Happy in New Pink Heels

Good Monday Morning!
I picked up these fun pink shoes over the weekend; I think the bright shade makes them a "fun" neutral for spring. 

Hope everyone has a great start to their week!

Life as of Now

With an upcoming move and busy work schedule - I've enjoyed taking this weekend to start my blog and enjoy a little down time!  As I sit writing this, my mom is quilting (actually making a new quilt for my bed, a surprise she unveiled to me today - pictures soon!) and I'm sitting at my laptop writing and enjoying a lovely glass of Cupcake Red Velvet wine.  It's a rainy weekend here in Minneapolis; perfect for crafting and staying cozy indoors. 

I'm starting to get quite excited for my upcoming move.  Being the planner that I am, I've started to make lists and a gameplan for the big day (June 1st.)  I've hired movers for the first time, which will no doubt prove to be wonderful (as I've basically moved once a year for the past 8 years (Yikes!) - so a nice change of pace for both my family and I.  :)  I'm moving to St. Louis Park, which (for those that don't know the area) is just about 3 miles outside of Minneapolis.  As I work downtown Minneapolis, St. Louis Park provides a nice balance between the convenince of the city and calm of the 'burbs.  And since I grew up in the suburbs of Minneapolis, I am quite familiar with the area.  I'm excited to post updates on the big move, with before and after pictures to boot!  It's my favorite spot in Minneapolis; I hunted this place down pretty early on, and am glad I did, as it boasts all of the amenities I was looking for in my new place.

One of my favorite things about my new place is the huge, open concept kitchen with walk-out patio.  I've recently gotten on the "power foods" train (due in large part to the film "Food Matters" - highly recommed!) and thus, have gotten re-energized about cooking and meal-making.  I will no doubt enjoy many a new recipe in the new kitchen - I promise to report back on all delectable recipes!  :)

What's your favorite way to spend a rainy Saturday evening?

The Beginning!

Welcome to Happy in Heels!

I'm beyond thrilled to begin my blogging journey, and am excited to see where this takes me!

The blog title "Happy in Heels" was devised by my dear college friends (many of whom have wonderful, creative and inspiring blogs themselves - more to follow on them soon!)  As we enjoyed our 2nd Annual SNC Girls' Weekend, I shared that I was looking to start a blog, due in large part to the fact that several of them have such fun blogs themselves, which I follow with regularity - and gave them the task of task of naming my blog.  So we sat, in typical fashion, with plenty of wine and delicious food before us, in a brain storming session of blog titles for your's truly.  After many laughs, honest vetos and lists of potential titles, Happy in Heels was thrown into the mix, and was the obvious choice and crowd pleaser, no doubt. 

So who am I?  And why Happy in Heels?

I'm a twenty-something living and working in Minneapolis.  I enjoy my spending time with my fabulous family and wonderful friends, working in a career I love, being inspired and in general continuing to enjoy life to the fullest.   I'm also a writer; all the more reason to begin my blogging career!

I believe it to be a fitting title for my blog; since a young age, I've been a girl all about the high heels.  When I step into a pair of heels, I feel ready for the day.  Be it a pair of boots with tights and a pencil skirt (la-ove boots, especially during the chilly MN winters!)  or a pair of pink stilletos with a little black dress, I'm all about the shoes with a bit of height.  They've always had a way of making me feel "put together" - and happy :) 

So on that note, Welcome to Happy in Heels - Here we go!
