I hope that everyone had a great weekend! I’m finally back in my own apartment and getting resettled before entering the reality of work life. At least it’s a short week.
If you’ve been offline for the long weekend, you can recap the latter half of last week on this post. As for the rest of my weekend, quite frankly, it was rather uneventful but absolutely wonderful. First off, I got to spend a lot of time with this guy:
My mom has had Mochi for the past month because she missed having him around. She’s definitely plumped him up a bit since “he looks so sad when we’re eating”. [Note to self: If I ever decide to have children, no summers at grandma’s place because I’ll have obese kids.]
I miss my fluff monster, but it’s been nice not having him around because I know he gets a lot more attention (and food) being with my mom. I’ll be picking him back up after New Years.
My sister and I spent a majority of Saturday helping my mom prepare dinner and watching movies. We were both a bit sore from our run on Friday to want to do another run. We were supposed to cover 4 miles, but the trail had SO MUCH snow that we cut it down to 3.5. It felt like we were running on sand, so we ended up sweating like crazy and being completely pooped. Check it out:
So, instead of working out, we rented Crazy Stupid Love and Kung Fu Panda 2, both of which were good. I was so hungry by the time we ate that I forgot to take pictures of the food we helped make. You’ll probably be seeing the leftovers pop up on my blog throughout the week though 😛
I was hoping to make it back home in time to get in my long run before I had to pick up my friend for dinner and to take her to the airport, but time just wasn’t working out. No big deal, I’ll get back on track tomorrow, and I didn’t completely derail my workouts this past weekend.
We headed to La Sandia in the Stapleton area for happy hour since it’s a short distance from the airport. [photo from website]
We started off with chips and salsa + guacamole.
Plus a sangria for both of us.
We also got a combination of their chicken and pork tacos to share.
As well as their mini chimichangas with chile verde.
We were both stuffed! The salsa has a bit of a smoky, chipotle flavor to it. The guacamole and chimichangas were delicious, but the tacos were lacking a bit in the flavor department and got soggy very quickly. The overall bill only came out to around $30 with the drinks, so not a bad deal for so much food.
Now I’ve got to get myself all unsettled and cleaned up for the week. I can’t believe next weekend is already New Years Eve! I don’t have solid plans aside from dinner…gotta get on the ball.
Question of the Day: Do you have New Years Eve plans yet?
