Why do weekends away go by so fast? But here we are another Monday, another new week, and time to talk Weekend Highlights.
Friday after work a group of friends and I headed to Wintergreen Ski Resort for a Bachelorette Getaway Weekend. It was about a three hour drive so when we arrived it was time for some wine, lasagna, and lots girl chat and catching up. Silly me forgot to take many food pictures this weekend since I didn’t always have my phone by my side. But let me tell you, one of my favorite meals is anything Italian with salad, garlic bread and paired with a glass of red. We headed to bed pretty soon after dinner to be well rested for Saturday.
Hiking and Tubing
Saturday morning we ate some delicious breakfast casseroles and then a few of the girls and I headed out for a hike. It was mostly downhill which meant we had to climb all the way back up, my calves were on fire! But I loved how you could follow the hiking trail right along the slopes and watch the skiers and snowboarders. You could say that this was the motivation we needed to help us reach the top of the hill again. It was a good job that one of the girls had a hydration packback with her, as I don’t know what we would’ve done without having a burst of fluids when we needed it. It definitely helped me anyway, but having something to distract ourselves with was also ideal. Can you tell it was almost sixty degrees out with the melting snow?
Hiking has always been one of my favorite ways to explore the great outdoors. Which reminds me, for some time now I have been thinking about planning a hiking trip to Vermilion Cliffs. There are some amazing vermilion cliffs tour guides online so I should really start to get a group together. Do you like hiking trips?
Anyway, Saturday afternoon it was time for our tubing session. I have skied and snowboarded, but somehow never been tubing. It was a BLAST! You definitely go pretty fast, especially with tubes connected and an extra push. After about five trips down we decided to head back to our cabin.
Devils Backbone Brewery
Once we were all dried off from tubing we headed back down the mountain to Devils Backbone Brewery. The weather was cool enough that you can sit outside under the heaters where we enjoyed a seasonal flight of beers. IPA’s and Lagers are usually always my favorite. The outside area at the brewery was really nice, they had a fire going, corn hole area, and bar.
After our drinks it was time to head back for an awesome Taco dinner some of the girls prepared. I made a giant taco salad and had it with lots of tortilla chips, is it even considered a salad then?!? Then I ate two of these Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies I brought for dessert, so good!
After a few more drinks and some games, Cards Against Humanity being one of my favs it was time to call it a night. Happy Bachelorette Susie!
Once I got back home knew I needed to stretch from sitting in the car so I did a Grokker Yoga Video. Then it was time for laundry and cleaning up around the house before getting to relax on the couch with Tom to watch some of the playoff games. Our fridge has been inconsistently cooling so we also had to defrost and clean it out. Which meant it was pizza for dinner. And thats a wrap!
