Friday Favorites: A Summer Camping Trip

Happy Friday!! And even happier Friday of a long weekend πŸ™‚

This week has been on and off sun and rain, and then more sun and rain!

Somehow its sunny during the day while I’m at work and then in the evening it rains like crazy. We’re talking thunder, lightening, hail… the works.

So! I’ve been reminiscing about warmth and our summer vacation a few weeks ago; especially our camping trip.

Basically this whole summer has been rainy but somehow we managed to plan a camping trip at just the right time and avoided rain… until the last day just as we were leaving, so it worked out perfectly!

imageΒ We bought these extra comfy chairs that can recline, and then basically spent the entire time reading, eating, and going for walks. Talk about the perfect few days!

We cooked everything over the fire, which I was super proud of us for!

Breakfasts were the best: coffee, bacon and even monkey bread, all made over the fire! Yum!image

Camping = relaxing. Nothing beats the peace and quiet.image

Here’s hoping for sun this weekend!

Friday Favorites: A Mountain Getaway

imageWe are already one week into 2016!

I’m still getting used to writing 16 instead of 15… oh well, I’m really liking 2016 so far!!

One week in, and the highlight of 2016 so far has been celebrating our Anniversary πŸ™‚

So, of course this Friday’s Favorite is all about our getaway to the mountains this past weekend.

The mountains are always so breathtaking!! I love seeing them on my drive to work, but its even better getting to see them up close!

imageOne of my absolute favorite thing about being on vacation is resting and sleeping in; on our trip we thoroughly enjoyed lazy mornings!!

We are both big coffee coffee fans, so it was a treat to have our days started off with coffee dates.

AND we had our fair share of treats. YUM!! We found this amazing little french bakery and the treats were to die for. It was so hard to decide what to choose!image

We went on a few fancy dinner dates, and left completely stuffed. I love the chance to get to dress up!

We even braved the cold one of the days to enjoy the mountains, the outdoors, and see some ice sculptures. The ice castle was so neat πŸ™‚ and we attempted to sit on the ice throne, but just kept slipping off!!

For some reason we thought the weather was going to be ‘nice’. Nope. It was freezing. We had to keep taking breaks to go inside out of the cold to warm up, and we eventually got hot chocolate to sip on in the hopes it would warm us up a bit. By the end of the day my husband had transferred all of his extra layers of clothes to me, he is THE BEST. But I’ve learned my lesson, next time more layers!! Despite the cold we had so much fun walking around and taking in the beauty of the mountains.

image This trip was definitely the highlight of this week and a great way to celebrate our 2nd anniversary ❀

Such a great start to 2016 πŸ™‚

Happy Friday!
