A Long-Overdue "For Real" Vacation!

So, besides our honeymoon, Chris and I haven't actually taken a real vacation together. We have dreams of visiting my friend and her husband in Sheffield, England... someday :) But to tide us over, we're going to take a long weekend and road trip it over to Breckenridge, CO (Feb19-22)! Now, I'm not a big fan of the cold (Galveston or Hawaii sound great right now), but at least Colorado has snow, so you don't freeze and have nothing to show for it besides frostbite and a couple less toes.

Moving on... I booked a way cute room, with a private balcony, view of the mountains, fireplace, the whole shoot-and-shebang (if you're at the website, it's Rm 3). We are talking about snowboarding a day or two also (we'll see how many appendages they want for the price of lift tickets). If you've ever been to Breck, it would be great to know if you found a great restaurant or shop, or little-known hole in the wall off the beaten path :)

Last but not least, if anyone knows of a pair of ski pants (mammoth size) I could borrow, I don't really want to buy some since it will probably be a (long) while before we go skiing again, but if I must, then I must... :)


  1. Good for you guys, sounds like a FUN trip!!! I've never been to Breckenridge but I love Colorado PERIOD so I'm sure it will be beyond gorgeous. I've also never been skiing OR snowboarding but I've always wanted to go. But afterwards I would probably be short an appendage or two for reasons OTHER than trading for a lift ticket.

  2. I'm so excited for your getaway! The room is beautiful! :) I'm also excited that you're blogging more - yea!! :)

  3. So excited for you! I went to the site- the room looks awesome!

  4. Great pick on the rooms! You've got the best one! Have fun!!!
