Bryan and I stayed at the castle hotel of Raddison...which is a hotel that just looks cool from the outside! The inside was fine, but nothing to rant and rave about. We even got chocolates in our room and sparkling cider. It was a fun time. The funny thing was that they had the temperature of the pool and hot tub switched. So the pool was HOT and the hot tub was like a pool temperature would be. So it was bizarre, but like I said fun. The next morning we went up to boulder, CO and had a tour of the Celestial seasonings plant. It was a free tour and very interesting to see how they make tea! And Bryan even learned what makes "tea" tea. It is a special plant that makes it the black, green, or white tea. The herbal teas, that are ok for LDS people to drink are just made out of herbs, like rose hips and hibiscus. it was fun to smell all the smells and see all the fun herbs and mints they put in. We even got to taste and type of tea we wanted and in doing so bought a couple of teas...herbal of course!
Then we went to the famous Pearl street mall, which by the way is 30 years old this week! We had lunch t Chipotle and then drove up the canyon and saw boulder falls. It was a nice relaxing day...
Bryan decided to surprise me and told me that he bought tickets to go see Little Mermaid at the buell theater. this is a new musical that is debuting here in Denver. It is supposed to be comparable to Wicked and will debut on Broadway this winter. That was quite a surprise!!! I am excited to go and in doing so need to find Kambria a "real" babysitter for the first time!!! We have tickets to go on a Thursday night and my dad works at the temple those nights and my mom and sister Tess are in a college class Thursday nights too...So anyone willing?
Another surprise was that Bryan got FREE tickets last night to go to the JOSH GROBAN concert!!!!!! yes I did say free!!! He called my up at 4:30 and asked if I wanted to go to a concert for free! i said sure what concert....JOSH GROBAN!!!!
So the story is that Bryan has been volunteering on Friday's at a prosthetic clinic and was chatting with one of the receptionists there about music. Turns out she really likes Josh Groban too and they got talking abut his concert. She kept asking Bryan week after week if he had gotten his tickets yet. Well he would keep saying no and so she said well if I have any extras I will give them to you...turns out she won back stage passes from a local radio station and so she had 2 extra tickets!!! so she called and gave them to him!!! Man we were STOKED!!! it was a lot of fun and amazing music!...LOUD but amazing. i eventually went to the bathroom and got some toilet paper to stuff in my ears so I could hear better. But the show was a lot of fun and one to remember!!! Here are our tickets!
So my surprises for Bryan were a toothbrush and some peanut M&m's...not so cool, but funny... I told Bryan i had a surprise for him and then let him think about it all night on tuesday. Then I came home from YW's and gave him his surprise...a new toothbrush, since he said he needed one, and none-the-less one that had a cool whitening feature...He did not think that was a very cool surprise. I let him believe it for a minute and then gave him the peanut m&m's! He said that was DEFINITELY the way to do it...that was the m&m's seemed really cool...well at least it was something fun!!!
