The rest of colorado

i promised a finished recap of my colorado trip, so here it is! (see the first recap) (this one is slightly long and picture heavy also)

 after i finished the blogging on wednesday, i ate a sandwich and chips (unpictured) and then proceeded to nap. naps are acceptable on vacation right? that night me and the hubs werent too hungry and really didnt feel like going anywhere. so we ran down to a gas station so he could get some energy drinks, and i grabbed a lunchable and a oreo ice cream. by this time, all the eating out and not eating any veggies except french fries (does that count?)  had takin a toll on me and im feeling quite... blech.

on thursday i decided to get out the dang hotel. so i went and found the most expensive mall ever. i did some bargain shopping as always, got a shirt for 14 bucks and 8 bucks. woot. but then one of those dang hair straightener people sucked me in and convinced me to buy a new straightener (my chi is almost 10 years old and hasnt been working that great lately, i knew it was time for a new one but, not while i was vacation) i kept walking away and saying no until she gave it to me at the lowest price possible. #winning

i was still at the mall around lunch time, so i stopped in at the cheesecake factory. can you believe ive never eatin at one?? i ordered four cheese pasta (id been craving pasta all week!) and then i got a reeses cheesecake. holy yum!

no worries, i didnt eat it all. i ate half and brought the rest back to split with jamie. when i got back to the hotel, i napped. this was a good habit i picked up :) that night we decided we had one last night to go out to eat, so we went to a place jamie has been wanting to eat at. the tilted kilt. let me show you my reaction to this place...

this place was similar to a hooter or twin peaks. half naked girls everywhere. but oh well. the food was decent. i got the fish and chips and a margarita to help calm me down. :)

their garlic fries, were so. good.

after we ate we walked a little in the downtown area. walked through larimers square and a lil down the 16th street mall.

we didnt really stop in anywhere, just looked. cuz we had one more stop to make. :)

 when looking for places to eat online before we came, this place popped up as a go to place. and when we got there we had to wait in a long line for 15-20 mins. the ice was really good, though i didnt love the salted caramel peanut butter cup in the waffle cone as much as i did taste testing it. but i love ice cream, so i ate it anyways :)

the next morning was the last chance to do anything before we had to head to the airport to catch our 5:45 flight. so we went to the number one attraction: mount evans. this one was different than the rocky mountains. you basically drove up the mountain, with basically no stops along the way, and much scarier roads. as in we almost saw someone fall off the mountain (!) and then you had to hike up the last 1/4 mile to get to the top. this one wasnt as steep to climb, it was gradual so we made it up without being too worn out or out of breath. and the views were goreous!

when we got to the top, a ranger told us weather was coming, so we took our pics, took in the view, and headed back down. shortly after we got the car it started raining. so we timed that well.. we ate a sandwich i had picked up at target, wheat thins, and left over cheese cake on the way down the mountain. we then headed straight to drop off the rental car and head to the airport.

our flight wasnt delayed this time and we only had a to wait an hour or so for the flight. this flight was much better for me. i guess cuz i knew what to expect.

by the time we landed and got to our car it was 9:30. my bedtime. but we drove back the 2+ hours home with a stop to eat at jack in the box. cuz not many places are open at 10 to eat. we made it home around 12:15. we were so glad to be home!! our cat was glad we were back too :)

we took video of things, and lots of pictures too. my hubs is suppose to be putting together a video of our trip. ill be sure to share it once its done :)
