I feel like this blog is turning into a travel journal. Not sure how that happened but I guess it has to do with the fact that I'm always going-going-gone. DH and I had a great time spending my birthday in Denver. Not quite as nice as it would have been to be at home, but a very close second. We even saw Pauly Shore while we were in town. Seems like a really cool guy, and duh, super funny too.
After Denver I jetted off to Seattle. Again. And it's not my last time here. I finally got to see the mountain (isn't it actually a volcano?) Ranier. It's so breathtaking.
Wouldn't it be cool to look at that everyday?
I was also told that I *had* to check out the famous Pike's Market in downtown Seattle while I was here and had some free time. It's this really cool indoor/outdoor market that sells everything. Literally everything: fresh produce, fish (obvs), handmade stuff and total random junk and food. It's unlike anything I've seen before.
Hey.. Didn't I see that guy on Worlds Deadliest Catch..?
Now I'm off to spend some down time at home (parent's home) in Kansas City for Thanksgiving.
Should be a real treat!

I finally dumped pics off of my camera and realized I forgot to post pics of us carving punkins at Halloween...
We brought out the big knives for this job.
Then, DH got out the electric drill (any excuse to use a power tool).
The big ta-daa

Today we drove 100 miles to Vail, CO. It's a little ski town, but it was pretty much dead because it ain't ski season yet. We were okay with that. It was super low key.
Last night, DH ordered me a cake (Red Velvet: my fav)

I'm sooo quarter century now! Woot! 25! I'm in Denver for work but I've already done all my work and now I'm just waiting for my Hubster to arrive so we can paint the town red. When I flew in yesterday it was warm and sunny here but I woke up this morning to SNOW. Lots of it! Big white puffy flakes everywhere. Now that's a great birthday surprise.
Two things to note about the above pic:
(1) I left so early in the morning it was dark. I'm that dedicated. *wink*
(2) My freaking rental car in Colorado has Oklahoma plates on it. Bizarre.
I did my worky stuffs and then came back to the hotel and look what was waiting for me. The most gorg bunch of flowers I've laid my sights on in a long while. From my BFF!! I'm one lucky 25 year old :)
Now I'm off to cook up some adventures for a great weekend in Denver. I'll keep 'ya posted!

Now I'm back from a week long trip. I was literally bicoastal, going from Seattle to North Carolina. Both states I've never visited before (Gawd, I love my job!) and both absolutely stunning.
It was too cloudy in Seattle to see "the mountain", which is what they call Ranier but I still saw other mountains and the gorgeous trees. And, true to form it rained. The. Entire. Time. Well, until we boarded the plan. Then it stopped.
North Carolina was warm (almost 80 degrees!!) and the people are supa-dupa friendly. I also saw a cotton plantation. Who knew those existed outside of Georgia? Cotton plants actually look like white flowers from far away.
DH picked me up from the airport and told me he had a surprise at home for me because it was officially 1 week before my birthday. We grabbed lunch and when we got home he told me he had hidden little presents all over our living room: "like Easter". So fun! Check it out:
"I Love You Cherry Much" t-shirt...
Something to exercise my mind...
A "construction zone" for my desk at work ;-)...
Homemade doggie treat kit...
... and more stuff I'm probably forgetting.
We also have a new obsession. We've been reading the book Twilight before bed. Together. Yep, just like old people. Sooo good!
