Weekend Things: It’s June!

We are only three days in, but… JUNE ♥

Actually, I should mention that I’m still experiencing these random itch attacks, including one at the Rockies game on Friday night, and I just don’t really know what’s causing it or how to make it stop.  I thought I’d turned a corner because I was able to make it through all of Saturday without taking Benadryl but then I had another one last night.  Ugh!

Itching aside, June is already off to a wondrous start.  The Rockies have won eight games in a row, our pup has a clean bill of health, Joey has our garage and backyard looking GREAT, garden veggies are popping up and I’ve been to the Farmers’ Market, a facial, a pedicure and yoga, so I’m feeling extra relaxed.  More June vibes, please!

It recently occurred to me that while I’ve been to Biker Jim’s a million times, I’ve only tried maybe four of their dogs, so I’m now on a mission to try them all!  I was mildly alarmed that Alaskan Reindeer was not listed on the menu as that’s my absolute favorite, but I’m hoping they were just out that day and it’s not a permanent change.  Anyway, I tried the Jack-A-Lope and it was okay but a bit too spicy and also I couldn’t stop thinking about what it was made of.  In other news, Rockies won by a lot and we got this Ryan McMahon-signed ball before the game started!

Up and at em on Saturday to take our pup to the vet.  It’s a new location and the vet we’d been seeing left, so we were all a little worried (or maybe just Andi and I were).  The way our vet works, you drop your pet off then come back to get them later and this seems weird to me.  He was ready like an hour later!  Anyway, after dropping him off, we hit up the Union Station Farmers’ Market for the first time this season!!!  Early season can be a bit boring but we left with chives, kale, tomatoes, a red onion, radishes and a little strawberry danish for my mom ♥

When we got back, I briefly helped in the garage, then we picked our pup back up and ate lunch before I headed into Louisville for a facial that I definitely fell asleep during.

We had planned to see a movie that night (The Souvenir and not Rocket Man, shockingly) but it was already 4:30, we had yet to shower or make any dinner plans, plus I looked over at the couch and Andi seemed SO out of it and was babying his right leg, where I assume they gave him his shots, so we called it quits on the movie and decided to have a leisurely night at home.  We made these stuffed poblano peppers from a recipe Wayne sent us and it was truly delicious!  And we watched Thor, which I’d never seen and found wildly entertaining.  It’s not Ragnarok funny, but it’s still pretty funny!  “This mortal form grows weak!  I need sustenance!” is definitely what I’m saying every time I’m hungry from now on.

Sunday, Sunday, so good to me.  Joey wanted waffles.  Okay!!  After lounging and watching The Kitchen for a bit, we got ourselves off the couch and I hit the grocery while Joey hit Home Depot and Lowe’s.  Andi was sad to see Joey go!  I had just enough time in between grocery shopping and lunch pick up to make some snack balls that I hope to tell you about soon.  Then I took myself to a pedicure followed by yoga.  Bliss!

When I got home, Joey had been busy busy in the garage/backyard and now we have new drip lines, a super organized pegboard and planter boxes.  How is he so amazing?!  We put together a salad dinner that was good but felt like it was missing something… meat? beans? cheese? all of the above?  And then we watched the final (or is it??) movie of the Before Trilogy.  The second and third movies just made me appreciate the first movie more but I did like this third one quite a bit.  The range of emotion felt more advanced.  Joey laughed out loud when Ethan Hawke said “are you the mayor of Crazy Town?” and I look forward to him using that line on me later…

June is off to a good (albeit itchy) start and I can’t wait to see where the rest of the month takes us!

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 🙂
