Denver Deal: Free Days, Ski Rex, H&M, Taste of Colorado, Concerts and more
I don’t know about you, but I really could get lost in the special days that we have – ice cream day, be a friend day..I’d love to have a Gretchen is Awesome day. I think I might even be inclined to combine Gretchen is Awesome day with Hot & Spicy Day (which was Sunday). I’m not even sure what I might do to celebrate Gretchen is Awesome day – but I can tell you that it might include eating TandoorChef Indian yumminess! Oh YES! then I might travel over to TCBY (it’s one of my fave places) to try the flavor of the month (the blueberry pomegranite this month is pretty good – wish they’d bring back the Greek vanilla though). I would take in a family comedy show like Ralph Harris at Comedy Works South (all ages show on August 26th). And on Gretchen is Awesome day – I might go searching for a deal…or two…or three…
Taste of Colorado

American Girl doll patterns
Does one of your kiddos have an American Girl Doll? I know the clothes can seem almost as expensive (or maybe even more) than what I would spend on an outfit for my own daughter!

Plus you can get two more FREE patterns from the very same makers of the real American Girl Doll clothes when you subscribe to Liberty Jane Clothing newsletter!
