1st Half of May

1st Half of May

I was thinking the other day how most of my readers are not my local Colorado friends. I’ve mentioned what sort of rules or guidelines we have in Colorado during this pandemic, but I haven’t mentioned statistics about where Colorado stands.

2nd Half of March 2020

2nd Half of March 2020

Sunday, March 15th was the first day that ALL our plans were cancelled. We spent most of the day virtually reaching out to people and didn’t get around to doing our church meeting until 7pm. It went okay, but we decided it needed to happen a lot earlier in the day. The kids didn’t have school the next day (the district was giving the teachers a day to gather their wits) so I made a schedule for us to hopefully…

Come Workout With Me!

Come Workout With Me!

I’m doing some Zoom workouts this next month while my work is closed. I’m even doing one for the whole family that I’m really excited about! Check out my work’s calendar for days, times, and links to the Zoom meetings. I’d love to see familiar faces there!

1st Half of March 2020

1st Half of March 2020

This March seems like one of those months that has a big divide. There was the first part where life was more or less normal and then there is the 2nd half (the half in which we’re currently living) where everything has been cancelled. It only seems fitting that I write about these two parts separately. (Also, I have a lot less going on now than usual, ha, ha.)

At Home Workout

At Home Workout

My work has been shut down by a state executive order closing all gyms until at least April 16th. I actually think it was a good call – the Golden Community Center, like most gyms, is a bustling place with lots of older clientele, kids running around to various classes, and lots of equipment sharing. Still, it’s hard when your routine, especially such a healthy one, gets disrupted. A few of our trainers and fitness instructors were asked to put…

Basement Remodel

Basement Remodel

You know that book “If you Give a Mouse a Cookie?” I feel like that’s the way house projects are. You go to do one simple thing like patch a wall and before you know it you’ve remodeled your basement. We’ve lived in our house for almost 9 years now. When we purchased the house, the basement carpet seemed fairly new. Under our tenure, the carpet endured 9 years of wear and tear, 2 floods, potty training two children, and…

February 2020

These two pictures show up in my google photos one right after the other. The right is the last picture I took in Costa Rica and the left is the first picture I took in Colorado.

Costa Rica Trip 2020

Costa Rica Trip 2020

I have been wanting to go to Costa Rica for years. I can’t pinpoint exactly what attracted me to the country. I do remember learning about Costa Rica in high school Spanish and thinking it was cool that they didn’t have an army. As an adult looking at traveling internationally for the first time, it helped that it’s a relatively safe and very peaceful country. Being gorgeous and warm didn’t hurt either.
