Saturday brought a gorgeous, 78 degree day.  What better way to spend it than outside.  Even better, at the golf course.  I’ve played golf off + on since I was pretty young.  My dad is an avid golf player and taught me most everything I know about the game.

I haven’t played in a few years, but it’s always fun to go out for a round of 9 holes.  When you haven’t played in awhile, 18 holes can be a bit frustrating.  9 is perfect!

We walked + carried our bags for exercise.  Definitely a good workout, hauling the clubs around.

Grandpa Peter, got a little crazy with his pull cart.

I shot pretty well, considering how long it had been since I last played!  For the most part, everything went where I aimed, but not always too far. ;)

Couldn’t ask for a prettier day.

For dinner, we headed to one of our favorite Old Town spots, Crown Pub.  We eat here pretty frequently, and haven’t had a bad experience yet.  Although there are only a few veggie options, they are all stellar.  Especially the King’s Curry.  It is full of veggies + the sauce is phenomenal. 

We dined with crazy Peter, Michelle + Devon.

I ordered the soup of the day, which was wild rice and mushroom.  It turned out to be one of the best soups I’ve ever eaten.  I also ordered the house salad, which is topped with a lot of fresh veggies.  Their salad dressings are also amazing.  Yesterday, I chose the charred shallot + basil creamy vinaigrette.  Delish!

Nice night out with the huz!

I think I finally caught up on sleep from when my mom was here.  Today, I was off to the gym by bike, and had a great workout.  Then, I headed to Pat + Natalie’s house to do a maternity photo shoot.  I’m trying to start a people-photography business and wanted to use Pat + Nat as test subjects.  Although extremely different from food photography, it’s a fun + rewarding new challenge.  Posing people is not easy!  I spent about 2.5hrs photographing.  We tried a handful of different scenes + outfit changes.  It was so much fun and Natalie was glowing.  Pat + Nat cannot wait to be parents, and I cannot wait to become an Aunt!!

I’m only about 1/2 way done editing and will have more to show soon, but here is one of my favorites so far!

This week is INsanely busy!  Natalie’s baby shower, that I’m planning, is Tuesday evening.  Monday + Tuesday will be full of prepping food + decorations.  I can’t wait!  Also, late Monday night, Eric + Kelsey arrive in Ft. Collins.  Not for a vacation, but to LIVE here!!  Eric is a good friend of ours from Charlotte.  He was the one that let me run my granola bar business out of his house!  I wasn’t able to run it out of ours, with the dogs.  Right before we moved to Colorado, Eric + Kelsey met and started dating.  The 4 of us hung out, practically everyday before we left.  Anxiously awaiting their arrival!

Okay…one more photo… :)
