Weekend Recap

I'm still trying to wake up as I type this but suffice it to say, I had a pretty damn good weekend.

Friday- I came home early from work and watched Rescue Me and Entourage. Then I went through some of the junk mail that has been stacking up and shredded that. Believe me, I wanted to be home then. It was good to just relax and text a new boy. New boy and I went to high school together but he was one year ahead of me. We recently reconnected on Facebook and have been texting ever since. He lives in Vermont so there's no way I'd date him, but he's a good friend for now.

Saturday- Woke up semi-early and went up to Boulder with M for a hike. Only it started to rain, so instead we grabbed yummy breakfast sandwiches and sat in my car until it stopped. Then we hiked for an hour or two, took a break and people watched for awhile in this beautiful garden. And then hiked back to the car. I had an awesome time being outdoors, hiking, and having good company. I definitely want to go more often. After that I came home and rested for awhile and rented Bride Wars with Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson. It wasn't great. I'm glad that I rented it for $1 from McDonalds.

Sunday- Slept in a bit, then went out to breakfast and church with the family. Then went to Crate & Barrel with my Mom to buy new mixing bowls. After that I went and hung out with B. We watched I love you, man. It was pretty funny. Then I left and came home, and as soon as I got home, I got a text from Aaron, who wanted to go out to dinner. So I met him for dinner at Steuben's, where I got mac & cheese and tried their hush puppies, corn, and french fries. Out of all the sides, I would have to say that my favorite was the hush puppies because they were coated in sugar :) Oh, and we tried their peach cobbler and this crazy apple dessert, which was so good. It's basically an apple coated with carmel and granola, drizzled with chocolate with a big scoop of ice cream in the middle of it topped with a strawberry and more chocolate. Yummmy! I'm glad I went, and we got to catch up. It was definitely something different to do on a Sunday night when I'm usually just at home.

I definitely had a very busy, but fun-filled weekend. How was yours?

Peach cobbler????!!!! OMG I am so ordering some for pick up after work today. That stuff is like crack to me - maybe even more so than Enstroms!

Sounds like a good time. I wish I lived closer to the mountains so that I could do some hiking. My kids have alluded to wanting to do it, too.

Speaking of, my weekend was filled with fights over Legos. Here, I was thrilled that they were playing together, only to have that thrill dashed seconds later as fights erupted over who got what blue Lego.

Your weekend sounds like a lot of fun :) I love hiking and just being outside in general, so I completely understand where you're coming from.

Oooh the sunday dinner sounds so good. I'm hungry right now and craving peach cobbler. LOL.

I haven't hiked in a while, I'm so indoor all the time these days even when I'm out there I'm usually in the car to go places. Baaaad. Its so hot over here.

M- It was really good, especially with the ice cream and it was nice and warm...okay I'll stop right now. Tell me how you like it when you try it!

Mjenks- Kids can be so unpredictable!

Jill- Eat some, you'll like it :)

Taylor- I'm glad to know someone else enjoys hiking too! :)

Andhari- I don't blame you at all. When I was in China, I felt so gross with all the humidity and hotness that I stayed inside when I could too.

I miss Entourage! I'm going to have to wait until this season ends and comes out on DVD.
