Weekend Things

Coming at you a day (and a half) later than usual because my September Memory-a-Day post seemed more time-sensitive, but please do not think it means my weekend wasn’t exciting because it WAS!


Friday Rockies game!  We won!  There were four home runs!  It was COLD!


Saturday, we met this cutie and his parents at Acova for brunch.  Mason kicked his shoes off within 5 minutes of being in the restaurant and it really made me wish I was a baby 🙂  Despite how chilly it was on Friday, Saturday’s weather was perfect so after we finished eating, we took Mason outside to play and he did a little dance for us that I can’t stop thinking/smiling about ♥

Spent the afternoon at Becca’s 30th birthday party!  And did everyone watch the SNL Season Opener?  Look, I watched all 8 hours of that Kavanaugh hearing and Matt Damon KILLED it.


Got up Sunday to go on a run then busted out some chores before heading to another Rockies game.  It was way hotter than I anticipated but melt-y mess aside, this game was so so exciting!!!  Back at home, we finished lunch salads, walked the pup and made Black Bean Plantain Enchiladas for dinner.  They were really really good!

Meanwhile, today I am a ball of nerves because the Rockies are down to their one last chance and I still have PTSD from last year’s Wild Card game.  Pray for us!

Weekend Things



Had dinner at Biker Jim’s!  My mom dropped her hot dog out of the bun, onto the floor and I was about to cut her off but then she was only drinking soda.

Family Rockies Game!  My aunt told my mom she wasn’t likely to see a win, but HA! Aunt Trica, you were wonderfully wrong 😛

Ate a mini Chantilly back at our place!  We each ate a piece then stood around our kitchen island eating the one single piece that was left.  It was truly the best ♥




Pancakes!  Honey and Oat, to be exact.

Took our pup on a long walk + pulled 3 squash!  He — and we — lasted a whole 45 minutes and it felt so nice and refreshing.

Peyton is 1!  It’s a lot of pressure to have to perform a cake smashing in front of a group of people.

Rockies Game (again)!  One of our suppliers gave us tickets and the seats were SO GOOD!  I maybe also had beer and baseball stadium pizza for dinner.  Gotta know when to lower your standards.  We won again!



Brunch!  I go through phases where I desperately want to be a brunch person, but then there’s that thing where we always wake up early and I’m not about to wait till 10 AM to eat.  We slept in on Sunday, so brunch it was!  Candela‘s chilaquiles are seriously my favorite ♥

Sunday stuff!  Aka a quick trip to Whole Foods before walking over to get a pedicure at Base Coat, then coming back home to pressure cook some beans and start lunch for the week.  (Also, Rockies won again!  Sweep!)

Yoga!  I hadn’t been to Sunday afternoon yoga in far too long and was really really missing it.  It was just as relaxing and energizing as I’d hoped it would be and I’m really glad I made time to go.

Summer Chipotle Chicken Cobb Salad!  You can probably tell from the pictures, but the whole weekend was semi-cool and overcast — a glimpse of fall during summer is always okay with me — but it was just nice enough to grill some chicken and corn for this salad.

Hope your weekend was good!
