Whew! So we've had the house a week as of this afternoon, and so far we've painted two bedrooms and a hallway, spackled the walls like crazy to fill holes, scraped off the paint on the stone windowsills, demo'd the ugly tile floor in the kitchen (which was raised 1.5-2" above the wood floors due … Continue reading House Progress 12/02/14

We bought a house!
I've been a bit absent from this blog recently--here's what's happening! We bought a house! It's a 1958 brick ranch, and we're going to be putting a lot of work into it in the next few months (and probably forever, honestly). I'll be documenting that on this blog along with our adventures (which are fewer … Continue reading We bought a house!
What would a trip to Colorado be without dinner at Casa Bonita? Well, a lot healthier, that's one thing. But not very fun! After watching the South Park Casa Bonita episode we decided we couldn't skip out on a trip to the infamous Casa Bonita. Where tacky decor, terrible entertainment, and appalling food all collide … Continue reading Casa Bonita
Denver and Coors Brewery
I know, how terrible is it that I'm still trying to catch up with posting things from July? Pretty terrible. Anyhow, so while Shawnelle was in town we spent the day downtown exploring Denver, eating delicious food at Jelly Cafe, and shopping. I didn't really take photos. Sorry. But the weather was beautiful, the food … Continue reading Denver and Coors Brewery
Breckenridge – August 2014
So I'm maybe just a biiiiiit behind in posting some adventures back from when Shawnelle was in town. I mean, this was only the beginning of August and now it's only mid-October. It could be worse! While Shawnelle was here we took her up to Breckenridge via the Loveland pass, which is always a pretty … Continue reading Breckenridge – August 2014
South Platte River
http://youtu.be/LL4ceUxu4bQ Last Friday we headed out for an overnight camping trip along South Platte River, near Deckers, Colorado. We wanted to camp somewhere with a relatively low elevation since it's been getting really cold in the mountains. After getting a little lost (because Anthony kept telling me to look for, "Pine River near Dillenger,") … Continue reading South Platte River
Ziplining and White Water Rafting
When Shawnelle and I were planning her visit, she mentioned she wanted to go ziplining and white water rafting. I wasn't really sure where or how far we'd have to go to do these things, but a quick Google search and I landed on Arkansas Valley Adventure (AVA) which offered both ziplining and rafting … Continue reading Ziplining and White Water Rafting
Overnight Rafting Trip
I have a lot more photos and things to share from Shawnelle's visit, but wanted to get this fun trip Anthony and I went on up and posted! In early August, Anthony and I joined some of Anthony's coworkers on an overnight rafting trip from Grand Junction, Colorado, into Utah. We rented a raft (it's … Continue reading Overnight Rafting Trip
Matthews Winters Park Hike
Last week, my friend Shawnelle was in town! Shawnelle and I met in Germany about six years ago when we worked for the Edelweiss Lodge and Resort (that's where I met Anthony too!), and quickly became friends. I don't get to see her often since she lives in California, so when Shawnelle wanted to visit … Continue reading Matthews Winters Park Hike
http://youtu.be/gz16YSpHL1c Sometimes, we get bored. Then when our landlady mentions there are a bunch of crawfish in the creek behind our house, we decide to go crawfishing and have a crawfish boil. Of course, we'd never done such a thing before, but thankfully, lots of people on the internet have! We walked down the creek with … Continue reading Crawfish Boil
