Weekend Things

Is it really Wednesday and I”m just getting around to posting about last weekend?  Must mean I’ve been busy.  Or lazy?  Who knows, but here we are mid-way to the next weekend and it’s now or never!

We went to the Rockies game on Friday and though it was a bit chiller than I would have liked, it all seemed fine when the Rockies were up 9-3 and I thought it’d maybe be enough of a blowout to leave early.  Then the Brewers tied it up in the 9th and I was BEYOND over it.  We ended up leaving so we didn’t have to face the eventually loss in person but BLEH, what a disappointing game.

We did the Cystic Fibrosis Walk Saturday morning and despite how gloomy this picture looks, halfway around Sloan’s Lake the sun came out and it got hot!  We were out of town during the walk last year, so it felt good to be back!  Plus there was a BBQ at Katie and Andrew’s afterwards, aka my first opportunity to make Broccoli Crunch and eat a bratwurst with a lunchtime beer.  BBQ season is the best season!

We watched Guardians of the Galaxy (we finally know how it ends!) that night and hi, my name is Lauren and I only watch Marvel movies now.  I actually think Thor Ragnarock is much funnier but that opening scene of Chris Pratt dancing to “Come and Get Your Love” is amazing!

We took our moms to The Bindery for Mother’s Day Brunch on Sunday ♥  Joey and I maybe forced them both to order Mimosas Momosas and look how pretty the Mimosa Special was!  Please note that it didn’t snow on Mother’s Day this year!  Felt weird to go home and do nothing afterwards but we snuggled our dog and watched Doctor Strange (by far my least favorite…) and I even made a batch of freezer cookies because we were out (the horror!).

Later that afternoon, we made our way over to Keith & Joanne’s for April/May birthdays and Mother’s Day celebrating.  There was Coca-Cola pork tacos for dinner and Chantilly + homemade Oreo ice cream for dessert so I was in my happy place.  Does this mean we can officially put Joey’s birthday to rest??  Really stretched that one out this year 😛

Wishing you all a good rest of the week!

Weekend Things

This weekend was good all around, but here are the highlights!

Friday

  • Joey and I introduced Steve and Adam to the ChoLon soup dumpling and it’s official — that’s the single greatest thing I’ve ever eaten!  Doughnuts with Vietnamese Coffee Ice Cream for dessert, obviously 🙂
  • Convinced Joey to watch Moonstruck because he’d never seen it and this is unacceptable.  Cher is such a boss and that final scene is truly amazing!
  • Rockies won!

Saturday

  • Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes — please don’t judge my caramelized banana slices, I know they look semi-gross
  • Cleaning the whole house like real true adults and not actually minding it because teamwork makes the dream work
  • Spending $100+ on fresh groceries then, uh… going out to dinner.  Illegal Pete’s forever!  I ate way too many chips and washed it down with a margarita
  • SNL and doggy cuddles to end the night ♥

Sunday

  • Ran 5 miles for the first time in a long time and it felt wonderful!
  • Drank iced coffee and finished Season 4 of Parks and Recreation
  • Cooked chickpeas in the pressure cooker and made lunch salads
  • Walked myself to Base Coat for a bright blue pedi, silently celebrated another Rockies win!
  • Read in the backyard
  • Cooked an amazing dinner (details to come!) and surprised Joey with a Molten Chocolate Cake for dessert ♥

How was your weekend??
