A few things lately.

So... I should really be working on my senior thesis right now, but there are a few things on my mind that are very distracting.

Lately I have been absolutely obsessed with Lil Bub, the cutest cat there ever was. Check out her website if you'd like to waste a good half an hour swooning over her. I do almost daily... oops.

Speaking of swooning, I have been over the Lulu Dress from Nasty Gal.... and dreaming of wearing it to the Colorado Ballet Nutcracker.

Can't wait for the Holidays. Meg is coming home from Paris! I have started knitting holiday gifts, and I just want this beautiful Colorado weather to cool it for a bit. I want to wear scarves and mittens already!

This weekend we had brunch at Steubens here in Denver, which is one of my favorite places. We tried the Bacon Bloody Mary... so delicious.

Anyway... I have stalled for long enough. Off to be studious.

Until Next time!

October has been nice.

Last Tuesday I went up to Boulder and enjoyed some thrifting and Mexican food with the adorable Adrienne. 

This weekend was full of Halloween festivities. On Saturday night Jon and I had a Halloween party, which was so much fun. We had lots of really great friends dressed in lots of really great costumes! I have also eaten more candy than I probably ever should, but that's ok. :)

Sunday night we went to a pumpkin carving party, also so much fun!

I am extremely excited for November. There are a lot of good things coming up. We are moving into a new apartment down town, right off of the 16th St. Mall, which will be so great. Also, Thanksgiving is coming up, and that is always great, I love family time. 

Most of all though, the day after Halloween is the day that I always, always start listening to Christmas music. I know it's a little early, but I am a Christmas fanatic. CAN'T WAIT!

Weekends are Special

Weekends are for making french toast with bacon and sunflowers and sleeping in.

Michigan Dreams.

A couple of months ago we took a road trip across Michigan. We traveled from Detroit to somewhere around Watervliet for a friends wedding.
Along the way, I had the pleasure of visiting both the University of Michigan and Michigan State University where I got the true college experience I have missed out on in my time as an undergrad in Denver. We were at Michigan State the week before welcome week, and it was still more college than I had ever been exposed to. We went to a house party and a Co-op, which is just completely new to me.
It was a very interesting experience!
Don't get me wrong, I have had some crazy times here in Denver, but going to school in a down town urban environment is worlds away from a full blown college town in the midwest...
We also went sailing in Lake Saint Clair and swimming in Lake Michigan, which was my favorite part of the whole trip.

It's that orange, and yellow, and red time of the year again...

And I couldn't be more excited. We are about two weeks into October and Denver is so irresistibly autumnal. One of my favorite places lately has been City park. I recently ventured there with the little girl I nanny, and we had a close encounter of the bird kind. Those geese and seagulls got a little too close for comfort...

I have been looking through some old pictures from this time last year and I realized that I had four, FOUR different Halloween costumes: White Swan, Lumberjack, Lois Lane, and Minnie mouse... geez.

This year will only be better! We are having a Halloween party on the 27th, which will be really great. I am so exited to bake autumn treats and decorate spookily... Woo!
