Mariana Wagner And Denver Traffic

We had lunch to day with a friend from ActiveRain, Mariana Wagner.

Mariana set up a lunch date with us at Beau Jo's Colorado Pizza. (Great pizza by the way.) It's always so nice to meet someone you've developed a relationship with on the Internet. It's like meeting an old friend for the first time. :) I still can't believe that husband of hers decided to go to a closing instead of eating lunch with us. I'm sure we had a better time.

It was great to meet her and her two sons. Now, what was NOT so great was the ridiculous traffic we ran into as a result of our detour South of Denver. Who knew Denver had such horrific traffic. It was like being back in Los Angeles. There was no accident... just traffic. It took us 40 minutes to go 13 miles. Nice!

So, we're a bit behind schedule now, but at least I've got a broadband signal.

Mariana, thanks for setting up the lunch!

Whoo Hoo! How cool to meet up with you and your awesome family!! I hit horrendeous traffic, too. Ick.
We DEFINITELY had more fun than Derek did (even with the traffic...)!
Next time, WE will make the trek out west.

Mariana... come on out! Again, it was just great to meet you in person!

Oh man!!! that is so awesome that you got to meet Mariana! I didn't even know this blog existed if it weren't for her.
Where have I been?

Ines!! Welcome... yes, it was great to meet Mariana and her two boys. And now we're staying at Julie Ferenzi's house. She and Rocky have become very close friends and I obviously adore her, so it's doubly good! Wish we were driving through Florida!

Jeff - it's so awesome to become friends from someone that is so far away and so close at the same time. Keep enjoying that trip and I love that you are doing this.
