WORKING ON: Production. Never exciting. The fun part is designing, not the making of the same thing over and over again. It's the very non-glamourous part of being a designer.
THINKING ABOUT: Fall. Missing the changing of colors and smell of the cool, crisp air with a hint of fireplaces creeping in. It's the only thing I miss about the NorthEast.
ANTICIPATING: Moving from the complex I'm in to a little house. I still have two months to go, but I can't wait!
LISTENING TO: Trying to listen to a wider range of the music I own. My iTunes has just about 10,000 songs. I usually listen to about 200.
EATING: I've been on an oatmeal with my dads homemade maple syrup kick. So yummy.
THANKFUL FOR: The chance to collaborate with so many talented people recently, it's been amazing!
PLANNING FOR: A new direction for the online class I teach with Renee, I'm really excited!
READING: Just finished Girls in Trucks by Katie Crouch last night and started Tender at the Bone: Growing Up at the Table by Ruth Reichl. Reading for work: What Woman Want by Paco Underhill.
WATCHING: Parks and Recreation Season 4...I laugh through the entire episode.
I love having fun things to look forward to...I mean really though, who doesn't? I have TWO awesome things to go to this weekend and I am ultra excited because I am going to check them out with a girl friend of mine and that will make it even more fun! The
I am completely obsessed with

The last two days have been finally feeling like fall here in Austin...I am wearing a SWEATER!! I was a bit sad when we came back from the cool temps of Colorado last week and it was down right hot here. I also got sick...which is now not so bad as the weather plummeted to 50 and I'm sure I would have ended up sick anyway. At least this way I'm already halfway over it. and rambling. So anyway...I'm all excited about fall and sweaters, slippers...blankets on the couch and Thea texts me a photo of her front yard covered in snow. Which was when I realized that I never get to see the first snow of the year fall on the leaves and all of that magical and beautiful stuff anymore. I was sad. However, this morning I woke up to a text from my mom. It snowed in Millbrook last night. A month earlier then normal. They are expecting an ice storm this weekend...
Wow, its amazing how quickly you can get over missing something! AND I can run around outside nice in toasty in a sweater.
I figure if I can't experience fall, I will at least live it though the blog...because I can.
I have a crazy busy next few days ahead of me, but filled with so many fun things that I'm all antsy with anticipation. Tomorrow I am participating in Austins First Thursday, which I think is basically a bug party on South Congress where all the restaurants, shops, and locals pour out into the streets the first Thursday of each month and hang out. If you're in the area, I have been approved to be in the Gibson Street Artists Market (by the dogs) so come by and visit!!
Friday I have a lunch meeting for a new project I am working on and then coffee with a new friend, squee!!
Saturday, Adam and I are off to South Padre to visit his parents and on Sunday, my sister Gillian arrives in South Padre too!!! I'm so excited to see her, it's such a change to go from seeing family all the time to only every few months, if that. I can't wait!!!
