Weekend Recap: Hiking, Naps and Chinese Food.

I have not "slept in" in over two weeks... I miss it.

Saturday morning we got up around 6:30 am to head out to Red Rock Canyon to do some hiking before it got too hot out.  We decided on the Calico Tanks trail which is listed as moderate on a scale of difficulty and was 2 hours, round trip.

I am not much of a hiker/outdoor person, so I didn't really know what to expect.  I was thinking that trail markers would be everywhere and it would be a nice straight path to our final destination.

I was wrong.  So so wrong.  At some points we were climbing up rocks, scaling ledges and squeezing through jagged rocks.  Here are some of the beautiful highlights of our hike...

We finished up our hike and grabbed lunch at Subway which was delicious since we were exhausted!  And then I had the most glorious of naps.  You know the kind where you sleep for 2 solid hours and wake up thinking it's morning so you're confused?

I've noticed that since we have moved into our new place, Nick and I are able to spend more time together. I can plan things when we have days off together, plus we cook together and are going to the gym 5x a week now (still going strong and sore with that).  We decided to make orange chicken and rice for dinner, but bought some Thai takeout egg rolls since we didn't feel like frying anything in the kitchen.  I also discovered a new favorite wine... that doesn't make me break out in hives!

And so another weekend flies by...
