I'm Back!

Greetings, earthlings. I apologize for my absence the last few days, but I was "busy" enjoying the most perfect vacation in Jackson Hole, WY. It was one of those rare vacations where you're not quite ready to come home on the last day. That pretty much never happens to me.

Here are some of the highlights/reasons why the trip was so great.

1. Skiing (even though I spent the first half of the day terrified).

2. Delicious meals hereherehere, here and here (loved the fact that Rendezvous let you draw on the tables, but I'd have to say that Snake River Grill was my favorite).

3. Reading this book (highly recommend).

4. Looking at this view every. single. day.

5. Exploring the shops and town of Jackson Hole (and getting the obligatory antler arch pic - these things are seriously everywhere, and I am obsessed).

6. Seeing crazy animals such as wolves, coyotes, moose and elk. Although I am somewhat heartbroken I never saw a baby bear.

7. Running longer than I have in a while without getting eaten by aforementioned beasts.

8. Getting to bundle up in wintry gear (scarves, gloves, puffy coats, etc.) since I rarely get to do this in Houston. Fortunately these beauties only had to be busted out once. So heinous.

9. Watching this hilarious Doritos commercial and then discovering this almost-as-funny one yesterday. Cannot handle the goat's second yell.

10. And the best part of all - hanging with this awesome bunch!

I'm already planning my next trip back. Who wants to come?

P.S. Here's the week in fitness. Not too bad considering the vacay.

Monday -  45 minutes cycling
Tuesday - 30 minute HIIT elliptical workout, Body Pump class at the YMCA
Wednesday - Ran 5 miles at an 8:30 pace
Thursday - Rest day
Friday - Skied for 3 hours
Saturday - Ran 6 miles at a 9:00 pace
Sunday - Ran 3 miles at a 8:00 pace, 1/2 mile cool-down walk

Back to life, back to reality...


  1. ive now watched that Doritos commercial so many times - and the goat's second yell makes me die. maybe that will be the name of my blog/novel/memoir "The Goat's Second Yell"

    1. Your original title is better! Second favorite part is when he crushes the Popsicle sticks out of spite.
