Casual Saturday

Today was a really great, relaxing day. Eric let me sleep in until 11 (what!) and then we cuddled on the couch with Winny for the morning. We grabbed brunch at a favorite 24-hour diner, Grand Coney. I ordered their breakfast sandwich for the first time and it was really good. We ran an errand to get Eric's guitar fixed, walked around the mall for a bit and then went to see Argo finally. I really enjoyed it! I was on pins and needles at some points though - ha! Now I think we're heading out for a chill night at our favorite pub, or staying in and ordering a pizza. Either way, today was perfect.


I'm honestly all about the simple life. Like grabbing brunch on Saturdays, having a slow day, catching an afternoon movie, not having crazy plans all the time, cuddling with Winny, playing Super Nintendo when I want, spending a quiet night at home with a pizza or running into all of our friends at our favorite bars. It's one of the biggest reasons I stayed in Michigan after college too. I just want a simple life in a small city that I adore. Plus, being so close to everything I truly love like Lake Michigan, adventures I've had in this state and family. I'm truly content here. I was being interviewed the other day and was asked, "What really excites you about your future?" And I honestly laughed and said, "Staying here and growing old in Michigan with my career that I love, my family and the house that I someday buy and hope to stay in forever." Silly, right?





Well tomorrow's agenda holds a lot of to-do's. We finally evicted our roommate squirrel, so now that I can go downstairs I have a mountain of laundry to finish up. I also got the prints in the mail for my gallery wall, so we'll be hanging that. I need to clean, catch up on a few more outfit posts and plan for the new week. I'm so thrilled it's March. We have so many fun plans this month and the weather already seems like spring is arriving soon. Have a great and relaxing rest of your weekend! I'll be back soon with some photos from a local fashion event I attended on Friday!

  2. i'm loving everything about this outfit! and i'm with you on the small town life. chad and i live in the historic district and walk to work every day in historic downtown. it's not too shabby, if i do say so myself. we look forward to sitting on a porch swing, and sipping ice tea when we're eighty. {just like we do now} old souls. ;)

  3. Sounds like the most serene type of Saturday! I can't tell whether I'm more inclined towards small town or city life. I'm in that awkward transition phase in my life right now where I have to start thinking about these types of things, yikes!

  4. Always a good thing when you have a GREAT day! I'm glad you enjoyed it. You look beautiful as always! Saw you and Eric at the By Misha presentation this past fashion week and meant to say hi, but sadly my shy-self didn't allow me to. I will make sure to say hi next time! In any case your ensemble looks great!

  28. I am with you on gaming and cuddle days. Some weekends you don't want to go anywhere that's out of your pajamas. Plus 2-player games are the best way of combining the cuddles and fun.

  29. Hurrah for getting rid of the squirrel finally!

    Also, you and your day seem to fit each other well. Both casual but lovely.

  31. This post is just what I needed to read this week. We're closing on a house in Saginaw soon and the city gets such a bad rap because certain parts have high crime. We plan on moving to Grand Rapids after the hubby graduates college because we love Michigan and especially that city.

  38. Oh my goodness, Argo was SO intense! I was seriously about to cheer at the end when they got away, I was so into it!
    That sounds like such a lovely day, and also... I like your vision of the future. That's what excites me, too, to someday have a house of my own with my love, have kids, and live life with the ones I love the most. I think that's the best future ever.
    You look adorable, and I want your shirt! So cute!
