Weekly Wrap Up

Ah Friday, you have finally made it.

Isn’t strange how your first week back from vacation is either insanely fast or incredibly slow.  This week has been the latter for me. Monday felt like Wednesday, and that’s never a good sign.

Sorry I missed last week, but as mentioned I was away working at a camp, there wasn’t a lot of Instagraming happening.

However, this week I’m taking you all the way back to two weekends ago, to get all caught up!

My first ever Smash pages!  I love Smashing so much (have you picked up a Smashbook yet?)

I thought these cupcakes looked so pretty in the morning sunshine, Strawberry Lime, not my best work but reasonably good.

Cinnamon pancakes!  I shared the recipe here.

My roommate and I went out to a tea shoppe that makes food that is all made with tea.  I got pulled pork sliders, yummy!

I tried to “competition” at a Food Truck party, not to have an ego or anything, but I win.

Camp cupcakes!  Malted Chocolate, Spicy Mango, and Orange.  They were all gone on Friday afternoon 🙂

After I got back donuts sounded amazing.  So that’s what the roomie and I did, they were delicious!

We had an insane downpour here in Denver on Saturday.  I just waited it out in my car while waiting for my friend to show.  We got new ear piercings :))

Banana nut bundt anyone?

It’s pretty much a miracle that my full sized cake came out, but it did, and it was gorgeous!

This picture is not as exciting as it looks.  Hooray Casa Bonita!

A lovely day in the park listening to some free music.  I love trumpet players (there was one that was potentially attractive).

My lovely hair pins from Petunia Blooms.  I love them!  (You can also see the new piercing :))

And last but not least, I died a piece of my hair blue.  Finished pictures when I have a finished hair do!

Have a lovely weekend!




Weekly Wrap Up

Wow! What a week! There has been so much happening.

I got the keys to my first EVER apartment and I bought a car (guess that makes me an adult?)

It’s pretty insane. I had the week off of wok so there were lots of work out pants and tank tops. There was a lot of eating, lounging, packing and MOVING!

It was insane!


I love that food trucks are blowing up in Denver! I got this delicious pizza at a food truck party, it was so delicious! And there was so much else going on, so fun!


Living in Colorado, there is so much great beer! I decided that this summer I’m going to embrace it, so me and a friend headed down to the Breckenridge Brewery and enjoyed a few drinks.


I wasn’t always lazy, I did get dressed once or twice.


My friend is a bartender at Chili’s, he makes me yummy drinks.  I went and hung out there for a while to read my book (I still have another 350ish pages to pound through by Thursday…sigh).


Here’s the EMPTY apartment!  I just went over and hung out for a bit while it was empty, because it’s mine and I could.  It was pretty fun 🙂

Here’s my car!  A 1999 Subaru, so excited about it!



I have some idea of what the organization of my kitchen will be, so I put my dishes away.  This is my favorite cabinet 🙂


Brunch!  I love chocolate chip pancakes and I love good time with friends.


So if you ever come to Denver, it’s a requirement to go to Casa Bonita, and it’s not because of the food (beware of the food).  The experience is ridiculous!  Especially if you go with my friend Dan, he makes this experience so amazing (margaritas are also helpful :))


Look, I got dressed again!


Thrift find!  I kind of love this thing.  I want to put glasses and bottles on the bottom and then have the top be a “mail station” since it’s right by the front door.  We’ll see how it works.


I bought this jar at IKEA and am using it to store my many cupcake liners (idea from Pinterest).


I have a friend who is opening a small, consignment boutique and I went over to help her out.  I got to use a price gun, it was great!


Does your city have something like this?  It’s called Canvas and Cocktails and you go to this place and they teach you how to paint, and you get to drink wine!  We were doing a take on a “Denver Starry Night.”  Great fun.

So there we have it.  My week has been filled with fun, stress, craziness and a potential lack of hygiene (TMI?  Sorry about that, my bathroom is a little unorganized, I fully intend on shower tonight!).
