I had another wonderful weekend. I know I had said we wouldn't be going anywhere but we did. Scott donated money to Colorado Public Radio last November so they sent us a card to use around town. Most of it is restaurants 2 for 1 things. We haven't used it at all! Scott thought it would be fun to try some of the places on it. We picked ... Billy's Gourmet Hotdogs

It was good -corner of Larimer and Broadway in Denver  I had a Tijuana dog. Scott got a chili dog. We shared a corn dog and a basket of garlic fries. I would go again - it's nothing fancy. They have a nice porch (it was snowing so we didn't use it)
After we ate we went to Larimer Square - LOVE this street - they have lights over it and lovely shops. My favorite (and it's where we went) is The Market
The Market

Larimer Square

bakery section of the Market

red velvet cupcake, German chocolate, California cappuccino and cafe au lait 

inside the Market
This place is wonderful - you can have tea, coffee or a variety of other beverages. They have baked goods, deli-type items. You have to walk around first and take a look. You can buy loose leaf tea and coffee beans. Scott got a California cappuccino which I had never had before - it is espresso with sweet condensed milk - oh my!! The cupcake was OK - cream cheese frosting - nothing spectacular but the German chocolate? Oh my, I believe the frosting is homemade - so rich and fabulous!! Mom and I have a date to go there in April!!
It was enchanting because it was snowing - there were pretty lights outside - great company and delicious food.
Saturday we had 6 or 7 inches of snow. Scott and I moved an armchair and footrest to the craft room. He carved our new signature stamp (for letterboxing) and I stitched. We listened to our books on tape and drank tea (later switching to hot cocoa with peppermint schnapps!!) It was a wonderful weekend and I certainly did NOT want to return to work!!
Have a good week all!! Kiss the ones you love and tell them you love them.


  1. Love hot dogs. Love cake. Love fancy coffee drinks. Sounds perfect to me.

  2. What another nice week-end. Since I love any kind of coffee, that place sounds delightful!

  3. I did kiss you and tell you I love you already... but I'd do it again. Smooches! Me
