    Love the pics! I’ve had the DRY soda before, it’s my boyfriend’s favorite. You have to try their other flavors, like Lavendar and Vanilla Bean. Have fun on the Jersey Shore!

      I don’t like a lot of the choices she has made. I think under nmaorl circumstances Kim K is extremely stylish and often someone I will look to for style guidance because our bodies are so similar. (Large breasts, small waist, and big butt) But ever since she announced her pregnancy I have been wondering what she is thinking she isn’t choosing clothes that are flattering for her body. I sympathize though because I had a hard time dressing my body when I was pregnant. At the beginning I wore loose shirts and skinny jeans or leggings with a loose top and lots of sweaters. As I got bigger I started to wear more form fitting clothes to show my stomach off. I really can’t be too mad at her because I like the fact that she takes risks I just don’t think it always works. I think she needs to make a visit to Rosie Pope, I think Rosie could help.

    Wonderful photos of Denver! I work across the street from Civic Center Park. The summer food truck days are a blessing for my belly and a curse for my pocketbook. 🙂 Pinche Tacos are the bomb! I tried to replicate the cheese tacos, but they’ll never be as tasty as PT’s.

    i’m headed to boulder in a few weeks and can’t wait! most importantly – where did you get the donuts in the last picture?! they look amazing.

      I was wondering about the donuts as well – I just moved home to Boston from Boulder and couldn’t believe the disparity between the amount of donut places here (well, Dunkin Donuts, at least) and the almost complete lack in Boulder! I always had to go to Denver to find any but they were never particularly impressive. Those ones, however, look amazing! I guess I’m not surprised they’re from a special stand!

      Hey Colleen! We only got to spend a few minutes in Boulder but I LOVED it. You have to go to the most amazing kitchen store, Peppercorn. Check my response to Rachel (above) for the location of the donut stand. Have so much fun!!
