Girl's Trip in Colorado & Blog Awards!

**Pic heavy post!**

Back from my Girl's Trip in Denver & Breckenridge, CO - It was a much needed vacation & an awesome way to reconnect with friends I hadn't seen in awhile. :)

You don't need a great camera to capture the views in Colorado - Mother nature does all the work for you!



I have decided that there are a few elements that are essential to any girl's trip:


Hiking trail





Mac and cheese


Flower of Paradise

Chocolate almond croissant

*~Goofy moments~*

Locker room

*~Bonding time~*

snow day

Shuttle ride

*~Going out on the town~*




Spa locker room

Indoor outdoor pool

Hot Tub

Spa room

*~The element of Surprise~*



Lodge mirror

The week literally flew by - my body is adjusting again to the drastic change in altitude (they don't call Denver the "mile high city" for nothing!) I so don't want to go back to work on Monday. :(


Thank you so much to AlyssaMae, Mr.Pineappleman, & Serena for these lovely awards!

I would like to tag every single one of my readers :D

I'm going to get to work on some reviews for the upcoming week. :) Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!


A warm hello to beauties Ashley, Victoria, *A*, Nos, Angelique Q, Madiha, Sara, Esmereldaa, Boutzie', misSL33zZy, LadyMishel, ysababy323, xiluvyoux, and joany

Serena said...

Colorado looks wonderful. One day you're hiking and the next your skiing!? You must have had a lot of fun. I want to go boarding! I heard Colorado is the place to be for skiing and boarding. Would you agree?

Spending time withe girls is the best!

The food looks delicious. {*YUM} pastries...
And is that a massage table next to a warm fire? LUCKY! Must have been really relaxing.

<3 Serena.

OMG FOOD PR0N!! I freakingg love you for posting such beautiful photos of PASTRIES! lol *sigh* my sweet tooth and undying, unconditional love for desserts and pastries is really going to prove to be a huge obstacle in this summer diet I'm going to be on x_X *SIGH!!*

Looks like you & your girls had such fun times to look back on! I need to take a girls trip with my gfs sometime. hehe
