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: 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: A Superior Weekend (Race Report: Superior 5K)

Weekend of September 6-8 I had originally planned to be in downtown Denver for some meetings Friday afternoon, after which my friend Sara and I were going to meet for happy hour. However, the meetings got canceled, and we decided to bail on the happy hour as well. While I had been looking forward to it all week, I was kind of relieved for the opportunity to not drink, eat well, and head to bed early. I wanted to be rested {Read More}

Race Recap: Superior Mile

Race run on July 4, 2019 Last Thursday morning was the annual Superior Mile. While this has become an annual tradition for me, this year’s event was a little different than in years past! Craig had an 8am flight, so our alarm was set for 5:30am. I figured I’d get him out the door, then have plenty of time to get ready and leave for the 7:00am race start. However, somehow time got away from me and I didn’t end {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: 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: Fairytale Ball

Weekend of April 13th-14th This weekend was centered around one big event – A Precious Child’s annual fundraising gala, which this year was themed as a fairy tale ball! My Friday kicked off with a cool work event – I presented some of my new digital work, but did so at a bar in a low-key, open discussion format. It was a lot of fun, and I got some really positive feedback on one of the tools I developed! Unfortunately, {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Soaring 20s Fundraiser

Weekend of March 15-17 Although Friday was a work day, I counted it as my weekend starting early, since we were making up the Denver Advisory ski trip that had gone so awry a few weeks before. The snow wasn’t nearly as good as the day we were supposed to have it, but the sun was shining and the company was fantastic. As a non-golfer, perhaps I’m just not in the loop, but I think there’s no better place to {Read More}
