Kickoff to Summer

May 28, 2012

Happy Memorial Day!

Last night I spilled a glass of water and it got to our new expensive Macbook and now it won’t turn on.  So I’m using our old Dell and I think it took about 20 minutes for Windows Live Writer to even open.

Happy Memorial Day, indeed!

I’ll worry about my laptop tomorrow.  For now, I’m going to enjoy what’s left of this perfect weekend.  I know summer doesn’t officially start till June 20th, but I say it starts during Memorial Day weekend.  And if this weekend has been any sign of how the rest of the summer will go, I think it’s going to be an awesome one.

Full of laughter.

Friday night entertainment.

And colorific fun.

I ran the Denver Color Run on Saturday with my college roommate and can I just say best race concept ever?  It’s basically like having a colored powered sugar food fight.  And then you look like this afterwards.

I’m suddenly glad I didn’t buy new running shoes last week.

If you’ve never had to wash green paint out of the inside of your ear, you haven’t lived.

And delicious summertime food.  Obviously.  Who do you think I am?

We made this on Saturday night (with shrimp instead of salmon) and I thought it was simple and delicious. 

I love anything with mango salsa lately.

And outdoorsy Boulder things.


I’m sort of ashamed to admit I’ve lived in Boulder all my life and this was the first time I’ve ever been to the Boulder Creek Festival.  There were a million tents selling this, that and the other, but I actually thought the best part was this random guy balancing rocks in the creek.  I mean, how cool is that?!


Second best was watching kids tumble around in these giant inflatable balloons.  My sister and I had a good laugh over this.

And of course, no Memorial Day is complete without the Bolder Boulder.


Plain and simple: I love this race.  Marshmallows, Otter Pops, Slip n’ Slides and all.

Somewhere in there I also fit in napping, shopping and laptop-ruining. 

Now it’s dinner and Rockies.  Guess where I’m going, guys.  Just guess!


How did you spend Memorial Day weekend?

Ever ruined an electronic device?

Anyone else run a race this weekend?  I’ll share all my other BB pictures later this week.  Granted I have a working laptop…

    So sad about the laptop! At least since it’s new it’s under warranty, right? I’m doing a color run in a few months, I’m so excited! Everyone who does one seems to love it! 🙂
