We have our first official non-family visitors this weekend! We have friends from Iowa here, and are very excited to show them around. Yesterday we drove up to the mountains, went hiking, and enjoyed the outdoors. Tonight we get to go out for dinner, while all the kids stay home! As soon as they leave I need to pack like crazy. We move next weekend, and I am not quite ready. Nothing like a little procrastination 🙂
I wanted to remind you of the Colorado Wildfires Bake Sale I am hosting tomorrow. I have almost 45 items to bid on, and 3 amazing prizes that will be raffled off. Please tell your friends, tweet about it, share on Facebook, pin this badge, whatever it takes to spread the word!
Here is what I was up to this week:
