One More Day!

Good Morning and Happy Monday Everyone!

I hope you all are already off work and ready to enjoy the holiday with family and friends.  Still have one day of work in between me and my 615 flight to the Midwest tomorrow.

I apologize for going MIA over the weekend.  Zach and I took some time to unplug and enjoy the weekend, primarily in the mountains.  If we can’t already be with family, at least we took some time to enjoy each other.

It was a beautiful, snowy weekend with conditions that were way beyond expectations.  Zach and I stayed in Winter Park Friday night, skied for a good chunk of the day Saturday, then headed home for some intense Scrabble and Sushi.

Then — Zach woke up Sunday morning to see that they reported 6 new inches of snow…and had to get his happy butt back up there.  When he asked me to go, I couldn’t say no…so off we were!

Day two!

The skiing was perfect and Sunday was actually even better than Saturday.  We skiied together until about 1 PM, and then Zach went off by himself for a bit.  We met back up by 130 for wine/beer and chips, then headed back to Denver.

But not before I found a treat from Winter Park…

Yes, these cookie monsters as they were called were amazing.  The homemade butter cream frosting in the middle made the treat.  Unfortunately I couldn’t finish mine, but Zach had NO problem helping me out with that minor problem.

We also had a pizza with ingredients we had on hand:

  • frozen kielbasa (made the pizza)
  • green pepper
  • golden beat
  • mozzarella cheese
  • crust from Sprout’s

It was actually SERIOUSLY awesome.

I also managed to squeeze in a few runs this weekend:

  • 3 miles AFTER skiing Saturday
  • 3 SPEEDY miles before skiing Sunday
  • 1 easy mile after skiing Sunday

So let me tell ya, I was WIPED last night.  Thankfully Zach picked up all the slack and let me relax…made dinner, walked the pup, folded my laundry.  He treated me well 🙂

I managed to get to bed before 930 last night and sleep, off and on, past 7 AM.  While my body is still very sore, I feel rested and excited for the holiday.   My crazy husband is currently on his way BACK UP TO WINTER PARK for a 3rd day of skiing…and I’m hoping to get a quick run in tonight after work.

Hope you all had a GREAT weekend and are having a great holiday!

Question of the Morning:  I feel disconnected, fill me in on your weekend please!

  1. Don’t laugh at me here, but I’ve never been skiing before. You guys make it look so fun though, I really want to try! The hubs and I have talked about going to Colorado next year for a vacation, so I may have to make that a must-do!
