WEEKEND IN THE SNOW

This weekend was just what I needed. I unplugged and headed up to the mister's family cabin for a night in the snow, just the two of us. We watched Home Alone movies, ate dinner at the best local diner, grabbed shakes and cuddled in the freezing weather, bundled up in layers and blankets. The next day we headed back home to catch "The Hobbit" at the IMAX. Not being a huge Lord of the Rings follower I was pleasantly surprised how fun this movie was, with just the right amount of humor. The weekend ended with a great service at church, dinner with my family and watching Love Actually with my mom. One of my favorite holiday movies!

What did you do this weekend?

  13. I made the trip to NYC to see the tree and all the other holiday decorations. Aren't relaxing weekends at cabins the best though?
