Two Miles Up

Despite that the weather in Michigan doesn’t look like it thinks that winter is over, now that the big ski trip is finally done, it is over in my mind. I don’t mind that the snow is still here, but there won’t be anymore ski trips this season.

We don’t bring our iPhones with us skiing and we actually don’t have real cameras (like point and shoots or DLSRs) so we don’t have any action shots, but these sum it up a bit nicely 🙂

The Sky Mall Catalog: where you can buy great things, like shoes with sperm on them.

After going to downtown Denver on Sunday we headed to the airport… only to hang out for three hours, eat some crappy (yet why does it taste so good? Probably the MSG…) Chinese food, we found out that our flight was indeed cancelled!

The earliest flight home was Wednesday night at 7pm so we made a few quick decision and quick phone calls. Booked a hotel in Frisco and a ride on the Colorado Mountain Express shuttle so we could spend the extra two and a half days at Breckenridge.

Over the course of the trip I also got snagged twice by the mountain photographers! We actually pushed out the cash to buy some pictures from them.

This makes me look so much cooler than I actually am!

There isn’t too much else to say. I’m really glad we got the extra days but I am also glad to be back home. So much catch up.


Not Here!

Okay, well maybe I am not there either! We’re at Copper Mountain in Colorado skiing for a few days! Have a great weekend 🙂

Saturday Planning – 2/13 to 2/20

Planning my menus on Saturday before my grocery shopping trip is my go-to method for keeping organized and saving money by only buying what I need.

This coming Wednesday, the 16th, I leave for Colorado for a couple days of much needed vacation.

Pre-Colorado Meal Plan

  • Yakisoba with veggies
  • BBQ Tofu, Israeli Couscous, and a veg
  • Leftover Lasagna, for real this time

Colorado Meal Plan
When we are in Colorado, we’re spending the first night at my friend Amanda’s apartment and then it’s up bright and (really) early to head out to Copper Mountain. The five of us have a condo we’re staying in at the mountain with a full kitchen.

I have been tasked to create the meal plant for five people.

  • all meals have a vegetarian option (predominately for me)
  • all meals must be gluten-free or have that as an option

With that, here is my meal plan for Colorado.

Breakfasts each morning: fruit, bagels, eggs (hardboiled?), cereal (GF)
Lunch each day: vegetarian black bean chili
Dinner Thursday: Tacos, Mexican rice
Dinner Friday: Stir Fry
Dinner Saturday: some kind of curry, depending on what sauces the Whole Foods in Denver has

I’m super excited for Denver AND not being at work. The only problem is that I know the emails will be piling up while I’m out. Boo to that 😦
