Half Pipe Here I Come!
Gotta love being a teacher and the long weekends that come along with it...
Chris and I have had the greatest weekend! At the lovely gesture of some of our friends, we were able to stay up in the mountains for the weekend and get 2 solid days on the slopes in. Day 1 was at Keystone and Day 2 was at Vail. Due to a cold snap in the city, most of the city slickers stayed bundled up in their homes and left the slopes WIDE open! It was amazing! Chris was so patient with me as I worked on my snowboarding techniques. I still can't keep up with him all the time, but soon enough...soon enough...:)
On a funny note, I have elected to NOT wear a hat anymore when I snowboard. Why? You ask? Let's just say when I heard a father tell his daugher, "Just let this 'sir' pass you" referring to MOI, that I decided that maybe I needed to let my ponytail show.
In other news, we got quite the kick in the pants this past week when we recieved a letter reminding us that our lease will be up on the 30th of April. It's hard to believe we have already been here nearly a year. That means the house hunt has officially been kicked into high gear! Keep your fingers crossed that we find our first home with ease and good spirits.
