A Sneak Peek at My Rizzo Costume!

Rizzo wig 2

THAT WIG, THO’

(Excuse the crazy face.) This past Saturday the cast of Grease did some promotion at the Parker Days Festival parade!

We dressed up in costume, marched with our banner, danced to Grease show tunes, and handed out flyers to locals so they’ll come see the show!

It was around 90 degrees, and I was in my Pink Lady jacket and wig. Oof! What we do in the entertainment industry! Take a look at just one of my fun costumes…

Life Update: I Found A Place to Live!

Washington Park, Denver, Colorado

A WASH PARK WONDERLAND

You guys. I have been trying to find a place in West Wash Park to call my own, and as of this week, I found the perfect spot!

The Manitou Incline in Colorado Springs

The Steep Hike at Manitou Incline, Colorado Springs.png

ONE HELL OF A HIKE

I recently ventured out to Colorado Springs on a sunny day to tackle the Manitou Incline with my fellow coworkers. I knew it involved a steep set of stairs, but I had no idea what was in store!

The Manitou Incline is considered an extreme trail that involves almost 2,000 feet of elevation in just under 1 mile—otherwise known as an extreme lower-body workout!

MILES & MEALS

Well we’re finally moving on to the recap of Day 2 of our long weekend in Crested Butte, Colorado! The first day was jam-packed with fun but in a relaxed, go-with-the-flow sort of way. It was a great start to the trip!
