Hello from Dever!!

Greetings from Colorado ladies!!

I flew into Denver Saturday evening and my dear brother picked me up in a pick up truck from his work. Did I mention it was bright orange? Yep. And that I thought the door was going to fall off from the noise it made when I closed it? Or that my seat didn't lock into position so that when we would brake...I would go flying into the dashboard? Hm. This trip should be interesting.

We proceeded to go into his work for some last minute things he had to do for a wrestling tournament in the morning. Mook is the equipment manager for the University of Northern Colorado so it was cool to see where he spends his days and all of the sports he is in charge of. Here is me...taking full advantage of my time behind the scenes:

Please forgive the fact that I had been on a plane for 5 hours...and had to squeeze myself into a small jersey so tight that it almost didn't fit over my boobs. But it was my it was a must.

I crashed pretty quickly when we got home and woke up for an early run on Sunday. Did you know there was snow here? Yeah. It's pretty cold. But it is always sunny which I love :) After getting ready, we headed to Golden, CO to visit the Coors Factory! What a great day! Free beer tastings and old friends...loved it.

Brother...posing :)

Hello! I work in quality control! I am so in the wrong field. Beer>Aerospace any day!

Baby free samples...but our three later=full size baby!

I tried the Blue Moon, Winterfest, and Full Moon. I think Full Moon was my fave. Winterfest was a little too bitter for this light girl :)

We had lunch in Golden and then headed out to Red Rocks. What beautiful views! And such a fantastic place to see a show, I'm sure.

And then from the bottom. Yeah. I climbed down those steps. And then back up. Not. cool. people.

We concluded our night with a steak and potatoes dinner made just for me by my little bro. How sweet is that? And the best thing was that it was delicious...seriously so good :) And I would like to give a little shout out and thanks to my sister who sent him "autumn mix" last week. The candy corn pumpkins were also delicious.

He even put a little candle on the table for sweet :)

I'm not sure what our plans are for today yet...but I've already worked out and now I am sitting here catching up on blogs and watching TV while my brother is at work. If this is all I do, I will be a happy girl.
