I'm Blue (Da Bu De)

Music Playlist at

You guys.  This morning I realized going out to my car to go to work that Pat accidentally took my keys to work with him.  I had to catch a ride to work with my brother.  Then, I had to walk to my mom's work and catch a ride home.  

But you know what?  It wasn't so bad after all.  I actually thoroughly enjoyed my walk to my mom's work.  It's not that far and it gave me a chance to get some yayas out after a busy workday.  Plus, I found this adorable little spot to take my photos.  Win!

It rained right before I left my work and stopped while I was walking.  My suede pumps didn't get sacrificed, my hair stayed in tact for the most part, and it cooled the temp down long enough for it not to be a miserable walk.  Win!

I have a serious addiction to Dr. Pepper.  Seriously.  I have at least one a day.  So without a car to go get my daily crutch, I was concerned.  Luckily, my addiction is no secret.  The new associate attorney brought me one.  My mom brought me one and Bert, another attorney in the firm, brought me one.  I felt so loved.  Win!

I saved money on lunch and gas today because I was not driving my car.  Win!

I got to sport my new maxi from my mini shopping trip the other day.  It was so perfect and comfy and bright.  Win!

Day Seven (Last Day)
To Do:
1) Go to Winter Park

 2) Find Kaden the perfect Fedora (he has totally rocked it everyday since)

 3) Go to Amazen Mazes

 4) Get my ASS KICKED on the Alpine Slide.  Seriously.  Have you noticed that I haven't had my right arm in any photos since I've been back?  I have burns and soon to be huge scars down my arm.  You might have noticed a little scuff on my leg in most of my photos.  Yeah.  It's been rough.

 5) Go to the Sulphur Springs where Brielle and I opted to walk around and take photos rather than put our new burn wounds (she was on my lap and caught some of the road rash) in hot water

(near Estes Park, Colorado)

 Best Vaca Ever!


  1. You look so pretty in blue and white. Whoa! Alpine Slides are tons of fun, but so dangerous.

  2. Oh im glad I'm not the only one addicted to dr. pepper! and way to make lemons out of lemonade for not having your keys.


  3. Gah, I've never wiped out on the Alpine slide myself but I've seen some seriously crazy crashes that make me a little weary of it now.

    I totaled my car at the end of May and have been without one since then. I take the bus and do a lot of walking. There are days (like when the bus was without AC...) that it's awful but for the most part, it's been kind of liberating. Plus I feel like I'm in better shape from all the walking I do now :) I'll break down and buy another one when it gets cold (all this walking when it starts snowing? Not happening.), but until then I'm making due without.

    Sorry for the ramble, ha! Oh and I love the blue maxi dress :)

  4. Girl, you totally are #winning. Charlie Sheen has nothing on you. I love that blue on you. Thank you for sharing your fun vacation. I love being able to see the places that I miss from CO.



  5. Oy! Sorry to hear about the key/car troubles! What a hassle! I love this maxi color, though, and the accessories keep it fun and festive.

  6. Sounds like you're on a winning streak, lol! I hope it keeps up for you, and that blue dress is lovely.
