Laurie's Life (Denver Style)

See how our family is doing since moving from Cali to Colorado

Saturday, July 7, 2007


We are headed down to Albuquerque for the weekend to pick up my niece and nephew. I'd like to say that that's the sole reason we're going but really? My husband wants to gamble and I want to go to Trader Joe's. It's all about the priorities people.

I am very excited to have the kids though. My kids are thrilled that their cousins will be the first people we know outside of California that will have seen where we live. My nephew will love the fact that the street is full of boys his age. My son is just beyond excited that he'll get to play with his cousin "R" for over a week.

Now for that boring ass drive down there.

Wish us luck!

Have a great weekend everyone!

    Now, can I just say how jealous I am?
    Seriously, I want to go to NM soooo bad!
    Although at this point, i'll take a vacation to ANYWHERE!

    NM isn't as soul sucking as Utah. Every time I cross the border, it feels as if my soul is sucked right out. But NM is a close second. hehehehehe

    We lived in Santa Fe for a year and a half before we moved to our new home. I never claimed it as home. I always said my home was Colorado but Santa fe was just a "lay over".

    What a boring drive! Have fun at Trader Joes.

    Luck! And don't forget to take the tranquillizers to keep order on the trip. (doesn't matter who takes them except the driver)

    Driving from Dallas to Arizona via Albuquerque makes my eyes bleed,
    Texas is boring to drive through but not as boring as NM.
