Doing some blogging today after (what feels like) a REALLY long time, and I’m realizing quickly that it’s EXACTLY what I’ve needed. Thank you for being part of this community and following along with my story.
It’s April, y’all… well, it’s practically MAY, which of course reminds me of my VERY FAVORITE MEME (It’s yours too, you know it.)
CURRENT COLORADO SPOT (#1)
Boulder. I’ve lived outside of Boulder for the past 9 years… but starting tomorrow, I’ll be WORKING there! An unbelievably beautiful spot, I’m super pumped to learn more about the town and to explore a bit!
Of note, this isn’t exactly where I’ll be working… but a nice backdrop. 🙂
CURRENT COLORADO SPOT (#2)
I was just going to list one… but naturally, I have two that I want to share. The second would be my favorite lake in the world right now. Every time I get out there, it seems more beautiful than the last. And, the trees and flowers are starting to bud. Swoon!
CURRENT SNACK OBSESSION
I don’t know how I’ve never tried these before last night. Now that I’ve tried them, they’re pretty much all I want… that good. From a Weight Watchers standpoint, they’re 4 SP for 23 crackers!
I need to plan a cheese board with these crackers on it soon. Friends, you heard it here.
CURRENT MUSIC SITUATION
I’m loving this remake of an old Fleetwood Mac classic… and with how things have been going in my world, it was the perfect anthem this month when resigning my job and moving on to a new adventure. This one combined with a little Fight Song, a little Stronger, and a little Brave. I conquered things this month!
CURRENT POSH ADDICTION
In the two weeks of fun-employment I’ve had over here between jobs, I’ve been cleaning out closets and selling all of my clothes that I’m not wearing/don’t fit/don’t want on Poshmark! Here’s a link to my “closet” if you want to take a peek… lots of great stuff out there!
Either way, if you haven’t tried Poshmark, I *highly* recommend it. Download the app, and use promo code KELLY2903 to save $5 on your first purchase!
CURRENT FAVORITE INSTAGRAM FOLLOW
Do you guys follow the ladies of @TheHomeEdit on Instagram? I’m mildly obsessed with their feed (and mostly their stories.) They’re professional organizers to the stars, working on a reality TV show that’s coming out soon, and HILARIOUS on Instastories.
Just know, I’m pretty sure that Clea is my spirit animal. She’s referencing “red cart cardio” above… and she’s talking about TARGET. Amazing.
CURRENT FOOD CREATION
I made my first avocado rose this month. So there’s that…
CURRENT SMART GIRL GLASSES
Attempting to spend what was left of my benefits before I left my previous company, I decided it was time to upgrade my glasses after about 5 years. Snagged these Coach cuties at Target Optical… and I suddenly feel hip again (and so smart.) They’re two-toned… like my hair.
You guys, I bought a new CAR this month! Said goodbye to my ELEVEN year old, 180K mile vehicle, making way for a new one! And because this last car was INCREDIBLE for me, I did the right thing and just bought the same exact car…. but newer and cleaner. YAY!
When I was writing this post, I still hadn’t picked up the new car (it had to be shipped), so no pics for now.
I took a knife skills class this month! My friend Melanie and I have talked about taking one forever. So when her birthday rolled around, I surprised her with a day at Sur La Table!
Now I want a new knife… I’m holding out for a sale at Sur La Table, but soon! Learned so much that day!
CURRENT COLORADO SPOT (#3)
I mean, I couldn’t leave this sunset off, right? Majestic View Park… looking all majestic again!
I always pull this bad boy out when I take a risk, take a chance, make a change… (name that song.) True story: It was on a desk calendar I had in my cube years ago… and I’ve always loved it in moments like that.
