Scarlet and I have been living the easy life for the past two weeks again. Jon's company flew us to Colorado because Jon had been stuck there for so long. So I spent 2 lazy weeks in a hotel room eating out for every meal, enjoying the sights (by the way Colorado is so beautiful!), and doing a whole lot of nothing. It was oh so very nice.
The best part about it was this hotel cafe we discovered. Now I'm one of those people who is super annoyed when a hotel doesn't provide free breakfast. I need my breakfast, but I don't really need a whole production. A simple bowl of cereal, maybe an english muffin on the side, I'm one happy camper. But our hotel did not have this little luxury. Instead they had a Swedish cafe built into it. And lets just say I have found two new love of my life's - pierogis and peach waffle boats.
So Pierogis look a whole lot like potstickers but they have strawberries or this really good vanilla cream cheese stuffed inside. They fill the plate with them and top them with whipped cream and cinnamon. Delicious took on a whole new meaning. Of course they were just one step down from the waffles shaped like long ovals filled with the vanilla cream cheese filling stuff and topped with peach jam and whipped cream. Mmmmmm.
We actually had some crazy eating experiences while we were there. We were in Boulder for most of the time which is an absolutely beautiful city... but a little nuts too. For example, every other person had dreads. Not kidding, we actually saw a guy who was totally balding, you know just had the hair rim behind the ears left, who had dreads. Super disturbing... Not only that, EVERYTHING in Boulder is organic, tofu, or soy. And as a meat eating pesticide, growth horomone eatin fool, I'm not sure I totally fit it. Also almost every baby I saw was wearing cloth diapers. Jon suggested we give them a try. I agreed whole-heartedly, assuming of course that he would take over all diaper laundering duties. We got back to the pampers pretty quick.
After that, we spent a weekend in California while Jon participated in a corporate challenge. So he got to play volleyball and run relay races for a whole work day on the beach and we still got paid for it. We also got to go to the beach for the first time this summer. Scarlet really enjoyed herself. Of course I"m not sure how much sand she actually swallowed, but hey, sand isn't that bad for you right?
We got back late Saturday night and crashed. I realized the next morning that my cell phone was dead and I needed to charge it, only to discover my cell phone was no where to be found. We don't have a house phone so when Jon jetted back to Colorado I was left completely cut off from the outside world... except for internet of course. I turned the apartment upside down looking for it, driving to two different t-mobiles trying to figure out what I should do, only to finally find it an hour ago under the refridgerator. How did my cell phone get under my fridge you ask? We may never know...
