Current Obsessions!!!

Sooooooo i really have nothing new to report, or fun to talk i figured i'd let ya'll in on what my current obsessions are!! (Not really in any particular order!!)

1. FroYo..... this isn't a new one....but it's a good one!!! I heart me some frozen yogurt!!

2. Body Pump..... If you've never gone to this class....Go. Get up right now and go!! We used to go at least twice a week, but with my new job i don't get to go as much....sad sad day.

3. Pretend house hunting. This obsession just started.... like yesterday. First things first though, we must get pre-approved!!
4. Cowboy salsa..... if you haven't had it. Make it... it's AMAZING!!! I can eat it with a spoon!

5. Pumpkin. It's that time of year!! Got my pumpkin spice candle goin....pumpkin cookies.... ohhh speaking of, YOU HAVE TO TRY THESE!!! You only need these two things....

Mix these two...bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes and VOILA!!!! You have these beauties!!

I'd recommend cream cheese frosting or maybe even just whip cream! YUM-O!!!

October 15th

October 15 is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day.

Visit to learn more about resources for women and families. And please take a moment to remember the 2,000 babies whose hearts will stop beating today as a result of miscarriage, stillbirth, and neonatal death.

To the moms in this community who have lost their babies: You, especially, are in my heart on this day.

I've been quite the blog slacker lately.....sorry! So i'll do my best to update on the happenings out here in Denver.
As you all are aware I started my new job!!! So far so good!! Still a little frustrated with the whole move thing, but it hasn't been as slow as i was worried it would be. Now i'm just trying to adjust to my new schedule!! I work Monday, Wed., and Thursdays from 930-7pm,
Tuesdays 8-430 and Fridays (BEST PART!!!) 9-2!!! I don't really mind the late nights as long as i get my butt up early and hit the gym before hand!! Everyone I work with is super friendly...we even have Muffin Mondays!!!
Trav's still working his part time job at Colorado Ski and Golf. He works two to three times a week....which he seems to handle well!! And if you ask me it's worth it!!! We BOTH get free ski passes! That saves us nearly $1,000!!! HOLLA!!! Speaking of skiing...... we're READY!!! Trav seems to think we'll get our first snow at the end of this month......we shall see!
We have a fun weekend coming up this weekend!! Trav's parents will be visiting and so will my friend Jenna!!! The inlaws are here to watch our little cousin cheer at her high school football game then they're off to Cuchara to see some leaves turning!! (sounds strange but it really is beautiful!!) Jen is just coming out to hang!!! I have no idea what i'm going to do to entertain her, but i'm sure we'll figure something out!!!
We haven't traveled anywhere lately....just kind of being homebodies! We have some fun trips planned though!!
October 22nd i'm headed back to good ol DC for my aunts wedding!!! I'm super excited to go back home, i haven't been since CHRISTMAS!!!! So jess...sarah......prepare yourselves (and your houses, since i've yet to see them!! ) :)
Oct. 29th we'll be headed back to our old stomping ground for some KSTATE football!! I.CAN.NOT.WAIT!!! I really really really really really really miss that place. I plan on hitting up some of my favorite places while there.... so long, pita pit, varney's, and probably pita pit again :) The whole McGuire clan will be there...along with a truck load of our old friends! It promises to be quite the eventful weekend!!
Ohhhhhh and Nov. 18th a few of my favorite peeps will be arriving at DIA to spend a weekend cheering on the Cats with me as they BEAT CU!!! Sounds like we're going to have several visitors that weekend.... i'm mentally preparing now for my house to look like ATO on a Sunday morning after all this!
After that I'll be taking a trip to the Windy City in December (yes i realize this may be the dumbest move ever....but i'm just along for the ride!!!). My dear friend J-Mo (Jenna) is getting married in Mexico so we're doing her bach. party before in Chicago!! I'm super pumped and possibly already anticipating frost bite.
Well that's about all thats coming up in our future.....i'm sure it'll change at least a billion times....but it keeps me on my toes!!
