Dear Annie

Dear Annie, 
I know that you're moving away to bigger and better things, like spending your summer in Swaziland with Give Hope, Fight Poverty, and the incredible kids you've come to love there, but I'm still going to miss you. Especially when you don't come back in the fall, and I can't call you to go running, and kick my butt at Red Rocks, or go see a sappy chic flick on a Friday night. And I'll miss your stories, and Tylie, and all the crazy, random things we've done. However, I'm grateful for the circumstances that brought us together, and those heartbreaks and late nights that made us even closer. Thank you for being beautiful, inside and out, and for making me laugh, always. Especially in these photos. And I can't wait to see you again, where ever that may be!

Happy Friday, dear readers. I hope you have the best weekend!

The City of Roses

 Last weekend in Portland, Oregon, was wonderful, and exactly what I needed. Highlights included tons of fabulous food, including Voodoo Donuts, a waterfall, and the International Rose Test Garden, pictured here. Portland is the City of Roses, and they were almost all in bloom. Hooray for perfect timing! Thank you, Katie and Noah, for the photos, and the wonderful weekend!

Also, Happy Birthday to The Champagne & The Stars! I can't believe it has already been a year since I started this blog. Thank you for all of your support!

Eat to Educate

From now through June 7, 2013, stop by and see Kathy Gietl at A Taste of the Philippines, my favorite food cart on the 16th Street Mall in Denver. The cart is located on 16th Street, between Stout and Champa. 

Purchases during Happy Hour, from 3-5pm, Monday through Saturday, make you eligible to be entered to win an hour-long massage or a $100 gift certificate to play paintball. Kathy is also generously donating $1.00 from each of these purchases to Give Hope, Fight Poverty, an organization dedicated to empowering and educating orphaned and at risk children in Swaziland. Find out more about the event here

Kathy's food is as awesome as her personality. I hope you give it a try!

Thanks to Annie for taking the photos, and Annie and Kathy for organizing the event!

Red (Hot) Pants

Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend, and a great Memorial Day. Thank you to our troops, and especially those who have given their lives in their service. I got back from Portland last night, and can't wait to post photos from my trip. It was such a fun weekend! These photos were taken in Denver before I left, but check out my instagram @jkschroeder for a preview, and check back this week for the posts!

Yeah Sapphire

Hooray for Friday, and a wonderfully long weekend! I'm off to Portland, Oregon to visit one of my very best friends of the past ten years, and I can't wait to get there. It's supposed to rain all weekend, but that hardly matters when you haven't seen someone in a year. Are you going away for the weekend? Or do you have any particularly fun plans? I'd love to hear them! Have a great one, and I'll see you Tuesday!

The Washington monument is under construction, as you can see from the photos, but Lincoln was wonderful in all of his glory. We also saw the WWII Memorial, Vietnam War Memorial, and the Korean War Memorial. I love Washington, D.C.!

I prefer to travel in closed toe shoes. All the better if they incorporate studs. And are pink. The flight attendant thought they were fun, too!

For those of you who loved the top from yesterday's post, it's now on sale here
