Weekend Things

I realized something important this weekend.  I like having plans.  I like being busy.  I thrive off that kind of lifestyle.  Our Saturday was wide open and my brain was like, “Paint the laundry room?”  “Make chocolate bark?” “Go on a run?”  “Take a nap?”  And in true anti-decision-making form, my brain then exploded.  The good news is, busy or not, this weekend still had all the things that make me happy.  Aka, Biker Jim’s, Rockies game, Saturday morning coffee, finding a new book, family breakfast and lots of walking.


Sometimes you just need to pre-game your Friday night with a cat nap.  For the record, it didn’t really help but a spicy Vegan dog + two giant Arnold Palmers did.  Rockies win!

We couldn’t decide if we wanted to take it to go or stay and get breakfast, but you know me, I can’t resist oatmeal in Mason jars, coffee shop people watching or sipping an almond milk latte out of a cute white mug.IMG_7769 IMG_7770 Stopped by the little “take a book, leave a book” library on our way home and I found a Vonnegut.  I may have read Slaughterhouse-Five my first semester of college or I may have pretended to read it and feel like I should give Vonnegut a second chance.  Either way, the colors on this book cover are amazing.IMG_7765My iPhone camera couldn’t decide where to focus.  Though, now that I really look, Curtis Cow’s eyes look pretty clear.  This was my first full glass of our newest beer and yeah, safe to say the 10.5% alcohol reading is about right.  Whoa!  Oh and I wore Joey’s FitBit all day (because I was curious!) and got to 13K steps so I was feeling like the FitBit Queen.  FYI, that thing does not even count your steps if you’ve got both hands pushing the grocery cart.


Sunday was RAINY.  We walked to meet Joey’s grandparents at breakfast, had them over to see the house progress, then basically parked it on the couch for the rest of the day.  When the weather’s bad, we all just laze about, watch six episodes of The Wire and make ourselves chocolate chip pancakes for dinner, right?

P.S. I only posted ONE food picture on Insta this weekend.  What is my life even about?!
