New Obsessions

Before I start today’s post I must explain yesterday’s absence. I had this post planned for yesterday and then I learned the news of Robin Williams on Monday evening. It felt wrong for me to post about random things when my heart felt so heavy. I loved Robin Williams the actor, the humanitarian, the comedian. His movies resonated with all of us and he will be greatly missed.

These are my obsessions….at least for now

1. Buda Juice: This juice bar opened across the street from our house and I seriously wish it wasn’t so dang expensive cause I would go EVERY SINGLE DAY! But once a week treat for now and making my own at home will have to do. I have been drinking Green Monster Smoothies for 5 years now and it’s fun to mix things up!  Current fav is the Carrot, Cucumber, Apple combo!

2. My Hobo Cross body: I bought a hobo cross body bag about 2 years ago and I just rediscovered it in my closet and I have been loving the look for transitioning my wardrobe from Summer to Fall. It’s beautiful, a great size and the brown is the perfect brown! LOVE!

3. My Q and A a day journal: 365 days in a year, 365 questions. The same question on the same day each year to see how you have grown, changed and what your life is like from year to year. Everyone needs this!

4. New Books: I have downloaded several new books and I have been pouring through them like no tomorrow. I plan to do a post dedicated to all the books I am reading, or will be reading over the next few months. It makes me so happy to find new books to love and I have goodreads, twitter and other blogs to thank for that. I love hearing recs so please leave yours in the comments!

 

What are you obsessing over and loving lately?

  3. LOVE high-end juice bars (and coffee houses for that matter) but it’s so insane how much that stuff adds up to if you visit often. And no, stuff from reasonably-priced grocery stores is NOT the same!

  4. I’ve always wanted to get one of those Q&A books. It’s so hard to find time to journal, but just answering a question every day would be so much easier. I also love new books! Even new old books. I just love book shopping, but I need to stop because I have so many things on my shelves I haven’t read yet.

    I’ve never heard of a journal like that, but it looks awesome! I love that bag, too! My purse is totally worn out, but I need something crossbody because of my neck. Now, I’m just looking for the right one. I’m at so many doctors appointments all of the time, it needs to be large enough to hold folders with paperwork, but not be too big.

    I had a Q&A journal in college and did not keep up with it. It was such a fun concept, though. Maybe I should try again now that I’m older!

  17. The Q&A book is a great idea! I used to journal all the time but since getting married, I rarely do it! I’m obsessed with biographies/food memoirs lately! I’m currently in two, and have another waiting on the shelf for me!

    That was awesome of you to have a moment of silence for Robin Williams. Tragedies have a way of putting things in perspective. That Buda Juice looks good.

    Lovely obsessions. I really like the warm, reddish-brown crossbody – I’m a huge fan of cross-bodies because they’re so utilitarian and comfy. If I could, every purse/bag I have would have the ability to convert into a cross-body.

    Also, love the idea of the Q&A journal! At the blogher conference this year, one of the speakers (the Bloggess) mentioned “we’re all writers… we write on paper, in diaries, on the wall, on our arms…” and I thought ‘yes, yes, yes!!!’ There’s a joy to writing and going back to re-visit it. The idea of giving different perspectives to the same question, year after year, appeals to me immensely. What a valuable book to have…

  29. I have that Q & A book and LOVE it, although I am not great about responding everyday. However, hopefully in three years it will show that I have grown and no longer a procrastinator. Right now I have been obsessing over block heels, probably because I don’t have one and keep seeing them everywhere. Enjoy your weekend

  34. I’m really interested in that journal. What a great way to really make you think and get to know yourself better. I think many generations in your family will appreciate this if you ever choose to pass it down.
