posted by: Gretchen
I am excited about weekends that are getting full of fun and social things. Last weekend, I had fun-filled weekend lunch with my sister, dinner with another friend, and hikes. This coming weekend I have a cousin’s wedding shower and a half-day excursion on a Jeep Tour at the Royal Gorge! I’ll tell you more about it after I go – but, I’m really looking forward to more of these great fun-filled weekends! Yay to summer.

I do suggest you go peruse some of the menus, but I warn you not to do it when you’re hungry! That dinner I said I went to with a friend this last weekend – we tried one of these restaurant deals and it was a delicious three-course experience!
