Red Rocks Amphitheater

Kellen found out he had a mandatory day off- after the holidays were we went hiking and made a stop at Red Rocks Amphitheater. Beautiful 45-50 degree, middle of the winter day here in Colorado. Yes, I am enjoying rubbing in how amazing the weather has been here. We have had about 5-6 inches of snow a few times, but it melts so fast (they aren't lying about that out here!). None of that yucky brown stuff lining the sides of the roads. At least not for long, anyhow. Don't worry Michigan- your winters are missed. In a weird, I wish I was still in school type of convoluted way.

Pretending we belong here...

A lot of native Coloradans have a bumper sticker that says "Native" on it. Kellen found one that worked for us...

We found the sticker in Bolder, the town that has convinced me to become a hippie. Minus getting high. (Really felt like I had to put that disclaimer in there...). Bolder is really cute though, kind of like Ann Arbor in a way. Made me miss home! The afternoon in Bolder was spent after exploring the Celestial Seasonings Tea Factory. We forgot our camera, so no pictures of that. It was delightful though, I drank so much free tea- and then couldn't fall asleep for days. 

My husband works hard at his job...

Yes, yes he does. Actually he was a part of the committee that brought recycling to Saint Anthony North- the "Green Team" if you will.  It is all in honor of his birthday- which happens to be Earth Day!

DU wins! We get free Qudoba!

We had a good time at the DU double header basketball games. The women's game was close, but not as close as the men's game- it was exciting down to the last second.


The score was 59-57, DU winning with 4 seconds to go. We were hoping they'd win- and reach 60 points. 60 points meant: Free Qudoba.

Delicious, mouthwatering Qudoba. with 4 seconds left a DU player got fouled and BAM, two free throw shots. The first one went in and there was a mad dash to get the Qudoba tickets, because apparently there were very limited quantities. No worries though, we were inching our way out and secured our tickets.

The verdict? Amazing.

 (Can you tell I love Qudoba?)

Smiley Potato

Kellen is very proud to have found this in our bag of potatoes...

It was a pretty delicious potato too. :)

Happy New Year!

I think my tailbone has finally healed from snowboarding. I was already to go back out this weekend, but then we got dumped on with some nasty weather. I was beginning to think Denver didn't get snow! (I live in a fantasy world, I know!) We got about 5", so not a ton, but it got cold out- high of 9 degrees yesterday (Just like on Kellen and my wedding day!) and it was bone chilling.  The cold weather hurt just standing outside, so the snowboarding adventure was put on hold for now!
