A Sunday Cleaning & Office Upgrades

This might have been Erin's and my most productive Sunday ever (we're following our own advice). The nice weather may have made things easier — it was 65 and sunny all day. Spring is almost here.

After a somewhat rough weekend (story to come this week), Erin and I felt refreshed Sunday morning, decided to do a power clean of our condo and then went to Sunday mass at a new church in Denver's Cherry Creek neighborhood. After a nice service filled with screaming little kids, we went to one of our favorite breakfast spots — Syrup. They have the best eggs benedict and French toast.

Since the weather was so nice, we walked around the neighborhoods and shopping district of Cherry Creek, popped into Crate and Barrel to pickup some small kitchen necessities, and then went over to the fancy car wash for a much needed wash of our vehicle.

The activity I dread all week — grocery shopping — was actually not very stressful. There weren't a lot of people in the store and our impromptu meal planning went really well.

When we returned back to our condo, we were quite excited to install the latest addition to our mini-office. We used some Pottery Barn gift cards from our wedding to buy the store's Daily System. We love it. If you're looking for an easy organization tool that looks nice on the wall, we highly recommend this system. Installation (which required using a stud finder and power drill) was easy and we had it hanging beautifully (and straightly — thank you iPhone level app) in no time. What do you think?

As mentioned before, the weather was beautiful outside today and we took advantage of it with an easy 4-mile run through the park. The best part? I didn't complain to Erin once about running and I managed to keep up with her. She may have been taking it easy on me though...

The perfect ending to a perfect day came with a perfect dinner. While Erin did most of the difficult stuff, we were both in the kitchen to make some linguini scampi with scallops. Watch out Top Chef.

We hope you had a great weekend and have a productive and fun week ahead of you. Erin's busy season continues this week in Boulder, which means long drives to and from work early in the morning and late at night. Say some prayers.
