This Week + Dinner at Uncle

I just walked into my office and discovered a moth flying around.  I seriously almost just turned around and headed back home.  I do NOT do moths.  Joey caught it with his hands and now I’ll just be reminding myself not to let him touch anything of mine for the rest of the day.  Anyway, it’s Friday, it’s the beginning of Memorial Day weekend and it’s time for a weekly recap.  Because someone neglected to post all week.  Oopsie!

On Monday

It rained.

We went to the Rockies game.  I’m a fair weather fan in the most literal sense so the drizzle and chill wasn’t ideal, but I think Joey and I were both so set on going to a game that not going never even crossed our minds.

Aaaaand we lost…


On Tuesday

It rained.

I ate a quesadilla, because it seemed like the only way to beat the rainy day blues.

We finally finished The Wire.  I was never really on board with the show, but that last season really lost me.  What should we watch next?!


On Wednesday

It rained.  Are you getting as sick of this as I am?

We grilled burgers (in the rain…), roasted giant in-season asparagus, drank beer and pretended as hard as we could that it was summer.

We didn’t watch Letterman’s last show.  Is that bad?


On Thursday

My nephew graduated kindergarten!  They sang “Here Comes the Sun” during the ceremony and I’ve never been more proud.  You’re never too young to start learning Beatles lyrics.

On our way into the school, I (and all the parents, teachers and mortified children outside) watched a lady accidentally roll her car over her son’s foot/ankle when he got out of the moving car.  The mother sat in the car screaming until someone pulled her out and moved her car.  I wanted to speak to the school counselor afterwards because I felt traumatized.

We went to dinner at Uncle!


When it’s May, you live in Colorado and you haven’t seen sun or warmth all week, a giant bowl of ramen is where it’s at.  Also, we’d had Uncle on our “list” for a long long time.  We braved the dreaded hour-long wait and it was so worth it!  We started with the fried green tomato buns, followed by pork belly ramen (for Joey) and spicy chicken ramen (for me) and it was all phenomenal!  Mine had a tahini broth!  Plus we got to sit at the chef’s counter and watch all the kitchen action.  I loved it all!



On Friday

IT’S STILL RAINING!!!  What have we done to deserve this?!

I’m missing my mom and sister who have been in New Orleans since last Saturday.  Come home, you two!

I’m looking forward to another Friday Rockies game, Saturday parties and Denver Day of Rock, Sunday yard work, the Bolder Boulder and anything else that happens during one of my favorite holiday weekends of the year!  And I’m going to pretend it won’t be raining during all of those things…

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
