The Return of the Blogger

Oh, man. Longest blog hiatus ever, right? HOW ARE YOU GUYS!? I’ve missed blogging so much, and I’m SO thrilled to say the days are currently less crazy, the NEW blog / site is up and running, and I have about 87,000 pictures to catch you up on now. ;)

First things first – huge shout out to my website-genius brother, Brad, who graciously set everything up for me while I danced and watched Curious George with my nephew. THREE CHEERS for Brad. And Henry. And Curious George.

Now do me a little favor – if you have a bookmark or a blog subscription, go ahead and update the web address. Absolutely Bositively is officially moving over to its own domain, so you can find me and the 87,000 photos over at www.absolutelybositively.com. This blog will remain exactly as it is now, but every post from here on out will be at the new site.

Thanks for bearing with me over the last few months of craziness! I really am so excited to get back to normal posting. I’m finally able to hang out with my dear old friend, free time. ;) Now come hang with me at the new site!

LOVE YOU ALL.

A Little Joy

Phew. This month, you guys. This YEAR. It feels like there have been an overwhelming amount of sad stories floating around lately, so I promise to only spread joyful, happy thoughts in this post! :)

One of these days, I’ll have something to blog other than just catching up on everything, but alas…the busy world continues for now. Bear with me, I’m getting closer to having free time. ;) Until then, here are some recent, happy happenings!

 june01

We celebrated my precious Mom-in-law’s birthday the best way…with pizza, of course. ;)

june02

And with Coldstone!

june03

I love all these cuties.

june04

And this one. ;)

june05

Henry continues to defend his title of world’s cutest child.

june06

For real.

june07

june08

He makes me laugh so much!

june09

We leisurely watched Curious George, and it was the best.

june10

Andrew and I have been trying to get our outside exercise in before it gets too hot, which it did…like, yesterday. We managed to bike around Lake Hefner last weekend while it was still nice and breezy!

june12

june13

We made sure we countered that exercise with some carbs, and we had a lovely brunch at Flint.

june14

Andrew was passionate about those pancakes, and I must admit that even this picture of my biscuits and potatoes is making me want to go back right this second.

june15

Last Saturday evening was perfectly spent – swimming with friends and puppies! This is my handsome dog nephew, Copper.

june19

I adore these yahoos. :)

june21

Sunday morning was our church’s “Dedication Sunday,” celebrating our new worship center. They asked me to photograph the event, and I admittedly got a little emotional during it. Haha. It was such a special day for our congregation!

june25

After carrying two cameras with two lenses and a bag of batteries around my neck for four hours straight, I told Andrew I required chips and queso. ;)

june17

A little PSA – I just found out that I’m officially out of media space on this blog. (bleh.) And since most of my posts are worthless without pictures, ;) I will obviously have to find a way to get more space. All that to say, bear with me if it’s another absurd amount of time between posts. I still have lots to catch up on and LOTS of summer fun coming…stay tuned. :) Happy weekend, loves!

Weekend in Colorado

I’m dreadfully behind posting about this trip, but I feel like I’m dreadfully behind with everything these days. I have close to 4,000 photos left to edit this month, at least 5 loads of laundry, 7 pounds to lose, and about 2 days worth of deep cleaning that I have yet to accomplish. Let’s pretend I’m not procrastinating right now as I sit here and blog, mmk? ;)

We continued our celebration of 5 years of marriage with a quick trip to Colorado Springs over Memorial Day weekend! It’s one of our favorite places, and our little getaway left us with full hearts. And stomachs.

CO-01

CO-02

It is imperative that you eat at Over Easy if you’re ever in the Colorado Springs area.

CO-03

Two of my favorite views: Pikes Peak and pancakes. ;)

CO-06

The hashbrowns were killer too.

CO-04

Every single time we visit, Garden of the Gods makes me wish I lived in Colorado.

CO-07

CO-08

CO-10

CO-09

CO-11

CO-12

Hiking is my happy place. (Not pictured – the fudge from the Trading Post. You need it in your life.)

CO-13

We headed to my other happy place, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, in the afternoon.

CO-14

Walking around the zoo doubles as a workout because it’s literally built into a mountain.

CO-22

CO-24

Andrew rocked the anniversary gifting and booked a surprise behind-the-scenes tiger encounter for us! I was THRILLED when we got to meet this beauty. His name is Ivan. :)

CO-15

CO-16

I hate selfies, but tiger selfies are an exception.

CO-17

He reminded me so much of Jack. ;)

CO-18

We fed him meatballs. Haha.

CO-27

CO-28

So. Handsome.

CO-29

It rained and hailed for about 15 minutes and I was bummed when I thought we wouldn’t get to feed the giraffes (the best part about that zoo), but we were super excited when we found out you could feed them inside the barn!

CO-30

CO-31

Pretty sure I was getting looks from laughing really loudly. They crack me up.

CO-32

CO-33

This baby lion was such a cutie.

CO-34

CO-35

CO-36

It’s safe to say most of our trips revolve around food. We wrapped up the day with dinner at Savelli’s!

CO-20

CO-21

Funny story – we ran into two of my sweet friends from high school on their own little getaway!

CO-19

My husband loves me so much. He humored me for an hour of crazy picture-taking in the mountains – dodging the rain, illegally parking, and wrangling a giant “5” balloon. Haha. HE IS THE BEST. ;)

CO-37

CO-38

CO-39

CO-41

It’s still hard to believe I’ve had this handsome man for 5 years. :)

I’ve got lots more to catch up on here, but I’ll save it for another post. :) Happy Monday, friends!
