Random Brain Dump..

My blogging "come back" has been lackluster to say the least and for that I apologize. I've had a hard time finding the creativity and motivation. I draw a blank every time I sit down at my desk to write despite the list of topics I have written down. So in an attempt to channel that creativity today I'm just going to write whatever random thoughts come to mind. Enjoy ;)

  • The weather change has really done a number on me. I've had a constant headache for two days now and I'm finally over my first cold of the season. While I'm not the biggest fan of fall {because it means that summer is over and winter is coming..} Grand Rapids sure is beautiful with all of the trees changing colors. I already miss the warm weather though...
  • Speaking of Grand Rapids we finally feel settled in and that we are home. It's such a fun city and there is always so much to do. I can't wait to continue to explore it and experience all it has to offer. I have a feeling that we'll be here for a while ;)
  • Today was my first day off since I started at Macy's sixteen days ago. Granted, half of my shifts are only 3-6 hours so it doesn't really feel like I haven't had a day off yet. I still have time to keep up with house duties, my TV shows, and blogging {when I feel like it} so it isn't too bad. I definitely thought that I was done with retail years ago, but it's the best job for me right now. I might even stay after the holiday season is over and work one or two days a week while in school.
  • I'm loving that all of my TV shows are back. When the weather is colder I love curling up on the couch at night and watching my shows. As of now I'm watching Sons of Anarchy, SVU, Scandal, How to get Away with Murder, and Revenge.
  • Duke has become a cuddle bug and I love it! Almost every night he hops in our bed and curls up in between Thomas and I. It is my new favorite thing :) He's such a little ham.
  • We're heading to the East side this weekend and finally get to see our families and friends that we haven't seen since we moved in August! It'll be a jam packed weekend, but I can't wait :) I've really missed my grandparents and brother. Hopefully I remember to take pictures so I can write a weekend recap post next week.
  • I am completely overwhelmed at the idea of having to revamp my wardrobe for grad school. I've always been a yoga pants + hoodie kind of girl and that isn't going to fly anymore. I've slowly begun to pick up a few things here and there, but I'm hoping for a big shopping trip with my grandma before school starts. I've started a Pinterest board and if any of you have outfit or fashion blogs recommendations please send them my way! I mainly need tops and accessories.


  1. My company switched to a uniform policy lately which is pretty much the greatest thing in the world. I wear jeans and a black t-shirt every single day. Except, the idea of having to move & get a job elsewhere seems daunting now... because I will have to do what you're doing, and completely revamp my wardrobe. Good luck with it!!

    1. Thanks! Since I have a good amount of time to plan, I've found that it helps doing it in small steps instead of one huge shopping trip :)

  2. Love the fall michigan weather! I work at macy's as well, and the whole black thing I have to wear is out of control! I feel so dark at my internship and out with friends. Holiday season is almost up though, right.... (ha!)
