Glitter in the Morning

You know it's going to be a good day when you wake up in the morning and everything outside is sparkling like glitter was sprinkled around. This is the view that I woke up to this morning. My phone didn’t quite capture all the sparkle off the ice covered trees but I think you get the idea. Gotta love Michigan weather!

Spring has Sprung

A lot happened this weekend. We had a supermoon, a thunder rain/snow storm, and the first day of spring! The full moon was the closest it’s been to the earth since 1993 on March 19th. It was 14% larger than normal. Could you tell? I was driving down the highway and it was gigantic! It looked like it was half the size of the horizon and orange. Unfortunately, by the time I made it home and snagged my camera it looked normal again. I was totally bummed that I wasn’t able to snag a picture.

We also had some pretty awesome thunderstorms yesterday. It was fun to be driving through the big, fluffy chunks of snow only to have them turn into rain. Ahhh, the joys of living in Michigan. But no worries, if you want the weather to change just blink. There must have been a lot of blinking going on yesterday; the weather just couldn’t make up its mind. I’m glad for the rain and the beginning of spring!

 Then the world starts to look like this again. *sign* welcome back color, I've missed you.

Strangely Fascinated

I’m strangely fascinated with Ghost Adventures, which airs Friday nights at 9pm on the Travel Channel. I don’t have cable and had never heard of this show before stumbling upon it on Netflix. Now I watch an episode or two a night. This has been going on for a few weeks now and I still can’t help myself. 

Part of my addiction comes from how Zak dresses and the faces Aaron makes but the other part comes from being terrified! It’s awesome! They use all this new fangled equipment and my eyes water all most every episode (that’s an indicator that I’m scared and utterly creeped out). I want to go get an EMF detector and see what it shows in my house! Muh ha ha…

Freakin' Out!

 {pic from Giggles n' Grins}

I turned thirty over the weekend. Wow, I said it. I didn’t say twenty-five again or fifteen times two, I did however cringe when I typed it (proof reading  is going to be was hard). I don’t feel any different than I did a few days ago but it was pointed out to me that I canceled my own birthday dinner because the weather was bad and that would not have happened in my twenties. That’s how you know you’re old you do “responsible” things… sometimes. 

But I digress, I accidentally dressed like a ballerina this morning for work. That’s the point of my ramble. I wore a light pink skirt, white sweater, paired with some white tights and totally rockin’ boots and had my hair in buns.  I didn’t mean to but when Chris pointed it out the nine-year-old in me, infinitely pleased with herself, smiled and twirled a few times. What girl doesn’t want to be a ballerina?

I like the way I look today but is it okay for a thirty-year-old? I noticed in the mirror that I was looking old. Do I have to change my style? I do not want to be that woman getting a makeover because she can’t dress her age. I tend to me more courageous in my attire the older I get. I like the freedom that comes with not caring so deeply what people think. I’m totally freaking out about what it means to be thirty! Screw it, I’m just going to do my own thing and if anyone asks I’m twenty-five.

I'm easily distracted by shiny things and brownies. I love autumn and all things associated with it... except raking leaves. I'm a HUGE fan of smiling until your face hurts and laughing so hard milk comes out your nose.
