This Week

Yeah. I make to-do lists (which, if I were to type it as I say it would look like "tahdoo lists") for everything. Even the fun stuff. This week, my to-do's are as follows:

- Wake up early. Make time for coffee and a walk or something instead of being rushed.
- Run. All 7 days.
- Make all my own meals (no eating out).
- Read a little every day.
- Learn how to origami cranes. 
- Make a Christmas wreath (inspiration above)
- Take a couple pretty pictures
- Move somewhere with cold weather

Fine, I'm kidding about the last one. But man, it was over 80 degrees today. Vomit.

It's Fall Y'all

Happy fall, y'all! How was your Thanksgiving? I spent the yummy holiday with the fam in Houston and had such a relaxing time. Ran a bit, walked my sister's new pooch, collected pine cones and proceeded to paint them gold and copper, and ate ate ate. It's the first time Texas looked a bit like autumn.

I'm ready for some serious holidaying and half plan on wearing sparkle tights till the day after New Years. What'dya think? Would the office let it slide?

There's a Turkey Around the Corner

Can you believe the holidays are here?! I, for one, cannot. Oh, I'm glad they are- they're just super sneaky, aren't they?

I'm excited for Thanksgiving and all the family/friend fun that it's going to bring.
I CAN'T WAIT to get a little Christmas tree.
I want to cozy up in that above pictured bed.
I want to do a million crafty things and wear a million holiday dresses to make every minute of the season feel festive.
Oh, I want to see The Nutcracker too. To which I will, of course, wear one of the previously mentioned holiday dresses.

On an update note- I've been trying my damnedest to relax. To honestly take a chill pill and turn my brain off for a bit here and there. It's tough! And while I know I'm taking big steps toward a healthy level of mental check-out, I struggle with turning off my work/life to-do's and just rest in the present.

What works for you? How do you rejuvenate?
