Weekend Recap: End of Rainy Spring

This weekend was pretty low-key, in large part to some bad weather most of the weekend! I’m about ready for summer, so it was kind of a bummer to have icky weather so often. First, on Friday, I hosted my annual Cinco de Mayo party (yes, a week late, due to lots of other fiestas last weekend). Unfortunately, the scheduling turned out to really not be in my favor. I originally planned to host the belated celebration on Saturday, but after {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Holy Guacamole

This weekend was Cinco de Mayo, which is always one of my favorite holidays to celebrate. Margaritas and tacos, what more can you ask for?! But my annual Cinco de Mayo party this year is becoming an “Once de Mayo” party next Friday; this weekend, I had a “guac off” and a fiesta-themed wedding to attend. I was working from home on Friday morning, and was able to take advantage of a listen-only all-hands call to chop up nine avocados {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Summer is (Almost) Here!

This weekend started earlier than most! I’ve been desperately needing a vacation for a while, but last month, realized that taking a day off every month was probably going to be the best I could do for a while. I was booked for training all day Thursday in Fort Lauderdale, and the session wrapped up too late for me to catch a flight home that night, so I decided to stick around, take a half day on Friday, and spend {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Packed with Plans

Last weekend was packed, but the only big thing to report was a race I did Saturday… for which you’ll need to stay tuned for a full race report. It was a good one! Thursday night, as soon as I landed, I headed straight downtown for Denver Rescue Mission’s annual volunteer appreciation event. We got to enjoy hors d’oeuvres and a presentation on the impact of our service, and then were released to explore the History Colorado Museum. I had never {Read More}

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: 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}
