Good Morning! Happy Friday! And apologies for skipping out on you guys last night!
I promise I thought about you lots, but Zach and I went out on an impromptu date night. . .took some great pictures to post, and then noticed that I left my camera cord at work by the time I got home. Upps.
So I ended up just relaxing with the boy, eating a ton of my new favorite treat (more about that later).
So, better late than never…
Impromptu Date Night
Since Thursdays are my late night, and Zach has been working in the office this week, we ended up planning last minute to meet at one of our favorite spots, Denver Brew Company (I’ve posted about them a few times, one of our favorite neighborhood spots).
They had a Beer and Chocolate pairing last night, but with the crappy weather there was very little turn out so Zach and I decided to save our money, hit up the food truck, play some board games, and just enjoy some good beer and better company :).
My first beer, their Graham Cracker Porter, a classic and a goodie.
It is flipping COLD here in Denver. Flipping cold.
Zach making score cards for our rousing game of Yatzee… (we played 5 games, I beat him in 4, and had a killer overall win as well. Just saying. . . )
How cute are their drawings right now?
Chicken pesto pizza. . . Hello Lover! SO delicious. Zach had a sausage and fennel pizza, which was also really good.
We had SUCH a great night just hanging out, chatting and playing board games. We haven’t been to Brew Co in awhile and were definitely reminded why we were on a streak of going there often for awhile. The beer is great, the atmosphere is fun, and it’s just an overall good place to be. Doesn’t get much better…
The night wrapped up with me dominating a bag of my new favorite treat…
Dark Chocolate Pretzel Crisps…while August totally judged me. Not cool lady. Not cool.
Woke up feeling well rested and ready for the weekend. Since I was so chipper, I decided to hit up the treadmill for a quick rhomp to start of the weekend well.
Workout of the day: 4 miles
- 10 minutes constant pace 6.3-6.4 warm up
- 3 minutes 6.3-6.5, 2 minutes 8.0-8.1
- repeated the second set 6 times for a total of:
- 4 miles in about 35 minutes.
Not to shabby, and I actually felt REALLY good on this run. It was a nice change of pace from my feeling a little icky in my chest/head the past week or so.
I’ll be back tonight with the winner of my first GIVEAWAY! 🙂 Stay tuned!
Question of the Morning: do you have a go-to easy date night spot? Or just a favorite watering hole?
