Good Bye Resolutions

Welp, we’re just over two weeks into the New Year and my [very unofficial] resolutions are completely shot. Which is ironic because I made a legitimately fun resolution – eat a donut every day, aka #DonutADay. Turns out there really is such a thing as “too much of a good thing”. Donuts are awesome…but finding a decent one to eat every day is quite the task and after a while donuts get boring! My new plan? Have fun eating donuts - lots of donuts - for the rest of my life. I think I can manage that! (more…)

And just like that, December is here! It feels weird to be closing in on the end of 2014. It’s been a long year with many life changes so I am more than ready for whatever 2015 has to offer…but at the same time it feels weird to close out such a massive year, to just be done with it. Of course, I’ll still be signing everything with “2014” well into March so I have plenty of time to adjust! (more…)

Beyond the Filters

When the majority of your life is spent online it is EXTREMELY easy to topple over the event horizon and spiral down the black hole of "their life is SO much cooler than mine, why do I suck so much?!". Trust me, I know this. I spend an insane amount of time online and since Twitter is literally my job I cannot just shut off the computer and walk away. I am required to pay attention to everyone else's adventures + accomplishments + awesome lives. It's inspirational, it's motivating and it's full of gorgeous pictures. It is also extremely easy to hate on my own life because it isn't one gigantic snow capped mountain surrounded by farting unicorns and the perfectly composed photo. On the weekends I can turn this off. I can walk away from Instagram, from Twitter, from Feedly...and just get lost in my own little mountain bubble where the mountains majestic and the weather is perfect and everything feels right.

Welcome to October. I kind of love this month. Partly because it's my birthmonth and while I don't actually celebrate all month long you better believe I pull out the "but it's my birthmonth..." whine on occasion! And partly because October's weather means leggings + boots + sweaters + scarves are back to being a staple in my life...and will stay a staple for about 5 months because Colorado is just that awesome!

Wisconsin Wedding Weekend

I spent the last weekend back in Wisconsin. Yup, I voluntarily went to Wisconsin in July where the humidity usually has you sweat while taking a cold shower. I had a good excuse, one of my closest friends was getting married! I still hated her a little for thinking an outdoor wedding in July would be a good idea…but she was right. Turns out Wisconsin kind of loves her – the temperatures were reasonable and the storm clouds worked extra hard to block the sun and hold back their rain! It was a pretty perfect day! It was a beautiful weekend with lots of dresses, flowers, photos and smiles! Of course, I have very little proof of any of this because I failed miserable at taking photos. I was far too busy trying to convince her friends I was normal enough to talk to! (more…)

What I Ate Wednesday [Literally]

We’ve all seen them, every Wednesday Feedly and BlogLovin’ streams are filled with What I Ate Wednesday or WIAW posts featuring all of the food the blogger ate…although not necessarily what they ate on Wednesday. Sometimes it’s their weekend eats. Sometimes it’s food from an event. Sometimes it’s…I honestly don’t know. I’m not entirely certain what the purpose of the WIAW posts are, so I decided to give it a try myself to see what it was all about. (more…)

Playing in Park City [Blend 2014]

On Friday morning I set out on another road trip – the Forester is definitely earning it’s keep! This time Natalie and I were headed west to Park City for Blend, a weekend getaway for a bunch of healthy + active living bloggers. We opted for the scenic route through the Colorado mountains on a mission to find donuts. Because it was National Donut Day, of course, no other reason. I had no idea Idaho Springs had a donut shop…turns out it does, and I will be back! (more…)

Trying New Things [giveaway]

Disclaimer: At the end of this post I’m giving stuff away. The giveaway is paid for by fairlife and I am receiving no monetary compensation for hosting this giveaway or for doling out my opinions. The things I say about fairlife, yoga and milk snobbery are my opinions. While I probably wouldn’t have given this company a shot without this opportunity my “review” is honest.

Everyone has that comfort zone that just feels...safe. It’s dependable, it’s easy, it doesn’t require much thought and it’s always there just waiting for you. It’s a nice place to have. But that comfort zone can also get boring. If you spent too much time hanging out in that comfy little bubble things get mundane and you get restless. (more…)

The Financial Circle of Life

This week I started something new. It currently involves lots of driving, many new faces and many, many @’s and #’s…it’s a new job! This has been in the works for quite some time but I wanted it to be officially official before I told the internet. I’ve survived three days and haven’t cried yet so I think it’s safe to spill the beans! As of Monday I am the Voice of Sierra behind the Sierra Trading Post Twitter. Yup, that is correct, my new job involves all things Twitter plus a few other projects just to keep things interesting. I just might be a little bit excited…and they wrote up a post about my arrival so I even feel kind of famous! And…I got legit headshots done by a photographer who knows his way around a camera and the Adobe Suite! (more…)
