Who is ready to partay, Colorado style?!


We have a couple of special guests coming to visit Carronin and I in August. I have been a fan of their blogs since the dawn of the blogosphere or at least for the past year. The Smiling Infidel herself, the Elasticwaistbandlady or "Lasti-kins" for those who are in the know and Carrot Jello of Oinkle Doinkle fame! I know, I know! We are so lucky. We thought it wouldn't be fair to hog them for ourselves so we are planning a couple of Meet and Greets for anyone who would like to come.

The first one will be in Denver on August 17th. We will be meeting for lunch at a place yet to be determined. Amber that Crazy Blogging Canuck suggested an outdoor cafe in Boulder in a gorgeous setting or a restaurant right in the heart of downtown Denver where all the action is. Are you a little bit country or a little bit rock and roll? Attendees at this point include, myself, Carronin, Amber, Aubrey, Elastic, and Carrot.

The second one is a BBQ here at Casa de Payne on August the 18th around the lunch hour, kind of thing. To give you a little orientation on where Fruita is at; it is 4 hours drive from Denver and 4 hours drive from Salt Lake.
We would love to see you all. We missed the last blog get together. Life just got in the way:(
I hope y'all will come for a "do-over" here in Colorado and yes, pictures with Mike the Headless Chicken will be taken after the BBQ. If you are ready to partay Colorado style, I will update you by e-mail with the details! Two woots! "Woot! Woot!"

I am soooo jealous. Hope you have a blast!

Jennifer B. said...

Sorry. I'm never first. I got carried away.







But now I'm second too ;)
WAHOO! I'm a comment hog.

Nancy Face said...

Oh, how I wish I lived in Colorado! THAT SOUNDS AMAZING! Have a great time! :)

elasticwaistbandlady said...

And now I know that I need to buy a girdle and some Colgate White Strips. Can we come in costume? That way I can just cover my face with something and not have to worry about my Elvis Sideburns and curly-Q cheek hairs.

Jean Knee said...

aww Annie, you get to have all the fun.
just don't be gettin too cozy with elastic, remember I am her #1 stalker

nikko said...

Sounds so fun. I guess one of us needs to organize a Texas get together!

Dedee said...

Wow. I wonder if I can figure out a reason to go to Colorado. Especially for the BBQ! The headless chicken needs to be in my world!

Have a ton of fun!

Tori :) said...

Ooooh.... sound fun! I didn't realize you were so close to SLC. Let me see what I can do...

SoDak Angel said...

I'm working on it, seeing what I can do, would love to come....don't get your hopes up, but we will know in the next day or two. If I were there, my vote would be 16th street for lunch. Fun! Downtown is so Denver, you know.

Carrot Jello said...

Yes, costumes would be good. Good gravy. Now I'll have to get some new clothes, my eyebrows waxed, and paint my toenails. Then there's the whole, "How do I hide my girth?" question. Maybe Elastic and I could rent a siamese twin costume. What do you say Elastic? Hey, better yet, how's about sumo wrestler comstumes?

No Cool Story said...

I am Coming! I AM COMING!!
Woo hoo!! :D

Melissa said...

Google maps tells me that it would take 15 hours and 13 minutes to get to Denver...sigh... maybe next time!

b. said...

I am not waxing my eyebrows, but I may come in costume.
I am supposed to work that weekend but am willing to move heaven and earth to make it there. We'll see how much b.power I yield.

Carrot Jello said...

YAY! NCS and B.!!

compulsive writer said...

I'm with the b. team. We're trying to work it out.

When will you be back from Denver?

compulsive writer said...

(that's the amazing b. team.

compulsive writer said...

just trying to beat jennifer b.

Nanette said...

Only 4 hours! I thought it was much further! Sounds like fun!

Thoroughly Mormon Millie said...

I'm so excited that NCS is going!!!!

(and wishing I can go too)

elasticwaistbandlady said...

'Lastikins' makes me feel weird like I'm one of those ramekin dishes, only super elasticy-stretchy. or that I'm a munchkin.

Well, I guess I DO like to munch.

SoDak Angel said...

I'm going...I'M coming, Yip-Yip hooray! Uh-huh...Uh-huh *doing a happy dance* *doing it all by myself, and I don't care*

PJ said...

Sounds fun. Why doesn't anyone ever vacation in Arkansas? HAA! That made me laugh too!

We have The Spinach Capital of the World, Ya'll.

Happy blog-gathering.

Carrot Jello said...

Hey, what about your S.I.L.?

Annie said...

Hooray, the guest list is growing!

Work it out, y'alls! This partay is gonna be off the hook. In a mild mannered sort of way.

I am sure Rug's Bug will come.

Rug's Bug- Please bring your deep fryer to the partay.

Amber said...

I'm so thrilled to be a part of bloggin' party #1. Can't wait to see you again. ;-)

Stepherz said...

That's so great! I hope you guys have an awesome time!

Carrot Jello said...

Twelve days. TWELVE.

Thoroughly Mormon Millie said...

(sniffling)

Crap Happy Mama said...

I'd like to go too, but I'm scared of public toilets. Can I bring my own with me to lunch? Or will seeing my special super-industrial- strength-flush titanium potty at the restaurant table feel awkward for everyone?

SoDak Angel said...

10 days and a wake up! I am so stoked!

Suzanne said...

I may be able to come! I'll let you know as soon as I do! :)

utmommy said...

Blog get togethers are soo fun. I hope you guys enjoy.

Sad that I can't come.

Amanda said...

Sounds like so much fun!!! That weekend we will be in Bismark doing the temple thing. Hmmmm, unless I can talk Scott into going to Denver to go to the temple and see my Dad and go to the blog partay! Worth a try...

Ruggless said...

CJ not costumes, capes.. capes for all long flowing capes.

Carrot Jello said...

Tori :) said...

aimee / greeblemonkey said...

Bummer, too bad I am celebrating my hubby's birthday that day. He would be pissed if I missed it.

Suzanne said...

and sunglasses at night... :D

Carrot Jello said...

Isaura said...

Liam's Mom - Gina said...

Wow, all the popular gals are meeting up! What a hoot you'll all have! I am sure your sides will hurt from laughing so much this weekend! Have a blast!
