I was downtown on Saturday celebrating one of my bestie’s daughter’s upcoming wedding.
Sue and I used to work at Tnemec together when I first moved here to Colorado. Jenna picked a “wine tasting & tour” for her bridal shower.
This place was so cool. The building is original other than the roof, love the brick and garage door that opens to the exterior and lovvvve the chandeliers.
Yummmmm . . .

This year’s contest was “Soup” and we had a wonderful variety of yummy ones!
Everyone had a chance to fill their bowls and place a “vote”! Everybody got to be a judge.
And this little angel face is actually eating the “Winner”!! Tara and the Benson family made homemade Tomato Bisque soup and Tara had made grilled cheese sandwiches that she cut into bite size croutons!!!! YUMOLA!! Congrats Bensons!
More to come . . . .
I am sooo blessed in my life to have several besties!! This lady I’ve know since High School, we were actually roommates twice in our young lives. Terri & her family live in Idaho and she was on her way to Napa, California (where we’re both from) and she had a “lay over” at DIA!!! I happened to take Friday off, forgetting that’s when she was coming through! So excited to see this sweet and very familiar face, even if it was a short visit!! Love you Terri!!
A great day was had by all! A little cold in the morning but really warmed up later in the afternoon.
Ellie’s first trip to the Zoo!
Family! That look on Ellie’s face . . . lol . . . !!
Wooden tokens for the carousel.
Not impressed, lol. We were more excited than she was.
This girl . . . she’s getting too big!! Sitting up so straight – she was actually waving to all her fans. LOL
Belley and I had a few days together last week while mom and dad had a little get-away. We were going to meet Amie, Ellie and some friends at the zoo so we made up some trail mix for a snack. Annie’s Snicker Doodle Bunnies (delicious & from Target), mini-marshmallows, raisins, Easter colored M&M’s and some Pink Princess Goldfish.
And if you’re making Bunnie Trailmix for your friends, you must have cute Bunny Snack Bags!
We have a very special volunteer that comes into the office every Thursday to help out. EVERY Thursday we all wait with anticipation of “I wonder what Mary is going to bring”? EVERY Thursday she brings in a special homemade treat for us!!!! EVERY Thursday!!!! One of her specialties is making brownies with all different kinds of toppings or candy inserted in the mix. Today is brownies with a layer of peanut butter, caramel, chocolate and peanuts!!!! Let me just say, it’s as goooooddddd as it looks!! Thank you Mary!!
There’s a new store in town . . . Crumble Cookies!!! I stopped by there last night after having dinner with one of my girlfriends. She’d been telling me about them at dinner so I was hoping to make it there before they closed . . . they close at MIDNIGHT!!! ANDDDDDD they deliver!!!! ANDDDDDD they are crazy good!
I bought the “Party Box” to take some in to work today for a Valentine treat.
The “Party Box” is $25.50 for 12 cookies (just over $2 a cookie). If you buy them singularly they’re $3 a cookie. And let me just say – worth every penny! LOL
They’re located around 144th – east side of I-25 next to “Your Pie” . . . but who cares where they are . . . they’ll deliver to you!!!
