Postponing everything to work and play outside

loving... This spring weather. I'm going to brag a lot and say we've been having pretty amazing weather here lately. In fact, yesterday it snowed most of the day and decided to go sledding in decent temperatures. While today, the snow has disappeared in town and I'm wearing a t-shirt, soaking up the sun. Our temperatures are supposed to get up into the fifties by this weekend. I'm not gonna lie, I've been pretty over this fridged weather for a long time now, so I'm in a pretty happy place right now. I've been working out in the yard during every nice day we've had so far and I still have a long way to go, but I'm really happy with how much I've dug up, broken down, pulled, raked, shoveled, and trimmed!

Thinking about…  So many things at once! But I'll just choose one topic for now. One of my favorite childhood friends is headed off to New Zealand for quite a while, and I had to say good-bye to her last night. It's always so sad to see someone you love leave, but I'm SO HAPPY for her that she gets to go experience something so cool! I can't wait for her to come back with all her cool stories to share!

Watching... I found the Friends seasons three for the price of one. So I've been watching them a little every evening. It's my guilty pleasure show for sure.

Wishing... That Fruits and Vegetables were just plain.. well fruits and vegetables. I'm so tired of hearing about all these bad things we do to them. A normal, organic, Non-genetically altered food has to be labeled with all this information just to tell you it's a normal plant that was never messed with. I know it's all more "efficient" to change them, but really, I'm ready to just buy a food and it be just plainly a normal whole food.

Listening to… Liam Finn

eating... Roasted beets, cucumbers, spinach, and my homemade mustered/balsamic dressing... Tastes so much better than it sounds.

Our Weekend(on a Wednesday)

This last Saturday was one of our friends weddings, and it was a BEAUTIFUL one. Also, one of the cutest couples ever! I'm so excited for them. My SIL Danelle and her two(my niece and nephew) were also in the wedding!

The next day, as we all know, was Super bowl Sunday. We have an annual tradition to spend all afternoon in Ouray, Colorado hot springs pool and then stuff ourselves at one of the best pizza places afterwards for dinner. We always make a point to visit the hot springs fish too and this time Everett was able to feed them a little bag of fish food as well.

I really thought, for some reason, that I'd have a pretty nice long break after Christmas, but I'm always wrong. Not complaining or anything, it's pretty nice to be keeping so busy, so now I'm trying to catch up on what's been happening lately. Our weekend was very eventful, and hopefully I'll get to our weekend post soon, but here's a little taste of what's been going on lately.

Mustache Monday, painting an Airplane
Starship Romance and friends. If you'd like to see the kinda cruddy video I took some short shots of each band with my phone check it out here. (if you watch it, can you spot green man?)

Playing drums and guitar at the same time, finding artsy drum heads the next morning
