Friday Photos [2.27.15]

Here are some photos from Andy & my week:

Sunday hangin'. 

She's such a beggar.  And we're total suckers.

Seen in Casper, WY.

Time to take off these oppressive tights and blazer and take a nap!

So when you decide to buy a bottle of wine while traveling, remember to get twist-off top, otherwise you're the proud owner of a new wine opener. Which is actually how you acquired your last two wine bottle openers.

Sweet Andy bought me flowers <3 

Our lady.

Snowy Denver! But not enough snow to close work.

The glamorous life of an on the road Admissions Rep. Welcome to my office, parked in a high school parking lot in between appointments.

This & That and Altered Plans

This weekend turned into a hodge podge of plans and spur of the moment events, staying-in and going out. I was supposed to drive up to Wyoming for work Sunday, but a winter storm kept me obsessively checking road conditions. I ultimately decided to postpone my trip by a day when more of the ice had melted from the 280 miles I had to travel.

We had Shelly & Kevin over for dinner and drinks Friday night. And then some more drinks...

Rhett also came over and tucked himself into Ella's bed. By himself.

Ella was a bit sick over the weekend, and just wanted to snuggle and be pathetic, and really isn't that what we all want when we're sick?

We visited Our friend Ashley as she was pouring beer at Goldspot Brewing's grand opening.

Andy's starting a new glamor shots/senior photo coaching business ;o)

Happy birthday to our dear friend, Christine, shown here loving her Snoop Dog card. Which is even more hilarious after a few glasses of wine.

The gals celebrating Christine.

This also becomes more hilarious later in the night.

Snowy Sunday at Station 26.

FARKLE :o( :o(

So, yea, it was a really nice weekend. I was feeling really guilty about not making it up to Wyoming when I'd intended, but I felt soooo much more comfortable about driving on Monday, and feeling good and safe about my decision is way more important. Plus, I had an awesome Sunday with Andy, so that feels like an extra gift of time :o)

We went to the Wild Animal Sanctuary. 

Lazy wolves!

Afternoon lunch for Andy & me at Chipotle.

Thursday was hard...let's get some drinks ;o) 

Voodoo Doughnuts! That little doughnut guy in the middle is a voodoo doll and he comes with a pretzel stick so you can stab him.

Andy bought...a few.

Peanut butter and Oreo for breakfast YUM.

Fancy Night Out

Andy works for a company based in Milwaukee, WI and every year the owner, Bill, takes his employees out to a Christmas celebration dinner. Since Andy and I aren't able to make it back from Denver, CO for the dinner, Bill treats Andy and I to a dinner just the two of us in our city. Two weeks ago, we went to a new place called Block & Larder, opened by the same guys that own freshcraft, one of our favorite restaurants/craft beer bars. B&L is an up-scale dining/craft cocktail restaurant, so it was perfect for our fancy night out.


My dessert: Bartender's choice for a flight of dessert liqueurs.

It was pretty dark in the place, which helped set the mood, but did not help with my pictures! And looking back on the photos from the night, apparently we wanted to captured more of the delicious drinks we enjoyed than the delicious food! Oops :o) We were extremely pleased with the food, drinks, ambiance, service, and really the whole package.

Woah there's some flash!

Thanks, Bill, for a really special night out!

Friday Photos [2.13.15]

Here are some photos from Andy & my week:

Today is my sister Meg's birthday (hooray!!). I mailed her gift from Cheyenne yesterday, so it's going to be late (sorry, Meg!) but here is photo evidence of it, complete with a Dwayne Johnson The Rock wrapping :o)

I met a colleague for lunch at this excellent cafe in Laramie, WY Wednesday.

Textured walls in my hotel room.

Gigantic boot with beautiful paintings in downtown Cheyenne.

Cheyenne, WY is soooo windy.

Wandering the train depot.

Future site for the Cheyenne Children's Museum. Love all those colors!

It's hard to find water in CO and WY, so it's super exciting when I do.

The Spangler family at the brewery on Thursday. Rhett kept jumping up onto the picnic table bench...then on to the table.

Playing some Mexican Train at the Spanglers' house Thursday

And a bonus picture for you. Ella hates going to friend's houses and just finds a spot where she can lay down and see Andy and me to stare at us and will us to bring her home.

I guess my vest and scarf smelled good?
Happy Friday and happy weekend!
