current obsession wednesay: another random batch for you!!


i'm guilty. 

i think it has been ages since i wrote up a FULL current obsessions wednesday's post. partially because i haven't really been drooling over too much lately, believe it or not. not since the days of christmas wish lists. and not since all those tempting sales were popping up all over blog world and in the real world. but i do have a few things up my sleeve.

so here we go, folks.
 welcome back, current obsessions wednesday. 

lots and lots of reading.


when i start reading, i get on a major roll. i wouldn't say i read a lot of books all the time but i def. have my spurts - and i'm in the midst of one of my spurts. ever since i got into the hunger games series, i can't stop. i keep looking for the next fix. after h.g. i picked up matched (recommended!). i love my classics and the books that make you think, but lately i've been in the mood of something more on the easy reading side with a story that can suck you right into it. and those past 4 books have done their job. we'll see how the next two on my list do.
 
mickey-dee's hot chocolate. 


i know, i know. so many people are against mickey-dee's food and what-not. but dude, their mcafe beverage's rock, especially their hot chocolate and for $1 buck. you can't beat that. when the fam and i were in atlanta during the snow storm and MD's was the only place open, we chilled here downing these babies. yum.

pandora rings.

first off i love my pandora bracelet. ryan's mom gave me a bracelet and has given me a charm for every birthday and christmas he and i have been together. while visiting ryan's family, margaret took me to a jewelry store that carries pandora and oh my goodness, i fell in love with their stackable rings. *swoon*
 
all things hearts.
  
i've always loved anything with hearts, but even more so lately as more and more hearts are popping up in time for the most romantic day of the year! i actually ordered one of gracie's heart headbands and plan to show it off in an outfit post soon enough. the other two are on my list!
canvas cuties.

 

and who has NOT seen these cutie canvases that popped up last week in Linds' studio?! are they not sooooo darling? i'm in love with this camera one so she needs to hurry up and restock soon. *hint, hint*

okay, so there you have it. 
my random current obsessions. 
if you've followed them before, it's really not that surprising. i'm already random as it is.

am i alone in any of my current obsessions?
and what are you obsessing over right now, friend? 
care to share? 

much love.
[happy wednesday, friend.]

p.s. don't forget the sweet shop credit giveaway by Goose and Trisser?

  10. McDonalds also makes some mean choc chip cookies. You know, for times when you might feel like eating your chocolate instead of drinking it :)

  13. I seriously love reading! It totally trumps blogging, which I also love, to the point where everything in my world basically stops so I can finish a book. Not healthy, I know.

  14. Love your list honey! And I have to say, I'm kinda like you. Not lusting over too too much these days. I think I'm in a winter slumber or something :) xoxo

  15. I am finally back to reading. I am starting out by reading "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo"! Kind of excited about it seeing as how everyone has read it and they loved it.

    Ohmgee, love me some Mickey D's fries. They are the bomb. Haven't had the hot cocoa, though. I'll try it out sometime! =]

    xo. kf.

  23. ok I need to read Matched, and I need your nail polish. I wish I had some books to swap with you. Well I do, I have a whole Ikea bookshelf but do you read John Grisham?

    Oh I know have you read I am Number Four? We could swap Matched for that?

  24. Every single book pictured above is on my 'to read' list except for The Hunger Games books. I already finished those.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I get into those reading modes where I have to get all these books and read book after book. Glad Hunger Games made you want to read more.

    Yay! I hope you liked the headband :) Can't wait to see it in an outfit post! (btw I wore your pink poppy headband on Christmas eve - I will have to see if I can find a pic).

    Love those stackable rings! Very pretty!

  26. I always read young adult books when I need a break from my hoity-toity literature and classics. I read the Hunger Games not too long ago and I loved it, I'm waiting to get my hands on Catching Fire from the library! I read the whole Louie Rennison series recently as well, they are so funny and since the author is british, she puts a fun glossary in the back of each book.
