I felt like last weekend got away from me. Leaned too far toward the errand/chore side of things, so I decided this weekend would be the opposite and I’d keep adulting to a minimum. Which meant eating out, having groceries delivered, getting a manicure and watching movies.
Friday night double date with my sister and Wayne! We grabbed a casual dinner at Illegal Pete’s, where they have good, cheap, strong margaritas that feel too good to be true. After, we headed to the Alamo for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and look, an animated Spider-Man movie that contains the word “Spider-Verse” might sound dumb and honestly, it didn’t really seem like my kind of thing but I’d heard too many good reviews and decided to be open-minded. Guys, I loved it! It just works on every level and it was incredibly funny. “Can you float through the air when you smell a delicious pie?” is a real line spoken by a character called Spider-Ham and I laughed SO hard. If you feel like taking a chance on this movie, I promise you won’t regret it.
I got a manicure Saturday afternoon and then we had a day date! First, we went to Safta for blue crab hummus but when they didn’t have it, we ordered regular hummus and then split a lamb kebab sandwich, which turned out to be on a pita and filled with hummus. So I guess what I’m saying is, I got my fill of pita and hummus but what I’m also saying is THIS PITA WAS INCREDIBLE. That lamb, that chutney, those pickles. Gah, we were in lunchtime heaven!
Later on, we went to the Mayan to see Destroyer. It was just okay, to be honest. Felt sort of amateur and though Nicole Kidman is a successful and treasured actress, does she have to wear so many wigs?? I liked the format of the film, I just didn’t love the content as much.
Sunday started with a family breakfast to celebrate my dad’s birthday. I gave him a Coen Brothers book that he was poring over all morning, so I think it’s safe to say he liked it ♥ After we all ate, most of us walked over to the park and my niece made this cute snowman because guys, she is a little artist! My nephew later kicked it over because guys, he is a 9 (almost 10!) year old boy.
The rest of the afternoon was spent on Larimer, where we met up with our friend Zach at Our Mutual Friend to join him in a birthday beer. Then Jenn, Joey, my sister, Wayne and I had lunch? dinner? linner? at Cart-Driver. I think this is how most people our age spend a Sunday in Denver, but for us homebodies, it felt like an indulgent treat!
Please tell me how you spent the weekend 🙂
