Life lately: new skis for Mazen and me, good eats, and lots of February!
Mazen and I are ready to ski!
Last year Mazen learned to ski, and I brushed up on my skills.
The lines at the ski rental were so long and rental fees add up. We knew if skiing was something we were going to stick with, we should go ahead and buy our own gear.
Now we can go straight from car to slopes (buying our lift tickets online) without encountering any people, which is key for COVID safety as well.
We went to Freestyle, which is a local shop here in town, and were properly fitted.
I knew I could look for used gear or comparison shop online for a discount, but I also knew correct fit would be key and we wanted to support a local store. So I got a nice women’s setup that should last me until I am ready to retire from skiing!
Here’s what I bought:
Look at the INSIDE of these!! They are so cozy.
Mazen’s skis are used
Since he’ll likely outgrow them! And we can trade them in next year for another used pair.
Birch will learn next year
We hope! This year he’s happy prancing around in his boots.
And staying cozy with his animals <3
Especially Koala! He’s the favorite.
Eggs, orange, English muffin + PlayDoh.
What was next to me:
Tuna Salad Melts
Blue Apron Panko Chicken
This dinner was EPIC – especially the hot honey sauce and cilantro rice!
Miso soup, edamame, fancy tempura tuna roll and some lighter rolls on the other side.
Spaghetti + Meatballs!
Lego Brother Time
Look who I did a ride with – Michael Scott!!
We LOVE the “How Do Dinosaurs…” series!
