January hike

I love that in Colorado, we can head outdoors and not freeze to death. Don't get me wrong, it gets cold and snowy... But we have so many days of sunshine that those cold, snowy, cloudy, rainy days are more manageable. 
So, this past weekend, Anne, MM and I headed up to Lair 'o the Bear for some hiking. It was lovely!! The weather started cool but ended up being perfect hiking weather! Onto the eye candy...

Bringing in 2014...already past events and ones to come!

Its already more than halfway into the first month of 2014, and I have not done a great job of keeping up with blogging.  This year will (hopefully) be a fun filled and eventful year.

New Year's Eve was the most relaxing, laid back night I have had in a long time. Jay and I made dinner and boozy adult milkshakes, rented a couple of movies and curled up on the couch with our fuzzy children for a quiet night in.
It was lovely!

Jay and I also attended our first (of many?) Mammoth game of the season.  If you're a Denver-ite (or live in the vicinity) and haven't been to the indoor lacrosse games of the Mammoth... you're missing out. The games are like a giant party... and its easy to follow! If you know anything about hockey or soccer, or even a bit of basketball... indoor lacrosse would make sense! When Jay and I went it was Star Wars night... highly entertaining

I also just celebrated a birthday. Yes, really. I turned 30. Eeek! It was really not a big deal, but man that number just seems sooo.... old? mature? I don't really know. I know I don't feel much different, but I do have to remember that I am no longer in my 20s.  Luckily, I have a few other friends turning 30 this month as well... one of which is my lovely, beautiful friend Julie.  She is literally 2 weeks and a day younger than me. So... we decided to throw ourselves a Roaring 20's Thirtieth Birthday party. Flapper dresses and dapper suits required.  It ended up being a fantastic night!

So... what will the rest of this year hold? Wedding planning, outdoor adventures, time with friends and family and... Marrying the wonderful, amazing man in my life. And that will indeed be the best adventure to have.

Christmas time!

The holidays have come and gone. I feel like they went by much faster than usual! However brief, they were nice. Andy came home to visit...and I got a lovely Kitchen Aid stand mixer!! It's a baker's dream!
