Adding a Little Glam DIY

I am currently obsessed with metallics. It is quite ironic considering that fact that a couple years ago I would not have been caught dead with anything gold, rose gold, chrome –  basically anything that wasn’t sterling silver (or brushed nickel, it’s popular “cousin”). But now…my phone is gold, my computer is gold, I have…

The 12 Beers of Christmas

I was recently at Costco and saw an Advent calendar for beer lovers. A German beer for every day. I loved the idea, but with a $60 price tag,  I just wasn’t sold on it. So I decided to do my own. Well December 1st came and went, and this month has gotten a little…

Grist Brewing Company

I first bought a Grist Brewing Company bomber at the liquor store as a gift for a friend. It was their Tartanium Berliner Weisse, and I only picked it because it was a sour the label was pretty. My friend gave me raving reviews about the beer, so I figured it was about time I try…

Second Home

Rarely ever do we get a date night out, especially now that we have two kids. And with my love of food and trying new places, a night out calls for a new place! Just behind the front desk at the JW Marriott in Cherry Creek is the entrance to Second Home. I have heard…

Lone Tree Brewing Company

I always love checking out the local breweries.

I…

Gooey Butter Cookies

I absolutely love bringing sweets to my clients, my lenders, and the rest of my sphere. No one wants to just get a business card, but I don’t know a person that doesn’t love cookies or cupcakes or brownies. With the baby, it had been a while since I had made anything, so this week…
