2015 Colorado Beer Fest, YouTube & Snow Storm

 First of all, I wanted to say that my prayers and my thoughts have been with the people in Paris.  I am still in shock about it.  It is so hard to comprehend why and how the world is full of people who are capable of good but also, horrific extraordinary things such as this.  #prayersforparis

On a happier note, hello guys... How are you?  I know it has been a little while since I have posted on the blog.  To be honest, I have been pretty busy these days.  I literally have two semesters left of school and as you can imagine, the homework and project demands have been crazy.

I did want to hop on here and share a few fun things we have done in the last few weeks.

  Let's see... Right! Joseph and I attended the 2015 Colorado Beer Festival in Colorado Springs.
This was our second year attending the event.  I have to say that I enjoyed it this year more than last, simply because they added kombucha and cider to the mix.  I am not a beer drinker but Joseph is, so I appreciated these two additions for sure!  I had a whopping 4oz of pumpkin cider, 2oz of blue moon Horchata, and about 16 oz of kombucha. We were there for about three hours... left sober, guys, left the venue sober! 
Even if you are not a beer drinker this is such a great way to try out seasonal Colorado made drinks.  Joseph's side of the family will be coming down for Christmas this year and we wanted to stock up our garage fridge with some Colorado festive beer and cider.  

Also, this is an awesome "date day" idea to do with your hubby or boyfriend! Of course, make sure to drink responsibly or have a designated driver if you are planning to try all the BEER.

Even though I have been MIA from the blogger scene lately, I have managed to record a couple of videos for my YouTube channel. 

I filmed my last Farmers Market Haul...
Check them out! I hope you guys enjoy and find them helpful.

Anyway, have you seen the weather news?  Some areas of Colorado were hit with a crazy storm yesterday.  We got our fair share of snow and wind yesterday.
No school or work for us yesterday or today!  We spent our day shoveling and treated ourselves to some delicious hot cocoa after.

How's the weather in your neck of the woods?  Are you excited for Thanksgiving next week? What are your plans for the day?  Let me know below...
