Weekend Memories Monday

July 25, 2011

Okay, so this post totally started out as a “Six Thing Sunday” post, but then Sunday just slipped right away from me.  And I also accumulated more than 6 things, so really that wouldn’t have worked anyways.

I had plans to see Harry Potter on Friday night, but plans fell through 😦  To say I was bummed would be a huge understatement.  But there were definitely some other highlights.

1. Ice cream sharing in downtown Louisville.


When in doubt, always always go with chocolate chip cookie dough. 

We tried out Sweet Cow and left with happy taste buds and a Sweet Cow tattoo, score!

I wish I could transport you all to Louisville for a few minutes.  It’s the cutest town and I think I totally took for granted that I grew up there.

2. Breakfast at the Farmers’ Market.


I wish this plate was more photogenic, since I eat it so often.

Scrambleds, polenta, puttanesca and focaccia. <— I wish I didn’t have to look at the spelling for so many Italian words.  And no, scrambleds is not an Italian word.  Or even a word at all.

Fact: Breakfast tastes better when it’s on Dad.

3. Crazy FM produce.




Fact: It’s incredibly hard to not buy odd colored produce “just because.”  I’m glad I resisted and my wallet is too.

I ended up with some onions, corn, cauliflower, yellow squash and some patty pan squash, which were too adorable to resist.

And now for a segment I like to call “Pictures taken in my car” or “Pictures of me holding something.”  I hope you enjoy.

4. Tree of Life = weirdest movie ever.


Have you seen the previews for this movie?  It’s Brad Pitt and Sean Penn and that’s all I needed to know.  I was sold.  I really wish I could tell you what it was about or whether I even liked it, but I’m still scratching my head on this one. 

However, I do know that visually, this movie was astounding!

5. Lunch at the giant Boulder Whole Foods.



Vegetarian Banh Mi wrap.  Tofu sounded good, but in reality it wasn’t all that great.

But I did stock up on raisins, so I guess the annoying adventure through the parking lot was worth it.

“It’s getting real in the Whole Foods parking lot.”

6. This is what your iPod looks like if you knock it off the treadmill mid-run.


I’d like to explain how it ended up wedged in the machine, but I don’t know the proper names for treadmill parts and I fear talking about “the spinning part” and “that side piece” will just confuse everyone.

And to think I always thought that case was such a waste of money.

7. Kombucha treat.


Must grocery shopping make me so parched?

8. This is necessary if you want to put your Kombucha in your parents’ fridge.


It worked.

9. Long run this week was a 5-miler.


And I totally JUST took that picture.

Never underestimate the peace of mind that comes with an early morning solo run. 

I’m going to go ahead and call this one of my favorite runs ever.  I did not expect it to feel easy and was pleasantly surprised when it did! 


And that concludes my weekend memory recap.  This week I’ve got my mom’s birthday, packing, paint color picking and all the “fun” stuff that comes with moving.


Go to ice cream flavor?

Have you seen (or at least heard of) Tree of Life?

Share a weekend memory with me!

    I like the “not dad’s”. Straight and to the point!
    My favorite weekend memory was cycling downtown with my BF to the Portland Saturday Market! It was good to get practice riding in downtown bike lanes that suddenly end for no reason and force you into traffic. (And they say Portland is the best city to ride a bike in..)

      You’re braver than me! I went on a bike ride over the Golden Gate Bridge last summer and it made me really nervous to have so many cars and people around and once we got into town I had my brakes on the entire time going down hills!

    Sounds like a fabulous weekend! How did you like the Kombucha? I tried one a few weeks ago and hated it. I think it might have been the flavor I picked though (Cranberry). What flavor is your favorite? I want to give Kombucha another chance! 😉

      Kombucha is definitely an aquired taste. I was weirded out the first time I tried it, but it’s grown on me. Cranberry sounds like it might be kind of tart. I like Trilogy and Multi-Green best!

    OMG I nearly died laughing at the NOT DAD’s label on your kombucha! My little bro is infamous for pretending he can’t read when I come home to visit so everything I put in the fridge goes in his belly! I can relate 😉 lol

    So funny that you had to label your kombucha. I do not have that problem yet….well except when it comes to my yogurt. Kohl always wants to eat that!

    Weekend memory would have to be church service on Sunday. It was a real tear jerker. Our youth came back from camp, it is inspiring and amazing when you hear teenagers talk about Jesus 🙂

    Hadn’t heard of that movie, hmm. I went with the Captain America-everyone’s-heard-of-it movie choice. Meh. Fact: ANY food is better when it’s on the fam 😀 And I had to similarly label my food when I was living with the parents. But it was still eaten most of the time anyway.

    Never heard of Tree of life! but fave ice cream flavour is a tie- Mint chocolate chip and strawberry 🙂 I am hosting my first giveaway today! got all the stuff ready for it on the weekend!

    That FM breakfast looks SOOO good!! As does all the produce. I can absolutely relate to wanting to try certain foods just because they look funky, too 😛 Often, I end up disappointed…

    BAM! Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is the ONLY WAY! 😀

    Sounds like a fun, and tasty, weekend! Ice cream is definitely a must in terms of good me memories, as is labelling (or hiding) your favorite foods so that no one else steals them. I bury mine in the vegetable drawer 😆 And when it comes to ice cream, my favorite is either chocolate chip cookie dough, or mint chocolate. But then sometimes all I want is simple vanilla with some chocolate and nut toppings. Heck, if it’s ice cream, I’ll take it and smile no matter what 😀

      Plain vanilla with peanut butter used to be one of my favorite things as a kid. I wouldn’t suggest you try it, though 🙂

  10. July 26, 2011 4:25 PM

    BAHHA I love that “NOT DAD’S” label..I need to do that for my roommate JEEZ. I’m tired of hiding (or hoarding) things in my room. I’m also a bad sharer so whatever. I’m with ya on the choc chip cookie dough ALL the way! -Jamie
