Denver with Suzie

Last fall- yep like last November Suzie and I decided we had to see Adele in concert. We started searching for dates and decided we would try to find tickets for Chicago. I got online and after having zero luck the Chicago concert sold out. I was bummed. I called Jeff to tell him about how unlucky I was when it comes to finding tickets for things.... He called me shortly after to tell me she was going to be in Denver the following weekend and would try to get us tickets. 

To make a long story short, he got them! Woohoo! So our plan was in action for a fun weekend in Denver in July. Suzie took care of some details and I took care of some and the next thing we knew the weekend was here! 

Suzie and I had to fly separately because of Joe and Amy's wedding so Suzie arrived several hours before me. I arrived late Friday evening for some appetizers and drinks. We went to bed and got a full nights sleep and woke up Saturday morning ready to shop! We spent a couple hours wondering downtown and then went to the mall to hit our favorite stores. 

First major highlight of the trip happened Saturday evening when we stumbled up Larimer Square for  dinner. It was so quant. They had all the tables brought to the street and had the street blocked off for live music and dinner and drinks. After we had dinner we walked around a bit and took a pedicab to the hotel. 

Sunday we slept in and got some lunch and went back to the mall. This is where the second major highlight of the trip was (for me)- running into Lauren from the Bachelor and taking a picture with her. It was pretty fun and awesome and I was pretty much freaking out. 

Sunday afternoon was the third highlight of our trip- we spent a couple hours hanging out on the rooftop bar at our hotel. We just chilled. Suzie brought her book and we had a couple raspberry mojitos. It was the perfect afternoon. 

Obviously our fifth and best highlight of the trip was seeing Adele in concert on Sunday evening. She was amazing. She was funny, it felt more like a story tellers concert as she would explain why she wrote each song and how it pertained to her life. 

Monday morning we were back at the airport coming home after a great weekend away! 

Thanks Suz, for the fun weekend! Love you forever! My soul sister.

Anna Marie Oliver

Anna was born on 12/16/10 @ 4:07pm. She weighed 7lbs 9oz and was 20 inches long. The delivery was the easiest part of my day. After she was born I hemorrhaged and lost 1200 cc's of blood and was taken to the OR to stop the bleeding. Thankfully they got the bleeding under control. After I got back to the room I developed a major spinal headache from the epidural. I went in for 2 different blood patches that never did quite fix it. They would help for about 24 hours or so and then the headache would come back. I ended up spending 5 days flat on my back. People were constantly here taking care of Isaac and only bringing Anna in to nurse. I am so blessed to have all the help but still devastated I wasn't able to spend the time with my new baby and my energetic toddler. I am finally feeling better and am able to be upright for a longer period of time. Thank God. It has been an emotional roller coaster.

Anna is perfect. She eats, sleeps and poops. I forgot how much newborns sleep! Is…

Happy 2nd Birthday Anna!

Oh Happy Birthday to our wild and crazy little girl! One thing for sure I learned this Birthday is having a girl is completely different than having a boy. Pink everything! Pink took kit, pink legos, pink minnie mouse, purse with make up, minnie mouse dress up, and on and on! 
Anna started the day with a few melt downs but as the day went on things went better. When people showed up for the party she was having so much fun! She loved being the center of the party, for sure! 
To my Anna, 
2 years ago you came into our lives and you have changed our world. You strong willed and you think you are the boss. I laugh when you yell at Ozzy, which is most of the time. You and Isaac play well, most of the time. There is the occasional pinch or hit (usually on your part). I have learned to stop fighting you on things like putting socks and shoes on before we go in the car, or putting your coat on. I just bring it with us because you want to do it on your time. I know that you mostly just want …

Visiting Santa

The kids wanted to wait until we got to Arizona to see Santa. That's what we did, the first morning we were there. It is a fun interactive Santa with games and a naughty or nice meter. 
They were both pretty excited to talk to the big guy. Anna stuck around as long as she could.
