moving again…

Posted in Uncategorized on July 23, 2008 by erin

okay, it’s time i shared my secret.  although i don’t think it’s much of a secret any more.  i moved-been there for a while.  yes, again!  to commemerate my new home with a new blog ( i know, i know you all probably hate me for this and really you don’t have to follow me) but i can’t deal with wordpress any more, no flexibility in the themes, couldn’t change colors or text size or font and placing photos was really difficult. i found i really missed blogger. someday i would love to have a custom blog that really shouts me! but until i’m willing to cough up the dough for that i will be using a free service, thank goodness for blogger.  there you have it from the horses mouth and i swear this won’t happen again.  please follow me and my follies. www.followmyfolly.blogspot.com

Colorado

I’ve been at a loss for interesting topics to write about. Maybe because it’s always sunny here so the outdoors call my name or maybe because this move is consuming my brain and my creativity (probably this option).  In either case I found some interesting tidbits about my home state.  If you’ve ever lived in CO you will know what I’m talkin’ about.

When the weather report says it’s going to be 65 degrees, you shave your legs and wear a skirt.-for me at least 70!

It snows 5 inches and you don’t expect school to be cancelled.-more like 10 inches!

You have no accent at all, but can hear other people’s accents – and then you make fun of them.-I’m ashamed to say this is true 🙂

‘Humid’ is over 25%.-not a fan of humidity

Your sense of direction is: ‘Toward the mountains’ and ‘Away from the mountains’.-so true

You think that May is a totally normal month for a blizzard.

You grew up planning your Halloween costumes around your coat.

You know what the Continental Divide is.

You don’t think Coors beer is that big of a deal.-not a fave of mine-but we all know what my favorite beer is….any thing from New Belgium-yum!

You’ve gone off-roading in a vehicle that was never intended for such activities.

You always know the elevation of where you are.

You wake up to a beautiful, 80 degree day and you wonder if it’s going to snow tomorrow.

You don’t care that some company renamed it, the Broncos still play at Mile High

Every movie theater has military and student discounts.

Everybody wears jeans to church.-what’s wrong with wearing jeans to church??

You actually know that South Park is a real place not just a show on Comedy Central.-bee-a-u-ti-ful!

You know what a “Trust Fund Hippy” is, and you know their natural habitat is “The Republic of Boulder”.-don’t trust a hippy!  just kiddin’

You know you’re talking to a fellow Coloradoan when they call it Elitches, not Six Flags.-good ole Elitches.

When people out East tell you they have mountains in their state too, you just laugh.-right on sista’, I would think it’s hard to beat 53 peaks at 14,000 ft.!

You go anywhere else on the planet and the air feels ‘sticky’ and you notice the sky is no longer blue.-so true, never moving from this state!

PS.  I “stole” this from this blogging mama –milehighmama.

Intersted in playing?  Check out flutter’s site for instructions.   Most of these are related to traveling and serenity in which a person (me) craves now and always.  Pink, strawberries and chocolate, strong and hunky men, chosing hope over fear, honesty, family, yoga, Dubai and Italy, bikes and beer.  Really what more could a person want?

Hello world!

It’s me.  I’m different.  I needed a change, you know, change is a woman’s prerogative.  I think change is how I survive.  I like new and different and keeping things fresh so here’s my new home.  Oh, and “follow your folly”, well I stole it from Fat Tire Brewery, but to me it means follow what you love what ever that may be.  Follow your passion.  Follow your hearts desire. Because to others it might be tomfoolery but to you it’s a dream that should not go to waste.

The Big Adventure

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on March 18, 2008 by erin

Like the title says engaging in risky, dangerous and uncertain experiences and living to blog about it. I’m nervous, my palms are sweaty and my heart is beating a thousand miles an hour. It might be the 12 cups of coffee I just drank and the fact that I didn’t sleep well or it could be our trip is RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER. Yikes! I’m so nervous but excited too. I just realized we will be in Paris on our 7 year anniversary. How romantic.

I will miss all my blogging buddies. Forgive my blog for going dormant for a while and forgive me for not commenting on all your fabulous blogs. We usually scout out some internet cafés while overseas and we might have a computer in the places we are staying so I will post some traveling updates and maybe even get a chance to read your blog. I will be back soon to enlighten you about sports or bikes and other silly but yet VERY necessary stuff. Bon Voyage!
