Peace out, 30s!

Saturday was the last day of my 30s. I turned 40 on Sunday. Instead of hanging out in my box filled disaster of an apartment all day, I decided I wanted to do something memorable. I wasn’t really sure where I wanted to go or what to do so I tweeted out, “Trying to decide if I want to head north or south. Maybe I’ll flip a coin.” Someone replied, “Heads.” After clarifying that heads was north, I jumped in my car and went north. I love spontaneous road trips.


Peace out, 30s!

I knew right away that I wanted to see Lake Superior. My first thought was to head to Sugarloaf Mountain in Marquette, MI. It’s about a 2 1/2 hour drive from my apartment. I figured from there that I’d swing over to my rez then circle back down back to home. About 45 minutes into my trip, I changed my mind and decided to go to Pictured Rocks in Munising, MI, instead. I always wanted to go there and it wasn’t that much further than Sugarloaf Mountain. Continue reading

The Story

I heard this on The Voice earlier tonight. I forgot how much I loved it.

You see the smile that’s on my mouth
It’s hiding the words that don’t come out
And all of my friends who think that I’m blessed
They don’t know my head is a mess
No, they don’t know who I really am
And they don’t know what I’ve been through like you do

12 Days.


Nah, I’m not excited at all.

I’m diggin’ the car. My favorite part is that the primer is super polished and it’s missing trim. I’m laughing a bit that I caught the missing trim right away. Watch when he’s closing the door. There are slots below the window where the trim snaps in.

Anyway, the fact that the car is unfinished adds a bit to the video for me. Country/farm setting, guy wrenching on his motorcycle (which is pretty wicked, too), the sunlight… car unfinished but polished so it looks mean rolling down the road.

PS – It’s bugging the heck out of me that I can’t figure out if the car is a ’51 or ’52.

A few of my favorite things

I’ve been a little busy over the past few days. I was finally able to get into one of my storage units. It is the one where the majority of my belongings were stored for the past 6 years. To say there was a lot of stuff in there would be an understatement. My goal is to have the unit empty by the end of the month so my apartment suddenly looks like I just moved in, again.

Anyway. Like I said, it’s been 6 years since I had my hands on most of the contents since there just wasn’t room in TheHut for it. Here are a few of my favorite treasures I couldn’t wait to get my hands on. Continue reading

In My Bag(s) – Second Edition

My "Work Day" Purse

My “Work Day” Purse

This is my current Work Day Purse. I’ve been using a different purse since I started my new/old job and decided it was time to change it up this morning. I know I carry a lot of stuff during the week but I was sort of laughing at exactly how much. I don’t carry this thing outside of work because WHOA. I grab whatever I need out of it and use a different purse in the evenings.

Anyway, the swap inspired me to do a Second Edition of “In My Bag(s)“. I normally carry up to 3 bags to work. I’m not going to take a picture of the other two but I’ll list the contents just for fun. Continue reading
