What I Am Loving Right Now

What I Am Loving Right Now l wanderingroot.com

I do not know what is going on with me this week but I am definitely in vacation mode or maybe holiday/Fall mode.  Work wise I have been so unmotivated.  Cooking sounds terrible, I am feeling uninspired in the kitchen.  I just want to bury my face in Cafe Sol salads and Coconut Bliss Ice Cream.  

I have even been cuddling Cash in the mornings so he will at least take 1 nap a day, otherwise 14 months has proved to be a no napping zone for us.  I have appreciated the extra cuddles and it has allowed me to get some enjoyment reading done.  It is funny, when I was nursing all the time I started to feel like all I did was sit in a rocking chair all day, reading books, and scanning the internet and after a period I kind of got tired of all the sitting and sort of felt like I was so lazy and unproductive.  A part of me could not wait to get up and running around again.  Then this week I am totally okay with sitting, because it means I get to cuddle with Cash and just bum out.  I need to snap out of the bumming out though but those cuddles... oh those cuddles.  He is my squishy, my love bug.  I love it.  Even with 3 teeth coming in this month {2 molars!} and the lack of sleep and one loooonnnnngggg night, 14 months is proving to be pretty awesome.  He is turning into such this little boy.  He loves to cuddle, loves his blanket, is climbing up the the changing table {nothing is safe anymore}, makes truck noises when he drives his trucks around, thinks opening and climbing in the dishwasher is the best thing and eats everything!  I have to make sure I eat when he does otherwise I won't get to touch my food, he wants to eat my food too!  I truly love just hanging out with him.  It is the best.  Truly.

While I may be lacking motivation in some areas of my life in other areas I am excited, thrilled actually to be growing and moving in a direction I have dreamt of.  New things are exciting things.  I can't wait to see what the future holds!

Now that Fall is in full force and the holidays are fast approaching {what?!} there are so many things I am loving that scream Fall.  :)

1. Chrysoprase and Hammered Chain Bracelet - I recently made this bracelet and am totally in love with it.  Chrysoprase is quickly becoming one of my favorite stones.  It is the perfect piece moving into Fall.

2.  Coconut Pumpkin Spice Latte - Tieghan hit it out of the park with this version of the coveted PSL.  It is amazing.  Enough said.

3. The Girl on the Train - Have you read this?  If not, you must.  I started and finished this book within a few days.  See, those cuddles with Cash allowed me to get some reading done!  I loved this book, so so good!

4. TOMS Taupe Suede Women's Desert Wedge - These wedges are adorable!  I love this color too, I have been on the hunt for some wedges in this color.  I need to go somewhere to try them on though.  I have gotten so picky about shoes.  I would rather have a few good quality shoes that are super comfortable then a lot of shoes that kill my feet.  That is what staring down 30 does to you, you get picky about your feet being comfortable.  I still want cute though!

5. This quote.  I recently ran across it on Instagram and it instantly resinated with me.  I can get really bad about getting stuck into a routine, especially with having a toddler.  Routine is great for kids.  The downside of routine is that I find myself doing the same thing day in and day out which does not allow for growth.  To grow you have to do something different.  This was the perfect reminder.

What are you loving right now?  What must I try?  I love hearing what other people are into or what they have discovered.
