Colorado - Part 1

I'm back. I'm having a hard time getting back into a routine. I think it's a combination of not sleeping, not sleeping in my bed, not being home & things just being crazy busy.

I don't have the pictures from my good camera yet. They're still on the camera. I'm going to work on that this week.

So a week ago this past Friday I was packed & ready to go. Instead of taking a Benadryl & going to sleep early to be ready for my 2:30 am wake up call I was at Caliente with some of our peeps having a Jose Special. It was delicious but not exactly conducive to a 2:30 wake up. I ended up with 4 hours of sleep Friday night. Not good. Luckily I was able to sleep on the plane. We arrived in Denver at 7:40 am. It took a little while to gather all the luggage & to get the rental. Speaking of, the new Suburban looks like the Munsters car. Every time I saw it I thought of a hearse. Not cute. We decided to take a tour of Sports Authority Field where the Bronco's play. It was super interesting. We had a really good tour guide & heard all sorts of interesting tidbits.
We were able to go all over except into the home locker room. I don't really understand that. It's not like it's football season but that's ok. By the time the tour was over I'd been awake for more than 8 hours & I needed food. Preferably lunch. We found a cute place.
I had pulled pork nachos & a wedge salad. So so so good! The drink was delicious too. You can't really tell from the pics but downtown Denver was adorable! The hanging baskets of flowers were so pretty. It was a little like Bourbon St. but it was very, very clean & apparently not much crime because there were chess games & all sorts of other things left out on tables for everyone to enjoy.

We walked around a little bit downtown before heading to our condo in Winter Park which is about 1 1/2 hrs. away from Denver. I slept a little on the ride before Dean woke me up because I was missing the views.

This was the condo we stayed in. The people that own it are friends with my friend Cindy. It was 3 stories with 3 Br's & 3 1/2 Ba's. It was super cute!! The picture on the left is the view from the balcony. The kicker was that it didn't have A/C. Completely unheard of when you live in Louisiana. 

Once we got settled at the condo we headed out to buy groceries. I was very happy when we got there & there was a Starbucks in the store! I'm pretty sure we saw no less than 852 Starbucks on our 5 day trip.
