There are a few different ways to remove wallpaper, but the only real way to know for sure what you need to do, is to start getting into the project and figure out what you are dealing with!  Newer wallpaper that has a vinyl top layer tends to be the easiest to remove, so if that is what you determine you have, consider yourself lucky.  If you have got the old stuff, multiple layers, painted over wallpaper or an unfinished wall behind everything, you have quite the little project on your hands.  Ah but don’t fret, worst case scenario it’s really nothing that a sander, chemical remover-solution and a good scraper can’t get off.  Of course when things go down that path, you might also be looking at a few repairs to the wall as well.

Now that Thanksgiving is officially behind us, it is time to fully embrace the most wonderful holiday of all, Christmas!  In fact, this weekend was the most popular time for Santa’s elves to be busy at work decorating the houses in their neighborhoods and city buildings.  Thus creating the wonderful visual spectacular we all love and have learned to expect during this time of year. Whether you are into simple white lights and red ribbons, inflatable Mickey Mouse Christmas characters, or extravagant light shows with music and animatronics, one thing you can be sure of is an inflated energy bill.  So this December instead of increasing your carbon footprint even further, adorn your home with more eco-friendly holiday decoration options.

People in Colorado are known for being fit and healthy, even during the holidays if you can believe it!  In fact, one of the most popular ways for Coloradans to celebrate the season of giving is typically whatever charity race, marathon, or fun run is going on, and this Thanksgiving is no different!


Tomorrow all over Colorado, people will be running for a good cause, getting fit, and having fun while they do it.  Events like Turley’s Turkey Trot in Boulder and the Mile High United Way Turkey Trot in Denver have become local favorites over the years, but nearly every major city in Colorado now hosts some sort of Thanksgiving race.  You can still register for most of tomorrow’s races the day of the event, so it is not too late for you to consider

I took a drive today into Boulder and got some really cool shots of the Flatirons peeking out from behind some clouds. Every time I drive down South Boulder Road, I remember the first time I saw that view of the Rockies and how amazed I was by its beauty. After nearly 12 years, I still think the views I captured in the pictures below are some of the most gorgeous Colorado has to offer.

Are you looking for something really cool to do with the kids? I recently visited the WOW! Children's Museum in Lafayette with my 3 yr old son and it was blast! Located right near downtown Lafayette, this interactive museum has tons of activities that are educational and fun.


WOW! takes kids on a fun, hands-on journey that highlights things like reading, math, science and the arts. This place has everything from a pirate ship, a toddler beach complete with slide and sandbox, a pretend grocery store and bank, plus an outside play area. A couple of our favorites were the music room, the pulley chairs, the grocery store scanner and the huge bubble maker you can stand inside. You will also find a great sitting area to have a bite to eat, party rooms for
