So, holy goodness, I am so backed up on my 365 tasks for the year. I don’t know if I can possibly catch up. But I’m going to try!
I will be filling in the gaps over the next few weeks hoping to get all of them done by the end of the year.
One I can check off is smoke a cigar! And I can’t say I much enjoyed it…
I went to a whisky tasting last Friday night and got a free cigar with my ticket.
So today, while watching football with some friends, we shared the cigar.
I can’t really understand why people enjoy it, but to each their own.
So I came across this restaurant a couple years ago in downtown Denver called Vesta. I do not remember why but it really caught my eye and I have been meaning to try it ever since.
Today is my birthday, so no better day than today. Holy goodness, it was so delicious!
Six friends came along. They had a 38 ounce ribeye that sounded just amazing! So three of us shared it.
The idea of the restaurant is that it’s a “dipping” restaurant so most of the dishes come with lots of sauces and you dip everything. The steak was great. We also got dipping sauces with pita bread, a huge charcuterie plate and amazing dessert.
The best part though, my friends spending a great birthday with me and enjoying great food.
I had a very different idea of what this meant when I put this on the list for the year. I anticipated that it would mean fine art painting. But after buying a house that is simply not the case.
I spent today painting my kitchen. I am overjoyed with how the house is coming along.
Here are photos of my kitchen on move in day:
Now I have taken down some of the cabinets, painted the walls and painted the cabinets. Take a look:
The next exciting step is building these cool shelves to put up in place of the cabinets:
And, I have already picked out a color for the bathroom.
Owning a house is so fun!
What a fun thing to do! Hosting a BBQ is quite the endeavor but such a fun time.
Owning my own house has been such an adventure and has enabled me to do so many things.
I decided to have a house party this weekend. My friend, Jared, bought me a grill as a housewarming gift, so no better time than to host a BBQ.
So many great friends turned out and we had a fabulous time. I think there will be many more of these to come at this house.
We had cornhole, a keg, some tired pups and a great group of friends!
Next time I will step it up and make some great BBQ!
I recently met a guy a work who is a a comedian and currently working on spreading the comedy scene around Denver. He wanted to know if we could put on a show in the venue… and we’ll, what a great idea!
We are doing it once a month, but today I had the great pleasure of hanging out for the comedians.
It was awesome. They were hilarious.
I think it is going to be a great experience once a month and hopefully we can get more people to attend!
This is probably the coolest rooftop patio in Denver to hang out on. The Tavern Rooftop Patio at Coors Field is so fun!

I went to a service industry tailgate party with some former coworkers from a different place than I work at now:
It was a really fun time! And the view from the rooftop is great:
