Best Stuff This Week vol.1

The end of last week and the weekend were awesome! I've been down lately, I'm still getting used to my new life and Denver. It was wonderful to have such a great few days–I needed them. 

First of all, I almost exploded when Chelsea Peretti retweeted and favorited my tweet. It was in response to her during the Comey trial. The community I was tweeting with was already fun and then Chelsea Peretti favorited me.

I finally completed Witcher 3 earlier in the week and am now onto Bioshock Collection. I couldn't move on until I finished it. Six months and an epic story later, I am on to the add-on games. Every time I finish a long game, it feels great. And I get to play a new game. All sides are win. If you're looking for a new game to play and you want to talk more about Witcher 3, please send me an email. I'd love to talk about it!

Lastly, I had my first art show. For so long, I've been working away by myself. Only a few friends and Husband have seen all of my work. Once I collected all of the pieces from different hiding places around the apartment (4 animals), I was overwhelmed by how great everything looks together. I had a blast, I made some new friends, and (most importantly) I learned that setting up my own booth isn't as scary as I thought it was. Also, no one laughed at me and called me a fraud.

I hope last week was as great for you as it was for me. Have a wonderful week!

We moved to Denver!

Hubs and I moved to Denver last week! So far, we love it here! It's so beautiful.

In order to get here, we drove across the country, from North Carolina to Colorado. With four pets in the car. Figuring out how to deal with the cats was quite an adventure in itself. We drugged them, and the puppy.

Seeing the country was amazing. The first night, we made it all the way to St. Louis. I'd never been and was very excited to see the Arch and the beauty of the houses and the streets. We put pee pads in the cat carriers but one of the cats, Turtle, went the bathroom in the carrier then rolled all in it. Once we got to the hotel, we had to clean her in the sink. It was quite a task, cleaning an angry cat who'd been in a carrier for 12 hours covered in pee. I'm surprised neither of us lost an arm.

Driving through Kansas was gorgeous. I always assumed Kansas was a flat, dirt, prairie wasteland. I think that the Wizard of Oz was part of that assumption, but it's so beautiful! There are so many wind turbines and trees and rolling hills. Tons of cows. 

After two days of driving across 8 states, we made it to our new house in our new town. After only a week here, I love it. The people are so nice and welcoming and everywhere I look there is beauty. I'm excited to get to better know Denver.
