Things I'm really into at the moment

I, as I imagination most people do, go through phases of being super interested in things, people, places, etc. So I thought it would be fun to write up a quick list of things I'm super into at the moment. It would be nice to have this list to look back on and giggle at and I would also love to see who's interested in the same things!

1) Seattle

For those of you who maybe don't know, Seattle is a city in Washington, USA. I am a Pacific Northwest girl and have lived in Oregon for most of my life. I love the idea of Seattle. I love everything it stands for: coffee, fresh seafood, being unique, and being situated in a beautiful spot in the Pacific Northwest. I have never had the opportunity to travel Seattle but I'm really thinking about planning a little trip up. It's only an inexpensive 6 hour bus ride away. It's true I'm not much of a city girl, but I do like to visit them. If you're from Seattle, let me know where I should go! I might also be looking for a blogger friend to show me around (you know, take me to all the cool, unique, blog photo worthy places)!

2) Dove Milk Chocolate
Always and Forever interested in Dove Milk Chocolate. I have a little DIY candy jar on my desk that is normally filled with Dove chocolate. I personally feel like having candy on your desk is essential. When I hate school or work and want to take a break I have chocolate right there. It doesn't really get any better.

3) The Office
TJ and I started The Office last week and it's quickly making its way onto our list of favorite shows. There are parts that are hard to watch/dated but once you get past that it's so funny and easy to watch whenever. I love that. It's great after a long day when I just need a laugh. 

4) Wine
If you've been around here before you'll know I recently turned 21, which is the legal drinking age in America. I've been enjoying trying things out and figuring out what I like. So far I can pretty safely say that I like wine. I've been attempting to try a new one every time I get one, but have been going back to Cabernet as my favorite. Contrary to this, I really thoroughly dislike beer! 

5) The Putt-Putt

A friend of mine wrote a lovely YA book about a young woman finding out who she is and what she wants in life through the meeting of an unlikely friend and their adventures. I love the book and am only 20 pages from the end! I encourage anyone who wants a quick read (it's only 179 pages) and likes YA fiction to order a copy! I bought mine on Amazon

6) Amazon Smile
If you go to instead of regular it donates money to a charity/organization of your choice every time you check out. It doesn't cost anything and helps give back. TJ and I choose to support the Oregon Hillel Foundation while shopping as it's an organization that is very near and dear to us. 

7) Journals
I bought 2 or 3 new journals over this past week... I know... bad! I'm not even half way done with my current journal but I'm thinking about retiring it early and starting a new one. If the journal inspires me the words will come. My current journal doesn't inspire me as much as I'd like it to, and I've had it since October. Normally I fill them up within 3 months but this one has been taking a while. 

8) Planning for the future
I go through phases of mapping out my dream house and looking up cute Baby photography and compiling it into a "future" board on Pinterest. It's just harmless browsing and I know I'll love having all that inspiration in one place when I'm actually ready to use it. I'm on a huge pinterest kick right now.

9) YouTube
I find YouTube as the social media platform that I go through phases of the most. Maybe that's because I'm only a watcher and I don't actually post any videos. But since October I've been loving YouTube, I watch it everyday and my watch later playlist is always so full of videos since I go through my subscriptions box everyday and put new videos on that list so I don't miss them. My favorites at the moment are: Kristee Vetter, SprinkleOfGlitter/Chatter, Bits&Clips & OKBaby.

10) Scarfs
It's not because of the weather! I do live somewhere that's cold, but I've never worn scarfs before and I have so many of them! Over the past 2 weeks I've been wearing a scarf almost everyday, and again, it's not because of the ice or snow or rain or cold. It's because scarfs really tie an outfit together. Especially now that I'm in a boot for my foot I feel like my outfits always need an extra something. Jeans, a jacket and shoe (just one show because my other is a cast) don't really have the full effect that I've been looking for recently. However if I ad a big, fluffy, black scarf to it, I feel like it's put together.

Are we loving any of the same things right now? Do you go through phases with things also? What are you obsessed with at the moment that you're not usually obsessed with? People are so interesting.
