Last Saturday we headed to Keystone and hit the slopes for the first time this year.  When we left town in the morning it was snowing but by the time we got to the resort it was over.

This was only the second time I had been skiing since we've lived in Denver.  Ryan's been a lot more than that and he is much better than I am as he used to go when he was younger too.  I had been a couple times when I was a kid so I thought it would be just like riding a bike but my outing two years ago proved otherwise.  I was quite atrocious.  Ryan even mentioned he wasn't sure why we bought me a helmet because I didn't go fast enough to hurt myself.  Well, this time I was MUCH better.  That doesn't mean I was good but I was able to make it down several runs with only a few small wipe outs and one yard sale (that's where you lose all of your gear all over the slope).  Here I am before the first run.  I was slightly terrified but still trying to smile.
It was really cold that day!  We took a break to warm up and eat our packed lunch after a couple runs and then headed back out for some more fun.  I had a great time and am so glad I'm getting better!  Hopefully by the end of the season I can do a few more challenging runs with Ryan and wreck less.
We headed back to town fairly early as I had a girls' night with Amy and Charlotte.  We had dinner at my favorite sushi place, Namiko's, and then went to watch Breaking Dawn: Part I.  Dinner was delicious and it was great catching up with the girls.  The movie was great too, if you're into tween movies like the three of us are.  :)

On Sunday, Ryan worked but we still had NFL on all day.  Go Broncos!!!  As usual when we're home and preoccupied, someone massacred a stuffed toy.  We still haven't found one of the ears. 
It was such a cold and snowy day that I was in the mood for some comfort food.  I ended up making meatloaf, mashed potato casserole, and asparagus.  Yummy.  Ryan was happy too because it's his mamma's meatloaf recipe that he loves.
It's still cold and snowy today so I made more comfort food:  chicken pot pie. 

With all the snow, comfort food, and decorations it's definitely starting to feel like Christmas!

  1. What a great weekend it looks like you guys had! I just noticed that I am following you twice....I apologize! I am doing a ton of behind the scenes stuff on my blog right now and I think something that I did caused that and unfortunately I have no idea how to fix it...SORRY! Can't wait for you to see the new is really going to be good! Take care!
