Mile High Marketplace

On Saturday, Beth & I ate corn....at the Mile High Marketplace.  I was in need of some apartment furnishing and I really lucked out & Beth found an antique phone, which was pretty perfect. We got matching pretty rings.
After we were sunburned and windburned, we went to Hobby Lobby, Ross & Big Lots.
We found so many deals and Beth was really my personal shopper/shopping cart.  I can't even think about it or I'll start laughing and I won't stop.
Big Lots by far had the strangest employees of all the places we visited.

I've been packing very slowly, but it's coming along!  I'm driving to North Dakota on Thursday and heading back to Denver on Monday (without Oliver, how sad).  I really could not be more excited to see my family (especially if Roey brings me chippers)!

Katherine's dress

Dress success! It fits...and no photo would be complete without at least someone getting bunny ears.

Happy Tape!

I bought some of the pretty masking tape today.  I've already thought of 18392432 ways to use it.

I can climb that tree, too!

Oliver & I met Adam, Loren & Francie @ Cherry Creek Dog Park.  Oliver really loves Adam and follows him everywhere.  I think he feels macho.

He does not know how to swim!

Habitat Day

Yesterday, I went to work on a Habitat house with some of my co-workers.  A small group of 3 of us ending up siding the back of a carport unit.
It was a rocky start - the previous workers who had marked lines for the studs...well, it wasn't accurate at all, but we did some calculated guessing and ended up finding them (mostly).
And as you can see above, our little "work space" was so cluttered and messy.  I don't know why there were scraps so close to where we were working, but it was hazardous...I stumbled all around (but never fell!).
Considering that some people swept the entire day, I think we had a perfect little job...and we learned some new, including, how to use power tools.
We all sort of crashed at around 2pm - I would've love loved some (a lot) of coffee, especially when it started to SNOW, but we made it.
I'm a little sore today and am happy to go back to being a librarian on Monday!!
