5 Things Thursday

Hello friends. How’s your week going? 

Mine has been full but good. Sorry I didn’t write anything earlier in the week. It’s OK though. Whatev. This is what’s going on with me right now:

1  CUTTING DOWN ON THE COFFEE (JUST A BIT) - This past weekend I unintentionally missed my afternoon coffees on both Saturday and Sunday, which consequentially led to the most horrifyingly painful headaches I’ve had in a while.

I’m being overdramatic. But still. I love coffee and sometimes it’s a little crazy how addicted I can be. But I’m going to try to stick this out and see what cutting back on my caffeine can do.

Granted, there’s been more naps. But that’s a give and take, right? 

I should probably drink more water and start running again.

2  THE RETURN OF TV - The best part of fall television so far has been the season premiere of How I Met Your Mother. Because after 8 long seasons of not ever meeting the mother, we finally do! 

And I’m glad they’re weaving her in and throughout the season (because all of Season 9 will be the weekend that he meets her) with some flash forwards and flash backs. It just makes my heart happy to know that Ted Mosby can finally be happy.

Is that strange? To be so wrapped up in a television show like that? Maybe so. I don’t care though.

Other notable mentions: Nashville, Parenthood, Glee (specifically episode 3 that is dedicated to Cory Monteith), New Girl + Mindy Project (I feel like those two go together) … but mostly Parenthood because that show is bomb.

3  OCTOBER EQUALS PUMPKIN EVERYTHING - I don’t know about you but I’m a stickler to the rules of autumn and how it’s allocated for the months of October and November. Which means that I only make my famous (actually it’s Robin’s Famous) Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies two months out of the year.

I still need to go buy the ingredients. But it sounds so yummy!

Not to mention the Pumpkin Pie Tartlettes for Thanksgiving.  Those are the best.  Ooooohh, I also want pumpkin pancakes with apple cinnamon toppings but only like one because those are very rich. 

Oh autumn, I love you and your foods and sweater weather. Please tell SoCal to get the memo about the weather though. I’m still wearing shorts here. 

4  BARNA FRAMES - Look what my friend Roxy has been up to! Check, check it : Barna Frames.

Who wants to the go to the event in January? It’s in LA and it’s FREE. 

(PS - how hot is the design on this? My friend Amy Duty did it … she’s pretty much the best. I may be a little bias, but my coworkers from RELEVANT are pretty rad).

5  THINGS ARE WINDING DOWN AGAINWHICH MEANS I’M NOT QUITE SURE WHAT IS NEXT - My time as a nanny is coming to a close. And my stint as a web/SEO guru has also run it’s course.

Other part-time projects that have proven to not be my absolute priority has been put on the back burner (I’m talking about the paper biz and the trip to Uganda). I’m not completely saying no to these things, but it’s on the back burner for sure.

So what’s next? I’m not too entirely sure. But I’m hoping it’s something photography related. Because, you know, that’s what I do. I’m praying for some direction. 

I’ll keep you posted!
