Birthday Weekend Ski Trip

Birthday Weekend Ski Trip
I know, I know, this blog post is beyond overdue!  I was waiting to get some video footage and then by the time I got it my hard drive decided it didn't have enough storage to hold everything.  Of course this was all happening while life was going on, so yes, this blog post has been sitting in my drafts because I have been waiting to put together a thirty second video of me falling every ten seconds.  Regardless, here it is the long awaited Birthday Weekend blog post!  Every year Rocio and I do something together for our birthday ever year, but this year we decided to do more than just a house party.  So, Rocio planned this amazing... okay amazing is an understatement... unforgettable ski trip for us and our closest friends.  It was seriously such an incredible trip filled with so much laughter and so much alcohol.  Of course none of this would have been possible without Rocio, Gabe, and Brian.  If it wasn't for them I wouldn't have been able to go on this trip and for that I owe them big time!  I defintely don't deserve to have friends as great as them, but trust me, I don't take them for granted.
I think the reason this trip was so great was because we all needed it.  Brian had just finished his holiday hours at work, Danya works at a freaking hospital, Rocio, Hannah, Andres, and I were buried under school work (I mean seriously, how many 20pg essays do you have to write in one semester?).  It was the perfect weekend to blow some steam and break an ankle or two.  I'm not sure what was more perfect, the ice luge that John brought or playing Wii until 4am.  Everything from the delicious coffee Zack made in the morning, to listening to Gabe, John, Nick, and Tony's drunk conversations was just perfect.

Of course, the skiing and snowboarding was such a blast!  All but two of us knew what we were doing and we fell... like .. a lot!  Gabe sprained his ankle, John fell before he even got on the lift, and instead of falling I sort of just plopped down.  As Brian said, "A couple sprained ankles, some bruised asses, and a ton of liquor. Ski trip was a success."

Thanks Ro for putting together an amazing birthday this year!  I'm already looking forward to next year (The big 2-5).  And hey, two days after I got back from the ski trip, Omar came home from deployment.  I'd say I had a pretty good birthday month, don't you?

xoxo, Michele
