Currently Loving

T-minus 29 hours until we leave for our Washington/Idaho trip!
Holy cow... how on earth am I going to get through the work day? I'm already giddy about getting the heck out of here for a bit.

I. Cannot. Focus.

I am so ready to be spending time with my other half, enjoying the crisp 50 degree fall weather, going on morning hikes, sipping hot cocoa, relaxing at the Coeur d'Alene spa. This vacation will be welcomed with open arms!

Despite my craziness, I thought if I focused on a few things I am currently loving it may get me through in the meantime...

Coeur d'Alene Resort, Coeur d'Alene, ID  So beautiful

To Taylor Swift's 1989 album on repeat. It's incredible and I cannot get enough! I actually met her back in 2007 and she is the nicest person on the face of the planet. Are you geeking out too?

An express mani/pedi lunch appointment is a pre-trip necessity. In the fall I can't get enough of those extra dark nail hues. Hello plum and navy!

For our boys in blue! That's right, the Royals have made it to the final World Series game and it's our time! Who are you cheering for?

Out the window daydreaming. In 2 days I will be glancing out our hotel window at the gorgeous lake dotted with crimson and gold trees as I'm nestled by the fireplace.

Anything plaid. Vests. Outdoors inspired cozy fall outfits. And I am dying for a pair of chunky ankle booties, but have yet to find some - any recommendations?

A delicious homemade pumpkin chocolate chip muffin. If you are looking for a crowd pleasing recipe, look no further my friends, this is it.

It's hard to find time to watch my favorite shows since we've been watching baseball in our jammers every night! But, have you all seen How To Get Away With Murder. That show is insane and it's placement right after Scandal makes Thursday night my favorite night.

I had a blast making our home cozy for my favorite fall season, but I have been starting to get a little googly eyed thinking about a rustic inspired Christmas tree.

Good thing we are going to my favorite Christmas store in Idaho. Last year I brought home a suitcase full of fluffy white barn owls to decorate with. This year, I am thinking pine cones, owls, feathers, gold, burlap. I am clearly out of control...

I could find a good new book to start over vacation. The last few I read were Gone Girl, Beautiful Ruins, and A Fault in Our Stars. Help!

WAY too many things to do on our trip. I finally had to calm down and realize that I can have some options and I really just want us to do whatever we actually feel like doing every day. Those are the best vacations.

Different tattoo ideas. I want something delicate, beautiful, heartfelt, [small], and meaningful.

Blue everything. Blue Royals tee, blue underoos (TMI?), blue jeans, blue hair tie. This whole city is glowing blue and I love it.

Some awesome prints for our house, or really anything my hipster loving heart comes across... goodness. Good thing my birthday is in 21 days! Cue birthday wishlist post...

The new Disqus commenting system I installed on the blog last week. It's so much easier to stay connected and chat with all of you! :)

Still counting down the days until Christmas... 56!


What are you currently loving this week?

  3. I can't wait until Christmas! Especially the decorating part! Have fun on your trip!

  4. You met T Swift?!!! That is awesome! Also, I'm loving How to get away with murder, too. I'm glad to have a really good Thursday night show to watch. By the way, what happened to Thursday night TV? It used to be my favorite, but now it's kind of lacking except for HTGAWM (did I get that acronym right?) Anyhoo, have a GREAT time on your trip!! Can't wait to hear all about it!

    I hope you have a fabulous trip! I am so so so excited for Christmas! I love decorating and all of our family joins us!

    Have a safe trip


  6. That album is SO good! Obsessed!

  7. Thanks so much Jillian! I didn't sleep much in anticipation! :) Can't wait to leave!

  8. Hahaha! Great minds think alike, my friend! :)

  9. YES!!! I am so obsessed with Christmas! As soon as we get back from vacay, I am breaking out the tree! :)

  10. I sure did! Before she was really big she did little concerts, and we got into one of them - only 75 - 100 people. Awesomeness. Umm yes, I am obsessed with that show and I can't believe I have to miss it tonight! How will I ever wait to play it on my DVR a week later?! ;) I can't wait for brunch when I get back!

  11. Thank you for the safe travel wishes, Sarah - you are so sweet! Yes, the second we get back, I will be turning our house into a winter wonderland! :) I love that your whole family pitches in - what a fun tradition!

  12. I cannot get enough! Ahh! What's your favorite song so far? I am playing "Out of the Woods" on repeat. For hours. My husband just loves me right now... ha!

  13. Oh my goodness my daughter who is 11 and I LOVE the new Taylor Swift album. Style (oooohhh, just LOVE that song and Blank Space, Welcome to New York and Out of the Woods are some favorites of ours). Have a wonderful trip, it looks beautiful there!

  14. Sarah EmilyOctober 31, 2014

    I can't wait to see pictures of the trip and your holiday decor!

  15. Ahhhh!!! How 'bout you and your 11-year-old fly to KC so we can jam out to Taylor Swift?! ;) I am also loving so many songs! I am with you and love all 4 of those songs, and then lately I'm loving Wonderland. My faves switch every single day! :)

  16. Haha sounds like a blast! I'm trying to get concert tix for May 30th at Ford Field (downtown Detroit) to surprise her for Christmas and they cost a small fortune! We took her to RED concert last year but this year I can't get over the price increase. Makes me sad when many of her fans are young little gals, sigh......but it's definitely a great album. So many terrific songs.
