Weekend Things

Joey was in Breckenridge this weekend, so I lived a third wheel life and loved it?  Sometimes Joey goes out of town and all I want to do is not tell anyone and hide at home by myself, but I wasn’t really feeling like being alone all weekend, so I lined up plans with my sister and Wayne for Friday and time with Hannah, Josh and Mason for Saturday and even though he wasn’t impressed by any of the dancing I did and didn’t even want to sleep in bed with me, a little dog made for a fine companion the rest of the time.

Was it some crazy coincidence that my sister and I were both looking up a new hot chicken place last week??  Or do we just follow the same Instagram accounts? 😛  The Budlong is new at Zeppelin Station and Zeppelin Station is new(ish) to Denver, so we needed to try out both.  I feel like whoever put the plans together for Zeppelin made some questionable choices as to the location and layout, but this chicken was real good and even better, the company.  I love them both and to use the millennial term of the moment, I felt so seen after talking to them all night ♥

Who knows what I did on Saturday, except I do remember going to the grocery, making some granola and seeing baby garlic coming up in our garden box!  I forgot we planted that!  More importantly though, I met Hannah, Josh and Mason (so I guess I wasn’t really the third wheel, I was Mason’s date :P) at Steuben’s, where Mason showed us his muscles and ate only the bread pieces of everything Hannah put in front of him.  A child after my own heart!  We grabbed ice cream afterward and Mason was doing the most entertaining things like taking a shoe off, climbing on the table and making the funniest faces while eating from Hannah’s ice cream cone.  I love him so much!!! And his parents too 🙂

Back at home, I watched Rushmore for the first time (how??) and it was sort of refreshing to watch a Wes Anderson film before he’d dialed it up to an 11.

I got up and walked over to Huckleberry on Sunday morning because I was hellbent on enjoying an iced coffee this weekend.  Bonus: I finished my book club book!  I’ll tell you about how I didn’t like it later.  Afterward, I did Sunday chores — cooking beans, making salads, doing laundry, cleaning the bathroom — and even managed to sneak in an outdoor run that felt AMAZING!  Finally, Joey made it back home and right back into his arms Andi went.  But we’d made so much bonding progress!

How was your weekend??

Weekend Highlights

Today it is SNOWY and it took me and hour and ten minutes to get into work and I have a sore throat so let’s just think back on the weekend, okay?

Highlights include seeing Mason’s little smile as he peeked out the window at us (MY HEART!), Saturday morning at Rivers and Roads coffee shop, a relaxing day that ended with perfectly cooked steak and Bohemian Rhapsody (or more importantly, listening to Queen as we washed dishes afterward), waking up to pancakes and coffee and the best husband on Sunday, getting a haircut, having lunch with my mom and watching the SAG Awards.
