A Few Of My Favorite Things …

Hello Everyone! I hope you had a great weekend. I ventured up to Vail, CO to celebrate friends anniversary and for a little R&R! You can see the drive up in the pictures below…the mountains are gorgeous! The weather was crisp and cool, the high’s during the day were in the 60s and 30s at night. Perfect weather for wearing layers, roasting marshmallows, and enjoying the fire places & fire pits throughout the hotel. We stayed at the Four Seasons which if you have stayed at a Four Seasons before you know how pleasurable they are, world wide. The lobby had beautiful blown glass and art work. Check out the horses below they were made out of screen (wire mesh), I thought they were pretty cool!
After, dropping off the luggage we went down to the farmers market where I tried really hard to get these cute goats to pose for the camera but they just weren’t interested. So, decided to check out the surroundings and took a stroll through Vail Village complete with shops, restaurants, galleries, and boutique hotels. I was drawn into this one particular gallery which I snapped a few photos to share with you. I really wanted the Marilyn Monroe Original below, it was an interesting piece made of plexiglass, roses, and a silk screen print of her. I drifted off to fantasy land where I pretended I had a huge walk in closet the size of a bedroom with white marble floors, a gorgeous white leather round ottoman with a giant shag baby pink rug underneath, a chandelier hanging above, and Marilyn Monroe on the wall…How girlie and wonderful? Then I pinched myself and came back to reality! πŸ˜‰ You can see the half statue of the woman’s body below made of black crystals which was beautiful and feminine but at $59,000 (whoa) she had to stay in the store!
Later, we stepped out for some dinner at Elway’s, where we pigged out on Rotisserie Chicken, Steak, Crab Legs, Salmon, Shrimp, and Salads. What’s dinner without wine? Boring! Ok, maybe not boring but wine just makes everything better! We even shared a bottle of dessert wine similar to a port. It was a nice little vacation but back to work now!
Hope everyone has a healthy, happy, and productive upcoming week! XOXO
