Farewell to Stacey

This past Saturday night, Courtnay and I threw Stacey a going away party. It was mostly our Irish dance family, but we had a couple extra guests as well. It was fun, food filled and emotional. I didn't take a lot of pictures (none actually) so I have created a photo montage from over the years.

I can't believe that its been almost 7 years of knowing, dancing and spending time with Stacey.  She has become part of the family! And I will miss her soo much. Jay and I are already talking about a trip to the land of Oz, and Stacey will be (she'd better be, at least!) returning to Denver for my wedding and her friend Jenny's wedding in October.

Stacey Betty, dance will never be the same without you as my figures partner, my dance buddy, girl time in the car and so much more. Good luck on your newest, most exciting adventure yet. I love you!

Girl's Weekend

A couple of weekends ago - I spent the weekend with Heather and Mary Margaret up in Breck.  It was lovely! And random. And fun...

Enjoy the little things

Its been a while since I posted last, but not because I haven't been busy and enjoying the spring/winter bipolar Colorado weather. Or spending time with friends. Or dancing.  Because I am!  However, when I think of blogging, sometimes I look back on my day or my weekend and think, "well that's not exciting enough to blog about".  When in reality, those little things are what I should be blogging about!

So with that in mind, I will try to be better about blogging about the little things. Life is about enjoying the little things!

Speaking of... already this spring, I have been able to go hiking! A little brisk and cool, but so lovely!

Wedding planning is still continuing... I haven't done a whole lot lately, but checking out food options, hair ideas and all the little things that come with weddings.

If you didn't already know, Jay and I have had a roommate for that last month or so (and will until the beginning of May), Miss Stacey!  She's moving to Australia soon, so luckily our guestroom has become her transitional space as she slowly but surely gets rid of more and more stuff. I love having her stay with us!  It will make her leaving THAT MUCH HARDER.  Especially since Monday nights have become "girl's nights" again! We used to have them when I lived alone on Tuesdays... dinner and tv and gossip! Last Monday we tried out a new recipe!  Check it out on Stacey's blog.

On that note... I will try to stay more updated! Fingers crossed :)

Big Cat

Gus, one of our cats, thinks he's the man of the house. I have overheard Jay arguing with him over this point a couple of times (yes - its as hilarious as it sounds). But... an example of Gus' self-centerness? He likes to hang with the Big Cats.

And sit at the table like one of his humans.
