April was an AWESOME month. While I may not have been the most social person (hello finals!) overall it was really great 🙂 Here are the highlights!
I have been using this mildly flavored oil in places where I typically use extra virgin olive oil just to switch things up a bit. I even used it in pesto and the end result was fabulous! If you are looking to try something new in the kitchen, this oil is a good ingredient to experiment with!
I wanted some shoes that were comfortable for walking, but also cute and versatile and these shoes are SO it! I really am in love and kind of want them in every color 🙂
This coconut oil may sound a bit odd, but trust me when I tell you that it tastes absolutely wonderful (and I’m not a butter-lovin’ kind of gal!). I have been using it to make homemade popcorn, and it seriously makes the stuff more irresistible than it already is.
I had so much fun hiking when the weather was nice, and I can’t wait for it to be nice so we can do this ALL the time.
Last weekend, Brian and I tried this new-to-us coffee and cocktail spot in downtown Denver and seriously loved it. There were lots of tables for chatting, the decor was cool and comfortable, and the lattes were fantastic.
I highly recommend the brownie and Brian highly recommends the carrot cake cupcake (both were wonderful!)
So creamy, flavorful, comforting, and tasty. If you love curry you will love this dish.
We had a couple of singing gigs last month, and we have another this month. I absolutely LOVE singing with these ladies and I am so thankful to have them as my creative outlet.
Early in April, I was invited to attend a brunch hosted by Califia Farms and the Dinner Party Association. The company wanted to introduce us to some of their new products and allow us to get to know their brand.
The event was beautiful, the drinks and food was absolutely delicious, and I really enjoyed meeting the people behind the brand that I spend so much “virtual” time with.
The event was more proof to me that this company truly listens to their customers (they removed carrageenan from their products and they have come up with more no-sugar beverages!).
Overall, I was really impressed but the company.
A new friend, Katie is launching her business and is totally killing it. I feel so lucky to have met her, to have her as someone to look up to in the industry, and to have her has a friend.
Before my senior year of college, I interned in Washington DC and had the best roommates ever (no joke!). We quickly became inseparable friends and did almost everything together that summer. One of those roommates had a long layover in Denver, so we met up for brunch! It was so great to catch up with her after such a long time apart.

I’ve been wanting to try avocado oil! I hear it heats up at high temps much better than olive oil. I’ve been eyeing it at costco..

I loooove NOW’s avocado oil! I love to use it in homemade salad dressings. I also love their coconut infused oils- I love using the garlic flavor for sautéing veggies
Thanks, Sara! Such a great idea to put it in salad dressings.
