Vacation Roundup

While visiting Colorado with Teddy's family we skiied at Vail for a couple days. It was my first time skiing out West... hello powder!

The views were breathtaking - so was trying to keep up with Ted going down the mountain.I skied when I was younger and only picked it back up a few years ago.

I took a risk and wore these shiny leather-like leggings in an attempt to look like this. I bought them almost 4 years and finally ripped the tag off before I left. Good thing I don't always follow that rule about tossing clothes you haven't worn in a year.

That chess game didn't last long considering I don't know how to play.
Have you ever seen a chevron print elevator?

Ted got in a few morning runs our last day in the mountains at Beaver Creek while I enjoyed some breakfast at The Metropolitan and read the paper. Lindsey Vonn of Vail is one of my favorite athletes to watch.

We spent our last night back in Denver visiting Ted's sister. Thankfully she likes to watch Bachelor on Monday nights so we relaxed around the TV and had Colorado style pizza from Beau Jo's. (I gave up cheese for Lent so had mine topped with dairy free, does that count?) After a few nights of eating out at restaurants it was a nice change up. I've been lucky enough to visit Colorado twice this year, can't wait to go back!


  1. Looks like fun! You def pulled off the OP look!

  2. Sounds like so much fun! I missed going snowboarding in VT this year since they didn't get much snow. Good idea going out west!



  3. It looks like y'all had a blast. I have never been skiing.
    And yes I think dairy free cheese is okay.

  4. Umm I'm planning to go coraso this year taking notes :)

  5. Looks like so much fun! There's nothing better than enjoying the snow. I'll take that over shoveling any day!

  6. I LOVE that striped sweater!

  7. What a little doll you are in your ski gear. I'd probably look like a wet rat.

  8. I would have lasted half that time playing chess. I'd rather drink hot chocolate post skiing!
