I have many pretty things to show you today! Namely, Coors Field, changing leaves, the burger of your dreams, more Coors Field and more food of your dreams (hummus this time!). Almost makes me forgot the Rockies lost on Friday, we forgot forks for our hiking lunch on Saturday and our server was just taking so so long on Sunday 😛 We are living in that in between summer and fall moment and it is truly the best!
Rockies are, for now at least, first in our division!
It is leaf peeping season in Colorado (a bit early this year because it’s been so dry) and I am officially stalking the Instagram location tags so I can have my finger on the pulse of where to go and when. Consider this my top priority for the rest of the month!
We hit up Kenosha Pass Saturday morning and it was STUNNING! The lots and trails just off the highway were packed but we took a tip from this article and found ourselves a mostly secluded trail for a moderate hike, during which I alternated between saying “oooooh, pretty!” and complaining about how we forgot forks to eat our lunch with. I ate my with my hands and Joey fashioned some chop sticks from some sticks he found on the ground. No judgment here 🙂 We ate by a pretty beaver pond then drove through Guanella Pass, where we parked so I could take a picture standing through the sunroof, then made our way back home. SOLID FIRST OUTING!
Back at home and cleaned up, we made Ultimate Summer PLT Burgers for dinner — OH MY GOD, I cannot stress enough how incredible these were!!! — then headed to the Rockies game again. We won this time!
I went for a run, got a Pumpkin Spice Latte and a haircut on Sunday, but most importantly, we enjoyed a long-awaited dinner at Safta for our 4 year anniversary and look, if your husband coordinates your anniversary dinner with your haircut because he knows you’ll have it all nice and styled, you know you’ve picked a winner. Our server was waiting WAY TOO LONG between visits to our table but ZERO COMPLAINTS about the food, especially that famous pita + hummus. We decided next time we go back, we’re just ordering drinks, hummus and dessert 🙂
How was your weekend?
