current obsession wednesday!! [as in really current.]

wow, it's the middle of the week...already,
can you believe it?!

then there are some of you out there thinking, "it's only the middle of the week!"
totally depends on what your week is like.

speaking of the week, how has yours been so far?
i started off my week with a bang - busy creating new designs for the shop, getting orders out, getting orders in, then even worked out and enjoyed ashley's soccer game (she even scored a goal - go, sis!). then on tuesday, the day was super laaaazy. just one of those days, i just wasn't as motivated. i got a few orders met, but then spent the afternoon blogging and hanging out with mom and ash. we watched letters to juliet while i sewed. i guess i wasn't super lazy but it felt like it when i looked at the clock at noon, then looked at it again and it was 3:00pm.

later that evening, i did end up having a super-sweet time with my childhood best friend, ashley. we had such a good time, i forgot to take pics! it was nice to go out to dinner with an old friend - and to actually go out to dinner! i felt like i hadn't done that since i left chicago! (not that your cooking isn't good, mom. you know i was just happy to enjoy the night out...right, mom? *wink*) we enjoyed our evening catching up and laughing and eating some delish southern bbq. loved it!

and now onto my current obsessions for the week.
i certainly have a quite a bit of them!

i missed the premiere of Glee because my time with ashley was so good, so i plan to watch it today!
(ssssh! don't tell me anything for those of you more loyal gleek fans.)
whenever i watch Glee, i get pretty obsessed with the dancing and the music, especially the music.
i end up downloading all of my fave songs and listening to them over and over and over again.

love the middle!
this is one obsession that i share with my family.
i bought season 1 and i think we've watched an episode or two a night.
it's so hilarious. this family is so normal but also so dysfunctional.
makes for a good sitcom.
love it.

anything ruffles right now - in any shape or form (lots of them, just a little, etc.) - is totally catching my fall-crush eye. though autumn is season is here and as much as i love the chilliness of cool, crisp fall days,
i'm actually enjoying the warmer weather that is still currently taking place.
i think chicago has scarred me for life to ever want any sort of temperature drop. the fact that i can still wear skirts and sandals during this time of year is making me very happy.

even so, my eye is still on the look-out for sweet autumn/winter boots once the temperature does drop. totally digging these 'paper-bag' boots from urban outfitters.
oh heels, i do love you so.

[my photo taken during my berry chill date this past summer with my dear friend, dannon.
miss you and our berry-chill/movie dates!]

this is one obsession (or craving) that will remain unfulfilled,
unless i get that plane ticket to chicago that was on my birthday list last week.
there are no berry-chill within the south carolina area.
sadness. sigh. sigh. big heave. sniff.

now you have to understand that i haven't lived at home for the past few years, so i have never really been able to hang out with the youngest member of the family before moving back. my camera continues to click away at all his adorable, silly moments. so yes, peyton even made it to my current obsession list. but come on?! can't you see why?!

and remember how i mentioned in yesterday's post that peyton thinks he's human? these pics are more proof of that statement. our dog, ahem little brother, doesn't have a little doggy bed like most other normal dogs that i know. he shares a bed with my little sister. he doesn't sleep until the blankets are tucked around him. he lays his head on the pillow like a human. (not by the pillow...he actually sleeps on it.) and he loves his little stuffed monkey.

gah, he's so cute! i can't get over it.

and you, friend?
