A Quick Note

Hi! Just wanted to write a super quick post to tell you guys D and I are off to enjoy our first ski weekend in Switzerland! Well, we don't leave until tomorrow, but I've got some laundry to finish, some energy balls to make (so we don't starve on the slopes), and oh yeah, a bag to pack...so I'll be a little MIA on the blog and in Twitterland from now until we return Monday night. Can I just tell you guys how BEYOND excited I am for this ski-cation? Zermatt has been on our "must-see" list ever since...don't laugh...Ben the Bachelor proposed to that horrible grinch of a girlfriend, Courtney, on a mountain top there at the end of his season. I remember drooling over the proposal backdrop, The Matterhorn, and thinking, "Dang. We need to go there. Like, now." Thankfully D was on board and a trip opportunity came up, so off to Zermatt we go! 

{Ben and the Matterhorn. I'm going to be skiing RIGHT. THERE!}

{Can this be my balcony, please?}

While we are there, WiFi will be scarce, but I'm going to try my hardest to Instagram as many photos as you guys will tolerate. So, if you want to see the snow, the fondue (because that's DEFINITELY happening), and our views of this adorable Swiss ski town, be sure to follow me via Instagram (username: @CaseyCote) and don't miss a beat!

Also, I'm trying diligently to email back each and every one of you who responded to my last two posts. If you don't get an email back from me today, I promise I will resume my thankful emails to you next week! A few of you who sent me sweet comments are still no-reply bloggers, so read this post and fix it so I can find you and email you back! I hate leaving you hanging! Ok, enough chatter, I'm off to go try and shove the annoying amount of fair isle sweaters I bought for this trip into my suitcase. When in Switzerland, dress as the Swiss do, right?
Auf Wiedersehen!

  7. Seeing those photos makes me want to be a skier so I could go there, too. Wait. Scratch that. I want to just go and drink hot chocolate with Bailey's in it while everyone else skis. Have a blast (oh and keep an eye on my Instagram this weekend...I have a special visitor coming into town!)

  9. Ohhh you will LOVE Zermatt! We've been there twice - on our first Swiss trip pre-kids for Christmas and then when our son was a few months old we went back for another visit (my header piccie is from Zermatt). There are some great apres ski bars, ice skating, skiing (at one point you can ski into either Italy, CH or France), SO MUCH FUN! It's one of my favs in Europe, enjoy!

  13. I totally laughed at your reason for wanting to go to Zermatt, but that's because I think it's an awesome reason! haha. I can't wait to see your pictures once you get back!

  14. I visited Zermatt years ago during a study abroad class, and I would love to visit again with my husband in tow. He thankfully would love to see Switzerland some day. :)

    Have tons of fun skiing in Switzerland!

  19. I've been absolutely droooooooling over your Swiss photos on Instagram -- and this post definitely isn't helping! My fiance and I are in the planning process for our honeymoon, and I feel like I should send you a giant ol' email begging for requests for Europe. I'm such a travel buff that I really can't narrow the list down to a few destinations... sigh. So much of the world to see. Hope you're having an amazing time!
