city girl’s guide to the wild west, aspen edition

3 Aug

We did it.

We finally did it.

We finally made it to Aspen for a glitzy girls weekend away from Summit.

It only took a year to put our grand plan in motion, and while it was only 48 hours away from home, Mercedes and I came back rejuvenated and ready to kick off the second half of the summer conference/wedding season. Just in time too because it’s been non-stop since we’ve been back!

We ooohed and ahhhhed at some of the most iconic sights of the Rocky Mountains, put on make-up (GASP!!!) and hobnobbed with the well-to-do, passed on a nice dinner in exchange for a huge plate of pad thai and crispy gyoza, witnessed the “vomit comet” in full force, and strolled down Main Street in search of antiques and other tchotchkes.

It was glorious and the best part was that the following weekend, Mercedes and I participated in the Rugged Maniac…aka we spent the better part of Saturday flouncing through pools of mud and jumping over fire.
