Sorry I’ve been MIA this past week. I actually went down to Palm Beach, Florida for 6 days…it was amazing. It kind of made me miss living somewhere where it’s warm year round. As much as I’m loving the snow sports here in Colorado, I think I’d be okay if there was only like, 2 months of snow…then warm weather.
This was my first time in Palm Beach and it was beautiful! I felt kind of bad because my husband was in Cleveland while I was in Florida. Hm…Cleveland or Palm Beach? Not a fair toss up….especially this time of year. Needless to say, I came back to Colorado with a sweet tan and he…did not :).
The weather was pretty much perfect: 70-75 every day. My poor skin hasn’t seen the sun in so long so the first day I laid out I came back nice and crisp.
Not that I have a stressful life, but it felt so good to just sort of hang out. To not have to do anything at any particular time…except get my nails done :). Life is hard.
Besides hanging out at the pool and beach, I also got to check out the horse jumping scene down there. One of the girls I was with keeps horses down around there so we checked it out. It was fun and pretty wild to see the horses make some crazy jumps!
I get scared when I’m horse back riding and it starts to trot let alone jump. I would have a heart attack on the back of that thing.
I think this guy thought I had food..
This is the front of the hotel called The Breakers. It’s so pretty!
So, coming back to a snowstorm was kind of a bummer. But I can’t complain…Colorado is sunny most days so as long as the sun’s shining, I’m good.
I also came back to some treats which is always nice!
Foodie penpal package from Mellissa at a Fit and Spicy Life and new flavor samples of Lara Bars! I’m actually really excited to try all the things Mellissa sent me. Today I’m running 7 miles so I think I’ll take those Gatorade energy bites with me.
I’ll post more on those later! Hope you all had a great week last week!
Have you or do you plan on taking any winter vacations? If so, where?

Oh gosh I need the beach in a bad way!! The hotel looks beautiful! I went to Costa Rica for Christmas, I want to go back to some place warm. I hate the cold and my tan is fading!
my husbands been to costa rica i heard its pretty cool. i remember him saying the water was super warm..thats amazing!
Oh FUN!! I’ve never been to Palm Beach – it’s on my list though and so are the Florida Keys! I am missing the summer sun so much already and we’re barely into winter! No plans for a tropical retreat but I am going to visit a blog friend in Feb in Little Rock so that’s fun even if not tropical!

You are brilliant! I have never done a winter vacation, but I totally want to! Your hotel looks GORGEOUS!!! Also, that sun looks amazing. I miss the sun…It has been hiding for the past week! I am so ready for spring–especially after this post!
