CHECKING IN

IMG_3797

Making : puppets with the kids I work with on Mondays

Drinking : less coke. Starting today.

Reading : Everything Is Perfect When You’re a Liar by Kelly Oxford, human woman extraordinaire.

Wanting : All of the fall clothes from Anthropologie

Playing : Carly Simon’s “Nobody Does It Better” on repeat… still, after months of listening.

Wishing : It was sweater weather.

Enjoying : The moments leading up to Halloween!

Waiting : impatiently for Gone Girl this Friday! I’m so excited I can hardly stand it. David Fincher is one of my favorite directors and the book blew me away.

Liking : Riffsy, the GIF keyboard for iPhone… it’s the best way to really communicate reactions. Way better than emojis!

Loving : Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which I just started watching last week and am already on season 3 of… jeepers, I have a serious binge-watching problem.

Watching : well, Buffy, obviously, but I just saw An Officer and a Gentleman for the first time yesterday and it’s so good. Debra Winger is the best!

Needing : to re-paint my toenails.

Smelling : nothing. I’m so congested I can’t smell or even taste anything.

Wearing : this, the most comfortable v-neck of all time (in lavender)

Thinking : about Buffy, honestly. I’m going to watch it as soon as I finish this post.

Admiring : my mother, because she is cooking me food right now and I’m completely starved.

Buying : way too many movies this weekend… The Big Sleep, Hannah and Her Sisters, The Last Picture Show… I’m a sucker for a movie sale.

Getting : anxious for American Horror Story: Freakshow.

Disliking : my hair. It’s still short and I figured it would have grown out by now! It’s been three months!

Feeling : very hungry, at the moment.

Coveting : this fab coat from NastyGal

Wishing : I had my own house and an endless supply of money to decorate it with.

Hearing : nothing but my fan that’s blowing, and the sound of Netflix calling me back to watch Buffy.

COME SEE ABOUT ME

Screen Shot 2014-09-10 at 12.03.57 AM

Making : a wedding program & a huge mess of my closet.

Cooking : tomato sandwiches. Does that count? For whatever reason, family friends always send us tomatoes. We have bag fulls in the kitchen & laundry room. I’m not complaining, just spittin’ the facts.

Drinking : Piper & Leaf Pink Mar-Tea-Ni. Sweetened and iced.

Reading : The King in Yellow by Robert W. Chambers. Trying to subdue the True Detective withdrawals, of course

Wanting : Oh goodness, so many things. I’ve started my Christmas wish-list already! But let’s see… anything from Amy Sedaris’s I Like You collection, a Simplified Planner, and these collar clips.

Looking : forward to kicking my boyfriend’s toosh in Fantasy Football this coming week. We’re matched up against each other, and the claws are out. 

Playing : Donald Glover’s insane freestyle.

Wasting : as little as I can, or trying to. To quote one of the kids I keep at daycare, “We’ve gotta protect the Earth! It’s all we got!”

Wishing : my wants didn’t make me sound so materialistic.

Enjoying : blogging.

Waiting : for the weather to get cooler. I’m so tired of 80 degrees with high humidity. 

Liking : this, my most favorite, episode of This American Life

Wondering : if people are enjoying my blog, but telling myself, in the wise words of Tina Fey, “Do your thing and don’t care if they like it.”

Loving : compliments from a person you consider successful and intelligent. 

Hoping : I can move in with my college roommate in October.

Marvelling : at Kate Spade’s Spring 2015 collection.

Needing : a haircut.

Smelling : Capri Blue from Anthropologie (coming from this gorgeous opalescent constellation holder).

Wearing : this headscarf.

Following : updates on social media from my favorite shows that are returning in the fall. Parenthood, The Mindy Project, New Girl, Nashville, American Horror Story, Parks and Rec, Girls, Glee, Portlandia, SNL, Veep, and Scandal, I’m looking at you!

Noticing : that I’ve had “Appointment- 10:30!” written in dry erase marker on my mirror for entirely too long.

Knowing : that my friend Rachel will be back from Germany in less than a month, but wishing it was sooner!

Thinking : that my back hurts.

Bookmarking : this, to read later. 

Opening : in a matter of days, the signed Marc Johns print I ordered (it shipped out today!).

Giggling : when a man walked into the coffee shop today and the first thing he said to the barista was, “Did you know that at one point in history, Michael Jackson was making more money than Elvis Presley? Can you believe that? Elvis Presley! Ha! I’ll take a coffee with chocolate.” 

Feeling : wide awake.
