Weekend Recap: Wine Tasting and Cross-Country Skiing

Leadville_Mineral_Belt_Trail_XC (1)

After the five days up in Minturn for last weekend’s ski certification, I was excited to have a weekend where I could stay home and see my mom and Sadie more… with nothing really planned. Though you know me – in spite of having no actual plans, I ended up having a pretty busy time 🙂 My weekend kicked off with a wine tasting happy hour for work. I was the event organizer, and with a limited (though generous) budget, I had the option of hiring someone to do the wine tasting for us, or doing it myself and then …

Weekend Recap: Superbowl Sunday

Superbowl_2021

Friday was a busy day at work, culminating in a call with one of the partners who’s been trying to convince me to move over to a new leadership role within the firm. It’s a super intriguing role, but it’s also scary to move from the practice I’ve literally worked in for the last ten years! However, my friend Mike recently left the firm and then came back and joined that practice, so I’ve had a bit of a view of what it’s like “on the inside” – and it seems like an awesome fit and a good career move. …

Weekend Recap: Netflix and Hills

Maple_Streusel_French_Toast

Once again, I started my Friday with a hike – this time up Rattlesnake Gulch to the Continental Divide Overlook, a shorter hike so I could be home in time for my 8am call. Although there were a few icy sections, Sadie and I managed to finish the entire roundtrip in just 75 minutes. I am looking forward to setting some hiking PRs when the snow melts and we can go fast! After a full day of work, I headed to Safeway to pick up a frozen pizza (their Safeway Select brand is my favorite frozen pizza), and my mom …

Weekend Recap: Three Day MLK Weekend

Running_Down_Doudy_Draw

This year, my company declared Martin Luther King Day a holiday – so I went into Friday knowing I had a three day weekend ahead. To boost my mood even more, I took Sadie for an early morning hike up to Royal Arch – and we had an amazing time! It was an absolutely beautiful hike, and even though it was only 21°, we were both bundled up and it didn’t feel that cold. I was grateful that the cold kept other people off the trail – we had it almost all to ourselves, and saw only two other pairs …

Weekend Recap: Happy New Year!

NYE_Ball_Drop

Although my consulting firm had our holiday shutdown and I was technically off work all week, I had a different kind of work scheduled – ski instructing at Beaver Creek! I had an absolutely amazing time teaching seven classes, mostly levels 4 and 5 (linking turns and getting parallel on easy blue terrain), and even ended up with a high-ranking political official in one of my classes! (No, not Mike Pence, though he was apparently skiing in Beaver Creek all week.) I was especially psyched that several of my guests came back for repeat classes with me, so I got …
