Weekend Recap

Well, to say the least, this weekend was pretty fantastic.  Even though we got a late start on Friday evening, we managed to still spend a few hours drinking champagne in front of the fire.  But only half a bottle, because as soon as I popped the cork it shot up like a fountain and half the bottle went EVERYWHERE.   But a fire was built, drinks were had and knitting commenced.  Our villa was more like a charming cabin - it was absolutely adorable.  We had great views, ordered room service which included some freebies and took advantage of some of the resort's many amenities.

Some highlights include ::
  • Saturday afternoon cross-country skiing.  I'm not a skier.  I'm definitely not a skier.  But I enjoyed the flat surface aspect of skiing.  It was safe.  Plus, it was a great workout.  Oh and did I mention it was free?  Because it was.
  • Relaxing by the fire post skiing.  With knitting in hand and cute orange tabbies checking everything out right outside our windows.
  • Watching the KU game because the Big 12 Network came in!
  • Drinking beers in the lounge while a wedding party was being photographed right outside.  They were freezing, but they were happy.
  • Swimming + steam room.  Need I say more?
  • Dinner, which featured pasta, espresso-crusted steak for my main man, red wine and creme brulee. Heaven.
  • More fires.
  • Wine tasting at Galena Cellars.  6 samples for $3!  
  • Pizza
  • The home of Ulysses S. Grant.  
  • Hills - so many hills.  Snow-covered rolling hills.  Horses.  
  • 50 degree weather!!!!!
How were your weekends?  As adventurous as ever, I hope!  Happy Valentine's Day!!

A charming cabin, creme brulee and horses - sounds perfect to me.
My parents, who live out of town, came and spent the weekend with us which was very nice. Homemade soup and cards, lovely dinner out and a fun auction on Sunday, which was also my daughter's birthday :)

Pizza, fires, and snow? It sounds like a fantastic weekend in my book. Throw the creme brulee in and the deal is sealed.
