♥ 70º F. I've decided that this is my optimal temperature. I could go a few degrees cooler, but right around 70º is ideal. If I could find a place that was 70º year round, I would be the most pleasant person on Earth. (Boyfriend knows how cranky I get if I sweat when I'm not exercising. It's not pretty.)
♥ Running buddies. Lots of Thursday love for Kristen at the Seredipity Diary for being a kick in my butt and my West Coast running buddy! Sometimes you just NEED that spark to get you started again. I love it!
♥ Finding out that your favorite band is playing your city. In terms of Best Feelings and Most Excitement, I think this is probably topped by "I'm Pregnant" and "We're Getting Married." I might also be biased, but that's another story ;) I'm so excited to see one of my favorite bands, matt pond PA, later this autumn that I'm even willing to go to the show alone if I can't find anyone willing to pay the $13! Now if only Wilco and James Taylor would make stops soon...
♥ Reading. For some reason, I've been spending way more time reading now that I'm back in New York. I flew through an assigned book in 24 hours and am now s l o w l y making my way through Mockingjay. I'm kind of worried I won't finish the book because I don't want the series to be over!
♥ Honorable Mention. Two hour lunches; lazy late summer days; finding sweet deals at Marshall's; Skype dates; PaperBackSwap.com; to-do lists and crossing everything off (2nd honorable mention appearance); Katy Perry's new album "Teenage Dream" (can you believe she used to be a Christian artist?!); autumn to-dos: apple picking! pumpkin patches! haunted houses!; the Great New York State Fair; obsessively cleaning and organizing; my glorious new French Press coffee maker; the organic fair trade shade grown coffee I bought for my first cup of French Press!; York peppermint patties (do they put drugs in those? I could eat them all day).
