The Last 2 Weeks!

We have been so incredibly busy and I'm excited to share what we have been up to! Aside from our normal routine of work, exercise and friends we've taken a couple mini trips to the mountains. I am so into utilizing all Colorado has to offer - even in the Winter.

2 weekends ago we had friends in town from Florida and we rode snowboards for 2 days in a row. Can I tell you it has been a long time since I've ridden 2 days in a row. By Sunday afternoon my legs were so tired! There was a lot of friends, beer, good food and  laughs. We had an excellent time and were so sad to see them go home.

Last Wednesday MrHoppy had his work Christmas party. They did it late this year, it's usually in January. Being in the restaurant industry they are just too busy to have their party during the actual holiday season. We stayed out late and needless to say Thursday at work drug on... and on... and on! I'm too old to go out during the week!

Just yesterday we were able to go snowshoeing for the very first time! A couple that we love to hang out with (who are also expecting their first baby in July!) invited us to go. It's their first season too so we were all beginners, just feeling it out. They knew the trails though which was very helpful. It was beautiful and it felt great to be out enjoying the quiet wilderness. It snowed lightly the entire day and aside from the wind the weather was gorgeous and perfect. We went up early to avoid the crowds and I was glad we did. When we came down the parking lot was overflowing!

It doesn't sound like much as I type but I feel like the last 2 weeks have been a whirlwind!

This week will be pretty normal which is fabulous. I need a week on track and on schedule. I really want to get a picture taken Thursday morning so I can blog about my workout progress. MrHoppy is home and up with me on Thursdays so I think that will be easiest. Did I blog about my sprained tendon last week? I was pretty much sidelined from running for the last week and a half. Super frustrating but I was happy to get back on the treadmill again tonight!

Enough jibber-jabber, let's get to some pictures!
