Summer is Here!

It is finally sunny, hot, and NOT raining out here in Denver! I love Summer time here and am so happy that we are probably not going to get any more snow until this upcoming winter again (you’d be surprised though…last year it snowed in June…).

This past week I made a delicious summer dinner of squash/zuchinni (sautéed with garlic), baked sweet potatoes, and turkey meatloaf (my trick is to add a little bit of parmesan to the mix…and also oregano, parsley, and basil) smothered in BBQ sauce before baking.

On Friday night, Matt and I watched “Still Alice”. I read the book during our trip to Mexico this winter, and Julianna Moore was pretty incredible in the film version. Such a heartbreaking story.

On Saturday morning we woke up and cooked a large brunch. Banana pancake + Turkey bacon + scrambled eggs. YUM!

That day we sat out by the pool and read our books (I am re-reading The Sun Also Rises)…then went on a walk at Wash Park and saw this cute little family of ducks! I also ran errands and then got ready for a girls night out with my girl friends!

The girls and I had a long cocktail hour at Emily’s condo, and then went to Historian/Punch Bowl Social/and Irish bar. We had such a fun night per usual!

Emily’s friend Kristin was in town from PA and she was a total gem!

On Sunday, first thing I facetimed my Dad to wish him a happy birthday!!!! What a lucky daughter I am to have this guy as my Dad! He’s the best! LOVE YOU DAD!

Sunday afternoon I worked out and took a nap–then hit up the store for some supplies for a birthday BBQ we went to at our friend Stef’s house on Sunday evening for Kerry’s 33rd birthday party! We had a nice time, the weather was perfect, and everyone brought such awesome food!
A great Summer weekend in the books!
