Birdie’s Eye View • January + February 2015

February 22, 2015

It has been hard to find fun time  in the mountains of snow.  I am so over it already!  I cannot even contain my disdain for the snow and the frigid weather.  Living in Michigan is not an ideal place for someone who doesn’t like winter, but it’s a great place 8-9 months out of the year.  Despite the depressing feeling, I have found some fun and happy times in the winter.

My sister and my mom left to do a cheerleading competition with my niece.   My dad and I decided to have a Daddy/Daughter date at our favorite restaurant, Cracker Barrel.  Ugh, I love the pancakes and the french toast and the hot chocolate … this is making me hungry!

Bird’s Eye View • Winter Break 2014

January 7, 2015

Ugh, winter break is over officially!  Now, let’s be real; I started getting ready for work on Sunday – just saying!  I have to say one of the benefits of working in higher education is getting 2 weeks off from work! I know that’s childish but after the semester I had, I needed a break!

I literally watched Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime, and good old fashion DVDs!  It was pretty much the most relaxing I have ever been!  It was so much fun!

I took some time to organize a little bit; it was great to see things in their proper spaces.  I am still working on it but hopefully, I will knock this out before training at the end of this week!

Food is a necessity, ESPECIALLY since the cafeteria isn’t open yet! :)  When I went to Target, I saved around $40 on a bill that was over a $100.  Cartwheel is pretty much the best thing since sliced bread!

Lastly, these J. Crew slippers are flipping amazing!  They are like stylish, domesticated Uggs on your feet.  Get them while they are still available people! :)

How was your break?  Did you do anything fantastic?  Or did you just veg like me?

Bird’s Eye View • Another Wedding

December 1, 2014

I stood in my fourth wedding.

However, this has to be one of my all time favorite weddings because I was a groomsmaid!  I was so flipping excited, I had no idea how to contain myself!

So here are some pictures from my Instagram that talks about how much fun I had.  I surely did not want to come back home at all.  I loved every minute of it.  It was seriously the time of my life – I definitely needed it.
