Friday Photos: the view from here

*Update 2/9: sorry if you stopped by yesterday when I posted this but the photos weren’t showing up — kind of defeats the purpose of Friday Photos. Here it is again. ๐Ÿ™‚

The alarm went off at 4:30am and there has been no coffee, so I can’t really be held responsible for the content of this post. ๐Ÿ˜‰

It’s my annual “beeย my valentine” trip to Denver — where we’ll bake sweet treats, spend a crafternoonย making valentines, and hopefully sneak out of the hive for a girls’ night with my BFF.

But first, a week in photos…

I joined Vine this week. It’s kind of like Twitter and Instagramย got together and had a cool kid named Vine. Short (6 second) videos that show up on your stream. Thinking some quick tutorials could be fun, or just documenting gluten-free goodness around Milwaukee and while traveling.

Check out my debut video of my long time friend of the blog, Quinlin, and his review of Grandma G’s Monster Cookies with ice cream — just click here.

He might just have an ongoing position around here. Little did he know when he showed up for Taco Night that he would be the star of the show.

And while Q devoured dessert…

I think the taco bar stole the show.

Sometimes Sunday afternoons call for a CafeChata. (Or a RumChata Chocolate works too.)

I know I say this often, and I’m not trying to rub it in, but I have THE best friends, family, and co-workers when it comes to being supportive of my gluten-free life style. I’m truly blessed and offer up the praises to them because some folks can’t even get their own parents to get the gluten-free thing, which always saddens me, and I have a whole team of people cheering me on.

Yesterday my supervisors treated our staff to a pizza lunch in appreciation for our work — the beginning of the semester in the post-secondary world can get a little crazy, and they wanted to show their gratitude. Sweet huh? Even sweeter was the fact that they got me my own GF pizza. From a separate pizza place that carries gluten-free crusts, VIA on Downer. (Thanks Amy & Shannon for ALWAYS including me — it means the world to me. From M&M’s and popcorn at every meeting to never forgetting to bring the labels, you’re the best!)

Yesterday looked like someone shook the snow globe all.day.long.

Which meant a warm beverage was needed in order to brave the storm to run errands. (but it also meant time with my guy, which was long overdue, and it was fun to cruise around in his new truck and not worry we won’t make it through the intersection, which is usually the case with Little Civ.)

Time to wrap this up, we’re landing — hello, Denver. Nice to see you again.
Have a JOYful weekend!
xoxo
