I added some peppers and hummus into the mix just for kicks.
The Mr. enjoyed every morsel
After dinner we headed up for quick hike before it got dark.
This trail is up cottonwood canyon, this place is absolutely breathtaking in the fall! And this trail runs directly next to a river. It was beautiful.

It was a good night! 

No time for the Q & A tonight.. will have to continue in the morning!

..Something to think about..

I came across this site today and it really hit me hard. Like a smack in the face. 

click on the link.. just do it :)

I recommend that you read this and let me know what you think about it. 
To me, It touches my heart on so many personal levels, We all know somebody or maybe its ourselves that we see it.. Its the Quest of perfection.. Everyone has something to hide.. Don't be afraid to be you and face your fear no matter what anybody else thinks.. Its not their life its yours.
 YOU are in control and only YOU can make change to be the best you can be.
