacon and eggs. and taco salad. I don’t really take cooking seriously in the summer.
drinking: coffee and diet coke; my two staples in life.
wanting: a new pair of Toms; they’re on the list for this weekend.
playing: Lost Stars by Adam Levine. my itunes can tell you how many times I’ve listened to it, but I choose not to share that number.
wishing: Chicago PD episodes were still on OnDemand.
enjoying: quiet. I’m an itunes/tv must always be on in the background kind of girl; but I’ve been embracing the quiet so far this week. (probably because I’m seeing my dad on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday, and he can talk…a lot)
waiting: for October. #sistertrip2014
liking: coleslaw. I’m in a slaw phase.
wondering: how my friends’ kids’ first day of school was. I was a pretty awkward and shy kid, the first day of school was filled with anxiety and nervousness.
loving: rainy mornings.
marveling: at how little things really are the best things.
needing: a pedicure. I dropped a chair on my toe a few weeks back, so I’m waiting till it heals properly.
smelling: sea salt & sand. I scooped up the last candle on clearance at target last week.
wearing: my workday uniform: navy lounge pants and a grey t-shirt.
knowing: it’s still summer
watching: Rookie Blue reruns. Nick Collins, I can’t quit you.
thinking: I need to get out walking again. maybe once the humidity breaks…
opening: a new bag of coffee; hello smuggled (but not really) Dunkin Donuts Original.
giggling: at movie quotes (Friends with Benefits sent to kathryn and a classic The Holiday line sis sent me on Tuesday)
feeling: not sad anymore. (if you’d like to have a good cry…and by good cry I mean sob for 30 minutes watch The Book Thief. allofthefeelings)
