our happy trails… our trip to the city… that city was denver!
the mile high city!
i think i forget every time JUST how great denver IS!
lots to see lots to do.

the BEST part of our trip?
i got to meet a friend face to face!
that sounds so funny!
a blogging friend… whom i’ve known… gosh… a year & half i’m thinking!
she was REAL… a real live gal sitting right there in front of me!
it was SO fun!

i got to meet the TRULY awesome Rachel…
of lost in the attic with cupcakes!

let me tell you…
she is SO fun!
teeny tiny… cute as all get out… and SO personable…
JUST like i thought… KNEW she would be!
the exact personality… the same spunk… it was all there!

and of course she showed up with surprises…
made me the cutest market bag ever… that i LOVE…
AND… she said she wanted the girlies to have something.
look at the ornament she “whipped up”…
”not my gumdrop button”!
uh… hello… i am lucky to sew on a missing button!
from her photography… her 7 Gypsys creations… her sewing…
and all the great in between… her talents run deep & wide!
if you have not been by her blog… go… you’ll see!

btw rachel… the girlies adore him!
thank you SO much!

i could have turned the breakfast into lunch and chatted all day with her.
thank you rachel… that was too fun… next time… more time!

wow!
not sure WHAT it is… but THEY have it going on!
in denver?… GO THERE!


didn’t get many pics from our trip…
odd… i usually have too many… go nuts!  :)

i think between the kids… the hubby… and the “oh my word” shopping…
i just forgot!

the girlies favorite thing i think about the weekend…
aside from the shopping of course…
pushing the elevator buttons and going up and down the escalator!

from the sushi… the slippers in our hotel room… to seeing my cupcake friend…
it was ALL yummy!
