Friendsgiving 2011

It's Monday...back to reality.
BUT FIRST, check out my fantastic Thanksgiving vacay in Colorado!

We arrived in the Mile High City early Wednesday morning and immediately hit the slopes!

{Day 1 of Bob's ski lessons...}

Later that evening, we played downtown at Celtic Tavern and later on at La Boheme.

On Turkey day, we woke to a beautiful 70 degree Denver day, with a yummy pancake breakfast and the smell of Friendsgiving goodness cooking the the kitchen...

{half way through breakfast, I decided to snap a quick pic}

Although the turkey wasn't done cooking at noon, it was well worth the wait. And let me just tell you 'bout that hashbrown casserole! Ooooohweeeeee!  

We spent the majority of the day just as Thanksgiving should be.... napping lazily with full bellies on the sofa :)

BLACK FRIDAY! It was a refreshing 25 degrees outside-Not exactly what I had in mind for shopping, but I made the best of it, and scored a few awesome deals
like this sexy little number from Express
{FYI, leather jacket = instant badass!}

By noon, we were spent (literally) and headed home to get ready for the LSU-Arkansas game.
How 'bout dem Tigers, y'all!!
Later that night, we got a leetle out of hand at Double Daughters, one of our fav bars in LoDo.

{yes, I'm still on a Twilight kick. DON'T JUDGE!}

Saturday was our day to do some major skiing. 
Forecast: Sunny and 10 degrees, with a couple inches of new powder.


{I found myself a toasty corner to snuggle into. Ahhhh, warmth}

Even with frozen extremities, cracked skin, altitude sickness and chapped lips, I can't help but love Colorado!
And we can't wait to get back there to play with our friends again!

Shout out to the Basses for hosting us for Friendsgiving!

I hope everyone of you had a lovely Thanksgiving Holiday.

Up next, trimming the tree. Stay tuned!
