If I had to describe Denver in one word it would be this: GREEN.
There is so much greenery EVERYWHERE—it’s beautiful! Everywhere you look you see bright, green grass and beautiful ( green ) trees. SO GORGEOUS.
PLUS, the architecture in Denver is AMAZING.
Since it was my first time in Denver, I threw on my Nikes first thing in the morning, and ran through the downtown area.
To me, that’s the best way to experience a new city—to run through it. Do you agree?
So here are a few photos from my run…
I hope you enjoy them! : )
( My absolute favorite building in Denver: Denver Art Museum. It’s stunning!! Gorgeous from every. single. angle. I’m obsessed. )
( Another cool shot of the architecture. )
( And an awesome sculpture… Can you picture me ooing and ahing my entire run yet? HA! )
There were these adorable, ( super colorful ) little pianos all over 16th Street—”Your Keys to the City” series. This one was my favorites.
Can you spot the teeny unicorn?
( It’s in the bottom right corner : ) So cute. )
( So green—I love it! )
So, that was all before work… After work, I walked around and did some more sightseeing…
Naturally, I ended up at Voodoo Doughnut… HAHA.
They’re practically Instagram royalty, so I had to check them out and see what all the fuss is about. #GoodResearch ; )
I got 3 doughnuts:
+ Bacon Maple Bar Doughnut ( b/c obviously I’m going to try it—it has bacon! )
+ Voodoo Doll Doughnut ( b/c my experience wouldn’t be complete without it. )
+ & Voodoo Bubble Doughnut ( b/c it’s pretty & pink… HA. )
I LOVED the Bubble Doughnut. It was DELICIOUS! And the Doll doughnut was amazing too—really good chocolate. Picture this for a moment… You know when you decide “this will be my last bite?” But then you have that last bite, and think, “wait I need another bite of that other one” ( in this case, the other doughnut )?
Well, that happened a few times between the Bubble & Doll doughnuts… I kept going back & forth between the two.
The Bacon doughnut was cool because it had bacon on it—but taste-wise, the other two were WAY better, in my opinion.
These little guys below would’ve happily taken a bite out of any of these 3 though. They were SO adorable!
So shortly after I did my research ( ha )…
It started POURING ( & not a California sprinkle—real rain. )
It was weird because it was still pretty hot & it only lasted about 15 minutes—but I still got soaked.
Anyways, I walked through it because I really wanted to see the Colorado Convention Center Blue Bear.
& I did! : ) Check it out…
Isn’t he cute!? & so blue!
Overall, I LOVED Denver. If you haven’t visited, or even if you have, I definitely recommend booking a flight and spending some time there.

To me, summer is all about living life carefree.
Backyard BBQs with close friends and family… Refreshing cocktails… Pool parties… Lounging in the sunshine… Vacations & exploring new places…
AH!! I LOVE SUMMER!! 😍👙🍹
So this month, I brought together some of my favorite songs that evoke that carefree, summer spirit! & voila ⇢ we have JOYFETTI Playlist: Carefree.
Listen on SPOTIFY!
Happy Summer, Babes!
Can’t wait to grill this pineapple this weekend!
Pretty flowers while walking with Minty.
Lately, I’ve been really into working out at home.
I can work out at 5 a.m. in the morning—without having to brace the cold and drive in the dark.
I can squeeze in a quick one when I’m pressed for time.
And little Minty can relax close by, or do her own workouts… 😂
I LOVE this picture from when she was a wee baby (~ 7 months). She still thinks the yoga mat is hers… LOL.
So, here are my must-haves for getting the most out of my at-home workouts:
+ Yoga mat (<< of course!)
+ Free weights
+ Foam roller (<< I love this one from Kayla Itsines)—having a foam roller at home has been AMAZING! Anytime I feel a little tight, I can grab my foam roller & roll it out. Done! (Hopefully 😂)
+ Kayla Itsines’ Bikini Body Guide (<< this is where I get most of my soreness from. HA!)
+ Ankle weights (<< LOVE these for butt work-outs—donkey kicks, etc…)
+ Fingerless weight lifting gloves
+ Water, of course
This is hands down my favorite grab-and-go snack bar: Larabar Peanut Butter Cookie.
& has only THREE INGREDIENTS.
What do you use when you work out at home?
The quickest way to get instantly, incredibly happy…?

An awesome song.
Don’t you love how a great song can completely pick-up your mood?
Sometimes, I play music with the sole intention of getting myself into the mood I want to be in—my target mood (ha!).
So I’ve been putting together playlists that do just that.

Here’s the playlist I turn to when I want to be:
