Hi friends! With the long weekend, this week pretty much flew by for me (no problem there). However, a shorter work week inevitably translates into squeezing more work into less time, so I’m pretty wiped out despite having Monday off. Tonight C and I are seeing Turandot (thanks for the tickets, mom!), and then our plans pretty much consist of cleaning the car – whoop whoop – and catching up on House of Cards. Big […]

If Friday is my favorite day, then happy hour is BY FAR my favorite time of day! Last week Laura, Aisha and I decided to meet at Jax Fish House for after-work drinks, seafood, and some much-needed girl talk. Laura started with the Graprfruit Ginger Sling, which I think is my favorite drink on their HH menu. It’s fresh, slightly spicy, and not too sweet – the perfect drink for sipping outside on a warm afternoon. […]

Hi friends!Last week marked Grad Week at CSU, and a whole bunch of our friends graduated! I love Fort Collins, but living in a college town does have its downsides, as every couple of years we have to say goodbye to dear friends leaving school. The only saving grace of this sad fact is that we get to attend a myriad of parties celebrating our accomplished pals, and last weekend was full of them! Bright […]

Sunday is without a doubt the most depressing day of the week. I usually have two ways of dealing with it:  a) Mope around the house like a lump, complain about the upcoming week, maybe pausing here and there for a long nap or the occasional cookie…. OR b) Make it special by either getting outside, treating myself to a pamper day, or going for a really cozy, delicious dinner.  Can you guess what we […]

{frozen berries + white wine on a hot afternoon} How is it already Thursday? This week has been flying by, in the best of ways. Yesterday we said goodbye to Chase, C’s brother, who stayed with us last week as he is already on summer break and wanted to come meet his new nephew. During his visit, he introduced me to House of Cards, and let’s just say, it is ON. Weekend marathon beginning in 3-2-1! […]

Umm, how utterly GORGEOUS is this bedroom decor? The combination of the Mexican serape, the bright pillows, and the fluffy sheepskin just make me want to crawl under the covers with a good book. We are starting to think about our next place of residence (yay renting!), and my head is buzzing with decor ideas. I saw this bedroom styling via Lulu and Georgia (although the blanket in the photo is sold out! Sob!). I love, […]
