WIAW + Workouts #30

Happy Wednesday folks! Since I abandoned you all the last couple days, I will catch you up on the weekend’s happenings before we get into What I Ate Wednesday.

Joe and I had a super busy weekend starting with a celebratory dinner on Friday night. You all know I got a new job working in Special Education, but there has been an exciting shift with the job and Joe and I wanted to celebrate! The shift is that I am now teaching first grade!! One of the first grade teachers left and I was asked if I would like to step in…I have never taught first grade, so this was a big (and kind of scary) opportunity, but one that I was super excited to say YES to 🙂

Joe and I went to a new (to us) sushi place called Sushi Hai…. lots of rolls and sake plus live music, and it was a really good time!                                 IMG_2259[1] IMG_2260[1] IMG_2261[1] IMG_2262[1]

On Saturday morning we woke nice and early and headed to A-basin to snowboard for the day. The snow wasn’t that great and a lot of the terrain isn’t open yet, so we didn’t stay long. We headed back to Denver to meet a friend for a late lunch.

Sunday we headed to Breckenridge and had an AMAZING day of riding. The weather was beautiful and there was a bit of fresh snow.                           IMG_2265[1]

After we got off the mountain, we walked around Breck Village and checked out the ice sculptures from the Ice Carving Contest that was held last week. Some of them were really impressive.                                                                                IMG_2266[1] IMG_2268[1] IMG_2269[1]

Then we headed to Ollies to grab some food and drinks and meet up with a college roommate (freshman year) that  I hadn’t seen in 13 years!!!!!! It was so great to catch up and we had so much to talk about that I totally forgot to even get a picture! I did manage to get one of my delicious veggie wrap.          IMG_2271[1]

Brooke lives in Boulder, but we work really close to one another, so we will definitely be hanging out a lot more 🙂

  1. Your sushi pictures are giving me the urge to high tail it out of work and go find a restaurant that serves sushi for breakfast! Looks so good! After being sick I just try to dive back into working out again. I feel guilty when I skip out on working out for too long so I’m always happy to be healthy enough to head back to the gym…that being said I guess the first day back is a little slow and then day two is full throttle gym again.

  2. Congrats on the job shift! I think first grade would be the best grade to teach because they have already been in school for a year but they’re still so little and cute! Sometimes I think I should have become a teacher myself 🙂

  3. Congrats on the new job!!!!
    What a great weekend you and Joe had! I love snowboarding but haven’t been in so long!!! I want to live in Colorado! It looks so nice!

  4. I went to an ice carving competition once, it’s amazing what some people can do! Such talent! Congrats on the job shift!! That sounds exciting! Keep some purel on your desk 😉

  5. So exciting! My mama teaches first grade too. Glad you are feeling better and getting back into running. Oh and I wanted to tell you I tried orzo for the first time after reading your post…it’s yummy!

  6. Sushi! Yum! Happy WIAW girl:)
