Wow, we are getting old. It’s so strange to think we turned 23 this year. For the transition into our “Michael Jordan year”, we spent it apart from each other, but still had a lot of fun!
Becca | Since Derek + I have the same birthday, we don’t get each other presents, but we like to go on a trip or do something together. This year, we had a fancy staycation at The Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix. We checked in on Friday afternoon + left Saturday afternoon. The Biltmore is an amazing resort + we were very fortunate to have been able to stay there!
Lux Room | We booked the Cottage Suite with the Garden view for our one night stay. It was a quaint “mini-house” with a small patio. It was so cute and luxurious + we felt super fancy.
Poolside | The resort has 8 pools. EIGHT! We stayed at the big “Paradise Pool” over the weekend because it had the swim-up bar and water slide.
Breakfast, Lunch + Dinner is Served | We got the “Summer Inclusive” package, which allotted us each a free breakfast, lunch + dinner at the on-site restaurants. For breakfast we had the buffet at Frank Albert’s, which served an abundance of yummy food! For lunch, we enjoyed burger and grilled cheese at Frank Albert’s. And last, but not least, we shared a fancy meal together at Wright’s. We had an amazing food experience all weekend, and could not say better things about Wright’s. Absolutely delicious!
Overall Impression | Overall, Derek + I had a great time at the Arizona Biltmore. We got to enjoy each other’s company in luxury + I was able to enjoy a staycation at one of the best Arizona resorts. I would say that Year 23 is off to a good start!
Liz | Robbie + I took a trip to Castle Rock, Colorado for our birthdays. Those of you who do not know, Robbie’s birthday is two days after mine, so we like to combine our celebrations. Robbie’s family owns a vacation home in Castle Rock + love to visit as much as they can. This was my first time going + it was an absolute blast!
We first flew into Denver + had lunch at a rooftop bar ViewHouse Eatery while having the best view of Coors Field.
The following day, Saturday, we drove about 2 hours towards the Rocky Mountains + spent the day in Breckenridge, Colorado for a fun filled day at the Annual Breckenridge Oktoberfest. At the Oktoberfest, they give you the option to buy tokens for drinks + a beer stein actually made in Germany! [The steins are pretty heavy cups]. After a couple of beers + glasses of wine, we decided to call it a day + head back to Castle Rock for more birthday festivities for Robbie.
Today, Sunday, we went on a beautiful hike. Roxborough State Park, about 30 minutes out of Castle Rock. It was about 2 miles round trip + had amazing views at the top!
Becca + Liz | Even though we didn’t get to spend our birthdays together this year, we went on some pretty great adventures with our significant others! Cheers to 23!
