Ok guys seriously pathetic that its the middle of February and I'm just now getting to our Christmas trip back to Montana. But better late than never am I right... Probably not right on that but hey its fine! I don't even know where to start honestly so I'll start at the beginning! We left Fort Worth at 7 am on a Friday morning and started driving loaded up with snacks, luggage, puppies and of course John & I. It was great until we NEVER got out of Texas! Im not lying it felt like we drove for DAYS to get out of Texas! We finally hit the Oklahoma border, blinked and we were in Colorado.... This is when i started getting HANGRY. Pregnancy is no joke... When you gotta eat you gotta eat... well I snacked because out in the middle of nowhere Colorado there wasn't any food insight, so lunch I snacked, dinner I snacked, but 7 o'clock rolled around and baby wasn't taking anymore snacking... She needed food now, so where did we eat you ask... a cute little cafe? A nice steak house? pizza? HAH no no, we ate at a ratchet truck stop Subway... Both me and John were less than impressed with this subway and the gas station... But it did the trick and I was fine once again after getting fed a little bit of bread. About 2 hours later we made it to our less than satisfactory hotel in Fort Collins. Lets just say yuck and move on!
Next day I got to shoot in the beautiful Colorado mountains and then I did actually get to eat a Ginger & Baker in down town Fort collins and I was not disappointed! Their food was absolutely incredible and they had the best pastries and deserts in the coffee bar connected to the restaurant. All in all the whole place made me want to start my own Ginger & Baker someday!
Next was the trip to Billings Montana. We left Fort Collins at around 2:30 Saturday and rolled into Billings around 10:30 or 11:00 pm. This hotel was SOOOOO much better and we slept like babies! Next day I shot with a client for the morning and then had lunch with some dear old friends and then we headed off to Whitefish to see Johns parents!
We stayed in Whitefish for 4 days and it was full of amazing meals, time with friends and family. we went shopping for fun baby stuff with my mother-in-law and found so many cute things! (Good thing we didn't know the gender at this time of we might have not had gas money for the trip home!) It was a great time just being home and spending quality time with the family.
We ended up having two Christmas's that week, So lots of yummy food was consumed and we were fat and happy as we spent the last few days of our trip in Bozeman Montana. The Saturday after Christmas we started the long trip home... Staying in Fort Collins once again Saturday night! We woke up had a wonderful breakfast and then headed out, and yes I did get my Dutch Bro's coffee and it was seriously to die for and Im truly hoping that they come to Fort Worth very very soon! We finally rolled into Fort Worth at about 1 am and we were exhausted! I swore I was going to stay awake to talk to John while he drove but i leaned forward to grab something off the floor and next thing i knew we were parked in front of our house and i had a terrible kink in my back and neck from being slumped over and folded in half for the last 2 hours of the trip! All in all it was a great first trip for John and I as a married couple and we cant wait to do more... Just maybe no more 25 hour trips! Posting some fun photos I took in Colorado, after this I ended up slacking and just enjoying the moments with family and left my camera in its bag for the rest of the trip! But enjoy and drop where you next trip is going to be in the comments! Don't have any trips planned? Then drop you dream vacation spot!
