Park City Adventure

On Monday evening, we got back from a fun-filled no-kids allowed getaway with the Shulls.  Shay is sharing our trip as well today, so make sure you check it out over on her blog too.

We left super late Thursday evening so we arrived crazy late or early on Friday depending on how you look at it. :)

We were up early on Friday for a quick breakfast before the guys left to ski.

Shay and I were chilling in her room before spa appointments and we saw THESE!!  We flipped!  Just to the left of this picture is a pretty big road and across the lake was our building!

I usually don't post three pictures of the same thing, but you GUYS!

Crazy, huh?!  And just like that.  They were gone.

The guys set off to ski/snowboard and we did what we do best...SPA.  I'm telling you we turned that word into a verb on this trip.  Our resort had an amazing spa and we took full advantage.

My get-up for the spa...top, leggings, and snow boots (similar).

These guys were having a blast.

After spaaing all morning, we headed to the sports bar/grill in our resort for the most delicious french onion soup and lobster grilled cheese.  Yes, a LOBSTER grilled cheese!  Delicious!  And check out ALL THAT SNOW!

We stayed at the Hotel Park City.  It's a Marriott property and if you're looking for a place to stay, you should check it out.  We stayed in a suite so we had this super cozy living space (with a hot tub right outside that door).

A bedroom with a king bed that just happened to be super comfy.

And a GORGEOUS view!

This was our third trip to the Park City area and I never fail to forget how gorgeous this area is.  It's BEAUTIFUL!

And another little shot of the living room/kitchen area of the suite.

Pros to this resort...*It was super close to Main Street area.
*Spa was amazing.
*A sports bar/grill and a Ruth Chris' inside.
*Free coffee all day.  ;)
*Our room was great.  
*Never felt a bit crowded.

Cons to this resort...*It isn't a ski in/ski out, so the guys took a shuttle to the base of the mountain every morning and either shuttled or Uber'd back in the afternoon/evening.  This is the only downside to the resort and I'm sure it's the reason our resort never felt busy.

Our first night out on the town we had appetizers at...

No Name Saloon-this place has a cool atmosphere and was PACKED!

Then dinner was at Prime Steakhouse.  The steak was good, but the creamed spinach was where it was at.  :)

My handsome date :)

Day two started out like this...my view was amazing.

The guys were busy doing this while Shay and I were doing this...

eating more french onion soup at a cute little bistro in downtown Park City.

We walked by Robert Redford's restaurant, Zoom.  We hit up the shops on Main Street.  Park City has such a cute little downtown area.  Great shops and great dining!

After shopping, we grabbed coffees and our books and made ourselves cozy in front of the lobby fire.

We headed to our own rooms for a little rest before dinner.  I checked some e-mails and watched Netflix.  #cantstopwontstop  haha!

Night number two we hit Main Street again.  Isn't it cute?

Grappa Restaurant was on the menu...this was my favorite meal.  We had the best table right by the window with a great view of Main Street and the gorgeous snow.  

Our last full day Shay and I hit up the spa again.  Do you see a theme?

On this day, I had the Pure Indulgence...think dry brush scrub, massage, and a wrap.  It was fabulous!

Cozy outfit for the spa...top and leggings.

This picture of the guys cracked me up!

We ended our night at Grub Steak Restaurant.

Ready for a night out!  Sweater, leather leggings (similar), and booties (sold out).

I Facetimed with this cutie on Monday morning before heading back home and somehow this happened.  It paused and I could barely make out his face, but could hear him?!  Have you had this happen?

And in no time at all it was BACK TO LIFE, BACK TO REALITY and all the laundry.  :)

This vacation was everything grown up trips are made of...great food, all kinds of fun, and lots of relaxation.  Thank you, Shulls for a FABULOUS time!!  And thank you to my mom for holding down the fort at home!  We couldn't have done it without you!  XOXO

How many times did I say "best vacation ever"? Because I MEANT IT! Such a fun time with my favorite people. So happy we snowboarded/skied/spa-ed/ate/shopped/had so much fun with you two!

Allie Fish said...

It looks like you had such a fun trip! The pausing on FaceTime is caused when someone clicks the home button and is doing something else on their iPhone while FaceTiming. You can still hear the person, but they image is "paused." I have an 18 year old sister who is always pausing me on FaceTime because she is simultaneously texting her friends. Ha!

Erika Slaughter said...

You should, Leslie! It was gorgeous!

Erika Slaughter said...

I couldn't agree more!! So Much Fun!

Erika Slaughter said...

Thank you!! Ours froze and wouldn't un-pause. We were a mess!

Tanya said...

This looks so fun and relaxing. I have never thought about going on a ski vacation without skiing, but it looks perfect! I would much prefer the spa days! Have a happy Thursday!

Meagan @ The Clanahan Fam said...

So that's what a real winter looks like! Not this rainy, sort of cold, but mostly humid stuff. Looks like such fun, friend!

Erika Slaughter said...

Tanya-if you've seen me ski, then you'd know why I chose the spa. Hahaha!

Erika Slaughter said...

Yes!! Hahahaha!

Narci said...

What a fun trip!!! A vacation full of Cute jackets, shopping, spa time, and all kinds of great food: I couldn't love you girls more if I tried! :) xo

Sheaffer {Pinterest Told Me To} said...

Skiing gives me anxiety. Like, I kind of enjoy it, but I'm nervous the whole dang time. Looks like y'all had a blast!

Sarah said...

It can also happen when the connection isn't great, it can't feed the picture but it's still enough to talk...

Megan @ Letting In The Light Blog said...

The family I nannied for took me to Park City twice, once in Winter & once in Summer..both beautiful! So it was great to read this post & think back to these trips. Zoom has been there a long time as we are there so I totally remember that place. I also met Jennie Garth in one of the shops there & later that evening walking down Main. My teenage self was dying as I was in love with BH 90210!
Anyways, looks like a great trip & I would love to get back there w/my family so thanks for the recap!

So fun. I love park City

Suzy said...

So much fun!! Adult getaways are always fabulous!! Thanks for sharing! If you hit the home button while facetiming - it will pause and allow you to look at other things on the phone, while still talking - at the very top will be a green "shaded" area - just touch it and it will unpause and go back to that sweet little guys face. :-)

Looks like you guys had a great time! I was suppose to leave tomorrow for Park City, but unfortunately I've had a family member pass away. I leave Monday now and your pictures have me looking forward to it :-)

The best non-ski vacation ever! You two know how to do it up right. And a shout-out to the grands for keeping the kids happy and safe while you were gone!

Kelsey @ The Peacock Roost said...

What a fun trip!! Park City looks gorgeous! I've always wanted to do a snowy getaway and now you're giving me even more wanderlust for one!

Angela Ellingson said...

This looks like an incredible time!!! What a gorgeous place!

Rachel said...

So fun. Now I want to go there. How do you do your hair in a pony. It looks so cute every time. I need to know your tricks to putting it up.

Jennifer Pabst said...

Oh my gosh, how fun!!! That's what I need- an adult's only weekend getaway ;)

The reason you couldn't see him is because it exited out of the FaceTime app. If you exit out but are still on the phone and connected then whoever you're face timing will see the pause but you can still hear and all that :)

priscilla said...

Looks wonderful. If you love lots of snow and big animals, have you all ever thought about Jackson Hole, Wyoming? It is beautiful, and it is great for families, in the summer. Yellowstone and Great Teton are a must do.

Kitty said...

Looks so fun! Your black jacket is so cute. Where is it from?

Megan said...

Lobster mac n Cheese!! What?!? Now I'm hungry!!! Sounds like a fabulous trip!
