Whistler getaway!

I know, I know, I have been slacking BIG TIME in the blogging world, but that is only because life has been so busy lately. Also, I haven't had too much to say. I have hit a bit of a wall when it has come to posting.

But............with that said I thought I would give you a quick recap of our trip to Whislter, BC. As some of you may or may not remember we took the kids last year. This year they stayed with grandma and grandpa (thank you !!). I thought I would have a pretty hard time, but it was easier on all of us than I expected. My parents kept the kids so busy they hardly knew we were gone; Chuck E Cheese, children's museum, shopping, dinners out and new toys! Geeze, I don't think they wanted us to come home. ;)

I cried a little bit when we left, knowing I wouldn't see them for three days, but after that wore  off I started to get excited at the prospect of having that much time with the hubby uninterrupted. It was amazing and just what we needed. Seriously! We waited far too long to have a weekend away. Four years, people, four years!!

We made the drive in about four hours. It would have taken about three but we made a few stops and just enjoyed the scenery.

It is so neat to be where the Olympics have taken place!

We enjoyed dinner and drinks out nearly every night!
We spent most evenings walking through the shops, having dinner and drinks and just enjoying the company. The lights are so beautiful and the village is so nice. We stayed right in the center of the village so there was no need for cars. We could walk everywhere.

It was a wonderful chance for us to reconnect and relax in ways we haven't been able to do in a long time!

We booked a group sleigh ride just a few miles from our resort and when we showed up we were shocked to find out that since no one else had booked we got to have the romantic private sleigh ride for the same price! It was a beautiful trail around a lake (which was frozen) near some gorgeous homes.

The weather was crisp and clear the whole time, but unfortunately it didn't snow while we were there. Boo!

Anyhow, I have SO much stuff to catch up around here. When we got home yesterday we pretty much had to go straight to the store since we had no groceries. I have piles and piles of laundry and just can't get out of vacation mode.


  1. What an incredibly beautiful and romantic trip!! I'm so happy you and Brandon had a wonderful time together and were able to soak up every minute with one another.
