Bubble Mailer DIY

I finally ran out of all the bubble mailers I had, so I decided to make one. I found this awesome tutorial from Randi, so click here for the full tutorial. I had this vintage wallpaper from an antique shop and I was dying to use it. Don't be intimidated, it really is quick and easy, it only took about 5 minutes to make. Because as the girl at the post office said... "Cute packages are a must!"

Walk at the Y

We went on a little walk out at Snow Mountain Ranch.

This is Amy's dream cabin made from old barn wood. (It's for sale too!)
Here I am with most of the Peterson gang.
And here we are with David, he owns the Subway in Winterpark. They are the nicest and most hilarious family!

Devil's Thumb

Here we are at our friends the Peterson's, where we stayed in Winterpark:

Notice the yurt outside?
No, not really, it's Devil's Thumb ranch. The place we were going to go Cross country skiing, it also went big and turned into a huge and expensive hotel, but we figured we should get a tour while we were there. This would be a gorgeous place to get married.

They even let us in the wine cellar, where you can have an intimate dinner.

After this, we headed to the YMCA, where you can also cross country ski and snowshoe.

I'm Back

I needed a nice long break from the computer. It was nice and refreshing and now I'm back for a new year.

I went to Minnesota and got to enjoy the perfect white Christmas with my fam, and now I just returned from a ski vaca to visit my bestie in Denver - (I know rough life, huh?) I'm rejuvenated and missing my friends and fam, but life will go on!

Where to begin? I think I'll start with Denver and work my way back.
Here we are at the Denver airport. I am taking pictures because I always thought it was super cool that they have a whole revolving rack just for skis. I thought it would be cool one day to pretend we're off on our Vail vacation picking up our skis. I always wanted to secretly jump inside and ride on it, like any 8 year old would!
Here is Sam giving me that look- it pretty much says it all- "Becca you're a nut for thinking it's so cool and for taking pictures, put away the camera and act like a normal adult!"
And then he just about missed them and I barely got a shot of him taking them off!
Amy picked us up and straight away we headed up to Winterpark. Here is a sad look at what all the Beetle Kill is doing to the landscape, killing all the trees.
Sam and Amy here, trying to send a Facebook message, and I was just bored and antsy (acting like an 8 year old again), soaking in all the new stuff at the resort.
Here is the new Gondola and the bus. The bus took us from our place to the ski place everyday.
None of this was here before. Intrawest (the same company that owns Whistler) bought Winterpark the year we worked there and now they dumped a ton of money into it, and it looks more like Aspen than Winterpark.
Here is the Winter Park Tennis Club. Our old place where lots of mischief happened. You could see the mountain from our place. Sunny and gorgeous.
