ketchup time.

i mean, catch up. lots has been happening around here!

wooooo 4th of july! hope yours was as enjoyable as ours. it's been an absolutely hectic few days (starting on thursday) but we survived. here's a run-down.

thursday morning we woke up early (reeeeeally early) to head to boulder. we needed to get a p.o. box & a storage unit. about an hour in we stopped on cottonwood pass to take a little hike. we hiked to the top of a mountain and took some photos & hiked down. 

we got to boulder & took care of business. then we got to meet up with alex & robert for lunch at mountain sun brewery!!! alex was a bridesmaid of mine and they just got hitched & moved to denver!! so pumped to be in the same state as them again.
((chase, why are you making a squinty face?))

i also got to meet for coffee with a new friend in boulder & her cute baby boy! we are going to take over boulder with our craftiness upon my return to the states. just watch.

by the time 4 o clock rolled around on thursday we.were.pooped....and absolutely did not want to drive back to gunny. so we didn't. got a hotel room & went out on the town! spontaneous date night? YES please!

we, then, woke up early friday morning and when we stopped for coffee & gas my car decided it was too hot and wanted to smoke & leak all the coolant fluid. cool, libby. real cool.

we got some antifreeze and rode the WHOLE 4+ hours home with the heater on and going super slow so she wouldn't overheat on the passes again. sheesh. 

no worries. we got it fixed first thing friday when we got back. stupid jeep.

friday was also the twins' (that i nanny) birthday. balloons, cupcakes, snacks, and two cute little babies...perfect!

((set up by yours truly with some help from their precious mama))

saturday we headed to lake city and set up for some sort of craft show. (is that bad i don't know what it was called?) all i know is that those tourists brought the moolah with them that day....and the next. we set up again after the 4th of july parade for a few hours. i sold almost all my headbands (all rosette ones disappeared the 1st day), half of my apparel, all but 10 (of 40+) pairs of earrings, half of my coffee cuffs, etc. thank youuuuuuu, jesus.  

oh, and here's a full shot of the tunic i made last week!

here's a photo of me with joy, who bought a farmer's market dress & immediately changed into it. how perfect is it on her?!
