Hello blog readers! I really don't have any exciting, insulation on the top of the car, throwing toilet away, being locked in a bathroom type stories to share today, so instead I will share some things on my mind. Sorry if this is boring. But ya know, sometimes its good to make a list of what is on your mind. I like lists.

*My dogs are annoying me right now. The older one has forgotten how to be potty trained. The younger one follows the older one. It is insanely frustrating. Who would like a shih-tzu/bichon? Two for the price of one. jk.

*My best friend Stacy (mother of adorable Hank) got a new job and has a week in between her old and new one. She wanted to get out of town. I wanted to get out of town. So we're going to Denver next week. We've never been. Anyone have suggestions of what to do in Denver?

*Yes, I am sick of the awful weather in Minnesota, but more than that, I am sick of the awful weather being the only conversation topic amongst people. If I hear, "Wow, it sure is cold outside" or "Gee, it's really coming down out there" one more time.....  I feel like I should just start singing 'Singin' in the Rain' and dance in the street to throw people off.

*There's a little part of me that wants to get up at 4am and watch the royal wedding. And there's a big part of me that doesn't really care. But I know I'll watch it. On DVR. Over the weekend. At a reasonable hour. Wearing a hat. Really I just want to wear a hat.

*Our yard is a gigundo mess. I need to take pictures and post them. I will do a before and after series on my lawn. It's comical. The dogs walk outside to do their business (which we all know they don't do outside anyways due to the first bullet point) and sink into the muck. We have no grass, and due construction and burying power lines in our back yard, it looks a bit like the tectonic plates have shifted. This one is going to get it's own blog post.

Okay, that's all for now. Please send me any Denver recommendations you have!

Oooh love Denver! I would recommend this place called Lucille's for brunch, going to Golden to do hike and/or the Coors brewery tour, and if you are up for a bit more of an adventure, go to Boulder...LOVE LOVE Boulder! Great street called Pearl St. with lots of shops and awesome places to eat. Enjoy ladies!

I was born in Denver!!! Go to a Rockies game---I love Coors Field. Otherwise, the Coors brewery tour is really fun. And there's tons of great restaurants...I love Crocs--great Mexican! :)

oh and if you want really good Greek food, you could just stop by my grandma & grandpas!

I'd tell you to visit the hospital I was born in, but it's now a parking lot in the ghetto.

I've been to Denver twice and can't remember a thing....weird, maybe it's the altitude...

Drink lots of water and don't push yourself too hard when you exercise. A certain someone, whom we both know and love, fainted there there thanks to the altitude... but then again, that someone has been known to faint in MANY places ;-)

If you really find yourself at your wits end with the poochies Bark Busters were amazing! I would highly recommend them for re-training your babies on any bad habits.
