This Week

Guys.  It’s been a weird week.  Partly because we went from 75° and sunny to the worst snowstorm I’ve seen since the epic Blizzard of 2003 (I was in high school and we got a whole extra week of Spring Break!) and partly because my eye has been twitching since November and I’ve reached a point where it’s so annoying and frustrating and distracting that it’s putting me in a weird funk.  I’ve tried hot compresses, naps, tonic water.  UGH.

But as I’m glancing through my phone at the pictures I’ve taken and the things that have happened this week, it doesn’t all seem so hopeless.  In fact, it seems downright delightful.  We had a Monday lunch picnic, Rockies season tickets came (in a old school lunchbox, I might add), I got new candles, started a new book, ate a really good burger, sipped a drink called FLOWER FUEL (!!), got half a snow day, watched Star Wars and made bánh mì sliders.  Plus today is FRIYAY!

Tofu, carrot, radish, mung bean sprouts (!), Asian pear, kale and the most delicious peanut dressing.

Is it cool if I start packing my lunch in this?

Standard Wax does this thing where they offer “effed up” candles — i.e. chipped ceramic, cracked wax, etc. — at half price.  I snagged these two scents and love them both.

This week I decided we need more mid-week meals out in Denver.  Central Bistro & Bar has all night happy hour on Tuesdays and turns out they do a damn good burger.  Literally couldn’t stop eating those fries!

Because we are insane, Joey and I went out Wednesday morning.  It was snowing LIKE CRAZY but Weathervane was cozy and quiet and my drink tasted like a liquid marshmallow, so: WORTH IT!

 By 2 PM the snow was this far up my office window, roads were being shut down left and right and my mom sent me a text ordering me to go home.  I was more than happy to comply.

Suck it, Kyle Clark.

No better time to start a movie marathon than during a snow day, right?  I was all “Joey DO NOT fall asleep during this movie!!!” and then I fell asleep during the movie.  P.S. I do not remember Luke being as whiny as he was!

Sometimes you bake your own rolls, pickle your own veggies and emulsify your own vegan mayo and end up with the cutest and tastiest little bánh mì sliders.  Probably gonna make them again next week.

Tell me something you did, read, ate, watched this week!  And have a happy Easter weekend!

  1. I was stuck in NYC with the blizzard, and while I enjoyed the 60/70 degree weather there, I sort of wish I had been able to cozy up in this storm! It looks kind of dreamy. That coffee shop looks wonderful! I need to do more cafe exploring this Spring. Also: I’m pretty sure your blog is just #foodgoals for me.

    • Ugh, I’m dying to go to NYC! I’d gladly be “stuck” there any day 🙂 You have to check out Weathervane. It is so so cute. I usually spend the entire time I’m there, staring at that little shelf of local goodies.
