♥ School supplies. I've always been a sucker for fresh notebooks, newly sharpened pencils, and fancy pens, but having a reason to buy them makes it that much better. Doesn't it just make you feel more productive?
♥ Exploring StL with Boyfriend. The countdown is (unfortunately) on and Boyfriend & I have been trying to make the most of our last nine days together. We've been to two awesome restaurants within walking distance of the apartment this week and it's great for a few reasons: 1) I'm not paying :mrgreen:, 2) we've had lightning fast service since we've gone on weeknights - we're usually one of the only tables!, 3) it's nice to be able to walk to a good meal.
♥ Autumn. Okay, okay! I know summer isn't over YET but can you tell I'm in an autumn state of mind? I'm already planning outfits full of cashmere cardigans and cozy scarves, and I can't wait for delicious autumn foods.. apple and pumpkin e v e r y t h i n g! Plus - baseball gets better, all the bugs go away, and the beautiful autumn colors come out.
♥ True Blood. I know this was in my Honorable Mentions last week, but I have to give it more love. After being an entire season behind, Boyfriend & I finally caught up (the miracle of the Internet!) and now get the enjoy watching True Blood on the big screen at the Moolah. Holy guacamole, that show is addictive! We're excited to watch at the Moolah but you get kind of spoiled when you're used to being able to watch unlimited True Blood whenever you want. By the way, has anyone else noticed a dramatic increase in gore in season 3..?
♥ Honorable Mention. Staying up too late to finish a good book; Mexican food; rediscovering albums (this week - "Under the Blacklight".. I don't care what anyone says, it was awesome!); White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Luna bars; weekly cleaning; Tumblr; a good sweaty hike; finding the perfect gray suede ballet flats; my Netflix queue; obsessing over my page views - they jumped on Monday (maybe riding boots and built ins are really popular..?); Daily Mile; finally getting my loan check, a month after it was issued to me; finding new lovely blogs to read; waking up early; Taylor Swift's "Mine" stuck in my head 24/7; Friday the 13th; BBM.
