Hey, hey! How’s it going on your end? I’m doing pretty well considering the fact that I got into a minor car accident last night. That was my first accident so I was pretty shaken up about it at first, but I’m alright now. Today it’s just a bunch of phone calls to insurance companies and the auto body shop.
So, I thought I’d brighten my day and yours by sharing some of my recent Marshall’s finds. I am an avid Marshall’s shopper – mostly for their home goods, cooking ware, shoes, and sometimes their random healthy snacks. They have some great deals on coconut oil, too, FYI.
My most recent loot from Marshall’s included some home decor. I am sharing just a few of my favorite items.
How freakin’ perfect. Cute, humorous, and so fitting to me. Can it get any better? It also doesn’t hurt that it matches the color scheme of my room either.
This wall art.
Finding this wall art in Marshalls was like a sign. On this particular day, I was feeling really bummed out and overwhelmed with the whole graduate school application process. I was feeling really down on myself for my rather average GRE scores; feeling like I’d never get into my top-pick schools, wanting to just give up on the whole thing. And then I saw this. There was no passing this one up…I had to get it. Now it is hung in my bathroom as a daily reminder.
What better way to start your day than with a positive message such as this one. So simple, yet so much meaning behind it. Always choose love. I just love the word “choose.” It’s a reminder that although we can’t always choose what happens to us or what others do to us, we can choose how we think about it and how we respond to it. And we should respond in a loving way. That’s how I interpret it anyway, but I’m no Buddha or Gandhi.
These are very recent purchases so if you see something you like here, chances are they still have it. And most Marshalls have the same stock.
