I thought last weekend was a busy one, but man, this weekend was too! And it was busy in a social way, so even though this introvert might need a few recovery days, it was such a fun time.
I snuck out of work early on Friday to go have my nails done and look, I’ve already chipped a few, but oh well because they’re all the same length for once! Afterward, we walked our pup and fed ourselves leftovers before heading to the Rockies game. We lost — and we should have won — and I was cold by the end, but it was our first “normal” (aka not Opening Day or a big group) game and that part felt so good.
Saturday started with pancakes and then I ran into Louisville to have my eyebrows done and wow, I think it’d been something like five years since I’d done that?! Meanwhile, Joey was at home unpacking the cabinet system we just got for our garage and he was possibly way too excited about it. Lunchtime featured my newest kombucha which looked so pretty with those flecks of cayenne and then we were off to the races (figuratively, but also literally?).
Joey’s grandpa is 80 (today!) so there was a Kentucky Derby-themed party in his honor. Everyone was looking dapper and we streamed the race during the party, so we could all watch that crazy turn of events unfold. I felt so sad for the jockey who won then got disqualified! We had a wedding to attend afterward (which worked out attire-wise), so we left celebration #1 for celebration #2 around 5:30 and whoa, that wedding started RIGHT on time. There was mild discussion of Game of Thrones at our table and I definitely heard the party table behind us toast “To the respect of women. To people respecting women.” Superbad fans unite! There was also a dance battle and a fake arrest of the groom? Anything goes at a wedding! We left around 11:30 because we missed our dog, but don’t think we didn’t take cupcakes to go 🙂
Sunday started with another 5-mile run. I later made a “cinco de miles” joke to Joey and he told me it didn’t really work… rude! Then I picked up iced coffee, then I made a trip to the store (even though we had JUST had our groceries delivered because they always mess stuff up, ugh!), then we threw together salads and ourselves just in time for the Rockies game because… Lori’s birthday!!! We had taco lunch before, then sat in some amazing seats for the game and hey, THEY WON. Obviously had to celebrate with ice cream afterward. This is maybe the second time this week that we’ve been to Smith + Canon, a brand new coffee/ice cream shop on Colfax. I cannot believe how good this ice cream is!
Back at home, I walked Dog (did I mention we call him this now?…) and it felt like summertime out there ♥ Then, when the sun went down, we sat down for GOT and I’m still not really sure how I felt about the episode. I did not see much of it coming, but surprise doesn’t equate enjoyment. Mostly, I don’t know if the show is actually going here or not, but the “Mad Queen” discourse I’ve seen online is endlessly boring to me. Daenerys is a woman in a position of power and GASP, shows emotion, so she must be “mad.” Gosh, where have I see this story line before?? What did everyone else think??
