Reading: I have been watching Game of Thrones for the past two seasons (and am totally obsessed,) and have heard amazing things about the books from coworkers and friends, so I decided to check them out myself. They're SO good y'all! I'm just starting the second book, A Clash of Kings and it's proving just as wonderful. (Thanks to Danielle for hooking me up with the books!) I also just finished The Anti 9 to 5 Guide which has been really great during my job hunt. It's not only opened my eyes to the possibilities out there but it has made me realized that it's okay not to find the "dream job" right off the bat, (I'm having to work on this whole patience thing.)
Watching: Fall is HERE which means the return of SO MANY of my favorite shows! Obviously I'm loving the return of Parks and Rec and my boyfriend Ron Swanson, but I'm also ecstatic about the return of Treme and Homeland (which is basically the greatest spy show EVER. I'm on the edge of my seat every single week! I'm also gorging on a couple of guilty pleasures, especially The Voice and Real Housewives of New York. (Oh my god guys I could gossip about RHNY allllll day long, isn't Ramonya INSANE?!? I'm salivating for the reunion show. And I'm aware that I should be ashamed for saying that...) In my spare time I'm still catching up on Lost and Downton Abbey (which I think is the best thing that ever happened to me. I LOVE it.) Can you tell that I'm still unemployed?! 

Listening to: Lately I've become re-obsessed with The Head and the Heart (especially the song Down in the Valley,) and the newest Tallest Man on Earth album. (There's No Leaving Now is possibly the most beautiful thing ever.) 

 Working on: SO much stuff! I'm working on a new blog design for my good friend Emilie, some different types of embroidery, and I've started knitting some goodies for the colder weather. Loving it! (Oh and lots of cover letters and resumes of course.) 

 Thinking about: I'm going on a second interview on Monday and I've had my mind just revolving around it all day every day it seems. I'm really keeping my fingers crossed for it to work out. I'm also trying to work out a time to get to see my man friend, this whole long distance thing is hard! I'm hoping we get to spend some time together real soon! (And he doesn't run screaming from Missouri... that Yankee doesn't know what he's in for.)  

Loving: The weather, cozy clothing for said weather, the abundance of craft festivals that are all over the state, and spending so much time with my family and friends, it's been amazing. I've also gotta send a big shout out to my padre, Big Al, who just finished his first Iron Man yesterday. Not bad for a 50 year old!) 

Looking forward to: Did I ever tell y'all about my absolute loooove for roller derby? I'm obsessed. Tomorrow I'll be taking my mom and brother to their first roller derby match. I'm so excited to cheer on my girl Amber Lager and the rest of the Springfield Roller Girls in their match against San Antonio. How about y'all, what are you up to today?


  1. You'll do great on your second interview lady!!! And all this job stuff will work out soon! Now the real issue is, when am I going to see you next?!

  2. Ah Clash of Kings might be my favorite of the series. They are all so addictive!
