Work Hard & Play Hard

This weekend I worked hard and played hard.  Usually that’s how it goes, but I guess I technically did it backwards.  I played a little Thursday, and I played a bit more Friday before working hard on Saturday.  (It was my b-day weekend – I’m allowed!)

On Friday, I enjoyed a Leinenkugel Sunset Wheat at the house with a few friends.  (Gotta’ drink the wheat beer before it goes out of season.)  We all enjoyed a little happy hour before loading up & heading out to Mellow Mushroom for dinner.


The bday girl got to pick where we went to dinner.  Ummm… duh – of course I chose pizza!


Kevin and I ordered Foothills Hoppyum with dinner.  The waiter accidentally poured an extra pint, soooo we split it.  (Twist my arm!)  Side note – I loooooove this beer.  If you like IPAs, you must try it!

This is where the “play hard” ends and “workd hard” begins.  I woke early Saturday to roof a house.  What???  Yeah – I’m not sure what I was thinking when I signed up either.


This was my first Habitat for Humanity build, and I had a blast.  (I didn’t even fall off the roof!)  The other members were really cool, so we all went for fish tacos and beer after the build.  These are my kind of people!


It’s not just diet n’ exercise that are about balance – it’s kind of a life thing.  Work hard ~ Play Hard.  Eat Salads ~ Sometimes Get Pizza.  Sounds good to me!

  • What have you done to work hard or play hard lately?

  14. We went to two new breweries and a new restaurant for our anniversary on Saturday (in boulder). You would have loved the special brew they had on tap at Boulder Brewery – it was a barrel aged pale ale – OMG!! :)
