June 9th: Go to a Flea Market

Mile High Flea Market is HUGE! I wish I would have gone on a Saturday or Sunday because a lot of the booths seemed closed today… but it was still fun to walk around and browse.


They even have a farmers market but I didn’t really explore that. Leave that for another day.


But it did look like they had a good selection of fruits and veggies. TONS OF MANGOES. It must be mango season.

I bought a couple pieces of cute, and very cheap, jewelry. A hope braclet and a tree pendant.


I will definitely be going back on a weekend day and look forward to seeing a lot more stuff.

If you live in the Denver area , I highly recommend it.

June 6th: Thrift Shop

Well, the mini-vacation is over and I am back to reality. My work week starts up again tomorrow and the rest is the week will be quite a doozie, with lots of work.

When I got back today I thought a relaxing way to spend the day would be to Thrift Shop. It doesn’t take that much effort, doesn’t cost anything (unless you buy things but never expensive), and it is relaxing.

I did in fact buy a couple things. I couldn’t  resist.

A new pot for plants, since I am no obsessed with plants. It was $2.99!


I also got this random book, which will hopefully inspire me to travel to some awesome places. It was $3.99!


A simple check off of the list today, but well deserved I think, after the last few days.

On a side note, I finally finished The Red Tent, the third book checked off my list from earlier this year. I highly recommend it to any and every woman. I started Big Little Lies, which already is a complete 180, but I think I will enjoy it in a very different way.

I also started my 4th (of 8) scarves for my nieces and nephews:


Hopefully, I can finish that one quickly because if I am going to have all of them done by Christmas, that is coming up quick!

May 9th: Buy Local Honey

Well, spring is here and so are my allergies! I never really had allergies until I moved to Colorado. Since I have moved here I have had to take some form of medicine to feel like a normal human being.

I have always heard that consuming local honey can help relieve allergy woes, so there was no better week than this week to buy some!

I went to Vitamin Cottage to get some and was not disappointed. I found a honey from Greeley, Colorado from Rice Family Honey

They have been open since 1924. After listening to the audio book from my last thing on my list, I have really enjoyed looking more into the history of Colorado and historic things. So this seemed like a perfect honey to buy.


The fun thing is, the visit to Vitamin Cottage and the purchase of honey is putting into motion other tasks on the list! Stay tuned for those… 🐝.

April 22nd: Buy a New Outfit including Shoes and Accessories 

I am in no way a fashionista. And I don’t buy expensive things. But every once in a while you need some fresh new things to wear. So I bought new top, jeans, shoes, a bra, socks, earrings and even a new scent to wear. It will feel good to go into work one day soon feeling fresh and new.
