Happy Friday! It feels good to put some words on a screen and share what’s been going on in the big city.
2. A couple weekends ago I took the plunge and went to Vegas. I went with the perfect group of ladies, however I was fighting a nasty cold so my energy levels were subpar. We stayed at the Cosmopolitan, were poolside for a full day (and only a small sunburn which is miraculous), went to an amazing rooftop bar and danced for hours, and met a ton of fun people!
3. Last weekend we hit up Denver and went to the Great American Beer Festival. What an unforgettable experience. Val and I got almost matching hats, we hiked Saint Mary’s Glacier, we sipped on hot cocoa with peppermint schnapps and accidentally fell asleep before 9 p.m. one night. If you haven’t been to the festival, add it to your bucket list!
4. I stumbled on a TED Talk by Mel Robbins and it’s a great dose of inspiration if you need. Or if you don’t. Just watch it.
5. If you’re free on Wednesday, October 18, come join us at The Iowa Taproom for a Sip + Shop event hosted by FemCity Des Moines. Get some early shopping done, take a peek and have conversations with some stellar business owners in our community, and drink some beer.
