remember me


The above photo was taken at a Broncos v. Chiefs game which we (the Broncos) won, by the way.
It's also worth nothing that I found myself at this game on a whim. A phone call and a three hour drive later, there I was. Rooting for my team in the opposing team's clothing in 17 degree weather.
I got sooo many weird looks.

For example:
*Broncos score a touchdown* I scream.
*Broncos sack the quarterback* I scream.
*Broncos push a player out of bounds* I scream.
*Player makes a super great catch* I whisper, "niiiice".

I'll be honest, I'm not super big into sports. Truthfully, I enjoy watching the ability of all athletes. But I did enjoy ending up in really good seats with people I love watching a pro football game! (which, I just realized, is probably making non-americans everywhere shed many tears. American football. aherm.)

This past thanksgiving was a good 'un.
Which, I was kind of surprised by. I'm just going to be honest.
Going home, I knew a lot of remodeling projects were being completed at our house. The structured elf within me would normally melt into a sad little puddle on the floor.
This time it did not.
I had the most fun I have had on a holiday break yet!

If anything, the spontaneity and craziness in life really makes it worth it, you know what I mean?
Like I said, I have no idea how I ended up in a stadium watching american football on a Sunday night. But there I was. I wasn't freaking out, and I wasn't off schedule. I was right where I needed to be. What a grand feeling!

Now for a few photos from my break (which were taken on my phone. I am sorry. Please don't cry.)
And they're all unedited. (I know, "dishonor on you, dishonor on your cow..." I deserve all of it.)

 ^ I gave some friends a tour of downtown Denver while they were visiting (aka I am a nerd about this city and I am okay with that) AND THESE CLOUDS SHOWED UP. Well played, Denver. Well played. My mom thought it was cool how they reflected off the buildings too.

^On a whim, we decided to stop by the capitol because it's free and my pals had never been. Somehow, we found ourselves in a tour group that went to the dome and that was an experience I will never forget! Also, our capitol is BEAUTIFUL. I had spent a week in the Oklahoma City capitol a week earlier which is just as beautiful in its own way but much more simple. But Colorado spared no expense! The details! This place was fit for a king!
 ^gah! So beautiful! Also, nerdy fact: the capitol contains the only rose marble in known existence. (you can see it makes up the wainscoting). It gets darker each floor.
 ^from the dome. We really wanted to see the Senate and House chambers, but they were closed due to updates. We did peek in though! Beautiful!

^ the view from the dome of the capitol. Oh my word. Stunning, isn't it?


Have a great week! Hopefully yours doesn't include studying for finals!
