I So Wanna Be a Snow Bunny!

While we were gone, we took a little trip, a mini-vaca have you, to Crested Butte, Colorado. Yep, home of Heidi Montag, er Heidi Pratt. It was absolutely gorgeous! I was, however, the only girl on the trip. 

The first day, I swear, I thought would end in divorce. The Hubs and I joined our friends on the "bunny" slopes where they all thought they could teach me how to ski. Keep in mind, I'm not the outdoorsy type. Halfway down the slope I pretty much decided that was it for me. My plan was to spend the next 4 1/2 days trotting around town in my cutest winter clothes. Luckily for me, I was talked into taking a ski class. I did a private lesson with the guy the first afternoon we were there (yeah, I left the guys behind after, like, 30 minutes.  I was DONE!). He turned out to be a huge help and I was able to acquire some great moves. Ok, he really just showed me how NOT to roll down the hill. 

The rest of the trip was a blast! We had dinner at the Timberline Restaurant where I met Heidi's dad, who assured me that the Hills was real life and that Spencer is not near as bad as they portray him. In other words, Heidi isn't as stupid as I thought. If I choose to believe him that is. Crested Butte looks like those Christmas towns people build in their homes with the little light up buildings you can buy from Wal-Mart.

People in Crested Butte were so laid back. Our waitresses were drinking beer and the guys in the grocery store had drunk pictures of themselves passed out. It was hilarious! My pictures won't upload, so I'll have to post them later!

I keep hearing amazing things about Crested Butte!! Glad to see that you are back and still married! :)

I can't wait to see the pictures Stevy!! Get them up soon! Hopefully we could do a trip next year...and I will have vaca time off work :) I will have to attempt to snowboard again, because the ski boots about killed my legs.

I would never think to take a vacation there b/c it is not as well known as some other snowy cities, but it sounds like a cute peaceful place to vacation! Glad you had fun!

I am also not a fan of skiing. I stick to the bunny slopes!

It sounds like you had an amazing time in Crested Butte!

Glad to hear that Heidi is not as dumb as she seems to me...but I still don't like Spencer!

I tried skiing one time and it ended in me taking a trip down the mountain with the Ski Patrol. I should have had a lesson or two from a professional instead of friends!

Can't wait to see pictures!! And how is your sweet puppy doing?!

Snow skiing is not for me. In fact, after being here, I will be happy to never see snow again! Ha!

I can't believe you met Heidi's (step) dad! Ahhhhh! And you asked him about the Hills. You are awesome!

Now you can say you met Kicks (sp?) Brooks, Andy Rodick, AND Heidi's dad. :)

Okay... I don't believe him. Whether she and Spencer are for real (highly doubtful), she is still an idiot. What other reason could there be for her music career? Eek! Haha!

But I'm glad you had a great trip and enjoyed being such a ski bunny!

Where are you? Come back!
