Did you even know I was gone? I was in Colorado, yo!
I had a work conference, but took my boys with me to play.
Through the week, we stayed at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs. Absolutely gorgeous. This is the view from our room.
We lucked out with the weather and on the first day took Jr to one of my favorite spots on the planet – Garden of the Gods.
The next day was a full day of work for me, but D took Jr to the zoo.
That night we swam. (BELLEH!!!)
On Friday, I was done by noon and this is the sight that greeted me when I got back to the room.
Let’s zoom in.
After that, we headed straight for the mountains, where my family has a cozy cabin they are nice enough to let us stay in.
It’s on a creek.
With a bridge.
And we had a great time.
On the drive home, one of us (not me) had the brilliant idea of hosting Thanksgiving. In 10 days. I currently have one dining room chair. And I’ve never made a turkey. BUT, it’s the first big holiday in the new house, and all the family that is coming is bringing something delicious, plus D informed me he’ll be in charge of the turkey. He was looking up recipes last night, the likes of which induced curse words about how amazing this turkey is going to be. Apparently we are in for a real treat!
And now I’m off to find some tablescape inspiration. (Have you ever watched Sweet Genius? I cannot say “inspiration” without hearing him… “inspeeeeraaatiun”.)
