Time for Vacation Shenanigans!

I just have to say that I am crawling out of my skin with excitement today! How on earth will I make it through a whole work day when my Colorado vacation extravaganza begins at 5 p.m.?!

Yup, that's right friends! I am beyond excited to roadtrip with future hubs and friends to Colorado for an amazing weekend. We've done it for the last 3 years and it's always a blast. We always go out during the Great American Beer Festival, since Adam is a craft beer snob connoisseur, and it's such a great time!

We're getting smarter over the years, and have learned to make it a true vacation. Both Adam and his best friend Sean went to college in Colorado, so we love staying with Sean's amazing parents (they're complete crack-ups!) and seeing so many of our friends.

Not to mention Colorado is stunning in the fall.

But tonight will be fun! We're getting the heck out of dodge right after work, and I brought lots of car activities per the usual! And the boys may laugh/scoff at my ridiculously oversized suitcase, but hey - a girl has got to look good on vacation - can I get an amen?!

Before we know it, we should arrive around 1 a.m., get some good rest, and then the adventures can commence in the morning!

.:: Weekend Preview in Photos ::.

Can't wait to stop in CO Springs and see some of our favorites.... up into the mountains to see the gorgeous Aspens and go hiking...

...head to Denver for beer fest 2012...
(aka: Adam's concept of how heaven will be one day)

...where shenanigans may or may not occur...

{ GABF Trips 2010 + 2011 }

I vow to actually document our awesome vacation with photos! I WILL get better at remembering. Promise.


Other fun little highlights I am looking forward to...

+ morning walks with Adam
+ telling stories in the car
+ seeing The Perks of Being a Wallflower
+ going on a brewery tour in Denver with our crazy beer fanatic friends
+ brunching with Adam's cousin
+ wearing the cute outfit combos I packed (thank you Pinterest for your ideas!)
+ relaxing/mellow Saturday with open plans
+ trying new restaurants
+ spending some time at GABF trying to find the brewery
who had the beer last year that tasted like a blueberry muffin (Ha! SO GOOD!)
+ coffee in my PJs while gazing at the gorgeous mountains
+ just simply being on vacation stinking ready for 5 p.m.

Anybody else want to join us?
We can pick you up on our way out of town! ;)
