Playing Catch Up

Well, I am back in the great state of Texas, sweating my butt off, and reliving the nice weekend over and over again in my head. 

I was lucky enough to be in Denver the last couple of days. Got to catch up with friends from college and went to a wedding up in the gorgeous mountain village of Beaver Creek. 

View from the cocktail hour at the Ritz. Fancy!

Beautiful bride, beautiful setting and a great time with friends. Really, what more could you ask for?!

A big group of us sorority sisters there for the wedding.

I'm playing a nice little game of catch up today. Lots to do around the house here and lots to do in bloggyland. Been missing ya'll!

Oh, almost forgot. I figured out how to get that special Truck Nuts picture off my dad's camera. Haha, that will never get old on there. 

So, without further ado, here are the white trashiest Truck Nutz around. Gotta love 'em. 

Told ya they were homemade!! And rusty!

If you aren't having a great Monday after that, then I don't know what to do. 

I'll be around to visit all of ya'll today!! At least that is my goal :)

And for tomorrow, I can't wait to share with you the real reason I love traveling....SkyMall!!!

  1. I'm so glad we get to see the real photo of the nuts nuts! Also, that photo from cocktail hour is stunning. A cocktail doesn't sound too bad actually, is 10 am too early?

  2. Yes, SkyMall rocks. They have the answers to all life's problems located in that small germ-infested magazine!!!

    Enjoy Texas!!! Safe travels! And cheers to hopefully seeing Truck Nuts for daysss!

  3. Sounds like you are having a great vacation.

  4. Good to have you back in Bloggyland!! Btw I love the Finnish guy in your new header!! You gotta teach him Moi Moi..lol

  5. Looks like your truck nuts are a lot like the ones we have driving around my city. Except the ones we have here actually look like bull balls!!! Looks like you had a great time at the wedding.

  6. @Jordan - it so was. And no, never too early for a cocktail hour. Remember, it is always 5 oclock somewhere!
    @Megan - how did I know you would love it too. So germy, so good, haha. Well thanks for the cheers, haha, awesome.
    @oilfield - really am. And couldn't have asked for better weather there!
    @MrsK - ohhh, I love moi moi (and even knew what that meant, lol). Thanks for having me back.
    @Ross - you must live in a classy city like me, haha. So gross. I did, it was gorgeous there!

  7. LOLOL RUSTY TRUCK NUTZ. Seriously...Truck Nutz = A joke that will never get old :)

  8. How nice that you got to reunite with your sorority sisters. I can NOT let my husband see that photo of the truck nuts - I don't want to dive him any ideas!

  9. Talk about balls of steel! hehe!

    I've never been to Denver. Or Texas, for that matter!

    Oh well, I guess I have been to lots of places in Europe that Americans haven't been to. Yourself excepted, Texagerm! :-)


  10. Those are the best truck nuts! I was born in Denver...Colorado is beautiful!

  11. Can't wait to read your thoughts on Sky Mall - I have yet to make up my mind on this one!

  12. I LOVE Beaver Creek. One of my very best friends and his wife live there. Were the friends who happened to get married named Howard and Katie?

  13. From Germany to Texas to Colorado? You are a true jet setter. Love the pics!

  14. I absolutely LOVE beaver Creek! Glad you had such a wonderful time! :)

  15. That wedding looks like it was gorgeous! I love SkyMall. I always flip through it, amazed that I never 'thought of that'! PS) Anytime you want to guest post on my blog. . . I'm game! E-mail it! Happy Monday, friend!

  16. Trashy or mocking of those who hang the "real" thing?

    I like to think it's the latter.

  17. @An Irish - haha, Never ever! And don't you forget that, lol
    @Kara - it was a blast. It was such a random group of us, but that just made it that much more fun! And no, please don't spread the idea of these, haha
    @Paul - I have a feeling you would like both. And even though I am real partial to Texas, Colorado is amazing. Its a must one day. Thanks Paul!
    @Marcy - soooo beautiful. It is one place that might make me leave Texas one day. I said might.
    @Erin - haha, awesome. I will do my best to convince you then, lol
    @April - soo beautiful, it was my first time there. No, not Howard and Katie. But we may or may not have crashed their reception! haha, just kidding. Good hearing from you girl!
    @Copyboy - lol, if you say so :) Thanks! I should have gotten more, the scenery was literally breath taking.
    @Laura - I had no idea so many people knew and loved it! Well thanks, we really did.
    @Rachel - you are so sweet, I have gotten so busy doing 'real life'...man that sucks. For sure I need to email you, I even have a good idea. And duh, SkyMall rocks! lol
    @Ellen - oh, one can only think optimistically and believe it is the latter. ;)

  18. Oh I love SkyMall!!! LOL So many useful useless things... Glad you had a good trip. I'm behind on my bloggyland adventures as well. Haven't posted since Friday (gasp!) - hope you have a great week Tex!

  19. I think it's the rust that's the most off-putting.

    Denver looks fabulous! Glad you had a good trip, but glad you're back :)

  20. I think it would be a hoot to see what the driver of this truck looks like. LOLRO

  21. Awesome nuts :) I'm trying to play catch up too! Darn job is getting in the way and i'm so far behind!

  22. Please don't tell me you bought something from the SkyMall lol. I love the brides dress it's so unique and pretty. Alllllmost as pretty as those nuts. KIDDING!

  23. I showed that last picture to Linden and he said, "Mommy, that's Tow-Mater!" ... you know, from Disney-Pixar Cars?

  24. @Heather - I mean, who doesn't?! Hope you are having a great week too, Heather!
    @Katie - haha, no kidding. Well thanks girl!
    @Marjory - Oh geez, that needs to be the next pic I snap
    @TriGirl - haha, well thanks. What a compliment ;) I think blogging is hard during summer. Too many other fun things to do!
    @KY - Ummm, I'm thinking about it, is that wrong?! Her dress was so cute and so perfect and her. You are sweet to notice that! Almost, haha, not kidding.
    @HW - haha, that is awesome. I can only imagine him thinking that Mater has those now, lol

  25. Oh my gosh, those nuts are hilarious! Glad you had a great weekend.
