My Try at Pie

Well, well, well… I’m feelin’ a lil’ sassy today. A bit triumphant I guess after successfully (with much help) making a peach and cherry pie! Not only did I look up ten or so recipes on Pinterest, get advice from bakers and old ladies all week, but my friend Nicole stopped by yesterday morning to help me prep, design, bake and clean up! She’s a sweetheart, bless her. It was a lot of fun even though the cleanup was horrendous! She brought over a little (whole bottle) champagne to get us motivated.

Beginners Guide to Feng Shui

Friends, I can’t wait to share with you on how I have made my house into a home! It’s a little thing called Feng Shui, which stands for wind-water. It is a ancient Chinese principle creating a balanced and harmonious living space. This is decided by the layout and direction of your home and rooms. It also follows the elements: earth, water, fire, metal, and wood. By following these simple rules from room to room, you too can live in a positive and happy home!

60-something’s The NEW 20-something!

Happy days, oh happy days. That’s how I’m trying to see it anyways. I think it’s safe to say that I am not the only human who struggles with finding happiness, and I’m a happy friggin’ person. I have troubles for sure and today I wanted to share with you all how I cope.

1.) Yesterday, I was at work and dreading it. I literally went into the restroom, splashed cold water onto my face and smiled in the mirror for a solid minute and forty-five seconds. Variations of raising my eyebrows, winking, exposing my neck slightly and showing myself strong and crazy smiles. To my surprise, it worked! That non-crazy smile stuck right to my face as I walked into my workday. If you are  not comfortable being a maniac in the workplace feel free to place a pencil along your smile and bite. This will do the same thing, I believe they call this muscle memory. I feel that when others around you see a smile it redirects their emotions and reflects yours. A good day for everybody!  Continue reading “60-something’s The NEW 20-something!”

Bubble Bride

Poppin’ bottles can basically sum up my weekend. I can’t even estimate how many bottles of champagne and red wine we went through. This Saturday was my bridal shower! Yee! Hosted by my wonderful aunties. My beautiful maid of honor and bridesmaid were there too, clinking mimosas by my side. I was surrounded by a dozen of my lovely friends and supportive family members. I can’t express how much love was flowing through my heart this weekend.

My uncles and cousins stopped by after the festivities to be social with all us gals and to be fed the leftover hors d’oeuvres.

I was so nervous randomly the day of the shower. My hands were so shaky my liquid eyeliner went on all scribbley. For some reason I felt like I wasn’t worthy of this shower and that I wasn’t fancy enough for something so extravagant. Now, I believe I was simply scared of being in the spotlight. Being the center of attention is hard for me, I tend to just be and nothing more. I guess the wedding will give me a run for my money.

Spark of Joy

Howdy ya’ll! This weekend I attended FIBArk. I have honestly been waiting for so so long to experience this white water festival. I’ve gone so far as to quit my second job to be able to have a fun filled summer. It began on Wednesday night and to say the least I’m crazy exhausted and all tapped out. Eddyline Brewery sponsored the event. I enjoyed their Grapefruit Yanker IPA most of the time and Vino Salida’s sangria’s, except on Saturday morning when I grabbed delicious sparkling Riesling mimosas.

The Red Rocks

Hey everyone, happy Sunday! I started this weekend off with a bang! Put on my new yellow romper and blindingly white tennies and drove three hours to The Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, CO. Wow, was it beautiful. Unfortunately, I was not allowed to bring in my camera, although there are a couple iPhone images on Facebook if you care to take a gander. I did however bring in my Polaroid camera and I decided to give all of the dancing friends around me a picture to remember their time there. It was a hit to say the least.

Here goes something..

_MG_3897Friends! I’m excited to announce that Chas and I have started a blog! It took me a while to get the guts to actually pull the trigger on this. I would be at the gym panting on the stair-climber while trying to come up with a catchy blog title (how did I do?). I’d also be googling “how to start a blog.” Then I was even more nervous to bring the idea to Chas and see how he felt about it. Of course he was super supportive and said if we do this we’re doing it right! So here’s to the start of a whole new hobby and a place to show off our current hobbies!
