Thankfully Thrifted Thursday-Martini Glasses

My roommate and I have started a tradition, Martini Monday!

On our first night we didn’t actually have martini glasses and it really just wasn’t all that charming.

So what do two single girls do who have no martini glasses? They go thrifting!

We decided we didn’t want matching ones, there isn’t really anything in our apartment that matches and we like it that way.

These are the glasses that we found.

Hers

It’s the Eiffel Tower! It’s just tacky enough and we love it!

Mine

It has just a touch of blue, which I love!

So there you have it, we found ourselves some extra classy martini glasses! Love!

Now for what I’m thankful for this week 🙂

I am thankful for simple, calm moments.

I am thankful for friends who have a heart to serve.

I am thankful for a wonderful house that I love to come home to.

I am thankful for a chance to express my creativity.

I am thankful for the ridiculousness of life (like my roommate and I doing the same scared dance when we realized the bat still lives on our deck).

Love,

Keely

Weekly wrap up

Hi friends!

To be honest, this week was not quite as lovely as others have been.  There has been a lot happening and I haven’t really felt “pretty” all week, I’ve just been off!

So I got in a car accident on Friday (I really don’t recommend it!)  So I’ve been car shopping all week long which is just exhausting really.  There have been tears, and laughter and a 14 hour work day (with lots of jokes and slap happy laughing).

Overall, the laughter is more powerful than the tears and joy prevails (as long as you let it).

Thrifty, thrifty, thrifty!  I was so excited about this dress!  I bought it at my local thrift store and knew I had the perfect accessories for it at home!  I had a party to go to Friday night and I wanted to look awesome! (Dress from Savers, Belt from Goodwill, Leggings from Kohls, Boots from Savers…I love thrifting!) Part of the Working Closet’s 30 days of getting dressed challenge.

Last Friday the Colorado governor came to my office to sign the Film Incentive Bill which will hopefully creative more jobs in television and film in Colorado. *fingers crossed*  It was so cool to see history happening in my own backyard.

Speaking of that party, it was at a Mexican restaurant, doesn’t this just make you hungry?  SO yummy!

Before going out, however, I hung out with the coolest 11 year old ever (the girl I mentor) she and I played Uno while drinking coffee and smoothies.

At my birthday party (that was shared with two other birthdays) we played croquet!  I wanted to play badminton or volleyball but I couldn’t find a net, croquet ended up being awesome anyway 🙂

Two occasions meant two outfits.  The one on the left for my outdoor party, the one of the right for a night a of swing dancing!

Oh fun!  I love swing dancing!  It’s my favorite thing, we had such a great time!

A casual outfit for a casual day of training for a week at Royal Family Kids Camp.

My friend took me out for frozen yogurt (a week after my birthday).  The tables were white board tables and I had to write something, so since it was technically a birthday treat I figured I would just go with it. 🙂

Another getting dressed photo, just another day.

I had to run an errand for my sister and it sent to one of the most gorgeous parts of Denver.  I love all the big, old houses, they are so pretty!

My 14 hour work day was fun!  I got to do some food staging.  Doesn’t this watermelon look delicious?

Before the day on set we had a meeting at the Denver Film Center.  I love my job!  It’s so fun to have staff meetings in a movie theater!  (Free popcorn is pretty great too :))

So there you have it.  As I’ve said the best part about Instagram is allowing me to see the beauty if the world around me, even when my week isn’t so amazing, and looking through everything it reminds me that my life is amazing even when I forget!

Love,

Keely
