December 2 {2017}

Happy Saturday! We did a lot of Christmas decorating and got our tree. We also went to Home Depot and I had to make an emergency run to Target for Christmas lights because for some reason we didn’t have enough strings for the tree.



Hello December {Day 1}

Hello December Daily! It’s that time of year again and December Daily has begun. I am going to do a digital version again this year. I really wanted to do a physical book this year but decided that I would probably actually do it if I stuck with the digital. Maybe just maybe there will be a few Vlogs. Here’s day 1.

December 1st was a Friday so most of the day was just a normal work day. Donny went out for happy hour with some co-workers at Upslope and then we went out to dinner at Sherpa’s. It had been a while since we had had Napalese/Indian food and Sherpa’s is definitely one of our favorites.

I also finished my 1st week of my 4 week wardrobe challenge where I am wearing a different outfit every day for the next 4 weeks (weekend excluded). Like most of us I tend to wear the same few items from my wardrobe and there’s nothing wrong with that but I want to challenge myself to wear more of what I own. We have been having some unusually warm weather for the end of November beginning of December which worked well for me because I am in need of more leggins so I can wear my skirts in the winter.

Day 1: Lularoe Pineapple Lucy, Gray thrifted 3/4 sleeve, Gold sandals from Target

Day 2: Lularoe Madison, Lularoe Randy, TOMs boots

Day 3: T-shirt dress from Target, Lularoe Leggins, Born boots

Day 4: White pants, Chambray T-shirt, Sweater all from Target, TOMs boots

Day 5: School Spirit Day! Lularoe Azure, school shirt, Duster sweater from Wal-Mart, Steve Madden Flats


We got a bamboo plant for our deck. We needed to get some more plants for the deck….it was looking quiet boring and needed something. Donny suggested we get a bamboo plant and the little nursery near our house just happen to have one. We have had it about a week and there is already new growth.

This is when we first got it

One week later

4th of July

We went to Breckenridge for the Firecracker 50 mountain bike race. This is Donny’s 4th year racing and we had a great time. While Donny was racing Anna and I walked around downtown a bit, got lunch and sat in the sun waiting for Donny to finish. We had a great time! After we got home Donny and I had Smash Burger for dinner (we didn’t plan ahead with our dinner plans) and watched Fireworks out our bedroom window.


Hello July!

Hello blog! It’s been a while. The end of the school year was a bit crazy and this first part of summer has gone by so fast. We have been working on projects around the house and I have been enjoying my first summer of not teaching summer school. Here’s a look at what I have been doing this past month or so. And don’t worry July is jammed pack with fun.
