currently: the summer fall edition

This past weekend Houston gave us a taste of fall. It was glorious. The air felt nippy, the sun was shining, and my cardigan felt so nice against my non-sweaty arms. I couldn't believe it. Cooler weather, what! As I smiled with the kind of joy that only fall can bring, I happened to look down at my car thermometer. It read 83 degrees

83 degrees. That was our fall preview. That's what felt cool

And this is the story of how Texas and it's 106+ temperatures ruined me. 

Other than thinned out Texas blood, let's talk about what else is currently going on...
cheer-sing //
This time next week we'll be in my favorite place in the world getting ready for the wedding of some of my favorite people in the world. If you guessed Charleston as the place, you win ten gold stars. If you guessed that I'll be drinking champagne cocktails from Rarebit, you win twenty gold stars. If you guessed Andy and Katie as the people getting married, you win all the gold stars.

organizing //
My life. And by that I mean the guest bedroom closet, but don't you feel like your life is being organized when you clean out a cluttered drawer or closet or space? Yes? Good.

dreaming //
...of a white Christmas. That isn't gonna happen, but since I typed that, all I can think about is Christmas. So I'm dreaming of where I can put the Christmas tree in our apartment, and when I can walk up and down the Christmas aisles at Hobs Lobs without feeling like a lunatic (full disclosure: I walked down one Christmas aisle last week at the HL).

buying //
You now all know my deep, dark secret of having a pizza face. The beauty of blogging is that you don't have to see my face in real time so you didn't know I was suffering from the acne of a pubescent, sweaty 13-year old girl. At post-puberty, slightly sweaty 27-years old. No, I am not buying a new face. Yes, I am buying new concealer. No, I have no idea which concealer to get. Yes, I need all your recommendations. Thanks, Google friends.

listening //
I've only mentioned this two times on the blog, but if you've seen me in real life recently, then I've probably mentioned it two times two hundred times. Go listen to My Favorite Murder podcast right now. There's a fair amount of cursing, but if you like true crime and humor, then stop reading my blog and start listening to their podcast. Cover your ears if the bad words offend you, but uncover your ears for some of the craziest crime stories ever.

What have you been up to currently?
Linking up with Anne and Jacqui.

Champagne cocktails? Charleston? Can these people be my friends too?! :)

And ooooh thank you for the podcast recommendation. Sounds right up my alley as I am almost finished with Accused (also true crime, very good, not humorous).

okay, i use maybelline instant age rewinder for my under eyes, but i use a nyx one for any blemishes.. can't think of the name right now. good luck!
i cleaned my under the sink cabinet the other day and i seriously feel like my entire life is organised right now. when that dies down, i'll tackle a closet haha. not my life, just the closets and cabinets.

If you can believe it, there actually was a white Christmas in Texas a few years ago (DFW though. I don't know about Houston). It's so funny how Texas changes you to what you consider "cool." It was in the 70s here the other day, and I felt like I needed a jacket! LOL

I was so sad that we missed the first "fall" weather that Houston had to offer last weekend, but I'm hoping that it'll be the same this weekend, especially since I'll be going to a football game and I don't want it to be hot as all get out outside! And hooray for going back to Charleston, and for a wedding too! Weddings are always so much fun, especially when you're celebrating great friends!

I am totally downloading that My Favorite Murder podcast right now!

I always laugh when "fall" comes, because once it's 80 degrees in September, people are wearing scarves and boots, but if it's 80 in May, people are wearing shorts and flip flops. It's all relative I guess! :)

Your comment about your whole life feeling organized when you finally tackle that ONE thing, is EVERYTHING. It's so true! When I am checking even just like 2 of the 10 things off my to-do list, I feel like I run the world! Come to OH for your white Christmas!!!!! ;)

I do NOT sell Rodan & Fields, but I used to used to use their "Unblemish" and girl, it worked WONDERS. I actually just purchased it again because my face is breaking out like it did as a teen and I'm you know, 25, and need to get my life/face together. Bah!
