How can you not love Park City? Andy loves it more than me. The mountains, the ski slopes, the quaint town. I am more of a beach, bikini, and palm trees kind of girl but I do love it here.
And the lodge where we are staying. The Dakota. It’s cool.
Our room is a lot pricier when people really want to come here (this is the last week of the off season). In fact so pricey we can’t help but laugh at how little we are paying for it. Andy always seems to get us good deals on upscale hotels. And then we laugh at how we don’t fit in.
Just yesterday we were talking about designing t-shirts. See, Eva farts a lot. A LOT. And really really loud. Like adult loud. So when we were out with her, and she farts, well everyone assumes it’s one of us. We thought it would be cool (and very funny) to have shirts that said, “I’m not the one that farted.”
The more we thought about it, the better this idea this came. We could embarrass our boys by wearing the shirt when we are with them… well you get the idea. Very mature, aren’t we? Our shirts would not fit in here. But now you can buy one here.
So the great thing about having met Andy when I was young, well we have been through it all. Waitress, small jobs on campus at the University of Texas, then after college a year of working for insurance companies… When he decided to go to grad school and get his MBA we already had one kid. Then we had the second while he was in school and we were living on student loans because I was stay-home mom. I will never forget one of the girls in his class saying, “are you sure that’s a good idea?” I wasn’t about to put my life on hold because Andy was in school. And having Blake while Andy was at OSU turned out to be the best thing as they ended up covering all of his heart issues with Andy’s student insurance. So while I never attended OSU, I love that school for saving my baby. Anyway…..
The thing is, I have been with Andy when we were dirt poor. And now we aren’t, but it really doesn’t seem much different. Ya know? As we have steadily reached our goals from a long time ago, nothing changed. We are still two crazy fun loving immature kids. Only with a little more money.
So with that I will show you our cool room
our kitchen, viking fridge and stove- seriously better than my kitchen at home
The living room. The fireplace is a bonus. It’s nice to turn it on and watch the snow come down outside.
These aren’t real, but a nice touch I thought.
This is the bedroom, yep it has it’s own fireplace. I turned it on for a little bit before I passed out at 8pm. The time change and my nagging cold has made me a dud on this trip.
There are two bathrooms, this one is the master bath and it has a whirlpool tub and a tv in it.
Ok so want to know what this room costs during prime ski season? $1700 per night. !!!!!!!! We are paying no where near that. NO WHERE NEAR. Seriously, who pays that???
We were hungry last night but had a late lunch so we decided to order something small from room service. I told Andy to get a cheese plate and a salad.
A little later room service arrived. I was on the phone with the boys so Andy took care of it and put it on the dining room table. I gave him the phone and went over to look at the food. Behind me I hear, “Hey Blake, can you hold on a minute, I need to see mom’s face when she see’s our food.”
I lift up the lid to take a peak at our $22 cheese plate.
So stinkin’ funny. Not only was it $22 but it had a $4 delivery charge and a 22% service charge. Then you had to tip on top of that. I thought I was going to pee my pants.
And now the best pics- loving on our sweet sweet daughter
