Weekend Recap: Ups and Downs

This weekend started out rough. I was at a conference Tuesday through Friday last week, and Friday was a “networking ski day”, where we’d get to ski Park City and make connections on the slopes. Having done some business ski trips in the past, I knew that the chairlifts are an excellent time to make connections and get into good conversations, and I was really excited about it! I got really nervous after spraining my foot that I wouldn’t be able {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Rest and Recovery

This weekend was a bit lower key than most, thanks to an unfortunate incident last Monday. Although I spent most of last weekend skiing (and taking some risks with tougher trails), it was while stepping off a curb at Palm Beach Airport that I rolled my foot with all my weight on it. I was able to walk it off that night, but it continued to hurt up until I went to bed, and when I woke up in the {Read More}

Weekend Recap: All the Skiing and All the Zoodles

Work has really been stressing me out these last few weeks, and I haven’t been sleeping well as a result. I know the importance of sleep, and did my best to prioritize it, but many nights I would just wake up in the middle of the night worrying and unable to get back to sleep – so I’d get up at 3am and start my day then. I was surprised to find that even on such little sleep, I was {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Mardi Gras Fete

This weekend involved a ton of work, and… not much of everything else. But I did take a break on Saturday night to throw my annual Mardi Gras fete (“Party Gras!”), so let’s recap that, shall we? I made basically the same menu as last year, except I cut the King Cake from the rotation. Even though it’s a classic Mardi Gras dish, and the tradition of baking a baby into it is fun, I’m not really a big fan {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Family Trip to Vermont

I wrote a few weeks ago about my grandmother’s passing on my father’s side. Because my Babcie lived in Warsaw, Poland, it was quite a struggle for my whole family to get there on short notice. In the end, my father went to represent our family, and my brothers and I planned a special trip up to spend time with him when he got back; we are also planning separate trips to Poland later in the year, when we’ll have {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Big Bro Visits Boulder

Last weekend was a pretty exciting one for me – my brother Erik came to visit Colorado for the first time since I moved! Friday started out as a really fun day at work. We had our national all-hands event, and I led the planning of the in-person portion for our Denver office. After a delicious lunch buffet, we watched a live webcast from Dallas. At the end of the webcast, we were treated to the news that our Denver {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Beaver Creek Culinary Weekend

Weekend recap a week behind… it’s been a rough week! But I’ll post last weekend’s tonight, and hopefully will do this weekend’s tomorrow. I want this documented for my own personal diary to look back on later ;) Later this spring, I was planning on buying a condo in the mountains. (I’m no longer sure whether that’s financially possible for me due to some major upsets this week, but we’ll see.) To help me make a well-informed decision, I decided {Read More}

Weekend Recap: From Workouts to Wine

This weekend started pretty rough. As I wrote about on Saturday, my grandmother in Poland passed away on Wednesday. It was something we were expecting, but the news was nonetheless sad. Furthermore, that left my family trying to figure out how to book last minute flights to Warsaw for the funeral. In the end, we decided to send my dad to represent our American branch of the family, and my brothers and I will go visit in a few months {Read More}
