We had some celebrations to enjoy this weekend. Friday night Andy and I went out with our friends Shelly and Kevin to celebrate Kevin finishing his final rotation in his Pharmacy program (congrats, Kevin!). We went to a newish restaurant in our neighborhood called Table Top for dinner and drinks on the patio.

Sunday we celebrated, well, the beautiful warm weather! We met some friends out at a new restaurant in Uptown called B Side and spent some hours on the patio enjoying some porch pounder beers.

 A happy weekend, indeed!

Here are some photos from Andy & my week:

Andy and I grilled out Monday night :o) One of us was a more active participant than the other...

This sign at Niwot High School in Longmont, CO on Tuesday made me literally LOL.

They love their cowboys in Wyoming! At the state capitol (that's in Cheyenne for those of you wondering).

Did you know that WY was the first state or territory to allow women the right to vote? There's interesting history behind the law.

Inside the beautiful Wyoming state capitol.

Seen in Cheyenne, WY.

They leave me a sucker on my bed after tidying up the room. So sweet :o)

Joe, me, and Taylor. We were WY FBLA Business Presentation competition judges Thursday afternoon! 

I totally nailed this parallel park job downtown Cheyenne on Friday. And, it was on the driver's side.

Hello from Cheyenne, WY! I've been here since Tuesday late afternoon, and will be heading back tomorrow (Saturday) late afternoon to Denver. It's been a really energizing and productive trip up here, but I am soooo excited to be home with Andy and Ella, and probably some Saturday Station 26! But, before that, here's a picture of the Wyoming state capitol building cuz, really, it is lovely.

Dabbin' & Drinkin'

Heather, Noah, and I had dabbin' fever again last week. And this time we brought Andy and Shelly with us Friday night! We had the same overall outcome: Lots of fun, and zero $1,000 jackpots hit in our group.

Some Bingo players have their own personalized bags to carry their Bingo items.

Most people have a lot of Bingo cards, like the guy across the table from me. Now compare that with my one. But, even still, neither of us won.

Two peas in a pod.

Sometimes the Bingo caller takes too long to call numbers, and I paint myself with our daubers to entertain myself. 

Saturday I worked on campus all morning and a bit into the afternoon, and then immediately threw on a green dress and hopped the bus downtown to meet Andy who was at our friends Jen & Mark's place watching the St. Patrick's Day parade. I got downtown right as the parade ended (phooey!) but was able to enjoy the great company and beers at J&M's place, plus a couple of stylish Irish hats.

Sunday was our final Skee Ball game, which we lost SO HARD I am not sure we even tried? We drowned our sorrows at a few breweries nearby with some teammates and some friends who weren't going to say no to a sunny Sunday Funday on brewery patios!

Andy's, Christine's, and Nathan's beers looking colorful at Great Divide.

Lindsay's daughter was striking a pose for me at Vine Street!

Work and play will be spending a lot of time together over the weekends this spring. I'm figuring out my balance of being fulfilled throughout the week and weekend, and not getting too dragged down by the social gatherings I'm missing over the weekend days I do have work requirements. It's a work in progress.

Sunday Funday with Rob!

Grabbin some beers with this guy Tuesday night. 

 Moscow mule night for Andy & me on Wednesday. Andy says a big thanks to my mom & dad for these awesome mugs!

Light sweatshirt and jeans weather in Denver in early March.

Let's grill out! Yea, I know there's snow in the backyard, but it's spring!

Ella just ran and ran and ran circles in the backyard (can you see her track?). And then she was tired and just sat and sat and sat.

Me: Andy, I'm taking a picture - look natural. Andy: I don't know what to do, what do you want me to do, should I pose...? Me: Ok, I guess that will work.

Yummy Thursday dinner at Illegal Pete's. Think: Chipotle but with additional options and a full bar.

South Broadway art.

Some of my fav breweries had stickers on the wall at a TRVE Brewing in Denver (Surly, Dangerous Man, Station 26). 

Enjoy your weekend!
