Things I love Thursday


I haven’t done a proper TILT post in 3 months, so I guess it’s time to round up a few of the things I’ve been loving lately.

I’m loving…

… that there is a 4-day weekend coming up (and it’s our anniversary weekend, too). Weeee!

… my little blooming cactus.

… 90’s music. I don’t know if it’s the nature of getting older and getting stuck in the music genre that you loved in your late teens and early 20’s, but part of me can’t get on board with the music of today. You can make me happy with anything alternative rock from back in the days. I think it’s safe to say that Pearl Jam’s “Ten” is still my favorite album, ever!

… evenings on our little balcony. It’s so nice to be able to sit outside and enjoy the cooler air after the sun goes down.

… a weekend at the beach in SoCal (obviously).

… Instagram. It’s just such a fun way to share photos.

… my Erin Condren Planner. I was reluctant to buy it because of the steep price tag, but decided to get a 9-months-reduced-price version to see how I like it. And boy, do I like it!

… all the BiSC recaps, which I vicariously live through and which at the same time also give me the sads for not having been able to be there this year. 2013 for sure.

… painted toe nails.

… stamps. That’s no news, really. I seem to have acquired a little addiction.

… turning some online acquaintances into online friends and turning some online friends into IRL friends. It’s always lovely to see how easy the transition is (in most cases).

… feeling understood.

… being able to live in my sandals for the rest of the summer.

… my nook, although I never thought I would say that, but last weekend definitely proved how convenient an e-reader is for traveling.

… the trip to the East Coast that J and I are dreaming up right now. Flights are booked, but details are still in the works. 5 weeks to go!


What are you loving right now?

  1. I am loving that it is almost the weekend and I’m headed to the lake for some much needed r&r!

    I’m with you on the 90s music! Especially the alternative, you are so right! My all time favorite station is the Lithium station on XM. I don’t have XM radio but I have created my own personal Lithium playlist on Spotify. I love it!!

  2. I’m so jealous of your 4-day weekend. I only get three days – sigh. And our evening air is going to be hot and sticky. I do like the sun, but HATE humidity. I should’ve moved to the desert. ha. Happy early anniversary – have a great weekend!

  3. Thinking of my new granddaughter and her impending birth.
    Making Schnitzel from scratch.
    Going to the German Deli and getting some of my favorite foods.
    My husband.
    My dogs.
    My friends & family!!!

  4. Great post! Erin Condren’s stuff is so cute! I’m dying to get one of her new iPad cases… but they’re out of my budget at the moment!

  5. Oh, and happy early anniversary!!!

  6. I’m loving the long weekend, the warm weather and sunshine in Massachusetts (finally!), and the summer ahead filled with lots of reading :)

  7. 2013 BiSC- yes please! :)

  8. I am so glad you are liking your nook! I was really reluctant to buy one and was so surprised to find that I loved it and almost prefer reading books on it! It is especially great when traveling! :)

    This week I am loving…
    – fresh tomatoes and berries that taste oh so good!
    – the fact that I have a nice long vacation in 6 weeks!
    – that the CFA exam is ALMOST here. I’m ready to take it and put it behind me.
    – emails from you :)

  9. I really want to make it to 2013 BiSC. Even if I’m still intimidated by some of the bloggers that attend + Vegas. But I have to go!

    This week, I’m not loving much to be honest! Being back from an awesome vacation and thrust into crazy work projects + dealing with being sick + not getting a lot of sleep = cranky Steph. But I *am* looking forward to a 3-day weekend! And starting the #twookclub book. :)

  10. Happy Anniversary! I hope you have an awesome four day weekend! I think we are supposed to have perfect weather. I am also a huge fan of the 90s music, and especially Eddie! Sigh…

    What I am loving:
    — my mini garden. The seeds are sprouting. I am so excited to see what happens next!
    — the sunshine. It has been sunny with a cool breeze all week, making the “feels like” temps about 68 or 70. PERFECT.
    — my boyfriend will be here next week (from Back East)! It’s going to be hard to learn to live with each other again, but I am looking forward to it.
    — trying new brunch places a couple times a month. Speaking of… any word on the EB weekend?

  11. I love, love, love my Erin Condren planner. It was a lot to spend on a planner, but it’s made my life approximately a million times easier.

    2013 BiSC FOR THE WIN!!
