Outfits of the Week



Happy Friday, everyone! Another week is coming to a close, which means another installment of Outfits of the Week… although, if it were up to me, I’d have worn yoga pants and sports tops all week (and I did, to rehearsals) because I am le tired.

This next week is going to be a doozy: Nick will be in Moab for a guys’ trip, I’ll be working and taking care of the pup, and it’s tech week for my show. I’m going to need a lot of mental and physical stamina, and a lot of support from you!

Updates + A Boulder Photo Shoot


Oh, Hey

Hi friends! I’ve been MIA this week due to a busy life. Nick’s mom Barbara was in Denver visiting for the weekend, and then Nick and I got back-to-back stomach bugs (that sounds weird). I got sick; he took care of me. Then he got sick; I took care of him. I think we’d both be dead if we’d gotten it at the same time!

Trying to keep up with blogging every day is hard. This week I’ve focused on feeling healthy and being on top of things at work. So, in lieu of an outfits post today, I’ve got a slew of photos from my head shot session with Be Boulder Photography this past Saturday… and some couples shots, too (+ Nick’s mama)! Take a look and enjoy.

Photos taken before the sickness struck. And no, we’re not engaged. ūüėČ BEWARE: You are going to see a LOT of my face.

Outfits of the Week!


Happy Friday! I’m back with more blurry outfit photos from this fabulous week. I always feel so silly doing these posts because my outfits are usually nothing special… but some of you seem to like these posts¬†and, to be honest, knowing I’m going to be snapping an outfit photo every morning forces me to put a little extra thought into what I’m going to wear.

An At-Home Spa Day

Post-run pampering, how to do an inexpensive spa day at home.jpg

Treat Yo’self

With the chilly, rainy weather in Denver this week, running has made for some much-needed post-workout bubble bath time.

Sometimes I’m convinced that I run just so that I can 1.) earn that extra slice of pizza and 2.) indulge in¬†some serious pampering time. These are a few of my favorite things (on the cheap)!

Things are getting serious with my schedule as we approach the last few weeks of Grease rehearsals before opening. I’m doing my best to take each day in stride, and to not let the future overwhelm me.

It may sound silly or trite, but sometimes focusing on how I¬†can look my best and do¬†my best (with work, running, eating healthy, performing) each day gets me to stop trying to figure it all¬†out. I’m focusing on each day as it comes, with all my energy.
