That's all she wrote

Very short and quick post today folks, busy busy as usual. However, I would just like to say how excited I am to watch those crazy Sooner football players take on the Corn Huskers in this weekend's BCS championship game! Bring it on! Just a sidenote...I actually had to flip back and forth from the game on Saturday against OSU, it was waaay too intense for my liking. I thought I was going to have to pop a few Xanax, hahaha.

Hopefully you all got you your fill of yummy food and great family memories! Just a few more weeks till Christmas, I can hardly wait!

Pretty much I have just been trying to keep my head above water, busy busy busy bee!! I love to be busy and function much better when I have a million things on my plate, but this may have put me over the edge. Work has been INSANE!!! I do actually enjoy what I do for the most part but we are so far behind on a lot of things and have received so much activity this year that it is darn near impossible to keep up. Anyway, enough complaining!
I have to tell you about my awesome trip up to Breckenridge this last weekend. The weekend before last W, Mr. Man, my friend H, and myself all piled into the car at quarter after six for a fabulous day of skiing. Considering it is still early season (like really really early season) the snow was AWESOME!! We all had a great time and we left a little early to miss the ski traffic, so I was still able to get in an epic nap on the couch! For real is there anything better??

Now onto the good stuff. This past weekend was busy busy as usual. Friday night we went to go see one of the infamous Warren Miller films at a huge theatre here in Denver. Needless to say we were pretty pumped to hit the trails on Saturday and see what we could do! After some yummy mexican food at our fav local spot, D'Corazon, we headed home and called it an early night so we would be well rested for our weekend activities. Saturday we went to Breckenridge and again and skiied like there was no tomorrow. The weather was absoloutely gorgeous, think Spring skiing, and the snow was heavenly! Mr. Man surprised me with a great hotel stay for the evening so we coudl get up on Sunday and ski some more before calling it a day. I tell you I am a lucky girl ;) We enjoyed a fabulous steak and lobster dinner and walked up and down main street until we couldn't keep our eyes open any longer. It is weekends like this when I am truly grateful for being given the good fortune of living next to the great Rocky Mountains. I am looking forward to many more weekends like this last one and also perfecting my skiing skills! :) Happy Turkey week everyone and hopefully you all had great weekends as well!!

Friday Fun

This weekend my friend will be celebrating her glamorous 30th birthday filled with good friends, laughter, a limo, and who could forget the yummy cake!!! Can't wait. Also, tomorrow we are heading up for our first official ski day. Pay no mind to the fact that it is going to be 75 degrees here in Denver tomorrow, I honestly think mother nature forgot its September. Tonight is going to be nice and relaxing. Maybe a movie, maybe some wine, things might get crazy, haah, just kidding.
Here is just a little preview of the fun we had on Halloween last weekend, enjoy! Happy Friday everyone!!!

Gus, the Ostrich, needed a little lovin'
All three of us ready to go!

Yes you guessed it, I was nem-ho for Halloween. Let's not mistake ourselves here though, have no fear that I was about the least scantily dressed lady in the bar that evening. I doctored the costume up with a tank and a cardigan as well as some tights, so there was no 'ho' in this girls outfit. Halloween was an absoloute blast though. Mr. Man was one of an ostrich jockey, it was one of those big blow up costumes and let me just say...HYSTERICAL!! His outfit was so much fun. He had a big beak and he kept walking up to complete strangers and sticking the ostrich beak into the patrons beer/drink cups. It made for a very fun night! This is going to be a short little post but I will be back tomorrow with some picture udpates!! Happy hump day everyone!
