So. The boyfriend and I took our first vacation together last week. We roadtripped it out to Greeley, CO, to stay with some friends of his who are basically a second family. To recap the week:
I drove to maximize fuel economy, and he paid for gas and fed me Chex mix and cheese and crackers to save time. Basically we make a pretty awesome team.
We sat three rows behind home plate at a Rockies game and got all the free food we wanted, including mini corndogs, duck confit, cheddar poppers, buffalo wings, M&M's, poutine, roasted artichokes, haricots verts in a peppercorn cream sauce, ice cream sundaes, mini pizzas, gnocchi, and so much more.
We took a random drive through the mountains, chose a spot to park the car and start hiking, and now have our own magical hiking/picnic spot.
Together with our hosts we hiked 10 miles to the secluded Lake Ouzel, and we had a snowball fight there (for real).
And we were together non-stop for an entire week and we didn't even get sick of each other!
