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}

Weekend Recap: Hanging at Home

Recap of March 8-10 I think this was the first weekend I’ve had in several months that I didn’t go up to my Vail house for at least a bit… but there was a lot going on in Superior! I started Friday with an event that wasn’t in Superior, but in a neighboring town. The Brighton Image Summit is a two-day conference that brings together students from all over the state to¬†encourage them to use their voice to impact government {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Beaver Creek Talons Challenge

Recap of February 23-24 This was a really exciting weekend for me, as I achieved a huge ski goal for myself! And when that was done, I also got some down time as I gear up to get back on the road for work. Friday was a busy day of work (as usual), but I was able to book some calls for the afternoon during which I could drive out to the mountains. I left around 1:30pm, well before the {Read More}

This morning, I’m off to do the Talons Challenge at Beaver Creek! The Talons Challenge is an annual event where skiers have to take a run down every black diamond and double black diamond in the Talons area of Beaver Creek – 14 runs, but 26,000 vertical feet. This is the first year I’ve ever even attempted a double black diamond, but after all the skiing I’ve done this year, I’m so excited that I’ve gotten good enough to attempt {Read More}
