Holy smokes, we are heading into our last weekend in Colorado!
We are really trying to soak up ALL the moments.
Yesterday, Brian and I took the dogs on a nice walk together before starting the day, today we are snow shoeing with Kate and the dogs, tomorrow Brian and I are doing yoga and a long walk with the dogs and getting together with friends, and then we are doing a on Sunday. We are ALMOST packed, so I feel really good taking this weekend to enjoy some of our favorite Denver things.
Before I head into my Five Things Friday post, I wanted to share how DELICIOUS and fun our Valentine’s date night was last weekend!
Brian and I first stopped at The Brown Palace, which is a historic downtown Denver hotel, for a drink and there was live jazz music. Music and good company are two ways to get to my heart, so I thought it really was such a lovely way to start the evening 🙂
We then went to Potager for dinner. So good. Seriously. The service was fantastic because the server was knowledgable and answered all of our questions, was available whenever we needed him but didn’t linger to the point where it was awkward. It was just perfect.
We enjoyed the scallop crudo (Brian’s favorite!!) which was kind of like ceviche and served with light rice crackers. Very citrusy and very tasty. We also shared the crab souffle, which was sweeter than I had initially imagined but the flavors of the sweet pecans and grapefruit melded perfectly with the crab. Yum! For dessert, we shared the chocolate chip cookie with mocha ice cream and the blueberry buckle with lemon ice cream. I’m typically a chocolate kind of dessert girl, but hands down the blueberry buckle was our favorite. We started telling all of the tables around us to order it too! :). Overall, the night was absolutely perfect and just what we needed as a “last date night out” in Denver.
Now, I hope you all have a great weekend coming up! Here are my Five Things for this Friday:
I love the deep burn that my muscles feel in these type of classes, and I love trying new fitness studios! It was a great alternate to my typical Wednesday morning cycle class.
