I am loving these posts! It is so much fun to show you little tidbits into my life! You get to see more about me and what I love! I loved taking this picture! It happened to be a day when TJ and I had off and we went on a mountain biking ride with some friends! It was wonderful! So, before I go take a shower to wash the mud and sweat from that ride lol, here is my favorite place to be:
Right next to my husband outside is my favorite place to be!
Today was a bit busy so the post is earlier than last night but still rather late. Lol!
On a side note, I used my sewing machine all day! I made two headbands, one of which you will see in the picture below! And a foot/ lower back warmer (aka a pouch full of rice that you put in the microwave.) I had so much fun! Still learning about my sewing machine and how different things work on it, but progress is being made!
Here is what I wore today:
That is a headband I made today! Yay!
For dinner I made a Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Pasta dish. Oh man, super delicious!
You can check out the recipe here! So yummy!
Are you following along with the March photo Challenge?!
Alright! It is the first day of the first month of my 30 Day challenges! Woohoo! Sorry this post is so late, it is still March 1st my time but I worked late tonight. But I am kind of glad that I did, because I wore a headband to work and it made for an awesome picture. lol
So, without further adieu here is my best axel rose impression 😛
Headband and sunglasses from work. Gotta have some fun with these pictures!
P.S. It is my two year anniversary! I have been blogging for two years! How crazy!!! Thanks for sticking with me!
I am always looking for ways to blog more consistently. Especially during the winter time when I don’t feel like I am doing as much in life. Spring, Summer and Fall always bring more outings and get togethers, where as winter means cold, snow, and ice here in the lovely Denver area. With so many transplants who have not figured out how to drive in the snow, there is no desire to be out on the roads unless absolutely necessary. Thankfully the snow has been half way decent this year so it has been good to stay active in these cold cold months. But this girl is ready for the warmth and sunshine to get out and play in the mountains!
In the meantime, and throughout the rest of the year I have a couple ideas to keep this blog hopping! lol. For the past couple years in April I have taken part in the April A-to-Z Challenge. While that is a fun challenge to partake in, I wanted something different this year. I wanted something soon too! Did not really come up with anything but I had several things I wanted to try in my To-Do list on pinterest. So, I thought I would tackle them throughout the year. So, each month will bring a new 30 Day Challenge! Why not right?! I am finishing out February as is. I am currently working my way through 10 Ways to Pray for Your Husband. ( Sorry, my mouse pad on my mac is glitchy and I was having trouble highlighting the whole thing.) But once March starts, I am diving head first into the categories below. It is part of my new year’s resolutions to get things off of my to-do list so that is killing two birds with one stone.
Should be fun! If you want to take part in any of them alongside me, let me know! I would love to read along with you!

So, I realize the last two months are a little ridiculous but I love those months and I couldn’t help myself lol. Maybe they will be adjusted but for right now I’m feeling ambitious!
Just finished reading The $100 Startup by Chris Guillebeau. I really need to stop reading all of these start up books. They say alot of the same stuffs. If I am really going to start something, I should just do it and stop reading and procrastinating. Right? Right. Anyway, Chris is super engaging and it was a great read!
Likes: It was a quick read. (When I found time to actually read it.) It was a very engaging read. He had some great tips and advice. He shared stories from real people. Real failures and successes. It was encouraging without being too peppy or anything. Haha. It was very practical. Loved it.
Dislikes: It was a lot of what I had read before. If you are just now going into reading about starting your own business, then start with this one. If not, he says a lot of the same things I have been reading already.
Overall, it was a really great read. He was super practical and super knowledgeable. Start at this book before you read others. There you go!
Sorry, I’m feeling short and to the point right now. My mind is in a billion different places.
July of 2013 is coming to an end. That means this challenge is coming to an end and I have failed miserably. Life just sometimes gets the best of you. I will hopefully have one more book to add before the end of the challenge but obviously not finishing the whole thing. I will read all of the books and keep you updated on when this challenge is actually complete. I still have yet to even finish the list. How terrible am I at keep this challenge?!
I have some short challenges on my to do list on pinterest and so I think I will try a few short ones and then maybe try a 52 weeks challenge again. If I can’t finish something the first time, I tend to be restless until I actually do finish it so it will happen at some point. But anyway, I got a new camera and so it is only fitting that for the month of August, I am going to do a picture challenge that I found on pinterest. Stay tuned for more challenge awesomeness!
