…Because that is the only way to describe it. I have been trying to do posts along the way but it has been one thing after another and finally I feel like I can come up for air. I thought a list would be the best way to go because well, that is pretty much how my month went. The saddest part – I actually had to check my calendar to remember some of these items.
o Started off the month with Gino Velardi’s fashion show (OK-1 day before October) but what a blast, his new line as absolutely stunning that if I had the money and a place to wear it I would purchase 80% of it! Besides promising him that I would finally walk in his next show, I was also asked to model for a new Denver magazine, DeVelo!
o Birthday came and went with a blur. Wednesday started off with a beautiful sunrise, my midterm finished, work and then 2.5 hours of school
o Birthday weekend started off with moving day filled with pouring rain that took longer than I hoped but finished with enough time to unpack most of it. I have even started decorating more than the last apartment; my favorite piece is the chandelier wall décor above my bed
o That Sunday my friend Luisa treated me to a candy bouquet and dinner at Ale House at Amatos. Worst service ever but after writing a letter to management, we are willing to go back and try with the $100 gift card they sent me
o Celebrated a belated birthday with Michael up in Estes Park. We rode horses in the morning, which wasn’t as fun as I thought it was going to be (slowest.trail.ride.ever) but I am glad we did it. I was just happy to be in the mountains as I hadn’t really had the chance to that summer
o School has been keeping me busy. I realized that I am not doing as well as I thought but now is the time to move it up a notch. I even spent 2 hours in the library just trying to figure out a topic for my 5 page comparison paper. (I decided on comparing the difference between Jewish and Hindu marriage ceremonies and traditions)
o Spent time with my bar family at Salty Rita’s watching them carve pumpkins. I should have jumped in but I wasn’t dressed for it and was too exhausted from work and school to operate a knife after having a glass of wine
o I absolutely love my new car! While the big 4-valve V8 engine has increased the charge at the gas pump, I still have no regrets. From the simplest of things like being able to roll down my window to the luxuries like the most amazing seat warmers ever. I honestly love those butt warmers so much that I am worried that I will have to replace them in the next few years
o We had our first dump of snow in the city. 4-6 inches by my house. It seems to be a tradition in Denver that it has to snow around Halloween. Poor trees took a beating from the heavy wet snow but more so in Northern Colorado. It is a beautiful site but by Sunday there will be very little evidence that it ever snowed at all. In fact, 2 days later my lawn is already 20% green grass!
o This weekend is Halloween weekend and instead of playing dress up and hitting the town, I will be spending my time finishing my apartment and writing my paper that requires more reading material then my brain is capable of handling
I have a new personal project that started brewing last weekend and while I can’t talk about it now, I will be an open book when I get some more answers but that will many weeks and maybe months. Also thinking my blog is due for a big makeover – something with a more personal touch….and I know just where to go! If you are in the mood for a blog change and haven’t checked out Munchkinland Designs yet, you are missing out! She does an amazing work and luckily for me she now offers options for WordPress users. That’s about it for this month but next month I am going to attempt a blog challenge as I have never participated in one and thinking now is the time. Anybody have any ideas? If so, let me know!
