Labor Day Weekend Things

Okay, sorry to be disgustingly happy, but life is just so so good right now.

Fall is in the air, wedding details are all pulled together, everything is under control and this is the best week ever.  Actually, the best week started last Friday!

Friday was the first annual summer Denver Restaurant Week.  I’ve heard great things about Trillium so I made reservations there before their menu was even up.  The appetizers, entrees and drinks were all great, but the peach shortbread I had for dessert was life changing.



Saturday started with iced coffee and toast with house-made almond butter and lavender honey.  Oh my god.  Then we went over to Cheesman!  It was so beautiful that we kinda thought about just getting married right then and there.  But instead we just went over some day of details with Joey’s aunt and uncle and left 🙂




Afterwards, we headed to the mall to grab some last minute things.  I think we found everything we needed so I’d call it a successful day.  Plus we fit in lunch at True Food Kitchen.  Which is really the only reason I shop at the Cherry Creek Mall anyway.


Okay, maybe not the most exciting Saturday night ever, but we finished up our very last wedding project and now we are done.  As in, all stress is gone and we’re free to have fun and enjoy time with each other and our friends and family.  Best feeling ever.

Sunday is a perfect example of said “stress-free” living.  As in, I slept in, went for a run, lounged on the couch and had a wine flight with lunch.  Hey, I’m just practicing for when we’re in Paris for our honey moon 😛




Later, we went to my parents’ for one last summer BBQ.  My mom made peach cobbler.  I don’t know if I could pick a favorite between my mom’s red velvet, shrimp stuffing and that cobbler.  It never fails to hit the spot.  I also always say summer isn’t allowed to be over until we’ve had cobbler so I guess I’m ready to let go now.  The evening was capped off by our first wedding guest arrival… my uncle!


Monday involved more running, more breakfasting and some work.  We figured we should go in for a few hours since we’re missing most of September 😛  I was SO productive.  Not!  But we left early, and had yet another celebratory dinner.  Can’t stop, won’t stop with those this week 🙂


How was your Labor Day weekend?!
