climbin’ rocks

SUCH a fun day.  It was so nice to get outside and do some climbing in Boulder today.  We really don’t get out to climb + hike as much as we should.  No excuse!

I wanted to thank ALL of YOU for all of the amazing well wishes about Chris getting a job.  We really appreciated each + every comment.  We couldn’t be happier or more excited for this next adventure in our lives.  :) 

Okay…the day started out with 3-min oatmeal cookies.  Actually I would say these take a few minutes longer.  There are quite a few ingredients to grab + measure and whatnot, but still a quick, easy breakfast.

Organic strawberries were on sale yesterday…2lbs for $5.99!  I stocked up and cleaned and froze a bunch because they are cheaper than frozen bagged strawbs.  mmmm
