Silk Visit Day One

Good Morning from my lovely hotel room in Boulder, CO.

I love having a fresh room all to myself so I can dirty it up. I’m messy.

I arrived in Denver yesterday and the reps from Silk whisked the group off to the White Wave headquarters in Bloomfield.

We started with an info session about the company and core products. Did you know Silk started out as a tofu company?

I scored the best loot bag ever too!

Amazing snacks (that I want to eat right now, but I don’t think they make for the most balanced breakfast?)

and a hardcore new foam roller! My IT band has been super tight and I almost dragged my roller on this trip!! Ha! This is one of those killer ones with ridges I haven’t tried yet. Wish me luck it’s going to be rough. IMG 20130612 144531 602x800 thumb Silk Visit Day One

We went on an afternoon hike at the Marshall Mesa Trail

After the hike we enjoyed the new Silk Iced Latte drink.

I already tried the mocha because my mom buys Silk like it’s the only beverage on Earth. It’s dee-lish! Added bonus: It has the same amount of caffeine  as a cup o’coffee if you’re into that sorta thing wlEmoticon winkingsmile Silk Visit Day One

Then it was time to head back to the hotel for a wardrobe change for dinner.

We went to Salt in Boulder.

The meal started with a Silk ‘adult beverage’ – Strawberry Crush. Silk has some good cocktail recipes on their website under the Silkology label. (I think the Strawberry recipe is coming soon – I’ll let you know.)

Tina and I actually tried a bunch of their Silk Cocktails at Blogher Food last year! <- that was a fun night

Dinner at Salt was delicious.

and salmon.

For dessert I thought the Dark Chocolate Carmel Salted Tart was appropriate since I love chocolate and was at a restaurant called SALT.IMG 20130612 205509 800x800 thumb Silk Visit Day One

I also stole a few bite’s of RJ’s blueberry shortcake.

I’ve been on vacation and in lalaland and am behind on the news. But, the Black Forest Fire is all over the news here. It’s not contained at all and dozens of  families have lost their homes.  Please keep those affected in your prayers.

Gotta run -  I’ll be back in a bit!

    MMM, I love Silk products. Very interesting fact that Silk started out as a tofu company, I am a tofu eater, I’ll have to check them out in my local g-store. I also enjoy the Justins products, yumm you made out girl! Looks like a you had a great trip.

    Monica! I’m from Boulder – I even recognized your pics from your trail run :) Hope you had a great time! I’ve been a reader for a long time!! P.S. I just signed up for the US Half in San Fran in Nov and I think you need to come run it too! I’ll bring the watermelon?!

    I almost fainted when I saw the form roller. I have one (but not painful looking like yours) and don’t like to use it because it hurts. Well, it hurts because my IT band is tight too. Boo. :(
