it's tuesday and this is my brain

I halfway wrote a post in my head but it wasn't coming out right on paper so you just get what's happening in my head so I can post something besides pics of Bauer dressed as a pumpkin. My Halloween dislike does not pass on to animals in costume. Just scroll down if that's all you're here for.

- I went shopping and I don't get J. Crew. Why is is so damn expensive? I live in Texas - I have no use for $80 sweaters at the outlet, but thanks.

- I think too many people are on to TJ Maxx/Ross/Burlington Coat Factory because good stuff is harder to find there. Since when did Steve Madden and Betsy Johnson become the norm? I think Michael Kors is headed there next.

- Does anyone watch Conan? He is my favorite and this week he is doing the best bits from the past twenty years and I am super excited. If you have never seen Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, youtube him at the Star Wars premiere and at The Weiner Circle in Chicago. I think you will die laughing and if not, then that makes me sad.

- I thought I was over the food truck trend, but a new one opened pretty close to our house. Andrew and I went yesterday for lunch (we carpooled and he went home "sick" but felt well enough for a fun lunch) and it just made me so happy because the woman running it was all "Yes, the suburbs need fun stuff to do!" So now we will be devoted customers as we love supporting local businesses. Plus the Taco Nuts truck was pretty awesome. Sorry, no pics, but trust me.

- And... what you are waiting for... Bauer in his Halloween costume. Could he be cuter? No, probably not. Can't you tell he's thrilled?

The top left, he is just confused as to what's happening. By the time we got to the bottom left, he was so over it. Love that killer look he's giving me. Sorry, kitty.


  1. i'm with you on best-kept secrets that are being let out of the bag. there was this obscure store that sold EVERYTHING in my city and it was go-to for almost everlasting. now all of a suddeM, NOTHING is there and i'm like WHO IS BUYING ALL OF MY STUFF?!

    Vodka and Soda

  2. They are building a Ross and a TJ by my house and I'm a little excited. I wonder what the best days/times to shop are to get first dibs at the good stuff. This is what we need to find out!

  3. Ohmygosh Bauer is so so cute! I can't pick out my favorite picture -- I love all of them! Dexter would not appreciate a Halloween costume. I don't even think we could get one on him.

  4. Ross has been picked over since ,y high school days, I don't even walk in there anymore. TJ Maxx and Marshall's are certainly becoming that way as well. It pisses me off! When I was in high school and college, hardly anyone carried Coach. I loved it and bought them all. Now thanks to the Outlets, everyone and their mom's grandmother has a Coach bag. I switched to Michael Kors, and now everyone is starting to carry them. It makes me so sad. And J Crew is entirely overpriced for their plain Jane sweaters! Agreed.

  5. I don't have the patience to shop at places like Ross or TJ Maxx, the stores in our area are always a mess and I hate digging through it all... and it doesn't help that I'm not crazy about clothes shopping to begin with, hah!

    I'm Team Coco! ;)

    These pictures of Bauer are so freakin' cute! Just makes you want to hug him and squeeze him and love him forever!

  6. I actually have a pair of Michael Kors sunglasses that I got from Burlington Coat factory! Haha! I so want to go to a food truck event!! Bauer is not impressed with you!! He looks cute though!

  7. Say cheese Bauer!

    I've never been a fan of Marshalls for clothes, although I have had luck with dresses there. I haven't found shoes or a bag there in forever. Still loving the homegoods though.

  8. I think I just have bad luck. My mom can got to Ross or Marshalls at anytime and find amazing things. Myself....NEVER. Now I always find goodies at Home Goods!!

    How long did Bauer keep his costume on/

  9. I didn't think they made costumes for cats! He's pretty cute it that outfit though :) I've seen Michael Kors stuff at Tuesday Morning! The one in West U has handbags!

  10. Oh my gosh he is so cute in his Halloween costume...and I agree with you about stuff being picked over! It's so frustrating =(


  11. Sooo adorable! The bottom left picture would be great for a kitty dating website profile, haha.

  12. hahaha those pictures of Bauer are hilarious...Don't let his facial expressions confuse you...he totally loves his outfit ;-)

  13. the 'i am totally unamused by this' pic is my fav!

  14. I don't even go into JCrew anymore. Frustrating! Bauer is adorable and that's amazing he sat still for that long!

  15. OMG Bauer looks SO CUTE as a pumpkin! I love it.
