If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you. A.A. Milne
During my trip to Colorado last week....I made more of an effort to take time for myself. Of course, I'd hoped I'd have more time because I wanted to go to the Boulder/Broomfield area and visit Denise and Cari but time goes so very fast on vacation that I didn't get to. Sorry guys! Next time....
On our way to Denver, we stopped in my old hometown of Greeley. I took Calvin to my old neighborhood and we shared a vanilla shake at the Drive Inn. It had been way too long since I'd seen my friends and their families. Anne* and Kathy* have been my BFF's for the last 15 years. Through marriages, births of children, and a couple divorces. These girls were with me and helped me through one of the darkest times of my life and I'll love them forever.

A post about girlfriends wouldn't be complete without talking about my day out with Robert*. He took me to brunch at this cute little place in Cap Hill (more about this later on my food blog, subscribe...so you don't miss it.) and then we went shopping at The Cherry Creek Mall. We had a blast! He tried to make me try on a $137,000 ring at Tiffany's, but I refused because if I touched it, I'd want it. Here we are modeling the latest hat fashion's from Anthropology.

One night, I went to a bar. I was going to meet a couple gals that I had worked with previously and a brand new friend that I met on twitter. Katherine* and I worked at the collection agency together and became fast friends when we discovered that we didn't like most of the people we worked with. Every morning we'd go down to the coffee shop in our building and grab a coffee and bagel and talk a mile a minute...and then we would talk more at each other's desk. We also both had a crush on our boss Ken. Martha* didn't come...canceling at the last minute. Bummer.

I love meeting new people that I've gotten to know from my blog and twitter. I'd recently become acquainted with Tina from My Lipstick Life and I was so excited when I found out that she lived in Denver. She agreed to come out to the bar, even though her daughter was very concerned about her meeting a stranger from the internet. LOL! Have you ever met someone for the first time and feel like you've known them forever? Tina and I could have chatted all night! AND Kat and Tina live in the same neighborhood and now they are going to be friends too. Isnt' that awesome?
*These people do not have blogs OR Tweet. Crazy right?
P.S. I'm noticing a trend here....I only wear black and aqua. Three different outfits....same colors. Funny!
