Since our flight didn't leave til afternoon, we had a lovely morning sleeping in and taking our time... We were packed the night before and ready to go - and while it was relaxing, I think we were both chomping at the bit to get on the road!
At the airport, I had a funny experience. We were sitting at our gate, with a half hour to go, and I was playing on my phone, looking at Facebook. I noticed one of my ex-boyfriends, from my college years, was also posting on Facebook from an airport... We starting messaging back and forth and surprise(!) we were in the same airport - so we met up. Ha ha ha. My hubby got to meet my ex. Then our flight got delayed, so we ended up chatting for over an hour. I thought it was fun - I'm happy to know he is well and has a good life! You just never know what can happen at an airport...
Our flight was uneventful and pleasant - I think I kind of like flying Frontier Airlines... I haven't had any problems with them yet! AND they serve warm chocolate chip cookies - can't beat that!
When we got to Denver, we took a shuttle to the hotel - with about ten other people going to other hotels... And our flight got in during the early part of rush hour, so that was a bit long - but a great way to see the city before heading to the hotel! Our hotel - The Warwick - was in a quiet neighborhood, close to the fun parts of the city - perfect. And we got upgraded to a suite - beautiful!
(The view from our room... Nice, huh?)
About an hour after checking in, my friend Morgan, and her boyfriend, John, picked us up for dinner. They took us to a fun Mexican restaurant, "Lime." Good food, fun conversation - it was nice being with them for a short time! (It was a work night for them, so after dinner they headed home - I'm so glad they made the time to hang out with us!)
After they left, the hubby and I went for a walk down 16th Street Mall in Denver - so fun! We were worried it would be pretty quiet on a Wednesday night, but that was not the case! Street artists and performers, loud and crazy restaurants and bars, beautiful buildings and parks - we had a lot of fun exploring! (My favorite was the bagpipe player, playing the theme from "Star Wars"!) We ended the evening at the "Yard House," a bustling bar (with a LOT of tap beers!) - great service, fun atmosphere, and a patio outside. A lovely way to end the evening in Denver!

1. Traveling with the hubby - so fun.
3. Good to know an old boyfriend is well.
4. Chocolate chip cookies.
5. Plenty of time to read on the plane.
