Happy Halloween
Well, the big day finally arrived...the debut of the final tutu! We decided to go with a superhero theme and had a great time.

Day Three - Team Up
Had to be the rebel today and go with the other local team and pull out my Avs jersey.

Also had a great final night of league golf...will be missing everything about it though this off-season. And who doesn't love some sweet treats...especially when they are from the "darkside".

Fall Golf & Family
The weather continues to be perfect for more fall it!! This might be the last weekend of skort weather though. :(

We hosted family dinner this month. Being so close to Halloween and sticking with our International theme, I went with Transylvania - Romanian Cuisine. As you can see from the photo, we had a great time!

Blacklight Run
Many of our CSE peeps headed up to Bandimere Speedway for the Blacklight Run. We managed to get in a little tailgating prior to the event. I hadn't planned on running the 5K, so I enjoyed several refreshments before hand...still managed to make it in about 30 the dark and dodging strollers. Sorry for the pic overload, but there were too many fun ones! :)

The Sun
Both photos today are sun related. I know I'm a total geek, but I had to "view" the partial solar eclipse today. Just like when I was a kid, I made a pin-sized hole in an index card and held it between the sun and a piece of white paper. It's not the best pic, but you can see how the circle is missing a small crescent shape at the bottom...that's the eclipse! I know...not very cool, but still fun!

We had a great blue and orange sunset tonight...just in time for the Bronco's Thursday Night Football game. GO BRONCOS!

For several holes, the best part of last night was no rain. Then I got the par four, 5th hole. I know I've gotten an eagle before, but just don't remember when. Now I can say my last eagle was October 22, 2014. I managed to save it for the next to last week of post-season league play...would have helped my ringer score get under 30! I wasn't overly impressed with my tee shot and was about 112 yards out. Hit my pitching wedge, the ball hit 3-5 yards short of the pin and the rest is history. It was a fun shot!!

Had to add the of my favorite sweet treats to eat and share. Love my pink and red!:)

Looking Forward
Was around the shells....missing a few of my favorite things...sand, sun and water. I'm needing a dive trip!

Tonight several of the girls and I got together and worked on our tutus for Saturday's Blacklight 5K Run at Bandimere. Looking forward to a great night with all of them!

Had to wear the new shoes getting ready for Halloween. Not my "big girl boots," but still like them!

Another beautiful fall day in Colorado! The scrub oak around Castle Rock are peaking this weekend. 

A great Bronco game as Peyton Manning reached 510 TB Passes...what an amazing athlete!

New Find
As I've been experimenting with different beers this season, I came across this interesting flavor tonight. I love Rumchata so I had to give it a try. It ended up being pretty good!

As we've been cleaning and sorting through closets and containers, I came across some of my old ski gear. Wishing I liked both skiing and snowboarding more, but I won't be getting a concussion while diving!

Tried to get together with some gals from work. Just a couple of us, but it was a great night at Parry's Pizza! I did enjoy some very yummy Southern Tier Pumkining Beer!

The first batch of tile is getting laid. It's going to be a long process, but will be worth it.

League Night
Another great night of league. It's coming to a close...will miss my Wednesday nights at Red Hawk.

Tuesday, October 14, 2014


Had to go with a bit of "summer"...made a Salty Chihuahua.

Lots of Golf
With the temperature under 40 degrees, we teed it up at Common Grounds for the final tournament in 99.5 The Mountain's golf tour. We scrambled, came up a little short, but had a great time. We had to stick with our 3 & 3 beer combo, but the course didn't have coolers on the cart...hence the plastic bag with ice...real classy! ;)

After getting back into Castle Rock, Ally and I decided to jump on here at Red Hawk for another 18. Glad I did...shot a 76!! The weather and fall colors were beautiful!

Back at The Ridge today for beer, brats and golf. We were so hopeful that this year would be better than last year. Well, we got our wish for a small amount of time...then the crap rolled in! Staying warm today required multiple layers. Needed a good jacket with thumb-holes to keep down my sleeves...maybe my next jacket purchase.

Annual Walk
Today was the Kit Carson County Hospital's annual Breast Cancer Awareness Walk. This is the third year that we've attended the event. We missed having Kelly there, but it was great to see other family and spend time at home in Burlington. Along with our usual "Team Tomes" flowers, I decided to make us some pink tutus this year. We walked in memory of our Aunt Julie Tomes. She would love all of her grandsons! We miss you!!

Posing with one of Uncle Vince's new cars...#testdriveforthecure

Fall Golf

We got rained out yesterday and today was on the chilly side. It ended up being a beautiful morning on the course. We were the first group out so it felt like we had the entire course to ourselves. Everything seemed so clean and fresh...with the clouds and fall colors it was great!

Later in the day I made my way home to Burlington for the Breast Cancer Awareness Walk.

Highway 86...more scenic then I-70 which helps keep me awake. 

They were doing construction on several bridges. In place of the token "stop sign guy" they have several portable stoplights. This was the first time I remember seeing these, but I guess they are more popular then I thought.

We were hopeful that we get a full 18 in before the storm set in, but that didn't happen...only made it 9. The colors were beautiful...hope they make it a little longer!

Fall Colors
With the floor work, it had been a couple of days since we had been out to the course and it was amazing how much the leaves had changed in just that amount of time. LOVE THEM!

Tuesday, October 7, 2014


Loving the new hardwoods...just not the fact we were four boxes short!! My office will be on hold for a few more weeks. :(

Monday, October 6, 2014


Pink & Orange
With the new hardwoods put in today, had to find something to do...decided to make my pink tutu for Breast Cancer walk in Burlington this coming weekend. I think it turned out great. 

And the evening was capped off with a gorgeous sunset!

Busy Day
"Buster" was back for some tomatoes and a short visit this AM. Enjoyed a round of golf at Beardance...front nine MUCH more than the back nine. Enjoyed watching the Broncos' victory and finished the demo for our hardwoods going in tomorrow.

Fall Golf
We had beautiful weather for golf today. 

My sister mentioned that Firestone Walker was at the GABF...I didn't have a ticket, so decided to enjoy one of their brews at home.

Friday, October 3, 2014


Found the recipe for the "Ginger Pumpkin Bourbon Fizz with Cinnamon Sugar" drink online and loved it!! Perfect way to kick-off fall break!

Halloween Decor
Love my sneaky bison!! I might have to get a little crafty over break.

It's October
Saw the #pinkpower segment on the Today show and decided to remember Aunt Julie. More pink pics coming next weekend from the Burlington Breast Cancer Walk.

We managed to make it the full nine tonight. Early thunderstorm came through...great sunshine came out...fog rolled in. You've got to love fall golf!
