This weekend, at least, was beautiful. On Saturday I went shopping at the outlet mall in Silverthorne, Colorado with my parents, my sister in law Sarah, my brother, my sister in law Jennifer, and my nieces.
Including this little strawberry:
Silverthorne is a little mountain town that has become quite commercialized, with big stores and outlet shops. It still boasts some good views, though:
|Gas station notwithstanding, of course.|
In addition to buying some shirts and pants for David (geez I'm married, aren't I?), I bought myself some new running shoes. But not just any running shoes, I bought stylish and pretty Nike running shoes:
After shopping all day Saturday I was exhausted and ready to chill at home, but we were committed to a party that our friend Adam was having to celebrate his new (and first) home! I have no pictures to prove this, but despite being tired at first I had a good time talking to some old friends and meeting new ones. Blech. That sounds a little too perfect and cliché, doesn't it? I suppose it would be more accurate to say that I did really enjoy seeing and talking with a few close friends, which was followed by some moments of feeling socially awkward and tired, which was followed by a decent conversation about books with a female author whom I had never met. At the very least I have some book recommendations now that I didn't have before the party.
Sunday was a day of relaxation, including a nice mountain bike ride with David. We went up Sunshine Canyon through Gold Hill, Colorado and towards the Peak to Peak highway, and it was really nice to be outside, riding, with David. We even argued about philosophy and politics. #truelove #istilldontknowwhatthesepoundsignsarefor
|Holy thighs, Batman!|
After our bike ride David commenced grading for an exam he gave recently, and I kicked off my Sunday TV program. I don't really care about football, but for some reason I still really like to watch it/have it on in the background on Sundays. It just seems right.
*Do you watch/follow football? Also, if you've had a baby, did you get chicken pox as a kid yourself or have the varicella vaccine before conceiving? Umm, just wondering...
