01. Beer list at Clips of Faith / 02. Vibrant colors after the rain / 03. Kobe on one of our Sunday walks
Is it just me or are the weekends never long enough?
This weekend was absolutely lovely. Friday night we went to an event at Independence Park — New Belgium Brewing’s Clips of Faith. We tried awesome beers (my favorites included Cocoa Mole, Super IPA, and Red Hoptober — but I didn’t get to try them all) and got to watch some short independent films while sitting on the lawn. We brought Kobe with us and he loved it.
Saturday we took Kobe to the dog park early in the morning and it was so beautiful out we decided to call some friends to meet us out there. We spent the better half of the day outside tossing the football, playing with the dogs, and listening to music. After all that sun and some beers I was quite tired so we ended up lounging around that evening.
Sunday was chilly and rainy so we spent most of the day inside watching football. Jordan made us breakfast and I took Kobe on several walks. Then we cuddled up and watched the 2 hour season finale of my favorite show, Hell On Wheels! Lily better not be dead! I’m ready for the new season now, thanks!
Happy Friday, friends!
Do you have any plans this weekend?
I have nothing particular in mind except that I plan to spend as much time away from the condo as possible. I’m thinking a morning trip to Crowder’s Mountain, a visit or two to Barnes & Noble, several trips to the dog park, and maybe an evening picnic to the park with a good book and a blanket.
As I sip my dirty chai this morning from my office I wish so badly I could be back home, snuggled in bed with my sweet little pup, wearing this comfy looking sweater that I’m currently obsessing over. Too bad it’s more than my car insurance (which is pretttyy high up there with a brand new car).
We joined some of Jordan’s co-workers out on Friday night and very happily spent all Saturday in bed or laying on the couch. We watched plenty of tv, movies, and I even read a little Pride & Predjudice (working on those 30 books!) I almost forgot! I soaked in the tub for nearly an hour while reading — it. was. wonderful. Jordan even boiled a pot of water a couple of times to keep the water nice and hot. After being away from home two weekends in a row it was greatly needed. I woke up Sunday feeling super relaxed and energized.
Not that I ever want to get rid of Jordan, but he had plans to golf with his dad and brother Sunday morning and I was secretly excited. I cherish time I get to spend alone — as alone as I can get with Kobe. I took Kobe to the dog park for 2 hours (TWO HOURS!) and spend the rest of the morning cleaning the condo. I finished by noon and was able to meet a neighbor at The Corner Pub to watch some football and enjoy a cold beer or two (I drank SweetWater Blue Ale — a hint of blueberries, delicious!) After the Panthers game Jordan returned home and we wrapped up the evening together with some take-out Italian & the Giants game. Disappointing loss!
I absolutely did not want to leave for work this morning, it’s rainy and dreadful outside and Kobe was being extra cuddly and precious. It’s like he knows when it’s Monday and we have to return to work — he is ten times more kissy and cuddly in trying to convince us to stay!
