Catching Up... April 2019 Edition

It’s been a month since our last catch-up so I thought I’d do another post! Of course you can follow me day to day on Instagram (or if I see you all the time in real life…) but this is always fun for those who don’t and for me to take a look back on what I’ve been up to recently.

Running Again

I’m running the Chicago Marathon on October 13th with a few of my cousins to raise money for The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation (my name doesn’t show up on the page but it’s my team!), which is the rare cancer that my aunt passed away from this past October. Since I’m running a marathon, I figured I should actually start running again… So I ran about 6 miles last week. HA. BUT I did run 4 all at once! Baby steps… Wish me luck on building up a base before official training at the beginning of June!

Beautycounter Store in Denver

Beautycounter is opening a pop up location in downtown Denver at the end of April and my team is hosting a private event! If you’d like to come to the event, send me an email at peaceloveandoats@gmail.com so we can get you RSVP’d. If you just want to check out the store, let me know! It’s a great opportunity to see their products and test things out in person.

If you don’t live in the area, Beautycounter does have a 60-day return policy that allows you to use the products and send them back if you don’t like it!

Spring Break

Yes, I get spring break! We had our spring break during the last week of March and it was nice to have a little time off. I did spend 3 days skiing and did a lot of errands and clean up around my apartment so it wasn’t 100% relaxing but I did get to do some fun things. I went to a coworker’s art show (and drinks before, of course) and did a 5k (walk) in the snow. A few of my coworkers and I also went to a speakeasy called Williams and Graham in the Highlands neighborhood (where the cool kids live) since our fundraising Gala coming up is speakeasy themed. Basically it was work research… right?

I Need a New Devotional

I finished reading 100 Days to Brave a little while ago and haven’t found a new devotional that I want to try. I’d really like something that builds on itself, like a lesson, rather than just day to day. I’d also like something not too long because that gets intimidating and I hate making that big of a commitment. Any suggestions?

My Niece is Three!

The older of my two nieces turned three last week and I can’t believe how much she has changed in the past six months. She is talking in full sentences and has grown up so much! Her little sister is almost eight months old so we’re getting into my favorite age - the 1-2 range where they want you to pick them up all the time and are learning to walk and talk. They’re just so cute. So sorry I can’t show a good picture but you can imagine… haha.

And that’s what’s been going on in my life!

Do you have a favorite devotional?

Whats the best thing you ever did for spring break?
