Friends. I love them.

I have amazing friends :)
Porter was with his Dad for the weekend, and I needed a friend, like, really needed a friend on Friday night, and I texted my friend Deb and told her I was coming up. She lives about 20 mins from me, at the top of a mountain pretty much, and it's like being a million miles away. 
So we spent Friday night and all of Saturday organizing her room (aka mountains of clothes). We drank wine and sat in her hot tub and just hung out and laughed. I haven't laughed so much and so hard for so long that I can't even remember when the last time was. My abs were legitimately sore by the end of the weekend, from laughing. We left the house briefly to have brunch on Saturday and her roommate met up with us for a few. It was exactly what I needed this weekend and I feel so much better than when I got there Friday night really upset and angry...

AND. She took me on Sunday to get mani pedis and facials and steam beds and spray tans. Freaking amazing. 

Really I just wanted to say how awesome it is to have the friends I do. 
I love you, friends :) 
You know who you are...

Happy St Patty's Day!

I picked up Porter from his dad's around noon and we headed back to my house for lunch.
It was such a beautiful day today.
We sat around for a while and got restless so I loaded up Porter into the car,
and just started driving, haha.
I knew I wanted to do something outside but didn't feel like going to the park,
so we drove down the hill into Denver and ended up at the zoo.
That's the nice thing about having a zoo membership.
We can head down at 3:30 and spend an hour or two there and it's just perfect :)
There's a baby leopard, named Sochi, who was born in December.
He's an Amur leopard and they're almost extinct 
It's awesome seeing him grow...but the best part?
Watching him with his mom.
They're always together, just the two of them, and he's always playing.
He pounces on her tail and they roll around.
His mom watches us and you can just see how protective she is of him.
Anyway, I love the zoo, a lot. Haha.

 After the zoo, we stopped by my friend's food truck, Farm to Truck.
They have a page on Facebook, but I can't link it because I don't have Facebook anymore
(that's a whole other post in itself I suppose...)
but go find them there!
They're parked outside of Renegade Brewery every Monday, so if you want some really freakin' good chicken and waffles (among other things), stop down!
We hung out for a while and played Connect Four, 
and Porter was pumped about his Peaches and Cream "pop" that he got to drink 
(from the truck of course).
It was a great St Patty's day!

Happy Friday!

I know that everyone keeps talking about the weather, and personally i'm kind of tired of reading about it, but here I am talking about it myself, ha. But i'm not complaining about it, which seems to be the trend. I live in Colorado, about 30 mins west of Denver (so, higher elevation, and pretty dang close to the mountains). Winter here has been pretty easy to deal with this year. Yeah, it was cold that week that it was like, -8798263846 everywhere else, but it didn't last long. It's snowed a few times enough that I didn't wanna leave my house those days, and didn't. But the thing about Colorado is that the sun shines more days than it doesn't, and since we're higher in elevation, we're closer to the sun. So when we get a few inches of snow, the sun shines within a day or two and the roads are dry. The main ones anyway. 
This time of year the weather is crazy. It'll be 60 all day, then the sun goes down and it'll get cold and snow a few inches, then by noon the next day it's 50 and the snow is completely melted wherever the sun is hitting it. But anyway, ha. My whole point is that we truly enjoy the snow days now because it'll be gone tomorrow and nice out again :)
He's discovered Photo Booth. I now have countless pictures of his face and hands and feet. And that deodorant. Ha.
This is the wallpaper on my phone right now. I feel like if I read it enough times i'll believe it :)

He's three!

Porter turned three today, and we had soo much fun. 

He woke up to balloons everywhere. Then got to eat cupcake frosting for breakfast (well, not entirely, he also ate "real" breakfast after that). With a sparkling candle :) The balloons in the trampoline were such an awesome idea, he was cracking me up so much jumping with all of them inside of it.
We headed to the zoo after breakfast. It was the PERFECT day to be there. Almost 60 and sunny, and barely anyone there. Perfect I tell ya. Porter walked the entire time and we lasted about 2.5 hours.
Then, we came home and made cupcakes. Lots of cupcakes.
Then we finally rested, haha. Well, and roller skated. Even though Porter calls them "ice skates" ha.
After that, we made pizza. Mmmm.

Such an awesome day. So exhausting, but awesome :)

I love my little guy. I love that he's getting older, he's so much fun these days. He's my little sidekick and I love it. So much.
