Puppy Love

This is probably the weirdest blog post I will ever write but it’s a true love story, so I will go ahead and share.  A little bit of back story on my childhood with pets. When my mom married my stepdad, I was in 2nd grade and he already had a cat. The cat’s name…

Staycation: The Golden Hotel

Golden, Colorado… a treasure trove when it comes to fun day trips. There is so much to do here and it is just minutes outside of the city. It is often overlooked as it is on the way to more sought-after places, but I encourage you to take a hard right as you approach the…

Encouragement for the Jobless

With the Coronvirus making daily changes to our lives, every bit of comfort seems to be going right out the window. This is especially true if you were one of many people who lost their job in the last couple of weeks. Though I definitely don’t know fully how it feels to have that uncertainty…

Staycation: Hotel Boulderado

There is nothing like getting away for a weekend. I often talk about wandering out into the hills (mountains) of Colorado for some respite. Alas, that is not the only place worth venturing. One of my favorite places to get some me-time is in the lovely little city of Boulder, CO. There is SO much…

Staycation: The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa

As a Colorado resident, what can be better than a staycation in the Colorado Rockies? We have a wonderful city, busting with events and things to do. Denver is the place people thrive. However, when the weekend comes, it is nice to take a short drive into the hills and get away from it all…

Upcoming End of Summer Events

While I realize August is almost coming to an end, I didn’t want it to slip by without sharing some fun events with you. In all honesty, I should have been a good blogger and posted this sooner to cover all of the fun summer events that I attended/will be attending. Alas, I procrastinated. But…

Get Out Colorado!

If there is one thing that gets me going, it is finding a new adventure in Colorado. This state is full of wonderful state parks and places to day trip, in order to get outside. For those that love to adventure in the city, there are plenty of awesome venues and experiences to take advantage…

Staycation: DoubleTree by Hilton Vail

One of the best parts about living in Colorado is the ease of booking getaways. The mountains are just right up the road and when it is time to let loose, all you have to do is book a hotel in the hills and head up on a Friday after work. There are many destinations…

The Apple of My Rib Eye

Nestled in the heart of Boulder, right off Pearl St. mall, there is a little cubby that is home to one of the most elegant and intriguing restaurants I have been to, Steakhouse No. 316. It’s dimly lit rooms and borderline gothic, yet glamorous, decor leaves you at ease and ready for relaxation. To aid…

Best Colorado Margaritas

When it comes to cocktails, the margarita is at the top for me. There is nothing more refreshing on a hot summer day (or a cold winters night, let’s get real), than tequila salt and lime juice. Luckily, we have many establishments that know how to salt their rim and pour their booze just right….
