Thoughts for Monday 8.29.16


//1// Adulting

I'm really not good at keeping things organized and I have zero motivation to clean my house even though it's needed.


I feel like I spend the whole weekend cleaning and grocery shopping. Yes, I could be more motivated about it and give up some of my free time, but I just don't want to! I think I've finally decided to use part of my budget to get a cleaning service in to my home once or twice a month. I need someone to deep clean the bathrooms and do baseboards and windows. This week I'll be researching some local companies and getting price quotes.


//2// Transitioning to Fall


Fall is almost here and I'm ready, but not ready. I love Fall - the weather, the clothes, the warm drinks, and apple recipes, but Michigan has really hard winters. Knowing the winter is coming makes fall a little depressing. I've decided that I think I need to vacation more in the winter! I hope to implement this over the next few years.


//3// Weekend

On Friday night I decided to pull my wedding dress out of the closet. 


It still fits 8.5 years later! I thought it would be fun if we got a picture with Scout on the train. Then I immediately began to worry he was going to get it dirty... like I'm ever going to wear it again!

Here's what it looked like on the actual day...


Bar Rescue is my jam on the weekends.


Spike TV plays marathons every Sunday. Jon Taffer is so bad ass, and all of the drinks sound so yummy!


These guys are my life. I'm so blessed.



Have a great week.

  1. I wish there was a way to make winter vacations mandatory! I'm ready for summer to wind down, but definitely not ready for winter to be inching closer. Your wedding dress is so gorgeous- I'm sure it was so fun to try it on again after so long!

  5. Your wedding gown is so beautiful! I pulled out my dress the other day, and it was too big...after two kids haha

    But yes - winter vacations should be mandatory. Fall is the best season, but winter is eternal ;)

  10. Love that wedding dress picture!! I spend all Saturday cleaning and food shopping too. A little while ago I tried doing a few chores every night after work and I was not a fan. I prefer to relax on the weeknights and get it all over with on Saturday!

  11. I love your wedding dress, and puppers sitting on it. I hate being an adult and all of the chores! That cocktail looks delightful!

  12. Ugh, I hate cleaning. Adulting equals never ending to-do lists. Yesterday I cleaned the bathroom, today it'll be the kitchen. Oh joy! Awe, beautiful dress. Love the picture with Scout. Michigan winters sound harsh. I don't think I could do it. I lived in Kansas for three years and it was quite the adjustment from the south to the Midwest.

  13. Happy to know about your wedding and hope you had an excellent day! In next month I am planning for my cousin’s wedding and still finding amazing Malibu wedding venues within his budget. Hope to find a spacious venue soon.
