Playing catch-up...

You may have noticed some inactivity on the blog this past week, but I'm back at it! I was happily enjoying a much needed vacation in New Mexico, where Matt and I did lots of sight-seeing, and lots of eating! Back in the city, we're busy getting ready for Christmas - I'm so looking forward to the holidays!

We got off to a bit of a rocky start as we missed our connecting flight in Atlanta, and our Fat Friday meal that night, unfortunately, consisted of greasy Sparro's Pizza in the airport. We were really looking forward to waking up in New Mexico, and with the next flight not leaving until 11am the next morning, we were going to have to settle for getting there Saturday afternoon instead. But after that little hiccup, the rest of the trip went smoothly.

The highlight reel:

  • hiking up snow covered mountains in Socorro; 
  • Christmas shopping and gallery browsing in Santa Fe while big flakes of snow surround us (our first of the season);
  • a romantic evening outdoor hot tub at Ten Thousand Waves in the snowy mountains (where Matt surprised me with a very important question... I said YES!);
  • Christmas shopping and visiting the Zoo and Aquarium in Albuquerque, followed by Trivia Night at a local pub (we came in 6th, thank you very much!);
  • Hiking at White Sands National Monument with an educational sunset stroll.
The week seemed to just fly by, but we had a really great time, and I can' wait to go back. And of course the trip included some great food stops!, but I'm saving those for another time.
