Thursday Things + The Bachelor: Season 21

March 16, 2017

Hi friends! Long time no talk! This poor little space of mine has been so neglected. January and February were kind of dud months, am I right? Like, why is the coldest and dreariest month (January) the longest. Ay. Anyways. I tried doing paleo January and it lasted me 2 weeks. I gotta live, especially on the weekends.

If you're like me and you neglect your blog, maybe you're also like me and LOVE Instagram. Here's my plug that when I'm not blogging, I'm most likely on Instagram. You can find all the good stuff there.

Let's catch up.

Bachelor. Did you see that Nick is "happily ever after?" He picked Vanessa, who is probably the most argumentative contestant ever. On After the Final Rose, all they talked about was how hard it's been, but.... they love each other. So, we shall see. One piece of relationship advice my mother always gave me growing up was "It shouldn't be that hard." Yes, relationships are constant work and dedication to each other, but the day to day should not be a constant battle. But, hey, I'm a lover of love and will wish them the best. I would not be totally shocked if Nick was on Bachelor in Paradise this summer though, just sayin.

I'm an aunt again! My darling SIL had a beautiful little baby boy, Otto. He is a little dream boat. I am now an aunt to FIVE adorable nieces and nephews. If my SIL's keep up the good work, maybe the pressure will be taken off Adam and I. Well, probably not, but maybe a little. The last weekend in February, Adam and I zipped back to Omaha to get in some much needed family time and of course, baby snuggles.  It was so darn cold in Omaha, but we managed to get a ton in. We surprised my father in law for his 60th birthday, watched Otto get baptized, had lots of drinks with friends and snuck in an early AM brunch with the girls. Oh Omaha. I love you. I love you so much I'm coming back this weekend.

My cousin Rachel is considering making a big move from Detroit to Denver and wanted to come out and visit. Needless to say, we hit the ground running the second she landed. Our first night, we went to Kitchen in downtown and my love, it was so delicious. If my Denver people are reading, stop what you're doing and make reservations. It's so Then we had to show her Union Station, Red Rocks, Linger in Highlands, breweries, hikes and pure barre. It was such a fun weekend. Now, if you know of anyone needing a speech therapist for kiddos, let me know. It is now my life mission to get her to Denver.

Blog Photo Shoot: I had my first semi-official blog photo shoot. Can we just talk about how nerve wrecking and unnatural it is for me to pose. This is NOT a thing for me. People are so good at it, and I'm over here trying to not make my face look like I'm pooping. Needless to say I was so nervous. But, ya know what I spent 5 hours in front of a camera and I'm pretty damn proud that I finally conquered my photo blog fear. So hey, haters, comment how you'd like. Here's hoping they only get better. Fashion bloggers, send all the tips.

And the best part, next week, there will be an entire blooper blog. You don't want to miss it. Here's a sneak peak of me causally drinking wine at Union Station. I'm so natural. HA!

Happy Thursday my friends. We are so dang close to the end of the week. This weekend my future sister in law Nico is having her bachelorette party so I'm hoping over to Omaha for a weekend of girlfriends, pictures and to be honest, probably too much wine. This is when you wanna follow me on Snapchat, because we all know bachelorette parties are prime for snaps. (Kgrace01)

Tomorrow, I'm gonna let you get to know me a little better. It'll be fun! Stay tuned.
