Why I can’t hate you...

I had a completely different idea that I wanted to do for this week’s blog but life sometimes dumps a bunch of shit on you and plans change. I have not given up my idea because it is fantastic but it will have to wait and you will just have to come back and see what it is.

Had I known that last week when I was writing my post about being fabulous, that my life as I knew was crumbling, I probably wouldn’t have chosen that particular topic. It does make me really stop to think that the universe does know what it is doing because it was that post that gave me the strength to get through this week.

When I decided to relaunch my blog I wanted to go in several directions. I wanted to do weight loss, fashion, glamping - all sorts of random topics. Originally this blog was my weight loss "diary" of sorts and it served me for the time. I now realize that I need more in my life. I need to work on the inside so that the outside can follow. I want to make my life as fantastic and as fabulous as I can. Even living in hayseed Colorado.

When I think of a fabulous woman, I envision a skinny blonde with perfect skin, red lips, high heels, body dripping with exquisite jewels and she is drinking champagne and if this were 1985 she would probably be smoking a long skinny cigarette too.

I felt like a kid again!

I grew up and live in Southwest Colorado and we are pretty isolated. The closest big city is about a 4 hour drive and that is to Albuquerque, NM. Not the most glamorous or exciting places on earth but if you want to shop somewhere other than Walmart or go to Trader Joe's this is the place we drive to a couple times a year.

Every October the news is filled with stories and pictures of the Balloon Fiesta and it was always something I wanted to see but never really made the time to go. This year we decided to make the trek down there and I have to say that I am really sorry that I never went before now. It was one of the most magical experiences in my life.
