Summer 2014!

Wow, I can't believe tomorrow is the first day of Summer! Why is it that time just flies by now that I am older? It's crazy to think that this will be the first summer in my entire 28 years of living that a beach is more than a 30 minute drive away! When I think of summer, I think of days laying out on the beach or by the pool. I think of BBQs with family and friends. I think of long days and fun nights. But this summer will be a little bit different. I am living in Colorado and I am feeling very land locked. So what is a girl to do? 

Here are the very exciting things that I will be doing this summer:
  1. Work Out - I have recently started to take yoga classes at a studio and I am loving their Sculpt classes. They are yoga classes with weights added. I always leave feeling a million times better then when I walked in. I might even try cross fit! 
  2. White Water Rafting -  This one has been on my list since I moved to Colorado last August and it will get done this summer! 
  3. Hike a 14ner - Most likely it will be Pikes Peak and to prepare for this one, I will be getting out as much as possible and hike trails all around Colorado. 
  4. BBQ - Joe and I BBQ year around, so I am sure this summer will be no exception. I love to grill just about everything! I will also use this one as an excuse to have friends over :) (I am looking at you Mallory)
  5. Go to Jazz in the Park - Every Sunday in Denver they have Jazz in the park. I have heard that it is a ton of fun, filled with music and wine. What more do you need?
  6. Horse Back Riding - My newest hobby is going to the barn and riding Kit! I have been having so much fun and I can't wait to spend my summer days at the barn! 
  7. Be a Bridesmaid -  My best friend Brittany is getting married this July and I am honored to be apart of her special day. 
  8. Plan my Wedding - I really hope I can get most of the planning done by the end of this summer! 
This summer I just want to spend as much time as I can outside with people that matter. I want to truly enjoy Colorado and everything that it has to offer. Although it is not the beach filled summer that I am use to, I am sure Joe and I will find a way to make it a memorable summer! 

What are your summer plans?
Do you have any suggestions on things to do in Colorado?

It is a great way to remember the big things and the little things!

Date Night
Game of Thrones
Horse Back Riding
Quiet time
Time to workout

Xtra Days Off

What are you thankful for?
If you have a list, add the link in a comment, I would love to read them!

Weekly Wishes

The Nectar Collective

I am not sure how I stumbled upon this link-up, but I love the idea! I just started following Melyssa from The Nectar Collectives and I am exited to join in the weekly link-up! It gives me the perfect Monday morning blog post and opportunity to write down a few things that I would like to accomplish this week.  

This Week's Wishes

1. Go to yoga 4 times- I just joined a new yoga studio, so it would be great to keep at it and use my membership! I love the feeling after my practice, but I must admit that I am not always the best at sticking to it. 
2. Run 16 miles - This week marks week 2 of my half marathon training. According to my Nike+ app, I need to run 16 miles this week to stay on track.
3. Wedding Planning - I wish I was the type of girl that had my wedding planned out since I was 5, but I am not. I have been dragging my feet and it is time to make some serious choices. 
4. Clean out my closet - I have a serious shopping issue, yet I always "never have anything to wear". Joe just washed a ton of clothes and folded them and I need to put the clothes away, but I don't have any room. So I need to clean out my closet and organize it!

I have feeling that these 3 things will be on my weekly wishes list often, but they are all important and I need to start somewhere right? Head on over to The Nectar Collectives and link up you Weekly Wishes!

What's on your to-do list this week?
Any closet organization tips?
