Greetings From Steamboat

Wednesday, February 19, 2014

The trip out here looked something like this...

As you can tell Harlow wanted to make sure he wasn't forgotten. As if that could ever happen.


And so he rode with a hand on his favorite guy's shoulder for the first few hours.


Until he tuckered out and decided to give in and nap in the back with cousin, Vandal.


We woke up early yesterday morning to do a little Social Wolfe work while the rest of the crew hit the slopes. Harlow sat close to the window to keep an eye on the flying space ships outside- i.e. the gondolas he saw floating by that scared the living shit out of him. 


At one point I heard Harlow barking like a mad man and found that he had accidentally locked himself in one of the showers. Naturally I had to snap a pic before I let him out. He just kills me.


Eventually I made my way to the mountain and waited for everyone to come down while I sat and enjoyed the sunshine and a Bloody Mary.




Chris apparently thought the camera was on the ground.


Take two.


I was ballsy and attempted to eat a bowl of chili in my white cape...


Much to my surprise, not a single splatter of chili hit the cape. I don't know what it is, but for some reason food just tastes better in a restaurant right off the mountain. It's like airport food or something. Give me a cup of chili and cornbread any day, please and thank you.

And then I met one of Chicago's best food bloggers, Kat for a little apres ski. We drank some beers and talked a little shop... or something like that



And today... Today I ski. The last time I skied with Chris's family I fell off the chair lift and started crying on the mountain. So basically I know it's going to go great. Wish me luck.

  4. Haha.. good luck! I am not a skier or snowboarder, so I would love to go on a ski trip and stay behind, making everyone something warm to eat.. blogging and having a drink or two.. ;) That's my idea of the perfect ski trip!

  7. Good luck skiing!!! If it makes you feel any better one of the last times I went skiing I cried the whole way down the mountain... Ski patrol offered me a lift but, I had too much pride to take the easy, safe way down... So, I continued to torture myself (& I'm sure all the other skiers & my husband) the whole way down... I was on a blue! HAHA! Hope you have fun though!! If nothing else, make it to the bottom & bottoms up! :)

  9. I love that picture of a trapped Harlow in the shower. And also the first one of him making sure he was all packed.

    Godspeed today! I am not a skiier AT ALL.

  12. Oh that silly Harlow, always getting into mischief!! As for you, try not to fall and/or cry. That's something I would do and nobody wants to be like me!!

  15. Harlow's my very favorite. And every time I go "skiing," I really go and drink hot chocolate by the fire in the cabin ... the whole time.

  16. I'm glad I'm not the only one who fell off a lift and cried on the mountain. It doesn't make it any less embarassing at the time though!

  25. Harlow is too cute! Also I am not a skier! It is terrifying. Hope you teach the chair lift a lesson this time.

  26. Did I miss the full story of how you fell of the chair lift? Hopefully this trip is less eventful. Harlow seems like such a good traveler.
