Exciting News

Another week speeding by!  Hello Thursday and Good morning to you all 🙂

Zach and I had a great night last night — full of running, beer and wine, and good food.

One thing I do want to clarify:  I DID bring baby wipes to at least attempt to clean myself, and a change of clothes.  I didn’t force Zach to be seem with me THAT nasty and sweaty the ENTIRE night. . .


Anyway, after all that fun, we ended the night with the foam roller and some mindless TV. Highly needed!

Our marriage license returned from the state!  I literally have been like a kid at Christmas waiting for the license to get returned.  Checking out mail box everyday super excited, only to be let down! haha  When Zach told me it had come in yesterday, I literally jumped up and down for like 30 seconds.  If he wasn’t embarrassed by my post run look — he HAD to be embarrased after that, right?

We’re officially married everyone 🙂 YAAY!

Now I just have to wait for that tiny little issue of the Government Shut Down to begin the name change process — but hey, I’m excited 🙂

This Morning:

Of course,  I woke up this morning a little exhausted thanks to the late run and later than normal night. . . but either way I got up and hit the gym

Workout For the Day:  10 miles stationary bike + weights

Today weights included a hodgepodge of work, focusing on arms, but incorporating abs and legs as well.

  • Chest Press (machine)
  • Lateral Pull Down (machine)
  • Row (machine)
  • Incline sit ups
  • Plank
  • Bicep curls
  • Twists
  • Lunges
  • Side Lunges
  • Squats

I think that was everything?  I did 3 sets of 12 for each, with different weights ranging from 10 lbs to 30 lbs, to body weight for plank.  Like I said, hodgepodge, but it worked and got me nice and sweaty.

And now — it’s that time again.  Shower up and head into work.  I’ll be back later this afternoon with the Blog 101 recap.  🙂

Question of the Morning: 

It’s Official! We’re Married (well…kind of)

Did I get you with that title? 🙂

Ok. . . where’d I leave off this morning  . . .

After Zach and I fueled up with some delicious homemade juice, we hit the road on a very important mission.

To the Denver Court House for our marriage license!

We hopped on the Free 16th Street Mall ride to keep from struggling with downtown AM traffic and parking.

Us and about half of the neighborhood!

This was a really good idea on Zach’s part.  The walk to the bus is about 5-10 minutes, 15 minutes in transit, then another 10 minutes walking once you get off.  Not too bad, and no traffic head ache!

The Cap Hill neighborhood of Denver is one of our favorites, but this was the first time either of us had been to any of the actual government buildings.

Once we figured out exactly where we needed to be, it was easy peasy!

Well except the security line. . .

First, we didn’t put our stuff on the conveyor belt correctly.

Then Zach’s coffee cup spilt ON the conveyor belt

Then Zach set off the alarm multiple times trying to get through thanks to his phone and hidden pocket gems.

Hysterical.  We never have problems getting through TSA, but we made a mess of a mini security line today!  I guess we were anxious 🙂


Once we got past all that silliness, it was straight through to the County Clerk.

There were no other people in the waiting area when we got there, so we MUST have picked a good time to go.  Our number was called in less than 3 minutes, which is probably good because I had a SERIOUS case of the giggles.

Once we were called back, we gave Lisa, the nice woman who helped us, our passports and social security cards, then got to work.  She asked us both about

  • Full names
  • Place of birth
  • Current address/phone number
  • Parents full names
  • Parents place of birth

Both Zach and I stumbled on some of these questions, but it wasn’t an issue at all.

Just like that, 30 dollars later, we had paperwork in our hands.

We then held up our right hands, were asked to swear that everything was accurate and that our intentions were to marry, then literally said “I Do” and it was done 🙂

Kind of weird to say I do!  Felt VERY official!

We now have 35 days to make this party the real deal.  It just needs signed by our ordained official (Zach’s brother and best man), witnesses, and ourselves and we’re done!  Then it’s sent back in to the Courts, it gets recorded, and we get to live happily ever after!

Of course. . . we hadn’t even gotten to the train to head home yet and Zach decorated our license.

A little spilled coffee doesn’t make it un-official, right?

We are two peas in a pod 🙂

We got home really quickly and decided that we should take a second to celebrate the occasion.

We love Masterpiece!  It’s our go-to place for fresh, yummie sammies. I’ll have to do a full review the next time we go, it’s amazing.  It’s right at Central and 16th, so be sure to check it out if you’re in the neighborhood!

A nice brunch to relax and chat about the exciting morning 🙂

Picture 028

Turkey, swiss cheese and a fried egg on an english muffin for me.  It was delicious and HUGE.  I had to share about 1/4 with Zach.

It was the perfect way to cap off a really happy and exciting morning.

I look constipated or something with that smile. . . ?

I don’t even KNOW what he looks like 😉

Obviously, we couldn’t be happier 😉
