I hope you all had a fantastic weekend and an even better Valentine's day!  I had a rather adventurous weekend to say the least.  I have always believed that a couple that plays together stays together so this Valentine's day we skipped the romantic dinner, cutesy cards, flowers and headed to Ellicottville for the day on Saturday.  I've been dying to give skiing another go ahead. 
 
 I'm not exactly sure what I had in mind but it definitely wasn't the fun filled day I had expected it to be.  I spent a majority of the day eating snow and probably letting out a few un-lady like choice words.  It turns out that I'm not much a of a skier. I kind of felt horrible that my husband spent much of the day helping me out of the snow bank.  My ego had had enough after about 3 attempts down the slope.  Luckily for me,  a few of our friends had a similar idea for how to celebrate their love for one another.  I was able to redeem myself by sending my husband off with the boys while I sat nestled by the fire inside the lodge with a drink in hand.  Even though the idea was a train wreck,  Wade and I ended the evening sharing many laughs at my pitiful attempt at skiing. 
 
Overall, I think the experience made a memory to remember just not exactly the memory I had in mind. Now, I know I'm much more graceful in stilettos than I will ever be on a pair of ski's.

  1. I love that dress!! I haven't seen it at Target (which is odd since I am there all of the time). Love it with the fur vest! You look fab. I have never been skiing before, but I can guarantee I would be terrible at it. I am not that coordinated!

    1. Thank you, Nikki! I bought months ago for my trip to Disney but never ended up wearing it. It's a super comfortable piece.

  4. Sometimes when I ski I feel like a great skier and hardly ever fall and then the next time it seems like all I do! Guess I don't do it enough to really get any better. Hope you had fun anyways! Love the color blocking on your dress!

    1. Hi Darcy,
      I had a fabulous time once I reached the lodge. Lol I think if I attempt it again I need to have lessons from an experienced skier. I feel that will help tremendously. Thank you for visiting!

    1. Meghan,
      I know exactly what your talking about. I was surprised at how patient my husband was with me. I wasn't a happy camper. He kept telling me how to do it 800x. I was like "if I could do this any better, I would!" Thanks for visiting!

    1. Thank you so much. You're too sweet. It is a very tough activity. I think I need an experience trainer next time to teach me. It made for a very comical Valentine's day.
