Weekend Recap: Thanksgiving with Mom!

Weekend of November 22-24 This was an exhausting week of work; I was at the office past 9pm most nights, and then delivered an all-day workshop on Friday which just took a lot of my mental energy. But when I flew home Friday night, it was knowing that my mom was waiting at the Denver Airport for me – she’s visiting for ten days! I have to say, it took every ounce of my willpower not to have a glass {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Kelly’s 35th Birthday!

Weekend of November 8-10 I would have to say my weekend kind of kicked off on Thursday last week, as two of my analysts flew into town to visit Denver for the weekend! I was really excited to get to spend more time with them outside of the office :) Julia and Spencer were staying at my friend Sara’s apartment downtown (Sara is a senior associate at my company), and we convened at Sara’s place Thursday night to kick off {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Back to Running!!

Weekend of November 2-3 I got back from a business trip to Atlanta on Wednesday night, and then Thursday was Halloween.¬†As I wrote about last week, I went to my brother’s Halloween party as a 60s gogo dancer… and I reused the same costume to hand out candy at home in Superior. But before that, I had a PT appointment… and Emily finally gave me the go-ahead to start running again! I’m not allowed to do much, but Friday morning, {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Mom’s Fall Visit!

Weekend of September 28-29 I rolled into this weekend pretty exhausted… but also pretty psyched. My mom is visiting Colorado for 11 days! My mom was due to get in at midnight on Thursday, so I booked my flight home from Chicago to arrive late as well, at 11pm. That meant I just had an hour to hang out at the airport and wait for her to arrive. I ended up making it into a date with a fellow traveler {Read More}

Weekend Recap: F45, Cookblog, and Superior Shindig

Weekend of September 21-22 I kicked off my weekend with Friday night dinner plans at one of my favorite local hot spots: El Five, in Lo-Hi. While the food at El Five isn’t my absolute favorite, the presentation is incredible and the views can’t be beat – the city skyline to the east, and the mountains to the west. I had a wonderful time and totally lost track of my time, finally heading home around 10pm. So much for my {Read More}

Weekend Recap: First Weekend of Summer!

Weekend of May 31 to June 2 My mom flew out on Thursday afternoon, after a fabulous week – I wished she were staying longer! However, I was distracted from missing her by the arrival of Craig, who I picked up from the airport just a few minutes after I dropped my mom off. That wasn’t planned, but it was nice to have it work out that way! After Craig and I got home, we were in for the night {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Memorial Day Weekend with Mom

My mom has been in town for a week and flew back yesterday – bummer! Luckily, we’ve had a nice, relaxing visit, and I think for once I did a good job of not overloading her with activities. (I made it a point to only plan one thing per day, which is what she prefers.) I can’t wait for her to come back! I worked for the day Friday rather than taking off, but wrapped up by 5pm in order {Read More}

Weekend Recap / Race Report: Colorado Women’s Classic

Weekend of May 11-12 Last weekend, my friend Claire had convinced me to sign up for the Colorado Women’s Classic, a ten mile race in Westminster on Sunday morning. I figured that while I wasn’t really in ten mile shape, it would be a good way to force myself to get out for a long run, and perhaps burn off a few of the margaritas I planned to have Saturday night at my belated Cinco de Mayo party. I had {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Back from Vienna

After those last two very long blog posts on Vienna and Ragnar, how about a (slightly) shorter weekend recap? I got home from Vienna on Thursday afternoon, and dove right back into life in Superior. My friend Heidi was throwing a “girls’ night in” with a twist: she invited various local beauty vendors to host their services at her house, and all of us got to sip wine and nibble on desserts and hors d’oeuvres in between treatments. Even though {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Spring is Here!

This week, I had to be in New York until Friday. Fortunately, I was able to catch an early flight, and it was on time, so I still made it home at 5pm to start my weekend. And I started my weekend in a great way – my neighborhood friend Kate had invited a bunch of friends over for a last minute happy hour! About a dozen families brought drinks to share and kicked in a few bucks for dinner, {Read More}
