taking stock.

thank you, the daybook for this idea. 

it's officially fall and i'm not mad about it.


making: time for myself. these last few weeks have been crazy and the next month is going to be really insane. i'm making sure i set aside "erica" time and enjoy the little things.
cooking: my go-to grass-fed beef burger bowl. the boy is out of town on business and this is about the only thing i'm comfortable making without burning the apartment down.
drinking: so much tea. fall weather is here!
reading: the guernsey literary and potato peel pie society. i've been randomly picking it up since july. it's soooo good but i keep getting distracted. i guess that's what a busy summer and approaching wedding will do to ya. 
wanting: a wedding day without rain. DO YA HEAR ME, RAIN GODS?!
looking: at the leaves changing outside my window. fall foliage is happening here in northern virginia and i loves it.
playing: drake "hold on we're going home" on repeat. seriously, i don't even know why but this is my jam right now. 
wasting: time in the morning. i've been so sluggish lately. 
sewing: this is a joke, right?
wishing: the dog next to us would just stop barking at all hours of the day. the joys of working from home, i guess.
enjoying: my weeknights. i'm making more of an effort to unplug after work and i'm sort of liking it. 
waiting: for the rest of our rsvp's to come. people realllllly want to make my life harder and wait until the last minute, don't they? 
liking: my hair. i've started a coconut oil hair mask routine about 2 times a week and it's been so soft and shiny and fluffy and smells delish.
wondering: when all my damn shows are going to start back up again. i'm happy the voice is back, but where's everything else?!
loving: the flowers the boy got me. just because.  
hoping: for a beautiful & sunny weekend. it's jam-packed with errands, brunch, an engagement party, and a house warming party but on sunday we're going for a hike and wine tasting. ya know, for my birthday.
marveling: at jersey drivers. i think i've lived in virginia for too long because holy moly. i got the evil eye from an 80 year old woman for not turning right on red when there was a sign clearly telling me not to. i love my home state but RELAX PEOPLE!
needing: a mani/pedi. i'm waiting until the wedding to get a pedicure but treating myself for a mani on my birthday so my nails stop breaking and grow!
smelling: our new "autumn leaves" candle from bath and body works. it smells like fall and makes me crave pumpkin pie and caramel apples and hot chocolate all day, everyday. 
wearing: chino shorts and a striped sweater. my FAVORITE combo for early fall!
following: the new bethenny frankel talk show. i sort of love it. 
noticing: my first gray hair! i'm really depressed about this. really. i cried.c
knowing: that i turn 28 on monday is sort of depressing and sort of awesome. i feel like it's going to be the best year yet! 
thinking: no more glasses! i got contacts this week and even though my eyes are still adjusting to them, i don't need my glasses anymore!
feeling: lonely. i hate when the boy is away.
bookmarking: winter jackets. i love this one, this one and this one.
opening: boxes from crate & barrel and bed, bath & beyond. i love opening wedding gifts!
giggling: at this video.
feeling: grateful and blessed for all the love and support at my new jersey bridal shower this past weekend. pics to come!



don't be shy

First off, loved this idea and did it too! As soon as I saw it I realized how necessary it was for me to do. :)

Second, opening weddings gifts IS amazing, fall is where it's at, your weekend sounds about 1000X better than mine, and I hear ya on the mani pedi. I get one maybe once every few years? eek.
