My birthday was on Monday. I had a great time closing out 28 and ringing in 29. It all involved lots of good food, beer, and people.
Over the weekend there was this homemade sweet potato gnocchi followed by wine and a beer at Wash Park Sports Alley in pajamas. The next day there was a run in the snow, impromptu homemade eggs benedict, yoga at a brewery (followed by an intense game of clue), a little brewery crawl (Beryl’s Beer Co -> Epic Brewing -> Ratio Beerworks -> Our Mutual Friend Brewing) with great ladies, this cake, and the movie Shrek. I rounded out the weekend with a bomb Sunday morning brunch at Denver Biscuit Co.
On my actual birthday my manager made me cupcakes (shown above) and gave me a balloon and card from the Noosa team. Then I went home and baked this cake (<- omg, so good!!). Shortly after I pulled it out of the oven my favorite ladies in Denver came over to drink wine, eat cake, and hang out in sweat pants.
It was all pretty awesome.
And these things are cool too:
- Strawberries and rhubarb: rhubarb crumble, juicy strawberry pistachio bake, strawberry rhubarb cobbler with honey butter biscuits
- A grown up slumber party and an adult dinner party. Both of them sound fantastic.
- This clip is a little inspiration for all you haters of running out there. I used to hate running too.
- Funny guys are the best type of guys.
- All this embroidery.
And some fun pictures from the weekend:
