Weekend Things

I feel like I have so many good things to say about this weekend and unfortunately, none of them are Rockies related because OH MY GOD, the beginning of this season has been ROUGH.  Also rough was the fact that I managed to schedule a pedicure, a facial and a haircut and highlight in one weekend.  Life is so hard 😛

If it looks like we are melting in the sun it’s only because we were melting in the sun.  After last year’s Opening Day weather, I should’ve been grateful for warmth, but those first few innings were HOT.  Luckily there were clouds and a slight breeze later on but I think I still managed to get a sunburn.  It goes without saying at this point, but we had lunch at Biker Jim’s before the game and it’s official — I’m a fan of the new sidewinder fries!

Last year was miserable for weather reasons and this year was miserable for game play reasons.  It was 9-1 when we decided Little Man was a better place to spend the afternoon.  There was hardly a line and I couldn’t believe it!  Turns out Blake Street Bomber is just Space Junkie and my last bite was a piece of brownie covered in marshmallow cream so I guess I’ve never been happier?  Joey and crew went to Black Hawk that night, per Opening Day tradition, and I stayed home to shower off my sunscreen and feel ridiculously tired.

Saturday started with Whole Grain Carrot Cake Waffles that I loved and then I walked over to Base Coat for my first pedicure in MONTHS.  Felt so good.  I went with Taurus because Taurus Season is coming and also because I’d already decided I wanted a nice pink color.  I maybe emptied my entire purse and just had a book in there 😛

I saw those bright red tulips on my way home and was so happy about it.  SPRING ♥  Back at home, it was nice enough to throw together a salad and eat lunch outside.  The best!  Joey was out getting a haircut but proceeded to come home and tear out this tree stump and I have no idea how he did it without injury… I headed back out a bit later for a facial and even got to see my mom on my way out!  She and my dad were headed to a murder mystery dinner party later on, which sounded like my own personal nightmare but I thought it was cute they were going.

That night we ate leftovers and watched Avengers: Infinity War because um, I think we were half asleep the first time we watched it.  I just went back and re-read my initial reaction and was sort of shocked because, upon a re-watch, I really really liked it!  Plus it made a lot more sense.  Not only did we make it through this two and a half hour long movie (why though?) but we watched ALL of SNL after.  Who are we??  I had very low expectations of Kit Harington but then I thought he was great!  I guess I know nothing, Jon Snow.

Sunday started with Carrot Cake Overnight Oats (do I only eat carrot cake-flavored things now??) before I headed out to have my hair done.  The gal who does my hair is not only a master stylist but also my therapist?  She also does my sister and my mom’s hair, so we’re all just one big happy family.  Back at home, I threw together another amazing salad and how sad is it that hit-the-spot salads make me this happy?  Plus I got to eat outside again!

I helped Joey finish our salads for the week and read for a little bit before taking myself to yoga.  I had to park really far away because it was beautiful outside (YAY) and that meant all of Denver was out and about (NOT YAY) but I didn’t mind the walk and maybe took some glamour shots in the car before I got out.  Joey and Adam went to the Rockies game that night so more leftovers for me and I snuck in an episode of Mad Men.  Um how incredible is the final episode of Season 3??  “Joan.  What a good idea.” is my favorite line.

Please tell me how your weekend was, I’d love to hear 🙂
