Last Day on the Slopes.

I’m SO SO glad I decided to ski another day y’all.

The weather couldn’t have been any more perfect, I think I may have even sweat a little!

The sun was bright and shining and it was SUCH a beautiful day.


I am so shocked that I survived the Colorado Cold Weather!

I am the biggest baby in cold weather but surprisingly it wasn’t too too bad.

After skiing we all went out to eat then went home to take a quick nap.

(that’s what happens when you get old)

We weren’t going to leave until Sunday but decided to leave a day early

so that we all didnt have to go straight to work after driving all night.

Thank God we did that because Kyle and I slept ALL day long on Sunday!

After our nap we all got dressed and decided to walk around town

since it was our last night!

We did some shopping then decided to go to a mexican restaurant,

because all of us were having major queso withdrawals.

That place definitely did not have your typical mexican food, 

but it wasn’t bad!

The next day we all packed up and headed home.

I will definitely be looking forward to our next trip to Colorado!!

First day on the slopes!

The first day we skied was SO cold.

It was around -10 degrees and it started snowing HARD during the middle of the day.

Therefore I only skied half a day! ha!

Even though it was freezing it was SO much fun.

I’ve only been skiing like twice in my life and both times I was pretty awful.

I was pretty surprised with how much better I did this time,

Kyle was super impressed too!

It’s always nice to impress the husband ;]

I was only planning on skiing one day but we heard the weather was supposed to be

AMAZING the following day, so I ended up buying another half day!

Come back tomorrow to find out if the weather really was amazing…;] 

Happy Hump Day Ladies, go do some squats!

Celebrating NYE.

We actually got to Colorado ON New Years Eve.

Which means we had been driving all through the night and had gotten little to no sleep.

Which means all of us were basically dead.

We all took a little power nap and decided to go to this firework show/parade around 5:30.

Kyle and his cousin Corey were feeling bad (altitude sickness) so they stayed in.

We decided to walk to the “show” and once we finally got there it was over.

Talk about a bummer. 

Since it was over we just decided to hop on a bus and head to a local causal bar.

Here is my COMPLETE last minute NYE outfit.

I had ordered a dress before we left and it didnt arrive in time for me to take it 🙁

So I literally threw random things in my suitcase and well this is what I came up with!

No jewelry or anything because I was rushed :(. hmph. 

BUT I did grab an adorable coat and threw on a scarf, which made it all the better.

After about an hour at the bar we FINALLY convinced Kyle and Corey to come.

 I was NOT going to let Kyle get away with not kissing me on NYE.

Once they got there we ALL started to get super tired…

We definitely made a huge mistake by starting our night out at 5:30 and not napping longer.

After the other boys got there we stayed about another hour..

Then we were ALL ready to go lay down..pretty sure it was around 9 or 10 at this time. Ha!

So Kyle and I cheated and took a “Happy New Year Kiss Photo” WAY before it was the new year.

Hey, sometimes ya gotta do what ya gotta do!

Half of us ended up leaving and half of us ended up staying.

We went back to our condo and all got in comfy clothes,

by the time we sat on the couch the other half of the group had already showed up!

So, I guess it wasn’t the most exciting NYE, but it sure was an AMAZING trip.

Can’t wait to share our first day of skiing with y’all tomorrow!

Last Minute Roadtrip

Sometimes you just gotta pack your things and GO somewhere.

Kyle and I, my brother in law and his girlfriend, 3 of Kyles cousins, and 2 of their friends

all packed up 2 cars and made a 19 hour road trip to Colorado last Tuesday evening!!

19 hours is a LONG time y’all.

But I’m SO glad we ended up going.

Here are a few pictures I got during the drive.

Y’all…I think I died driving through this. Seriously SO pretty.

After probably 20+ hours with all our stops 

we FINALLY made it to Crested Butte around noon Wednesday morning.

We couldn’t check in until 2 so we stopped to get some breakfast and waste some time.

These were the absolute best blueberry pancakes I’ve ever had in my life.

After breakfast we walked around to a few different shops in the town,

and then finally checked in a little after 2.

We were all desperate for a shower and a good nap, 

especially because it was NYE and we knew we would be going out that night.

I’ll be sharing more with y’all tomorrow!! 

Hope everyone had an awesome Christmas break/NYE.

Happy Monday y’all.

xoxo, Monica
