What's Not to Love?

A few weeks ago Nick and I got some company from my beloved father in law. We have the best time when he comes to visit and one of our favorite things to do is go out to eat. Usually our choices are either wings or pizza and on this particular night, it wasn't only pizza we chose, it was the best kind of pizza around: Uncle's Pizzeria.  

If you ever visit Fort Collins without trying this pizza, you are a fool. 

My favorite: white tomato. ♥ yum.

After we stuffed ourselves and walked out of the restaurant we realized there was no way we would be able to head straight back to the car. The evening was too beautiful, the weather perfect, and Fort Collins just oh so wonderful for a little after dinner stroll :) If you didn't know it about me, I'm a sucker for walks. 

I mean, what's not to love?

Since evening one was a freaking blast and we don't get to show off Fort Collins much, we headed back to Old Town for evening two and began the night with some delicious shrimp and some dangerous happy hour margs. 

With our bellies once again full we leisurely strolled through down with Old Town as our final destination. We had decided that should we get the urge to stop in another bar on the be it. But no evening stroll is complete in Fort Collins without poking your head in the Cupboard (an amazing housewares store). Nick's absolutely favorite place in Fort Collins. I'm still in the love/hate relationship because all I do whenever I go in there is drool over the mint colored Kitchen Aid on display and all 12 brothers and sisters in their beautiful punchy bright colors. I waaaant one :[  

We absolutely couldn't refuse a rest stop on the outdoor patio at Lucky's where we sat outside, crunched peanuts and drank beer. 

(did I mention this was the greatest summer night in Fort Collins to date)

We were happily surprised to find that the Bohemian Nights, free music event was going on and so we parked it in Old Town for awhile enjoyed the band. 

 Eventually this little couple worked their way a few steps in front of me and I couldn't help but snap a photo of the husband holding his wife. They were dancing to the music and so affectionate with each other. Nick and I agreed we will definitely be that rockin' little couple in 60some years. Absolutely warmed my simple romantic heart. 


Cheers and thank you for being the great city you are, Fort Collins.

Hope you all had a good Monday. Mine was quite eventful and didn't do much good for my already crumpled faith in humanity. However, I out did myself cooking one of my specialties this evening - grilled cheese sandwiches + tomato soup - and forced myself out on a walk with Nick in this very cooling 70 degree weather, despite my annoying sinus issues. Thank you rain and get the fuck ooooutta here, allergies!
