Weekend Recap: Filling the Time

On Tuesday, I hosted a virtual happy hour for one of my teams at work. I had everyone fill out a survey of silly / interesting questions ahead of time, then we guessed who gave which answer. It was a lot of fun! One of the questions was, “If you could have any superpower, what would it be?” Whenever I’ve been asked this question in the past, my answer has always been, “the ability to freeze time.” In the last {Read More}

Quarantine Health Goals

I’m sure you’ve seen some of the memes out there about coming out of quarantine unrecognizable due to weight gain. I’m taking the opposite approach. I’ve been indulging a bit too much on yummy food and drinks lately, so I’m trying to take advantage of my extended stay at home as an opportunity to eat healthy, work out hard, and come out in better shape than I went in! My hard-and-fast daily quarantine rules are as follows: Do a Peloton {Read More}

Isolation Diaries, Days 6-13: Peloton + Puppy

Today is day 13 for me of self-isolation. Eagle County, where my mountain house is, was a hotspot for COVID19 because of all the people flying into Vail / Beaver Creek from all over the world. So right after my last visit there, the Colorado Department of Public Health asked anyone who had been to Eagle County to self-isolate for 7-10 days. I wasn’t too bothered by the announcement, as I was planning to do that anyway, seeing how dire {Read More}

Weekend Recap: She Works Hard for the Money

This was a rough weekend, my friends. I’ve been trying to post more on Instagram Stories lately, sharing both the good and the bad. And honestly, I have been super stressed out with work. I thought it all came to a head in January, when my friend / coworker Elizabeth visited me for the weekend and I just completely melted down, but the stress has continued and I haven’t yet found a way out :/ Friday was a pretty brutal day {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Solo Talons and Spring Running

After last week’s mess of a time getting home from the mountains, and knowing this was President’s Day weekend, I wanted to get out to Minturn early this weekend. Fortunately, I had a lot of morning calls that were primarily listen-only, so I packed up my stuff late on Thursday night after my flight got in, then headed out Friday morning. I couldn’t leave till 9am because of some active calls from 7-9, and unfortunately, that ended up being my {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Zach’s Cabin Birthday Tradition

This weekend kicked off pretty late, as I was at my company’s Advisory Leadership conference in San Diego Wednesday through Friday, and didn’t get home until 6:30 p.m. on Friday. Unfortunately, due to some delayed flights, that meant I was late for dinner with my friends Chris and Mark. Plus, although it had been sunny and beautiful in San Diego (enough where I got to go yachting with some coworkers!), I landed in Denver to find a snowy mess that {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Superbowl Sunday in Vail

This weekend wasn’t quite as restful as it probably should have been – but I packed a lot into another weekend in the mountains! I got home from Atlanta late on Thursday night, and tried to pack up a bit so I’d have an easier time getting out on Friday morning. On Friday, I took a few calls from home, then a few from the road as I drove out to Minturn, stopping to grab a sandwich on the way. {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Beaver Creek Culinary Weekend

This weekend was much better than the last – it was packed! And full of food, wine, and fun with friends :) I got home reasonably early on Thursday from a trip to New York… and was on the same flight as my friend Sara! It was fun to catch up walking through Denver Airport when we landed, and we ended up making plans to meet up on Friday for lunch and to catch up further. On Friday, I knocked {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Regrouping

I have been really stressed lately – and unfortunately, this weekend that all came to a head. On Thursday night, despite a delay in my first flight out of Charlottesville, Virginia (where I went for a recruiting trip and got to relive some nostalgia and once again enjoy one of the best meals of my life at The Flat creperie), I made my connection and got home on time. Good thing, because when I landed at Denver Airport, my coworker / friend {Read More}

Why I Love Peloton – Recapping My 100th Ride

Although I haven’t done a full post on it till now, my love for Peloton has shown up throughout my weekend recaps and on my social media over the last few months. Last night, I hit my “century ride” (100 classes) – and I got to do the ride live in the studio in New York! My Peloton Journey / Setup Stepping back… I first got into Peloton last spring, when I was in New York for a project for {Read More}
