we had such a great time in denver. we spent part of saturday in boulder and i definitely fell in love with that cute little town  republic. i mean, it's a city. whatever. 

we did a lot of walking, driving around exploring, shopping, and eating. we had some yummy thai food friday night...complete with coconut sorbet for dessert.  we ate lunch at "falafel" in boulder on saturday and had gyros, hummus, falafel balls and pita bread. we ate dinner at a pub...wyncoop maybe? it was ok. and then lunch yesterday at california pizza kitchen after church at Watermark - Broomfield. told you, lots of eating.

the downfall: we didn't take many pictures. 

two to be exact.

one of me in diva mode. cupcake, coffee, & shopping bags in hand. 

and one of chase in....well, chase mode.

after a long drive back to gunny yesterday, we came home to this!

sprinkles cupcakes, my favorite color in balloon form, presents, a stinkin' cute banner and sunflowers :)

(ari was the sneaky decorator and also got me these books!!! she's the best!)

chase proceeded to make dinner for ari, ali, and i and it was delicious! he made burgers with gouda cheese, arugula, lemon juiced/oiled/salt&peppered red onions, and sweet potato fries. YUM!
(he even cleaned up afterwards! how lucky am i?! i love him.)

it was a beautiful birthday. i am so thankful. if you called me yesterday and i didn't answer because i was on the phone or out of service, expect a phone call soon!  


the birthday goodness continues with the arrival of mr. postman! 

sprinkles mix (YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS) and funniest card ever from my bestie kelley in Austin. 

(the signs read "happy birthday" "happy birthday" "i like corn on the cob")
i'm still laughing.

and thennnn i got this cutie from my Aunt Mary!!! we all know i love cupcakes! how cute is this?!
