Weekend Things

Hold on to your hats, I’ve got a lot of pictures and a lot to say!  In the name of brevity — and the fact that it’s another busy Monday morning at the office — I’m going bullet point-style for this one.

Starting the day off right with seasonal drinks (cardamom latte for me, s’more latte for him) at our favorite coffee shop // Still experiencing grilling weather in CO // First beer since GABF and man, was it good // Watched Young Frankenstein for the first time and was positively hysterical over Marty Feldman’s portrayal of Igor.

Been wanting to make these pancakes for WEEKS and they were more than worth the wait, except that I wanted my picture to look as pretty as the ones in the post and when I looked down my coconut whipped cream had slid right off // Apple season at the Union Station Farmers’ Market // Carried home a BB spaghetti squash in my bike basket // THE LEAVES RIGHT NOW!

Three years in this neighborhood and just going to Gaetano’s for the first time (it was not Roma level…) // Had to be a supportive wife and help Joey carbo-load for his half marathon // Then I introduced him to Once Bitten and wow, that movie is way worse than I remember it being // Spiced pumpkin chocolate chunk cookie from the batch I baked on Thursday night — SO GOOD!

Sunday morning, Lori and I headed downtown to watch Joey finish his race and I brought her her first ever almond milk latte which was also her first latte ever! // Joey was all nervous about finishing in his goal time of 1:45 but then totally killed it by coming in two minutes faster // So proud of him and so amazed by that fiery tree behind us // Sunday breakfast at DJ’s Berkely Cafe afterwards.

Joint 80th Birthday dinner for Joey’s grandparents at White Fence Farm // There’s farm animals to feed and it’s official — goats have thee scariest animal eyes of all time // Afterwards, Joey and I became a happy farm animal family // Family photo where everyone is perfectly posed with their eyes open?  We must be profesh or something!

In summation: PERFECT fall weather, ALL the good comfort foods, Joey being an absolute ROCK STAR and family being the BEST ♥

  1. Everything looks so delicious in these photos–I mean that down to the fall foliage! I just want to kind of live in these. What a stellar packed weekend! I’m definitely going to try those pancakes because you said the words coconut whipped cream. Need.
