Well I did it. I went and turned 30! It wasn’t as hard as awful as I anticipated…mostly because my friends & I met in the mountains at The Montage Deer Valley–and well everything is right in the world when you’re there!
We had the MOST incredible room. I definitely recommend the King Suite when you go–it was a perfect space for all of us plus two babies to pile in to!! The hotel staff greeted us with chocolate cake which coincidentally is also the way to my heart.
THE POOL. Guys. We were only there 24 hours and it was simply not enough time to enjoy all the amenities but especially not the pool! I could be there for DAYS. It was so stunning nestled in Deer Valley. I know The Montage gets lots of play in the Winter because it’s a ski in resort with a lift but…summmmmerrrrrrr. WOAH!
We enjoyed a couple hours at the Spa laughing our butts off and I’m sure disturbing the peace. I had THE BEST massage of my life a couple years ago at The Montage but this time we just enjoyed the complimentary spa amenities without even receiving a service and it was sooooo relaxing. Just what this old tired Mom needed.
We ate dinner at Burgers & Bourbon which I actually didn’t get any pictures of because I was too busy STUFFING.MY.FACE. Everything is excellent. Even if you’re not staying in Park City it’s worth the drive up to eat. So so so good and I’m embarrassed to admit that the Fried Pickles are part of my daily conversation with anyone I come in contact with. “Hi, I’m Jenna…have you by chance eaten the fried pickles at Burgers & Bourbon?” Seriously they’re that important to me.
Breakfast we ate on the patio at Apex in the Hotel. Just FYI I had the best Omelette of my life and an Eggs Benedict that rivaled my favorite one from Pastise in NYC.
I love staying at hotels now and really seeing how they work for everyone and anyone. There were couples celebrating special occasions, single career folk looking for a break and kids running on the lawn. It’s a luxurious spot that invited anyone from anywhere. Lolly came along with and I can’t wait to take my kids back. They had real cribs brought in for the babies and Noodle & Boo for them to bathe in. We introduced Lolly to the Robe Life and all it’s luxuries. I’m sure this is the many of her girls trips to come!
Last but not least after dinner we enjoyed a complimentary s’more roast with the most incredible handmade marshmallows. I’m thinking of hopping the fence every night and helping myself to the Mocha flavored ones–they were insane.
Nic loves a hat and I love her in this Yankee one she has. So simple and so good. Okay and this linen dress stop everything you’re doing and buy it. It’s long enough, pretty enough, amazing enough. It’s incredible. She wore this dress as a cover up and to breakfast and it was simply stunning. Also who doesn’t love a Sonnet James? Every Mom needs one in her wardrobe. Gold Ray Bans complete any look and these ones are ON SALE! Madewell Bag & Shoes are Summer staples too.
Emily babe showed up in this lip color and I dropped dead. I’ve been looking for the perfect orange-coral for Summer and look no more cause Morange is it. Em looks killer in anything but this dress and chambray around her waist blew my mind. Also live in leggings, Nike Hoodie and shoes are a girl’s best friend. Emily always impresses me with her flawless but casual taste.
Um I obviously was gong most casual here but like I said…Athletic Gear for LIFE. First of all these sunglasses. They are PERRRRRFECT. And $20. Yes t w e n t y dollars. I’ve had a lot of expensive glasses in my time and these ones are just the best-I’ve bought every color. This sports bra is my favorite right now. It’s got enough support for my nursing self and is adjustable so it’s comfortable. Love it. These pants are incredible and I don’t know kind of sexy in a leggings sort of way. Really love them. And this jacket is so great, lightweight and can fold in to itself in some kind of magic trick. And everyone needs a good striped swimsuit–here’s a great one for you.
And you’ve gotten to the end of the longest summary of a birthday getaway ever but it’s not every year you turn 30! Thanks to all of you who left comments and sent messages-I felt so very loved.
