#LTcolorado // the lazy girls’ guide to skiing & snowshoeing

It is incredibly rare that we go on a trip somewhere and voluntarily do something that requires physical exertion. If you are surprised by this, then you must have assumed our blog name was one hell of a misdirect. However, there are exceptions to every rule, and as such, we’d like to make a case for winter sports. They are, arguably, the perfect lazy girls’ athletic activity of choice. Think about it: the cold temps demand pure coziness before and after, and no other sport has an attached cool-down activity that actively encourages you to booze it up. Have you ever heard of après-jog or après-spin??? We didn’t think so, SoulCycle. Après-ski, however, is basically the…

#LTcolorado // a weekend in breckenridge with @InvitedHome

As you may have guessed over the years, there’s little we love more than bundling up and going on a snowy adventure somewhere mountainous. Don’t get us wrong, we very happily grew up with four true seasons, and will always welcome summer with open arms. When it comes to claiming our homebase, we are city girls, through and through. But there’s just something about wide open spaces, and we will always have a soft spot for cozy alpine escapes, ideally full of red wine. This is why, when InvitedHome reached out to us about their portfolio of luxury properties in beautiful destinations, we didn’t have to browse long before settling on a ski weekend in…

#LTcolorado // eating & drinking our way through breckenridge

When we realized that, thanks to InvitedHome, a snowy ski escapade to the Rockies was going to kick off our 2017 travels, we were more than a little excited. Immediately, our 2015 alpine adventure in Val d’Isere came to mind, and visions of a weekend full of pjs and red wine danced in our heads. As you may recall from that trip, we didn’t really do too much. Ashley was one million weeks pregnant, so skiing and drinking were out for her, and our chalet came with two amazing hosts who cooked us all our meals and made sure every need was met. Why leave?! This time, we found ourselves at Columbine Rock Lodge —…

rocky mountain highs & lows

When the hubs and I booked our weekend getaway in Keystone for TBEX, we decided that there were some must-sees outside of the conference (and just maybe as a possible safety net if the conference ended up being très awkward). Neither of us have spent much time in Colorado, so we had a few things on our weekend checklist: Red Rocks Park I don’t remember much from my first family visit to Colorado, but I remember the Red Rocks Amphitheater very clearly. Unfortunately, we didn’t check the website to see what the day’s schedule was like (typical), so we got there about 5 minutes after the amphitheater had closed for the day for a soundcheck. It was…

tales from a tbex first timer

Since we landed on Sunday night, I’ve been contemplating how best to recap this past weekend at TBEX and for the past day or so, I was coming up blank. If you attended in person or followed the hashtag on twitter, I think you probably got a pretty good sense of how happy everyone was, and if you didn’t… then you’re probably not into a full second by second recap of what went down, right? What I can say is this: it was so, so, SO much different than I expected, and in all the best ways. First thing’s first–Colorado, you’re the prettiest: Per the hubs, our view from the opening night party looked straight out…
