Ski Bunny

by Meghann on December 28, 2009

My cheeks are wind burnt, my legs are sore, and my fingers are still recovering from a day of being numb – I guess that means I had a kick ass day of skiing today. ๐Ÿ˜‰

The morning started bright and early. I woke up naturally around 5:30 am local time and couldn’t get back to sleep! It just gave me plenty of time to catch up on blogs and twitter. ๐Ÿ˜‰


(My Mom got a kick out of everyone on their laptops this morning)

My Dad made a great breakfast to fuel us through a full day of skiing.


Scrambled eggs


whole wheat toast with strawberry jam




1/2 a pear


The perfect combination to keep me full through the morning.

Time for skiing!




I know you are jealous of how sexy Kelly and I are when we ski. lol


I know, I know, skiing the week between Christmas and New Years is probably the busy time of year to ski, but it was the only time my family could get together! We happily put up with long lines with smiles. ๐Ÿ™‚


My cousin Jenny and her husband Andy live in Colorado Spring and made the drive to join us for a couple of days of skiing as well. They have three adorable little girls at home and told us they may be bringing them up on Saturday. I’m crossing my fingers!



Instead of spending $10 each on lunch, we decided to bring our own lunches and save where we could.

We purchased cups of hot water at 10 cents each


And filled them with hot chocolate packets we brought with us from home



I shared one cup with Derek. There is something about skiing and hot chocolate that just seems the perfect fit. ๐Ÿ™‚


For my lunch I packed a bag of goodies


Carrots, Apple, and Almond Butter with a pickle on the side


I also had a couple handfuls of these tasty chips


The rest of the afternoon was spent enjoying the mountain



Derek was a little intimated by our style of skiing and spent the afternoon conquering some greens with my Mom. But doesn’t he look so sexy in his ski gear?!?! ๐Ÿ˜‰


Ow! Ow!

I was starving by the time the slopes closed and immediately tore in to a Mojo bar when we reached the car.


Despite the fact that I have been training for a marathon for the last 14 weeks, my legs were still incredibly sore after a full day of skiing.

The hot tub was calling my name!


Nothing beats the hot tub after a day of skiing… well… except for a beer to enjoy while relaxing in the hot tub. ๐Ÿ˜‰


While we were hot tubbing, my Dad was preparing a wonderful dinner.


Our cabin came with a outdoor grill. We took full advantage and grilled chicken in the snow. ๐Ÿ™‚


My family is a bit obsessed with brussel sprouts. My Sister and I had purchased two pounds of brussel sprouts and we all had to limit our serving size to make sure there was enough to go around.



Dessert was a serving of Mint Ice Cream and a sprinkle of trail mix.


Now we are all settling around with a deck of cards. Let’s see how long i last before passing out. It’s going to be an early night!

Good Night!!
