Hi friends! It felt like a good time for a check in, and I love doing these posts because they remind me of all the great stuff I have going on in life!
Making buttons! I am obsessed, and even bought a button maker, though I haven’t had time to try it yet. Tutorial coming soon! Drinking lots of rose. And I’m totally cool with my basic life. Reading so. many. amazing. books. I have almost reached my reading goal for 2017! Wanting to find a literary agent! Playing Hamilton! I just saw it for the second time last week and I love it even more now!
Wishing for a weekend off! Enjoying bingeing Reign. Waiting for foooootbaaaaallll! Liking being able to have real conversations with Squirt. Wondering if I am going to be able to find a literary agent this year. Loving the Red Queen book series. Hoping my podcast Down to Fangirl continues to grow! Needing some sleep. As always. Wearing shorts and tees and flip flops. But ready to be done with summer clothes!
Following lots of pretty bookstagram accounts, find mine @coffeebookswinerepeat! Noticing why the term “threenager” was coined. Knowing that as busy as I am with weddings, it’s going to be a bummer when the season is over. Thinking about how to revamp my query letter. Anticipating FALL. Bring on the boots and sweaters and holidays! Celebrating a successful summer. Laughing at Squirt (as usual). His personality is really coming out these days and he is constantly amusing me. Feeling happy, excited, hopeful, and accomplished.
Hello friends and welcome to another edition of Life Right Now. I haven’t done a Life Right Now post in a long time, and well, there’s a lot going on these days, so I figured I would share some updates! Things have been crazy, in a good way, and I am about a week away from wedding madness season, so life is about to get interesting (and tiring, but again, in a good way). Here’s the happs:
Making bookmarks! I may or may not be obsessed with these watercolor bookmarks. Drinking Corona Light and lots of Chardonnay. Also lots of Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brews. Reading so. many. amazing. books. Seriously guys, I am on fire with the YA reading and it’s so good. Some recent faves are Legend, the Firebird series, and Caraval. Wanting to finish my YA novel! Playing Hamilton! Four and a half months until I get to see it again!
Wishing there were about six more hours in the day. Enjoying the new season of Southern Charm. Minus Landon. Waiting for A Court of Wings and Ruin to come out so I can start the series. Liking our new living room set up (the key was hiding Matt’s instruments and Squirt’s toys). Wondering if I am going to be able to find a literary agent this year. Loving the inspiration from the LA Times Festival of Books and YallWest. Hoping my YA book gets published! Needing some sleep. As always. Wearing shorts and tees and flip flops. Welcome to summer!
Following lots of pretty bookstagram accounts, find mine @coffeebookswinerepeat! Noticing why the term “threenager” was coined. Knowing that summer is going to be crazy busy! Thinking about my next contemporary romance book. Anticipating lots of long, hot days coming soon! Celebrating the publication of my first contemporary romance novel! Buy it here! Laughing at Squirt (as usual). His personality is really coming out these days and he is constantly amusing me. Feeling happy, excited, hopeful, and accomplished.
Hello friends and welcome to another edition of Life Right Now. I cannot believe it is already December, and I cannot believe how often I talk about how fast time is going these days. I guess that means I’m officially old. Bleh. Well, despite it being quiet season on the wedding front, I have been slacking like nobody’s business on the blog front. I’m just not feeling super inspired these days, but hopefully I will find my mojo again soon! In the meantime, here’s what’s happening right now…
Making a couple of cute little crafts to give as Christmas gifts. Drinking red wine! I love my summer whites, but I also enjoy the few months out of the year when the weather is cool and red wine actually sounds appealing to me. Reading I am almost finished with the Lunar Chronicles series and it is so good! Wanting motivation to blog again! Playing Christmas music and all my sassy podcasts.
The Lunar Chronicles series is sooooo good!
Wishing time would slow down! Enjoying the new seasons of Vanderpump Rules and Ladies of London. I heart you Bravo. Waiting for the last book in the Lunar Chronicles to arrive! Liking my work space after a huge decluttering! Wondering if my business is going to continue to grow next year (let’s hope!). Loving the freedom of working for myself. Hoping I start to see some success from my blog and social media accounts. Needing some sleep. I have turned into quite the night owl, which is great except for the rare occasions when Squirt decides to wake up early. Wearing sweaters!!!!
The grizzly at California Adventure is also enjoying sweater weather!
Following lots of pretty bookstagram accounts, I even started one of my own! Find me @coffeebookswinerepeat! Noticing how loquacious Squirt is turning out to be. Knowing that it will be 2017 in the blink of an eye! Thinking about Christmas presents I need to buy. Anticipating the onslaught of business brought on by engagement season. Celebrating the holidays! Laughing at Squirt (as usual). His latest gem: Every time anyone says “Oh Squirt” (using his real name, obvs.), he responds with, “Oh [insert person’s name]”. He’s a character! Feeling happy, content, excited, and pensive.
I just wanna pet the elephant!!!
What’s going on it your life right now? Anything exciting planned for the holidays?
Hello friends and welcome to another edition of Life Right Now. Wedding season has officially ended for me and I finally have a little time to breathe. I’m looking forward to focusing on the blog for a bit, and doing a bit of writing just for funsies (more on that later). But today we focus on the now! Right now I am….
So many good books to read!
Making some fall themed Minnie ears that I cannot wait to share with you. Drinking lots of wine (obvs) but also starting the switch over from iced coffee to hot coffee. Yay weather! Reading I am currently in the middle of Queen of Shadows, which is awesome but long. Wanting it to feel like real fall for good! No more 80 degree days please! Playing Hamilton on repeat. The PBS documentary Hamilton’s America gave me all the feels.
The Disney/Hamilton mash up buttons from Park Bound Buttons were clearly made for me!
Wishing I were in New York. I need some city love these days. Enjoying football season, though both my fantasy teams are sucking hard core. Waiting for the new Pantages season to start in two weeks!!!! Liking my new ability to sleep in because it means I get to stay up late, which is when I do my best work. Wondering if I will ever miss teaching (so far, that’s a big fat no). Loving the freedom of working for myself. Hoping I don’t crash and burn and have to go get a real job! Needing a massage. And I’m pretty sure that has been my “needing” for a long time! Wearing jeans and T-shirts, but reeeeaaalllly hoping for sweaters soon.
From my last trip to the Big Apple :o(
Following the election, even though it’s painful. Noticing that I feel really, truly content with life for the first time in a long time. Knowing that the sacrifices are worth it. Thinking about Christmas and the upcoming holidays. Anticipating holiday decorations at Disneyland. Celebrating all the little things. Laughing at Squirt (as usual) who is obsessed with Boba Fett. When he spent the night with grandparents last weekend, he kept sitting up in the middle of the night and whispering “Boba Fett”; he wouldn’t lay back down until Grandma repeated it back to him. Feeling happy, content, thankful, and at peace.
You know it’s almost Christmas time when the merch comes out!
What’s going on it your life right now? Anything exciting happening? Let me know!
Hello friends and welcome to another edition of Life Right Now, where I totally indulge in talking only about myself (but isn’t that the best part of blogging?). I kid, I kid. I love reading these kinds of posts from other bloggers so hopefully you enjoy this one too! Right now I am….
Making Playbill centerpieces for a Bat Mitzvah. Drinking lots of iced coffee and lots of wine…so the usual. Reading I just finished Eleanor and Park (loved it) and am about to start Cinder. Wanting Matt to be back on summer break! Being a work at home mom is way easier when hubby is home too! Playing a new (to me) podcast called Bitch Sesh and loving it, though we had a rough moment when one of the hosts called Hamilton “simplistic”. Um, no. Wishing I were at Disneyland! I haven’t been in a month!
Enjoying Bachelor in Paradise. Best show on TV :oP Waiting for the new Pantages season to start! Liking Amazon Prime Now, though it’s dangerous. Wondering if I am going to be able to consistently book work in the winter. Loving being a work at home mom! Hoping for some real blog income to come rolling in soon. Needing a massage. And I’m pretty sure that has been my “needing” for a long time! Wearing cotton dresses. Heat wave. Boo.
Following the Olympics (mostly). Noticing that my natural state of being is as a night owl. If I don’t have to wake up early, I’m staying up late! Knowing that leaving teaching was the right decision for me. Thinking about finances, and advertising, and taxes…the joys of owning a business. Anticipating FALL! I am so ready! Celebrating all the little successes. Laughing at Squirt’s new found love of pretending to be a monkey. All. the. time. Feeling relieved, anxious, hopeful, excited, free and positive.

Hey y’all! It’s been a while since I did one of these bad boys, so I thought it was time for a check in. This is how I’m rolling right about now!
Making fabric covered Minnie ears. I have a problem. Drinking one of my favorite summertime drinks: Corona Light with lime and salt. Reading the Throne of Glass series, which is really good so far. Wanting a vacation!. Playing lots of podcasts, mainly Straight Up with Stassi and the Bitch Bible. Wishing I were lounging by the pool with a cocktail!
My office is coming along!
Enjoying The Bachelorette…so far. Waiting for a really awesome package that I am super excited for. Liking my new subscription to Owl Crate. Wondering how life as an entrepreneur is going to treat me. Loving blogging for myself bitches. Oh, and cussing. Hoping for lots of work over the summer. Needing a massage. For reals. Wearing flip flops. Because once I break them out, I refuse to go back to real shoes.
The Owl Crate Young Adult Lit subscription box is my new favorite thing.
Following everything/one related to Game of Thrones. Noticing that Squirt may have inherited my stubborn streak. Knowing that everything will work out in the end. Thinking about finances, and advertising, and taxes…the joys of starting a business.
Basically my motto in life.
Anticipating lots of summer trips. Celebrating Squirt’s second birthday! Laughing at my kid. I mean with my kid.
So close to the perfect selfie. So close.
Feeling relieved, anxious, hopeful, excited, free and positive.
My last day of teaching was three days ago and it was a bittersweet day. But mostly, I am so excited to be my own boss and do something (actually many things) that I really love. I can’t wait to see what comes next!
Hello my lovely readers and welcome to another version of my Life Right Now. “Turmoil” seems like kind of a harsh word, but that’s pretty much the state of things these days. I am coming up on the busiest time at school with all of our drama productions, and engagement season is coming to a close and wedding season is about to kick off. Oh, and I’m preparing to leave teaching and coordinate weddings full time. That’s not terrifying at all. So it’s a hectic time, but an exciting one! Here’s the happs…
Making all kinds of stuff for a bridal show I am attending next weekend. Spray paint and glitter are everywhere! Drinking alcohol has actually taken a backseat as I try to lose the twenty pounds the stress of this school year has packed on me. Still lots of coffee though. Always coffee. Reading some fun and brainless books to relax me at night. Just finished Night Circus and Girl Boss, both of which were fab. Wanting to feel secure in my new career path. Playing the Hamilton album on repeat. Wishing the school year was over!
Falon B Weddings is in full swing! I’ll be at the Knollwood Country Club Bridal Show next weekend!
Enjoying the return of my favorite shows. In particular, How to Get Away with Murder, Survivor and The People’s Couch. Waiting for summer!!!! Liking this random burst of cold weather/rain we’re getting this weekend. Wondering how life as an entrepreneur is going to treat me. Loving hanging with my little dude. Hoping career stuff works out the way I want it to. Needing a massage. For reals. Wearing some summer stuff and then some winter stuff because that’s how So Cal rolls.
Coffee for days!
Following lots of pretty wedding people on my new Instagram, @falonbweddings. Noticing that the terrible two’s may be visiting us early, tantrums for days. Knowing that everything will work out in the end. Thinking about finances, and advertising, and taxes…the joys of starting a business.
One day he is going to hate me for putting pictures like this on the internet.
Anticipating all of my upcoming weddings! Celebrating any and all of my wedding coordinating successes. Laughing at The People’s Couch. One of the best and most underrated shows on TV. Feeling stressed, grateful, tired, anxious, and hopeful.
Always thankful for this guy who supports me no matter what!
