My Twentysomething Life

I Do, Make, Read, Watch, Eat…

I’m not out of ideas

Even though I did not blog all weekend, I am not out of ideas.  I’m just out of memory.  I keep forgetting to do things to write the blog posts that I have thought of.

Blog posts coming as soon as I remember to do what I need to do to write them.

New clothes–I have been meaning to write this one for a while now.  I just haven’t taken the pictures of my new clothes yet!  And now they’re all dirty, so this will have to wait at least one more day, but probably two since Adam will need to be free to take the pictures for me, but hopefully soon you will get to see a blog post of my new work clothes.  They are pretty cute 🙂

Crafts–I have done a few crafts recently, and I am excited to show them to you!  But I, again, just haven’t taken the pictures yet, but my goal is to do this tonight, so hopefully you will have some new crafty photos coming to you soon!

Lessons from the Book of Job–I recently finished reading Job for my bible reading and I had some interesting thoughts come up throughout that I wanted to share with you.  I just need to get out my journal so I can remember what they were!  But hopefully this one will be ready sometime this week.

I hope you all keep reading until then!

Later tonight–a post about my weekend and some movies I have been watching.

As Promised

I promised you a clothing rant, so here it goes.

Dressing up for work and other things seriously stresses me out.  My favorite outfit is my blue and green converse, jeans, and a white t-shirt.  If I could wear that every day, I definitely would!  Can someone find me a job where that would fit the dress code please?

I have something to admit, and if you are a friend of mine you probably already realize this, but I’m don’t usually put forth a lot of effort in what I wear.  Putting in effort into what I wear honestly stresses me out!  I don’t know why, it’s hard to put it in words, but it just does.  But this weekend I did some shopping for work clothes, because I have come to grips with the fact that I seriously need some, and I realized something about myself.

I have horrible body image.  I don’t like how I look in just about everything and I am very critical of myself.  This is something that I’m trying to work on, but it’s really hard.  I hardly ever look in the mirror and think, yeah I look good, unless I’m wearing my trusty white tee.

I did find a few things that I really liked when i was shopping and ended up buying them, but now I have to try and put together outfits, which is also really hard work for me.  I have a lot of ideas for what I would like to look like, just look at my Pinterest boards, but I have absolutely no follow through.

My mom is coming to visit this weekend and I’m hoping she can help me do some more shopping because I really need help in this whole “professional” clothing area.  I just don’t know what looks good, what is supposed to go together, and what is appropriate for work.  So if I am unsuccessful this weekend, I could use a shopping buddy!

So wish me luck on shopping this weekend, and hopefully I’ll have some photos of my finds for you.  And also, I would appreciate prayer for my body image issues, I’d like to feel happy with who I am 🙂  I know that God made me and I’m beautiful, but sometimes it’s hard to remember that when I look in the mirror.

So there you have it, a confession and a rant about work clothes, as promised.

What a Weekend

Wow, it feels like it has been longer than only 2 days since my last blog post!  So much has happened since Friday.

Friday night at work there wasn’t too much going on, so I started watching a new show on Netflix.  Lately I had been watching tons of Grey’s Anatomy, but I am all caught up and ready for the new season this Thursday!!  So I have been looking for a new show to watch, so I picked Pretty Little Liars.  I only watched two episodes on Friday, but that was enough to get me hooked!  Question: How do those pretty little liars get their hair to look so perfect?!

After work, I watched What Not To Wear and waited for Adam to come home from playing with some of his friends.  When he got home, we took a late night trip to Walmart, which we have not done in forever.  We browsed and got some grocery shopping done and got home around one AM.  But it was fun to spend that time together.

Saturday morning we both just woke up around 9.  We took it easy in the morning, reading and watching cartoons, and then we went out to run some errands.  Adam’s mission: Yugioh cards.  My mission:  some new work clothes.

Adam was successful at the first store we went to: Target.  Then we went to Books a Million where I bought the new Nicholas Sparks book (!) and got a great deal on it with my member coupons!  Then we went to the mall and did some shopping (there will be a shopping/clothing/work clothes rant coming soon).  We finished our excursion with Pals (for me) and a pretzel (for Adam).  Delicious!

When we got home, Adam and Jacob played some Yugioh and I crafted upstairs (pics to come) and watched more Pretty Little Liars.  Then Jacob left, I made dinner, and we went over to Jacob and Lauren’s to play some games with friends.  It was so fun!  We made another stop at Walmart on our way home, for a full length mirror, can you believe that we didn’t have one?!

Sunday morning we woke up, went to church, and had lunch at Taco Bell.  Then we watched some Big Bang Theory, Amanda came over to do laundry, and we called my parents.  After church in the evening Adam and I watched Harry Potter 7.1 and just hung out.  It was a great weekend!

Shop til you Drop

I love to go shopping.  Even when I don’t have money (it is more fun with money though).  I like to window shop too.  My favorite stores to shop at are Kirklands, Hobby Lobby, Target and JCPenney.  I could also spend hours in a bookstore.

I love birthdays and Christmas because I get to take myself on a little shopping free.  How fun!

I’m always looking for some new stores to shop at.  What are some of your favorites?
