Friday Faves #3 and blog updates

Hi! It’s finally Friday! I’ve had a busy week, and I’m ready for the weekend. I’m heading to Kansas City for my cousin’s wedding. This is the first cousin wedding, so it will be really fun to see everyone! Does anyone have any recommendations for me in KC? Today I wanted to share some things I’ve been liking these past few weeks.

Friday Faves

Lemon water- I’ve been trying to decrease my caffeine intake and lemon water has really helped balance this. I think it has helped my digestive system a bit too!

Got my Rocky Mountain Super Pass plus in the mail! Can’t wait to use it this year! I am really excited to check out Steamboat and Crested Butte!

Breaded walleye. Now that I’m a landlocked Colorado girl, I don’t get to eat as much walleye. I forget how much I love it! Got some when I was in MN last week at Hilltop which is one of my family’s favorite restaurants.

Colorful veggies. Look at this purple and yellow cauliflower. Purple cauliflower gets its rich purple color from anthocyanins which are flavonoid pigments. Yellow cauliflower gets its colors from carotenoids, vital nutrients that help keep your skin, mucous membranes, and eyes healthy. Learn more about health benefits of cauliflower

Blog Updates

Wow, there are so many resources for new bloggers online. There is a multitude of great sites, and I could seriously spend days updating my blog, pinterest, instagram. I could also spend a lot of money on  themes, scheduling websites, etc. In the last few weeks, I’ve been looking for ways to update my website and my following. Thought I would share with you what I’ve changed:
