Obsessions Regarding This Moment Right Now

My mind is so full of everything right now. I'm obsessed with lots of things right now, so lets see what those are.

1. ROME!

I'm going to Rome in January!! I've never been abroad, so I'm very much excited about this. I've been reading guide books and attempting to learn (VERY) basic Italian. I really just want to be able to ask for a cup of coffee (Posso avere un espresso?). Even though it's only two weeks, I'm very eager to go. Andiamo!! 

2. Pie (Or Something Else To Bring To Thanksgiving)

This is going to be the first Thanksgiving that I haven't spent with my family. Although I am bummed about it, it gives me an excuse to bake a pie. I'm thinking a Pear Custard Pie or an apple pie. Choices choices. 

3. The Smell of Fall

The beautiful colors. The crisp air. The sound of the leaves crunching under your feet. It's so magical. I love it! But when the leaves are wet, like they have been here for a while, they just kinda cling to my shoes. It's annoying cause then they end up in my house.  Oh well.

4. Law & Order: SVU

One awful thing about Netflix is how they have multiple seasons of a great show. So, for the past few weeks, all I've been watching is SVU. Olivia Benson? Yeah, she's a badass. Stabler? Hard headed, yet lovable. I'm starting to get down to the end of the seasons, so I'm not sure what I'm going to do once I'm done. 

5. Paradis

It's French electronic band. But it's not like a normal electronic band, its way better. Words can't describe it. Just listen and fall in love. 


Fall Bucket List

If you know me in real life, you know I LOVE Joy the Baker and Shutterbean. These ladies inspire me everyday and I wish we were friends in real life. I did meet Joy in March, so I guess that kinda counts. But anyways, they have this podcast and mentioned a Fall Bucket List. And I thought. Yes. Yes, this is something I need to do. So here we go. List for improvements in my life for the Fall time!

1. Make Pumpkin Something -- Muffins, pancakes, pie. I don't know. I just want pumpkin everything!

2. Work on Fall Fashion -- Really into skinny jeans + sweater + combat boots + scarf right now, but I'd like to expand on it a little more.

3. Carve a Pumpkin -- Again. Pumpkin everything! And its an excuse to roast some seeds. Yummmm

4. Drink My Weight in Cider -- Fall is full of wonderful foods (and drinks). It's only Fall if you drink and eat tons of wonderful food.

5. Keep Biking (Even When It's Cold) -- I didn't bike hardly at all last Fall, and it's so amazing riding over crunching leaves. I really should do this more often.

6. Start A Podcast -- I've been wanting to do this for ages, so I think it's time I start one.

What are your Fall Bucket List items??


3. Get A Passport -- 21 Before 21

So today, I stood in line for an hour at the post office so I could apply for my passport. Have you ever been to a post office in the middle of a city at noon? Yeah. Don't do it. It's not fun. It's crowded and no one will help you for the first 20 minutes that you're there. But. In the end. It was worth it. In 4-6 weeks, I will have a passport. What am I going to do with said passport? Lots of things. More to come on that later.
