Ah, it's the life.

Took my kiddies to the local roller rink and had a fabulous time. I taught them how to skate backward AND how much fun a conga line can be on skates. :)

Ze weekend.

I had a glorious weekend with some much missed friends that included ice cream, delicious food, hikes, hot springs, Mumford and Sons, and lots and lots of catching up. I wonder all the time how I would even survive here in NM without my little pockets of home that come and visit me. I have the best, most kindest people in my life. 

BFF glamour shots.

Hot damn, I've got some swoon-worthy friends.

 1. I voted early!!! Whoop whoop!!
 2. Taking my kiddies on a hike is not complete until they pose for a hamball photo.
 3. And, a well stocked fridge is a very welcomed side effect of having visitors. THANKS LANIE!

Sometimes, when you eat salads all the time, and they're good and simple, you get used to them. They fill your belly and you're content. But then one day something comes along and all the sudden you're eating salads with avocado and bacon and pears and peaches and hot sauce and cucumbers and tomatoes. And they're delicious and you lick your plate clean. This is the only way I know to explain how lovely it was having a friend again to take photos with. Also, these photos are so damn hip, my brain hurts. I apologize.

And now the "Seriously Kylie, can't you contain yourself for one whole day and not make a freak of yourself? Yah weirdo! " photos:

The serious photos:

 Holy Moly, the ABQ balloon festival was straight out of a Dr. Seuss book. Bizarre. Whimsical. I just kept thinking how beautiful the world would be if 100 years ago we decided to invest technology in balloon travel instead of cars. And what does cloud camo look like? And what do these balloon enthusiasts do for day jobs? It was fun being a tourist this weekend because I definitely wasn't the only one. It seemed for a 10 mile radius of the park everyone was running around like fools trying to get the best view of the balloons. Cars were parked only half way off the street. People were running around in pajamas. Cars were going 5 mph in a 35 mile an hour roads. And when the balloons started dropping, sailing just barely by the roofs of houses and buildings, all hell broke loose and cars started darting to follow the balloons to their landing places. Which were any flat surface. Seeing a hot air balloon land in a Target parking lot, and then a dentist's porch, and then a neighborhood street was a fantastic end to a bizarrely beautiful weekend.

Little Miss Blueberry.

This getup happened organically. As in I didn't plan to look like a blue oomph-loompa and then ride my minty teal dream of a bike around town making a spectacle of myself. It's a natural gift of making myself look like a weirdo.

 The best sunset watching spot in NM is only 20 minutes from my house. Can you say LUCKY?
