Capital One Destination Venture Denver
I attended Capital One Destination Venture at Belmar this past December in Lakewood. I had seen the giant Destination Venture Dome at Grandoozy this past Fall so I was stoked to go check it out! Honestly, I thought it was an exclusive air-conditioned dome for cardholders and I was so jelly I didn’t have a Capital One Card to go escape the 90-degree heat! Turns it out it was for everyone – whoops!
When I went to Oslo last fall I wanted a big blanket scarf to dress up my outfits and keep me warm. I scanned Amazon for the best blanket scarf and with over 600 reviews I knew this was the one. I have never gotten so many compliments on something that was so cheap! This Amazon blanket scarf is only 9.99! FYI, I am rocking the “gray” version.
In less than 4 weeks, we have gone to contemplating buying a house to owning one! Seriously, we saw it, put a bid in and got accepted all in one weekend! A short (but feels like a lifetime) 3 weeks later we are homeowners!! Clay and I are beyond excited to start this next chapter of our lives and really put down roots here in Denver.
Yes, that totally means lots of home content to come! We hope to spruce up the kitchen and yard this year and eventually do a big addition! Once we are settled I’ll be sure to update with pictures!

Lots of great info on investing and money management with inspiring and empowering woman.

Who knew that white queso could be the mythical unicorn of Mexican food? Oh wait, for everyone who has ever lived in the south and the moved elsewhere, they know.
Some of you may be like “What’s the dealio with white queso?”, also known simply as cheese dip. So let me tell you, it is COMPLETELY different than queso, or really any yellow cheese substance you dip chips into.
This past fall I went on a work trip to Oslo, Norway! Pretty crazy for a first work trip! While we spent two solid days working we did get a full day of sightseeing and more food and wine then I thought possible. We seriously ate some of the best meals I have ever had in my life in Oslo. Since our trip stretched our over the course of a week I have condensed my recommendations into what shakes out to be about two full days.
