Making: a giant pile of clothes on the floor next to the bed. Is the 30x30 over yet?
Cooking: lots of peanut butter and nutella sandwiches. Does that count?
Drinking : as much water as I can stand!
Reading: this amazing post by Mary Lambert, over and over again.
Wanting: snow cones every day.
Looking: forward to having Friday off from work.
Playing: the new-ish alternative radio station in my car and loving it. My jams: one two three
Wasting: precious sleeping time because I procrastinated writing this post until after midnight.
Wishing: Orphan Black would just put out all of the episodes of season 2 at once so I could binge-watch them.
Enjoying: the sun still being out when I get off work after 7pm.
Waiting: for payday!
Liking: accrued vacation time as a benefit of full-time employment.
Wondering: what this summer has in store.
Loving: the warm weather in Austin.
Hoping: for a good jog after work today.
Needing: my bangs to grow so I can get them trimmed better next time.
Smelling: the new orange ginger sorbet Method hand soap I bought for the kitchen. Thanks Target!
Wearing: overalls as many days of the week as I can get away with.
Noticing: that this year is going by so very quickly!
Knowing: that Dago is the most supportive partner I could ever imagine. #cheesy
Thinking: about how salad can be pizza instead. Even a great salad still isn't pizza, amirite?
Bookmarking: SEO tips for blog photos.
Opening: way too many shopping tabs when I'm super broke.
Feeling: more insecure than usual.
Giggling: at this photo, which is now my lock screen background.

When's the last time you took stock? What are you feeling/wishing/playing/noticing?


  1. THIS ISN'T EVEN FAIR!!!! You are rocking this so hard girl. Like, better than anyone ever has and I really mean that.


  2. Hooray! Mixed prints!

  3. I adore this outfit! There is no reason not to mix gingham and polka dots...I've got to get me some gingham.

    Also really enjoyed reading your list! I'd love to borrow that idea for a post (and credit you, of course.) Peanut butter and nutella sandwiches count, and I appreciate Mary Lambert so much.


  4. this is such a great list. ginger is one of my favorite flavors-i think i'll look into this scented soap! and i keep hearing about orphan black. it's good, yeah? (cute pattern mixing, too!)

  5. ack, i forgot to add the credit myself! i got the list from Sydney over at The Daybook (she actually posted one today too! http://www.thedaybookblog.com/2014/04/taking-stock-03.html)

  6. hey girl! such a cute combo of gingham + polka.

    I love peanut butter and nutella! try nutella and jelly too, even better than PBJ. all your song choices are greatttt. I am listening to a BEY + JAY playlist I made this morning since I just got tickets to see them in ATL this summer!!! I need to follow you on Spotify (if you are on it/you will be my FB friend?)

    ♥ perfectly Priya

  7. holy crap, i've been eating peanut butter and nutella my entire life and i have NEVER though to try nutella and jelly! that just sounds amazing. i am incredibly jealous that you got bey & jay tickets. i can't even imagine what that's going to be like.

    i almost never use my Spotify account because i'm the worst, but our podcast has a playlist that Dago updates for me! i'm not sure if this link will work because Spotify is blocked at my work, but here goes nothing: https://play.spotify.com/user/tehdago/playlist/1LT9ezXTvpPJwsJaiNTTK3?play=true&utm_source=open.spotify.com&utm_medium=open

    aaaaand i just added you on fb. #notacreep

  8. I know I said yesterday's outfit was my favorite, but this one is SO perfect! You make clashing prints look effortless. So jealous! I'm also wanting snocones everyday, it's tough, but I'm trying to keep it to one per week. Might change when the temps hit 100.

  9. such a good rule for spring. the number is definitely going to go up when summer officially hits, but we can survive on one a week for now! i hope, anyway!

  10. Love this post and this outfit, but that pic has got to take the cake. So good!


  11. THis was a really fun post to read (Nutella and toast and me- we are best buds, so I hear you there).

    I really like the gingham and dots together. Also, you've reminded me I need to wear my gingham top more often!

  12. Adorable combination!! Now I totally want a gingham shirt! The last picture cracked me up! I love that it's your lock screen background!

  13. Um, I am seriously in love with this outfit. Gingham and polka dots are two of my favorite prints in the world, and they were made for each other.

    Also, YES. Can we please talk about Orphan Black? I'm obsessed.


  14. BAHAHA that last picture is priceless! And keep truckin! I've loved your 30x30 so far and this outfit is no exception! Great pattern mixing!


  15. love the combination of prints! i really like the boots too.

    jenn @ hello, rigby!

  16. We call snow cones "shave ice" here, but by any name, they are crave-worthy!
    LOVE this outfit - what a fun print mix! Pinning for inspiration. :)

  17. freaking love this outfit lady. this year is going super quick. cant wait for summer though! and boo to insecurity. i say no.

  18. Best. Photo. Ever. I love you - you crack me up!! :) I love this list, and would love to borrow it some time when I'm feeling uninspired with other words!!
