A Colorado Christmas

This year we spent a wonderful Christmas in Colorado. There was lots of snow, food, family, friends, and fun.

"The closest thing to heaven on this planet anywhere
is a quiet Christmas morning in the Colorado snow"

We had entirely too much fun throwing ping pong balls at each other.

And ice skating on the 16th Street Mall

I got to see my beautiful friends from high school and all of their hubbys.

  We were pretty excited about all the snow- so we played it in, a lot.

And of course we put together our annual Christmas puzzle.

Stay tuned for more Colorado posts which may or may not include... 17 mile bike rides, sled jumping with these people, snowboarding in Vail, grandpa dancing on the Wii, and my cute dog. Not to mention our holiday celebrations at the beach.

How to: have the most wonderful visit with Mom and Steff

Mom and Steff came to visit last month and let me tell you how much F-U-N we had together.  I was so glad that they finally got to see our little beach bungalow and spend some time with us in Hermosa Beach.  Here is how we had the best week ever!

1.  Check out the Santa Monica Pier.  It's one of my favorite things to do with all our visitors.  Great shopping and even better people watching.  And the newest found treasure from this place?  Gelato!!  Dare I say it's better than the gelato in Italy??  I just might...

2.  Go to Disneyland!!  It's the happiest place on Earth and in the fall time - it's the scariest!  Being there around Halloween was so fun!  I've got to look into getting a job as a decorator there. 

3.  Walk on the beach EVERYDAY.  Duh - when you live a block away from the beach it's kind of a necessity. Funny how it never gets old...

4. Hike in beautiful Palos Verdes

5. Go to the Getty - check out the amazing artwork and beautiful views!

6.  Shop!  When Mom's in town it's an absolute must!

7. Eat, Eat, Eat!!  No joke - we did not cook once the whole time they were here! 

8.  See your long lost cousins.

9.  Stare in awe at the beautiful sunsets.

10.  Cry when the week is over and begin the Countdown to Christmas in Colorado. 

Thanks for coming Mom and Steff!  We love you guys!

How to talk to Girls

Apparently this blog is becoming a place for me to post videos about little kids kissing, old people who love each other, and now - little kids giving advice about love.  I hope you find these videos as absolutely hilarious as we did.

Make me Smile

Just in case you haven't seen this amazing video yet, I thought that I would share it with you.  It kind of reminds me of this video about young love.  Except this video is about old love.
