Weekend Recap

Hello Monday. I am not real thrilled to see you, but that might be because I know that this week is going to be rough considering this will be the first full week I have worked in over a month, ugh! Yeah, so I already have that working against me this week. 

Before I get into the weekend recap, I wanted to take a sec to say Congratulations to my Sister-In-Law, Ali (The Husbands Sister), on the birth of her little boy last week. Sawyer made his debut last Monday and he is just a doll. So if anyone is wondering that makes six Nieces and Nephews that my Husband and I have. And it will soon be seven since my other Sister-In-Law is pregnant and due in March! Our family is a growing!

Onto the weekend. My weekend started on Friday this week. Some good friends/co-workers of ours were getting married in Estes Park, CO on Friday, so we took the day off to go. It's a good three hour drive from where we live, so we left with what we thought was plenty of time to get there. Well due to unfortunate circumstances (a semi rollover) we were running late and ended up missing the whole ceremony. I was so mad, but we did get to attend the reception.

A good portion of our friends and some of my fellow co-workers were also there, so it was a lot of fun to spend time with everyone outside of the office. The food was really good, the drinks were delicious, and the cake was A-MAZ-ING! I could have eaten six pieces of it! We  I danced up a storm along with a few other friends and we just had a good time celebrating our friends marriage. It was a good night, that is for sure. 

After the reception we headed back to Denver to stay the night at Aran's parents house so that we could spend some time with his family the next day. We woke up the next day around ten and started our day. Aran's older Brother was in town and he brought his new girlfriend Sara, who I just absolutely love. We all headed to lunch at one of my favorite places to eat, Jim N' Nick's. After lunch, Aran, his Brother and Sara all headed to a game store and Aran's Mom and I went to Ulta. We also went to Barnes & Noble where I found these really cute Halloween tote bags. 

After our little shopping adventure we all met back up at Savory Spice Shop to get a few things that we all needed then we headed back to his parents house to relax a little bit before we needed to head to church. We headed to church around 4:30 pm. After church we all went to get dinner together and then headed to the Park Meadows Mall to do a little bit more shopping. After all of this, Aran and I headed back home. It had been a long couple of days and we were ready to get home and sleep in our own bed. 

Sunday was kind of a lazy day. I woke up around 9 and made myself some breakfast and just watched TV for a while. Then around 1:30 I headed to the airport to pick my friends up from their trip to Vegas. Luckies! And then I did some grocery shopping and then headed home to do some Halloween decorating and to make dinner.

I made something that my Mom makes all the time and is one of my favorite cold weather foods. Chicken and Dumplings Soup. Yummy! It was my first time making the dumplings and they were super easy. Next time we are going to try and make them from scratch instead of from the box though. But it turned out delicious! 

The rest of the night was spent on the couch screaming at the TV because the Broncos were sucking it up last night! Ugh! Oh well. We were bound to lose at some point, I just hope they can learn from their mistakes and come back next week and kick some ass! 

Our weekend was once again jam packed. It was fun and eventful, but I am really looking forward to next weekend. We have zero plans and I am going to try my hardest to keep it that way. How was your weekend?
