End of Holiday.....sigh....

Please excuse all my typos and seemingly lazy typing. I am on my laptop and I am missing a key and not used to this keyboard. Pathetic, aren't I?

Today is my last day at the spa. It has been so nice to be pampered and spoiled for the last few days. I have loved it but...I am ready to go home. I miss my family!

Here are a few shots from my trip. I didn't realize how much I missed the mountains! They are so beautiful here. The views are amazing. This picture was taken while in the car on one of our many excursions.

Isn't it amazing?

The good news is I am feeling very relaxed and good. The bad news is we found not only the See's candy shop but also the Rocky Mountain chocolate store so....none of my clothes fit. We didn't eat THAT much...and the chocolate covered apples count as fruit, right? At Sees my dear friend Michelle introduced me to the Molasses sticks. Oh my... LOVE those! In the picture here, we have chocolate covered grahams, oreos and pepermint sticks. Yes, I think we will be stopping by one more time on our way out today.

We found this cute hat shop the other nite and tried on tons of hats trying to find one like the hat Catherine Jeta Jones wore in the movie With Reservations. So cute! This isn't anywhere near the hat, is way cute! You will also notice that my hair is straight in this shot. I had it done and they straightened it. It was awesome! It made me miss my straight hair. Of course, in Florida, it is never so smooth and silky. The humidity makes it have a mind of it's own.

Lastly, here is another project we did at leadership last week. It was really fun to do. It is a trifold card meaning it opens on the right and then again on the left. The dots along the side are rubons as well as the tiny white flower on the chipboard heart. Did you know the rubons come in black and white? Very cool! I also love our new striped ribbon. Yes, I did do this card a bit different from the example, but not too much. I added the touquoise strip along the diagonal. I just felt it needed a little something more.

I fly home tonight and tomorrow. Red eye with three stops. Whose idea was this again? Most likely mine. Believe it or not, I cancelled my foot and scalp massage for today so I could just vegg in the hammock with my book. It was lovely. Besides....I had to finish that book before I got on the plane. I have two more dying to be read! I finished Atonement by who ever that was, and am not debating on where I should read The Sex Life of Cannibles or the cute mystery book Michelle gave me.....oh, these decisions are so hard! I also have a book by Suzanne Somers about aging, yeah, that will be an 'at home' read. Interesting but probably not enough to entertain me on a plane where I most likely will be sandwiched between two body builders. Please let that not be true!

See you in Florida!
