Reading: I have finally gotten around to Emily Giffin’s, Where We Belong, and I am loving it. I am a little over halfway done and I don’t want it to end because it is that good. I have actually found myself reading most nights in the past few weeks and it has been super relaxing.

Watching: I haven’t been watching near as much tv as usual. There really hasn’t been much on that has sparked an interest. However, all my favorite fall shows are about to premiere so I am very excited about that. I have been watching Parenthood the last few weeks and it never fails I am sobbing at the end. How can they manage to make each and every episode so darn emotional? I love all the story lines and I get so wrapped up with each of the characters. It looks as though this season there are going to be more tears than ever.

Excited about: All the great deals we scored at Duck Duck Goose last week. Lila’s winter wardrobe is ready and we got it all at a fraction of the price than we would have buying everything brand new. Not only did we get her lots of clothes but I picked her up several toys for Christmas. It is kinda crazy to think we have already started shopping for the holidays but there were such incredible deals I had to take advantage of them.

Loving: The cool, crisp mornings. Fall is by far my favorite time of the year and I try and savor all the little things I love about it. I get so excited when I break out my sweaters and boots for the first time, the warm drinks, and the re-energizing feeling I get. I could definitely live in a fall-like atmosphere all year-round.

Anticipating:ย Our 4 year anniversary coming up in a few days and also my 30th birthday. Some days I am completely fine with the thought of turning 3o and other days it gives me lots of anxiety. I realize there is nothing I can do about it and I would much rather have a birthday than to stop having them but it also makes me realize how quickly these past few years have gone by. I remember when 3o seemed old and it was a distant age somewhere in the future. Now it is but days away.

Keeping busy with: Mobile-making and chasing Lila bug around.

Goals: To start exercising again on good schedule. I did manage to run one night last week but haven’t been consistent. It’s so hard to carve out extra time and I find it almost impossible to sacrifice my sleep time for exercising. I’m really gonna put forth a better effort though.

Loving: My new tattoo! It is almost completely healed now and I am already itching for my next one. I am going to take a break for a while though and really give it some good thought about what I what and where…no rush! In the mean time I will be enjoying this one ๐Ÿ™‚

Feeling: Blah. I just haven’t felt that great the past couple of weeks. I had written hereย about my dizziness and having to start a new medication in an effort to treat it. Over the past 5 weeks I have gradually been increasing my dosage of the medicine (topamax) like the dr has prescribed and it has basically made me feel like crap. I’m tingling, numb, exhausted, have no appetite, kinda weak and worst of all dizzier than I was before. It’s a pretty big bummer to say the least. I have one more week of medicine to go before I am to report back to the dr. and let her know the results and see where we go from here. Honestly, I would rather take no medicine and be dizzy with no side effects than take medicine and have all these crazy things happening. But, I guess we can’t know if something is gonna work until we try. I just want to figure it out. Some days I think I will be dizzy the rest of my life ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Reading: Right now I am reading Ishmael, it is more of a spiritual book about a man in search of the truth. I don’t normally read these types of things but I am trying to step outside of my comfort zone. ย I have my fun read lined up right behind this one though. Emily Giffin’s new book Where We Belong came out on Tuesday and the hub surprised me with it !

Watching:ย Now that The Bachelorette is over, go Jef and Emily….I am so excited about Breaking Bad and Project Runway. I didn’t get into Breaking Bad until last year and I sat down and basically watched all the seasons back to back. I know a show about meth-making may not sound like your thing….it wasn’t mine either, but it is so good. I have been into Project Runway from the very first season so I am thrilled they are back for their 10th season. I already have a few favorites. I actually forgot about the premiere last week and went to bed and I was so upset with myself. No worries though, I caught up. “It’s make it work time!”

Laughing At: How Lila will put on any pair of shoes that aren’t already occupied by feet. I think she may have a closet full of shoes one day. Who can blame the girl?

Wishing: I could own this chair. It was on the season finale of Design Star the other night and I have become completely obsessed over it. I know my cats would probably rip it to shreds but I still love it and want it…..

Planning: On cleaning out and organizing my closet in the near future. I have seen so many posts and pictures of cute closets lately and it has inspired me to do something with mine. I feel like that is one reason I have trouble getting dressed in the morning….things are too cluttered, I can’t see what I own, and I need to clean it out!

Listening: This song puts some pep in my step, even when I don’t feel like I have any pep ๐Ÿ˜‰
