Turkey Day Outfit

Can anyone else believe that Thanksgiving is THIS Thursday? I'm still trying to figure out how this year is almost over. I will be working this Thursday since Alex is out of town, so my staff can enjoy some time with their families. If I were going home for the Holidays, this would be the perfect dress. Nice and flow-ey so you still look nice but have plenty of room to stuff that belly full and no one will notice your food baby!

Now, I feel as thought I should share everyone what I'm thankful for this year. 

My husband-He puts up with me and my crazy ideas and adventures, takes my blog photos, is the best Instagram husband and treats me like a Queen. My family-it's tough being far away from them, but frequent visits, phone calls, letters in the mail and text messages make it a little easier. My friends-you guys are the best! I feel as though I've surrounded myself with strong women that inspire me everyday. My church-how lovely it was to step into a service at Red Rocks Community Church and feel like I was finally home. It was one of my New Year's resolutions to find a church and small group this year and push me and my faith-and I couldn't be happier!

What is everyone thankful for? There are countless blessings, you just have to look for the silver lining sometimes.

Happy Turkey Day Everyone!

Date Night

It's Tuesday-which means it's my HUMP DAY! 

Last Saturday Alex and I went for a little date night to see Doctor Strange and get some sushi. I absolutely LOVED Doctor Strange-highly recommended, and the sushi was a delicious ending to our night. Denver has been freakishly warm still with no snow in sight, so a jacket is only needed in the morning or evening. Trust me, I love warm weather, but it just feels weird that I haven't seen snow yet this year.

The weather forecast says snow tomorrow-so maybe I will get to see that snow this year finally. I'm ready to hit the slopes, but first we need some SNOW. Anyone else ready to see some powder?

Have a lovely week, friends!

Southern Hospitality

This last weekend I jumped on an airplane and made my way to visit Alex, and my cousins in Nashville! It was all pretty spur of the moment, and I found a cheap flight so it worked out perfectly. I decided to only bring my backpack with me since Frontier charges you a month's salary to check your bag (nice try, guys). I had the most amazing time while I was there, and Laura made sure to bring me to all the best places! Here's a little trip re-cap and some travel tips for all you wanderers:

We went to Germantown for dinner at Butchertown Hall and I think I died and went to heaven. It's this super hip dining space, using wood-fired cooking techniques with some seriously large portions. Alex and I shared the chicken and ribs and we were not disappointed in the slightest. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for all my meat lovers out there in Nashville!

Laura took me to Steadfast Coffee where I read, and she did some work. This was probably the best latte I've ever had (or at least top 5), and it was BRULEED you guys. The atmosphere was perfect for meeting friends, working on how I'm going to change the world, or to disconnect with a book.

That evening, I went with Laura as her photographer to Taste of Nashville (check out her re-cap here) and I filled my belly with tacos, cakes, chicken, the most amazing steak in my life, and some spirits! Laura was nice enough to snap a few photos of me before we left for the night, just like our good ole' co-blogging days.

I can't even believe Saturday was real life still. We started the day early and headed to Lynchburg, TN for lunch at Miss Mary Bobo's. It was the cutest little home where you're invited to sit around a dinner table with total strangers and share a family style-home cooked-southern made lunch. There was fried chicken, fried okra, meatloaf, apples cooked in Jack Daniel's, mac and cheese, sweet tea and the most delicious chocolate pie! Our host, Emily, was the most delightful Southern Charmer who was not shy to admit her love for Jack Daniel's.

After we were stuff to the brim with southern food, we headed to Jack Daniel's for a tour! It was so cool to learn about the process, history, and get to sample different Tennessee Whiskey's. They are celebrating their 150th year this year-so it was only natural that Alex got a bottle of Gentleman's Jack and had it inscribed with the Cubbies at the World Series Champs!

The rest of the weekend we went to some bars, listened to live music and Laura even brought me to church on Sunday with her. I'm so happy I had the chance to visit Alex and my cousins!
Until my next adventure-thanks for reading!
