Weekend Recap: All Al Fresco


My weekend kicked off with a blast from the past, with an old friend visiting town. Liza and I went to college together, and also both worked at Deloitte as our first job out of undergrad (along with my good friend Kelly, who lives in Arvada and was the one to convince me to move to Colorado). This weekend, Liza and her husband Albert had gotten her parents to watch their twin girls, and were visiting to Colorado for an adult getaway, and with the possibility of potentially moving! Kelly booked spots for us to enjoy dinner on a patio …

Weekend Recap: Packed with Plans


Recap of January 11 and 12 This weekend was pretty busy – but all good things! And I was thrilled to get in a mix of both mountain and Front Range activities. When I left my downtown office on Friday, I walked out into a blur of snowflakes – the perfect setup for the night I had ahead. My friend Chris and I were going to a screening of a Warren Miller ski film at Stoney’s, a gigantic sports bar in Denver. Although it was packed when I walked in, Chris had scored us seats in a section that didn’t …

Weekend Recap: The End of 2017


The last week of 2017 was filled with a lot of mishaps – and yet, I didn’t consider it a bad week at all. I think that’s a pretty good representation of my year as a whole. I had some ups and downs, but for me, 2017 was most notable in that I developed a sense of optimism that got me through it all. That was definitely evident over the last week! My mom and I flew to Colorado on Christmas evening. As I already wrote to kick off last weekend’s recap, I promptly came down with strep throat on …

Prepping for My Coloradoversary

St. Patrick's Day House Party

This week is both my three year anniversary of moving to Colorado, and also my two year anniversary of moving into my house. Since I decided I didn’t want to make Irish food, I thought my “Coloradoversary” would be a great theme for my March party, which is tonight. I can’t believe that I’ve already been living in Colorado for three years! The time flies. Sometimes it feels like I was living in Manhattan just yesterday, and other times it feels like I’ve been here forever. I truly can’t imagine living anywhere else (even with all the travel I do that …

Choosing The Simple Life… and Accepting the Consequences


This weekend, with Adam‘s help, I went back to the simple life. We spent Friday night at the baseball game downtown, where my company hosts an annual event with amazing field-level seats. And then on Saturday, we planned literally nothing all day long, slept late, and got errands done. I now have a new stainless steel dishwasher! (The old one broke, which means I am officially replacing my kitchen appliances one at a time until everything is stainless.) Adam installed the dishwasher for me while I tackled learning how to reupholster the chairs of my new (to me) dining set …
