Gooey Butter Cookies

I absolutely love bringing sweets to my clients, my lenders, and the rest of my sphere. No one wants to just get a business card, but I don’t know a person that doesn’t love cookies or cupcakes or brownies. With the baby, it had been a while since I had made anything, so this week…

Pizza Pedal’r

We live in such a beautiful state that it is such a waste to sit at home every weekend and do nothing…not that we don’t do that from time to time. With the new baby, this summer kind of flew by without us doing much. So the past two weekends, we decided to venture up…

Mary’s Mountain Cookies

If you are in Breckenridge and looking for something to satisfy your sweet tooth, stop in Mary’s Mountain Cookies, located on Main Street. It has been a Breckenridge staple for me since I can remember. Whether you are looking for a peanut butter cookie and frosting sandwich, a snickerdoodle ¬†dipped in white chocolate, a¬†basic chocolate…

Snooze

If you live in Denver and don’t live under a rock, you know about Snooze. It was Readers’ Pick this year for 5280’s Top of the Town. Its’ wild popularity has driven expansion. Now serving seven locations in Colorado, Snooze has expanded to soon-to-be three other states (California, Arizona, and Texas). With a list of…

Baby Boy Part One – Little Mister Man

I had a relatively normal pregnancy. My morning sickness was really all day nausea that latest well into my second trimester. I wanted to sleep all the time. My back hurt constantly. During the second trimester, it took me three stops to make it up the stairs because I had such a hard time breathing….

Bacon Social House

With a brand new baby boy at home, date nights are pretty much non-existent right now. However, on our one year anniversary, we were able to sneak out for a little adult time. We wanted to try something new, and when a restaurant with bacon in the name popped up on our search, we were…

Beau Jo’s – Idaho Springs

As you read in my Parry’s post, I LOVE pizza. And while Parry’s holds a special place in my heart, there is just something about Beau Jo’s Colorado-style pizza that I have to make room for in there as well. You have New York style, Chicago style, California style, Detroit style, the list goes on…

Maui Wowi Coffee

Because my dad worked for the airlines, growing up I was surrounded by airplanes. We flew all the time – a vacation each year and multiple times back to see family. Flying standby meant a lot of waiting around for a flight you could actually get on which, in turn, meant I spent a lot…

Parry’s Pizzeria and Bar

I absolutely LOVE pizza. Pepperoni pizza to be exact. I don’t know what I would do if pizza didn’t exist. I have eaten a lot of pizza throughout my life, everything from Papa John’s to butternut squash pizza at Osteria Marco’s. But I have a special place in my heart for Parry’s Pizza…especially the location…
