The Broadmoor

Last weekend I surprised Matt by planning a mini-getaway to The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs! We were only able to get in last minute due to a few cancellations which worked out for us!! I just wanted to spend some time just Matt and I relaxing and reconnecting amidst our busy lives. 
The Broadmoor is everything everyone says it is, this is nicest place we have been to. This place is pure luxury hidden in the mountains of Colorado Springs which lucky us is only 1 1/2 hours away. This place has anything you could ever want and they do a good job at making you never want to leave......except for the little detail of how expensive it is. Hence us only being able to stay one night! ha!
Friday night I was able to get us reservations at The Penrose Room, the ONLY 5 Star and 5 Diamond restaurant in Colorado. I have worked in fine dining for years and we love eating out nice but this was by far the most over-the-top place we have ever eaten! And yes, actually it is worth every penny! Matt and I each had a 5 course dining experience complete with after dinner cheese course and a bottle (or two) of Pinot Noir from Monterey, Ca! 
The place is stunning, they have a dance floor and live Jazz band to complete the experience! This is a once in a "blue moon" place!
FUN- Take guesses at how much this meal cost us by leaving me a comment! Just for giggles!
 I got Matt and tee-time at the Broadmoor's Championship East Course on Saturday and I was his caddy for the day! Geez, men take golf so seriously might I add! The course was beautiful and the weather was perfect.....It was a really nice day and Matt loved it which made me very happy!
 The grounds are breathtaking, this place is not only modern but keeps with it's historical touches and theme! I was very happy at this Resort, it was somehow relaxing and exciting at the same time. And yes, I sure did find the pastry shop while I was there and had my first Cronut! Too die for!
 The Broadmoor has a hall lined with all the famous people who have stayed here in their 90 year history. Everyone from President Obama to Peyton Manning.
A few things while we stayed we got to do is spend an afternoon at the spa, have breakfast in room overlooking the lake from our patio and then when we arrived back from dinner Friday night Champagne was waiting for us in the room!
 Matt and I can not wait to visit again but it just might be another year before I talk him into spending the money! Visit the website and check it out HERE!!!

Not sure if my other comment posted...My guess $200+ Years ago I was taken to one of Ft Worth's best on a date it was $250. Only dinner, dessert, and a couple drinks. But, the food was amazing. The cheesecake was like $17 a slice but, worth every penny! I about fell over when the check came.
