Craving: Today, chocolate. It tastes amazing for the first three bites, and then I have to run to the sink/toilet/trash can in case I throw it up.
Watching: Anne of Green Gables all weekend. She is my kindred spirit.
Listening: To the rain.
Drinking: English Breakfast tea
Reading: Empty Mansions. I'm not that far along, but it's fascinating so far.
Planning: Projects! So many projects! I'm working to make this place as cozy as possible before I have to be hunkered down here with a newborn for the foreseeable future.
Making: a baby blanket that is getting so close to being finished (!!!!), curtains, and I thought about trying to sew an ottoman pouf. I can't find a pattern I like yet, but I read one tutorial that started with "you'll need to pull out your high school geometry to make this." I have never exited a website faster in my life. I'm almost finished making a killer coffee station in my dining room, all in hopes that one day I'll like coffee again once these hormones are gone. I figured I'll need a special refueling spot after feeding a baby all night.
Cooking: Lots of homemade waffles lately. Leslie Knope would be so proud. I ran out of chocolate chips and butter yesterday, and it just wasn't the same. Also, homemade pizza, because sometimes lasagna is just too much work for a Sunday evening.
Thinking: that sometimes it's so much more fun and satisfying to make things than to buy them. I can only handle so much Target, and I think anyone who pays Anthropologie prices is a bit of a chump.
Loving: I hopped on Facebook (yiiiiikes) for a couple seconds to look something up, and I saw a post from a relative that essentially said she has never regretted getting married young when they could barely pass for adults, but mostly she's glad she got married before wedding hashtags and photo booths with fake mustaches. I could NOT agree more. I gave that status a standing ovation in my living room. I've always been glad I got married right before weddings became a competitive sport.
Disliking: Essential Oils posts, Whole 30 posts, the all-white/neutral home decor trend---it would make me feel like I live in a hospital. I need color! The phrase "I woke up like this"...no, you didn't. Award shows...ick.
Smelling: My vanilla + brown sugar lotion
