What I Instagramed This Weekend

December 12, 2011

My solution to crappy lighting is to instagram everything. Which isn’t entirely realistic considering I don’t have a smartphone of any sort. But I think Joey is getting used to me commandeering his iPhone and referring to it as “mine.”

Anyways, this weekend was such a good one, filled with holiday festivities galore. Now, that’s my kind of weekend! Let’s take a look at what I instagramed, shall we?

Friday afternoon surprise = a package from Shanna of Shanna Like Banana.

Full of eggnogy goodies and tea!

She knows me too well.
I may or may not be eating one of those cookies crumbled over oatmeal as we speak…

Friday night dinner = Hapa Sushi

We tried to get in at The Med, but a 2-hour wait doesn’t really work for me. We went to Hapa instead and got sat right away, plus we hadn’t been to what used to be one our favorite restaurants in probably a year! The horror. My sushi craving is officially satisfied.




Friday night entertainment = “a live radio play” version of It’s a Wonderful Life, put on by the Colorado Shakespeare Festival.

I had reservations about seeing a radio play, but the CSF actors are always so great, I figured this would be good too. Although not as exciting as watching them act things out, I thought it was so cool to see them make all the sound effects and use different voices for different characters.


Saturday involved shopping in new boots.


Lunch at Mod Market.

LOVE Mod Market.


Curried Split Pea Soup + Edamame Hummus Sandwich.

And Sunday was all about Gingerbread Men.



Man down!

Oh and the last exciting purchase on Saturday was an early Christmas present to ourselvesโ€ฆ a new laptop! And not just any laptop, a MacBook Pro!


We’ve been saving since my laptop stopped working at the beginning of the year, so we’re pretty excited and Joey’s been wanting to go Mac for a while. It’s been quite the learning experience so far and now I know how my dad feels when he calls and asks me things like “how do I save something?” or “where did my document go after I saved it?”

And I’m not going to lie, I’m really missing Windows Live Writer right now. I’m currently using Ecto, but it’s just not the same. Anyone with a Mac who can recommend a good free blog writing service?

Happy Monday!


What was the most exciting part of your weekend?

Sushi, yay or nay?

Have you ever made Gingerbread Men from scratch??

    OH MAN SUSHI…it looks amazing! I bought a groupon for sushi a few days ago and can’t wait to use it! I have a Mac but have not found any good blog writers for free. I write inside WordPress and like it just fine but maybe that’s because I’ve never used Live Writer before?

    Never been a huge fan of sushi, although I like veggie ones once in a while.
    Oh, and you will fall in love with your mac ๐Ÿ™‚

    I haven’t had sushi in so long… we never get it because it, “DOesn’t fill me up!” (<—boyfriend). I finally have plans with a friend to get it this week.
    I also love your boots. I am seriously coveting a pair of brown boots… they're all too expensive or too tight (though I don't think my calves are particularly thick.)
