A little Blues

What a weekend! I have been trying to take it pretty easy during these June weekends of Summer since we have such a busy July ahead of us. On Wednesday, I went for a long walk at Wash Park with my friends Emily & Laura and then afterwards we had dinner at True Food. Thursday night, Matt and I made mushroom risotto together and watched as streets essentially flooded throughout Denver–only to wake up to a dry city.

Friday night, Matt took me on a date to Carmine’s on Penn. We have been wanting to try out this restaurant for awhile, and the food (Italian) was delicious! We also really loved the outdoor-covered seating and the staff was really great. It was a lovely night!

On Saturday, I had someone from Craigslist come to my apartment to take my BIG ASS Floral couch that I somehow got stuck with throughout the past few years. I listed it as free and was surprised when someone really wanted it. It’s super comfortable and well-made, but I was just happy to have someone come and move it out of my apartment for me, since we are moving the first weekend in August (to another neighborhood in Denver). On Sunday, a cute couple came and bought my dinning room table (a cheap Ikea find that I got a lot of use out of over the years, but won’t be coming with us on our upcoming move!).

Saturday afternoon, we went to our friends Alli & Erics’ house for a shrimp boil. Then we all headed to the S. Pearl Street Bluegrass Festival for the afternoon. It was hot hot hot outside, but we had a blast.

Later that night we ordered Anthony’s Pizza for dinner and watched the movie “Nick & Norah’s Playlist” which was super cute and enjoyable.
Sunday, we went to our friends Greg & Natalie’s new beautiful house for their housewarming & engagement party. It was so nice to enjoy some BBQ on their back porch and talk to the girls while the guys played ping pong in the basement. Natalie and Greg have such a nice home and I’m really looking forward to their March wedding!
