Last week Russ and I had the whole week with no kids! We had originally decided to do a "Staycation" at home to watch the budget. BUUUT!!!! Russ said he just wished we could get some nature time. SO I checked on Hotwire.com and found a 4 1/2 star hotel in Snowmass, CO for $75 a NIGHT!! Are you KIDDING me??? Of course we were IN!
So we loaded up the car and headed out. We spent the first night in the DFW area with our friends Holly and Jamie. It is always a JOY to be with them.
A super huge bonus of the trip was that we got to spend some quality time with Sam and Wendi too. They moved to Colorado recently and it was the first time we've gotten to visit. They even got to get the same deal on Hotwire and stay a night in Snowmass.
This is our room The Viceroy, Snowmass. It is AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!! I mean really, I can't begin to tell you how wonderful it was. I could not do it justice- I promise.
Amazing service, incredible design that blew me away, flat screen TVs, 94 degree pool in the snow, delicious food, remarkable views, cozy fireplaces, private kitchen..... that's just the beginning.
Snowmass is right next door to Aspen so we got to spend time there too.
How sad it would be for me if I gave my children great and abundant gifts and they just let them rot.
I don't want to waste it.
