1. This Cat's Face is Everything-

I happen to really like salads, but even I have days when those leafy greens just ain't gonna cut it! ;) 


2. Julia Nunes Has a New Album Coming Out:

And it's going to be awesome, if this song is any indication! 

3. Illustrator, Rosie Scott-


4. This Soundtrack Has Been on a Loop Lately-

Isn't it weird to know that the same man who composed all these lovely songs also composed the soundtrack to Junior?

Favorite Friday Favorites

1. This Adorable Bat-

Did you know that Goblin Bats exist, because I sure didn't! Well, this is actually a long-eared brown bat, but it really does look like a goblin! This beautiful baby is a new favorite of mine and her story is just as beautiful! <3 div="" nbsp="">


2. New (To Me) Music-

3. Lore Podcast-

My brother recently turned me onto this amazing, relatively new, bi-weekly podcast that takes a scary story or universal human fear & gets at the true facts or history behind that fear. Now, this podcast, while academic in nature, is pretty dark. I made the mistake of binging on 4 episodes in one work day, which resulted in me feeling pretty terrible about humanity. You're going to want to savor these episodes, folks. 


4. Why Not Choose Kindness-

This video is beautiful. Choosing kindness is always the correct response. 

5. This Lovely Ship Dress-

Rebecca over at The Clothes Horse styled this amazing Larmoni ship dress extremely well! This would be perfect over some tights this fall. 

Happy Friday, Friends!

1. Rozzi Crane-

This gal's voice is phenomenal! 

2. I Just Love Theater-



3. Getting That Itch to Trim my Hair-

I'm still working on growing my hair out from the pixie cut I had last summer, but I want a style! Is that too much to ask!? And fall just cries out for bangs, in my opinion. 

4. Just in Time for Halloween-

Like I wouldn't wear it all year round, though! 


5. Pinafore Dresses-

I am now officially on the thrift store hunt for one of these babies! 




And if we get really ambitious, we can try to make one!

Happy Friday, Friends!

Weekend Wrap-Up # 7: 5th Anniversary Edition

This past weekend Rick & I celebrated our 5th anniversary. It was sort of surreal celebrating 5 years when it doesn't really feel like it's been that long! Didn't we just get married? Weren't we just celebrating our 1st anniversary?! 

We kicked off the weekend on Thursday night by going to the Irish pub in our town, Patrick's Pub, for the Irish session. While the music was awesome, there were a ton of rowdy college students and, apparently, we're an old married couple that hates fun. 

On Friday morning we slept in, hit Goodwill & ARC for a little thrifting. I ended up finding a pair of tap shoes for $1.99 for an upcoming class that I'm taking, so I was basically over the moon! After snagging a quick bite at Panera, we hit the road & made our way to the Butterfly Pavilion. I had never been to the Butterfly Pavilion, and let me tell you, it was awesome! We will definitely be going back! After hanging out with the butterflies for a bit, we headed down to the Castle Marne to check in for the night. The Castle Marne Bed & Breakfast, in the Capital Hill area, was built in 1889 by William Lang, who also designed the Molly Brown House. The house has been completely restored to it's original beauty & it is so clear that the owners have a heart for historic architecture. Rick & I booked the Lang room on the second floor & we were so pleased with our choice! The room was so comfortable, and unlike some other historic hotels & houses we've stayed in, the rooms were so quite! And in addition to a delicious breakfast in the morning, the Castle Marne offers tea & coffee at several times during the afternoon & evening & cookies before bed. Talk about luxury! 

After checking in, we got ready for dinner & picked a local sushi restaurant within walking distance. Okinawa Sushi  had great atmosphere & even better food! The service was great & the prices were affordable! After dinner we walked back to our room, grabbed our art supplies & a book & headed to St. Mark's Coffee house for tea, decaf coffee & a delish chocolate chip & peanut butter cookie. It was so great being able to walk to all of our destinations & we felt completely safe & secure the entire time. 

In the morning, after an amazing breakfast & really engaging conversation with the two other couples that were staying at the B&B, we packed up, snapped a picture in front of Castle Marne, & headed on our way! We will definitely be going back to the Castle Marne & would recommend it to anyone that is looking for delightful & comfortable accommodations in the Denver area. 

Our next stop was Meininger's, an amazing art supply store off Broadway. After perusing, picking up a few sketch books & supplies, we headed back to Greeley for a leisurely afternoon of yard work & laundry (do we know how to party or what?) 

 The rest of the weekend was very laid back. We went to church on Sunday morning, hung out with some friends & watched The Goonies, slept in on Monday morning & had a special waffle breakfast. We decided to head down to The Salvation Army after breakfast & I am sure glad that we did! They were having a 50% sale & we were able to pick up a couch for about $45! We then spent the entire afternoon rearranging furniture & doing a little fall cleaning. 

All in all, we had a great anniversary/holiday weekend!
