Oscar Weekend Things

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

About time, right?!  I’m just gonna picture Leo doing that Wolf of Wall Street dance (you know the one) for the rest of the day.  It’s crazy, I wait for the Oscars all winter and still somehow managed to forget to print our at-home ballots this year.  THE HORROR.  Don’t worry, my sister bailed me out by letting me use her printer on Saturday.  Joey beat me by two points and I’m blaming Mad Max for destroying my entire ballot.  I’m obviously excited for a Leo win but how bout Brie Larson, Alicia Vikander and Spotlight?  Cheers all around!

Rewinding back to Friday, we busted out of work early and headed to The Crafty Fox — which just opened down the street from us — before hockey festivities commenced.  Denver hosted the outdoor hockey game NHL Stadium Series game this year at Coors Field, so we had the alumni game on Friday and the regular game on Saturday.  I’m special and managed to get a cold just in time for back to back nights sitting outside…

I was really excited for 60 beers on tap and pizza, but service at The Crafty Fox was PAINFULLY slow.  I get that it just opened, but when you’re the only table there, shouldn’t your server have plenty of time to keep your glass filled?  Oy.

Our Trip to Hawaii: Kauai

Kauai.

Gosh, where do I even start?  And how do I describe an island as peaceful, relaxing, lush and breathtaking as Kauai?  I don’t think I can do it justice.

I’m kind of glad Oahu was the first island we visited, because after being somewhere that was a bit busier, Kauai was such a breath of fresh air.  We got there just before the sunset and this was the view from our hotel balcony and it all felt so perfect.  I just kept asking myself “is this real life?!”  We stayed at the Kauai Marriott and it was beautiful.  Not only did it have a giant pool setup but the beach was RIGHT THERE.  Plus complimentary Mai Tais!

Our first morning, we grabbed breakfast at the Kalapaki Beach Hut — I totally ate a breakfast sandwich on a hamburger bun and I’m not gonna lie, I didn’t mind it! — then went on a HELICOPTER RIDE.  Oh my god.  I think we were all pretty nervous.  In that first picture, I am probably telling Joey something along the lines of “I think I’ll just have a panic attack mid-flight” and I think my face says it all in that second picture.Read More »
