Snow Memes

Just a few of my favorites while I’ve got snow on the brain. Storm Brutus showed up this morning and it hasn’t stopped snowing yet! Good news for resorts that are planning to open in the coming weeks.

Addictions

When I like something, I like it too much. I tell 6000 people it’s my favorite. Here are my current favorites:

*Pocket – This app is the instapaper plus for Android. I love it for my phone, computer, and the Chrome app that syncs it with my Twitter feed. I love the “read it later” idea – you scan when you have a second and go back for more when you have the time. Can’t think of anything else I need to claim my new Samsung Galaxy is just as rad (way radder, let’s be real) as an iPhone.

*The new bit.ly – Linking through bit.ly has become more than just a short Twitter sharing method. It’s brilliant. I feel so powerful knowing who is actually clicking through on links I post. And if I want to reread something it’s saved on a page with the stats.

*Game of Thrones – I don’t have cable, but just started reading the first book. It is enthralling. Feels good to be using my Kindle again.

*The new Passion Pit – I’m not good at music suggestions the way other people are. I am convinced I listen to the best music in the world no matter the genre. But right now, since Passion Pit is coming August 9th to Twilight Concert Series, I thought I’d share a whole album before you can buy it – NPR is awesome for doing that.

Is there something that you are hopelessly in love with lately? Let me know! Recommendations and blog comments are more of my favorites.

A fun photo to share – the sunset from my house last week.

Don’t Forget

It’s been a wild half year. I joke that hitting the BIG 3-ohh has added to my wisdom and brilliance, but let’s be real. I feel like the same nervous awkward chick I’ve been since college.

I will run around trying new things, but I’m constantly worried if I’m successful enough. I write articles I stay up at night fearing people will hate, and I get stressed if my Mom doesn’t call every day. I’m always meeting new people and worrying if they like me, wondering if I said the right/wrong thing, hoping everyone got my Twitter jokes.

Trying to be a grown up is silly. So I’m working on just being. And being awesome.

Being “yourself” is a funny concept. Accepting that I probably think about it more than maybe anyone else is part of the reality, I guess. How much do you wonder about what others think? Does your own voice get lost in people pleasing? Trying to be something you aren’t? It might distract you FROM AWESOME.

Whether you are the highest form of “got your self figured out” or are just gazing at the path to an end goal, Don’t Forget to be Awesome.

Sometimes I like Pinterest. And I like short, sweet inspiring quotes. Two things I might have just lost some of you admitting. But every once it a while, I find it totally uplifting to read some of these quotes I’ve bookmarked. It’s a good reminder – we are all on a journey. They are all different, but all intertwined. While you are figuring you out, don’t forget to be awesome.

Girly Spice

My hairdresser is wonderful.

I loved this sideways french braid that she (MB) showed me a while back.

Then today, I got to try this braid, that someone else found on the internet and tweeted. Look at all the social media work for a hairstyle!

I know some of you aren’t in love with my two tone hair – and I admit it even bugs me anywhere that isn’t Park City (SLC)…

but I think it looks great with this waterfall braid style!

Her husband has been calling me Sporty Spice – I’ve been out rock climbing and playing volleyball with them, and he is more used to me in heels and dresses.

I try to balance both, so there’s the girly stuff, stay tuned for the adventure blogs!
