To Ski or not to Ski . . .

That WAS the question.  But I finally answered it and the answer is:  Yes.  I am taking a half-day today and heading to VERMONT to go skiiing with T and his friend and his friend's fiance.  I have only skiied once before and it involved a lot of wiping out and screaming yelling to the poor individuals innocent children and families on the bunny hill in front of me to watch out because I might possibly take them out in my out-of-control journey down the slope. 

Here we come Vermont. Go big or go home, right?  I'll just keep telling myself that.  Not only am I armed with some cute and borrowed snow pants, jacket, and gloves - I'm also bringing my insurance card! (Just in case  .   .  . )  So wish me luck!

I'm really good at laying on the beach and swimming in the ocean/lake; but outdoor winter activites are not my forte. Since T LOVES skiiing and would move back to Denver, CO in a heartbeat if it wasn't for me, I figure I should be a good girlfriend and strap on the skiis and grab my poles and head for the powder.

 I'll take pictures.

My co-worker actually took Tue. and Wed. off this week and went to the same ski resort that we're going to in Vermont this weekend.  Here are some of her pictures.  It def. looks like a winter wonderland.

Have a good weekend!
