What We Do When It’s Freezing

What’s something to do when it’s super cold all weekend?

Hit up the slopes 🙂

Our day started bright and early at 615 so that we could miss the powder hound traffic, and thankfully that’s exactly what we did.   Including a stop at the grocery store for gas and snacks/breakfast, we made it to Arapahoe Basin before 815.  Awesome!

The morning started cloudy and tough to see with dull light, but as you can tell by the pictures ended up sunny and quite perfect.

Gus was NOT about the PBR (please don’t think that we would ever actually let Gus have beer. . . )

I don’t know how Zach does it, but he managed to rally pretty flipping well today after 24 hours of travel and ski a good hard 4 hours.  Call me impressed.

Workout of the day:  SKIING 🙂


After a relaxing morning, I headed to the airport to finally pick up the boy.  Zach’s flight got in about 2 PM which actually worked out really well.

To say the furballs were happy to have dad home is an understatement.

We hung around the house catching up on all the American TV he missed until our tummies told us it was time for dinner.  Per the traveling boy’s request, we hit up DBC and brought dinner along.

Last nights dinner may not have looked great, but man was it delicious.  A Cubano sandwich on the worlds best english muffin from Masterpiece Delicatessen.  I was in hog heaven.

And so was our begging pup.

Yeah — we both shared our dinners last night.  We’re such suckers.

And now it’s time to soak up the rest of my Sunday afternoon with the family.  I hope you all have had a great weekend and are staying warm wherever you are!



Well — I’m getting ready to eat dinner then hit the road to pick up the husband.  He’s on his way from a lay over in O’hare as we speak!



My first go at bachelorette life was a success.  And now I have my husband back…well until Monday 🙂

My Goals

Got home and did my wifely duties:

  • take care of the furballs
  • laundry
  • dishes

Before taking some time for me: YOGA.  I am so thankful that I decided to take it a little easier on myself this week be creating goals versus a work out schedule.  I feel like I’ve given my body the ease that it needed, while also fitting in necessary activity.  Ultimately, daily yoga, 2 runs, 20 miles on the bike…not too shabby.


After my chores and yoga time, came dinner time.

On the menu tonight:  Sandwiches from Masterpiece deli. Something easy for me to eat, and ready for Zach when he gets in late.

Ahi tuna on an english muffin for me.

I don’t know what’s better here…the muffin or the ahi.  I’m telling you if you are in the Denver area and like sandwiches, you HAVE to try Masterpiece!  LOVE IT.

And now . . . I’m gonna wrap up things around here and pick up the boy! 🙂

Quesiton of the Night:  What’s your favorite sandwhich place?

Masterpiece all the way 🙂
