I thought I would try a simpler approach for my September Currently post, but as it turns out, this is a little less simple, because I can ramble. But here ya go:
W A T C H I N G
We have our shows, and I have my shows. Corey doesn't like a lot of the things that I watch, which is totally fair. We are in the 4th season of Boardwalk Empire. This season isn't as great as the first 3, but we still love the show. I'm sad that we are about to catch up to real time, and then it's over for good.
I'm watching and LOVING Outlander. Guys, it's so good. I can't believe I took that book back to the library before any of the good stuff happened. To be fair though, the beginning of the book is kind of boring... I got it again last night and am trudging through once more. I'm a little sad that there will be a mid-season break, but it will give me a chance to finish the book, and probably get started on the next one!
R E A D I N G
So, yeah I'm reading Outlander. Not to the good stuff yet, but I'll let you know how I feel about it afterwards. I heard an interview with Diana Gabaldon, a couple weeks ago. She said that she would dare anyone to read 50 pages of her book, and see if they could put it down. I loved that. So I guess I'm not in 50 pages yet.
I'm also on the last of Rainbow Rowell's books, which was her actually her first, Attachments. I just love her voice. Her characters are all quirky and cool and so real. Too bad Landline just came out, because for sure we will have to wait a while for her next one. She is working on the screenplay for Eleanor & Park, right now, which I just loved.
I'm always in the middle of lots of books, but one that I just can't put down is The $100 Startup by Chris Guillebeau. It is seriously full of such good, insightful information, and I am so inspired. I've heard Tsh say that she tries to bring only nonfiction to bed with her, because if she's reading fiction 1. she can't put it down, 2. her mind gets so caught up in the story that it's hard to shut it off and go to sleep. So, I innocently thought, yeah, I'll bring this one to bed. Well, I couldn't put it down, and I had to take so many notes, and then my mind was abuzz. So, don't bring this one to bed. Read it in the daylight hours.

Honestly, what I listen to at work is kind of boring. NOT THAT I FIND THESE BANDS BORING. It's just that I listen to this playlist over and over, and I have for weeks... I have a playlist, with Eisley, Sucre, Merriment, and The Honey Trees. I really enjoy it.
Is there anything I should be listening to? I like lots of different music. It's just easy to push play on that playlist.

I'm making progress on my weekly wishes. For real. Not the laundry part, but the bookkeeping and the secret project planning, for sure. I'm using Godaddy's bookkeeping website. I already had it hooked up to my Paypal and Etsy, so it was tracking all of those things. But I upgraded, and added in all the other receipts I had, and it was so easy. Now I can see how much I've made, spent, and how much I need to pay in taxes.

I'm feeling really excited about all the things. Two things in particular.
1. This secret project. Lately I've been pretty down and feeling negative about design and stuff, but every time I think about this, I get SO excited. I know it's a good idea and a good plan. So I'm trying to figure out the best way to go about it. I should be able to announce it early next spring, if all the things work out. Which, they should.
2. I'm also reallllllyyyyy excited that my daddy is coming to visit! Technically he is coming to Houston for work, but he gets here a day early and he's going to spend it with meee! It's been a while since I've seen him, besides the time we saw him on the side of the road and hugged and said goodbye. I'm excited to discuss my secret project plans with him. He is so business minded, and it's great to bounce ideas off of him.
P L A N N I N G
Besides the secret project planning, which I'm sure you are sick of hearing about... I am planning a capsule wardrobe. I don't know if I will ever be able to pare it down as much as Caroline, but I'm trying. I have made a list of things I want to invest in. Classic pieces to add to my closet that will hopefully last longer that the Target + Old Navy pieces I have. I don't mind those cheaper pieces of clothing, but I find that I have to replace them a lot more often.

And finally, I'm loving the weather we've been having lately. It's been cooler and really rainy. It's feeling slightly less Summer-y. I wouldn't say it feels like Fall or anything though.
And I'm loving you! Thanks for taking the time to read my silly ramblings. I really am glad you're here.
I hope your day is wonderful and that you can cross off all the things on your to do list!
