as overrated as it is its still nice to text your friends and family and let them know how much they are loved.


Its also Ash Wednesday which makes it an even better day to do act act of kindness for someone you love.


making room for fun

you can’t take life too seriously.  You always see those sayings everywehere “I dont want to adult today”  or “I wish I was a kid again”

Over the weekend along with hiking and snowboarding in Vail, we also made time for a snowball fight and made sure to warm up with hot chocolate afterwards.

We also went to the Ice Castles and were right behind all the kids sliding down the ice slides! Which made us laugh even more since when you came down all the moms had their phones out to take pictures of the kids coming down and then a six foot tall guy with a beard comes down the slide! lol

Last night we even brought out our Nintendo DS’s and played Tetris and MarioKart!

You can abosolutely be an adult and still have fun and Casey and I have been doing just that. I am so grateful!


Blessed is my word for 2018 and each morning I think of it and find ways I am blessed in my life. It is crazy when you actually think about how much you have to be grateful for.

Its a great way to start each day.



for my Mom!! She is amazing. When we talk on the phone and I’m with my friends she is usually on speaker and they always comment how we sound exactly the same! I’ve even face timed her on game days and we will have the same BILLS shirt on.

It is great to just always have that person there to encourage you, laugh with you/or at you, and share amazing moments together. (even though we cant be together all the time in person, not a day goes by where I do not talk to her on the phone) Shes the best.


State Parks

I am very greatful for State Parks, I went to Barr Lake State Park for the first time, and it was an amazing experience. I met a couple State Park Volunteers and they were so nice! I sat with them and watched Bald Eagles for about an hour.

They also had a photo scavenger hunt and I won a prize and was entered into a bigger drawing in December.


I am so thankful for all the beauty Colorado holds and and interested in becoming a volunteer! =)


Buffalo Police Department

There was an active shooter in a store in Buffalo last night and I am so grateful that the police were there in 4 minutes and no one was hurt or even worse killed.

It was a little too close to home for comfort. My mom lives very close.

I am so grateful for the officers and their quick response, and extremely grateful that no one was hurt!


Christmas Decorations

I know its not even Thanksgiving yet, but I  do love seeing everyones Christmas Decorations and getting our house decorated for the Holidays. It is magical and fills a void since I am not around family during the holidays.
