Good morning everyone! How was your weekend? It was a seriously full one out here!
It started with Joe’s company Christmas party on Friday night. It was really fun and so great to get to know some of the people he’s working with. It ended up being a pretty late night, but we managed to get up nice and early on Saturday to drive out to a tree farm where we could chop down our own tree!
The trees were really weird…they had long trunks before any of the leaves/needles started.
We walked around a bunch before settling on one. We chopped it down and then had to chop off about 3 extra feet of trunk.
The rest of Saturday was spent running errands, grocery shopping, and trying a new brewery for dinner. Then we got all of our snowboarding stuff ready and packed to go to the mountain on Sunday.
After sleeping a little longer than planned on Sunday morning, we finally got moving and headed west to the mountains.
We got to Keystone and were in the gondola heading to the top shortly after.
It was completely freezing….
and I ended up getting pretty bad altitude sickness (had to stop and sit down a few times on the first run because I thought I was going to die). So, we actually didn’t ride for too long, but we did walk around the village and check out the shops- it’s super cute there.
When I started feeling a bit better, we stopped for a bite to eat and some people watching. Eventually we called it a day and headed back to Denver.
Too exhausted to cook, we picked up sandwiches from Jersey Mikes. I had been determined to try this place out since we moved here and it did not disappoint! I had the veggie and it was totally loaded with veg! Yum! We will definitely be regular customers 🙂
Our tree is still bare and Joe is traveling for work all week, so it may not get decorated for a few more days, but I will definitely post a picture when it’s done!
How was your weekend? Do you ski or snowboard?
