Can You Believe I Didn't Dance Too?

I was a chaperone at JR's Cotillion tonight.
I had strict instructions from him, which basically all boiled down to that I wasn't allowed to let anybody know we were related. 

I wish I had gotten to do Cotillion as a girl, it looked so fun. I don't know how to do any of the dances they were doing, but I'd love to learn.  You could tell the kids were actually enjoying themselves. 

JR did let me get a few pictures with him before we left the house. 

Reed ran over and jumped into the picture too. 

I took my heals off to show that he's just a smidge taller than me now...not that that's hard.

Reed says he'll let me come to his Cotillion and dance with him...I think he might change his mind in the next few years. 

JR told me that I did a good job not embarrassing him and that nobody knew who I was.

Open House Sports Report

Jason and I went to open house at JR's middle school last night.  The broadcast team did the announcements, and JR gave his sports report.

I usually don't decorate for Halloween this early, but I have a girls' trip coming up next weekend (YAY!) so I went ahead and got the black cats and pumpkins out.   

It's always better to decorate too early than too late!

JR texted me this picture on Sunday.
It said "Grandpa met Trump!"

Grandpa Gary used his winning personality to land himself a picture with "Don" as he now calls him.

Gary told Donald that he was "really impressed with his sons" and then they had a quick conversation about the NRA, which is how the picture got taken in the first place. 

And by the way, I had no idea "Don" was so tall!   Gary is 6'1".

It was Freezing There, Heat Index of 107 Here

Jason and I were invited to Telluride for the weekend, so we snuck away on Thursday and came back yesterday.  It was a fun weekend, and we learned just how out of shape we are when we went on a hike.

Here we are about 1/4 of the way up, I've shed my jacket but still have on my long sleeves.

After panting uphill for another hour, we made it to 10,000 feet.  
(You can see we stripped off another layer!)

We were supposed to be in Telluride for the Blues and Brews Festival.  
As I like to say, "I'm a festive girl, just not a festival girl."  

I only went to the festival for about 10 minutes.  Here's documentation that I was there.

We got to eat at all our favorite restaurants and do all the things we like to do.

The only bummer to the whole weekend was that I only saw the inside of the Denver airport and downtown from the sky.

Social Media Darlings

I found this on Facebook and JR found it on Instagram.

Both ends of the front row belong to me.

Latest From Fashion Week

Remember when this child loved to accessorize and carry purses.

At least he still likes the idea of fine jewelry.  

Even if it is a baby lizard earring.
