Weekend Recap: Last Day of Freedom

Weekend of March 13-15 Wow, things have really changed quite a bit in the last week. I started quarantining on Sunday and don’t plan to leave my house except for groceries until this is all over. It probably won’t make sense to do just “weekend recaps” anymore… perhaps I’ll get back to blogging randomly throughout the week? TBD. But for now, how about I recap my last days of freedom before I started staying home? I was in Atlanta for {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Skiing is the New Golf

This week, I took three days off work to head to Utah with some coworkers for a ski boondoggle. I haven’t taken a true vacation in so long (some time off at Christmas, but otherwise my last vacation was Vienna a year ago). With all the stress I’ve been under, it was definitely much needed! I flew into SLC on Tuesday morning, after some meetings got moved around and I needed to be on the ground by 1pm. I started driving from {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: 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}

Weekend Recap: Holiday Party Weekend

Weekend of December 7-8 This was a super short weekend for me… so hopefully that means I can crank out this recap and get caught up on writing these :) I did get home on Thursday night, but my Friday was absolutely packed – first I hosted First Friday for my town, then was off to a dentist appointment, and then I finally was able to flip over to do work the rest of the day. I used to make {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Santacon, and Monet

Recap of November 27 to December 1 This was a lovely long weekend from Thanksgiving Thursday to Sunday! And my mom was with me in Colorado the whole time, which made me really happy. I’m working on convincing her to move, and I think it’s starting to work, as she periodically sends me houses on Zillow she’s looking at :) Speaking of houses, to start Thanksgiving extra thankful, Mom and I headed up to the mountains after I finished work {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Chicago Sell Weekend and Friendsgiving

Weekend of November 16-17 This was a very short weekend for me, as I had work events in Chicago through Saturday morning. But I managed to pack a lot in! My week of travel was crazy – six cities in six days. However, thanks to a big snowstorm in Chicago on Monday, that leg of my trip got canceled, so I headed straight to Atlanta (my Tuesday destination). Oddly enough, knocking just one city off my list and spending two {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Kelly’s 35th Birthday!

Weekend of November 8-10 I would have to say my weekend kind of kicked off on Thursday last week, as two of my analysts flew into town to visit Denver for the weekend! I was really excited to get to spend more time with them outside of the office :) Julia and Spencer were staying at my friend Sara’s apartment downtown (Sara is a senior associate at my company), and we convened at Sara’s place Thursday night to kick off {Read More}

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: Tiny Beautiful Things

Weekend of October 11-12 After a busy Friday of work, I was psyched for some really fun plans Friday night: dinner and a night at the theater with my friend Kelly and her family! I’ve gotten to know Kelly’s wonderful Aunt Ann and Uncle Jim at Kelly’s wedding eight years ago, and now am delighted to get to see them whenever they come to town. Our first stop was Zolo Grill in Boulder – a Mexican restaurant right in the {Read More}
