Favorite Friday Favorites #164

1. Consider This-

I recently returned to college classes after a twelve year hiatus & one of the hardest things for me to come to terms with is that I can't do all the things I was doing before now that I'm taking 16 credit hours.

And that's okay.

I have this propensity to want to do all the things while running myself ragged in the process & that's just not going to work anymore. Seeing this little reminder this morning calmed my worries.

I hope it does the same for you.


2. Rick's First Friday Show-

If you live in the Northern Colorado area, we'd love to see you tonight at John Galt Coffee Company! Rick has been working his little butt off for this show & all the hard work has definitely paid off! Can you tell I'm a proud wife-bird? If you can't make it tonight but would still love to see the art, the show will be up all this month! Check it out! 

3. New Music (Videos)-

4. Train by Danny Cohen- 

Do yourself a favor & read this beautiful, heartbreaking & inspiring novel. You won't be disappointed.

But don't just take my word for it. Check out this great resource where you can read the first 50 pages of this important & timely novel. 

5. August's Playlist-

-I recently stumbled upon Zoetrope: All-Story while browsing around my local newsstand & I was really impressed with the issue I flipped through. Zoetrope is a literary magazine founded by Francis Ford Coppola in 1997. It primarily explores the intersection of story, art, fiction & film. I really look forward to picking up my very own copy soon!  
-Oh, James Cameron
-This is important & absolutely worth the 56 minutes you'll spend watching it. If you live in Northern Colorado & know nothing or very little about the Chicano civil rights movement, watch this now. 
-I used to do FatMumSlim's monthly photo challenges every month. I might have to give this one a go. 
-Helping after Hurricane Harvey.

2. This Hedgehog Tea Infuser-


3. These Old Navy Jeans-

Now, listen. I'm not normally a jegging type of girl, but I was at Old Navy this past week trying on some jeans (since I really struggle with finding good-fitting jeans at the thrift store) & I grabbed these on a whim. Well, they fit like a damn glove, kids! The only bummer is that the front pockets are fake & sewed shut. Why, Old Navy? WHY? Regardless, these bad boys are definitely on my list to pick up at least one pair for fall! 


4. This Vintage Star Map-


5. The House of Shadows-

If you're in the Greeley/Ft. Collins area, come on down to the Atlas theater on Saturday night at 7 for the third installment of the House of Shadows "Project 1950"! You won't be disappointed! Get all the pertinent deets here or take a look at this fabulous poster! I've never looked better, kids! 

Poster design by the endlessly talented Jordan Nicholson! Seriously. We're not worthy.

Thrift Wishlist Score & Volunteering OOTD

You know that feeling when you check one of the items off your thrifting wishlist that has been there forever? It feels pretty darn good, guys. I've been looking for a 1940's-like pinafore dress for years now & I finally found one at the ARC! It doesn't hurt that this silhouette has become more popular in the last year, but the new styles are so much shorter than I normally wear, so I was glad to find this dress in a longer length. Now, if I could only find a romper in a similar style, I'd be a happy girl!

This past week I was volunteering at one of our local high schools & then going out to dinner, so I pulled this outfit together. Though I've already worn this a ton this summer, I think this dress will really get a bunch of use this fall & winter with a pair of black tights underneath & my oxfords or even a pair of boots! What item off your thrifted wishlist have you found recently? I would love to know!

1980's Puffed Sleeve Button-up TopThrifted $1.50
Black Pinafore Dress- Thrifted, $3.50
Grey Braided Flats- Blowfish, Thrifted $2.00
Watch- Fitbit Alta & Band, $99.00 & $12.99
Braided Headband-  Set of 6, $5.99

OOTD: UNC Bluegrass Concert Under the Stars

A couple of Sundays ago I headed down to UNC's Concerts Under the Stars! The first show was the UNC bluegrass faculty concert (with teachers from the brand-spanking new Bluegrass department) & it was phenominal! Whenever I hear anyone say that there is no culture in Greeley, I have to think that they're not looking very hard! If you didn't have a chance to check out any of the other shows in the line-up this month, definitely plan to catch the series next summer!
