Oh I'm Way Behind...

We've just been busy! Packing, interviewing, figuring out moving stuff.....not anything fun but time consuming!

So of course this blog gets pushed aside!

The weather has been sooo annoying!! We'll have a few days of gorgeous sunny warm weather and then a few days of snow! Yes, snow. Sticking to the ground, icy roads, covering my car before's BS!

But on those beautiful days (when I'm not working) we enjoy the outdoors as much as possible!

One of those days we read on the deck and soaked up the sun with Morgie!

We've also been cooking. Eggplant rollatini! Yummm!! They were soo good!

It was soo nice (of course right before Garrett flew out here) so we went to one of our favorite places, the Denver Beer Co.

Enjoying the sun!!!! And a delicious microbrew!

 My new favorite beer of the moment! Left Hand Brewing Co 'Good Juju'. Mmmmm! And an awesome label too!

Collin's homemade pizza: pepperoni, mushrooms, jalapeno, mozzarella & romano cheeses.

And my creation...while Collin was in PA I made myself some ahhhhmazing shrimp tacos!

 More to come.....G-man flew out for a visit and I haven't had a chance to post about it! Next time...

Oh boy oh boy oh boy! We can't stay put. We're moving again.

Where to you wonder?


Not around Colorado...

Or any other state for that matter....

Yes...your dreams are coming true! (ok...just kidding)

We're coming, coming back, back to good ol' Pennsylvania. Yes, you heard that right. PA!

We don't really have many details nailed down yet. But we are coming back at the beginning of May. My parents are kind enough to fly out here, help us pack, (throwing a wedding dress try-on in the mix too) and drive back with us.

Reasons you ask?

Mainly: Denver is saturated with tooth docs and Collin has had a hard time finding a good job as an associate. He eventually wants to open his own practice or buy into a practice and we've decided that we would rather be near our families to do so.

I've been applying to jobs as well and I'm happy to say I've already had a couple interviews with the Emergency Room and the Intensive Care Unit! Really excited about that and we will see where I end up!

I'll keep you posted!

Sadly, this blog MIGHT die with the move.......????

Suk has not been forgotten! I know, according to my pictures it looks like she has but that is FALSE! Here is my little bundle of spots having some alone time, aka Morgan was closed in the kitchen and unable to sniff her out.

But back to my favorite child.....

Just kidding, Suki's still my favorite little gal. She's way more calm and way less needy than he is at this puppy age!
But here's the baby boy at 8 weeks old vs 18 weeks old....what a difference 10 weeks makes!!
And he's growing every day too!

My mom and nana told me about a mural and some faux painting that my mom was doing in my pop's nursing home room but I really had no idea of anything more than that. I've, of course, known that my mom was a super talented artist so I assumed it was beautiful but haven't had the chance to see it.

Recently, the Lancaster paper wrote up a story about the mural and it literally made me break down and cry. It was a great article but the comments from my pop and the smiling picture of my mom and pop in front of the mural just pushed me over the edge. It was awesome and I've never been more proud of my mom. So cool.

Obviously, this picture is blurry and doesn't do the painting or people any justice but if you go to the actual article and click on the picture it is much more clear.

Here's the link to the article!

Last Saturday it dumped snow in Denver. It started on Friday night, when we were thinking about getting tickets to go to the USA/Costa Rica World Cup Qualifier game. If you watched that game you know that it was seriously dumping snow. I was surprised that they finished the game actually. And I was reallllly happy that we didn't go, it would have been miserable (for me!...).

So, this morning we woke up to a super snowy scene, probably 8-10". We decided to head out to the grocery store and get stuff for some yummy weekend meals.

Saturday's meal was homemade meatballs. Mmmmmmmmm they smelled soooo good, I couldn't wait to eat them!!

After browning them we simmered them in sauce for about 4-5 hours. Collin made garlic bread as well....mmmmmmmm mmmm mmmmmm! Yumm!
