Hello friends!

I've kinda been MIA on the blog scene lately.

Well, that's because two weeks ago, I loaded all this stuff up...
...hit the road...
...and have been spending quality time {like two weeks solid} with this thing {the trade show booth}.

In the past two weeks, I've been to:
~ Colorado Cattlemen's Convention
~ Colorado Farm Show
~ High Plains No-Till Convention
~ CSU Ag Sciences Career Fair
~ Arkansas Valley Farm, Ranch and Water Symposium


One of the perks of being on the road, is good meals and treats!

When I was in Fort Collins for the Career Fair, I tried out the Rustic Oven and had their spicy shrimp and artichoke pizza. 
SO yummy.

And when I'm in the city, any city, I always start my morning with a special coffee treat, seeing as how on a normal day, the only "special" coffee treat available to me is 99 cent cappuccino from Loaf 'n Jug.
Um, no thank you.
But FYI...John Wayne loves that stuff and would drink it over Starbucks any day.

The Rocky Mountain Collegian - CSU's campus newspaper.
I worked here in college, doing PR for them.

Overnight stays in the city, also means shopping trips.  Alone. With no kids.
Although I learned that shopping trips, alone, with no kids, can be particularly hard on the wallet.
I did start picking up stuff for the Little Lady's mermaid birthday party that's coming up in a few weeks.

While on campus, I got the Little Buckaroo this adorable Colorado State "Lil' Ram" cap.
I also got T a pink CSU water bottle.
She loves it.
I've never seen her drink so much water.
Apparently, pink CSU water bottles make drinking water fun.

This might be a good time to note that we have a problem in our household.
When I returned from CSU with these goodies, John Wayne and I were teaching T to say where her and GW are going to go to school.
"CU" says the Little Lady.
UGH! NO. NO. NO.  You cannot forget to say the S.  The S is very important in this case Tressie.

And finally, a random donut picture for the week.
Donuts make any week good, right?
My Mom made homemade chocolate donuts and the Little Lady and I frosted and decorated them.
They were delicious.

Have a great weekend my friends!

Roadtrips + shopping alone = heaven! :)
