It’s been a crazy fun weekend of being spoiled! Sunday was Mothers Day and Monday was my 41st birthday. To start, Jason planned a weekend away to Breckenridge, CO about 2 hours away. He planned it with some of our best friends, Joy and Kris. We’ve traveled with them a ton of times and it’s always a fantastic time. It’s so fun to travel with people who are just easy going!
We arrived on Friday early evening and checked into our Airbnb. It was the perfect house for all of us! 3 great size bedroom, 3 bathrooms and plenty of living space. The best part is that it was walking distance from downtown so we never had to drive anywhere! After we unloaded our things, we went to our favorite place, Downstairs At Erics. We have to go there every time we’re in Breck because it’s so fun! The kids can play in the arcade and we can hang out and have pizza and fantastic nachos (and maybe wine) YUM!
The next day we took our time getting ready and headed to the crepe stand on Main Street. The line is ALWAYS LONG- like at least an hour- but it’s TOTALLY WORTH IT! I got the eggs Benedict with brie crepe. It doesn’t get much better than that!
Then we made our way down the street for some shopping. Breck is SO beautiful and while there is a lot to do, it also is such a calm town. You can plan a busy schedule, or you can totally relax. Somehow we were able to do a lot of fun things, but it also felt like Saturday was a long day! (A good thing!) After shopping we went to CB Potts (it sounds like all we did was eat, huh?) for a few drinks and more nachos (???). Then, back to the house to play some games and relax and then back out for dinner. I can’t even believe I’m telling that we ATE.MORE.FOOD. But, yep, that’s what we did.
On Sunday, Jason and Kris got up early and made us a wonderful breakfast- eggs, sausage, hash browns and mimosa’s of course! Then we loaded up and had to get home. It was SUCH a fun little trip, but too short for sure. One more day would have been great.
When we got home, all I wanted to do was to plant flowers in my yard. Living in Colorado, it’s inevitable that we all plant flowers too early in the season- before the last snow- but no one can help it! (It will likely snow this weekend) But it is so brown in the early Spring and we need COLOR! So, Jason bought me a bunch of flowers and I took some time to get a sunburn and plant them. Pure Happiness! I got in a great workout at Orange Theory and by the end of that, I was done! Just exhausted but because we did so much and had such a fun time.
I’m so thankful to Jason for planning all of this; for getting me a wine cooler for our house, and all the other fun things. Whoever thought turning 41 would be so fun!
Now, I’m going to go on a diet for the rest of my life.
