I had a very different idea of what this meant when I put this on the list for the year. I anticipated that it would mean fine art painting. But after buying a house that is simply not the case.
I spent today painting my kitchen. I am overjoyed with how the house is coming along.
Here are photos of my kitchen on move in day:
Now I have taken down some of the cabinets, painted the walls and painted the cabinets. Take a look:
The next exciting step is building these cool shelves to put up in place of the cabinets:
And, I have already picked out a color for the bathroom.
Owning a house is so fun!
What a fun thing to do! Hosting a BBQ is quite the endeavor but such a fun time.
Owning my own house has been such an adventure and has enabled me to do so many things.
I decided to have a house party this weekend. My friend, Jared, bought me a grill as a housewarming gift, so no better time than to host a BBQ.
So many great friends turned out and we had a fabulous time. I think there will be many more of these to come at this house.
We had cornhole, a keg, some tired pups and a great group of friends!
Next time I will step it up and make some great BBQ!
I recently met a guy a work who is a a comedian and currently working on spreading the comedy scene around Denver. He wanted to know if we could put on a show in the venue… and we’ll, what a great idea!
We are doing it once a month, but today I had the great pleasure of hanging out for the comedians.
It was awesome. They were hilarious.
I think it is going to be a great experience once a month and hopefully we can get more people to attend!
This is probably the coolest rooftop patio in Denver to hang out on. The Tavern Rooftop Patio at Coors Field is so fun!

I went to a service industry tailgate party with some former coworkers from a different place than I work at now:
It was a really fun time! And the view from the rooftop is great:
It is so funny how things end up differently than you might expect.
When I made this list there were many things on it that I expected to be one way and they end up completely different.
This thing for example, I expected to be a fun little task: skipping rope one afternoon. However, I guess that was a childish expectation. I reminisce about skipping rope as a kid and think about how fun and easy it was.
Today though, phew. We had to jump rope in crossfit class and it was not fun or easy! Perhaps because I am servely out of shape or maybe just because it wasn’t just a little skipping around, but either way… I won’t be doing that again anytime soon.
This year is full of so much adventure, creating, eating and relaxation. Some days I need to remind myself to make these things happen.
Today was simple. Make a little door wreath.
I started with a wood stick wreath and wrapped some green leaves around it.
Then I took some flowers. I picked these ones because I feel like it can kind of encompass all the seasons.
I glued them on using a hot glue gun.
And that was that. Hopefully it stays together.
