Weekend Recap: Fitnesswear to Formal

This weekend had quite a few polar opposites as I went from fitness gear to formalwear… but getting to experience all sides of the spectrum is exactly how I like it! My flight got in a bit early on Thursday, which allowed me to meet a friend at Twelve Degrees in Louisville for a quick drink to kick off my time at home. Twelve Degrees is one of my favorite breweries in Colorado, and it had been a while since {Read More}

Weekend Recap: A Full Weekend Off Work!

I did my best this weekend to take both Saturday¬†and Sunday off work… and was pretty proud that I mostly succeeded! Of course, it took me working till 8pm Friday night to do so, but I’ll gladly take the baby steps to better work-life balance. After work on Friday, one of my neighbors came over for a drink and to catch up, which was fantastic. Although my work takes me all over the place, I love being a part of {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Solo Ski Getaway

Last weekend was pretty spectacular, and it helped me start this week feeling refreshed… and hopeful about a new direction I’m planning to take going forward. Work has been pretty intense lately, and while I’ve fit in time for fun on weekends, there hasn’t been a single day in the last month that I haven’t had to do a few hours of work to keep things afloat. I know that I have workaholic tendencies, but when I discussed my weekend {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Pink Vail

As I wrote on Saturday, this weekend I missed sleeping in my own little bed… but I got to spend the weekend skiing in Vail! Saturday was Pink Vail, the world’s biggest ski day to raise money for cancer. Since Pink Vail is held so late in the season, many years it’s less about the skiing and more about the fundraising / party. But this year, we got a big storm on Friday night that gave us ten inches of {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Sushi, St. Pats, and a Slew of Skiing

This was one of the best weekends I’ve had in a long time – I feel like things are finally looking up and the cloud that’s been raining bad luck on me for the first quarter is starting to lift! I’m still not really doing well on the sleep front, but I’m having fun – and that mental break is good enough for me. Friday was an unusual work day for me – it was the day of our fourth {Read More}

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: 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: 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}
