BLUEJEANS and fish......REPOST cause I just had to add a comment left for me...tee hee...




HELLO to all my sweet friends...

OOO, what a wonderful vacation we did have. A FULL week in the mountains of COLORADO...loved every single micro-second of it, too.
We were with cousins so being with family is ALWAYS a good start to a vacation.

Lots of fishing in the most beautiful ponds and streams.
I love fishing WITH A PASSION...... but only catching them. I DON'T eat them. MR. SWEET really enjoyed both catching and eating!!
Catching them is one of my life's little pleasures. We haven't many places to fish in our part of the country so this trip was such a treat.....
LOOKIE...I just caught one on my line...
YA'LL look at that fish and NOT my baggy fishin' jeans..!! I'm tellin' ya...these are my lucky fishing jeans !!!
EVERY fisherman has SOMETHING that is lucky....and my baggy jeans are THE luckiest !!
WOO HOOOO.....

oops...not sure if I even had a bra on here...:(
On a fishin' trip....who cares?
I caught these 4 in about 45 minutes...and my blood was pumping, too!! LOVED IT....
5 fish each day was the limit....so when we got our limit, we headed out for sightseeing...and shopping...
but THAT is for another post day....:O)

BLUE mountain flowers....just better than they have to be !!

*NOTE ADDED...Justine aka TINEY, left this precious and funny comment for me...
"Oh, I'm sorry, did you say you caught fish? I was too distracted by your sagging boobs and jeans to notice. Heeheeheeeeeeeeee!!"
YA GOTTA LOVE THIS GAL !! I SURE DO!!

Thanks to SMILING SALLY for hosting this yet another beautiful

BLUE MONDAY...

Oh fishing in a stream like that - what fun.

I love to fish in the pond behind our house...also will filet them and fry them - then enjoy eating them.

Glad you shared some of your vacation pics with us.

Theresa said...

Glad to have you back and that you were on vacation and not sick:) Hope you have a blessed day!!!!!!

salmagundi said...

Great blue Monday post!! And, look at all of those fish. Glad you enjoyed our mountains. I can say 'our', because us Coloradans take ownership in them - you know how we are!!! LOL Sally

Becky K. said...

Looks like a very good time.

My Grandad used to fillet the bluegill we would catch as kids, then my Grandma would fry them up for breakfast. I still don't like to eat fish...but that wasn't their fault.

The flowers are amazing.

Good morning BJ, I am so loving those photos of you today. I want to know who baits your hook. Yikes, I hate worms with a passion. Ok I know, I am such a girl!!! However, I would adore being by the stream just enjoying the beautiful location. I am soooo happy you had a wonderful trip. You look beautiful girl.

Hugs and love...Jeanne

Great catch, BJ!

Joyce said...

Certainly was a record for 4 fish in 45. The fish must have know it was a no bra day:) Oh and that Brownie pan is the cutest thing ever! I thought my kids were going to buy it for my BD last month but I was wrong and now I put it onto my holiday list for Dec. Santa better bring that pan or else this baker will be on strike:)

Hello Dearheart...

My friend...so happy that you got up to Colorado for a little R&R! There really isn't anything like spending time in the mountains and doing a little fishing! Loved your photos! We went up the Poudre Canyon (above Ft. Collins) to camp for the weekend (weekend before last)...it was just the best time ever! I posted several photos of our trip...if you get some time, come by and check them out! Where did ya'll go? Wouldn't that have been something if we were just within miles of one another? Ohhh...it would have just made me heartsick if we were...and didn't meet up!!!

So happy that you came by my Sunday Favorites post...thank you so much for your sweet, sweet note! Girlfriend, I'm doing a blog giveaway in honor of my one year blogging anniversary...you should come by and sign up...would love for you to have a chance at those interior decorating books! The giveaway post is listed under August 20th's date!

Well Darlin'...have a marvelous Monday and thank you so much for sharing just a bit of your Colorado Rockies fishing trip with us...so happy that you had a great time!!!

Love ya,
Chari

Hi BJ, What a pleasure it was to see you. Like you, I love to fish but don't eat them either. But Bobby G. would love the trout. We live on a lake and he fishes every single day and we have never eaten a single one...go figure. The fishing photos of you are adorable! xo Lynn

Oh, I'm sorry, did you say you caught fish? I was too distracted by your sagging boobs and jeans to notice.
