Catch-up Monday

So much to get to on a busy Monday!  Arrived home late last night from a fabulous Colorado weekend.  This was such a great trip for many reasons....obviously, great company being the number one reason  :).......but, while we were always busy, it was so relaxing to enjoy the beautiful Colorado mountains without any crowds or commercialism AT ALL.

I've been out West on many occasions, both in the summer and for winter skiing, but have always visited the more populated resorts....Telluride, Beaver Creek, Park City, etc.  This time we were in the more rural area of Pegosa Springs, which is about 60  miles east of Durango, in Southern Colorado.  And in a word....stunning.   And the skiing at Wolf Creek was just as good as the bigger resorts....without the crowds.  

Plus we got to do some hiking on the last day.  Just the four of us....well, and a few jackasses!

On our way out to the hike, these fellas were hanging out.....and not real keen on us invading their Sunday morning.

You just don't see this in Alabama!!

Well, I see a lot of jackasses in Bama, but none this handsome  :)

Here's where we started...

No River Otters today....

Gorgeous, eh?

Mr. B and the Piedra River....

The Piedra River Gorge.  Checkout the color of that sky.  That's all we witnessed the entire weekend.

A great time was had by all!


Since I was traveling all afternoon yesterday, I only got to see bits and pieces of the NFL playoff games.....both very exciting!

So, who are you picking?  I'm torn right now.....Love Ben Roethlisberger, but how can you cheer against Kurt Warner....and is Larry Fitzgerald a F.R.E.A.K., or what?

I'm looking forward to it!


When I got home last night, I got to catch a little of the Australian Open before crashing....WTF did Marcos Baghdatis do to his hair????  He was so freakin cute and now....not so much.

The American's are again making a stellar showing...7 out of the 10 that played yesterday were eliminated.  Seven more play today, including Venus and Serena (yawn).

C'mon, Americans.....represent.


And last, but not least, I'm starting this tomorrow.  Never done this before, but remember, I'm in the Caribbean next week.  It's necessary.

I'll let you know how it goes.
