We are a nation of immigrants, and I will keep fighting. #resistance #strongertogether

August 6,  2016 – Oh my there was a lot today. Blueberry pancakes. Mom staring at the yard, becoming inspired. Family projects in the back yard, and drapes in the living room. Delicious dinner followed by drinks at Bovine & Barley. Staying up late with mom while she staged our home. The highlight might have been her midnight glass of wine. #lucky #love #family

July 17, 2016 – Kicked off the day with Orange Theory. Put the calories back in with brunch and some casual day drinking in Old Town.

I heart vacation, my husband and our friends. #friendyear

July 15, 2016 – Friend-i-versary begins! We almost died trying to land in El Paso, so just surviving was happy. Then we got free drinks. Then hanging out in the kitchen of our Airbnb with more drinks, and chatter, and laughter. #love #lucky #friendyear

July 14, 2016 – Um this work madness is going on too long. It’s like a nightmare. Thank goodness for my little family. #lucky #love

July 13, 2016 – Another brutal work day. However, these things happened: my abs looked good on the mirror this morning, my boss sent an agreement back with very few added changes, and candidate accepted the job! #hardworkisgoodwork

July 12, 2016 – Brutal work day was tempered by an email from my womb mate telling me how pretty I am and that she misses me, Whole Foods salad, dark chocolate, my husband helping me unload the dishwasher, and the thought of friendiversary in two days! #friendyear

June 23, 2016 – Worked out and got my favorite smoothie from the gym. Followed it up with a few cocktails and some trashy tv. #winning

June 22, 2016 – Today, I tried to start something new: stop being overwhelmed and stressed about work. I went to lunch, sat down and read a book, and decided to respond to emails after getting back to the office. I am trying to offload tasks where possible and accept the help of colleagues instead of trying to do it all myself. I  will try to REALLY disconnect from work at night and on weekends. Day 1, and I got caught by S responding to an email on my phone at 9 pm. Haha. #babysteps #happinessisachoice

My heart is full! #lucky #love #weekendlikeyoumeanit #friendyear

June 16, 2016 – Laughed with a colleague. Hubby picked up the groceries. #lucky

June 15, 2016 – A colleague complimented my hair in my first meeting of the day. And she said it always looks so healthy! Later as my day went haywire, another colleague liked the language I crafted for her agreement. Score! Managed to escape for lunch with a book. Iced the doughnuts I made on Sunday for tomorrow’s treat delivery. And realized that I love my sense of style. Oh! Can’t forget that I told my husband I wanted this hilarious tank top, and next thing I knew it had been ordered. #lucky #love #humpday #hardworkisgoodwork

June 14, 2016 – Bed. Bed is good.

June 13, 2016 – Monday blues turned into that pink dress with the flippy skirt, five compliments on it (!), and my favorite little escape on a weekday — lunch with a book. Yes, I’m a nerd. #itsthelittlethings

June 12, 2016 – Happy that we stayed safe and dry during a crazy thunderstorm. Rocked an Orange Theory class. It wasn’t exactly FUN, but I felt good about myself afterwards. Good enough to help myself to a few (okay, maybe more than a few) of Sterling’s french fries. Man, do I love fries. #sundaybest

May 28, 2016 -So you know how I feel about Saturdays. There are always so many happy moments! This was a special Saturday though, as we had an early flight to Denver for skiing and friend time. Then we missed our flight. But S and I made the best of our little mistake. We had brunch with Martha, pretended to be tourists in our own city, drank bellinis at the airport, and spent our evening in the fine city of Denver with my childhood friends Heather and Jen. #weekendlikeyoumeanit #friendyear #lucky #love #ilovemyhusband

May 27, 2017 – Martha!!!! So much fun, so many dumb and hilarious memories. #lucky #love

May 26, 2016 – Raise and bonus!!!! I am thrilled and proud. #hardworkisgoodwork

April 27, 2016 – Multiple happy moments on a Wednesday — wuuhhht? A colleague greeted me with, “Good morning beautiful!” Then I took 15 minutes out of my day and cleaned up my desk at work. I felt refreshed. Got a couple of things knocked out that I needed to do. I finished up the day with an awesome workout and iced the sugar cookies I made on Sunday. They are so delicious (I ate half a cookie, okay, had to test the merchandise) that I was kind of shocked. #hardworkisgoodwork

April 26, 2016 – My husband is home! #lucky #love

April 15, 2016 – Two words: happy hour.

April 14, 2016 – My colleagues ordered in pizza and my favorite cake for a birthday lunch. It made me laugh when they protested my refusal to take part in the delicious junk food. They were impressed by my will power. But they ordered a veggie pizza just for me. So I ate a slice. And then I ate half of a bundtini (that’s a mini Bundt cake for those who don’t know) this afternoon. So it was delightful, well behaved and I felt loved. Score. #delicious #happy

April 11, 2016 – My boss told me my hair looked nice. :) #happy #goodhairday

April 10, 2016 – Back to the grind tomorrow. The weekend/vacation was amazing. Today mimosas and Irish coffee made me happy. But the best moment was the TSA agent who said, “Young lady, you’re next” — and I hesitated because I’m not sure if I’m still a young lady. He looked at my ID and said, “You’re barely past being a minor. We don’t want any unaccompanied minors running around here.” It was the funniest TSA interaction I have ever known. #lucky #love #backtothegrind

April 9, 2016 – My dear friend Bobby married the love of his life today. And we did our Bad Romance dance again. #epic #lucky #love #arenafoley

April 8, 2016 – Logged into work on my day off to catch up on email. My boss IM’ed me: “Turn off.” I acquiesced. #vacation

April 7, 2016 – One of my best friends, whom I’ve known since first grade, sent me a picture of a unicorn flying near a rainbow and a heart. It was the most awesome picture ever. My first grade self would have had a 24″ x 36″ poster of that on her bedroom wall. #lucky #love #friendship

April 6, 2016 – It was a good, busy day. It rained at lunch but my freshly washed car didn’t get dirty! #hardworkisgoodwork

April 5, 2016 – A colleague at work thanked me for my responsiveness. And I have sore legs from yesterday’s workout. I like knowing my work at the gym is paying off. #hardworkisgoodwork

April 4, 2016 – Wore a cute new dress to work. Each time I saw its flippy little skirt in the mirror, it made me smile. And I posted a picture of the cat lying on his favorite afghan to my aunt’s Facebook wall, because she made it for me as a wedding gift. I hope this made her smile. #prettythings #family #love

April 3, 2016 – I made two very delicious baked goods today – ooey gooey butter cake, and some huge cinnamon rolls. I was so proud! #delightfullittlebites #Sundaybest

April 2, 2016 – Saturdays are made of hundreds of happy moments. I mean, come on, it’s Saturday. Best day of the week: you can sleep in AND stay up late. Gym, favorite smoothie, errands, new headboard and bed skirt (this means we’re grown ups!) and the cheese on my salad melted just a tiny bit next to the veggie patty. Yes, it’s the little things. Time for Saturday night fun with friends. #lucky #love #workhardplayhard

April 1, 2016 – Had dinner with our neighbors. It’s only been four months since we moved in next door to each other. I predict many nights of wine, cars and Cards Against Humanity. Happy moment(s) indeed. #lucky #love

March 30, 2016 – Replacement phone secured and restore from backup completed. Yay! #lucky

March 29, 2016 – Home from vacation is always bittersweet. But we got our furkids from their respective kennels, and Batman is curled up next to me on the couch as I write. And when we walked into Catnip Inn, our favorite lady said, “You always look so cute! Cute as a button!” #lucky #love #family

March 28, 2016 – Today didn’t start off so well, as my iPhone was stolen. But any day on the slopes is a good one. And….mimosas! #lucky #love #abay #powpow #thelegend

March 27, 2016 – Ah A Bay, we meet again. Today, you gorgeous thing, you…you give me bluest skies, shining sun, and a run through the terrain park that was the best! Twelve inches of air! I am the best old skier ever. :) #lucky #love #abay #powpow #thelegend

March 26, 2016 – Can I say “ditto” from yesterday? Kind of? Today I think I set a personal best ski speed of 43.9 mph. This makes me happy. And I’m also happy to report that I handed off my phone to Sterling last night to read yesterday’s post, and he looked up at me and said, “You’re such a good writer.” My heart sings! #lucky #love #abay #powpow #thelegend

March 25, 2016 – A series of happy moments today, beginning with that 4:30 am alarm. I generally don’t like getting out of bed, but when the end goal is snapping my boots into skis, I’m happy to do it.

When we arrived in Denver, I discovered the Jeep we rented is so super cool, not to mention a standard shift. And THEN we stopped for lunch at Brothers BBQ to see our buddy Erik. Much happiness, and only 12 pm.

We sat through bumper to bumper traffic to arrive at the best place ever, aka A-Basin: The Legend. A quick change of clothes, and 11 hours from that alarm chime in the dark of early morning, I heard that sweet *click* into my Blizzards.

It was cloudy, snowy, with fresh powder, and only precious minutes left to run laps. And then, on the first run, with some new Coldplay in my ears, the sun came out to play. I hopped over a few piles of powder and giggled to myself.

It’s difficult to describe how I feel when I get on skis. The best thing I can come up with? I feel at home. And that…is good. #goodfriday #lucky #love

March 24, 2016 – Vacation begins!!!!! Headed to Denver at the crack of dawn. Or 7 am. Whatever. #skibunni #powpow

March 23, 2016 – Lunch date with my husband. Then after dinner, I ate a huge slice of my own cinnamon streusel coffee cake. I very rarely do that, and OMG was it worth every sugary, calorie-laden bite! #iworkoutsoicaneat

February 16, 2016 – A lot of happy moments today. Today I celebrate three years of marriage to a wonderful man. And I spent the day riding the mountain with him and one of our best friends. Life doesn’t get much better than this.

My husband is worthy of mad love for many, many reasons. He’s handsome, smart, funny, sweet, hard working. He takes care of me. He’s a true partner in our relationship. He makes me feel like I’m the only woman in the room. But the best thing about him? The reason I married him and am happy to go through this mad journey called life together? He lets me be me. Every day. Not only does he let me be me, he loves that version of me. Even when it’s not the best version. It’s only three years, but here’s to many more. #love #teamrobinson #grateful
