Happy Hump Day loves! I decided to break our Colorado trip into parts because we took too many pictures for one post. Our first day in Pagosa Springs was pure magic! We used Airbnb for the first time and absolutely loved it! It is a website where you rent unique places to stay at from local hosts or you can use it to rent out your place to make some extra money. We were a little nervous at first but our host had over 300 fantastic reviews so we thought, why not? We only saw pictures of the house in the summer time, so when we pulled up our minds were blown by how beautiful it looked when covered in snow (& ginormous icicles)! It was a true winter wonderland and us Texans could not have been more excited to spend the week in the freezing cold snow.

We stopped at a cute sandwich shop in town called The Peak Deli for breakfast. I got the ‘killer burrito’ and it was AMAZING and really filling. The customer service and the quality in small towns beyond amazes me (one of the reasons we chose Pagosa Springs). All of downtown Pagosa Springs is a real treat! After we ate, we took a stroll along the Hot Springs, WOW they were seriously so beautiful! Every picture I took I felt that it didn’t do the real life view justice. Tyler forgot his sunglasses so that is the reason for the goggles haha. He’s also not very into me taking pictures of him. So if you’re wondering why he’s squatting in the picture above, that is Tyler’s I don’t want to take this picture pose haha.

As we walked down the path along the river, we came across River Pointe Coffee House and popped inside for a coffee. This place was SO cute, comfy, and cozy and has an awesome deck with a view of the river and hot springs. They also have checkers and chess games that we saw people playing. We explored all the local shops within walking distance and they were amazingly unique. All of the shop owners are so friendly and make great conversation. You can truly tell the difference between locally owned shops and big chain corporations. The sunset that evening was stunning and the sky that night looked crazy cool! So of course, I had to snap a couple of shots on the way home. The entire downtown area was covered in Christmas lights, wreaths, and Christmas trees. Truly the CUTEST little town I have ever seen.

Most of my outfit was purchased off of Ebay to save some money. Every item came in pristine condition and was shipped fast! The blanket scarf is on sale right now for less than $7 and is seriously the warmest thing you will wear around your neck. If you’re from the South, like me, and don’t want to spend a fortune on snow boots, nor really know what kind you need, look no further! The ones I’m wearing from Dottie are less than $50 and were seriously my crutch the entire trip!!! They are made out of rubber which is PERFECT for the snow any other material will just get wet and make you cold. The quality was so amazing that I could walk through snow that was above my knees and the faux fur trim is really warm and soft. I cannot stress anymore that if you are going to be in the snow you NEED these boots!!

More from our trip coming soon! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
