Happy Friday! I’m currently writing from beautiful Colorado Springs! I’ve got to say this is much prettier than Oklahoma. The mountains are gorgeous here, although nothing beats the Oklahoma sunsets. This week, my husband and I have been staying with his sister Bonnie (pictured above) and her husband. Bonnie and I work together for her father’s company. They’ve been so kind by opening up their home to us and showing us all the great local coffee shops, restaurants, nature sites, and of course boutiques. We took these pictures at the famous Broadmoor Hotel in The Springs. I’ve never been to a hotel this gorgeous in my life. If you’re ever in the area you’ll definitely want to check it out and if your pocket book is bursting at the seams, try staying a weekend there. It’s crazy beautiful and romantic.
Like I said, this past weekend Bonnie showed me around a few boutiques here and there. One place in particular she took me to was a stylish new shop called erbn Boutique. It’s where Bonnie picked up the duster she’s wearing in the photos above. Doesn’t she look gorgeous?! They have the cutest pieces and get new merchandise in DAILY!
In other news we’re loving Colorado but we’ve had a few set-backs this week. My husband and I planned on going backpacking for a few days around Telluride and 1 hour into the 5 hour drive our Subaru overheated. Luckily after it cooled down we were able to drive it slowing over to a car shop where they told us we blew a head gasket and it’d be $2300 and a few days to fix. Through the tedious process of determining what to do and how we would get home, my husband and I both came down with terrible colds that day. We’re just so thankful to have family to lean on during this tough week. I guess we’ll just need to have a re-do vacation!
