Today’s post is TELLURIDE PART TWO! If you missed PART ONE, you should go back and catch up 🙂 .
Day 3 started out just like the others…woke up, Andrew made breakfast and we enjoyed the coziness of it all 🙂 .
All my boarders and skiers were excited to get back out on the mountain! Here we are heading to the gondola around 8:00 to kick off our day.
I know I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again…Telluride, you are BEAUTIFUL!!
I helped Andrew get everyone dropped off at ski school and/or lessons and then headed back to my spot for coffee and reading. #iwasnthatingit
Andrew sent me this super gorgeous pic from the mountain.
On this day, Smith had a private snowboarding lesson for half the day, so these two hit the slopes together.
Hot chocolate is a must when you ski!
I don’t have pics to document it…but, I got Smith from his lesson and we met Andrew and K for lunch. After that, they kept on skiing/snowboarding and I headed back to do some laundry, straighten up, etc. Then, at 3:00, I went back to help get the little girls from ski school. They all cleaned up and then…
…we headed out for dinner!
Photo with my kids or The North Face ad? Ha!
(Side note, you can find all of our jackets still! Here you go: I couldn’t find Smith’s any longer, but ME//ASHBY//MADELEY//KENSINGTON can still be found! My sweater, unfortunately is no longer available.)
On this night, we had reservations at Rustico, and it was one of our favorite meals!! This spot is tiny and cozy but we had the best seat in the house. See that empty table by the girls? That was ours!

My girls were playing a serious game of Spot It before dinner!
It was just the coziest, yummiest spot for dinner. Who doesn’t love pasta?!
The next morning was New Year’s Eve! We decided to explore the town on this day instead of hitting the mountain.
Telluride has the cutest little town. There aren’t any chain stores/restaurants, so it’s all unique and original.
Oh look! I made the pic too!
I love this boy!!
We were having no fun at all 😉 .
He’s such a great girl dad 🙂 .
We always love a bookstore!!
Later in the afternoon, we went back to our place and watched some college football before our fun big NYE dinner out! We had reservations at The New Sheridan Hotel for their prefixed NYE dinner.
It was such a sweet time at our table that night reminiscing about 2019 and getting ready for 2020.
After dinner, we headed back to our place to watch the ball drop. And then we stayed up until 1:00 AM watching Live PD. Bahahaha! Once you start, you can’t stop!!!
The next morning, we slept late…
…and were all smiles in 2020.
After our lazy morning, we headed back up to Mountain Village for some other fun activities…
It snowed so much on New Year’s Day!!! The gondola ride was even more fun in the snow!
The snow was coming down, and the Shull kids were loving it!
We stopped for Nutella crepes because…YEAH!
After that, the kiddos all skated in the snow! This was one of their very favorite things to do while we were in Telluride. It was cold and snowy, but they did it all afternoon!
Meanwhile, some genius put a Starbucks RIGHT NEXT TO THE OUTDOOR RINK! We sat under heaters outside, sipped our coffees and watched them go!
This dinner was even more fun because…
…we got to watch Tab officiate the Rose Bowl!! See him? We had the best table and were able to enjoy the second half there!
Her face sums us all up!
That wraps up PART TWO!
I hope you all have a great start to your week! See you guys back here tomorrow for a little bit of this and a little bit of that! xo
