This Weekend I…

March 19, 2012

Started Friday off right by treating my new co-workers to red green velvet cupcakes.

Hearing how good they were and that someone wanted the buttercream frosting recipe did not get old.

Ended Friday right by going to dinner and a movie with Hannah and Josh.

Guys, I was skeptical beforehand, but 21 Jump Street was hilarious.  And I’m hard to impress.

Realized James Franco has an equally good looking brother.

Good genes in that Franco family, I tell ya.

Convinced Joey that going in to work on a gorgeous Saturday morning was a terrible idea.

Lounging in bed and eating a leisurely breakfast was a much better one.

Hiked up to the Royal Arch in sunny 70 degree weather.

Realized there’s nothing like a good hike to make you feel like you’ve never worked out in your entire life.

I woke up on yesterday feeling like I climbed stairs for three hours.  Oh wait, that’s because I did.

Remembered how much I hate hiking back down a mountain.

Even more so when it’s snowy and slightly icy.  I slipped about a million times and managed to fall while standing still.

Got coerced into drinking a pitcher of “Strong Island Iced Tea” by myself.

Had to have my sister drive me home from lunch…

Slept from 4 PM to 7 PM and only woke up because this was waiting for me.

My mom makes corned beef and cabbage every year for St. Patrick’s Day.

Every year we talk about how good it is and that we should have it more often, then forget until the next St. Patrick’s Day.

Fact: I could an entire head of that cabbage by myself.

Partied too  hard at 2 PM and ended up staying in on St. Patrick’s night.


Bought some really nice things for 50% off at Banana Republic.

It pays to have friends willing to share good deals with you.  Thanks, Jenn!  I’m about to look all kinds of professional at work.

Ended Sunday with yoga and a delicious bowl of corn and potato chowder.


Learned that weekends go way too fast.


What did you do this weekend?

Do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?

What was the last really funny movie you saw?

    I want to hike more.. I just never get around to it. I tend to stick to exercise that require no planning.
    I have finals this week so I spent all weekends with my books… but I did got to my SIL’s baby shower. That was… girly. and cutesy. But it wasn’t text books!

    Looks like so much fun! You know I love a good hike! To me it’s so much easier to do exercise when there’s beautiful scenery to look forward to. 🙂

    Haha I feel you on drinking too early on and not making it out, that happened too often in college 😉

    I also did a little trail-ing this past weekend — I went trail running instead of hiking but it was perfect pre- St. Patty’s Day activity. 😉

      I’m impressed!! We saw a few runners on the trail and I was amazed considering I was just walking and was so out of breath!!
