In Aspen! Took my first ski lesson - Beginner's Magic, though they put me on level 3 cause I'm such a natural athlete :)

The instructor, Kermit, was sooooo good! I had a great time and learned lots!

I felt so confident I could ski on my own after yesterday's lesson, that I got a free ski pass from my cousin (she works at the resort - score!) and went out and rode green slopes all day. It wasn't a good decision: I should've taken one more lesson at least before doing this. Fell lots and lots, but had tons of fun and by the end I was getting pretty good.

Merry Christmas to all!

I am in Aspen, Colorado, visiting a cousin that lives here with her husband - she is 5 months pregnant so this is a very special Christmas for them. We have TONS of snow and I am learning to ski (or to ski better) and having a great time. It's also my mom's birthday today - a Christmas baby she was.

Have a great holiday everyone, enjoy this family time!

Took my 2nd ski lesson - level 4 "Beginners magic". It was great and i was with 4 other girls who were very supportive of each other, and the instructor, Pops, was so nice! A great day. After the lesson me and one of the girls went up the lift again and met up with Kermit, the other instructor, and he came down the mountain with us, giving us some great tips. Now I'm ready to ride some blue slopes!

Travel day - no exercise whatsoever. Saw Paris Hilton at the Aspen airport, going through security like everyone else. That's hot :)
