Weekend Recap

So another weekend has come and gone.  It's funny how every Sunday I sit around and think about Monday with absolute dread, but when Monday arrives it usually flies by and I find myself thinking that I actually don't mind Mondays.  Now, Tuesdays...that's another story.

We had a nice weekend.  Well actually, I don't know if Paul's weekend was too nice because he worked for most of it.

On Friday night I met these ladies for dinner at Carrabbas.
Rachel and Jessica are fellow coaches wives and dear friends of mine (poor Jess has her eyes closed but it's the only picture we took).  I love these girls to pieces!  Rachel's husband coaches with Paul at CU and Jessica's husband used to coach with Paul but he was recently hired as the offensive line coach for UNC.  Luckily for me, UNC is only about an hour away from here so I still get to see Jess from time to time.  We sat at the restaurant for three hours talking, eating and laughing.  I love spending time with Rachel and Jess because they totally understand the crazy life of being married to a college football coach. 

On Saturday I went for a long walk with my friend Lauren and then we sat by the pool for most of the afternoon.  It was a beautiful day, sunny/95 degrees, and I just kept thinking that I really wanted to enjoy it because there won't be too many of those left this year.  We'll still have some hot days of course, but it really starts to cool off in September around here.  After the pool I stopped by my brother, Buzz's, new apartment.  He's a senior at CU this year and just returned from a summer in NYC.  He moved into his new place last week and wanted me to check it out.  It's a nice place, but what I love most is it's only 4 blocks from my house!

I spent Saturday night in the kitchen baking these tasty treats for my church. 
My church is very involved on CU's campus and every year they really try to reach out to all of the new students.  They deliver the cookies in welcome baskets to the freshmen in the dorms.

On Sunday I hung out around the house in my pjs and watched chick-flicks on Lifetime.  Paul got off work around 3:30 which was such a wonderful surprise because I thought he'd be working all night.  Since we had the afternoon free, we decided to take this little critter for a walk.

How can you say no to a face like this?  This is our dog, Oscar.  I heart him.

After our walk we went to mass.  This week's gospel was one that really hit home for me.  We read Luke 13:22-30.  Our priest, Fr Kevin, asked what kind of relationship we have with God: are we acquaintances, friends, or family.  He explained that it's not enough to go to mass every Sunday and follow all the rules and traditions of the church; we must have a deep and intimate relationship with God in order to get to heaven.  This got me thinking because I go to church on Sundays and consider myself a "good" catholic, but many times I am just going through the motions and my relationship with God is more along the lines of acquaintances than family.  This is something I know I need to work on and it was good to have a reminder, a spiritual kick in the pants, if you will.        

After church, Paul and I had dinner at Hapa, a sushi restaurant in Boulder.  It was so nice to have some alone time with my hubs!  It's been weeks since we've had a meaningful conversation, let alone a date, so that was a real treat.  It's amazing how a few hours of QT can really rejuvinate a relationship :)

Have a great week!
