This little girl was SO excited about her flag while we WAITED and WAITED!!
Ray Rivera, the Colorado State Director, who we hung with back in the day in Iowa...almost a year ago...out to kill some time.FINALLY...the man himself! He was late because he was on a call discussing the bail out plan...which did not pass this day (9/29).
but he told us why it would eventually...and why he HAS to be the next president!!

a VERY YUMMY edible arrangement from my office (with a McCain card as well...they were pretty proud of themselves) a fun sushi dinner out with Sam...with some green tea ice cream and candleThen the arrival of my friend Jen!! I found this for sale sign the night she was coming in and it made me laugh...the realtor is Jennifer Pollock...my friend...Jennifer Pawlak! :)
Saturday we went to Boulder and I showed her some of the sights Then we found this theater where you can do dinner and a movie so we went to see The Women with my friend Natae too and we got the massive margarita...definitely had to share!
Then we stopped by Little Ceasars to see my sister and had to of course take advantage of the Crazy Bread and photo op with the guitar! Jen rocking her Colorado hair! :)
It was a great birthday!! Now only 10 more years until another big birthday...but at least Sam's is coming soon!!

And we had these AWESOME bookshelves installed by one of my dad's friends. I love them and have always wanted something like this for all of my books! As you can see I had quite a few to fill it up already! And I got a few new fish out of the deal!! That's Leo Tolstoy on the bookcase and in a bowl on the bottom shelf of the coffe tables we have 3 other little guys James, Ezra, and Scott...all named by Sam.
