No I haven't stopped blogging! I don't know what has kept me from updating in the past few weeks but since I've been away for so long this might be a long and disjointed blog. With not very many pictures. Let's see, where to start. Well, two weekends ago we had a couple of birthday parties to attend. Our friend CJ threw a surprise party for his wife at the West Woods Golf Club Bar & Grill that is pretty close to our house but we'd never been to. Jane was surprised and we had a great night meeting new friends. We also attended Lily's first birthday party, which was butterfly themed. Lily did a great job on her cake and it was fun to catch up with Amy and Dion and Steve and Lindsay. Also that weekend we went skiing at Vail. I really wanted to try out a new ski resort because we'd only gone to Keystone all season. I really liked that at Vail you park in an underground parking garage and then you have just a very short walk to the lifts. And the village is SO adorable. I didn't like the actual slopes as much as Keystone though. I felt like I was catwalking a lot (which is where you are on a flat area and have to propel yourself) and that I had to take various lifts to get where I wanted. I think a lot of that is probably because Vail is an older resort. It was actually extremely warm up there that day and I was too hot in my ski gear! Who knew that could happen? Unfortunately, I think that might have been our last ski day of the season because it has been so unseasonably warm and there was never a really good snow base to begin with.
Last weekend we vowed not to make any plans and we did a really good job of it. We got to take care of a lot of housekeeping type items and I was able to enjoy running outside, Ryan got to work a little on The Church Lady and he tore down the rest of the back fence that the wind didn't blow over. Now our dogs have a huge area to roam around in because the neighbors behind us have a very oversized yard. We also both enjoyed some pampering massages. It was a wonderful weekend! Sometimes I think the most mundane weekends can also be the most enjoyable.
I read a couple books in the last couple weeks, one of which I loved: Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See. I also watched the movie Bridesmaids which I found pretty hilarious because I'm easily amused with raunchy humor and I appreciated that the humor was coming from other females.
