Ebbs and Flows

Marketing departments are full of "ebbs and flows." We are in a major ebb. As in I'm running out on the dry beach to see where the heck all the water went. And I accidentally came to work today with an iPhone at 80% battery. This is going to be a long day.

A Funny Story

 This is how you wear your hair the morning after you wake up wide awake but still pretty out of it. You get in the shower and can barely stay awake. You start to wonder if you are running late or right on time. Did you even look at the time before you got in the shower? You get out and notice its a little bit darker that usual outside. You check the time on your phone. Its 2:30am.
Yep, that happened.
And I laughed to myself in the dark at 2:30am and put a towel on my pillow (I wasn't about to dry my hair) and went back to sleep for a 4 hour nap. I must need my husband home.
This is how you look when you've made it through work, a rainstorm and an unusually cold day.
Good. Night.

Girl's Weekend

This past weekend my mom and Chris's mom came out to visit me for a fun girl's weekend!
On Saturday we hit up the Cherry Creek farmers market voted best in Colorado! There was amazing produce, local food trucks, ethnic food stands and plenty of local treats. I can't believe I haven't been all summer. Luckily it goes through October. I'll be back Cherry Creek!
Mom the Southern Peach with a delicious plate full of Colorado peaches- right from Chris's hometown. I hate to say it but the Colorado peaches are the best by far. Also, who knew that edamame beans grew like that?!
Mom and Marlys with an alien plant also known as Kohlrabi.
The market!
Dinner plate sized sweet rolls and a waffle cakes stand. I have to try these when I go back. They looked amazing!
After the market we hurried over to one of my favorite cupcake places, Big Fat Cupcake.
Then came the main event! Les Miserables!! I have been wanting to see this play for forever and finally it worked out to go. I LOVED it. It definitely lived up to my expectations and the cast was fabulous.
After the play we headed home for some burgers and BYU football. Thats where Chris was this weekend! He went down to Texas to stay with a friend he made while working with the Astros and had a great time in Austin even though we lost.
We had so much fun over the weekend chatting, snacking, laughing and just hanging out. Thanks for such a fun time ladies!! Let's do it again soon!!

Happy Birthday to my sweet husband! He is 26 today and in California so we had a fake birthday celebration yesterday. Complete with real presents, real cake and real golf.
Traditional carrot cake from Chris's aunt and traditional banana breakfast numbers from my mom.
Birthday golf!
Lost ball blues.
I'm a pretty good caddy. If I do say so myself.
Happy 26 Babe! I love you!


Our Anniversary sign! And apple cinnamon strudel waffles. YUM.
Pre-season Broncos game against the Seahawks. Thanks Jim and Marlys!
The best text convo ever. Chris got to come home last Tuesday and spend the week at home! We had great fun.
Friday Night Lights. Grand Junction High School (Chris's Alma Mater) was in town to play the Highland's Ranch falcons. The Tigers won by a landslide.
Brandon was in town visiting over this past weekend and the boys enjoyed a lot of golf and football. Like a LOT. haha Go BYU!!
