Weekend Recap: Meandering in Vail / Beaver Creek

Weekend of April 6-7 This weekend was fairly quiet, as I canceled most of my plans to get extra “me” time instead. Selfish, I know, but I think I needed it – and I finished the weekend so happy! Friday night after work was spent in my favorite way: with a drive up to the mountains, a little bit of cooking while I watched Sex and the City, and then a book and a glass of wine. Pure bliss! There’s {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Saratoga and Vail

My weekend started off with a little trip – up to Albany, New York to visit my family! I’ve been working on a project in New York City recently, which made it feasible to pop up to Albany for two days before flying home. While it’s not part of the “weekend”, my mom came down to New York on Tuesday, and we were able to get discounted tickets on Tuesday night to see Kelli O’Hara in Kiss Me Kate. Then on {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Guests Galore

Weekend of March 22-24 My weekend kicked off a bit early, as I had taken Thursday off work to volunteer with Defy Ventures. Defy is a truly incredible organization; you can read about my last experience with them here. This time, we were launching a program at a brand new prison: La Vista Correctional Facility (LVCF), which is all women! While I thought I knew what to expect from my previous experiences with Defy, the women at LVCF defied my expectations. {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}

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: Skiing Cut Short, Fun Extended

Recap of March 1-3 My weekend kind of started out a bit early, with my company’s annual ski trip to Winter Park. However, this year’s trip was a bit out of the norm. We loaded up the bus at Dinosaur Lots as usual, but our bus driver seemed a little odd. I didn’t pay too much attention – I was just excited as it was snowing hard in the mountains, and we were about to have a great day! Unfortunately, {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}

Weekend Recap: Queen of the Slopes, Queen of the Toilets

Weekend of 2/15-2/17 This was a weekend of very little sleep. The tone was set on Thursday night, when I randomly woke up at 3am and couldn’t get back to sleep. Around 4:30am, I finally gave up trying, and grabbed a book to read in bed rather than wasting time tossing and turning. Finally, around 6am, I headed to Chuze Fitness for some treadmill time. After the gym and a bunch of work, I headed out to the mountains soon after {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Sick or Lazy? / Workouts Lately

Weekend of February 9-10 This is going to be a pretty short weekend recap… but after Friday night, there’s not a lot to report! Friday was a very big day for me at work. I’ve spent the last few months planning for SheTech Colorado, a one-day conference for high school girls to get them excited about careers in STEM, and Friday it all came to fruition! I was on tap to give some welcoming remarks in the beginning (right before {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Mountain Retreat and Super Bowl

Recap of February 1-3 I went into this weekend super stressed out. It had been a really busy week at work, and I had a packed weekend lined up ahead. Although I had been looking forward to this weekend for a long time, I now wished I could cancel my plans and just catch up on everything I was behind on! You know you’re not in a good place when the prospect of spending a fun weekend with friends sounds stressful. {Read More}
