Excited About…

I have to admit, moving blogs has been a little rough. Not actually moving I guess, but the lack of traffic to the new site that we worked so hard to build. If I wasn’t checking traffic stats or comments daily {alright..hourly minute by minute}, I probably wouldn’t care, but since moving, I’ve been a little discouraged. This isn’t to say I am not SO SO grateful for the following and blog friends I have. Oh gosh, I probably sound like an idiot. Sometimes, I just have really low blog esteem and need to stop comparing myself to other, more successful bloggers.  Anywho, enough with the negative. I decided to make a fun post..which may turn into a series.. to talk about current things that make me happy. Now remember, this is a fashion/lifestyle blog so I’m keeping it very light and materialistic. Ok so let’s begin….

1. As you may have seen on my Instagram, Twitter, Pose or blog posts, I bought an amazing M.S.G.M sweatshirt that I have just been DYING to wear. So in other words, I’m pretty excited about it. Well then I hop on Pinterest the other day and who do I see wearing it?!!? My style icon, Taylor Tomasi Hill. Amazing. And you know, we both are from Dallas? We are practically sisters.

2. I don’t know if I’ve really discussed this on The Now before, but I am a huge music fan. I know that sounds so vague because who doesn’t like music? But see, I like good music. One of my favorite bands, Muse has a new single called Madness and I am obsessed. I watched the video {with Erin Wasson..another Dallas girl who could be the long lost triplet to TTH and I} 400 times as loud as possible last night while I thought I was alone in my house. You know when you are alone in a car and you turn the music up really loud to drowned out your voice as you belt out the song? Well I was doing that so loud in my house that I didn’t hear my husband come home. He was entertained. I was not. But then I just listened to Madness 3 more times and felt whole again.

3. My book list. Now, for anyone who knows me, they know I’m not a big reader so this may seem strange. BUT my friend, Haley, recommended Loose Diamonds by Amy Ephron so I decided to give this reading thing a try again. Once I started reading it, I was hooked. It is a bunch of short stories {for anyone with readers ADD like myself, this is a bonus} about Amy’s life and what made her who she is. I particularly loved her chapter on being psychic. Although her powers seem much stronger than mine. And now I’ve decided since I am on a reading kick, I need to finish the last Hunger Games. And then maybe Carole Radziwill’s book. Hooray.

4. Don’t let my love of reading or music fool you. I am a boring old couch potato who loves junk TV as much as my friend Taylor. Like my new “About ” page states…I am a reality TV addict and Bravo is my drug of choice. Can we talk about the RHNJ pleeease?!?! Anyway, since it’s a start of a new season, tons of my favorite shows are premiering and I am just so giddy. I’m especially looking forward to the premiere of New Girl!

See, that totally got my mind off of everything else for 15 minutes. So what are you excited about??? Please remember to keep your comments shallow and materialistic.

  4. I can’t tell you how much my emotions are wrapped up in my blogs. My self esteem literally depends on my stats and comments. Plus, comparison is a b*tch. Keep your head up and feel free to tweet/e-mail me for moral support! haha!
