obsessing: over all the posts around the country about autumn. It's truly my favorite time of the year and here in LA it's still way too HOT (over 100* last week) and I'm obsessing in a very unflattering way over posts with crisp colorful leaves and warm cozy scarfs. Oh, and boots! 
reading: Gunn's Golden Rules by Tim Gunn. This is most definitely a read for anyone who loves Project Runway but also just anyone who loves all things fashion-related. It's such a raw and real talk about life with a mix of great and truthful stories from "the industry". I'm LOVING this read and it's the perfect thing to snuggle up to at night. Well, and my snoring guy.
watching: all that I can until fall shows return. I cannot wait for Grey's Anatomy to come back so until then I've filled my days re-watching The Office for the 10th time, finishing the final season of Dexter, yelling at the results of SYTYCD and sneaking the occasional Real Housewife or Teen Mom. don't judge. What shows do you love? I'm ALWAYS in need of something to turn on while cooking or crafting.
planning: our FIFTH anniversary next month! Holy Moly. Can't believe how much I love that guy of mine and how far we've come together in these five years. Now if he'll just put a ring on it..... sheesh! 
sick of: this heat! oh wait, I already told you that. I'm also really tired of hearing about Miley Cyrus and the twerking. am I the only one who feels old now and thinks all this ridiculousness should just be put to a stop? I guess that's what 27 years old will do to you. 
thinking about: BIG changes happening in the next six months. So much that I wish I could share and so much that I'm totally unsure about. But taking leaps all over the place in life and just hoping there's a parachute attached so I don't end up on my butt. How's that for a closing thought?
